Be the change you want to see

 Last week was a very stressful week. I used to reach home by 8.30 pm everyday, then eat and sleep.Next day get up at 5.30 cook and rush to office. Everyday Kulli would create a ruckus and I would yell at her and things would get out of hand. I was turning into a woman nobody like to deal with. So decided to make changes.

Got up at 4am like I used to do before, told myself that I have to be happy today. Cooked till 5am, went  to gym, which I had stopped from 2 weeks, walked on the treadmill for 20 mins.used the  rowing machine for 5 mins, did 12 squats came back fully charged. All the time watched news, so saved the time of reading newspaper.I came back home fully charged and happy. Had a big cup of coffee, sitting in the balcony had bath prepared idly and chutney packed boxes, so I was calm , cool composed and done with all work by 6.30am.

I woke up kulli at 6.30, told her a story , fed her milk and gave her bath gave an idly and voila she was happy and so was I. Meanwhile kulla got up and kulli was already ready, so pampered kulla also for few minutes.No crying, no screaming, no shouting at S for not helping.touch wood

So I took a decision to be happy , coz I want my kids to be happy.And also I realized that last 2 weeks I was miserable coz, I had not hit the gym.
My advise to all moms, and what the hell ,all woman make your self happy and people around you will also be happy.Good mood,happiness is contagious. (touchwood)


  1. Can I relate to all this or what!! Well written and well done.
    But Musica...getting up at 4:00?? hope you are not burning the candle at both ends.

  2. Yeah! I second with PP... Was about to write the same... Being happy and all that is great... but waking up at 4 everyday??? May be the gym part helps compromise sleep time, but still, lack of sleep everyday is no good to health, dear...

  3. @Sum, PP
    Got used to the wake up time of 4am from a long time.I generally sleep by 9.30 pm. I am kind of an early riser.
    Thanks gal for reading my nonsense ramblings everyday.
