Before you get out there and try to be yourself, it’s very important to understand the person you are. Knowing that is called being Self Aware. Self Awareness means understanding your potential, knowing your values, accepting your flaws, enhancing your strengths and empowering the best version of yourself. All this comes from really thinking (see: meditating) about yourself.
A lot of times things that happen will feel like they’re the end of the world. If you ask yourself why you feel like that, many times your answer will be: because people made you think like that.
Bad grade? End of the world. Gap year? End of the world. Rejected rishta? End of the world. Messed up a stage performance may be? End of the world. And even a bad haircut? End of the world. All because of what people say.
See, the start of the new year really depends on how you end this one. The best part of the new year is, you get to decide how you plan to live it and how you plan to make it better than the last one for yourself. Remember: Your life is YOURS, and you get to decide how you want to feel about it and happiness really does come from within. So let's talk about how you can start the new year without carrying the unnecessary baggage from 2017 and start fresh!

I lost my father to cancer when I was 17 years old. In his lifetime, I learned a lot from him through his faith, and his love. Even though, I have come along way since his demise, he seems to be at the bottom of every heartache I feel.
Over time, societal expectations of how women should behave have embedded themselves so deeply into our lives that we often fail to see their oppressive and overwhelming influence. These expectations attempt to fit every woman into one small box of what is considered acceptable and desirable, and inculcate into our minds damaging gender norms that inhibit personal development.
I was casually scrolling through Twitter when I first read about Ayesha Gulalai's sexual harassment accusation against Imran Khan. My first reaction was of disbelief followed by distress as I saw the trajectory of public opinion regarding the matter.
Im not going to beat about the bush, and get straight to the point here about something I've been meaning to share!
So I've recently been getting wayyyyy too many questions related to blogging. My email and DM is literally full of questions. Here's some insight on how I blog.
