Hello! I hope you found your way here okay, it’s freezing outside init?
Well, welcome (back!) to my blog – It really has been a while! I have dusted the cobwebs off this blog and have given it a new spring clean for I have returned! I have come back to reignite my hobby of writing once more!
I have come realised recently, that I have truly missed the therapeutic release that comes with writing creatively and being able to express myself freely online. I have missed being able to create stories using my weird (and wonderful!) imagination; to express my emotions about situations that I have been in whether it was a joyous or a difficult event; and to have a space where I can freely reflect on how my life has been, how my life is now and how my life is going to be and what lessons can I learn from my experiences.
I used to write back in 2013 and I even had a separate blog called ’That Mad Muslimah’ until my anonymity was compromised by a fellow student at University and I had to take the blog down. I was suffering from depression and the people from the Muslim community started to mock and laugh at what I had written about when the news spread about my identity. I had two choices at this point; to fight them or to walk away. Given that I was so far in the pit of depression I decided to delete the blog and go into hiding – I just need to get better. After I had recovered from the depression and made some massive lifestyle changes, life with all its beauty, just got in the way again. This is why I created this blog to try and kick-start my passion once again but life decided that it wasn’t a priority and pushed it to one side. So, I have taken the opportunity to use Blogging 101 in 2015 to start again, a new leaf as it were.
So that is my life narrative so far! I really hope that I carry on writing in the 2015 and I hope you’ll join me on this adventure to.
To the new readers that have joined please let me introduce myself – I am an individual who wishes to reignite my passion for writing and to reflect and learn about my life which others can benefit from to. I want to use as platform to raise awareness about issues that are passionate about and where I can educate people who don’t know about certain topics such as mental health stigma. This is just a rough idea of what this blog is going to be about.
And that’s it really! My goal is like I said before to right throughout 2015 and I really do have that you will join me throughout this adventure don’t forget, below anti-and click the like button (thing you have to if you want to doe! :P)
