Suede Jacket and Street Shoes

So my mom always forwards me funny videos and texts – its sort of her thing. It is usually a health related topic, or some new recipe, but sometimes it is just a funny story or a life lesson. Here was today’s story which definitely made me chuckle. I don’t have a clue if its a true story, btw, actually I’m pretty sure it isn’t. Hope you enjoy!

When Mahathma Gandhi was studying law at the University College, London, a professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely.

One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room when Ghandi  came along with his tray & sat next to the professor.

The professor said,
“Mr Ghandi, you do not understand, a pig & a bird do not sit together to eat.”

Ghandji looked at him as a parent would a rude child & calmly replied,
“You do not worry professor. I’ll fly away,”
and he went and sat at another table.

Mr. Peters,  reddened with rage, decided to take revenge.

The next day in Class he posed the following question:
“Mr. Ghandi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom & another bag with money, which one would you take ?”

Without hesitating, Ghandi responded, “The one with the money, of course.”

Mr. Peters , smiling sarcastically said,
“I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom.”

Mahathma Gandhi  shrugged & responded, “Each one takes what he doesn’t have.”

Mr. Peters, by this time was fit to be tied. So great was his anger that he wrote on Mahathma Ghandi’s exam sheet the word “IDIOT”
and gave it to Ghandi

Ghandi took the exam sheet & sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.

A  few  minutes later, Mahathma Ghandhi got up, went to the professor & told him in a dignified polite tone,

“Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me a grade.”

In other news, pregnancy is going well so far, not much time left but I’m getting bigger every day. I have been lucky to not have any major issues this trimester, and besides getting no sleep  I really have no complaints. Just ready to meet the little babe finally! This time will be so different for me, as my career life has completely changed – I won’t have to go straight back to work and I will have a lot more time to spend with her than I did with Adam. I remember crying every day for the first week at work when I had to leave Adam at daycare at just three months old. After that I was just miserable at work, but I eventually got used to the routine so it wasn’t unbearable after a while. It was then I started this blog and at the time, I had no idea this lifestyle was even possible. Something just made me do it! It just reinforces my belief that where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Thanks for visiting as always! xx

First time back to my hometown to see my parents since Thanksgiving 2019. The kids have been so excited to see their Nanababa and Nano! The last video is what I was really missing tho…
My new favorite place in the house is definitely the sitting room off my bedroom. (See the before in my Reels) I worked with @thehavenly to turn this into my dream space. Now what used to be a pass through, is where I love to sit down after a shower and put on lotion or comb my hair, or even just curl up and read a book or listen to a guided meditation. Just a cozy and pretty space that feels intentional 💕 #havenlyambassador #interiordesign
I glow ‘cause I know what my worth is…who can name that song?? (every mom probably knows)
Thanks for all the love on my last post ❤️ I’m nursing a vulnerability hangover because I am actually a pretty private person (believe it or not) but every time I do get in my feelings and share it I end up connecting with so many of you and that makes it worth it. I know I am inspiring women to be unapologetic and to live their truth by doing so myself. That’s not a flex, enough of you dm me on the daily for me to say it with confidence. So with that- Lets go 2022! Hope this year keeps you feeling rested, hydrated, and living your best life! Also sorry and yes I’m definitely bothered by that rug flipped over in the back
Life is weird. For 2022 I’m thinking about how much I’ve personally grown. From this 21 year old girl getting married to someone I barely knew way too fast (my first marriage- also divorced within a year). That experience made me learn so much about standing up for what I wanted. Then for many years I thought I knew who I was, and soon I realized that wasn’t it either. I evolved. I struggled with my faith, particularly in 2020 when I felt attacked for my non mainstream views about Islam - interfaith marriage, LGBTQ, etc. Because of that, I lost a lot of supporters and tbh- sadly lost some friends. But I also figured out, with the sage advice from papa Shah, that there are as many opinions in the world as there are people - so me trying to change peoples opinions was pretty futile. Rather than bearing hostility to those who don’t think like me, I realized I should have empathy, and give people room to grow and learn. So I can say with sincerity that I’m finally good - with life and God and everything - and I’m proud of baby girl in this pic ❤️ Cheers to more growth and happiness next year!
You’re the best, I don’t care what everyone else says ❤️
