Hey guys , special announcement – Today is my mum’s birthday. Thus, in this article, I’m going to be revealing the three most important important lessons I learned from her. My mum is my biggest influence and also , my number one fan.
I remember being a stubborn kid and she would be the only person in the entire building that knows exactly how to pacify the Lion – Me. Hey, that doesn’t mean she pampers me. As far as I can remember, my mum spanked me (Because I was incredibly stubborn), more than any other creature on the planet.
We would stare at the moon together at night while she answers my curious questions about nature and God. She would often complain about my dirty socks yet she washed them. I remember her teaching me how to read the wall clock (Check the time). She taught me better than my teachers when it came to morals. Although, she wasn’t a psychologist , but , I learned 75% of body language signals from her . I understood her body signals more than any person in the room ( Especially when a visitor is around). She knows exactly how to caution that little restless kid with her eyes alone. She taught me how to pray , without saying a word – I believe that was the easiest thing for her to do. She taught me how to pick beans and would laugh at me when I didn’t get it right. She knows exactly when to scold me and when not to.
You won’t find my mum on Google, Forbes list , or on TV , but She occupies a HUGE space in my heart. She would be the one to attend the P.T.A (Parent Teachers Association) meeting at school every single time the meeting was held . She would calmly listen to the entire school officials complain about my notorious and unserious attitude.
When I got home , She would sometimes deny me food , flog me , or remain speechless till Dad returned from work. She would avoid talking to me for an entire day (Which often made me feel sober), but , somehow , we knew how to settle our “unspoken” fight. Mothers are an epitome of Unconditional Love.
Enough of my touchy stories, here are the three most important lessons I learned from this Gem :
1. DON’T GIVE UP THE FIGHT : Looking back now , I realized my Mom was a FIGHTER. I observe a lot and of recent , I realized my Mom is a mentally tough creature . Despite the Hard times , she somehow found a way to move above it and create a better life for herself.
2. BE ETHICAL : Just by observation and more than enough time spent with my Mom, I realized that being ethical was a priority to her. She has a good reputation with all her friends and even her haters in regards to that. She says this to I and my brother a lot – Do the right thing!
3. EXCELLENCE IS IMPORTANT : Just few months ago , I realized my Mum believed in me more than I believe in myself. She sets the standard so high for me that I’m actually driven to Push myself to do more. She supports me a lot but each time I strike a conversation with her in regards to my next move , she raises the bar (Sometimes which I find scary and interesting). You would know through my Mum’s dress sense and “cleanliness” habit how much she values excellence.
I’ve learned a bunch of things from my Mom but these three things……. DRIVES me to become a better person every single day.
– Go Make It Happen.
