    Exactly a year ago, in August 2018, when everything was falling apart, I felt I had only two choices. Give up and return to my home city or give up and stay in my new city. Both choices involved giving up and there didn't seem to be a third choice, and what's more - neither choice made any sense. 
There seemed to be less and less to return to home to and yet there seemed to be very little reason to stay. 
I was so caught up on these two different ways of 'giving up' that I didn't notice the third option that didn't involve giving up at all. It involved creating a brand new plan and making brand new decisions. These decisions were not easy. They involved letting go of people, letting new people in, taking on out of my depth courses, making financial investments, being without things I was used to having, learning what it means to own a business, learning what it means to be me. 
August 2018 was also the month that I decided to wear my hair natural once and for all - which today I think is a symbol of me letting go of all that I had been in the past and just being me. 
Now it's August 2019, and exactly a year has passed from the day I decided to devise my Plan B and I can see now that I am a product of all the decisions I made back when it wasn't so easy to see a way out. So today I am just celebrating this and thanking the person I was a year ago for the person I am today. I intend to keep making decisions my future self will be glad for.

What do you need to do so that the future you can thank you for it?

    My love for suits make me go crazy...Few years back I use to think that carrying them in my work place will not let me be focused and I have to take care of my dupatta every now and than..But now I realized there is no other outfit  as comfortable as  cotton suit and Dupatta.I am absolutely loving this so comfortable Chikankari suit I recently bought from my visit to Lucknow from Gabadjhala Market which is famous for shopping and food (Next time you visit Lucknow do visit this market too) .I am always a low-key person when it comes to spending on clothes so let me brief you my look book and you will be shocked to know that how less I spent to achieving this look 😜
Lucknow Chikankari suit - From Lucknow's Gadbadjhala market  500 rs (Yes you read that right P.S bargaining is in my Gens 😁)
Duppata -  From Lajpat Nagar Central Market 150 rs ( 😍😍)
Earrings - From Janpath Market bought 5 years back so forgot the price (50-100 not more than that for sure)
♥️🧿

    🎵🎶
Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines in my face gettin' clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way?
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

I know, nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life's in books' written pages
Lived and learned from fools and from sages
You know it's true
All the things you do
Come back to you

Sing with me
Sing for the year
Sing for the laughter n' sing for the tear
Sing with me
If it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

    Magic is all around you!! It's your choice to see it or not.
But Ohhh if you do and you add some appreciation & gratitude to the mix, all things wonderful will keep on coming. 
It's a simple recipe for happiness, if you allow it and apply it.

    Be a ray of sunshine ☀️ you never know who needs it. It takes $0.00 to be a nice human 🙍🏽‍♀️🙎🏼‍♂️ Tag someone who makes you feel like this

    ‘Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear’ {2:286} 
I smile because of this verse. 
Have you ever had separation anxiety because you miss someone yet you smile? 
Have you ever had your heart ache because you seen the person you love with someone else, yet you smile?
Have you ever felt so weak because you’re financially struggling, yet you smile?
Have you ever felt like having a mental breakdown because you lost your job, yet smile?
Have you ever felt like giving up because you failed a subject, yet you smile?
Have you ever been so nervous to be put in a difficult or awkward or uncomfortable position yet you smile? 
Has your mind asked you “why me” a hundred times a day yet you smile? 
Have you ever felt so traumatised because you have been physically, sexually or emotionally abused yet you smile? 
Have you ever had your world fall apart because you lost someone yet you smile? Have you ever felt like becoming a criminal because you dislike someone so much, yet you smile? 
Have you ever wanted to pull your hair and scream because of hormonal changes yet you smile?
And in the end you seem like the greatest psycho for smiling while being under so much pressure and emotional chaos? You’re not a psycho you’re just a beautiful strong human being who believes in the ability of overcoming all obstacles. 
Continue to smile, we shouldn’t only smile when things are smooth but also when things are rough because our creator knows we are strong enough to get through what we have been put into and that thought alone should make us have the biggest smile. -

    He is 3hours old here,I was still in shock and kinda numb from the anesthesia, I always pictured how my delivery story would be but I was not prepared of how this little being would look like. He was amazing in all manners n I never knew you could love someone more than yourself (it’s cliche but so true ) anyway fast forward we are grown now so I thought I should leave this one here.  #youngmumsrock#’motherhood#hoursoldbaby#youngmums#teenmoms#begrateful#itsallaboutGod#muminuniversity#baby 🥰🥰.

    We tend to believe in everything except ourselves. Let’s change that.
