Read on how to enrich your life by purpose, i.e. to find depth and, a reason to get out of bed each morning, your own Ikigai.
It was a very hectic day yesterday.
We were watching the 10 pm news on TV, which is a part of our daily routine and I really don’t know why but a sigh escaped my lips. My husband who was watching me looked at me with a face full of guilt.
He said, “I know you are tired, you don’t get time for yourself. I have always told you, it’s not about career or money but you should do something for yourself. Find a passion.”
He continued, “Don’t worry, everything will fall in place, you must do the things you think you cannot do”.
I said, “Thank you so much, so here is the list of things, I think I cannot do”.
I wanted to continue, but I looked at his face and I laughed out loud. Poor man, he did not know what was coming.
I told him, that I am happy the way I am. I am passionate about being a mother. Motherhood is all about learning about all the strengths you never knew you had. It is all about conquering your fears. I love staying at home and looking after the kids.
I said, “My dear husband, I am already doing things I thought I could not do, I am bringing up two very fine, wonderful boys, who would contribute towards a better world.”
He held my hand and smiled.
