It's been a long time...

Hey Everyone! :D

Yes it's me it's been a while I know. Honestly saying I wanted to write several times but either it is out of my mind or I didn't feel like writing.

So what have I been up to? Well let me tell you - as short as possible. As always you can read the whole thing or the parts that you want to know. I will appreciate it a lot if you read the whole thing but I would understand if you don't.

There is a lot of things going on that I want to share with you all so let me start off by saying I'm really sorry for the late blog post. As you all know my health isn't so great, so trying to do any sort of activities is a lot for me to handle. For one thing it is not just my physical health that is being affected but a lot my mental state, I shall get to this a little later (Or just skip to that section it will be under title format) :)

Ramadan Diary

I want to apologise for not doing my Ramadan Diary this year, unfortunately it's not been the best with my health and because of it, it has affected my health in many ways, when it came to doing my Ramadan Diary, I have to admit at times I didn't feel like blogging, not just for my Ramadan Diary but even general blogging as I knew that I have to blog many things but I just don't feel like it sometimes. It's normal. It happens. It's fine. :)

However there were times when I wanted to blog but I couldn't because I was in a lot of pain and didn't feel well. I constantly felt tired and exhausted and being in paint 24/7 (literally) I wasn't able to do much. This also ties in to my mental state which at times I would forget about blogging about my Ramadan Diary and it was also affecting my mood too. This was the result of me not doing my Ramadan Diary so I want to sincerely apologise about it. I hope, In Sha Allah I would be able to next year though. :)

Health update

Since I'm already talking about my health let's get straight into this. As you are all aware my physical state requires me to take constant breaks and at times I am not able to to do anything. This is a very fluctuating type of illness that makes it difficult to be doing anything at all, it even affects planning events e.g. outings, shopping etc.

Aside from my physical side, my mental state has been affected a lot too. I have a time concentrating on anything, I am extremely forgetful that I may be reminded of it but still won't remember and occasionally I would.

It's not really something I appreciate much but it's part of my life and I am making slow and steady progress in controlling both my pain and my memory. However there are times where I ma slipped up and it has affect not just me but others like my family.

Anyway in terms of improvements there isn't much I can say unfortunately. But as always I am smiling and keeping things positive and I am always smiling. Smiling and staying positive is a powerful tool if can manage this is a negative atmosphere believe me life would be a great place. It will help you feel confident and uplifting too.

Overall my health is okay, I wish it was better but I just need to be praying and if Allah wills then it will happen. :)

Writing Update

If you are a follower of my Expressive writing blog, then you would have already realised by now the latest update if you haven't then please read the post by clicking on this link:

Moving on from this, I am still doing my writing as I am very passionate about writing as well as many other hobbies that I have. However because of my health I am moving with my writing very slowly, even though I want to so desperately want to do more I really have to make sure that my health is doing better as I don't want it to get worse.

Like I mentioned already in my writing post I should hopefully be able to get out a chapter soon after typing it up and brushing it up as much as possible. Please be patient.


As far as gaming is concerned I am not currently doing anything game-play based. I just want to take things slow and that means having to prioritise other things over this. However I am playing games on my phone: Currently playing Summoners War and Soul Seeker. They are both VERY fun and interactive game! I'm really enjoying it. Do check it out if you're interested in it.

What I am doing now

Well long term wise I am working on my health and to try and improve it as much as possible. I don't want to make it worse because then I would not be able to do many other things that I want to, So, aside for my health I'm also working on my writing (as you already know from the above) and I'm also working on my arts and craft including Youtube.

As much as I want to add a lot of content on my channel I really am limited because of my health, however I am doing art every now and then. If you would like to see what artworks I have been doing at the moment please check out my Instagram & Twitter (links above) and follow me to keep updated with my arts and craft and writing. :)

There is another thing that I am working on it is actually related to my next Youtube video, it's related to arts and I hope you all like it. I have mentioned it before in a blog very long time ago but didn't actually have the chance to carry it out. However now that I have the opportunity to do so I will hopefully be able to share it with you all. :)

On another note, there was another reason as to why I haven't been blogging and doing creative stuff as much as I want to. That is the lack of space in my house, because of the small space I wasn't able to do a lot of the things that I wanted to like painting, crafting, drawing etc. because there would not be enough space for me to do it. However now, I have a lot more space and I am able to do more crafty work!!! I am so excited about this that I have been waiting for years for this moment. Now I finally have the space to spread my creative wings a little more (not completely of course - health reasons,) and be able to be active once more.

From this I have some very good news! I am selling two of my paintings!!!! :D I am so happy to be able to do this, I have been waiting for a long time to be able to sell my creations and now I can. Below are pictures of the two paintings that I am selling one of them being the Youtube video that I created (the painting landscape). They are both dated and signed of course. If you are interested in purchasing any of these or both then please go ahead and buy them. I am selling them on eBay (Links under the paintings) however if you wish to make a personal purchase of these then please contact me by either commenting on the post or email me. I am really excited about this and I hope it goes well if it doesn't then I'm okay with that too. These paintings will make a lovely gift for anyone in their homes.

I will be making prints of my artwork but they will not be available right now but in the future.

Please note: I will be able to sell prints of these paintings even if they have been purchased.

If you comment or email me it will be based on the best price and first come first serve bases.

Purchase: Either comment down below for how much or email me or you can purchase it from eBay link:

Unfortunately I am selling these only in the UK as International will cost a lot. Unless of course you are willing to pay for the PP then I would be happy to deliver it.

Well that's all from me everyone you are all officially up to date with my life and I hope that you will forgive me for such a delayed post. Please stay tuned for my next Youtube video and post regarding the creative surprise!!

Take everyone and think positive, :)
