Whatever we are today, it is just because someone has guided us in our life. There is always someone or the other behind us for our success as well as for our failures. Today, when I see myself as a self dependent woman, I know who is the reason behind it. I have heard people saying that I am her reflection. Yes! It is my Mom who has taught me how to be independent in life. And, I am really thankful to her for teaching me so many bigger things through her small gestures, which I will carry with me throughout my life.
I still remember that plastic jar, that had a small opening at the top of it, which my mom had given me when I was a kid. It was my first piggy bank. She would give me some coins every day, which I would happily add in the plastic bottle. That small start in life, when I was a kid have taught me how to make savings. Today, I don't have to ask for any financial help from anyone, because, that small habit which I have learnt as a kid, has always kept me with sufficient savings. Only because of that habit, I am also able to make a proper financial management at home.
Not only in terms of finance. My Mom never restricted me from exploring new things. In spite of me being an only daughter, I have never faced any hindrance from exploring new places. Because of which, now I can easily go to any new place and adjust there without any difficulty. She had given me full freedom to make my own decisions. Whether it was choosing my Engineering subjects or it was to make a career decision, she never forced her opinions on me.
Today, I manage both, work and house at the same time. I have not kept any maid for my help. The only fact of being dependent on a maid makes me sick and that's the reason I completely avoid them. I have seen my friends, who are so much dependent on a maid. If one day the maid doesn't come, then they become completely helpless. But, that's not the same with me. My mom who use to teach me little household work, has made me so much self reliant, that today I am proud to say that I am able to manage both work and house at the same time, effortlessly without taking any bodies help.
My Mother is a single mom. But, despite of all the difficulties that she had faced while bringing me up, she has taught me the right lessons at the right time and have helped me grow as a person. Whatever I am today I owe it to her.
