Becoming a mother is probably the most happiest feeling in the world. When you see your baby for the first time in the delivery room, your eyes filled with tears of happiness and satisfaction that you finally did it and your baby has arrived. It feels amazing that you have given birth to a baby who will become a person in future and people will recognise you as his or her mother. All you imagined during your pregnancy the qualities and characteristics and how the baby will look can finally be seen in your baby, and then, as soon as you realise who or what kind of a person you want him or her to become, the whole gamut of thoughts start running around your head and you enter into a vicious world of expectations vs reality. You expect your baby, your spouse, your house and your life to be perfect. And you start pushing yourself harder and harder each day to achieve that untill your health starts giving up on you and things start getting out of your hand.
All this change and struggle around you makes you feel like a failure and you start feeling lack of happiness. You want to enjoy, have fun, have a hearty meal and a Lovely evening with your family,but you actually end up just waiting for the day to end. At this point if someone asks you, are you happy? you might be in dilemma what to answer then, and you might feel annoyed by the question itself, because, your mind says No, you can’t be happy, as you have not achieved what you planned for. But if you ask yourself, your heart says Yes!! Yes…You are happy because you are trying to make it work.
Because you know that you are giving your best and you know that you can make it happen. Because you know that you are enjoying the journey and each and every milestone of the road to nurture your child to become what he can be best at. And one day you will see the results of all your efforts and then again you will have tears of happiness in your eyes. When your baby will hug you for the first time. When the baby will call your name, take first steps towards you and start showing their love towards you and many more. All the love you gave to your family will come back to you in multiples of millions. You are the only person who can love your kids unconditionally. You have all the reasons to be happy.
So go all out and become a child again with your baby. Capture the moments of their childhood. Make imaginary stories with your child. Try new games. Take a nap with them. Coz these days will pass so soon and soon you will feel no need of anyone asking: So are you feeling happy?
