Ageing is fun I believe !!
I was never worried about getting older, I just had some blurred thoughts on how will be able to handle myself then.
Five years back I wrote about turning 30 and my accomplishments. It made me feel great. It was the time, I was confined to be a homemaker with a tiny bit of freelancing to help me cope with my Depression crawling into my mind.
Years again, I worked on myself and my writings, thanks to al my mentors who were with me on this journey. It was never even possible without the push from my dearest friends and well-wishers. I am still on my quest to learn much more and still I feel like I have an ocean to swim across. But yes !! I am quite determined.
On my birthday, I just missed my dad so much, as he was the one who wished me first. It is a long time, I know but because of his presence in my thoughts, i have pushed myself harder. All these past five years from being 30 to 35, I have learned a lot.
Last year when i was just 34, i remember the impeding thoughts i had which I did scribble down.
Gained new friends
This year I had the pleasure of knowing many more people, who have become a part of me, swiftly. I love their company and the chatter Time I get with them, which brings back the fondest memories of my young age.
I realised how friends could stand with you during the thick and thin. Thanks to all.
I promise, wherever we are- we all will be the best of friends.
Realized people still utilize others
No lesson is perfect, without a shortcoming or a setback. Yea !! I too had moments wherein I felt being utilized a just thrown away like trash. It did hurt me a couple of time, but the writing did help me resurrect from all these dampening thoughts. I am still yet to learn a lot.
But yes, later did I realise that it was my fault, that I let people utilize me- it is their smartness and my stupidity.
This is life !!!
Attaining my long lost goals
Goals keep us moving. Without certain goals, I just feel empty. I do not set much, but I give a shot for everything that comes in my own way. I never felt guilty of doing so either. Getting into a job,a regular one apart from freelancing was my dream. At first, I was almost lost and imbalanced. But now I am gaining my balance slowly and steadily.
I always want to be an independent woman, who is strong and venturing. And I am proud to be one.

Being a mother as well as an office-goer
It is the hardest thing in my life- to stay away from my kids. But as the last year commenced, I was offered a job. A part of me wanted to do the job, another part of me was shattered. Whilst I was amidst the chaotic thoughts, my mother reassured me, that I would never lose anything. And thanks to the company, I work with. Nowadays modern technology has simplified our daily lives.
I do miss a lot with them, but they never hated me or avoided me. I am still a part of their life.
Even though juggling a job and a home is not easy.
Struggles are never-ending. But I am proud to be what I am now.
May be not so successful ;
May be a lil vulnerable
May be lil adamant
May be a lil loving
Maybe a lil lost
Maybe a lil chaos
May be a lil strange
May be a lil sad
but I am a consolidated version of all!!
And as I conclude :
I have regained the confidence of being a mother, a woman of substance and strong enough to deal with anything that comes in my way.
So Finally Happy Bday to a New ME @ 35
