Salam Alaikum My dear Muslimamas,
Alhamdulillah for the blessing Allah has given us.The blessing of being mothers, of being wives.
There is no other feeling as holding your baby for the first time in your hands.
There is no way you can describe the feeling of finding someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with.
However, when we take on these roles, most of us mamas are so busy taking care of everyone we tend to forget ourselves.We tend to ignore our needs.Always rushing from one place to the other, doing groceries, school runs, taking the kids to activities and so on.
When do you ever get time for your self? When do you ever pick up some type of activity that interests you?
We tend to only focus our attention on everyone else but ourselves. Its always I have to do this for the kids, I have to make sure this is done before the husband gets back, and so on. Always worrying about everyone else but yourself. Dont take me wrong, you definitely need to take care of your family, however it shouldn’t be at the expense of your own self.
Often times we overwork ourselves to the point of exhaustion, we still go on even when sick(hey someone has to do the laundry right?) wrong! I’m sure the house can survive a few days, you can’t!
When we are sick, when we are so tired, and exhausted, we still continue taking on too much,not wanting to delegate( i know I’m guilty of that) haha.
Between these roles, wife mother and daughter you sometimes become overwhelmed.
So how do you juggle all of that and still be you/ fulfil your own needs, stay sane.
We will be discussing more on this here, along with tips , advice and other stuff that concerns you muslimah!
Your Fellow Muslimama
