About Me

Thank you for opening this page and for taking the time to visit my blog.

Welcome to Grow in Love. My name is Ayesha Hassim. This blog is about my personal journey and how Grow in Love came to be.

The aim of this blog is to share and express. I hope that the questions I think about and ponder on will inspire others to do so as well with their own lives.

I often wonder about life, about my role in this world, in my country, community and family as well as my individual journey.

Personal development as well health and wellness are of great interest to me. I like to see people happy, especially children. I love to see happy, healthy families and communities.

My life has not followed the usual path of degree, marriage, babies, etc. Regardless of what I did or how hard I tried to be “normal”, to just be like everybody else, to just do and follow through the way the rest of my cousins and friends did, despite my efforts, life was determined for me to follow my own path.

This is something I have finally accepted about myself and my life. It is now an aspect of my life that I can finally appreciate and be grateful for. It is this amazing journey of an ordinary life that is extraordinary in every way, that I plan to share with you.
