Gymnasts- We twist ourselves into thin pretzels to fit in the part in life as mother, daughter, in-law, wife, sister, friend, employee, neighbor.
Jugglers- We are adept at juggling things, be it appointments or activities and multitasking. We can open a cookie jar while cradling a phone on one shoulder and sweeping the floor.
Trapeze artists- We are constantly moving from one activity to the next. Now, we are dropping the kids off at activities, the next moment we are running errands and later we are off to something else.
Fumnambulists- We are all walking a tight rope of neither too much nor too little, be it dieting or leniency with the kids.
Clowns- There is no dearth of circumstances for us to be clowns. We goof up, bungle, fumble and laugh at ourselves countless times.
Once we are born as human beings, we have no choice but to live the life that is chalked out for us, whether or not we like the path we are taking. However, if we are able to accept and laugh at our mistakes and carry on with the show, then the circus is well performed-- and is a truly amazing show.
I am a scientist by profession, employed in the life sciences industry, a mother of two awesome boys. I have always been interested in reading and writing. Words captivate and enthrall me. In my spare time, I like to write, read, go on nature hikes, try new recipes and travel.
