Freeing My Mind
I am travelling for work and this time I am out for 10 days!
While a little voice inside me is all excited for doing something I love, the next moment this gets submerged under the concern stricken voice for my boys! Thoughts of ‘how will they manage without me’ rule my head.
Oh, they are self sufficient, it is just that their carefree attitude which troubles me.
A call home last night revealed that the father-son are bonding big time!
While this makes me happy but … Why this BUT?
Well, it depends on the thoughts that I feed.

Sometimes our heart gets pulled in two opposite directions and we so want to be in two places at the same time! Good luck with all the travel, enjoy your time alone and come back home relaxed and fresh 🙂

A mom always worried about her kids — when they are not doing well and when they are :-)!

Things may not be the way they would be when u are around but they would be just fine . Be at peace Shilpa

Eventually, we’ll all have to come to terms with this.

Hehe! Shilpa! I can see a very concerned mother and worry not, they’ll come out fine as your thoughts are always with them:)

They are bonding alright, but am sure they are missing you. happens in most homes. you will know when you get back home, have fun till then:)

I’m with you on that ‘but’…. The worries never cease. I’m sure,though they’ll be fine. Aaryan is one independent boy, isn’t he? BTW when are you getting back? We’re all missing you.

Certainly depends on the thoughts you feed! But relax and enjoy your work cum break 🙂 I’m sure the father-son duo will do fine!

Father son bonding sounds fun! Depends on how they are doing it! All the best!

I can relate to those feelings!! My husband has often talked of taking one of the kids with him on the road when they get older…and I just can’t bear seeing them go!! So far it hasn’t happened and most of the time insurance restrictions keep him from taking any passengers…so for now I don’t have to worry! ♥

Ah! The beauty of a mother’s heart.

Write some more and free your mind 🙂

Awesome take. Mothers always amuse me! You guys are real sweethearts! I hope I could be a good mother too in future! 😛

A woman’s mind is always thinking about her loved ones, and when she is a mother there are many more complex variables that get added to the equation. “Ifs” and “buts” are always part of human thoughts Shilpa.

A mother always worries about her family, no matter what.But rest assured your absence will be felt even if they don’t let you know 🙂
February 13, 2014 11:12 pm|
Ha! The control freak mom disappears and off we go having fun 😀
February 14, 2014 8:43 am|
Aah…. I understand this feeling all too well. 😀

It is funny how we worry on autopilot, even though we know we don’t have to! 🙂
February 14, 2014 1:00 pm|
Dont we always 😉
February 14, 2014 8:53 pm|
Normal..perfectly 🙂 but you know they are doing great and yet there is this lingering thought 🙂

Moms are always worried about their children, even if they leave them for a single day 🙂

I loved the last line…i.e. your mind will behave the way you feed it…..so just let it go & chodo tension 🙂

UFff these men.
You know what exactly they wanted to say ” HOW WILL MANAGE WITHOUT YOU”

I think it’s our nature to worry – whenever my son asks me why I worry so much about him, I tell him it’s my job to worry and if I don’t then I’m not doing my job. Enjoy your travels.

Yes its a two way situation !! You want them to bond yet you miss being with them…I can relate to that !! Hugs 🙂
