‘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 ~
Be The Change Youu Wish To See ~
