Love Yourself

It was another busy day for Raashi. She took off her gloves and changed out of her scrub clothes in the operating room. Glancing at the clock, she was glad she had finished early today and could finally spend some time relaxing at home. But fate had different plans for her. Just as she was about to leave, her phone rang. It was her maid. "Madam, I cannot come to work today as my child is very ill. I am very sorry but there's nothing I can do about it. I have to stay home with him."

As she tried in vain to keep calm, she could feel the storm brewing inside her...."Not today!!! I really needed some rest" she murmured to nobody in particular. She drove home feeling down. To make things worse, as she opened the door to her house, she was welcomed to a cluttered house. Toys were spread across the living room, the kitchen was in a mess, the sink was full of messy dishes, the laundry lay in a pile besides the washing machine. All this started to trigger panic in her mind....how was I going to set all this straight and then get dinner ready in time????

She sat down with a glass of water and said to herself, "This is just another day, you are not going to let it break you. YOU LOVE YOURSELF. So don't let anything spoil your mood. Just think how you would have helped someone you love in such a situation??" She suddenly felt a sense of calm. That was it!!!She took a deep breath and got down to work while listening to some of her favourite songs on the iPod. To save herself the frustration, she decided to order in some food from a restaurant and the dinner table was set by the time her husband returned from work & her kids from their play dates.
The family had a pleasant dinner together over discussions about each other's day.

AND JUST LIKE THAT, HER LOVE FOR HERSELF SAVED THE DAY!!!!

YOU CAN'T ALWAYS DEPEND ON SOMEONE ELSE TO LOVE YOU...SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED TO "LOVE YOURSELF"

  10. Well told! As someone who cleans other people's homes and offices for a living, i know it feels awful to come home to a mess. After a difficult day at work, the last thing you want to do is clean. Thinking about it as if you are helping a friend is a great idea to get motivated!
