While juggling multiple roles, don’t forget you are important too. Make yourself a priority because no one else will with #KhayaalRakhna
Long back I promised myself, a much younger version of me
That I would respect myself, that I would always to it see
That I did the things that I wanted to do; what was expected.
But would also do the things I loved even if they were unexpected.
‘Life is an opportunity that knocks only once, make the most of it.’
This is the creed that I have lived by, what in my heart does sit.
I preach this to my children for its helped me live a fulfilling life.
I have achieved, have accomplished; even when I faced strife.
All my life I have looked ahead, planned and driven myself,
For my heart is an eternal optimist that knows no dry spell.
I am no more the naive girl that embarked on her journey.
Today I am forty plus, a mature woman, living my life happily.
