Happy Teacher’s Day, my Lil one

Teacher’s Day has always been about the lovely teachers who teach us to believe in us, inspire us to fulfill our dreams, and encourage us to think beyond the box. Of course, they impart knowledge, instill discipline, and give grades, in the process. A very happy teacher’s day to all my gurus, teachers, mentors, and guides who carve young minds and shape the future.

Teacher’s Day now has a whole lot of meaning for me after I became a mother.  It is said, that a mother is the child’s first teacher. But I believe that my child is my biggest teacher.

5 life lessons that my child has taught me, like no one else

1. Never Giving Up

learn to never give up - teacher's day inspiration

  • You fall, fall and you fall again, but you stand up and rise every time you fall. Until you don’t fall again.
  • You try, try, and you try again, but you don’t give up until you get it right in the next try.
  • You ask, ask and you ask again, but you ask again until you get what you want. Until the situation budges to you.

You taught me my Lil one to never give up and to believe that you’ll get through. You showed to me the power of persistence and the courage to pursue what you want, wholeheartedly.

Thank you my little one for teaching me once again to never give up on my dreams ever.

2. You’ve taught me Patience and made me firm, like no one else

Knock at the door, unless it opens. Ask for that cookie, unless you get it. Cry and shout, unless you get my attention. You are cute in your own ways. But you’ve taught me patience, endurance, and love, like no-one else.

Your constant badgering, relentless spirit, and tenacious demands have taught me to be patient and firm, like never before. Thank you for doing the impossible.

3. Live in the Moment

You may cry that a friend just snatched your toys but at that very same moment, you get happy that Mumma gave you another toy. You may cry when we drop you to kindergarten, in the morning. But, you discover happiness the moment you meet your friends. And you may be sad, that we are not stepping out of the house, but you adapted better than us to the new normal, like a real hero.

It is not always important to understand everything or to reason out everything, but it is important to let go and live in the moment. Thank you little one, for teaching me to live in the moment.

4. Be Yourself. Stop Caring, what others think

‘Spilled food, soiled clothes, or a messy floor.’ –  You show me the freedom of being yourself and making mistakes, without any fear of being judged.

While the challenges may be different and the situations may change, for adults. But it is liberating to understand that it is a process to learn a new skill, pick up a new thing, or cultivate a new habit. Its just human to stumble upon obstacles, but its important to make those mistakes to grow in life.  So make mistakes and ask questions without caring about the opinion of others. Fall, before you can rise again. But, don’t be afraid to try and fail.

Thank you little one for liberating me from the weight of other people’s judgements.

5. Every day is a new day

It’s you, my child, who has shown me the potential that each day brings, with it. From your first crawl to the first time you stood up on your own and then to the first time you started walking, you’ve made me believe in the power of today. Right from the first time, I held you in my arms, you have shown me the power, potential, and possibilities that dawn with the sunrise, every morning.

Every Day is a new beginning.  There are surprises and serendipities, the ones we don’t see coming. So, leave behind your past failures, heartbreaks, worries, and goof-ups. Put on your brightest smile, get excited, and believe that you are meant for great things. Today is a new day that brings new possibilities.

Summing Up

A teacher once told me, that in life, we can’t just be prepared for everything in advance. We may have to take some things as they come, learn on the job, and deal with unpredictable and spontaneous situations, on the go. So trust oneself and take a step forward to be the one, who takes charge.

I believe these words have stuck with me, ever since, and have opened my mind to evolve with any given situation. And you, my lil one, have taught me more things than I ever had learnt before. You also make me remember the simple things and joys that I had forgotten, in the journey of life. Happy teacher’s day, my Lil one.
