5 Years!


Ever since my daughter was born almost 5 years back, my life had changed to a great degree.

My daughter’s birth year and the year after was very difficult for me.

I didn’t know how I would have survived if I didn’t have the support of my family and have my daughter in my arms. 

It was a very dark period for me emotionally. It changed my priorities and the way I looked at my life. Everything that was dear to me lost its luster. I even abandoned my blog, the blog which I made and wrote with love. I loved writing but it had been difficult for me to find any motivation to do so for the past few years.

I never thought I would come at a point in my life where I’d lose all hope. 

For the past 4 years, I put everything on the shelf. Nothing mattered except my daughter. I didn’t have the time or energy for anything else.

I invested all my time and energy in raising my daughter.

I never thought it was possible to love someone this much. She’s my heart, my joy and my pride. 

She’s going to be 5 in November this year In Shaa Allah.

My Misha strengthened my heart and helped me overcome my depression. It took one day at a time and a lot of will power but I survived because of her and for her. She will always and always be my priority.

But Alhumdolillah life is good now. And it has been for the past 2 years.

And now that she’s 4 and tries to do everything herself, I find I’ve got some spare time on my hands. And it had me thinking that I should do something for myself now. I want to reawaken my love for writing. So I’ve decided to revive my blog and restore an old chapter of my life. Like earlier, I’m planning to write anything that piques my interest.

Writing used to calm me. To read what I’ve written always had this effect on me irrespective of the topic I’d written about. 

I don’t want this to be any kind of compulsion. I want to take this at a slow but steady pace, and take things one day at a time.

I want to have genuine followers and their support in this renewed endeavor of my life.

I’ve given a new look to my blog and still working on its design so some links might not work for now. Please bear with me.
