Here, I write on issues that affect us around the world focussing on solutions and raising global consciousness. I also explore social and cultural issues of interest to me, which I believe need to be spoken about openly in order for change to come.
I believe life is an ever-changing journey of growth and self-betterment. Here you will find posts and reviews on things I love or have really enjoyed, posts on and interviews with people that inspire me to become better, as well as things I have come across that have opened my eyes even further or encouraged me to ask questions.
As well as being a passionate writer and journalist, I am also a passionate artist. It is one of the places where I feel the most peace. Expect to find posts here on the stories behind my own artistic creations as well as reviews on the products I use to create my work.

My heart is so heavy today. Waves keep building in my chest and crashing down through my eyes as tears. I can't seem to focus on work or anything else right now. Although I am physically in Mauritius, my mind is with Manchester and my heart is there too. How could...read more
A simple act of kindness can go a long way. But similarly, a harsh word or an insult can go even further, maybe even haunting someone until their last day. I'm currently watching Thirteen Reasons Why: a Netflix drama about a 17 year-old girl who committed suicide. And...read more
Assalaamualaikum Syria. I don't know what to say. How are you... maybe? It seems so feeble, my attempt to show you I care. I've heard you haven't been well; worse than not well in fact - I heard it's been like hell. You're caught like a pawn in a game of death... in a...read more
They say be careful what you wish for. I say, be careful what you pray for. I am learning every single day the enormity of the love that God has for me. But when I tell you it is through struggle and fear and gut wrenching inner turmoil that His love presents itself,...read more
I think it hit me the other day when I was speaking to my elder sister on Facetime and she handed the phone to my eldest nephew, her son. In the 6 months that I’ve been in Mauritius and haven’t seen my family in person, he has grown. Not just grown, but...read more
I love spending time alone. I always have; ever since being a small curly-haired little girl drawing pictures of her daddy in coloured crayons to today, being a 28-year-old woman (hair more of a frizzy, humidified mess) who desperately yearns for just a few stolen...read more
Just a few days ago I was feeling crap. Like really, totally, utterly crap – a way I hadn’t felt in quite a long time. Times like this are quite rare for me now, especially since my life took a whole new turn and I found God and the path I had yearned for, maybe even...read more
Bringing life into this world is an experience that I can barely even put into words. Even now, when I think of the two times I have been blessed enough to grow life inside me and allow it to pass through me into this life, I cannot help but allow the emotions to...read more
So here we are again. On the first day of a whole new year. At the beginning of 2016, I began something that I hadn’t done in years: I started keeping a journal again. Yesterday, on the final day of 2016, I looked back over the words and emotions that had spilled...read more
I wrote this 4 years ago, right at the end of 2012 and it still seems so relevant. It was on my old blog, so thought it only appropriate to bring it over to this one. Enjoy. Another year. Another 365 days. Gone. Gone again in the blink of an eye and a flick of the...read more
Here I am, sitting on a park bench in the country that is my new home. The rustling of the trees, the hypnotic crashing sounds of the waterfall just behind me along with the sweetest birdsong, sends shivers down my spine: I feel peace. True peace. I think of my life...read more
…aaaand, exhale. It’s been one of those days – or one of those weeks, really – where I am absolutely exhausted from running around after my 2 and a half-year-old. I just don’t understand where he gets the energy from; to run around causing havoc and on the opposite...read more
To find your way, you must first lose your way. And when I tell you I was lost, I was so, so lost. You see, they brought me up telling me I was this religion and this is how we do things. They told me not to do this and not to do that, and to be ever fearful. They...read more
Hi, I’m Sabah – a twenty-something British Asian writer, artist and journalist, who believes deeply in the saying
“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?
