As I was browsing my FB account, I came across #MoreTo Me posted by Momspresso. I was very excited to write something down and as it had a last date to it, that in itself was a pushing factor for me. This I say because I am one of those true Librans who can get really lazy at times and I work best when I have a deadline hanging on my head. Since the day I read the post, I had been sitting almost daily with a pencil and paper pondering over what I could possibly write.
But each time I ended in giving up because I literally thought what was so special to write about myself. I am just like millions of women out there who perform multifaceted roles on a daily basis. So there was no zing factor that I could think of. Finally, today being the last date and as I said earlier about deadlines I finally figured out what was # More To Me. There is no single instance or event which deserves the only mention, in fact as I look back at my life and the road that led me to where I am today, I have realized that every step; every turning point in my life has been a # More To Me moment.
Going down the memory lane, the first instance that comes to my mind is when I had given up on myself when I failed in securing a seat in the PMT’s and took up a microbiology course. After a not so interesting first year in the undergraduate course, I buckled up and passed the second and third year with a distinction and a university medal. That was a # More To Me point when I realized that I had to let go of the past, pick up the pieces and take life in its stride as it comes.After pursuing the post graduate degree, it was my hearts desire to venture out in the research field but due to family limitations and other reasons I was not able to do so.
Once again with a half heart, I had to choose a not so desirable( that is what I thought at that time) job offer; only to be surprised later that it would be the most satisfying experience of my life. Within a few days I fell in love with teaching and my students were a constant source of inspiration who always pushed me to learn more and more. That was a # More To Me point when I realized that I could be so good at a profession which I never thought I was even fit for.After I got married I never dreamt that I could pursue higher education ( I was a studyholic), but with constant motivation from my better half and a few obstacles here and there I was able to complete another masters degree. That again was a # More To Me point when I realized that there is no age bar for education.
It is your inner self that needs to be spirited enough and you can achieve almost anything that you desire.Before having children, there were times when I doubted myself as to whether I was even capable to be a parent but as I see my angels today and how they look upto me for everything, I have realized that its all in the mind. We all have an unlimited untapped potential, we just need to make ourselves aware of what is # More To Me.And finally as I write this blog, this itself ( writing ), has been a # More To Me point in my life. Never had I imagined that I would find such a brilliant and gratifying way of expressing my thoughts i.
e. blogging. Life gives us numerous opportunities when we have to just shuffle our insides and identify our #More To Me magics. Whenever there is a dark cloud, remember just as all of them have a silver lining, all of us too have something or the other # More To Me linings.
