Day 6: Amina

‘We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.


– Joseph Campbell’


Rediscovering Amina.

I found myself. I stopped living in the shadows of all my other responsibilities and I truly let go. I find that sometimes as a mother, you often forget to be your own person and this year for me was all about rediscovering myself.


It was the most amazing journey of self discovery – me being responsible for just me and nothing else. As much as I love my family – I genuinely am glad I got to go on a couple of holidays without them and just do the things I used to love doing.



This year I experienced the biggest test of my faith EVER!!! I stopped praying, stopped believing. I questioned His existence… then one day, I woke up and realized all the proof I needed about God had been staring at me right in the face all along. To be blessed with the most amazing human being – one you’ve watched grow from literally nothing!!! At that moment, everything made sense. I’m still not where I want to be but I’m done asking questions. Now, I’m just grateful for everything.



I’m truly grateful for the amazing friends I have in my life – some days I feel like we’re all so far away from each other (which is our reality) but despite the distance, I feel truly blessed.


2017 has been amazing, everything seemed to fall into place at the right moment.


2018 truly feels like it’s going to be another amazing year, and like C JoyBell said I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going and I have trained myself to love it… because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and begin our flight.


As we fly, we still may not know where we are going to; but the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings.
