The Terrible Thirties ??!!!!
Our children go through the terrible twos and I think we through the terrible thirties (LOL) !!!
A period of intense questioning...angst ridden...a period of quest...a period of re-invention and hopefully a period of rejuvenation (fervently hoping so !!). I often wonder why that is...perhaps a sudden realisation..that life is no longer out there..waiting to happen with choices galore..a sudden realisation that in fact its passing us by and soon will be left with no time to follow our dreams....
A gripping sense of urgency....is that true for you too ???
Often we are caught up in the hurly burly of life's responsibilities..taking care of children..husbands...extended families et all (certainly if u r indian..lol !). It doesn't matter if you are a career woman or a stay-at-home mum...rest assured we come last !!!!
I once in a heated argument with a friend (male..if that matters !) yelled , '' we women are just glorified maids during the day and whores at night !'' and he very calmly replied that, ''you women tend to trivialise YOURSELVES, and then nothing we say convinces you otherwise !''
That got me thinking....was that really true ?? Do we encourage ourselves to be martyrs and then rant and rave about it and put the collective responsibility on ''men'' and tar them all with the same colour ??
Perhaps..we are our own worst enemies...!!!
Time to say..we are verrrrrry important indeed...thirty or not..LOL !!
