My own Feelings About Ramadan Through the Ages With each year that passes, for me, Ramadan seems to bring a new set of thoughts and feelings. (For those that don’t know much about Ramadan, check out my post ‘Why I Fast’.) I remember being so excited...read more
So something amazing happened recently. I got the chance to go out in the evening ALONE. No girl child crying because she wanted to suckle at my boob and no boy child tugging me in a million different directions. For the first time in over 16 months, I finally...read more
As a child of a working-class immigrant family who arrived in the UK from Pakistan in the 1970’s, up until the point that I moved to Mauritius I never felt that I didn’t belong. Although I do remember hearing racist terms and jokes being thrown around the playground...read more
I love coming across inspiring people living conscious, mindful lives which is why upon crossing paths with Béa Chan who runs the slow-travel and slow-living blog Mademoiselle Nomad, I knew I had to meet her for an interview. After quickly establishing a friendship in...read more
You don't have to look like everyone else. You don't have to sound like everyone else. You don't have to buy what everyone else is buying or go where everyone else is going for the perfect shot for the 'gram. You don't have to think like everyone else. You don't have...read more
How many times do we have to scream that black lives matter before the world begins to listen? It is way too often that I see the news of another black man having been shot dead at the hands of white police officers in America and quite frankly, I am sick of...read more
I’ve been planning to write about my hypnobirthing experience for a while now (my daughter is now 15 months old after all!) but it just hasn’t happened – sorry about that! A couple of weeks ago, I read the Unmumsy Mum’s account of her hypnobirthing experience with...read more
It sounds so simple doesn't it? "Be who you truly are". But being who you truly are - although the answer to life's most persistently asked questions - is quite possibly one of the most difficult things to do. It means unlearning and unconditioning yourself from every...read more
It was around March or April time last year (2017) when I was home alone with the baby who was sleeping soundly in her baby rocking chair, when while flicking through YouTube a suggested TED Talk popped up titled ‘Dying to be me!’. Immediately it caught my attention...read more
Coming from a background of working in music and always being around it or being immersed in it, just the other day - in a rare 30 minutes I got to myself with my earphones in with music on whilst beginning a new mandala drawing - I was reminded just how...read more
Women really are fascinating creatures aren’t they? I guess I’ve only realised this and the true strength and power of women since growing up and becoming one. We are soft enough to be nurturing mothers, yet strong enough to move mountains; we are empathetic enough to...read more
So I'm standing here staring at this waterfall. The water gushes down, a cloud-like continuous foam. It is roaring; it's thirst has been quenched from the recent rain fall and it wants the world to know. It's sounds mixed with the wind rustling...read more
I love women. Maybe not in the same way as a red-blooded twenty-two year old male, but I really do. Growing up I guess I didn’t really fully appreciate being a girl. After all, I was born a Pakistani, Muslim female in twentieth century Britain into a working...read more
“be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This conscious blog is my personal little corner of the Internet in which I share my journey of self-discovery, spirituality and consciousness through exploring the universe that lies both outside and within us all.
I write about my own life and experiences, social problems and global issues as well as things that make life more beautiful for me – such as art, music and so much more.
So basically, this is me and my varied blog – striving every single day to become the change that I wish to see to help make our world a brighter, happier and safer place for us all. Join me?
