Lately I have been reminiscing on some memories and one in particular really stood out to me; my 21st birthday. That day was truly special for me in so many ways. Let’s recap and relive this day today, for the sake of this blog post! On this specific day I had woken up to tons of messages from friends and family wishing me a happy birthday. … Continue reading My 21st Birthday!
I’m lacking inspiration. Inspiration to create, to write, to grow, to succeed. I’ve lost the spark in my eye, the smile that warms the hearts of many, the voice that inspires, the ears that listen intently, the mindset to do, and the heart to pursue.

As soon as a new year befalls us, everyone, including I, start thinking … Continue reading Hello 2016
Thursday November 19th – Life is not always fine and dandy. You have the good days, and the not so good days. Both are inevitable. For me today was one of those not so good days. You see, I am quite close to completing school. I have about a year left of my program. A year seems pretty far away but when you’re me, who … Continue reading Just Another Day
You are married to this dunya (life). “Until death do us apart”…these vows that you have said to him remain forever ingrained until the day comes. He has promised you many opportunities, happiness, heartbreak, success, gifts, jobs, you name it. So how could you not be attached to something like this? Especially when he promises you the world. We are so caught up in life. We … Continue reading Til’ death do us apart…
