The title for this post is a verse of Sufi poetry-
- The most amazing thing that I learned this week is that blogging is addictive. I have so much to say and share-There are so many amazing people around the world, who can add so much value to your life. That the world is indeed small and if I can’t find people that I relate to in my own city- maybe I can find them on God’s world somewhere. My blog is a week old and I am enjoying expressing myself even without an audience 🙂
- I learned that I have been stuck in rut for 7 years and praise be to my Creator, I’m getting a part of myself back that I had lost among the pile of dirty dishes, the diapers and being an oceanand some away from my parents and siblings. Once my mother said to me (when she came to visit from Pakistan to help me when LF#2 was born) “Beta (my child), you are like a photocopy of your former self-where, did my original go?” Where did I go?
Don’t get me wrong-Being a mother is the most important thing I have ever done in my life. Motherhood is a badge of honor that I wear proudly. I am grateful that I was chosen for this responsibility. But giving up a career to stay at home can consume you. Especially since there is so much lip service is given to motherhood but so little respect. But I have no regrets just happy to say-baby I am BACK!
So what did you learn this week?
