Have you ever wondered how much it takes of a spider to design and devlop that wonder web? Have you ever seen her falling free with a tiniest fragile link of the web and then crawling up again. An effort of completion, an effort to capture it's prey for it's living depnds on it. But what triggers that stucked bee to touch the web? She knows it would bring her death but even the she would touch the web, even then she would want to slide over its shining, brightening threads. But what's the end? P.A.I.N. leading to D.E.A.T.H.
We too drew a web, even more twisted, even more delicate but together. We drew it to surround ourselves from the outside world, to strengthen each other's existence. The threads of our web brightened even in absolute darkness for they were enriched with purity, for they were connected with commitments, for they were decorated with honesty. But How all of a sudden from no where somone stucked in our fragile web, creating holes and voids, and in your efforts to make the web clear again to shine like before, you got stuck and eventually falling out of the web. The web we promised to surround ourselves with. The web we curated with an utmost hope that it will protect us from odds was left void with my soul captured inside.
Would you, too, like the fly conciously touch the web when you pass by it knowing that you'll be enslaved and captured and will end up in P.A.I.N and D.E.A.T.H? .

Good 🌟 Morning, Grand Rising, Happy Day to you. See Good morning is offensive to some people did you know that? Morning means to.mourn, and they do not mourn the start of the day.
✨Language is a tricky thing. I understand that some people get their panties in a bunch when I say Source, Creator, Heavenly Father or Holy Mother God.
Some people get their panties in a bunch when I say
💕Perfect knowledge and Perfect peace,
💕(These are all names of God)
💕These are all names of one true God. It depends on where you are in the world and who you are talking to. Just because someone says, Universe doesn't mean they are giving of themselves to the world. To some Universe is the creator God.
⚡️But we tend as humans to look at things limited sometimes. As an interfaith minister and priestess, I have clients from all walks of life, faiths and religious backgrounds that I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve many. I am not here to judge or convert them to my belief system as my way is better.
💫I am here to reach people the way that I can and help assist and be a vessel. Sometimes that is coming on their level and learning about God the way that they see it. So that I can support.
💫Western way sometimes makes us believe that people have to see it and say it the way we do so you or they can be accepted.
✨How many friends do you have not like you?
💫How many clients do you have that look Different than you?
✨Do I have many why? Yes, I do ⚡️Not to brag or boast because I see people the way God asks me to see people for not just the words. But for a soul that is seeking help assistant and are in need of a spiritual counselor. If you want me to pray with you and use the Universe because Universe means one true creator God to you, then I will do so.
What I won't do is turn someone away because they don't see God or say God they way I was raised to do so. (continued in comments) read and leave your thoughts, please 🙏 👇
Every room of my apartment has a cabinet dedicated to storage for books. Often my family members complain about books occupying more than half of our three bedroom apartment. My premarital home has both my and my Professor father's collection. My marital home has my husband's collection of medical books alongside my set of books there. So, someday I might need to rent out an apartment just to keep my entire collection safe and probably run it as a library (though I am very possessive about my books). Until a year back, I had this good habit of making a purchase of 3-4 books, finishing reading them in about a weeks time and then purchase few more. I barely had any book that was in TBR status. Cut to 2018, a hyper active toddler and the journey of becoming a solopreneur seemed to have taken every minute of my time. Now, reading is only reserved for selective nights and on days when I am not working.
When I created my working space, I ensured to reserve a portion for my books on immediate TBR list. Some days, I read them in between my writing schedule and on other days, I ensure to pick up one before I retire to bed. I love Indian authors and I have been reading them for quite some years now. And there are some who I re-read because their work is always inspiring. And for me, there's nothing more relaxing than reading a novel in my mother tongue Bengali. So on every TBR of mine, there is always a book in my mother tongue.
Here's my work space that has finally been organized just like my thoughts and a close up of my TBR in my space @thewritetribe

THIS YEARS WORDS #5
It is a feeling that we get used to but never leaves us.Just like a tooth extraction,even though the tooth is gone we keep moving our tongue,poking at the hollow space left behind.
It is both peircing and gentle.It is a range all its own.Some days are 10s and some are 1s.But it remains nonetheless.Invisible companions peeking through, sometimes in moments of hilarity, sometimes in solitude.
This year was one of loss.Some more leaves were shed from the tree of life.I lost both grandmothers and a grandfather.
Our love shows itself to people in different shades and ways, custom made for each person that we get to know in our own capacity.Gentle for someone, stern for another.This year I lost a grandfather who let me hog his blanket,and who hugged me back as tightly as I hugged him. This year I lost a grandmother who treated me to toffees that she had especially stored away,who would stubbornly hand me biscuits to take along if we didnt stay for tea.I lost another grandmother who would wait for my weekend visits so i could trim her nails or fix her closet,who requested me to make "mazaydar kahwa" or pakoras.
This year I lost people who would give us duaas for being who we were.This year I grieved.This year I lost.
The only reprieve visible, is that we too are headed down the same path.No matter who we are,we are temporary.The only good thing we can do is honor the memories of our cherished ones by living how they knew us to be,how they taught us to be.To live with love,with kindness and above all with empathy. #writerscommunityofinstagram #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writtenword #spilledink #womenwhowrite #loss #grief #igers #igerspakistan #igerspak #humnahamid
If you’re reflecting on the year and goal setting for the next, you’ll want to check out my latest article…
Writing a book can feel monumental. Once you commit to the idea and wonder where to start, overwhelm can hit at the border of this new territory too. I get it. .
That’s why I intuitively developed my own response to all the relevant information I’d ingested before starting in earnest to write my first book. .
This became a 5-step method that got me started and kept me going. Even better, it’s applicable regardless of whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction, so I wanted to share it with you.
I invite you to follow the steps below to effectively counteract many of the objections your brain may throw at you, to keep you perpetually churning ‘on the blocks’ (it does that to keep you ‘safe’). This is also an exercise to revisit if you put off writing again once you’re underway... .
