Sorry for the delay, friends. Shall certainly respond tomorrow.
I would like to nominate this post of iyerviji.
She describes "My Life" in brief, understates her grit to survive, and acknowledges (yoohoo @Rihana) the kind people who had helped her, given her a leg up, saw her potential at her employment even though she be not prequalified with credentials, and offers an indirect advisory for all girls to go out to work. Because it is a guaranteed way to happy interactions with other humans. Because it is where your usefulness would get recognized in tangible ways--in real money, increased responsibilities and promotions. Married women (in that scheme to be happy ever after) should not need a plan B. However, a career is a sure way to have one. Happy to see that post.
A fine post !
I totally agree with you Amulet and Viswa. This is an amazing list of to-dos for most women. It's just that somehow I have never alluded to this as 'self-love'. I just refer to this as 'being myself' and 'doing my own thing'. Sandy has so rightly stated that the world treats you the way you treat yourself. Point to be noted.
Thanks a lot for nominating this post.
Amulet dear it's a real surprise to see your nomination. Surprises always makes me happy. Thanks a lot.
My dear Anna and Satchi
My next nomination is @girvani's
Thanks for the nomination Amulet. Vijima is a true inspiration to many on this forum.
Just noticed I had missed this nomination. Sorry about that. It is an amazingly heart-warming response from Gauri. The things kids say at the most unexpected moments can be so totally disarming (when it is not embarassing as it does happen sometimes! ). The purity and innocence of their responses can just sweep one off one's feet. And hats off to those parents and adults around who take note, realize the depth of those little pieces of wisdom out of the mouths of babes and infants and try to adapt it in one's own journey of life!
My dearest Viji Amma
You are ever so kind. This is one of my older post. I am humbled that you even think of this worth to be nominated. I am grateful.
My pleasure dear
