I feel so honored to have been invited to this community of such inspiring women-bloggers. Thank you so much Lynne for the opportunity to connect with you all and I really look forward to making some long term relationships here.
My name is Rubitah and and my website or blog is called Being Rubitah, where I write my heart out on topics concerning faith, marriage, parenting, health and Bahrain.
I live an ordinary life in the Kingdom of Bahrain, with my husband and son, though I belong to my dearest country India.
I had a scientist of a grandfather which led me to believe that I should be one too! So I completed a degree in Mathematics only to realize that I didn’t quite enjoy it.
I then went on to form a christian musical group which did really well in it’s short life span. However, when someone suggested me to pursue performing arts, my heart rang a bell and I dropped the whole thing.
One thing that always stuck to my heart and I enjoyed doing, was volunteering for different causes.Thankfully my mother recognized it and encouraged me to apply for a post-graduate degree in social work. I humbly complied.
The course was a total eye-opener and it helped me to find my true self. I became more confident of my views and realized my need to be more forgiving of myself. More than anything else- it gave me gratitude.
Post the degree I worked for a social enterprise in New Delhi in the area of volunteering. I loved my job! From motivating people of different capacities to work for social causes with their skills, to helping non profits find useful resources and mentors, to carrying out campaigns myself, I had some great experiences there!
Two years later I got married and moved to the Gulf, where unfortunately, my social work goals could not continue. I went on to becoming a mother and feeling quite content at it. The stay at home phenomenon though started to bug me soon. Being a social worker I was always updated about everything. Being a full time mother, I was still updated but I had no one to share it with.
Hence in November 2018, after a lot of pushing and persuading from my family, and with no prior experience in writing, I started my blog. Its been 9 months and I have to admit I have enjoyed it!
I have learnt so much in this short period although I know I have a long way to go!
This platform is so refreshing in the sense that it genuinely aims at building relationships.
Hope to be friends with all of you! 🙂
PS: It;s my birthday tomorrow!
