Meet SAIRA – A romantic, complete and happy escape artist that knows she matters.
When you are sad or feeling down describe what you feel and how do you get through it?
When I am sad or feeling down it’s as if the rain is pouring down on me and I can’t find an umbrella. The rain is pooling in my boots, soaking through my hair and I just feel cold and uncomfortable. I get through it by reaching out to a friend or listening to something inspiring or I escape into a novel, so I can immerse myself in someone else’s plot line for a while. After some time, the rain in my heart lifts and I feel sunny again.
Tell us about a time you failed and how you got through it?
I guess I failed consistently in intimate relationships before I met my husband. I attracted unrequited love, break ups and bad choices. I got through it by deciding to embrace and enjoy being single. I stopped looking for a partner to ‘complete me’ or fix my ‘brokenness’. I realized that I was enough and some guy’s treatment of me was not going to make me feel bad about myself.
What makes you happy and why?
What makes me happy is a roomful of my favourite people talking and laughing with each other. I love that buzz of positive company, the ideas that are generated and jokes that are told when people are in a good mood. That makes me happy because I believe I came here to spread joy, and other people’s happiness brings me a deep, spiritual sense of fulfillment.
What’s your formula for GREATNESS?
To remind people that they matter and not to take setbacks personally.
