Motherhood something I am grateful for

ID-10086892

Since I was early twenties I was dreaming of being a mother. I adored children and I found them a real blessing from Allah. Taking a child in my arms was the most pleasurable thing I could do. But I could never imagine or feel how precious a child is for his mother until I became a mother myself.

I had my first child at the age of thirty and the second six years later. I was pregnant once between my boys but I lost it. I couldn’t express my happiness when I knew about my pregnancy that time. I was madly happy even more than I was with my first baby but this happiness didn’t last long and I lost it. It took me more than three other years to get pregnant again with my second child who is now nine years old. I am madly in love with my children they are the source of my happiness, I smile just when I see them or remember them when I am on my own. They are my treasure, my fortune and my reason for living. Being grateful and thankful for Allah for offering me these two precious creatures is the least I can do.

Why I tell you that because there are millions of mothers like me all over the world who are fighting to protect their children and to keep them healthy. Let’s support them with Shot@life with a small amount of money to save their children’s lives. These children may be the only source of happiness to these women living in very poor countries. Nobody else than mothers can feel the pain they may experience when they are unable to provide the necessary vaccines for their beloved children. Let’s support them and tell them they have sisters all over the world who care for them and their children.

Gratitude, the way to happiness


Another post from my blog My happiness journey



     Gratitude is to be content and thankful in every moment of your day.  It is to accept genuinely, thankfully, peacefully and with contentment whatever happens. A state of mind that could bring satisfaction and peace. When I try to visualize how my life will look like if I could live in gratitude, I see a life full of serenity, peace and bliss. It’ s heaven.

      I remember the first time my coach asked me to start a gratitude journal to help me shift my focus from what, I think, is missing in my life to what I already have and how helpful it was. I noticed again many graces I used to take for granted. The gratitude journal was one of the tools that helped me to improve my relationship with my mother. In my gratitude journal I mentioned that I am grateful for having my both parents alive and how supportive they  are to me. Then when I thought what I am thankful for them for, I realized that I am thankful for them for many things and my mother’s criticism and interference in my life were just a way to show her interest and care. Since then my relationship with my mother has totally changed and improved due to my gratitude perspective and journal. 

      Living with a gratitude feeling in all aspects of your life is not easy and needs practice to make it deep and  ingrained. Gratitude for things that you take for granted is helpful to notice the gifts  you keep receiving in every moment of your life. To realize the value of the things you take for granted just imagine your life without it. You never noticed that the pure fresh water is a grace because you find it whenever you need it, but imagine how your life would look like if you had to make great effort to have a glass of water. Imagine that all the things that you take for granted like water, air, sunlight, your senses, your home, your family, your health …etc are gone. How your life will  look like? Then think how will you feel when they come back one by one again. Sure you will eventually realize how valuable they are.

       To start living with a gratitude perspective you need to give up complaining. Complaining is a sign of lack of gratitude. So to strengthen your sense of gratitude you need to observe yourself and consciously make the right choice, either gratitude and gain the satisfaction and positive energy it brings or complaining and accept its negative energy in addition to the harm it brings to your health and your life.
