I am still 16 – OKAY 85%


“Keep a diary, and someday it’ll keep you.”

– Mae West

What a saying, Today daily prompts, forced me to open my diary when I was 16. I bring it out and start reading. I read it for about 1 hour and just forget why I brought it out from my old bag.

My diary, kept me, preserved me in my sixteen very well. I smiled and get sad also while reading the random pages. Okay let’s say I am 85% still like 16 years old Afsheen, Surprisingly though! And I am glad that the lost 15% was not worth enough to keep at all.

I had taken some clicks from my diary, I want you all to meet the 16 years old Afsheen by yourself!



Allah is always with me, I write notes like these often.




 I love Pakistan

I can’t see anything losing by Pakistan, whether it is in any sport, politics, or the people of Pakistan. I want to see my country with great power of Unity, Faith, Discipline and Love. I can just honestly do what is in my share and only PRAY FROM ALLAH.

    • 🙂 Hello Selah

      Glad to see you friend 🙂

      I was also kind of excited and surprised (on few thoughts of 16 year old afsheen) when i was reading my diary yesterday for this prompt. I have diaries of different year and i Sound like same in all. I think i am not changed alot.

      I am like an open book, not only on this Blog but also in my personal and professional life, i say things easily , i can’t hide things in my heart. I believe in expressing my feelings and thoughts, This is the best way to feel light inside and to keep your relations strong.

      I hope to see you again.
      May Allah bless you and your loved ones. ameen

    • Hello Martha,

      Thank you so much for giving my Blog your precious time.
      Well I still want to visit these countries , i didn’t mention Iran , China and India, I really really want to visit these 3 countries. They sound so mysterious to me.

      Anyway , Glad to see you here.
      May Allah bless you , ameen

      • China is wonderful and that is the first country I visited (lived in!). When I made my list (1964) China wasn’t even on it. Iran and India, yes, I’d like to visit them, too. I still have a list but traveling taught me that my list is just names of places; once I get somewhere it’s millions of times more interesting than I imagined. And as Robert Frost wrote in his poem, The Road Not Taken, one road leads to another that we never even knew was there!

        Blessings on you, too.

      • greater Martha..how did you find China then??
        Iran has so many holy places which I really want to visit.
        India’s culture is very same like us in few parts but they also have so many other cultures which are very unique
