I have found myself....

so lately I have being feeling this urge to write again on this blog...... How do I begin? And Where? And with what? So much has happened and I feel that inner that "Alisha"..... I haven't being there for sometime and I owe it to that place to pay a visit.....

Another chapter has begun in my life.... I whole new chapter. I got married to Hatim Asrary on August. 8, 2008 how we met I shall leave to another time to share.. We celebrated our one year anniversary on August.8th, 2009 and we had our wedding reception on my mother and father's wedding anniversary which was Saturday July. 25th, 2009 (on that day they celebrated their 25th year anniversary). What a celebration it was with friends, family and love, and to new beginnings and dreams.

I visited Casablanca, Morocco this past September 2009 spending one month and five days there.. I never would have dreamt or imagine that I would visit Morocco.... As I walked in Morocco saw the people, felt the waves of the Atlantic splash onto my feet watching my toes crinkle from the cold of the water, finally feeling the heat from the sun beating on my back and watching the sun set...... I smiled to myself and remember once typing such a post on this blog... two years ago to be exact and words or emotions can not unleash from me to express what I was feeling in that one month and five days I was in Morocco. My fairytale did play out right before my eyes.

Visiting Morocco enabled me to reflect on alot of things in my personal life before I met Hatim and after..... I would think to myself as we rolled through the valleys and mountains of Markesh....... my life was rolling.. and those times I use to feel confusion, desperation, fear, hope, and faith for dreams I wanted to play out in front of my eyes so badly but just wouldn't and I would ask myself in my sleep and in my days as I walked from to and there "just why?" why can't this roll out to be the way I want it to be... but all praises and thanks goes to Allah (SWT) for guiding and knowing what's best for you and guiding you to your destiny and enabling you to learn and reflect from those experiences..... and as I was in Morocco a smile crept onto my face as I thought these past moments.... and I was happy I was once finally in a place where I belonged.. because he simply said to me one summer eve "you deserve to be loved".

I'm sitting in a room- with my husband's friends and family- It's christmas day- everyone is off. The candles are buring, the room is filled with laughter and smiles- my parents are here sharing their stories- I'm typing infront of the fire- My husband holds my hand.

Hatim is almost done reading all of my posts - since I started my blog. That's my gift to him.

To wake up every day with the feeling to choose what you want to do in that day and when you're going to do it- is freedom... your freedom. No man can take that away from another man. Even a prisoner has freedom- the right to look at whom he wants to look at- the right to think the thoughts that he/she wants to think. We're free if we make ourselves free and sometimes that is hard to do.

This is bliss.......

My sister had her wedding last week Friday August.1st/o8 (pictures to follow) which was amazingly beautiful (a backyard garden wedding) lights streamed every where, flowers at every glance/ rose petals flooding the floor, the beating of the drums, my sisters husbands friends singing the "traditional wedding song from morocco" as they're bringing him to my sister- simply was breath taking.

words can not express- pictures soon to come.:)
