The past few days have been rather… emotionally and physically chaotic? My health has been a bit meh and it warranted a trip down to good ol’ A&E. I’m alright, nothing serious. Waiting on a chat with a doc to get to the bottom of things, but I’m optimistic it’s nothing major. Anyway, my health… Continue reading Papa and I: This day last year [November]
Picking apart my life’s building blockls
Without meaning to, I have been digging life’s building blocks; relationships I held/hold, purpose, passions, behaviour, personality, and my way of thinking – questioning everything. Grief is draining, that’s a fact. But, there was more to the emptiness.
‘No aunty ji, no one wants to know what you think of Person X’s recent weight gain’
For a while now, something has been on my mind and I have wanted to address it, but never really sussed out how. I have tweeted it about it a few times, so maybe that’s the best way to start: Body image. What is it? According to Mental Health: “Body image’ is a term that can… Continue reading ‘No aunty ji, no one wants to know what you think of Person X’s recent weight gain’
Sometimes, certain dreams and wishes seem so impossible. You really want something, but it just seems so far, so unattainable. There are moments where you tell yourself to forget it and move on. But that's not fair. I genuinely believe in hope. I believe everyone has the chance and ability to make their dreams reality… Continue reading Only You
This has been one of the hardest weeks of my life. Period. Not that many of you might have noticed lol but yes, I have been sort of absent. It's crazy, because it feels like God has tested my limits to the absolute max this week and though it has been haywire; I have realised a few… Continue reading Still Here.
Live and Let Live
Hey guys! Now this post is based around something I’ve been thinking about for a while and I genuinely felt like saying/posting something about it because tbh I see way too much of it everywhere. This idea of judging. Judging someone because of their faith, beliefs or judging someone and the strength of their faith… Continue reading Live and Let Live
Make Time For What You Love
For anyone who knows me, I have always been into reading and writing. Since FOREVER. From a young age, I had to have my own books and I loved to write my own stories. However, as life has gotten busier… I have had less time to do those things I enjoy, like reading and writing…… Continue reading Make Time For What You Love
Up In The Clouds
Currently I am flying somewhere above Portugal, looking out a small window and...I'm left speechless. Genuinely speechless, with a huge smile on my face. Look at that view! It is absolutely beautiful... beautiful isn't a great enough word for it! It's like I'm floating on a bed of clouds with the sky changing colours, as… Continue reading Up In The Clouds
Have you ever stood in front of the mirror and thought to yourself... I wish I could change this, ah I wish I could change that? Oh we've all been there! We have all had moments where we've zoned in on our faces and bodies and wished it looked different... sometimes our skin's not looking… Continue reading Love Yourself.
The cover photo for this blog post are flowers. Why? Well, like flowers, us girls... we're all different, different but pretty and colourful in our own unique but no doubt beautiful way. Yes that may sound cheesy for some but I like to think it's true. All beautiful things usually have something to cover it,… Continue reading The Hijab
