You are about to turn 2! The countdown has started! And before we reach at the end of this countdown, I would like to share something special with you & my readers: Wishes I have for my child.
I really don’t want to mark your achievements and new things that you have learned.
I just want to let you know that mommy loves you so so much as now you very well understand what it means and how you respond to it too with “I love you too MAA” and a bear hug… Trust me that melts me thoroughly.
Today I want you to know some things that I wish for you, baby.
Certain things that may be every parent would relate to. I wanted to sit and talk about these things when you have grown enough. But somehow because of something that you did and said today, I am overwhelmed enough to write all this to you.
These are my personal wishes as baby Y’s mom.
1. You sure are the best thing that has ever happened to me till date.
Yes, You heard it right my son. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life. No one else is anywhere near to the priority in my life where you are right now.
2. Live your life in the present moment always.
Never ever crib about what happened or what could have happened in past or what you can do in your future. By this I never mean stop thinking about your future, but I mean don’t ever spoil your present thinking about that.
3. It’s never too late to start.
Don’t get disheartened for anything that you could not have achieved something you wanted to or over a wrong decision you made. Remember one thing. Just get going! It’s never too late to start anything with a new and positive mind frame.
4. Know all your strengths and weaknesses.
Don’t ever fear the situations, never ever run away from anything that you think isn’t meant for you. Instead, jump in it. Try to make it happen. Know all your strengths and weaknesses and deal with the situations keeping that in mind.
5. Learn to mould yourself according to situations.
This is really really very important to survive a happy and healthy mental and stable life.
Mould yourself for good. Mould yourself for every possible situation to keep yourself positive and get going. Never let time or situations force you to do anything.
6. Forgive mommy for all the mistakes I have made while raising you.
Yes, I have made hundreds of mistakes till now and will make many more in the time coming ahead. Because motherhood is something that has taken a toll on me. I am not the best mom but I am trying my best to give you my best for sure.
When you look over the past and come across the mistakes, I made I hope you think and understand that mom was just trying to show you her unconditional love and support.
7. I’ll always be your friend, but have enough respect to remember that I am still your parent.
Yes. I will always be your first friend. I won’t let anyone take that from me. You can feel free to be around me as junglee as you can, as moody as you can, as baby as you can. Pour your heart out to me.
Come and talk to me about your girlfriend in future I won’t mind anything. But I won’t take it when I see you not respecting your elders. Be it, anyone. Be my friend but respect me as a parent always.
I will always be open to talking with a non-judgemental heart to you.
8. Choose the career that gives you happiness and purpose.
I won’t ever force you to select what isn’t good for you. You are free to take your decisions as an individual.
Yeah, you heard it right.
I will always be a proud mom having your back for whatever career you select for yourself. Coz I know you chose your happiness.
9. Be responsible.
Always learn to take responsibility for what you do.
Do not run away from anything you did. All the actions you do have consequences, words have consequences too. Be wise and make wise decisions. But if things don’t go the way you planned, take the responsibility for your actions and deal with them. This can change your entire destiny, my love.
10. Be honest & Own your identity!
Be honest to your own self, else everything will fall in place.
Being different is good. But being yourself is unique.
Be yourself and be unique.
Never change your own self under any influence.
Be proud of what you are and love yourself and people would see you glow.
Don’t take any peer pressure. Be a good leader never be a boss.
Remember one thing. “YOU ARE WORTH IT!” Walk on your own path and if while doing so you can inspire others, feel blessed.
11. Be my old age support.
No no no!! Not forcing myself on you. Completely your choice though. I never want to hold you back from living your life coz of my old age. But you can make wise decisions for me then as I make now for you. That is needed.
I will need you mentally and emotionally then. Be with me.
I love you, my boy, I will never stop doing that for sure.
