So a lot of you have been asking me recently how I manage work with being a mom.
Balke it’s not even hardwork, it’s teamwork.
To be honest, I couldn’t do it alone.
I alhamdulillah have my family who supports and loves me.
And I can work with a free mind because I know that Rumaisa is in safe hands.
But yes, working with being a mom means that I have to wake up to go to work with only 2-3 hours of sleep. It means that I have to come back home and no matter how tired I am, I have to put up a happy face and spend time with my family, because that’s the kind of person I want to be.
That’s the kind of mom and wife I want to be. To be there for my family, to laugh with them and cry with them.
It literally all boils down to what you want to do and how much you want to invest in your self and in your dreams. 🦋
The only limit that you have are the ones you make in your head. I know this may sound a little bookish, but it’s true. If you think that ‘oh, I cannot do this, it’s too hard’. Believe me, you will NOT be able to do it because subconsciously you are thinking that you won’t be able to.
Allah miyan kehte hai ke Jesa Gumaan Rakho Ge Mai Wesa Hi Doonga.
When Rumaisa is being super cranky and just won’t sleep and I am super tired and I know it will be morning in an hour or two and I will have to get up and go to work. I don’t get irritated with her or myself (mostly🙊) because I know that this is the life that I chose for myself and everytime I am a little depressed or exhausted and I think that I won’t be able to do it or that I’ll have to quit my job/blog because it’s just not working.
I sit down, calm myself and think of all the reasons that I started. I think that nothing worth having ever comes easy.
And I think that when Rumaisa grows up she’ll know that women are built not just for cooking or washing. They can do so much more. She’ll know that they can have dreams. And she’ll know that if she has a dream she’ll have to work for it and the only limit that she has will be the ones that she makes up in her head. 🌸
That’s what my mom taught me and that’s what I’ll teach my daughter InshAllah. 🕊
P.S I got this dress stitched. 🌸
