After having kids it is next to impossible to take some adult time out for myself. Life gets so BUSY that at times we end up putting ourselves last. Don’t get me wrong, I like being busy, busy is good but CRAZY busy is something I’m still trying to get used to. I know that one day my kids will grow up and I will miss these moments. I will miss those chubby cheeks and toothless smiles. The holding of my hand while crossing the road and running towards me for reassurance when things go wrong. I’m gonna miss the times when hugging mama in front of friends is neither cool or uncool…its just instinct. But most of all, I’m gonna miss being CRAZY busy. Point is ladies…this chaos will slow down one day, and our kids will change overnight (as someone told me that the minute her daughter became a teenager, she was someone different entirely).
In these chaotic times, it is important to have a “play date” with your partner or your friends. One of the biggest complaints I hear from couples is that once the kids left home they didn’t know who they were married to and where their friends went. Evolving WITH your partner is just as important as raising good kids. Here is a what I wore at one of my “play dates” with some of our closest friends.
On a side note, the month of Ramadan is here, and it is during this month that Muslims around the world fast from dawn till dusk. It is a way of connecting with the higher power and getting in touch with their inner spirituality. Fasting also helps remove harmful toxins from our body, and manage certain addictions from caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes or even drugs. If you are interested in knowing more, there is a wealth of info on the web. Just type in “Ramadan” and hopefully you will have enough info to help you.
Speaking of addictions lets talk a bit about Fatty Liver. It is a condition that occurs due to many reasons. Pregnancy, overweight and most commonly in people who have alcohol addiction. It can eventually lead to liver failure or worse cirrhosis which is scarring of liver. Symptoms include: Feeling very tired, loss of appetite, nausea. In case of cirrhosis symptoms include bleeding problems, build up of toxins, jaundice. Diagnosis can be done by a simple ultra sound of the upper right side of the stomach. If you feel you have ANY of these symptoms I urge you to consult your doctor. As the old saying goes “its better to be safe than sorry”.
