Cherishing Womanhood!

Celebrating womanhood

Celebrating Womanhood!

Did you like the Part I in the series of Celebrating Womanhood by hopping onto things we love the most? Could relate it for inner happiness? I guess, most of us, would have! Incase you missed it, read it right here .

So continuing on my part II, which I’m pretty confident many of us follow and cherish.

Here goes the rest 5 things, I believe a woman has to have in her life:

1. Read out a book :

Reading is something I enshrine upon. Don’t we all get fancied upon by those beautiful Love stories? Be it ending in a positive note or heartbreaking, many of us shed our valuable tears and get our emotions into those novels. We love thrills as well and that makes us exciting and refreshed. Many novels make us so closely associated with our or known’s lives and leave a strong impact. Though that is a fantasy world, real life stories are more motivational and inspiring. Reading Holy books may do wonders during those emotional outbursts!

So basis your emotional moments, pick up the book and indulge in the savors of it. A lovely read will for sure leave our inner self appeased and happy.

2. Shop for yourself :

We all love Shopping, there’s no second thought to it. But, I’ve observed that after having baby, my 90% shopping focus has shifted. I’m lot more interested in his dresses, footwear, toys, books and what not. I’m always looking out things for him. But alas, What about me? I need to tickle my brain to get that done. But once I’ve hopped onto my shopping with my best buddies, that day goes wonderful. One, being with bestie’s and secondly, I get what I needed for last 2 months, lol.

What I need to say is that we need to get ourselves pampered atleast once or twice a month for sure! What do you think, beauties?

We could have a relaxing spa, get our hair done, let them down with that lustre, get our teeth whitened, go for some facials as well.
Yes, they may be all for aesthetic purposes but thinking about ourselves, remembering our importance, not only makes us look better but in turn that also makes us feel better! Self love goes a long way, so don’t feel guilty!

3. Travel :

Ahh, that’s where my heart sinks! If given me a chance, I can explore the world 365 days. But then frankly, I don’t have that budget, lol.

Jobs fill pockets and Travel fills souls, Isn’t this quote true? 

We need to have outings to get a change from the monotonous routines of life. There has to be some moments wherein we can just learn, explore, delve ourselves in the lap of nature. There has to be moments of witnessing the beautiful sunrise and rough sea. We need to hear the birds chirping to get us out of the bed. There ought to be sunny days full of pool and sunbath with books. Isn’t it? Yes, that’s for our souls, to help it heal and rejuvenate.

Though it isn’t possible every time to plan a week off, one weekend a month can be planned, just for a small outing with family, and fun. Spare some time from your busy schedules, you’ll love it!

4. Family Dinner’s  :

Let me tell you, I love it! Though I’m yet to find those peaceful dinners now (my kid doesn’t allows me to have those, lol), but still I love it. For the sake of interesting ambience, food and drinks, some quality time to interact with each other, I cherish these dinners. And the best part, I get free from my Kitchen atleast once a week:).

5. Speaking our hearts out :

We have so many emotions, some positive, some negative and some even detrimental flowing. For negative, the reason is simple, People, circumstances which do not favour our thoughts ignite our heart, mind and soul.

The best way to liberate these emotions is to engage in our passion or speak to a close friend or mum. Sharing out those thoughts in the form of a write up or Paint/sketch or playing music or similar will so much help in relieving that stress. That will leave a room for the happy and positive hormones to float all over and in turn lead to a happy “You”. Speaking to mum or dad or even friend helps us to get out of those emotions sometimes.

Keeping all of it in heart and bursting out someday can never do any good to us. Specially all the so more, since we have kids, family, work and so many happenings in our daily lives. For all this, we ought to be positive and happy  and speaking our hearts out will help us do that.

Hope you enjoyed catching up with this series. Share me what you loved the most (from Part I & II)and how you keep your spirits high?

Till Then,

Enjoy Life!

    I do like reading. I try and make time everyday to read. Sometimes I encourage my kids to read or find something quiet to do so that I can read more. I do love to go shopping but don’t do it enough for myself.

  2. Amber

    Reading is one of my favorite things to do! I try to always find time for it on a daily basis. I also like to travel when I have the time (and money!)

  3. Andi

    Your article reminded me of the things my wife does. She likes to do all the above, And we met when she was traveling around the world 11 countries for 11months. (Check worldrace organisation)

  4. Life with Larissa

    Love this list! I actually hate shopping though, but I do enjoy a nice, new outfit. So there’s some issue with that one…haha. I do LOVE to read and travel though. They are most definitely some of my top hobbies to partake in. Family dinners are always nice. It’s great to get everyone together from hectic schedules and take a breather together. And speaking our hearts out is good for the soul, and it provides stimulating conversation, which I think we need more of in today’s society! Loved your post!

  5. Belle

    I love all of these! Sometimes I do feel guilty about buying stuff for myself but then I’d think most of my money goes to daycare and whatever the kids need; so I would try to talk myself to getting something I really want.

    Yes to all of these. I try to read and write when I get a brief moment of silence. Love family dinners. Where I struggle is shopping for myself and travel. I love both but don’t do enough of either. I am good with travel with family but I really feel that we should learn to travel by ourselves as well. I know that I experience things differently when I am a lone versus with others. I have started a list of places that I have been that I would like to travel again to alone.

    These are all the things that every woman should experience at least once in her lifetime. Making the right choices on what to read, where to travel and to whom to speak your heart are what will make difference.

    This is a wonderful little list! I recently started reading again, while finding time is always an excuse and always true, when I find the time to sit down and read it is so peaceful. I love getting lost in a good book!

  9. Ana De-Jesus

    I agree I used to be the same about travel but then I realized that it was all about changing my mindset, I have two holidays and possibly two more this year. While I don’t have any money, I sacrifice so I can have a reward at the end of the path x

    I love reading your post, and totally agree with you. Personally I love reading books and blogs… shopping (of course hehe, sort of walking too) – time for family, friends and myself.

  11. Kanani B.

    My favorites are reading, shopping for self, travel and last but not least family dinner. I love family dinners especially when I visit my mom. There is always a WOW moment that would be talked about for years.

  12. Catvills

    I love reading. This is one of my guilty pleasures. Sometimes I hide in the toilet just so I could read a few chapters of a book. I guess we’ve all gone through this one time or another. One thing I would like to work on is expressing my feelings. I am scared that I might hurt someone’s feelings so I just keep my thoughts to myself.
