a stubborn desire…
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening, and live like it’s heaven on earth.” ― William W. Purkey
I’m Ziddi Tamana (meaning: A stubborn desire). It’s my alias for my blog and in the web world. Because I talk about so many personal things, family and friends included, I decided a long time ago that I would keep myself anonymous or famous just by my alias.
I love to write; which is why I launched this blog in 2009. Life took lots of turns since then and so did my blog. For the people that have followed me since, you’ll know how much has happened and changed in my world. For those of you who just got here and are beginning to get to know me, you can read through the “My Life” category and you’ll catch up.
2012 has brought with it so many magnificent things for me. I recently got married “officially” to a man that has brought nothing but happiness to my life. We got married in August 2011 but never told our families. Finally, when we did tell our families that we were ready to get married, D asked for my hand in marriage and all the festivities began. You can read the full story of why and what happened here.
I’ve now moved into a new apartment on June 1, 2012 from a one bedroom basement to a two bedroom apartment. After returning from India, D and I found out that I am pregnant; which stemmed the move into the two bedroom apartment.
I gave birth to my beautiful daughter, Ni, on October 31, 2012. She is the most precious little thing I have ever seen. Her little smiles and coos bring extreme joy to my heart and just lighten my soul. I never thought I’d be a mom, but becoming a mom has turned out to be one of the best joys of my life. It truly is a blessing.
So, you’re all probably wondering why I chose the name Ziddi Tamana for both my blog and myself. Well the reason is that life has been tough for me. There have been many occasions when I nearly gave up. But something inside me, yes my stubborn desire to live, push forward and succeed kept me moving. I never gave up.
Ziddi Tamana is about my life. It’s who I am. It’s who I’ve become. No matter what life has thrown at me, I’ve fought through it and look, I’m still here. If that isn’t a stubborn desire, than you tell me what is.
This blog represents who I am and what I believe in. You’ll find here details of all the experiences I encounter. You’ll find my opinion, sometimes unreasonable and harsh and other times sensitive and overly-caring. I’ll discuss things that other people may find taboo or hard to talk about.
To be honest, you’ll either love reading my blog or absolutely end up hating me for it. But personally, it’s my opinion and not everyone has to love it. There are things in my life and world that I absolutely love and hate and cannot go without discussing. And if any of those things offend or insult you, then I apologize in advance. My intention isn’t to insult or offend anyone. I just need to get my words and thoughts out into the open and if you don’t like it then just simply leave. Or better yet, stay and have a conversation with me and discuss your opinion and who knows I may change your opinion or you may change mine.
