On International Women’s Day (March 8) nobody wants to read about fighting for equal rights and empowerment anymore. This day is not celebrated because our gender feels this is opportunity to express themselves or anything even closely related. It’s just a celebration like any other day; it’s the celebration of love and respect for everyone. And BlabberCat narrates every strong woman’s story through Darshana Banthia’s eyes, photographer and visual story teller.
This story is about today’s woman who is compelled to perfect all areas and aspects in life. She wants to be the most gorgeous, the best dressed, have the perfect body, a great chef, successful and independent at work and everything laced with a permanent smile. Lets face it, even though it’s amazing to try to be good at everything, it’s sometimes physically impossible and we are too harsh on ourselves for that. This story is too remind you that whatever we are doing is ultimatley to be happy. We want to take you back to your childhood and bring out your inner child.
Competition is neck deep in every field and at every age. Let the moment stop and think about the aspect of one’s psyche that is believed to retain feelings as they were experienced in childhood. The aspect of your consciousness that is naturally innocent, playful, uncomplicated, and whose approach to life is simple and straightforward.
It is also a part of you that has an easy sense of connectedness to spirit, where spirit and you are not separate from each other, but an integrated whole. If you’ve experienced dysfunctional behaviour in your childhood, you may need to get in touch with the inner child in order to heal and restore its consciousness to its natural state so that it can be a resource within you.
Dismiss the tick-ticking of your biological clock. It doesn’t matter how old you are, there is a little child within who needs love and acceptance. If you’re a woman, no matter how self-reliant you are, you have a little girl who’s very tender and needs help. If you’re a man, no matter how macho you are, you still have a little boy inside who craves warmth and affection. And there’s no harm in letting your hair
Working with the inner child is most valuable in helping to heal the hurts of the past. At this point in our lives—right now—we need to begin to make ourselves whole and accept every part of who we are. We need to communicate with our inner child and let it know that we accept the part that did all the stupid things, the part that was funny looking, the part that was scared, the part that was very foolish and silly—every single part of ourselves.If you want to share your ‘Inner child’s’ story with the world, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
