Brought up by a strong mom , am very much inclined to the thought that women should be independent. I have always grown up watching my mom struggle with school,kids and home. Every another story of women who work is the same. The struggle keeps continuing even until the end of life. No women change nor men . So the story continues the same way. Either man is reluctant to help their struggling wife due to pride, time or they just don’t want to. When the case comes to managing home and work, it is always the women who are at stake.
I was not ready to put my dreams on a stake, hence took up what came up my own way. Even though I was not prepared or even dreamt about it, I took the power to decide that whatever comes my way is the best for me. And of course am happy to do it.
Ones I discovered my path, the satisfaction level in my life has always doubled. Even a penny I earn is just perfectly enough for me.
I request all women who are on break or not even started their work, to do something they are always good at. I have seen many women in my village , who even worked part time jobs to earn enough to complete their studies. There are many kids who go to school and take up part-time jobs during vacations to help their parents.
Even though a majority of us have never gone through such difficulties, we need to learn a lot from them. Always strive to do what you are good it , even if it is as good as stitching or any other kind of art. Nowadays there is no limit for marketing your work. Social media is the best platform , where even an amateur can flourish.
Never give up because you are old enough. Age is never a barrier for doing good for yourself. Retirement is just a break away from one work, if you enjoy something else ,then keep doing it.
For all those women who never got an opportunity to start working on due to new responsibilities , take up something that will keep you happy, other than household work.
