Things that mothers teach their daughters


Mom and me are best friends - in honest opinion more than just best friends. The golden rule to keep the friendship stay best forever was taught by Mom and it is: "You might forget to tell somethings to your best friend, but never forget that you need to be honest." So following that I have seen life, and everytime I take a wise decision, I say to myself - well! Momma said so :)
This post is NOT an inspiration post after watching Forest Gump. It is a collection to be passed on to every daughter :-)
Feminism \m/

My root teaching was:
` Before you do anything, think! Think that you're not just responsible to yourself, but to your family, to a nation where a billion people live.
Yes, a billion people can hold me responsible for anything I do. It might not seem tough for me, but it could be worse to many. I might miss the point so think, think responsibily. Another talisman that I have always loved is:
` Love when you're ready and not when you're lonely.
So totally true! It is so hard to not fall for just anyone when you"re lonely _ specially after a breakup> :) All of us know that! The best I feel is to hold on to people you know would understand you no matter what:
` Parents have the hearts to love you when you're at your worst and arms to hold you when you're at your weakest.
Everyone knows this but still you should remember it and never ever say that:
` Women are Crazy Men Are Stupid
I so agree and shall always remember:
` Ever notice that people who spend money on beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets are always complaining about being broke and not feeling well?
Also,
` Don’t do drugs ’cause you can find the same effect just by standing up really fast.
:) :) :) Goes out to all those who hand their life to things that they should own and not otherwise.
I am sure someday I will use your:
` No man is perfect — you just have to find one whose quirks you can live with.
Ever thought that what you say could be golden:
` If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
And and, I remember when I would be sad thinking Life is just a struggle, you would tell me:
` You can never get enough of what you don't need to make you happy.
I have strggled to realize that life is not just hard days, it's about conquering such days to find happiness. I remember you telling me how when one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
` Because in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years that will matter.
Yes, so the most precious thing we have is life, yet it has absolutely no trade-in value.
You made me see positives in life. In my sad days, you were my unspoken untalked of strength. You taught me how not to run in circles ort shout, when in doubt.
` Fall over seven times, but get up eight.
Last but not surely not the least, I wish to share some thing I think has made me a better person:
` This too shall pass.

And something I have learnt on my own and shall be passed on ;) is:
` Don't look for a boyfriend who would be best, look for a boy who would be your best friend.

Mom, I look back on my childhood and thank the stars above. For everything you gave me, but mostly for your love. :-) Your words have been a source of strength and hope to me whenever life became a roller coaster. Clearly, you're the bank where I deposited all my pains and you converted them and gave a return of happiness. It is just because of you that,
Everyday I beat my own previous record for number of consecutive days I’ve had Life!

P.S. I would love to add more to the list, let it be universal Mother Daughter teachings!

Sach,

Very emotional but practical post. I would like to add to what you said about Boyfriend and Boy who can be Bestfriend. I read in a post by Cherry Blossom, For a happy marriage do not look for a perfect partner but try to be one.

Take care

PS : How about a visit?

Sach! March 19, 2011 at 11:11 PM  

@Divye: :)

@Jack: Well I agree with Cherry. And I am so sorry I have been hell occupied. I would visit. But thanks for stopping by every time I update even though I am bad at keeping a check on you.
