Tell me a little bit about a real life scenarios in a sense where you know, where you felt yourself feeling hopeless or helpless, you feel like, there's too much for me, I can't handle it. And then how you overcame that obstacle.
Many of those and the love for all of us because this is a test of life, so we're constantly basically, but one of my major ones was when I was pregnant with my fourth pregnancy, and it's actually my third child, the fourth, fourth pregnancy. And when I found out I was pregnant, I was just like soprano law. And at that time, I was overwhelmed. Because it was four pregnancies of five years. And we had just in I worked full time, I had my other two kids, and I just had a business turon there's just so many things happening. And when I found out I was pregnant, I was just like, Oh, my God, what am I going to do? How can I go and continue working on a PhD, working full time and
do this? And maybe about two weeks, I sat there and I felt sorry for myself, like most of us do it. I felt a little bit depressed, and I cried, and you know, the normal, and then I slapped myself in the face and stuff like that. Yeah, the problems. It's not it's not a problem. It's a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. It's a blessing Mashallah, everything that happens is a blessing. And we need to see it that way. But what now this has happened, what are you going to do? That's it? Or what's the solution? Here? Is this situation? What is the solution? And so I took myself from that position and found solutions instead of the one. I'm going to need a nanny, I'm going to need this. I'm going
to need a maid, I'm going to need help. How can I get that? Oh, you technically, a lot of times we think, okay, we need help, but we can't afford it. Or I need to do something different to be able to afford it. I realized I forgot a master's degree. I interpreted my own business, I need to run it this way I need to. And I started to do what that was it, I started to realize it. And so Pamela, I was seven months pregnant. When I got my first nanny, I had her with me. Through the pregnancy, I was running my own business. I mean, what I found is what I achieved on the left, because I was that's what I wanted, you know, instead of crying and being sad and depressed and changed my whole
lifestyle, I decided how can I attack this from a different perspective and make it happen and be happy with it. And so when my son was born martial, I would hold him ISIS upon us, you are a blessing, because you made me do things I could have never done. If you hadn't been pregnant, he kind of pushed me out of my box and forced me to open up the business to get it down into Outlook, life in a total different way. And had I not been pregnant, I wouldn't have probably done that I would have been in that comfortable state of life, where now I'm like, you have to be uncomfortable to be comfortable. You cannot either you're going to be comfortable in the beginning of your life
and become uncomfortable later. Like most families and most of our elders are or you're going to be uncomfortable now by pushing yourself as sacrificing and later you will be comfortable inshallah. There's only two ways
