Motherhood Wonders

"And Allah has extracted you from the wombs of your mothers not knowing a thing, and He made for you hearing and vision, and intellect that perhaps you would be grateful." An-Nahl (16:78)

The Sky is the Limit

You are amazing!

You are strong!

You can do your best!

You are born to learn, grow, and imagine. You are created to explore, discover, and change. You are given this life to love, share, and live. 

You will make mistakes. You will fall. You will break. Then, you will get back up. You will keep moving because such is human curiosity and resilience. 

You have so many opportunities to discover your talents. It is okay if life has put a lot on your plate right now. Just remember to keep dreaming because that is key to creativity. We all have it in us to offer amazing new ideas to the world. As a mother, sometimes it can be hard to take out time to dedicate to your creative side, but I promise you it is possible. 

The key to fitting in time for self-discovery is turning off all distractions.

Our minds are built to grow and thrive on newness and change. To tune in to my inner self, I have been practicing to shut off all distractions (mainly technology) such as Instagram, t.v.etc. You will begin to notice how your mind shifts from thinking to relaxing and then thinking again, but this time the thinking will happen on a whole new level. Your ideas will surprise you. 

Through these quiet moments, you will cultivate a growth mindset. A growth mindset removes any limitations you may feel towards moving higher in life. Whether its education, career, relationships, or creativity, you will learn to keep all doors open.

Sometimes, I turn my phone off completely for a while so my mind is not anticipating any emails or messages. You will notice that this simple act can not only make you feel calmer but also more alert and receptive to what's happening around you. If you decide to meditate, you will enjoy it more deeply and if you work out, you will feel each stretch and pull. At times, we need to do things the old way to reap the true benefits of our efforts.
