Teachings to my daughter

I cannot be thankful enough for the blessing in the form of my girl that GOD has bestowed upon me. I can’t believe HE has been so kind to me. I always wanted a girl deep down in my heart and HE knew and fulfilled my secret wish😇.

There are few things that I, as a young girl learnt and understood much later in life, but I would teach my girl to help her create a strong foundation since the beginning itself.

So, this post is dedicated to my little love ❤️.

Dear Shivantika,

Here are your foundation life lessons.

🦩Beauty is not defined by your skin colour, your weight or height. Ofcourse, fitness is important, but, for your good health and your own sanity. It doesn’t define your beauty.

🦩Your beauty lies in your confidence, your kindness, your knowledge, your forgiveness, your respectfulness, your eagerness to learn, your playfulness, your fighting spirit, your ambitions. It lies in your hearty and carefree laughs, in your smiles, in your cries.

🦩Value yourself and never self pity.

🦩Be confident always, no matter the situation, the place, the people, the mood.

🦩 Show some kindness in this cruel world.

🦩Be respectful towards all, no matter young or elder. Walkaway from people who don’t reciprocate.

🦩Have your opinions and never hesitate to share them politely and humbly.

🦩Never seek validation for your looks, your thoughts, your opinions, your acts from others. Be self assured. Be truthful to yourself and others.

🦩Never break anybody’s trust on you.

🦩Follow your heart not people.

🦩Go out, make friends, enjoy life and always remember, your mum has your back.

Always loving you,

Your mum❤️

Shivantika is just 4 month’s old as of now. I hope I would be able to inculcate these lessons in her upbringing.

Let me know if you all want to see her. I would love to share her pictures here😊🥰.

Full of gratitude,

Divya Srivastava

Do you like CHANGE?

How many of you like CHANGE or you even look forward to that? Any kind of change, at workplace, in your relationships, at home, in daily routine or any thing that you may think of. Well, not many, I am sure. Am I right? I think, that’s quite normal because we get accustomed to our daily routines, we get comfortable with our old friends, family members and relatives and we become a pro in performing the old jobs at work every day. We get so used to, to the existing pattern of life, that we dislike any change for which we might have to make different kind of efforts and for some changes, we might have to come out of our comfort zone as well. When I say existing pattern of life, it means, we are doing nothing new, we are following the same course each and every day and most importantly, we are in our comfort zones. Well, I don’t know about others, but any kind of change, definitely gives me a kick. I am NOT saying that I LIKE changes, but somehow I always look forward to change. It can be any kind of change. The weird part is this, even if I know that the upcoming change would be unfavourable to me or might be difficult to cope up with, still it kind of gives me an excitement. I don’t know if this is normal or people may find my personality a bit strange.

What I have analysed about my personality based on the above is :

  • I like challenges.
  • I get bored very soon with the same pattern of life each day.
  • I believe in myself that I have the capacity to deal with anything.
  • I believe that I am not completely utilizing my capacity to do whatever needs to be done or what ever I want to do.
  • I am a firm believer that life offers different phases and each phase of life must be enjoyed.

 

Do you find me strange or can you relate with me if you have similar personality traits like mine?

Do share your thoughts with me.

 

Looking Forward,

Divya Srivastava
