It was this realization and my family's constant encouragement, which made me spring back to life and reach where I am today.
And as I now say #HaveHeartWillLive. Today, I am pursuing everything that is close to my heart and believe in myself totally
Growing up , my father used to always explain the importance of failure in success. I never believed him, how can failing in life be a positive process!? - as years went by and I witnessed different scenarios in life it made me understand the importance of failure and the fact that there is no shame in failure. When I was in London, I once got rejected for what could be my dream job, a football news presenter. It made me feel low and dejected for a long time. Two years later I'm now in Dubai working as a Publicist and going back to the whole episode it made me think that it was the failure of rejection which motivated me to do better than what I was doing. We are human and are afraid of failure , it's natural but my only advice would be to "wear your failure like a badge of glory, and you'll remember it during your success." . . . . . . .

Thanking this initiative to inspire many through sharing... @saysalaamlife ... Here's my story of crumbling & collapsing to be rebirthed as a star to light up many lives by sharing... If i can do it .. so can you.
When my heart broke into a million pieces on finding my boyfriend & my best friend cheating on me & each shard instead of falling apart chose to embed itself in my skin on its way to wounding my soul....I SOBBED WHY ME..?? When I was jilted almost at the altar (with, just can't go against my family being the only reason or solace offered)... ALL I SCREAMED LIKE A BANSHEE WAS..WHY ME..?? When my husband beat me black & blue & insulted me without even making a pretense of finding an excuse, & when I was losing my sanity in solitary confinement , trapped in a ruthless marriage...MY ONLY COHERENT THOUGHT WAS ..WHY ME..?? When I was rummaging for pennies all over the house to scrounge enough to buy meds for my sick daughter & ultimately even stole the money from someone ...mired in guilt & shame...ALL I COULD WHISPER TO GOD WAS...WHY ME..?? When I was tormented each day for birthing only daughters & finally turned out onto the roads at midnight with my baby daughters...I STRUGGLED TO UNDERSTAND... WHY ME..?? When I literally had to beg the school management to let my girls stay in school despite their fees being majorly delayed...stripped of all dignity.. walking home in a haze of tears...I ONLY WONDERED..WHY ME..?? & Finally when a lovingly set up flourishing business went kaput due to being stabbed in the back by a business partner that I had mentored from a young girl & thought of as family...it was a double blow... THAT LEFT ME NOT EVEN WITH THE STRENGTH TO QUESTION ..WHY ME..?? & Now I have my answer...each time I was CRUMBLING. I was working toward the COLLAPSE...
The collapse leading to my rebirth...making me the STAR I am today.... SHINING.. for my self, my daughters, my supportive family & countless others , sharing..lighting up the way for all those who are cracking, crumbling & collapsing.. #HaveHeartWillLive

Growing up, I was always told that I had to fit into a box. I could either be good at math or write poetry at school. When I wanted to study both Economics and Journalism at university, I was told that I could either be good at analytics or creativity. When I got to working full-time, I was told that I will have to choose between being an avid content creator or getting my work done on time. I'm so blessed to have been able to prove the naysayers wrong and do all these things and more. It is only our nature to put others into a box or assign a particular label to them to make things simpler. But don’t ever think there is anything wrong in being multifaceted. Never let a single label define you.

“Hi there! Do you believe in patience? Patience & perseverance are the two good qualities which every individual should posses.
In the above picture, you see me as a happy person standing along with my beautiful little daughter. But I did have very bad times in the past!
Every woman struggles in her life, especially after getting married. Mine was completely different! What could be so bad than your own relatives and the people around you showing you racism? Do you all know how bad it hurts? How hard it could be when someone just wounds you by words, just for the color of your skin? Have you personally experienced it? Well, I did!
I got married to a gem of a man, but one who had the exactly opposite skin tone. Yes, he was very fair and I was brown! In a few days, after getting married happily, still in college, I had to face the worst part of my life! In comparing with the color always, and could you imagine I have stood almost, for 16 hrs and do nothing except crying ! Can I share this with my parents or grandparents? They would just die in an attack about thinking that or it’s going to be worse of throwing this so unhealthy life and be on my own!
Can I or No ? Can I or No? This is what kept haunting me! But one fine day I decided to speak up myself and I observed that my patience through out the crisis, was the one which yielded me a result - That’s my Life
My husband would never talk about it, being the most lovable person, but for all who spoke behind me building grape vine tales, have to keep their mouth shut, for all the good qualities I had, and how my family has been taken care of!
It’s my humble request, for everyone not to compare anyone with skin tone, or color, look into for good hearted people, kind hearted people, there are plenty in the world with good souls! If you have been like me, or if you have been the other way around, just apologize to yourself for what you have done, and treat, respect all people same! “
