We're a part of evolution revolving around the western ways, and the influence has increased in the past decade. Yes, to the extent that people today celebrate 'n' number of days which they know nothing about. Thanks to Google and the micro-blogging platforms, Internet, of course, we get to know what people are celebrating on the other side of the globe.
As it happens, Mother's Day happens to be another day which came crawling into our lives. Now, on the second Sunday of May, we wake up and walk up to our mothers saying "Happy Mother's Day". We all know within that it is nothing more than a greeting, don't we? I'm not saying you don't love your mother but today you'll read about one way you could actually remember this coming Mother's day for eternity.
Yes, write a letter or prepare a speech, the speech would suit more but unfortunately, you're more bad at it than writing. With all your day long messaging, clicking photos and uploading you don't happen to talk with her for the time you should. That is why this way when you sit down to write you'll actually go through so many emotions that you could write a book on her. The main objective of why I'm asking you this.
And, don't text her the way you normally do to everyone you know because then you will miss out on a lot of things. To which you will think that the words will be the same, how will it matter? Let me remind you, do you remember the last time you picked up a pen? When I sat down to write the same, I had the same mindset but the 7 minutes I took to write was the best experience I ever had.
Also, in today's world, one doesn't believe in something until the evidence is there for them to see. To that I say, read on and I bet you'll feel each and every emotion listed:
The very first, there's a difference between writing down on a paper and thinking. You'll realise that there's so much you want to tell her which in reality you never did.
Now, after knowing all that you want to write, comes the inability to put those words on paper. Because you never spoke them out loud to her; it will take time for you to frame it.
After getting hit by incompetency and running out of words, you'll find that the abundant memories are just innumerable and a piece of paper couldn't hold the weight of them.
Well, even in doing good deeds guilt can step in; it's a reality, you'll realise it. Because you'll have to think of all those times when your mother was there for you and you never thought of her.
As these loads of memories flow, you for the first time consciously accept the mistakes you committed and were told to you by your mother. Then you yelled at her, now you realise if she hadn't corrected you then you wouldn't be what you are today.
You know the mistakes now, so the regret crawls in when you now know of all the times when you weren't scolded or told about when you actually did some pretty unwanted stuff.
Yes, after regretting and accepting mistakes, respect for her grows four-fold. But, you already respect her the way she deserves? (You know better)
You didn't go to play soccer the Sunday morning or café with friends because your mother asked you to stay and help her with the household. Well, you stayed but were upset the entire day cribbing because she did not let you live your life the way you wanted to. Peculiarly you happen to acknowledge all the sacrifices she made for you, now, when you revisit those memoirs; which you never even cared to think before in life.
We're not satisfied with our mums, to be frank. At least I have loads of demands and wishes which never come true, considering you also in the same bunch, you suddenly are more than satisfied. While you're at it writing or thinking about it, you understand the importance of all the things you were given by her and now knowing the circumstances of that time; you couldn't be more satisfied than ever.
"My friend's mum is better than you", you have thought about this if not said directly. This letter you will write now and all the emotions which will flow through, in the end, will leave you with a proud feeling. Not only proud, but you will also come to the conclusion that you wouldn't have wanted any of your friend's mother as your own.
"You're wrong" or "You don't know how to do this", you have told the aforementioned to your mother as many times as you could until today. That or any other version of the same but now you realize that you're the one who was always wrong. There's a probable chance that you were right sometimes here and there, but even then you now accept that to point out her mistake was always wrong on your part. (The latter wouldn't have happened much though)
A lot happened in a really short time and now you're thinking of stepping back and not writing it. Carpe Diem! My friend, she's your own mother and nothing will happen, other than the immense pleasure you'll feel after writing it.
You could go and give the precious letter to your mother, which would be extraordinary. Considering you haven't done it before and when you were fearful before writing it only, I've got an alternate option for you. Post it with your mother's name on it, to your own postal address. And, don't write your father's name just because it's on the house's name plate. Write the right address and it will reach your place only.
I guess it's the end of this post but not for you. It's a new start for you and don't procrastinate! Do it before/on or a day after May 14, 2017, and have the best experience you ever had. Remember, simply use pen and paper, not all the gadgets you have or the Internet; otherwise, you'll defeat the entire purpose and miss out on a lot of emotions you just read.
Will you write?
