I’m not very good at talking about myself but …here it goes :). I guess I’ll start with the basics. I’m a 30 something stay at home mom of 2 rambunctious boys, Maalik & Jibreel – and one new addition – my little Sufian. I’ve been married for over 7 years. I went to Rutgers for undergrad (go Scarlet Knights! :P) and NJIT for grad. I love things that are aesthetically pleasing and make my senses happy – good food, good music…anything beautiful and awe inspiring. I enjoy a good book, appreciate a good movie, and love a good laugh :). I love to travel and experience new places, although I don’t get to do it nearly as often as I’d like. My spirit, my soul, and my humanity are all things I cherish, and work on – although, like everything else, there are days where I search (hard) for these connections – and struggle to find it, and days where their presence is truer than anything else in my existence. It’s part of my personal struggle and my life’s journey…
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for ages now. In my quest to be a half decent wife and mother, I feel like I’ve lost myself a bit. Everything outside those roles just seem like a bit of a blur. I just don’t give most other things too much thought. BUT, I’d like to change that. So this is my attempt at self-reflection and rediscovery – finding out who I am as a whole person, and who I would like to be.
With regard to theme, there really isn’t one, other than me of course ;). And be forewarned, between all the brain cells I’ve lost in my last 3 pregnancies and all the sleepless nights, I’m not sure I can do “deep” and “thoughtful”, BUT I’m hoping to surprise myself on occasion. Ultimately, I hope it’s fun for me, and for anyone gracious enough to give it a read.
Thanks for listening (I feel like I’m in therapy!)
