All the Stress in the World

The idea of a #StressFreeMom – is it even close to being possible? You have to wonder. Yes, even though she doesn’t show it on her face, stress is a big villain who is always trying to bring the superhero mom down. This qualifier and contender for the super-villain title never really backs away from creating more and trouble with the help of fate. So, the superhero mom needs a side-kick, like Robin is to Batman and Kato is to Green Hornet. Even Iron Man got War Machine, so the need is always there. See the worry list here.

Reason #1: She is worried that I am worried. She is stressed that I am not stress-free and there is so much stress which I go through. She feels that I am not happy and I am so sad that I will make God himself so unhappy and will bring His wrath right down upon the Earth. She has been worried that I don’t smile that much, and it is a worry. But she is slightly relieved that I wasn’t a smiling child when I was born. Still, she hopes to bring the smile back so that she can be confident that I am not really stressed or worried that she can be stress-free. She is praying and waiting for the moment when I get a job, even a small one.

Reason #2: There is also the worry about health. It has always been there, and this undisputed presence has worried not only her, but also me. Yes, she thinks that I am not having the right food, and also not at the right time. She keeps thinking about those proteins and vitamins which I might be missing, and how my current food habits are going to hurt me during a later stage of life. She feels that I could be more responsible to my own body, and tries to give me early food so that I can have the next one much earlier. But has rarely been a thing of interest for me, and that provides stress!

Reason #3: I do spend too much time reading from the laptop as well as those printed books. Here, the concern is more about my eye. She thinks that I should calm down a bit, think, read and write only after resting enough. It is kind of right though; may be I shouldn’t be the most sleepless one around. The need for rest is there, and I have avoided it too much to have the stress and pass it on to mother. There was even that poem about “rest” which we had to study during the colleg edays. Well, I am planning a long rest for later, and so it will be solved on another day.

Reason #4: I also stay late and wake up early, and she feels that I don’t sleep at all. She feels that I am skipping the sleep to overdo the studies and it is affecting my health. She is stressed about the same that she keeps asking. May be I should have more rest, but I don’t have enough time in a day – twenty four hours is not enough for me. I have things to do, and there is no time, and I own no time machine. Even if I sleep, it shall provide me no actual rest, and may be there will be no sleep at all. Well, life is full of worries, and when we them, mom also gets them.

Reason #5: The extra stress is there, provided by those people who are not me. Yes, there are those continuous stress providers who are wandering around at all places where they can find the range. Yes, the mother is not immune to them either, as the relative trouble keeps hovering around. But they have been the least of her concern, but still they make that terrible attempt to make an impact. It is the unwanted stress that we are forced to have, and it just keeps following us – not just her, but also most of us.

It has been a long time of worrying, from the school days to college days, and now beyond all that. She really needs to stop being stressed. She would need a Parachute Advansed Aromatherapy oil massage have some rest as she takes it as her side-kick, instead of worrying and doing too much work. Yes, these days she do worry less than I do, and sometimes I feel that it is me who needs the massage. But as it is my time to worry and her time to rest after the grand retirement, she should do exacty that and leave the rest to me šŸ™‚

Iā€™m blogging about why my mother needs to de-stress with a Parachute Advansed Aromatherapy Oil massage for the #StressFreeMom activity at BlogAdda.

Bringing Back that Touch

*Here begins another story. All the photos of kittens used are mine, and are intended just to show “the touch”.

It had been a long time since they talked. It was the big day that spoiled everything. Nothing had worked as they wanted, and the situation had brought the worst in them. They were pretty much confident that nothing was to be done to improve their relationship. Each and everyday, they used to call someone who could inflate their egoistic sides and take them to another level. They were blessed with some nice friends who loved to see them in trouble due to jealousy about their happy life.

Even as his parents had gone to New York to visit their grandparents, her father’s home was set just at the neighbouring flat, and so it was easy to run away from home – even as she was staying there now, she could come back at regular intervals and take what she wanted. She would just go into their home when her husband was not there, and would take her things to her father’s home. She thanked God for such an opportunity, and hoped that she would be more awesome alone.

It was the story of the couple who was part of the biggest love story at the college or rather the colleges, as they studied in the nearby colleges for graduation. They met during a quiz program, and even as both didn’t have a high opinion of each other at that time, they became really close, and they joined the same college for post graduation, even as he had to change his major to get admission at the same place and she had to stay in the hostel. That actually went smooth compared to what was to come next.

As one of them belonged to the Christian Knanaya community which practiced a strict tradition of endogamy and the other belonging to a big Syrian Christian family with a huge, highly respected ancestry, sparks were going to fly, and they did. The former’s traditional hatred for love marriages and the latter’s addiction for their ancestry and social status had kept them away for three years until one day, a miracle happened in the form of his parents giving consent, and it was only seven months ago that her parents approved of the same.

“Are you doing this just to make us mad? When we agree to your relationship you don’t want to be in it. Do you want us to hate him so that you can love him?” asked her mother.

“Both of you won’t understand” replied her.

“It is only because we understood you that we agreed to your marriage” said her father.

“You know something? I am going to take all my things from there and is never going back to him” she added as she walked outside slamming the door with full force as her mother kept on staring.

“What are you staring at? She is obviously your daughter” screamed the father.

She ran into what used to be her home in full speed, only to ram into her husband dropping both of them on the sofa with torn the curtain over them. There was a moment of silence after the touch.

“Do you really think that we should become a bad example of a love story after all these things we have gone through?” he asked.

“Absolutely not. As far as you can do the cooking today” she said.

“Is it Parachute Advansed Body Lotion that you are using?” he asked while holding her hand.

“Yes, that hasn’t changed during these days” she answered.

“Lets cook then. I think I will try to make dosa today” he said.

“Can we watch P.S. I Love You today?” she asked.

“And after that, 50 First Dates” he said as he rushed to the kitchen.

“And don’t forget the curtain” she added.

There was never the need for words to find an excuse or show the love, and even as they didn’t look at each other for days, there was the magic of touch, a moment which once again ignited the spark of love in them which had gone unnoticed in the busy life. They found passion, and realized the ultimate truth that there was no lack of love, and their romance had not vanished into thin air just because of an argument – Parachute Advansed Body Lotion believes you can #BringBackTheTouch.
