Assalamu aleikum bloggers,
For the longest time, I have fought a battle of lifestyle which is quitting my job or keeping it. And these highlighted posts along with hints of this struggle in all my writings or novels will vouch for that struggle I faced.
My spirituality has considerably increased over the last five years alhamdullilah and I have asked Allah to make me happy with my decision to quit whenever I decide to do it.
Well, guess what. It has been a little over a month now and I quit my prized job to homeschool , pursue my writing career I started in 2013, and maybe continue Accounting from home. Many companies are now starting to have accounting positions from home now and this is a sign that I can still have a career at home insha’Allah. Please keep me in your duas, amiin.
I’m also happy to say that I don’t regret walking away from a good source of income outside the home because my heart is in the right place and Allah is making me happy about that decision like I asked him masha’Allah. I’m also stress free and don’t feel like I have to answer to a boss. I’m my own boss now, lol!
I mean the stress dealing with work and a toddler, the current state of Muslims worldwide, and the school shootings all hastened that decision to quit for me. Many Muslims like me feel like the zone of comfort has been breached and judgements plague us like clockwise. May Allah protect us and guide us, amiin.
What do you think? Did I make the right decision to be a stay home mom and pursue other work opportunities from home? Please do let me know haha! 🙂
P.S. The content of Freedom Fighter has nothing to do with this post. Just thought the cover would depict my state of mind.
Jazak’Allah khair for reading,
