Happy 20th Birthday to my not-so-baby-but-still-a-baby sister! Thanks for being my best friend, confidante, stylist and adventure buddy. I can't believe how quickly and how much you've grown up. I love all of our memories and look forward to making a ton more. Hope you had a great birthday and I pray Allah grants all your wishes. 👯🎊🎉🎂
I have a tray of biryani and a box of Krispy Kreme donuts in my kitchen that I am not supposed to eat.
I just realized that I go back to school in less than a month and I'm not mentally prepared yet.
After fixing my sleep schedule, one night of staying up late has me back to waking up at 2 pm.
I can't find a date to take my driving test because they're all booked, so looks like I won't be able to drive until like next summer.
In short, lowkey having a midsummer crisis right now. But it's okay because my lipstick color finally matched my kurti. It's all about perspective guys.
It's true when they say you become more comfortable in your own skin as you get older. I struggled with confidence pretty much my entire life. Growing up in a desi household is not easy, brown parents keep it real..sometimes too real lol. I was always hesistant to be myself around everyone. Always tried to be the girl everyone else wanted me to be. The perfect daughter, sister, friend, wife, daughter in law. I read somewhere that the person you choose to spend your life with will be the most important life decision you will make. I was fortunate enough to have a partner that built up my confidence and helped me become the woman I am today. But it was only when I became a mother that something inside of me sparked. I stopped trying to constantly please others and do what I thought I was supposed to be doing. I stopped taking crap from everyone around me, learned to stand up for myself and most importantly be confident in myself and my actions. I wanted to be my best self, for my son. There is so much more I want to say but for now I just wanted to tell all the young girls out there that are like the old me...just be yourself. Stop worrying about what others want, start putting yourself first. No one in the world is like you, you ARE good enough. You deserve to be comfortable in your own skin, flaws and all. Your flaws are what make you unique. Don't let others try to bring you down. Self confidence can be your biggest weapon against all the negative people on your life. Don't wait until your 30s to become the woman you always wanted to be, start now. 💕
