Single Mom Decision

Single Mom Decision

SINGLE MOM FINAL DECISION 

Many of you have been asking me to post the struggles I faced and what made me take the separation.To tell you the truth it was the hardest decision i have ever made and the best one.

Every girl wants a Prince charming in here life,ending with a fairy tale wedding.I was one of them.It was an arrange marriage (but I had dated him for a few months after our engagement 💍.So basically I knew him and so did he).It was 2011 when I was totally excited about getting married in December. Having all my loved ones around during my lavish wedding and getting married to the one I love was a dream come true.Never knowing what the future holds for me.

It was after March 2012 when things started to fall apart.He was no longer the person I fell in love with.His violent and aggressive behavior started showing up.I could go on and on with what issues happened during my marriage and the details but as I belong to a respectable family I don’t want to make fun or insult anyone online.Anyway,During my 6 month of pregnancy 🤰 I decided to move out and take a ‘khula’.*(when a girl requests to get separated from her husband) as I have had enough of him.My parents could see the depression I was going through and they were with me.He started turning violent and disrespectful.The first few months were very difficult for me.Being 6 months pregnant 🤰 and seeking a divorce from my husband was the toughest decision anyone could take.I wanted a happy life and a bright future for my coming child,but knew I couldn’t get one if he’s around.Somewhere in my mind I wanted to give him a second chance but knew he would never change.Negative thoughts 💭 were running through my head as it would in anyone’s head and kept asking myself questions

Is this the right thing to do’?.Does he deserve me?.
Will he love me the way I want him to if I stay back?.
Is it the right decision? If I give him a second chance will he change?.
‘Should I go ahead with my decision?Why/Why not?
‘Should I abort my child?.

Note: I wrote down these q’s on a piece of paper with the answers.Most of them ended up neg.so it helped me to take the decision!.

These negative thoughts made my pregnancy worse (had more doctor visits than usual) and with him around I could see my life fall apart.Many of my relatives were against my separation and told me things like ‘I would be a bad example for my cousins and others. etc etc .Seriously!! Like I cared (my parents were with me that’s all I wanted).The only thing I wanted was a better life for my child 👶🏻 and myself .I knew he wasn’t a good example and I had no shame to admit that he was the one to be blamed.The first thing I did was to delete him from my contact list,social media and every other network he was on.Even though I still wasn’t sure about my decision and was expecting him to make it up to me but he didn’t .There might be some mistakes that I might have made but his mistake were bigger,unforgettable as well as unbearable.

I was planning to abort my child at first but then realized that what does she has to do with everything going on.she hasn’t entered the world yet.why should I blame her for his mistakes.Thinking that staying with him would not only make my life worse but my daughters as well so I accepted the challenge of moving on as a single mother to show him i don’t need his support to live my life the way I wanted too.

It took almost an Year to be granted a divorce.During this period I gave birth to Princess Z.The way he behaved during those months and after made me realize that I took the right decision and he was never meant to be in my life or my daughter’s.A man who doesn’t even bother to visit his own daughter or ask how she is doesn’t hold any respect for me.

Princess Z doesn’t know about her father yet .When the right time will come,will surely tell her all about it but only when she’s mature enough to understand it in detail,cause I don’t want her to compare who was right and who was wrong,just want her to understand that some people aren’t meant for each other.

It’s been 3 years since my separation and things have changed in a better way.I couldn’t have done it without the support of my parents and siblings.They supported me in every way they could.Princess Z and I are living a life we never imagined we could have.All thanks to the support of my parents and siblings).I seriously couldn’t have done it without their help.I thank #Allah for giving me the best parents and Princess Z the best grandparents/uncles and aunts who love her unconditionally.

I am proud of my decision and don’t regret anything!.

EATLESS Health Supplement

EATLESS Health Supplement

EAT LESS HEALTH SUPPLEMENT

I have been trying to lose weight for a few months now.Every year I try too but never succeed 😔.The first step I thought of taking this time was control my eating habits.Dubai has a lot to offer when it comes to food and people who are foodies like me it’s difficult for them to control their appetite with so much food around.

Anyway to help me lose weight (before New Year that is),I ordered for a 14-day course health supplement called eat less.As the name says it eat less,it helps control your appetite and helps you stay away from fat and sugary food.This product is 100% natural made with only one ingredient (100% natural spinach extract). Its Scientifically proven and having no side effects.

I began my day by drinking this powder mixed in water/juice.(First thing in the morning) then carrying on with my healthy breakfast 🍳.(I am one of those person who usually skipped breakfast as I can’t have a heavy meal in the morning but tried to,these 2weeks). The first few days were hard for me.I planned quitting but some motivation in me kept me going.The taste didn’t seem so bad at first but as days were passing by I wanted to get over it 😫.Everything I ate made me taste like spinach 😖.Also,a few toilet visits were there as well in the beginning but ended soon.My diet was normal.Eating regular home-made food but in small portions,totally avoiding fast food,drinks plus junk food.I was hoping to lose up to 5-6kgs in 2 weeks but unfortunately lost only 2 kg in 2 weeks

Anyway I am happy to lose 2kgs as well (at least I lost some kg 🙂) and am planning to continue with this after New Year Eves with a stricter diet and a healthy lifestyle.

NOTE:This Appetite Suppression supplement should be taken as a daily dose first thing in the morning as it can then work throughout the day.

KADINSKY CIRCLES 

This week me and Princess Z chose an activity that’s all about colors and different big and small circles.

Before I go on,let me go a bit into the history and introduce you to the artist who was behind it all.

Wassily Kadinsky, was a Russian born French Expressionist.His worked looked more like the images below but one of his most recognizable pieces of artwork is his color study known as Squares with Concentric Circles/Rings (Farbstudie Quadrate) (Below Last).This is where the activity is differed from.

For this activity you will need:

Colored Paper

A Pair of Scissors

Glue

Instructions:

This activity can be done by either painting,sticking,drawing ,stamping different sizes of circles or any other medium your kids have interest in.Once decided then is all about having fun and playing around with big and small colored circles and layering them one on the other and creating your Kadinsky masterpiece.

It’s all about using as many colors as possible

Princess Z chose to draw,cut and stick circles from different colored paper on to another colored square.Making a colored masterpiece of her own.

Princess Z Kadinsky Circles Masterpiece turned out to be like this

This activity helps increase physical-development from gross and motor skills to free-writing skills.as well as encourages kids to do large pieces of work with large movements without making a mess around.

The best thing about this activity is that it’s not at all messy and can be done anywhere either at school/home.In the end its all about having fun and spending time together.

P.S-This is one of Princess Z’s favourite activity.
