Dealing With Conflict

Hello and Salaams!

This page is now being revised and edited for inclusion in my upcoming book, published by Beacon Books!

Do look out for a link to pre-order, coming soon.

Peace and Love,

Sidra Ansari

PS To help me on my journey to enoughism I will write down 3 things I am grateful for at the end of each post. These are:

1. Summer hols lie ins! – not that I get much of a lie in with Mr. Cuddles up and about early, but I’m so grateful to not have to rush anywhere in the mornings and have lazy mornings full of pancakes and sticky toppings!

2.  The trains. I got used to travelling by train when I used to live in London and travelled to Uni daily but I have been avoiding them for a while for various reasons.  This season I’m appreciating the effectiveness of trains in getting us where we need to be.  I am so grateful for trains!

3. The children’s cousins.  I don’t know what I would do if I was the sole person in charge of making the children’s summer holidays memorable.  I am thankful for their cousins (and aunties and uncles!) who lighten our load and are happy to make memories with us all! AlhamduLillah!

Since you’re here I have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the than ever but advertising revenues are non-existent. And unlike many lifestyle magazines, I haven’t put up a paywall – I want to keep my writing as open as I can. So you can see why I need to ask for your help. These posts take a lot of time and hard work to produce. It would be amazing if you could help fund me by donating a coffee a two to keep me going! Please press here to give.
