‘Sakina’: inner peace, serenity and tranquility;
is something we all crave, at one, if not many points of our lives.

About the blog..

I started this blog, wanting to share little bits & pieces from my life! To share positivity & growth through adventures, reflections, short stories, advice as well as much more, as well as incorporating my love for photography (all the while trying to try help & inspire those who read).

One of the main motivations behind my blog is to share things I love, have learnt or been inspired by.  In doing so, I hope to remind others (and my self at times) that they’re not alone in their feelings/experiences and help them to see the world and life in a different light. 

I’ve been passionate about the written word and all things artsy, ever since I was a child. For the longest period of time, I’ve wanted to create a platform that people could visit and take something they needed from. Whether it be a little bit of encouragement, a little story or poem to escape the chaos of daily life,  or even a reminder about what ones purpose.


About the blogger..

As a twenty-years-young hybrid, born to a British Pakistani mother and Nigerian father, my story began when I born in a hospital in Kuwait City. Childhood me, grew up in a delightfully quiet little town  in the English countryside, called Gloucester (U.K). Yup, I was a small town girl until I was 8ish-9. Then came the first big move to Sharjah, UAE (also commonly known for being the next door neighbour to, Dubai). Wherein I would spend the next 10 years of my life. Fast forwarding forward to the year 2016, you meet 19-years-young-me, the girl who never really wanted to grow up (girl version of Peter Pan basically) m a r r i e d ! Alhamdulilah (All thanks to Allah) ~

side note: (I’m also the eldest of 7 siblings, Alhamdulilah) 


And so, the marriage chapter begins, with me flying thousands of miles away from Sharjah, UAE, all the way to a beautiful town called Cardiff, in Wales, (to live with my husband). 

But I won’t bore you with any more details unless you’re still a little curious? Maybe you’d like me to do a little in depth blog post someday? Feel free to let me know in the comments below, and I just might write something up! ~

That being said, we all have but a number of days to live. In this little corner of the internet, I wanted to share a few days that have made up my life. In hope that even when I’m no longer among the living (though that may sound a little depressing..) you’ll still have some to look back on. That will hopefully inspire you to live life to the fullest, to reflect and to be of the grateful for all the little and big things, life has to offer ~

I appreciate you taking the time out to read all the way to the end,
I wish upon you nothing but peace ~

Stay hydrated,

Be The Change Youu Wish To See ~

  1. I am ecstatic to have found your little inspirational blog. I have always wanted to name any child that I had ‘Sakina’. I think it’s a beautiful name. (My husband doesn’t agree but that is another story hahah). My favourite nasheed is actually ‘sakina’ by Native Deen – don’t know if you have heard of it. I do look forward to reading more of your posts 🙂

    1. Looks like we’ve got a lot in common then 🙈 my pen name is actually Sakina but it’s not my real name. I love the name so incredibly much too because of its meaning! I mentioned to my hubby as well child name wise, that i love it too. I’m sorry to hear your hubby doesn’t share your love for the name, but who knows what the future lies ☺ he might change his mind later on. I have in-fact heard the nasheed ‘Sakina’ by Native Deen 🙂

      I have much to learn writing wise but I whole-heatedly appreciate the fact you took the time out to go through each post and leave behind a little of your sparkle that made me smile at first glance ~ though it may sound a little cliche, it’s honestly people like YOU that inspire me to keep going with my writing. So thank you, for being so wonderfully inspirational ~
