I’m Nasreen, Nas for short, I’m beyond excited (and a lil nervous) to welcome you into my little corner of the webworld. You’ve stepped into a space that’s warm, inviting, and as quirky as they come.
So we’re clear – I’m the kind of person who’d rather have a conversation with a book or my journal than with a room full of strangers. I can be very shy, fearful of expressing my vulnerability (which is also something I deeply desire to do) and also will the person that won’t stop talking when I feel safe with someone. Important to note – If you also speak the language of sarcasm then we might as well get friendship bracelets right now.
As I take the vulnerability dive into my first blog post I want to take a second here to have you visualize a movie scene. A creative being sitting at a desk with their laptop open to a blank page, preparing for inspiration to flood in through their fingertips in the form of words on the screen. Expecting the most magical experience, only to find the fear of judgment stepping in causing the delete button to remove and all words typed. This mini scene is a taste of what starting this blog felt like for me. It felt intimidating, it was awkward, and all i could think about it “Is this how I should be doing it?” But here’s the thing – I’ve recently learned by embracing who we are, quirks and all, is where the real magic happens.
For the past three years, I’ve been on a spiritual quest to uncover my true essence and let my soul shine through. It’s been a rollercoaster, dismantling the robotic version of myself I’d constructed over the years. I felt a bit like a character from that HUMANS TV show, awakening to my own humanity. Season 1 was my favorite, Season 2 was… not memorable.
So, If you’re wondering who I am, know that I’m still discovering that every single day. What I can tell you is this: I’m a research junkie, always hungry for new knowledge. I see the beauty and potential in every soul, and I’m on a mission to help others see it too. I’m that person who gets lost in instrumental music, and I steer clear of large crowds and any places where animals are put on display.
At 35, I’m approaching life with a childlike wonder, exploring my values, redefining success, processing how to set boundaries and not take everything so damn personal. I’m learning to love my body unconditionally and not focus so much attention on what everyone else is doing. It’s a journey, and I’m excited to have you along for the ride.
My purpose here is simple: To lean into my vulnerability, to share the lessons life has thrown my way, in the hopes they resonate with and uplift you too. From breathwork to self-esteem, I’ll be dishing out tips and insights from wise souls and, of course, my own heart.
A few topics i’ll touch on are:
This space is a beacon of light, where you’re free to be exactly who you are, quirks and all. Because we’re all in this together, and love is the answer. I can’t wait to share that love with you and hopefully inspire you to allow your Soul To Surface too.
Until next time, Your girl who’s finding her way, Nas
