She is the river…..

She is the river… she flows gently constantly carrying within an undeniable strength and power …. no boulder no barricades can stop her…… her ebb and flow are life itself ❤️ #mehreenraheal #theriver #girlpower

On wings of hope……

The desire to excel is a human trait which gives us wings….. the desire to compete occurs naturally when one begins to run the human race… the desire to challenge is a sign of evolution…. but the desire to malign stems from insecurities from weakness …… we on our journeys as women can be equipped to walk away from insecurities only if we are strong in spirit , body and mind… if we are educated knowledgeable and enlightened…The need to concentrate on ones own strength ones own power ones own assets is what makes people like #Mehreenraheal who she is. Her new play on #urdu1 #mujhayjeenaydo is about women their conflicts their journey and the heinous practice of child marriage .  Imagine your 8 year old daughter ” married to a mature adult male ……. I shudder ….. imagine her pregnant at 11 years of age….. if she survives childbirth imagine her life…… I shudder to imagine …… allow your daughters to fly on wings of hope….. on wings of love and laughter ….. let you daughters live….. not exist……

Unforgiving……sadly…

Something I read by a journalist called #sophia a while ago has stayed with me…… not because it was a well written and well researched piece….. but because it was crass and insensitive …… the heading  said “Pakistani Actresses Who Gained Weight After Marriage.   BY SOFIA”……….hmmm interesting…… it does not state that they gained weight after childbirth….. it says marriage . Some of these beautiful drop dead gorgeous women after children today are still amazingly beautiful  and they are women who have evolved into mature strong individuals who are not to be measured in inches but in substance. This #sophia  person needs to review her callous statements on women who are leaders in their fields who as young women believe in health not in starvation. All said and done… is it confirm to warped ideologies? Is it not beauty when you glow with health and happiness ….. size in women should not matter…… but for the surface loving it matters….. I salute and celebrate women as there are for who they are!!!

Visible…..

Strength…. not just physical but mental emotional and spiritual that’s what makes a person healthy and strong ….. we today are so focused on the obvious outwards on the visible ,we fail to develop holistically. To be identified by what we wear which bag we carry what car we drive ….. though inside we maybe the most frail disturbed unhappy person we are socially acceptable … a truely sad state of affairs….

Constant …..

  They say a woman can change her mind at the drop of a hat…. they say a woman is frivolous…. they say a woman cannot decide…..  Ah but the one constant in the lives of most men and women …..? A woman…..”the mother” . She has no frivolity her decision making powers are on point….. she is articulate and clear when it comes to her children. Her mother strength never wavers…… for her child she feels no fatigue, no frustration ….. her desire to protect to nurture is supreme is constant……….. I see my daughter #Mehreenraheal  with her children and feel so much emotion it brings tears to my eyes….I see my heart beating outside my body …. I see my child being the best mother she can ……and I feel almost complete……how she learned how she multitasks…. it’s something I may have to learn from her……
