International Women’s Day (March 8) is the global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. A day to celebrate women empowerment.
Here is madhubani painting done by me and dedicated to all women. This painting depicts my desire of right for education for all women – women educated and well aware of their rights.
My dear bhailis, it’s been a wonderful journey with you all so far. I have grown a lot and learned so much from you all. I hope you all must have learned new things and met some amazing people around.
So, on the eve of Women’s Day, I want to say few things with you all.
- Take yourself seriously: I know we are always taught to think about others first. But the truth is we cannot keep others happy if we are unhappy. So, do things that make you happy. If you want others to take you seriously, first take yourself seriously.
- Time is money: Yes honey, time indeed is valuable money. More valuable than that diamond ring on your finger! So dispense your time very carefully. Stop wasting time on gossips, it’s not going to take you anywhere. In fact after meaningless negative talks you feel drained.
- Make better use of technology: We are blessed to be in this internet age. Learning anything is easy with vast range of information available on our fingertips. Use technology for your advantage and for learning new things. However, think twice before donating your time on social media watching photos of others. Rather read some news and be aware of current happenings.
- Take out time for yourself: We all know we should exercise, but how many of us actually do so. Consistency is important. Yoga class today, aerobics tomorrow and gym the other day with lots of bunking in between. Include some form of exercise in your routine and follow it regularly and sincerely.
Take out time for some art work (or anything creative) if you have inclination for it. Even some amount of creative art work will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated. Coloring pages for grown-ups in an excellent way to sooth your overworked mind.
- Eat healthy and fresh: It’s so easy to get tempted by convenient options and follow unhealthy eating habits. Our dadi’s and nani’s are active in their old age because they ate fresh home-cooked food. So include some multigrain and healthy food options in your diet.
- Don’t compete but empower others: The sad truth is, most females are competing with each other instead of supporting and helping. Stop castigating and judging others. You never know what someone’s struggle have been and their journey so far. Together we women can achieve so much.
So here’s wishing you all a very Happy Women’s Day!
