After a long summer break, school started yesterday again for three year old Yog. I was trying to mentally prepare him to go to school since the last few days. His response, so far, had been mixed. Some days he seemed excited to go back to school and some days he used to out rightly refuse to go to school. “ I will come to office with you Mama! I don’t want to go to school!”.

A recent lesson I learnt in life – The biggest paradox of life is that in order to make any change happen, we have to first accept life as it is, with all its beauty and its ugliness. We have to accept that some days we will be cheated. Some days we will be hurt. Some days we will cry till our heart breaks. When we have accepted these facts and are at peace with ourselves and with those around us, it is then, that we can hope to start the process of change.
