Faux fringe ✂️💋
Went through pictures some 4 years ago and realised how much I loved styling my hair (I became obsessed with braids for some time and would learn via YouTube tutorials till my arms hurt). Then I cut my hair short and came the beach waves, effortless waves period. Now they’re long enough to experiment after 2.5 years and I’m excited to try new styles! Which styles are you guys partial to? Let me know! 🌺
“I go through phases. Some days I feel like the person I’m supposed to be and then, some days, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the day you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me” - Mary Kate Teske
I look back at my pictures from 6 years ago and all I see is a lady-child dressed up in formal shirts, dark lipsticks and heels all the time and CRINGE. Does everyone spend their teenage dressed up looking like a woman or was it just me?! 🤭
smiling after a downright shitty week to attract good energy. Type A personality’s worst trait, trying to control every outcome in life which is obviously not possible and then drowning in feelings of failure. I’ve been trying to break this cycle for a while, teaching myself to take each day at a time and to just BREATHE. Key is to not let time run it’s course but to actively do stuff that makes you happy, anything really to get you out of this rut. I woke up today, wore my brightest shirt, did my makeup and watched animated movies out in the garden. Nothing extraordinary but small things that make me feel good.
What do you guys do when having a bad day/week/month? 🌸
Finally said goodbye to my least favourite rotation ‘ob gyn’ last week. While I have nothing against it personally, I hate the perception of it being a ‘woman’s only’ field in our society. It’s completely okay for fellow male colleagues in med school to pass comments like ‘oh you’re a woman, you’ll surely aim for ob gyn’. I remember once asked which speciality I’d choose and when I replied ‘Surgery’, my colleagues said ‘So you think you’re smart enough or hard working enough to be able to cope with it?’ I remember becoming so offended with their words but after some time I realised there actually aren’t many female surgeons in Pakistan, especially in a perceived man’s specialty like Cardiothoracic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery and the likes. And although societal pressure does play a role in women not opting for these fields, one cannot ignore the fact that male doctors also make it hard for female doctors in pursuing a career in these cut throat fields. But who is anyone really to tell you what you deserve in life? Where your place is? I guess what I’m trying to say is that please let no one tell you what you deserve and what you can handle. Be your own judge and have enough fire in your belly to go after your dreams and passions. The naysayers do not matter. You do. Believe in yourself and just concentrate on your end goal. Do not waste time giving explanations for your choices and decisions. You deserve everything you set your heart to and I truly pray your every goal one day! ✨
