Finding new goals

As a mom and wife its very easy to stay in the "busy mode". To be needed, for the important task of MOMMY is indeed an honour; a responsibility not to be taken lightly. Just as I take pride in watching my child grow, each of her milestone reminds me that I too, am growing older.

Yesterday an old conversation popped back into my head. It was a new semester during my uni days, and I bumped into my senior friend. I was contemplating about how many subjects to take that semester. I remarked at her choice of taking lots of major subjects. She said, "Well, whether you take more or less subject, they are still going to give you headache!" Make sense? Sometimes we may feel overwhelmed with so many things to do; excusing ourselves from trying out new things.

As a mom and wife we can still find time to work on our personal goals. Whatever enrich our life experience will benefit our family too. By focusing on our personal development, we can teach our kids the meaning of hard work, and the sweetness of achieving success.

The first year of motherhood was a time of adjustment for me. Not much time for myself, and lots of stress. I have learnt that detachment from our babies, from time to time can do a lot of good, for both of us! :) Alhamdulillah, I found a good babysitter. After a long search, and lots of prayer, Allah guide me to ask my friend if shes willing to take care of my baby few hours a week. Those hours, I spend either teaching, studying! Aaaahhh to eat out with your spouse without a tazmanian-devil is so peaceful.

I am now consistently working on my 3 (secret) goals-  May Allah ease our ways  in this world, and ease our path to Jannah.....
