Stop complaining

Sounds easy.. And it kinda is.
I wanted my first post of the year to be about something I have thought about and something I have tried to change. Generally I’m a positive person but like every other human being I do complain, even if it is to myself and not for everyone to hear. As soon as we start to complain a wave of negativity hits us. That wave ain’t a holiday in Mykonos wave, it is a Nazaré (Portugal) surfing wave. In other words, it is high! That negativity tends to make the good things in life go unseen, they are kept hidden behind a wave & makes you focus only on the negative. And all the positives in life are slowly drifting away (drifting awaay, wave after wave hihi).

What I’m trying to say is that complaining -> negativity.
Negativity = bye bye positivity. Wow I really know how to explain things.

On a serious note, I do believe that being aware of when you complain is a real advantage. The minute you complain (and are aware of it) try to control the way you think and try to always see the pros (instead of the cons) in the situation.
You missed the morning bus… Well did you die? Maybe you got an extra minute hug from your kid or an extra minute to eat your apple. It’s not like you will have to run to work, catch the next bus.
– You forgot your headphones at home… Well does it hurt to hear your own thoughts?
– Someone stepped on your foot (super annoying)… Well did you lose your foot?
– It is super snowy and cold AF… Is it really that bad tho??

Put your thoughts to sleep,
do not let them cast a shadow over the moon of your heart.
Let go of thinking.

Happiness in a box!

So you guys know that I am all about positivity! 🙂 I love what this factor stands for and how it is an essential factor in our lives, that makes life better. Just positivity itself can lead to so many things as happiness, love and motivation. All these things are stuff we need to think about and that is why I wanted to share an idea of how you can maintain this in your lives.

I have a way of reminding myself everyday of how blessed and loved I am. That makes me positive and motivated for everything I do in life. I have a little, pink box on my bedroom table, next to it I have small note-sized pieces of paper and a pink pen. What I do is I write down one quote, aya(quran verse) or a saying that I like on each paper. Then I fold the notes and put it into the box. You are probably wondering why but what I do is I open up the box each morning to read one note a day, and there I find a quote or something else I find inspiring and uplifting.

If you don’t want to write them yourself you can have your friends or familymembers write notes and put them in the box so you’ll read their favorite quotes and motivational notes instead. Right now my box is filled with notes from my friends and family so when I read their quotes and also the name of who wrote it I always smile, seeing the name of my loved ones makes me even happier!! 🙂 I hope you liked this idea! Here are some notes from my box that I have opened so far:

See beyond measures

Life seems so complicated to so many. People feel like the world is unfair and unkind so they give up hope and just sink in to a dark whole. Life is unfair, and that is the ugly truth but life is fair in a way that it’s unfair to everyone. We don’t live in a perfect world and that is the point of dunya, it should be unfair and unperfect in it’s own way. But that is the point and that should make us strive towards the perfect place, paradise. Remember that we are not here for all eternity and we are all just humans. It is easier to think positive than just focusing on the negative. Being negative and unhappy just gives you a mindblock, you miss out on what’s really beautiful and worth seeing.. Stop thinking of the negative and just learn to let go and see beyond measures.

– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤
