Some days I get worried I don’t know if I should have a voice. Especially a voice to talk about harsh realities related to confidence and women’s issues. As a strong confident female I am very independent, a happy mother and have a great family life but I think females like me sometimes present a type of hypocrisy too. We want to talk about truth and honesty and yet we only share our happy side. Social media is not very helpful as well; since not just me, but everyone wants to just talk about positive things happening in their life.
It makes sense to me because who wants to share their private and sometimes not so pleasant affairs. But I recently realized the importance of sharing those not so happy moments too. Some of you have been very kind in sending messages & writing to me about how perfect my life they wish they could have a life like mine. So today I want to write that everyone has what I like to call a package deal. There are days that are filled with joy and then there are days that are filled with sadness. Life is a bundle of a little bit of everything. Even for me some days I feel completely liberated like I’m living my life on my own rules and following my heart and then there are days when I question it all. Am I confident? Because there are so many things I’m afraid off. Am I really happy? Because there are so many days when I’m fighting with my significant other. There are days when there are arguments over small things & there are days when there are arguments over big things. We are two completely different people with different & strong personalities. So, It is not an understatement to say that we bring out the best and worst in each other. Then there are the day to day worries like financial matters, Serena’s upbringing and chores. If you are working woman then you know that sometimes chores can become a hassle too.
For me at the end of the life is all about finding that inner happiness or positive thinking which comes from forgiveness and acceptance. So, I try to forgive myself and others for our flaws and accept people for who they are. I try to remember that there is no one kind of life with just happiness or sorrows. The reality is a package deal and I choose to highlight and remember the positives. So, in life there are good days and bad days and sometime extreme highs and lows but whatever it is try to remember that tomorrow is a new day and all times good or bad will pass. All we can do is focus on the positive and know that everyone around us has the same package deal. There bundle might look different from outside but it is not too different from the inside. So, while I will continue to highlight & share the positives in my life just know that I have the same package deal as all of you.
