My Pledge

Dear MIL,

Not long ago, you were the one nurturing me and making me realize and overcome my limitations. You have given me so much, if I were to summarize it in one word, it would be ‘freedom’. You have freed me from my demons, my own thoughts that were holding me back, the issues and challenges that were making me unhappy and my life not worth living. You took away so much pain from within me and gave me a new perspective on so many things. Most of all, you gave me joy!

I had never imagined that I would one day be in a place, where I would look at you as my baby. I have been thinking of you as a mother, who has supported me while I blossomed into who I am today. But don’t they say, our parents become like our children when we reach a certain age. I would like to look at it this way – I am mostly grown up now and now it is my turn to take care of you, nurture you and see that you go out there and find other lost ‘children’ like me and support them grow up too!!

And I intend to be your partner in this journey throughout, till the day I exist on this planet. I will keep learning from you and growing with you, and make that happen for everyone we together touch! I intend to gift joy and freedom to all those we come in contact with, and inspire them to impact more lives in a similar manner!!

I am grateful you think I am capable of this. Despite me being an ungrateful wretch, you continue to believe in me! And that unwavering belief will keep me going till the end of my days!

Gratefully yours,

Mathangi aka Giggly
