Growing up shouldn't necessarily mean moving onto the next level in your life and becoming completely mature for your age. Actually, it should also be a "glowing" phase in your life. Honestly, I have been under the impression that growing only refers to aging physically and the eventual understanding of a person's countless responsibilities/duties.

However, I have begun to realize what the "glowing" aspect of growing actually means. It is when a young girl gets married and then proceeds towards the next phase of life called motherhood. This is exactly when the evolution of the young girl actually begins.

I believe that the impeccable and sublime phase of motherhood is what actually causes a young girl to fully blossom into a vibrant young woman. I'm saying this due to my recent conversation with my mother, aunt, and grandma. I began by asking them what was the most fruitful journey in your life? All of them answered by saying that motherhood shaped their life extensively and further provided them with another full-fledged reason to live.

In other words, they have briefly mentioned that babies are just like flowers that have to be nurtured immensely in order to fully bloom. After hearing this, I have fully understood why women tend to glow the most when they are expecting! In fact, the biological process of creating life and then bringing a couple's symbol of love into the world is indeed an amazing feat.

It is astonishing how motherhood can change a woman's life remarkably. During our conversation, I was able to learn how much hard work is dedicated toward nourishing a child and their overall upbringing. I'm forever grateful for what my mom has done for me and is still doing for me till this day. It takes an enormous amount of stamina and courage to effectively bring up a child and I have carefully observed my mother throughout the years. Essentially, women are no longer completely free to behave irrationally and impatiently. Motherhood exposes them to many life-changing skills, many of which revolve around time management and patience.

On the other side of the spectrum, once a woman becomes a mother, they have to make some important career-changing decisions. Many mothers become working mothers and some become stay-at-home mothers for some time. Some mothers tend to devote most of their time playing and taking care of their children just like my mother and grandma. Whereas, many women are awesome at both balancing work and their motherly responsibilities.

I'm from the school of thought that women are free to decide what they want best and they shouldn't be restrained from venturing out and advancing in their careers. Excelling in their careers is an incredible delight if they have full support from their family and are able to actively balance both responsibilities.

A mother's love is unconditional and we will always be indebted to them for bringing us into the world. Finally, I would like to give a shout out to all the amazing super-women out there who have proved to be affectionate, creative, and impressive role-models for their children!

When You Give A Girl A Papa

She'll learn enough lessons to last a lifetime.

When you give a girl a Papa she'll have the best adventures.

She'll run around atop his shoulders and learn to fly. Her imagination will never run dry and she'll always be down for a laugh. He'll tell her stories and wipe away her tears. When you give a girl a Papa she'll have memories to last her years.

Papa is German for Dad but in America, it has become a slang term for grandpa. And while it is just a word, for some, it has a deeper meaning. Papa isn't just a grandfather, he's a best friend, the instigator of mischief, a protector, a storyteller, a rock, the strongest man you know and, most importantly, a hero.

Papa can turn ordinary, everyday activities into an adventure. From a young age, I was running behind him as quickly as my little legs could carry me ready for that day's adventure. I was always down for anything Papa was doing, following him in his daily chores and mimicking his every move. Cuddling up and watching sports in his lazy chair was my favorite time of the day because he always told the best stories. Sitting there hanging onto every word he said because it was the most important thing I ever heard.

Papa is full of experience and wisdom. His wise words provide comfort every time I am sad. He can always make me laugh to fight the tears away. I'm not sure how, but he always knows what to say to make me feel better. Papa is a fearless force that never bows and is never broken. He can weather all of the storms while smiling and laughing. I can only hope to have that resilience when facing life's problems. And when Papa was struggling with his own battles, I will stand right next to him, ready to fight and do all I can for him.

Papa can do a happy dance via the phone so he is the person to call when something good happens. He is always there to celebrate life and all its joy. And, even though he tried to hide them, he cried happy tears the day of my high school graduation. I pretended not to notice.

Leaving Nana and Papa's house is always the worst part of the trip. Driving away waving my hand in the air with tears welling in my eyes because I can't wait for the next adventure. Disappointing Papa was the scariest thing you I could think of, but I knew that he would never stay that way for long. There was always a lesson to learn from mistakes.

He is the man I model all men after. If they don't treat me the way Papa demonstrated, they are not worthy of my time. If they don't make me laugh or have that twinkle of passion in their eyes and fire in their soul like my Papa, then they aren't the man for me.

Papa is my hero. I would give anything to be like him, to stand strong and hold the world together when it just wants to fall apart. To be able to make anyone laugh and feel right at home. To fight for what I believe in and work hard to achieve my goals. To have charisma and charm. To deal with people who wrong me with class and kindness. To follow my faith with questions because that is the only way to make your beliefs stronger. To be the person everyone speaks of with a fond memory in their eye.

At the end of it all, he is my Papa and no one can take his place. I can and will drop anything to be by his side. He has shaped me into the person that I am working to be. I will always call him for advice and kind words.

Best friends come in many forms, but my favorite will always be my Papa.

A Letter To The Moms In My Life

The urban dictionary provides plenty of definitions for what a mother is.

The urban dictionary provides plenty of definitions for what a mother is like: "the best person on earth because she raised you to be who you are and probably loves you no matter what" or "the most amazing, strong, loving, and heroic woman you will ever know."

To my mother, I want to thank you for raising me to be independent, self-sufficient and driven.

Because of you, I am so much stronger than I ever imagined.

To my boyfriend's mother, I want to thank you for being the mother to the man I love.

Because of you, I have a kind, generous man to take care of me and cherish me. I have a second motherly figure in addition to my own to rely on.

To my grandma, I want to thank you for being a rock for me, and our whole family.

Because of you, our family is seemingly capable of anything. You are so loving and supportive and it has a lasting effect on everyone you meet.

I never knew how blessed I was to have the women in my life until I moved away to college and now that I know, I can't repay them enough. There's no way I would be who I am today without the influence of the incredible women in my life.
