A Diary of Inspiring Stories

Treat your life like an open book, so others can read and get inspired. I believe ,not everything that is visible to the eyes are essential, sometimes invisible things can be your necessity. So be inspired by others and be matured enough to grasp the concept of having different perspectives……………………………

Travelling is for me the best way of expediting new places and in the process I can get the opportunity to exploring myself to resolve my issues and conflicts. Travelling any places near or far from home, brings a sense of relief ,joy and happiness. Life always needs a pause button………

Hi readers! My name is Shajiya Khanom. I am a freelance Architect, a wife, a full time mom to a four year old and an aspiring social worker. I love photography, painting, gardening, writing short stories, travelling and sports. I do not consider these activities my hobbies, but as my inspiration to live life everyday to the fullest.

In my school days, I wasn’t much of a fun loving girl. I was quiet and reserved. For me, growing up in a middle class conservative family and having to deal with all types of crucial family and social issues was really challenging. From going to school to college, from college to University, then having to get a job, get married, and have children – I had always understood that being alive meant the show must go on in the way we believe it was meant to.

Eventually I learned that life could get harder as my responsibilities grew. I have accepted my life as it is, though I have changed my attitude towards it. I take advice from others, learn lessons from my experiences, and then make decisions based on what I feel is right. I believe it is easy for me to keep myself happy rather than trying to bring myself up when I feel low. At the age of 40, I feel complete, confident, and happy with what I have, no matter how others respond.
