Memory Assortments for my Toddler #1

early, brushed your teeth, took bath. I was very happy. Being your first picnic even I was excited as well as a bit nervous. There were all weird scary thoughts coming in my mind, will you be all right? Will the teachers be able to look after all kids? I know every mother might be going through these thought and fears; There is a time when a mother must overcome all her fears and release her kid from her secure embrace and let them fly to explore; to grow. This was first time you would be going out without me around you. 

I’m not used to be at home on a Saturday and you not around. Believe me I had already started missing you the moment I dropped you in school.
You were back home after a while, to be precise four hours which felt like 4 decades to me. You were so excited to tell me about all the activities you did, how you enjoyed with your friends and your environmental observations. How you had sandwich with your friends. My nervousness had vanished since your trip was a success. You had learned to be without me in public, to listen to your teacher’s instruction, to help your friends.
After all the chatting and when you finished sharing your days experiences, it was the most difficult time, Lunch time!!
It is hard to make you eat food. I must come up with new ideas daily to achieve my target: to feed you! I took advantage of your excitement and chatting with you asking you various questions about your first picnic experience I started feeding you.
“So how did you all go to the garden?”
“We went by bus”, you Chuckled
“What did you eat with your friends?”
…..
….
You were happily eating, forgotten actually that you were eating too.. :) 
......
.......
..... 
I had exhausted my questions and that made you again go, “I’m full now. I don’t want to eat any more”
So I left you for a while, then after some time I called you and said, “Garima, can you please help me finish this rice?”
“umm.. no.. I’m full na..  ” u cribbed.
“Please dear, we will waste this rice otherwise. Please.. ”, I tried to persuade.
“umm.. ok.. but I will eat only one small part” you said warning me.
I was so happy… “ok, you may eat just a small part. Garima is so good she helps mamma finish the rice” I tried to encourage you for your decision.
My trick did work. You finished the rice, bringing a big smile of accomplishment on my face.
Soon you were tired and you slept, bringing silence to prevail again.
It’s a big task to feed you, no actually every task related to you is big. As you are learning, I’m too, to be a mother, to teach you difference between right and wrong, to treat you with patience, to handle your tantrums, to love you when you are at your naughtiest point, or when you are at your worst.
Living with you is like reliving my own childhood.   

Thank you sweet heart for giving me this chance to be your  Mom. 

With loads of love, 
Mom.

I hurried.....
I was getting late.. We were getting late... actually my office is flexible but her school is not...
So we were getting late for her school.. When I reached, prayer was already done, her Pt class was going on...
I dropped her and hurriedly came back, a sight caught my attention... a small boy was crying as if he is beaten to hell... all tears flowing, node running.... doesn't want to attend school.... crying mumma... mumma.... the sight was painful but it brought a smile on my face...

ahh... you may call me cruel.. but wait let me explain...

He was crying as he doesn't want to attend school....
school.... that's the best thing that has ever happened to me... that's the best time of everyone's life...
I know you agree with me now... :)

We made the best friends in school... we had the best time in school
That was the time everyone of us wants to relive...
I'm sure all of us did cry... there were times when we hated going to school.... exams...
but today we all love those times...

I feel life is like that.... we should enjoy what is in our hands... rather than waiting to get what we expect. cause we always come to know worth of what we have after we loose it.

its such a coincidence that I'm writing this on Teachers Day!!!.... Wishing all my teachers Happy Teachers day!!

Coming back to the crying boy... I wanted to take a video of his and show that to him 25 years from now... yes it would take 25 years for him to realize that school time is the best time...

Love my school days... missing them..

Magic of Meditation

Recently, I have been reading on Meditation, the reason being these days my mind is full of different thoughts, they are from different category,  and they all mix up and I think a lot
I know everybody experiences this at my age, there are so many things we need to take care of,
  • Utility bills like electricity, telephone, cylinder etc.
  • EMI payment on time
  • Office deadlines
  • Personal deadlines
  • Relation matters
  • Family matters
  • Friends matters
  • missleneous issues ( whats happening with govt, Indian cricket team, politics, current affairs etc. )
 
 
So many things... the mind is always working, even when we sleep its dreaming...
so I thought how can we help it to relax.
I'm a strong believer of this.. and I have experienced this too, Meditation is the way to relax your mind, to separate unwanted clutter from creative thoughts, self improving thoughts..
 
so I wanted to share few things I studied today, may be its not new to you,. but there might be few like me to whom it is new and useful.
 

What is alpha meditation?

The cells in the brain or neurons use electricity to communicate with each other. This can be measured and are called brainwaves and measured in Hertz units.
There are 5 main frequencies of brain waves that can be identified:
  •  Gamma
  •  Beta
  •  Alpha
  •  Theta
  •  Delta
 
Each frequency of brainwave can be connected to a specific state of consciousness. When we are examining meditation, Alpha and Theta brainwaves are the most prevalent and important.
Alpha waves are what we experience when we are daydreaming or in a very relaxed state.
They are seen as the bridge between the subconscious and conscious mind and can lead to deeper levels of health, happiness, creativity and success.
This is where we find inspiration supplied by our sub consciousness, where our creativity and sudden insights comes from. Meditation and Alpha brainwaves can be used to unlock solutions for issues that you will not find in your conscious state.


How to do Alpha Meditation... in next article. 
I'm learning this too... we will learn together.. :)
