The life of a woman is multi-faceted. Unlike men, women have to handle different aspects of life. There are women issues that they need to attend to such as their spouse, family, career, business, education, health and fitness and raising kids. They are required to not only take care of their families but also give birth to children and then raise the children. Women are blessed with the power that enables them to handle numerous women affairs at the same time.
When a girl child is born, she is unaware of the responsibilities that awaits her when she grows up. If a girl is not a healthy and fit woman, she may not be able to handle those responsibilities and get frustrated. Therefore it is important that a woman takes good care of her physical and mental health. Her education is equally important as it is the knowledge that empowers a woman to become a business woman or a career woman along with being a successful mother, daughter, wife, or a sister. The career of a woman makes her more independent and gives her the confidence to face many challenges of life, be it professional life or personal life.
When ladies become brides, it is the turning point in their lives. Marriage opens many new doors for their lives. She is expected to look elegant and beautiful and also look after the home affairs. When she is expecting, her body requires utmost care and rest. This is one period in her life that takes her towards the pleasure of being a mother. In most cases, a nursing mother is forced to stay at home and take care of the newborn. But at the same time, she also wishes to pursue her career and remain independent. At this time, a woman can try various options and join some women’s groups and become a work at home mum. Gradually, the women become very busy mums. They are able to juggle between different roles of home-makers, career woman, business woman, wives, friends, mothers, and daughters at the same time.
