Pointless, somewhat bad writing, optimism and Instagram

Sometimes we get a little down because we’re upset or we upset somebody we care about. I am FAR from perfection, God knows. Depending on my mood, I either care too much about what others think of me or don’t care at all. I’m very clumsy, but a clean freak at the same time (you can imagine the chaos). I care too much, over think things and worry a lot, it’s not healthy and I bet it’s so annoying to my closest friends. Hey friends!

For example, back in 2008 when I was in high school, I participated in a play (bad idea) and forgot my lines and basically made a fool of myself on stage. I held the mic from my stomach people, no one could hear me and I just looked like a mute retard with bad dance moves (because I use my hands a lot, I’m very expressive). My best friend heard me fret over this for the rest of that school year, and it took me two years to get over it and get to the point where I can laugh about it (but secretly hope people can’t remember).

Anyway, this post is a little pointless. I just felt like babbling on the internet.
It seems incoherent and I keep throwing in all sorts of ideas. Confusion. Well, that kind of sums me up.
What I’m trying to say is, we were all created differently. Having people who love and appreciate me in my life made me realise that I am perfect with all my imperfections. I can be as quirky as I want to be, at least I’m real about who I really am right?
(It’s no excuse, however, to be rude or obscene in the name of being yourself. We all have to be ladies, ladies and gentlemen. But I appreciate anyone who can be themselves around me and the rest of the world).

Going in line with the randomness of this post, it’s not as pointless as I think it is. Someone very special to me is celebrating a birthday next week.
If you’re reading this, know that you are loved and I wish you nothing but good things in this life and the hereafter ❤
I bet I’m the first to wish you a happy birthday, a week ahead.

I turned 24 about a week ago (a week ago) and to be honest, I don’t feel like I have it together yet. I woke up that morning expecting to feel like I can conquer the world, or that I can fly and get one million Kenya shillings in the bank with a click of the mouse. Nope. Still the same ol’ confused girl with nothing but good intentions.

I have come to accept who I am, and that for some progress comes slowly for some and that I fit in this category. I push myself to be a better person, and make sure I go to bed feeling like I have accomplished something meaningful at the end of the day (however small the progress is).

I am very optimistic despite my slow progress, I know I am capable of so much. I’m optimistic about life, and even if I make mistakes from time to time, I learn and grow from them. I believe in my greatness and surround myself with people who inspire me. And I TRY.
I am thankful to Allah for all the wonderful people and things He has bestowed upon me.

I’ll end this post by sharing a few of my Instagram pictures. It is, by far, my favourite phone app and I am addicted! Recently, I think of different scenes in my daily life as pictures and snap whatever catches my eye and edit on VSCO.
You can follow me on Instagram (fatma_bint_sultan) to see more 🙂

Last thing, I’d like to thank all those who see potential in my blog! The feedback had been so positive that my morale has grown and I’m actually excited to write and post more! Thank you all, even if I’m sure you’re all my Facebook friends. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead, positive vibes only 🙂

Lots of love,
Fatma x x

Hello, I'm Fatma Sultan. Architecture is my chosen career path. My love and appreciation for art is larger than I can put in a few words but it all comes down to the freedom to express oneself in so many different ways: painting, sketching, drawing, poetry, writing, photography, furniture design, cooking, pottery and even personal style. I hope to inspire my readers in any way that I can, and at least put a smile on somebody's face. Thanks for stopping by!
