(L) LIVE LOVE LAUGH (#AtoZChallenge 2019)

I have been very enthusiastic about life. I have cherished each moment of fun and laughter that I have got! In school and college, my friends used to comment that I have the loudest and most uncontrollable laughter. It was contagious. Once I started laughing, I would roll on the bed till tears came out of my eyes and I was totally breathless.

In recent times, I have realized that being pregnant is like riding on a roller coaster. I have already written about the distress I faced due to the rush of hormones and other physical and mental changes. By being mindful I overcame these fleeting feelings. 

Happiness is a way of life. We just have to be observant of the beauty and blessings that surround us. My mantra of 'Live Love Laugh' has helped me course through a lot of upheavals in my life.

It is said that when a mother cries the child in the womb cries and when a mother smiles the child smiles! I have observed that on days when I am sad, my baby is lethargic. On days when I am chirpy, my baby is active, vigorously kicking and moving inside me. Mother and child are linked in an inseparable bond! This bond has to be respected and nurtured. 

Live your life to the fullest, love more than you are capable of and laugh whenever you get the slightest chance. It creates a ripple of positive effect in your own life and that of your child. It extends to your family, friends and even strangers that you meet.

Do share your mantra of living and loving life!

(These AtoZ Challenge posts pertain to my thought process, physical and mental changes, stress levels, perspective, journey and experience as a first-time mother who has yet not delivered her baby.)

  1. What a lovely inspiring mantra! It makes me smile to know you have such a wonderful distinctive laugh - such things should always be celebrated. And yes to living as fully as you can, and loving with as much abandon as you can!

    I don't have a single mantra that inspires me - I tend to use one until I feel finished with for a while and then choose something else. When I find something new that inspires me, as part of pondering it and continuing to work with it daily, I often create a piece of art so I have something tangible as an ongoing reminder. Currently I'm working with something Hafiz said ""An awake heart is like a sky that pours light."

  2. Keep smiling always.

  3. Finding joy in life makes each moment something special, never to come again but always shining in our memories. :-)

  4. Brilliant!!

    Be You And Seek The Best Possible Outcome

  5. That's a wonderful mantra for everyone to live by! You're forming a bond of love and laughter with your child too :)

  6. Oh! You also love to laugh freely? Hahaha! Me too! :D
    Yes, I have noticed that even slightly older kids also get cranky when they see that their mother is not her usual upbeat self. They tend to pick their mommy's emotional environment very quickly. You're right about the bond.

  7. May you always stay happy and find reasons to love and laugh. It is such a delight to be a part of your beautiful journey.

  8. Kislaya,

    I had not heard that about a mother/child during pregnancy but I do follow the live, laugh, and love mantra. Three strong staples for a happy life. I often like watching a comedy that's sure to make me smile even laugh out loud to break stress in my world and when I do my whole being is lifted. Laughter is natural medicine for the soul.

    Thanks for visiting A2Z Little Mermaid art sketch Chef LOUIS over the weekend. Happy a2zing!
