The new ‘Me’

Becoming a mom is a life changing experience. You start loving someone so much , that their life and their happiness becomes urs. You see all your dreams in a tiny sculptured piece u gave birth to. It’s like a piece of u with your heart outside ur body.

Leaving my full time well earning job initially when I became a mom was very tough. It got me into depression of wasting my life and hard earned experience of all past years. There were days that I used to cry while feeding Nayel. I used to love looking at my formal heel shoes and fancy handbags everyday that once I carried to work. Glancing over old pictures of my teaching days and reading my certificates and experience letters again and again.. I dearly missed going back to work.

.

What I then learnt was, its not all about me anymore. But I wanted to prove that I am important too. That’s where And when I started writing. A year now- I do get recognition from people who love my blog. And it brings smile on my face.

.

Going on events and socializing does look very fancy. What it doesn’t show is sheer hardwork, tight schedules , sometimes cranky and crying toodler- all with a mummy desire to look good too. It requires patience and a drive of willingness- I wanted Nayel to get a happy social exposure right from the beginning.

.

There were days he used to just cry and cling to me, and now Alhamdullilah he enjoys going out with mummy- when I see him interacting with other kids and adults, I smile – I feel Proud. I feel appreciated. I feel I’m doing the right thing 🙂
