Who puts an expiry date on Women’s dreams??

This questions haunts me from the day I watched a south Indian movie ‘How Old Are You??’….Is there an expiry date for our dreams??…If “yes” who is the culprit behind the scenes…?? We ourselves or the Society???

Mostly after the marriage, regardless of the gender, our dreams just stay as dreams in the dumpiest dusty corner of our hearts. Both of the partners work for the family, and at certain point of time the priority shifts..We ladies who are emotionally too attached to our kids and family, think that our dreams can be waited…and waited..!! Of course there are exceptions with regrets in the later part of their lives.

Yes, we all will have some dreams or passion which pops up in our mind while we are included in a heated up nostalgic conversation with our dear ones. Today, when I was helping my kindergartner for writing her dreams in memory book of the year, it took my mind to my childhood days..Yes, there are some interesting dreams yet to be explored.. Different reasons like responsibilities, society notions on role of women in taking care of the family, lack of motivation and support, fear of failure, lack of confidence and financial support, last but not the least our laziness could be culprit…!!

Just think about us. We women are naturally gifted with more emotional power of rearing children and taking care of them compared to men.If the job was given to men , many of them could have gave up even at the primary stages after getting disgusted and fed up. Which means, we are exceptionally talented by the divine law. We are capable of following our dreams. Moreover, in most of the modern families where both of the partners are working , spouses have started assisting in household chores against the society notions. In that event of a harmonic life, we get more time to focus on ourselves.

So now it is only about to have a dream. Don’t worry if you haven’t any yet, its never too late. If you can hear the Lub-Dub sound of your heart, that means you still have time for dreams. Do remember the quotes from The Alchemist “Its the possibility of having a dream come true that makes the life interesting”

“Its the possibility of having a dream come true that makes the life interesting”

by Paulo Coelho

Don’t let the age or time decide your course of life. Hope you remember the founders of McDonald’s and KFC’s…they started at the age of 52 and 62 respectively.. Late lady bloomers Martha Stewart(40’s), Vera Wang(40)…so on..and the internet sensation tea shop couples in 70’s who traveled 23 countries so far(Vijayan and Mohana Vijayan -their names may not be in Forbes but from my hometown) ..the success of these amazing personalities validate the statement that “our dreams doesn’t comes with an expiry date…no matter it’s a male or female..”. Next in the list maybe I or you… Remember, we all have only one life to it to the fullest. Don’t give room for doubts and fear…take it as it comes, learn from our mistakes. Give yourselves a second chance ,believe and work for it and the dream is all yours…!!!!

And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

  1. Just sharing what I learned from observing life and reading boot..happy to hear that it’s motivating at least some 😊😊..this genuine comments gives me energy to move on..thank you once again..😊


  2. I went through a brief time when the biggest fear I had about growing older was the thought that someday I might run out of dreams. But I am finding that at 67 my focus has turned toward the goal of getting closer to the Lord every day. Sometimes I feel excited without knowing why. Sometimes He’ll surprise me with a bit of serendipity that I might have dreamed of if I had thought of it. Sometimes the surprise is not so little a thing. While the future looks blurry, it doesn’t look dark. My God is in control, and His dreams are so much better than mine!
