I've been doing some contemplating and listening to several motivational speakers and I was really moved by this speakers talk about "What's your why?" It really touched me, enough that I had to come on the blog and write something. It made me look at my homemaking career differently.
I strive my hardest to put what I do with being mindful of who my Creator is. Sometimes I forget and go into my feelings. My feelings often don't show that I have a why or at least a why of priority. It's so easy to do what you have to do when you have a 'why.' Something hit me pretty hard today and it made me think hard about my role. My why is to please Allaah but my why is also that my children and husband can get closer to Allaah and to have a beautiful life. I need to exercise so that I can be healthy enough to keep my husband strong and help him get close to Allaah. I need to be healthy so that I can keep helping them and worshiping because I can't afford to be sick.
I'm not working just for me. I have responsibilities and if I don't get better I can't help my family get better. My family is counting on me and they are so important to me. I have 5 daughters and so I need to be handling my affairs correctly because I'm raising women. I can't afford to let my girls down. If I fall off, they fall off. Even my son. I need him to see what a woman is supposed to be like.
Sometimes us ladies can get so upset because we don't like how our husband does something and we quit. We get an attitude and then we don't want to do our job or we do our job halfway. We have to sustain the attitude and action of diligence despite how we feel because our why is important.
So really sit down and try to figure out your why so that you can shape your actions to match.
