Love, the essence of a perfect fairy tale life, comes in many forms, but as we know, from a select few. Doting parents would do anything for their daughters and the generosity exceeds the norms, when in their minds they are ready to let their little ones off on their own journeys towards a 'happily married life', per se. Here in lies the greatest contradiction, as in the minds of the daughters, this is the happiest time to be with the doting parents, and a little bit too soon to be sent off to distant lands in the company of perfect strangers.
Confusions galore, and sanity gives way to utter helplessness with the thought of being uprooted, from the wonderful, cosy environs of a beautiful home, which you called your own since time immemorial.
But today, it might all change, if certain things are made priorities in our lives before we set out in this world to sail. I will call them the FIVE FIXES
1. Discover Your Career
Only your career, is your best friend forever. It turns out to be your soul mate when you hit the right one. In the thick and thins of life your work will always keep your spirit up! It will help you progress with the sense of success at every tiny phase of your life. Being increasingly self-sufficient and self-confident are the benefits not to overlook. Don't misinterpret this with the piles of books you bone up at late nights over a cup of coffee, relate yourself with your curiosity. Something you effortlessly enjoy! Most of the times we find out the right career after conquering the wrong one. But, What matters is: Finding out!! Once you figure out your where your knack is, don't hesitate to follow it at any point of your precious time. Remember, it's better late than never. It's like a warm bath when you get involved where your heart lies.
2. Parents As Friends !!!
A bond between a daughter and parents take deeper roots when they part their ways. Only few manage to nourish the sprouts of their relationship before the time slips. Probably, We are not one of those. Our parents are so close to our heart that we forget to express ourselves in front of them. We start living in a bubble that they see the world through our eyes. We don't realise when those colliding thoughts gradually take that connection away. So if you are not a dotting daddy's daughter, then make your mommy your bestest friend. Let her know your innermost feelings and she won't forget to support your side ever in your life.
3. Married, Now or Never?
Marriage brings along all the luxuries of life, that your parents saved for your dear time. Just in a blink everything tends to change. It makes you responsible for many things in life that you never knew existed! There might be no ideal house in the world that can keep you happy, but there is always a solution. The only survival is your clear mind. Gently express your idea of a 'happy married life' to the person most concerned. Let everyone know how do you wish this whole thing to be, before you decide to leave your native for the beautiful journey. And if you really fail to decide, delay it for the right time.
4. Become Self-sufficient:
Nothing in the world makes you more proud than getting rewards for your abilities. When you start putting in efforts for your desired rewards, your childlike charm converts into a womanly stance. Now that you know you 'earn' you start walking more confidently in the crowd. It helps you live the life of purpose. At the same time it gives your name and pretty face an identity. It shapes up a base for your career in a way that it becomes easy for you to continue the same at anytime in future.
5. Live Alone on Your Own
Living alone at an early age solves all the mysteries of life for the future. It teaches you what it takes to run the house and do hundred other activities at the same time. When you start dealing with others apart from your family you start becoming bold and brave. Ways to live alone could be any: whether you are practising your degree professionally or it is just an internship. Step out of your comfort zone and get yourself beautifully moulded for the lifetime. I believe, I need not to point out the fun part of living far away from your family. Make sure you are amongst those pretty good girls!! :)
