I really don’t like to be organised. In fact you can hear from my family that I am a lazy b(m)um! I don’t really plan things well but being a new mother I really can’t say I don’t plan ahead and work with the flow. Even when I was a lecturer I hated the lesson plan but to survive in the field I had to. And in fact my mom was proud then that I took that much effort. Then planning wasn’t my thing but the moment babyA came into our life I started planning everything as I didn’t want to miss anything to be done in her life which the Almighty had blessed me with. Starting from the breast-crawling till now everything goes as per my research and my plans. Only then I realized how a planned life gives a less chaotic life. Even now my home is messy but we do some productive work as planned the previous night al hamdulilah. From this month i have planned to write up my monthly goals so that i will be able to be a more productive mom for my sweet kiddo in shaa Allah
Being a first time mommy in a nuclear setup handling things all alone though with the support from my husband i felt planning would help me to reduce my stress. So when i plan my day the previous night i feel relaxed and our journey is smooth al hamdulilah. Even alizeh gets a structured input of what she is doing. You might ask whats there of being structured and unstructured at the age of 17 months? People do things based on their capacity and available resources and my motive is to reduce her screentime infact no screentime at all as much as possible. This can happen only when i plan and organize my tasks and complete them as per schedule so that i can concentrate more on her. Planning the schedule previous day helps me accomplish stuffs.
Take steps to be healthy and fit both physically and mentally. Being away from my family back in India and concentrating on babyA all alone myself, I really forget to concentrate on my health and my husband’s health. We both are growing sideways and we have realised we should stop the growth sideways. In shaa allah will spend atleast 45 minutes for our fitness. In fact babyA and I go for a walk but its a jolly kind rather than an actual fitness walk where i can shed some of my pounds.
Build a strong relationship with the Almighty
I really want to build a strong relationship with the Almighty. In shaa allah my goal is to pray on time as per the ruling and pray with full concentration and be a role model for my daughter in being pure and pious. In shaa allah have plans to read Quran with meaning and read atleast one juz a day. This practice will give my family peace and happiness.
Now your question will be how you will check if this is done regularly. I have placed a board in my kitchen and i do write my plan on the right hand side and follow if i am working based on my plan. Once the tasks are completed for the day I write them in my diary. In shaa allah will be getting a journal in a short span and will record on them regularly so i can work on it in the near future. This will help me when I am going to homeschool for my daughter in shaa Allah.
Have plans to write my monthly goals on my blog so that it will be productive and can look back to compare if i am going forward or not.
