Ever since i delivered, life became a race, especially for a cool-no-nonsense person like me, everything i read, breathed, did or lived was around my baby, very conveniently ignoring my best-half and ofcourse the very drowning me.
I forgot what it felt like to stay happy and content in that very moment. I was always looking, searching and hoping for what's coming next and how can i make it best. When will i wean the baby?, what will i wean the baby with?, when will she start crawling, moving, dancing, walking, teething, talking and blah blah blah. Every milestone achievement came with alot of happiness but, the moment it was achieved, there came another me piling upon what next?. So, living all these days and months on the cliff, waiting and anticipating better falls from the previous, i rediscovered myself- i realized i need to stay-put and stay here, right here where everything is happening at its pace. Someone else's baby crawled,so what? mine smiled, they walked?, mine crawled! They spoke?, mine laughed...... i realized i need not worry when the next milestone or greater living will happen but to live and love the moments that are right now in my kitty. These moments, that in a blink will pass while i worry about the next to come fast.
So here, it's me, acheived until today. My soon to be 1 has already taught me to live 1 day once.
So, Well!!in all honesty, if you have become someone who is always looking for something better to do for yourself or your baby, let me be outright- you are already missing on the fun and happy today and just living your days by the bay.
So live once and live all!! All at once or nothing at all. Making it count and make it shine for there is nothing best that doesn't happen at one time!!
