Home is where the heart is.

Hello friends, hope you all are well and getting along fine with your respective lives. As you might have read my latest post which deals with marriage and family, I thought it better to reblog my earlier post which deals with the safety net of a family and a home. These two are our basic requirements but sometimes we fail to invest as much time and energy into it, resulting in a friction between the members.

As we all know, a house becomes a home when a family resides in it and subsequently becomes a ‘home sweet home’ by the love and dedication, the family members tend to feel for each other. It’s  not hard to guess how the home would look like, lacking any of the above two.

As all the fingers of our hands are not equal, similarly  the disposition and habits of the family members, be it husband and wife, children and other extended members (in the case of joint family) can not be the same. The requirements are, a lot of patience, adjustments and perseverance by all to transform it into a harmonious dwelling.

Just for a small example, suppose husband, after a hair cut leaves traces of small hairs on the soap, the wife either would shout her lungs out for the indiscretion or calmly ask him to wash the bar to get rid of the irritating thing. If children do not remove their emptied bowls of cereal from the dining table or forget the smoothie glasses dry and uncleaned in their study table or for that matter not removing the discarded clothes to the laundry basket, after bath, its up to the matriarch, how she handles these. Leave aside, the hapless job of arbitrating the sibling quarrels and the adult fights.

The point is to be calm and persevere with the erring member untill the person correct his or her faults. Maintaining a pleasant and cheerful atmosphere at home is indeed a delicate balance. All the family members must strive to uphold it to preserve an atmosphere of general well-being.

It’s the responsibility of the homemaker to act like jokey, maneuvering, adjusting and channelising her entourage towards safety and happiness. The main focus should be on averting potential landmine of conflict which could jeopardize the peace of mind of all. Each should be aware of the problems faced by the other one and unitedly try to fix it at the earliest. Have fun and healthy banterings during the meal times. Give equal importance and attention to each member. Make their opinions count while taking any important decision. Don’t crack jokes at the expense of other’s sensibilities.

Friends, we must all try to keep the ambience of our respective homes so enticing, that one experiences an instant solace just getting inside it. Listening out each other’s grievances and acting upon, to rectify it may do the trick. A tidy clutter free home with caring people is the best recipe to make our lives blissful. Then why queer our own pitch by starting an argument and sticking on it for toxicity ‘s sake? Nip the problem in the bud, before it becomes a humongous one.

Keep smiling and try to bring a smile on other’s faces too!

Adieu for now.

    1. Yes, it’s highly imperative that a homemaker has a great understanding and sensible of the need of the each member of the family, in return every one in the family must be caring about the former too!!
