My Epiphany


  1. Do not beat yourself for being sad or for feeling things you may not be used to. It has been 6 years since my grandfather who raised me passed away and I can not speak of it or him without busting into tears.

    Your father loved you and he would want you to be happy and go on with your life. I am sure that is what made him happy when he was with you. Just think of that. He would never want you to hurt or feel bad for living.

    Focus on all the good in your life inshAllah.

    1. Thank you 7abeebti.. I will not say I am not in pain.. but I will try to focus on the good enshallah. Hope to meet up with you again soon <3

  2. That's the moment everyone grieving need, to find it him/herself when it's time to go on, it should happen on their own terms not everyone around who keeps pushing people to "move on".

    And congratulation on your daughter's graduation :)

    1. Exactly, I won't lie.. I am still not 'over it' don't think that point will come in my lifetime... but it is important to accept life as it is... and try to take the good that is left <3

      Thank you dear.. I am very excited :)

  3. I happened upon your blog because I googled for "Raha Moharrak".
    Now I'm reading a bit here.
    A couple of comments . . .
    I sorry to hear you're having some trouble with your sadness over your father's passing. It's never easy for people that are so dear.
    One thing you might try . . . there is a really good book that can help with such losses
    "Necessary Losses: The Loves, Illusions, Dependencies, and Impossible Expectations That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Grow" by Judith Viorst.
    It's very good - not just a pop psychology book - she is a respected author. I read it and it helped put a lot of life's passages in perspective.

    The other comment . . .
    I notice that your "Blogger" blogging platform intends to block people from right clicking - I guess the idea is to prevent people from copying photographs and so on. If you right click, you get a "Nice Try" pop up.

    In my opinion, this is more silly and actually a bit accusatory than it's worth. Many of us use "right click" to open links and so on in a new tab, but the "Nice Try" implies that you are trying to do something bad. It's easy to download the photos anyway - it doesn't block anything in the long run - so in the end you just get the impression that the blogger is a bit paranoid - which I doubt you are. But, you sure you want to leave that impression ?

    Anyway, try the book - I think it might help.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Kent! I truly do appreciate it. I will look into that book. I am trying hard to put things in persective, but I guess I am taking tiny steps.

      As for your second comment, I will admit I have been annoyed by it myself. There are often times when I come to my blog, and want to right click to open a link on another tab, I get that annoying message :) To be honest, I don't even think I have anything worth stealing. I will try and remember how to get rid of it, and take it off :)

      Lastly, thank you for passing by :)


Please leave a Message.... Thanks :)
