Welcome to my blog – brought to you by an 18-year old Egyptian girl who happens to love smiling, dreaming and expressing her thoughts and feelings through words.

My passion for reading and writing started when I was in primary school and continued to evolve over the years; which is why the idea of blogging really appealed to me. I created this blog in 2017 and posted regularly for just over a year till 2018. However, life has this way of thrusting things in your face to an extent that forces you to let your hobbies take a back-seat; that’s what happened with me.

Life never stops being busy, so what brought me back? Well, it’s simply my strong desire to return to the blogging world and once again do something I truly enjoy.

When I first started this blog, in 2017, I kept doubting myself and my decision. I was full of questions and feared the unknown. Will I succeed as a blogger? Will readers enjoy my content? Was this a silly idea? Too. Many. Questions.

Looking back, I’m happy that I decided to go on despite my doubts. Blogging turned out to be something I love and something I truly enjoy, making it one of the highlights of my life. If I hadn’t taken that risk and stepped out of my comfort zone, I would have never gained this enjoyable experience. If we’re too scared to get out of our comfort zones and take that leap…we’ll miss opportunities that can change our lives. “If not now, then when?” Just Do It (Thanks Nike).

Hope you enjoy reading my content!
