After my Engineering degree I went for Masters in Project Managment just to become SAHM? .
Being a SAHM I have a full time job. I am running two important projects one project is my husband 😂😉. Other most important project is raising a son which means creating great man for the future. .
Believe me it does involve cost, time, schedule, quality, communications, scope management in doing grocery shopping, food plan of the baby & last but not the least as we are expats, this moving from one country to another after every 2 years or so involves all the knowledge areas of Project Manangement 😂. .
As Faryal Makhdoom said you are the CEO of your home, it’s true you are really the CEO of your entire empire called ‘HOME”. .
So Mommas! Never be guilty that you are SAHM after getting so many degrees, you are doing a great job, you are bringing up amazing human beings who will be responsible citizens of the future. #NOguilt.
So after posting the above blog on my instagram, I was bombarded with some comments & DMs that you should have done a simple degree instead of wasting your parents money on your engineering degree & occupying a seat which was just a waste of time as you are not doing job & ended up being a SAHM.
𝘋𝘪𝘴𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘮𝘦𝘳: I have huge respect for working moms as I can imagine things are not easier for them.
First of all in my opinion which may differ from others that when an 18 years old girl is choosing her career and follow her dream to become Engineer, Doctor, Pilot, Economist or whatever she wants to become, at that time she does not know what will come in the future, she makes her career, gets married and then if she decides to stay at home temperorary or permanently according to the circumstances, that does not mean her education was a waste of time. She has contributed enough to her career and contributing to the society as she is raising the men & women of the future.
𝘈𝘴 𝘕𝘢𝘱𝘰𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘯 𝘴𝘢𝘪𝘥, ” 𝘎𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘦 𝘢𝘯 𝘦𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳, 𝘐 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘪𝘳𝘵𝘩 𝘰𝘧 𝘤𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘦𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯“.
So let me tell you all SAHMs, do not get disappointed if someone tells you that your degree got wasted, you are doing a wonderful job, you are raising responsible citizens of the future. Your degree and time will be wasted if your kids are not happy kids. For your kids you are the school and the world, teach them whatever you know and show the world with open heart.
So Ladies, better to lift each other instead of making someone guilty as you do not know the circumstances of the other person. You never know why she choses to be SAHM, may be because she has no one to take care of kids while she is at work, it can be her priorities changed, it can be she cannot balance work and home together, sometimes husband & in laws issues, it can be due to health issues and the list go on. So better not to judge any SAHM. If you cannot give happiness to someone do not take their peace of mind at least.
