As students step into college, mothers go through a million emotions! There is a fine balance between holding on and letting go, and finding that sweet spot becomes a constant struggle and adventure!
Poem from a mom’s perspective!
Letting go is hard
But who said life was easy!
We have given you roots
It is time for you to grow your wings!
We have shown you the world through our eyes
Now, it is our turn to see them through yours!
You know how to prioritize
Never forget to prioritize yourself along the way!
You know how to handle big challenges
Don’t miss out enjoying the small things in life!
You know we would just be a message or call away
So never let yourself feel lonely any day!
You know life is full of ups and downs
Remember that both of them do not last for long!
While one expects you to learn humility
The other expects you to find your friends!
It is all about riding the wave
and bracing yourself through the bumps!
Be open to trying new things
and willing to adapt and grow along the way!
Remember to lend a helping hand and ask for one, when in need
Together, you would be able to walk a longer distance!
Figure out your own way to express yourself
As the more you communicate, the more you feel better!
And slowly & steadily, little by little, day by day
Whatever is meant for you, will make its way!
Wishing all the students stepping into college, best wishes for their bright future!
To all the moms sending their children off to college, how are you treading the balance?
