Bye 2016!


Damn, 2016 has really been something, hasn’t it? All that’s happened has really shown us that we are but mere mortals. At least that’s how I feel. This year has really humbled me. And scared me a little. But we made it. Alhamdulillah. And for that, I am truly grateful. So much of my childhood and whatever little innocence I had left has been taken away. From David Bowie to Muhammad Ali to Prince to Fidel Castro to Debbie Reynolds. People who somewhat shaped my formative years through their work. Gone. Some very close family losses that shattered me. But I will survive. And through it all we thank God. And we have had some wonderful moments. 2 of my cousins got married and made such beautiful brides. A friend had her first child and I had blonde tips! Lol, accomplished, I know.  I’m praying 2017 will be kinder. That we will be more and do more. That whatever losses and lessons we have accrued will make us all the better.  Here’s to a Happy New Year to all of you, and yours and may the best of our todays be the worst of our tomorrows!

P.S. Thank you so much for being with me here on Oshinity by Oshin this year. Next year will be even better, Inshallah.  Lots of love!

    What I can say is that 2016 has been full of surprises… more of a roller coaster… lol. When you think this is it…shock on your soul… the ride wasn’t over yet… All in all it was full of happy moments and nostalgic… We made it through. Alhamdullilah! 🙂 Looking forward to reading more of your blogs next year!
