A Promise to Myself

Posted: July 23, 2019

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.
