Keep your Beauty and Career No Matter What

Good morning 🙂

I Had a good night last night, it was my only son’s birthday and we had an amazing dinner with the family. I just woke up, grab a cup of coffee and something came into my mind. My kids are grown up! Imagine my son, the youngest of my four children is now 14 years old. And suddenly flashed back into my mind all these years I’m raising my four children alone. I’ve asked myself, what if I did not continue my study when I’ve got pregnant with my eldest? What if I don’t have a career? What if I just stayed with my ex just because I cannot provide for my kids? These questions that made me understand the importance of career to a woman.

Ladies, never give up no matter what. Our parents sacrificed for us to finish our studies, dreamed about us to have a good career, a good life. Some women, when they got married they set aside their career, their personal development, their beauty and focus on their family. I’m not saying it is wrong, of course as a wife, a mother it is our “responsibility” however, I would like to emphasize that we have a responsibility to ourselves as well. Do not forget “YOU”, preserve something for you, and believe me you will need it for sure, it is called “Self-Preservation” please read my article about self-preservation here: https://pinaypowerblog.com/2018/06/15/self-preservation-2/

So, whatever happens, do not give up your beauty, do not give up your career. You never know what is waiting for you next, what is your future with your partner. Be strong, be mindful, and love yourself.

Have a great day ahead ladies 🙂

 

I Followed You

Pinay Power

I followed you

I chased you

But not in the street

Neither behind you

I followed you online

I checked on you every minute, every day

WhatsApp on you?

Your update is the start of my day

I followed you

I keep on checking what’s on your mind

What are you doing?

Where are you?

Are you lonely, hungry, happy or away?

I want to know

I followed you

Any thoughts of you make my day complete

When nothing new

I’m incomplete

Tempted to message you to tell I am waiting for your post

I followed you

Because I like you

Your photos bring curiosity in me

Your views influenced me a lot

You are great

You are fascinating

I followed you

To thank you

For influencing my life

More positive

More happiness

More understanding

I followed you

And will follow you forever….

……………………I hope you don’t mind

……………………………………….I followed…

When everything arranged love will follow soon

All are busy looking for you

Where to start is everybody’s question

How do you look like is not important

Neither if I will like you or not

What important are you are ready to start a family

All I can do is to close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

I’m just a good daughter, follow what must be

Here you come my way

Without any clue

Who you are, where you came from

Are you good, are you gentle

Will you love me too? Will I learn to love you?

Everything is arranged to eventually love each other

I just close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

I’m powerless, all I can do is to accept and pray

Wishing myself a better life with you

I’m scared, I’m nervous

What is waiting for me when I’m with you?

Now that you’re beside me

I’m shivering not because I love you

Because we are arranged to love each other

Life must go on

Let’s live with it, work with it

Until we manage to love each other

I just close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

Feast of happiness

All faces around me are smiling

All are happy for me

All are congratulating me

I’m smiling, am I really smiling?

I’m scared, the night has come

What shall I do? What shall I feel?

I just close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

By then

I can’t believe that

When everything arranged love will follow soon

I’m in love

I’m happy

I just close my eyes and pray to God

Thank you

For arranging my love

 

Thank you to my Indian colleagues for sharing their amazing arranged marriage love stories. Very inspiring and unique.

 

 

Where have you been all my life?

Me?!!!

I was in the mental hospital! Hahahaha

Kidding aside, this is a question when we feel like asking when we’ve met someone who we think is perfectly right for us but not at the right time. We connect instantly, found him/her amazing, can’t stop smiling, enjoying every moment, there is a spark! They make us feel alive and suddenly everything around us are beautiful and all the love songs start to make sense.

Is there really a timing for the right person? How timing is everything when it comes to a relationship? And definitely we are wishing that if we found that right person, the timing won’t matter because we want to be happy – so in spite of all consequences, we will find a way to make it happen.

But it doesn’t always work the way we want it to be. Many things are…

Self-preservation

Pinay Power

Our happiness is important as anyone else’s, I think we need to ensure that we set some limits on other’s demand.

Our whole life doesn’t have to take care or pleasing other people’s expectation or demand. Let’s not feel guilty or irresponsible if we refuse to do something for them or if we say no to them.

We have the right to disagree and we have the right to say no.

Preserve something for ourselves. Taking care of our self is entirely important nowadays, I am not saying be selfish and do not care for the others. Let’s just put our self-first in our own lives. Means we take care of our self so we can be there for everyone else. To be good to others we need to take care of our own needs first, which many of us forget it or let’s say not a priority.

The best…

It’s not easy

Pinay Power

It is not easy to be alone, neither be a single

It is not easy to be with someone, neither to be married

It is not easy to say no and even sometimes to say yes

It is not easy to lead our lives to where we want it to be

It is not easy to maintain the intensity of love though it is easy to fall in love

Life is not easy, in any aspects …but we can do something about it.

Approaching things in a positive way is a good habit, it will make our lives easier and manageable. Our daily lives are full of challenges, better to have few hours of break from the daily dose of toxins that we encounter every day. If we are lucky to have someone with us to spend few hours of the day to unwind, to talk, to chat, to laugh…
