I remember exactly 3 years ago today, I had started a journey of the unknown — walking down unfamiliar paths; meeting new people, conversing to strangers with whom I shared the same interests; getting involved in online groups, and immersing myself in a world that helped me know God and know myself in all the adventures and misadventures of life. Looking back into what blogging has done for me, I can honestly say that I loved every easy and difficult part that came along with it. I loved the people I came to know and of course, I also loved every moment that I got to encourage and shed light on someone else's dark corners. And if it wasn't God who breathed life on my words, those words will just stay as words.
I admit that there were a lot of my life's inside stories in the span of three years that didn't make it into this blog which I sincerely hope I can write about someday. Even then, I want you to know first and foremost that God has been good. Life hasn't for the most part, but HE has remained my anchor in all those depressing times. It was those days of sadness that made me turn to Him and my blog more. And now that I'm on my third year into blogging, I wanna share a couple of things that I learned and thankfully unlearned along the way. Some of it may not directly be related to blogging per se, but it still helped me all throughout. I hope it does for you too!
We live in a fast-paced world; truly enough our ability to adapt to the changes around us are extraordinary like never before. When we are introduced to new technology for example, we all look forward to owning that new mobile phone everyone has been dying to get their hands on. Furthermore, we as human beings have learned all throughout these years that everything was made for our good. Interestingly enough — not every piece of technology, fashion, beauty and art pieces out there may be beneficial to us. We then have the choice to choose which and what we should welcome in our lives — and that includes design.
As you may all know, I have recently teamed up with fOOfOO slippers in bringing you a sense of uniqueness and elegance wherever you are. These bespoke slippers which are made from organic sheepskin and handcrafted by Portuguese artisans are so much more than just slippers. For you all to know more about the beginnings of fOOfOO, here's a little Q&A with its dedicated creators, Rob and Will.
Before you start reading, I just want to let you know that I'm writing this post without an idea of what it's going to be about. It sounds ridiculous but how do I start expressing my thoughts about this blog turning two today?! I honestly don't know how I have gotten this far with blogging but I'm aware that there have been backlogs the entire time. I wasn't able to write all the stuff I wanted to write etc. But the blog kept going, and more than that, YOU kept reading.
Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great day so far. Life has been steady for me the past week. Nothing much has happened. I have only been struggling to get 8 hours of sleep as I'm easily interrupted nowadays. Also, I and my sisters started to workout/exercise as well. We have been planning to do so months ago, but we always get too lazy to do it. I just hope that we'd be determined enough to get the hang of it and faithfully work on it.
Anyway, this post has got to be one of the exciting ones I'll be doing as it is one way to discover new blogs and be discovered by answering questions. I have been tagged by Abbie of abbiechic.com and here it is... The Blogger Tag
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough.
