The Blessing of Unemployment

A couple of moths ago, I was very frustrated when I became unemployed & couldn’t find a suitable job. I felt very active/hyper & wanted to do something in my life even if it was for just a couple of hours per day. I wanted to feel important not useless.

Would I say/do the same thing now?


I’ve realized that being unemployed is a blessing. For a pregnant woman in her 7th month it is. Everything is swollen in me, I can barely walk for 15 minutes straight. I can’t stand that long in the kitchen or anywhere else, I have to sit all the time, or lie down. People started noticing how swollen I’ve become. I started noticing that too :/ I wonder what will happen in the 8th or 9th month. i don’t think I’ll have the confidence to go out. Wallah I started hating how I look. I even can’t find decent clothes for eid!

I’m at the end of this beautiful journey & I really can’t wait to see my baby & hold him/her in my hands ā¤ all I want to do is stare at my baby & do nothing but play/feed/change & do other stuff with him/her. Screw my career. My whole life will be dedicated nshallah to this beautiful blessing from Allah.

P.S. All i’m doing these days is eat, lie down on the couch & watch TV shows/movies. Life hasn’t been better el7mdellah šŸ™‚
