Why I deleted my old blog

Some of you may wonder what happened and why I deleted all of my old posts and pictures etc

There are two reasons actually.

The first one is that the woman who started this blog more than a year ago and the woman who writes this blog now are two very different people. A year ago I was in so much emotional pain I felt like I couldn't breathe, like I was drowning and I wouldn't make it. I didn't really believe that blessings could come through trials but I knew at the same time it was a promise that Allah makes and I wanted so badly to trust in that. Each day dragged by like a year and the only thing that got me through apart from Allah swt was my blog friends, a few in particular made all the difference for me.

And then my baby boy came and he was like sunshine flooding into my life, even if things were falling down around me it didn't matter because I had him. I'm pretty sure no one got a better Eid present than me last year ;) And after that things got better and better, in late October I  got a house that I literally wouldn't of ever dreamed of having and just a three weeks after that something else came into my life that made up for every bad thing that ever happened to me. Maybe one day I'll tell you all about it :)

And now I look back and I don't want those posts lingering around for my son to read one or actually for even me to remember, it takes me back to a time that I would rather not focus on. I am grateful for that time in my life because it showed to me just how much Allah loves us, he truly is the ever merciful. But now there are new things to focus on, I wont forget my past but I will not dwell on it.  

The second reason is because of the evil eye. I wont go into this too much but I learned the hard way through my now defunct private blog and mistakes I made after that too much sharing information is not always a good thing, sadly not everyone is as happy for us as we would hope they are. It's not something we should become paranoid about but I think discretion about certain issues is not a bad thing really.

I will always keep my blog address though because if there is one thing I have truly learnt and believe with all my heart is that Allah truly does give our sweetest blessings through trials.

  2. MashaAllah. It is a good decision to cleanse yourself of anything you feel a burden, especially things that keep you shackled to the bad days when you have so much joy and thankfulness in your heart.
    I support your choice and decision about discretion when it comes to some things.

  3. Thank you for your comment sweetie, it feels nice to be rid of all that pain from my blog alhamdulillah. Allah is so merciful, thank you for that reminder xxx
