And I don’t need anybody with me. I’m happy to be with myself, just watching the world pass by.
The noise outside, spotlights the peace within.
What works for you? What would you like to treat yourself with? What is your ‘me’ time?
Spend quality time with your child
It’s not about the amount of time you spend with your child.
It’s about the quality.
When you’re with him or her, be fully present.
Encode the good times though photographs or short videos.
Spending quality time with your child will replenish you.
It will center you.
Spending quality time with Mohit is is an integral part of my life.
I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

Limits are in your mind
Get rid of the limits you have unknowingly placed on your child.
And on yourself.
It’s time to break out of your shell. You have already seen signs of your child’s brilliance.
You have noted the speed with which he plays ipad games, the way he learns by one demonstration, how he recognizes routes.
Or how neatly she puts toys and clothes away, the amazing artistic talent.
Your child may not talk. That has nothing to do with the way his or her mind works.
At this point, you may feel stressed and constricted.
Practice the above points, diligently, daily.
Start with 10 minutes and move up to 30.
Your child came to you to expand your life.
Trust me, when you get away from the fear and anxiety, you will perceive this truth.
Remember: A scar only tells how beautiful and unbreakable YOU truly are.
Become aware of your own strength and beauty.
