Guest Article #21: For the Joy of Sharing

Perfect Mom

Foreword by Venkat
Perfection. A word one can love and hate at the same time because we jump so easily to equating (im)perfection at a skill to (im)perfection as a human being. Aarti’s tip may seem directed to mothers but it brings good thought to reflect on for fathers or anyone who measures the difference between one’s value and worth. The world’s perfectly shaped samosa may be high in worth but is of no value if it does not taste good. Our value lies in how we make others feel and there is nothing imperfect in us as human beings. Nothing makes a child happier than a happy mother indeed. A point well driven in this wonderful writing – “Invest your energies wisely”

Find the inspiration in this advice as mothers and in the underlying thought as human beings!

Perfect Mom

Your kids don’t need a perfect mom, they just need a happy you

Dear moms, the world needs you to be perfect but your child just needs your happiness. In the quest for perfection, mothers lose their smile. Please make sure you act happily in front of your child even though you might not be happy due to your personal/professional challenges . But please understand your child needs your smile and nothing else. Don’t give importance to anything in this world that will take the smile off your face for your children. The world be it people or situations will constantly challenge you. Even though you strive hard to impress the outside world, they will never find you perfect. So where are you wasting your mental energies? Think about it. And invest your energy in those little creatures who love you truly.

Create a happy version of yourself only for the sake of your kids. So make sure you interact with your child , play with your child and also put your child asleep with that smile on your face. A Happy mother can only raise a happy child!

So crisp and to the important straight-away point to Mothers…why, even to other gender..to differentiate between chalk and cheese. Yes, happiness, bliss, joy and Ananda, kindness and love are the priority pivotal parts of our life. In seeking the eluding Perfection part, everywhere, more so with children, as rightly narrated Aaratiji, we perhaps lose sight of the long term effect. Exceedingly Excellent write up. Compliments aplenty!

Thank you for your kind response Mr. J Vaidhinathanj. I wrote this based on my experiences. Being a mother of two, have come across this fact that no matter how the world expects you to be flawless in every field but it’s always a child who will want you to be just happy n nothing else. For them there isn’t anything called as a perfect mom. Indeed all that they want is just their mom to be happy just like the small baby in the pic who is oblivious of the fact that he /she will be raised in a poor family. The smile of the baby reveals the fact that they will be happy only when the mom enjoys the motherhood irrespective of their personal challenges. The mother in the pic is a great source of inspiration to us. She knows she isn’t fortunate when it comes to riches but her smile is an asset for her baby.
