Letter to Colleagues for Cancer support

Going through the treatment and want to say thanks to colleagues for their support?

Use my letter that I sent to my colleagues as a guide.

I have to start out by saying that I am truly amazed by all of the love and support I have received since being diagnosed with breast cancer. I have had so many friends, family and co-workers help me out financially and emotionally, that I have found it very difficult to send a thank you card to each and every one of you. So I apologize for having to do it this way but every one of you deserves special thanks.

You guys have been my rock and I love you guys so much.

As most of you already know my chemotherapy is starting from today, and the battle just gets more tougher but closer to the finish line , I am taking it head on!

I might not be at my best during this phase and you might see me arguing , easily irritable or just trying to remember something (chemo-brain is for real !! ) , please bear with me during this phase.

 

If going through breast cancer is one of the toughest challenges that I have to go through in my life, all of you have made it that much easier to cope with.

 

I wish you all health and happiness .

You have got Cancer…

As a kid if somebody asked me what kind of a person I was, I would say an adventurous one! and I thought my life was pretty adventurous , until recently… life said to me, “Child, you haven’t been adventurous enough. Here, take cancer and be more adventurous”.

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Tbh, I took the news quite casually as opposed to my family being overly emotional . I don’t know why it was so casual for me, may be I expected it to happen since my Aunt and uncle had it and I thought in my subconscious mind that I am going to get it . Yeah so life has definitely become more adventurous now 😀

Just got my bilateral mastectomy done as soon as I got the news and now in the recovery phase. Cannot explain to everyone how important it is to get yourself checked for any and everything regularly. Alhumdullilah , I caught the cancer at stage 1 but still have to go through a number of preventive treatments including chemotherapy and I am already shitting my pants 😀

It is so very important to stay positive through this whole ordeal . Could be for your family,  friends, kids, parents but look for something that you would want to stay positive for. And you have to be selfish , it is ok to be selfish through this time. Take your time to heal . I am being very positive and have already agreed with Allah that all my sins are now cleansed  😀 and I am going straight to Jannat.  hahahaha.

 

 

 

Say no to shopping

I know what I am trying to convey is hard to accomplish but hear me out before you hit the back button.

So I went to a warehouse sale today. It had most of the stuff that any girl wants to buy on her shopping spree. Stuff including clothes, shoes, jewellery, cosmetics , household stuff, decor candles etc etc. And we all know warehouse sales are the cheapest ones. But we forget that it is the stuff which failed to impress the customer and hence is now sitting in the clearance sale. 

So I started filling my cart, the black heels, the soap dispenser, the pretty notebook, the cool nail polish color because where will you get a 5 aed nail polish from? It was humid and hot but people were keen on filling their carts. 

As I stood in the line at the counter, I saw what people had picked. I stood there and just observed and noticed. My cart was the smallest of all and while feeling bad for myself that why didnt I pick more stuff, I started to think if I need more stuff to fill my cart. Looked inside my cart and it hit me.

Do I really need THIS stuff ? 

NO

The answer was no. I didnt actually really need that stuff. Started thinking of all the stuff I have at home, clothes sitting inside the cupboard that dont even see the day light because they are stuffed with more clothes. And so I left my cart right there and walked out empty handed. People turned and looked why I couldnt find a single item from this warehouse sale, but I felt accomplished.

I felt I had overcome a devil inside me that urges me to shop. People might have thought I am a fool for not availing this awesome opportunity of shopping but then do I care what people think of me? I came out empty handed yet strong!

Because thats the truth!! 

Too soon to move?

Hi ya all,

It’s Summer time in Dubai and it is so damn hot outside. We don’t go out anywhere, it almost feels impossible to breathe, so high humidity and high temperatures. I swear a saw a video of people making an egg fry on the road with at least 48 degrees outside.

Any who, so its only been hardly 6 months in our new apartment, and we are already thinking of the areas we would like to move to next year. I mean seriously!!! why? this current apartment , trust me is very good in every way ( ok the kitchen is too small, but still! ) . Our building is almost out of the city, very secluded place with only a few official building and the best thing is a metro station near by and the direct access to Sheikh Zayed road.  Then the inside of the apartment is like a dream come true with a huge terrace roof , stairs and 2 rooms . I mean its like a pent house. So me and hubby ( I recently got married as well, didn’t I tell ya? my bad) we both are earning like a common middle class people but you look at our apartment it makes us feel like millionaires!!

So having a millionaire feel apartment and salary like peanuts , we have exhausted ourselves in just 6 months and now we are ready to move. There are so many things to consider though before we move. The new one close enough to the office? the area of the apartment, the balcony? the kitchen size, number of cabinets , bathroom size. etc etc and the list goes on! and then you have to book what you see immediately because only God knows why these people in Dubai can’t hold the property for even a month for somebody!

Are you thinking of  moving to Dubai . You must consider this.

Have you been through this already ? share your thoughts .
