I Resigned To Spark More Joy In My Life

No, I don’t watch Marie Kondo but I support the concept of decluttering and removing the things that don’t bring you joy anymore. This could be some old friends collecting dust, your job that makes you work 7 days a week or even a rib or two to get that waistline snatched (I am joking, we promote healthy body images on this blog)

Eid ul-Fitr 2019

Today people everywhere are celebrating the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan. One of the pillars of Islam is the observation of this month, so yes we celebrate and this includes great food and time with your closest people. But I would also like to add that you should also celebrate yourself, and the fact that you were able to push beyond your mind and achieve the smallest to the greatest moments. Read More

We Are All Connected

The first time I heard Slow Up by Jacob Banks, of his debut album Village, I had goosebumps and I may have had a tear slowly roll down my right cheek. It is thought-provoking and it brings up all of these memories and emotions of people that you connect with and makes you want to just call them up.

26: Being An Extraordinary Mess

It was my birthday yesterday, I am officially 26 everybody and to be honest this is the first birthday where I feel different. It’s like I’ve unlocked something inside me in the past year and now, although I don’t know where I am going, I know who I am or at least I am owning who I am.

Most of the time it’s more of self-reflection, but I recognise that people are connecting to it so we’re doing more of it. Read More

25.4: Noise

“We live in a society where the “nothing” (shopping, watching TV) has become a “something” and the “something” (relaxing, meditating, sharing) has become a void in need of being filled.” – Frank Barat, On Palestine

Photo Diary: Cyclone Sagar

Cyclone Sagar (May 16, 2018 – May 21, 2018) is the strongest ever recorded cyclone to hit Somalia. Last week I had a work trip to some of the worst hit villages and the families that it devastated. I was gonna write a blog post on the people I met and the conversations we had but I don’t think that I’ve actually processed it enough, so I decided to put together some photos to show you guys what’s going on through my eyes.  Read More

Just Be You.

When I look inward as to who I am and what I stand for, I’ve always been met with a sense of peace, an anchor. I guess I’m blessed that I had parents that never imposed their ideas or identities on me, but rather just let me learn my way through life. Read More
