When a seed gives life...

Proud is not just an adjective, but it also uplifts the mood of a human when he is showing pride, appreciation, and satisfaction with things that he has achieved so far.

Today when I look back at my achievements, no doubt they make me smile since where I am today is thanks to the hard work that I put in yesterday.

But, then I am not going to gloat about it, and tag it as one of my proud moments since that will just make me slow down on the goal that I want to achieve in this lifetime.

Now, I am not hard on myself but just being practical to keep challenging myself and help me take that extra step forward each day.

More so since moments of pride are usually associated with materialistic accomplishments and thus they come with a price. Today they exist, but tomorrow they might decease.

However, for me my proudest moment is one that has been experienced by many but still it gives me the goosebumps till date. It was the moment when I had my newborn in my hand, was the proudest moment more so since as a child I had read about the biology of creation, and was awed by the thought that a seed can actually make life (omit vegetation) but then to actually go through the process of giving birth and having that ~5 pounder flesh and blood in your hand was a magnificent feeling.


I felt exulted, was overjoyed and till today I cannot stop boasting about it as I point at him and say it out loud, when asked, "That is my child!"

“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.” 
― James Baldwin

Becoming a parent is not mandatory for a human to undergo. But, it sure is one of the best moments for oneself to feel that love within grow, and evolve as we breed another bag of bones and nurture it and bring him/her up as a responsible citizen of the country. It is a test of your patience, grit, and will-power, but many have done it. Thus, today we have a population of over a trillion breathing on this planet!


Mantra for today: “What it's like to be a parent: It's one of the hardest things you'll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Wedding
