March, oh March. It was mad real! Certainly one of my favourite months of the year because it’s my love, David’s birthday…but it was also such an uphill climb. I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people to experiences to pictures to items. Favourites only, because good vibes … Continue reading March Faves
Today, going forward, make your bed work for you. Whatever hardship, whatever obstacle, whatever doubt…make it work for you. Hold on to your Faith. May it be bigger than your fear. Do not limit God. A deep sense of belief in yourself is everything, & it absolutely can be cultivated. Not to mention, confidence looks … Continue reading You Are A Work Of Art
Lit, Lit, Lit!!! I’ve been 24 about 2 weeks now but ya girl is already feeling brand new. My birthday month could have been no better. I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. 🙂 I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people … Continue reading October Faves
I love it when I meet someone who reads and even more, loves my blog. My heart automatically breaks into a happy dance. Occasionally, I do come across one or two who presume, directly or allusively, that I am perfect. The truth is, I mess up a lot. I do. I am not by any … Continue reading It’s A Mess. It’s Beautiful.
It’s raining. I love the rain. Out here in these smart streets, they call me a pluviophile. I am a pluviophile. A pluviophile whose life is dealing a crash course on a number of lessons. I’m ultimately really grateful. Things could be worse. That, and there is hope tied to the process of sharpening. It’s … Continue reading A Reminder: When it gets difficult
Adulting is not easy… but you already know that. I’m at the quarter life crisis stage. From what I have read, it happens somewhere between your mid 20s and early 30s. My transition from university to being a working adult has been unsettling. Life just seems harder than it’s been; not in terms of challenges per … Continue reading Quarter Life Crisis
I have this pretty necklace with my name on it, in Arabic. I got it as a 19th birthday gift from one of my first friends in uni and immediately loved it! At the time though, there was a lot of building tension, with regard to national security. So much so, that I remember once … Continue reading Happy Is She Who Likes Herself
What do I know for sure? Other than this being the almost-title of my favourite book, it is a question that has recently lingered in my mind. More so, when I have found myself in a mental tag-of-war of sorts. Over the past few weeks, I have been reminded of several truths, primarily centered around … Continue reading You Are Not For Everyone and You Cannot Do Everything
One of the toughest situations I have had to deal with, and seek strength to get through, is disappointing myself. Ne-Yo and Cher LLoyd sang it perfectly: “it’s like falling down, and everyone’s watching.” The journey involves inevitable bumps. It just so happens that these are sometimes a result of your actions or lack thereof: … Continue reading Thriving Past Self-Disappointment
How often do you look back at it? Your journey, your life, your story? I have been here 22.8 years. That’s 272 months. Approximately: 1,185 weeks; 8,300 days; 497,952 hours. Mine, has been nothing short of a magnificent love story between God and I. So many transcendent moments that serve as reminders of just how much … Continue reading How Do You Learn To Love Yourself?
