Ashes to “Sona” is a journey of transformation. “Sona” means “Gold” in Urdu, the Pakistani National language.  Life can be a roller coaster ride for all of us, like a sinusoidal curve going positive and negative periodically. Born human, we live under a dynamic environment, constantly going through ebbs and flows of circumstances that shape us and mold us into a unique individual being. It’s all about learning how to ride the waves like a surfer and go through personal alchemy as we transform ourselves to live a fulfilling life. That transformation is ongoing for continuous human evolution.

When I look back at my life, I see a girl from a very patriarchal culture in Karachi, Pakistan. What kept me going to resolve and preserve no matter what the circumstances is the key for us to thrive in our life. What gave me the will and motivation to keep going is my outlook in life and my vision of joy and happiness surrounding us and humanity. I wasn’t willing to settle for less than my joyful vision.

As we transform, we evolve continuously and the daunting task can become habitual, automatic, and effortless. The process is like a rocket leaving earth: At first, it requires enormous power, then less and less as it leaves the earth’s gravitational field; and finally, it moves through space under its own momentum.

Dream BIG and make your dream a reality every day!
