Hi There! Welcome to my blog. I just wanted to introduce myself to the blog world. I am Munziba Khan. I am originally from Bangladesh. I move to Washington, DC when I was 13 years old and have been living here ever since. My background is Mongolian and Mughal dynasties. Yes, I am a descendent of Genghis Khan. I have ADHD and generalized anxiety disorder, which allowed me to appreciate small beauties and victories in life. I am also an Epidemiologist by training and have a passion for public health and health equality.
My job in the healthcare industry introduced and trained me in mindfulness-based meditation, giving me the passion and goal to live in the moment. The past five years of mindful practice gave me the opportunity to love myself and be comfortable being me. I am happy in my own skin. I love my mindful life and enjoy the small things in life, and be optimistic.
I am part of the Millennial generation and live with my parents and my sister and I love my life. My parents live with me and my sister and I love every moment with my family. What this pandemic taught me to not take my life for granted. Over 204,000 Americans lost their lives because we failed to act quickly. As a public health professional, I am angry, disappointed, and annoyed. I want to use the various social platforms to express, advocate, educate, and spread my message and my love. This is about my life; the life of a public health professional with ADHD and anxiety, a millennial, a daughter, a sister, and an individual.
Forever NIJ is everything that is important in my life such as living with ADHD, health, beauty, fashion, DIY natural beauty, mindful meditation, travel, movies, and recipes I have come across. I will share them with you.
I currently live in Maryland and grew up in the center of everything, Washington D.C. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Adams Morgan, a very culturally diverse neighborhood, full of ethnic and authentic restaurants, city lives. I grew up learning to explore the city by walking. You learn a lot just by walking through the streets and seeing up close. I use that same experience, any places we visit, which makes a huge difference in the outcome of the trip.
I also believe in living like a million bucks without hurting your wallet. When I see all these amazing and bloggers in their expensive designer outfits I tell myself, “Good for them”. However, a lot of people want to look like that but can’t begin to afford it. I am always looking for sale prices to make to look like million bucks without hurting my wallets as much.
Additionally, I am an adult living with ADHD, with impulse issues and I have learned to some tricks to keep my sanity. If you have the same issue this site is for you.
Growing up in Washington DC have given me another such gift, a chance to interact with so many beautiful people. My dad had a restaurant and as a result, I had a chance to interact with so many beautiful people who came to the restaurant, from former NFL player, model, and CDC deputy direct, Secretary of Treasury, to amazing people visiting Washington D.C. from all over the world and country.
My interaction opened me to appreciate different values and opinion. Now that I live in a more suburban neighborhood of Maryland, it’s allowing me to really sit in the quiet backyard and look at the sunset and the stars and reflect on myself and my life that is passing by in front of mine, while most of the time we let it stay in autopilot.
At the same time, I am an adult living with ADHD with good and bad days…though I am I am learning to enjoy the present moment as the past is gone, and the future is not here yet. I will try to bring something new each time something relating to me, about you, about us. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing them.
