Fresh starts…

Everyone waits for a new year, a new month or even a new week to start something new. I’ve done it so many times… I’ll wait until Monday and then I’ll start my workout routine…. I’ll wait until the new month and then I’ll start my new diet…. I’ll read more next month.

I need to stop doing that. Life needs to be lived in the now! It’s all about what’s happening now, in this moment.

So much is changing around us, so much has already changed. We lose precious time by delaying things. If we want something we need to get it now.

I know we’re tired and fed up… but we need to take those chances and those opportunities. It doesn’t matter what day of the week it is. It doesn’t matter what month we’re in. If we want it now, then we have to go and get it now!

So here’s to fresh starts on a Tuesday night!!

When reality hits..

Sometimes it’s better to just leave a dream as a dream. It hurts too much when you try to make something happen that is just not meant to be. It’s one of life’s most painful lessons and I guess everyone goes through it at one point or another.

The true test is how you come out the other side. Do you come out renewed, ready to take on the world again? Or do you come out broken, hopeless, unmotivated?

I’m allowing myself a few days…

A few days to mourn the loss of my dreams, allowing myself to grieve for what I lost out on. Allowing myself to understand that this isn’t the time for me and that one day it will come. Allowing myself to come to terms with what has happened and not blame myself for it.

I wasn’t wrong to dream… I wasn’t wrong to allow myself hope. Maybe I went about it the wrong way, but I wasn’t wrong.

What are your dreams?

The job hunt…

I guess it all started a week ago, I thought sod it I’m just going to do it. I’ll apply for a job abroad.

As the week went on I applied for more and more jobs and the pipe dream turned into a full blown dream. I started having some hope, that maybe this is my way out

The issue is, that I’m a very impatient person. I need results straight away. Instant gratification. And I’m not getting it at the moment. I’ve applied for so many positions and I’ve not had a response yet.

I let my self believe, dream and hope…

Welcome to my thoughts!

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re all ok! I’m saying everyone as if it’s there anyone apart from me reading this haha. But that’s okay.. this is a space for me to write about my life, my thoughts, my feelings and my ideas.

I never thought I would actually do this, and truth be told I was a bit scared. But the beauty of the internet is that you can put yourself out there and no one will really know who you are. Saying that I want this to be the realest me, so here goes nothing

I am an Asian British Muslim girl in her late twenties. I’m single and I’m sure all my Asian girls will understand the kind of scrutiny I am under from all the “Aunties”. I’ve spent my mid twenties searching for the elusive love of my life. He seems to be taking his time so now I’m going to follow my dreams instead

The first step I’ve taken is to apply for international jobs. I have always wanted to work in the Middle East but I’ve just not done it. Now is the time to see if I can. I’m not saying I’m actually going to do it, but I’ve taken the first step and I’ll see where it takes me!

So stick around and follow me on this journey!!
