My name is tuba, what’s yours?

Tuba ( also transliterated as Toba, tooba). Is a female given name of Arabic origin, common in Turkey. Muslims believe that it a tree that grows in heaven ( tūbā tree). Other meanings are pure, beauty, creator.

My name is tuba or tooba , not touba or toubha. I hate both the names. My dad named me tuba.

There comes a moment where we ask ourselves, who am I? what am I? yet I’ve always been quite confident in my answer. So really, I like to ask myself “What am I?”. Am I cruel? Am I selfish? Am I tired? Am I hungry?

I’m the daughter of hardworking women. I am a kind, fascinating and hardworking mother too. And want to do something through my writing. I want to touch the soul of my readers.

I have just now started writing, my love, my family and my self-confidence pulled my hidden talent. I believe strongly in myself and what I write. I script the essence of my own story in blogs. My thoughts And ideas are practical, useful and relevant to meet the challenges of change and forge ahead.

I also make lots of mistakes, that’s I couldn’t even count but we learn by our mistakes. These mistakes have somehow bought me here.

If you are struggling for your identity, start small. Grow through what you go through.. Keep in mind to arrive there is your ultimate goal. Never, ever feel low.

“Live every moment, in whatever we are doing” Anonymous…

Apply a full stop to unproductive thoughts, feeling and actions of yesterday. Begin with a new one and believe in yourself.

Finally, I’m done with this, it took a whole day to complete but I’m done. Woohoo…Hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks for reading,

    My parents named me Malcolm after my father, never intending to call me that. What a nightmare, especially post 9/11 when you are so wedded to your legal name.

      It’s a blessing to have a name after your father… But what’s the meaning of Malcolm??

    Dear Tuba (the pure, beauty, creator),

    Quoting Elizabeth Thornton as follows:

    Mindfulness is a way of being present: paying attention to and accepting what is happening in our lives. It helps us to be aware of and step away from our automatic and habitual reactions to our everyday experiences.

    Speaking of being present in the moment with awareness and (engaged) mindfulness, I can see from your post that you are trying to “Live every moment, in whatever we are doing”, which happens to be a topic that I have quite a lot to convey to you in a highly engaging and expansive post entitled “🦅 SoundEagle in Best Moment Award from Moment Matters 🔖🏆

    The said post opens with this paragraph:

    A spiritual outlook with a minimalist perspective on life that is conducive to happiness is often predicated on living in the present moment through mindful awareness emancipated from the vagaries of the subconscious and the itinerants of the mind.

    To give us an opportunity to appreciate and discuss about these issues even more deeply and from multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, I would like to refer you to my detailed analyses and extended discussions in the concluding section called “Conclusion: Change Rules and Moment Matters” of this said post, available at

    May you find this post dealing with mindfulness and “living in the moment” beneficial to you as well as your partner in various ways.

    Wishing you a productive weekend doing or enjoying whatever that satisfies you the most!

    Yours sincerely,
