So far so good.

Like many parents would say, they have come to understand life once their child came along. Might seem a strange thing as most people will have their child in their adulthood. (For the sake of generalisation) some people will even get to a stage in their early adulthood where they decide they want a career & maybe even travel before they make this life changing decision. I was one of those, worked out well for me.
I won't say I knew, because if I truly did then I'd have acted on them, so il just say I knew of the benefits of leading a healthy life. It came in various forms. From the supposed 5 a day to drink plenty of water. Came across a concept known as feng shui. Was raised in a household where cleanliness of a house is the reflection of the owner. Never stopped be to think twice about the God aweful mess my place was, a few friends will gladly testify. Lived on take always & redbull. Forget the health & well being degree, that attracted a deeper part of me that was yearning for a well rounded approach to what health is.
Nights out & cheese burgers were the norm.
Fast forward to a scorching hot climate on the other side of the planet, where I was born. Never mind the exact location the google maps pin would drop. I find myself naturally transitioning to healthy organic food. Camel milk as a staple diet, because I owe it to the soul sharing everything I put into my body. The minute my body started to change, I started to actually pay attention to these limbs of mine. Typical human, we truly are a peculiar species.
So when I find myself stepping into the year 2017 "healthy" having given up all vices, except for one😒 because I'm so conscious of not only what I put in my sons body but what I put on his body. I find myself questioning what kind of a mother & a woman I am. If it isn't good enough for my son, it isn't for me.. So cranking up the research adding onto what I had previously learnt. I find my hair and skin glowing. Feeling happier. Which naturally transitioned to altering not just the cream I put on but the course of my life. Walking away from a safe income, because where there is a will there is a way they said. So came the question, do you continue to dream or do?
So here I am 4 months in with more time to spend with my family, in my home, creating wealthy habits, healthy products, learning everyday, not making any one else rich but me, practicing what I preach. Leading by example not just for my son but for little old Asli too.
So the journey continues...

One dark night

Life is one long night, the journey that is.

This journey called life, they say don't take it for granted it's a gift. Doesn't matter who or what you believe in. It's a gift not to be wasted. It's all the unknown. Whether you believe in a higher power or the Big Bang theory or why not both? The bottom line is life is surviving in the forest on your own in a dark night. There is only one way out. Either you have faith and feed your guardians or your demons. Whichever you chose is how you set the pace for this journey. So which is your reality now?
