Mom is catching up with a school friend who is now a successful business-owner.
Friend: "So, the kids are at school most of the day. How do you spend time?"
Mom: " Well, am attending Yoga classes, practice music or read a book- whatever catches my fancy"
Friend: " Hobbies! Um... what else do you do?"
Mom: " My blog covers events across Bangalore and I volunteer with a women's self help group"
Friend: " Does any of this make money?"
Mom : " No, but they keep me happy!"
Friend: "How can something make you happy if there are not financial gains or monetary returns? "
I saved my breath from having to explain myself that Money isn't the be-all & end-all!
And here I vow to step into the New Year and only do things which shall keep me in high spirits but don't cost (or give) a penny!
Yoga/books/music: Physical, Mental and Spiritual health
Blog / Volunteer: Community and Social well-being
Being with my Boys : Happiness Abound!
