"Logging on to The Single Mom Movement website was an unintentional click but when I read the website, I had goosebumps; as how can someone actually make my frustration, my pain as her mission in life. And then, I did the most rewarding and life transformation favour to myself by connecting with you, with TSMM.
Living in Pakistan as a divorcee with two sons itself was a big challenge. Though I was having a successful career but the divorce had left scars on my soul. Every time somebody would pass an irresponsible comment to my single mom status, my scars would start bleeding. They would hurt even more when I was looked upon with sympathy... sympathy for a woman whose husband has abandoned her not because she was incapable but because of his own insecurities and failures. I wouldnt admit but deep down I was ashamed of the fact that I was given divorce and my kids will now be nurturing as a broken family.
And then a MIRACLE happened... Jessica had set up a Skype call with me, and this one call was the MIRACLE, it was like an Energy Explosion and a Celebration of myself. It left behind a rebirth of a Newer Me.
Just 20 minutes into the call and Jessica gave me the comfort of believing that I am good enough and not a scar. I shared every single bit of the causes of my divorce, I gave every single detail to Jessica ... from the daily drama to the physical abuse. Jessica encouraged me for my kids and also focused on letting me believe that I should not ashamed of myself. The ugly scars on my soul do not define me but expose the ugliness of that man and I should not hold myself responsible for his indecency.
A NEW, never before energy sparked my existence; I felt so relieved that I have someone to listen to me, who understands my pain, who knows how painful the reality pinches and yet believed in me and my dreams.
From that very call... my life started to transform. I stood up and accepted myself and valued my dreams. I understood that if I have to save my kids and nurture them into good human beings, the first & foremost thing needed is to celebrate my own existence, not be ashamed of how that one man treated me, instead look forward as what life has in store for me.
Today, I'm proud to share that not only I got my sons moved out of Pakistan and settle in Dubai, and I made successful moves in my career. I stand before the world as a Global Business Consultant for a US multinational, as an author of "Staple From The Deep", as a Life Coach for women in general but Single Moms in particular to elevate them to higher professional grades, as an Entrepreneur in UAE of my own company, Perfectibilist International and above all as a Mother of two incredible sons who take pride in the conviction of their mom to use every ounce of her strength for doing things that she believes in.
And for all this, I thank you Jessica and will always be indebted to The Single Mom Movement who had such strong energy vibes that transformed my life from thousands of miles of land and ocean that lie between us geographically.
Thank you for believing in me. Thank You for your support . Thank You for tearing apart the shell of self-ashamed existence and bringing out the REAL me. Thank You for unleashing my productivity and believing in my dreams .. sometimes you believed in my dreams more than I ever did 🙂
Cheers to this immaculate journey of transformation,
Cheers to the rebirth of a woman whose vision toward her dreams were blurred by her own imaginary self -ashamed existence."
