I have not written any article since my first post in March 2018! It is so easy to feel overwhelmed, to tell yourself that you will do it tomorrow... 1 year and a half goes, and you have not come back to your blog or whatever you told yourself you would do. But I have an excuse, and a good one (Obviously, excuses are always good!). Hakeem was growing up and he was taking all of my time. I decided that I was going to focus on him until he goes to pre-school. Even if it meant not much money coming in...
For the story, with my 2 children, I did exactly the same: I left my job after my pregnancy and decided to stay home for their first 2 years of age because I believe that a baby does not want to be anywhere but with his mum. I just could not leave them with anyone else. Who else apart from me would give them the love and attention they want? Both times, it was hard financially but I have no regrets whatsoever as I followed my heart and guts to stay with my babies.
In the first year of Hakeem, I could start my own business, put my systems in place, filmed my Youtube videos, because he was sleeping a lot and not walking yet. When he started to walk, that was another story! So I worked on my nutrition course during the night, my coaching course during his afternoon naps and with the few mummies I had the chance to coach whenever I had someone to help me with him. As I was struggling to get all of the other projects done and it was stressing me, I just told myself: focus on Hakeem and Layanah, you will go back to business when he starts pre-school.
Here we are: he started 2 weeks ago, had a few days to settle and is now very happy to go to school every morning; and me too!! What a relief to get some time for myself only!!! As I mentioned in my previous post, blogging is one of my goals. I have always loved to write and I would like to share what I hope will help some of you.
Now, let's see what I will be talking about in my next post. I will use the ideas that I have received from some of you after I asked the question in my instagram story. I know I talk a lot about myself here... if you have any suggestions or you want me to share about anything, please feel free to comment and I will do my best to give you some value. I promise it will not only be about my life, but more about helping you on anything that you feel I could help with, and hopefully some fun as well :)
Thanks for reading,
PS: I don't wear glasses, it was just for the picture, I look more serious ;)
