All I want is a cup of hot tea

I wake up everyday wondering whether i will have the energy to finish the day. I keep thinking I am tired, I am done. All I want to do is sit around do nothing. Small wail from my side, reminds me that is just an impossible dream. Motherhood calls.

I do my usual routine, cook, in between dress her up to school, I sit around few minutes to only realize my tea turned cold. I reheat it , I put the clothes in the wash machine, I step outside only to find annoying leaves infront of my house, remove them , water the plants. I realised I still hadn’t had my tea, I reheat it again, this time I stood by it until I finished it, not quite enjoying it, rather gulping it as a routine. I look at the time only to realise work calls. I rush. And I M already half dead.

Funny part is, I enjoy all this to the bits, it’s something what I want to do rather than take it as a responsibility. But I have to say I am tired. I want to stop multi tasking. I want to stop being a mother, sister, daughter, wife, friend. I want to be me, just me for a day least . And sadly world changes, my definition of being a woman to ‘Being mother, sister, daughter, wife’ before it identifies the individual I am.
Note: Please don’t term this as feminism!

  1. Well said Ammu! This happens with all working women. Take two months break for no reasons and sit idle at home with ur daughter during her school break . Forget about profession and money and enjoy ur life as u like.good luck!
