Celebrating Myself - An Ode to Me

Celebrating myself- well that must not be so difficult a task, that's what I told myself when I started to pen.Instead, the fingers lingered a little longer than usual while typing, despite a thousand thoughts milling in my head.The thing is that as a mother to 2 hyper but adorable kids and a doting wife to a wonderful spouse, the time for self-indulgence does take a back seat. However, when there is a call for gloating & boasting, why miss the opportunity ? So here I am happily hooting about all that's ME !

I am a child-woman so full of love & strength.A happy soul with loads of innate sensitivity, I don't flinch while expressing my true feelings; after all a spade is a spade ! I am not a cleanliness freak and I would rather prefer a few hours of merriment & revelry with family than tending to a messy home !

A full-time dreamer besides being a SAHM, the sometimes thankless job does see me getting in to bouts of anxiety and exhibit loony traits. However, what lurks behind an ever busy mind and a tender as a coconut heart, is my indomitable spirit and never say die attitude.Born to a very loving parents, the struggles of life and specially that of a woman were etched in to my mind very early and I owe my compassionate but resolute attitude to them. The disciplined upbringing laced with lots of self-belief and hope has seen me weather many a turbulent storm.

A hardcore romantic, I wear my heart on sleeve and has been the subject of quite a few disappointments because of it. Unapologetic about the way I am, I flaunt my oomph with ease. Getting drenched silly in rains and dancing away unabashedly are a few things that transports me to heaven & back. Simplest things gives me immense pleasure and it ain't very difficult to bring a smile on my face.

Drowned by showers of self-doubt, I fade into oblivion, only to bounce back like a phoenix from the ash.A mother,wife,daughter-in-law and above all a woman, what keeps me going is the wind beneath my wings - my hubby dearest ! 

And yes round is a shape and no sire, there is no guilt while I lick the tin of Peanut butter & Nutella clean.

I am not perfect- far from it but I live my life to the fullest !

A song that is constantly on my lips is "Top of the world' BY THE CARPENTERS.I sign off with a few lines that signifies ME

Such a feelin's coming over me
There is wonder in most every thing I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream
I'm on the top of the world looking down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love I've found ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

This is off to Women's Web celebration of woman's Day and am glad , I peeked a little in to my soul,baring myself and coming triumphed !
