Proud of me? Let me recall…..


 I admired my plants, took a sip of herbal tea…. cool breeze was playing with my locks, my younger one was busy in getting a perfect somersault. I didn’t hesitate to capture a moment in my camera. In the meanwhile daily prompt appeared and I sighed….It said

When was the last time someone told you they were proud of you?

 So far it has been my good fortune to feel proud of…..

  • My students- for giving me good result and emerged as an educated, well groomed, disciplined lot at the end of the session.
  • My kids- for giving me so many moments of taking pride in them.
  • My parents- for bringing me up as a good human being.
  • My husband- for loving me unconditionally and genuinely.
  • My friends and family- for giving me a sense of security and wanted.

There might be few occasions when someone related to me probably felt proud of me. Neither he made it  so obvious nor I expected it while performing my roles as a mother, daughter, wife or a sister. I did my things honestly, received the same in return as a reward.

Yes, I remember when we had some guests for lunch and how they went gaga over our garden. My husband was happy to receive compliments for the variety of flowers we had. I could see something in his glowing eyes as if he wanted to tell me,” Hey, I am proud of you !”  Ah, What weird ideas I am having. He must had been trying to convey, ” Look, they all liked our garden. Didn’t I convince you to take a ground floor house so that we can grow something.” Huh !

Anyway if I have touched the topic then let me share yesterday’s post where I explained the complicated method of water garden for dummies. It seems my few fellow bloggers missed it reading last evening ( India receives prompt in the evening) Who knows anyone of you feel so happy after reading it and leave a comment for me……”I am proud of you !”

Planting a water garden for dummies

  1. I read about your water gardening, but we would not be allowed to submerge our ground floor appartment garden under water. I am sure there would be a few objections from some of the neighbours. I can be glad that my felines can roam around without having a set path to follow. and of course you can be proud of your garden etc. etc.

    1. Swiss laws are strict or may be I feel so. You often talk about the concern of your neighbors. In India scene is bit different. We have more laws on paper, less on ground. Creating a space here and there is not much of a problem if you are living in an independent house. Permission is required if living in a society that too in metros. You are a king in small towns etc. etc. Thank you.

  2. This post describes love and ‘bliss’ with the special words you chose, S n S. I am so glad you have happy escape into a garden and a great family to share your time with. You deserve happiness! Smiles, Robin

  3. A wonderful list of “to feel proud of”! Thank you for sharing it with us, Rashmik. I love the water garden for dummies post you did. 🙂

Have you ever thought about Why slowing down is so important in life? Life is not only to run and chase the deadlines and create a million-dollar fortune. Slowing down is an art, indeed a therapy to become more mindful of your blessings of life. It means to be more present at the moment. To eliminate the stress of our lives and enjoy the simple joys that we otherwise tend to miss out on. It is a soul awakening to feel eternal happiness. This verse highlights the need of slowing down in life before it is too late.
