Chasing Butterflies

This post is going to be absolute randomness. Since I’m occupied with … just adult life things, I might end up squeezing bits of what could be 20 different posts.

Starting with mental health awareness reblogs.

Last 1 and a half months, I requested our blog friends who are mental health warriors and have added themselves to my Mental Health Warriors list/directory (need to rephrase this), to allow me to reblog a post written by them.

I have shared posts of everyone who I could contact but this doesn’t mean it ends here. I’m always open to sharing your stories any time you want just let me know in the comments or contact form or wherever you want.

I can’t thank each one of you enough for letting me share your story. It helps me and so many others. Your stories clear misconceptions and provide validation and strength to everyone who reads them.

And it helps me move forward with my goal of spreading awareness and making constant efforts to remove the stigma around mental health. I strive to see a day when people focus more on the health part of it rather than getting intimated by the mental part of it and start treating the mind as a part of our body.

On the job front…

Work is a bit easier these days. Because we all are running on 5% of our normal energy out of which 4% is consumed by stairs every morning.

In fact, I have started to get bored, and there’s this assignment I was eyeing but I’m not assigned on it because A2 told the manager that I’m busy (which I’m not) he just drags assignments. But I think it’s too soon to directly go to manager and request to be a part of that assignment. It’s only been like 2 months. I still don’t understand the culture here, especially the mindset of the bosses.

So I will try to be a little low profile until my probation ends.

The good part is, that I have made new friends. I’m realizing making friends is easier for me than I used to believe. I don’t know anybody’s intentions but so far people are nice.

And how abnormal is it to stop and take pictures of plants in your office compound. There are a few I want to capture like there’s a cactus tree! In the middle of other trees.

How crazy will I look? Or how CRAZIER??
 
(I wrote a draft of this post and couldn’t overcome my temptation to take that picture. It’s not really pretty because I took it while walking really fast, didn’t want people to notice. But I later got to know there are 2 such trees! And they have little flowers too. Might take a better picture soon)

And I walk from the drop-off point to my home (with a little shaky legs with fear of being mugged) and in the middle, there are plants and…BUTTERFLIES! Like this one…

Normally because it’s crazy hot at 4 pm to 4:30 (Ramadan timings) And I really want to get home sooner. I just look at them feel good and smile, but last Friday I saw a black and yellow one and by the time I pulled my phone out of my bag it was gone too far. I think this one lives at that specific point I saw 2 of these few days back. Maybe they like plants there.
And OMG!

Bridgerton season 2 is sooooooooooo much better than season 1

I binged hard, watched the whole season in less than 2 days.

And I have a confession to make

I watch Bridgerton for Eloise and Benedict. These 2 are the best ❤️

Can’t wait for their own seasons.

And there was this crisis situation last week.

The weekend before this one, my stomach got upset. And in a haste I had an extra dose of medicines because I had to go to work the next day.

Hense, constipation like never before. For a week straight!

I was eating anything I could find on google to fix the problem.

On 3rd … Brother: how is this possible? Where is this all going? Don’t you feel like there is a truck tied to your stomach”

4th day… Me: I’m literally so full of shit right now…

Brother: You are so full of shit you are turning into a piece of shit…

On 5th day… Bother: DAAAAADDDDD SHE IS GOING TO EXPLODE!”

Well. I think on 6th day the crisis ended. I think 1 tbsp olive oil in the morning and bananas helped… or maybe it was 20 other remedies. idk… I can just say I almost cried with joy.

Overall life’s going fine.

I’m trying my best to live in the moment and let myself be myself, writing smiling and chasing butterflies.

And oh I went shopping for Eid, something I don’t remember when I did the last time. Eid away from family never properly felt like it. This time I have plans to dress up and all, because I feel like doing it.

This random piece came to me on the way to work one day:

A good day is when you can dream again
When you can breathe openly, even when you are crammed up in a closet
When you can laugh heartily and loudly, even if you are the only audience cheering.
When you can fly without wings
Sing silently
And write your heart out with invisible quill

A good day is
When you are being nothing but yourself
And nobody is watching you

Or you don’t care if anyone is…

How sensitive a dreamer can seem to be
Carrying a limitless universe on the tip of her eyelash

Without weighing down her lids, shoulders and mind.
Just sitting there
An enormous universe on the tip of an eyelash…

thanks for tolerating 🙂

      Idk why i always imagine if i could have one non-human thing it would be wings.

      It was very short-lived impatience, new assignment dropped on my table next day lol.

  1. What a lovely post. Sorry about the constipation – I’ll throw my two cents in and offer up Senoket if it’s available (senna tablets) and anything with sorbitol. Eating disorders do a number on your intestines so we’re usually chock full of…solutions and advice 😉

    Lovely butterfly and I also want to say, I appreciate the posts about Ramadan, Eid el-Fitr and other pieces of Muslim life. I have no direct experience in my circle (aside from a long-ago friend at university) and so the insight is wonderful. Thank you 💖

    1. Oh i read about senna somewhere. I will screenshot your comment and save it since its a common issue when we are fasting. Ahhahaa i really really appreciate your advice, thank you! 🙂

      I’m not really too religious and try to be honest about it. Im glad you liked it 💝
