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.
– Rumi

I can feel it in the air!

I love how much I could feel the spring vibes this week, a little rain, sunshine and nice breeze. It made me so excited every morning on my way to work. Today was the best! ♥ Me and my friend went out for a walk and took some pictures and videos! The sun was shining so bright and it was so much fun not freezing to death 🙂 Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤

Stand with Syria Armband #Charity

To my swedish readers:
Jag har länge velat göra något för att hjälpa våra bröder och systrar i Syrien. Även om jag inte kan ändra på konflikten och få fred i landet så vill jag ändå hjälpa de som påverkas utav kriget.

Som många av er vet har jag, med hjälp av några underbara vänner, fixat armband som jag nu säljer. Allt som samlas in går oavkortat till den aktuella insamlingen, som är till Israa Abdalis humanitära hjälpverksamhet, STAND WITH SYRIA.  Stand with Syria har samlat ihop pengar och köpt olika saker som de syriska flyktingarna är i störst behov av just nu. SWS  fyller containers och skickar ner olika nödvändigheter. De tillgodoser grundläggande behov av skydd, mat och medicinsk utrustning m.m. De är super duktiga på att uppdatera och dela med sig bilder samt videos om processen, för att visa er att hjälpen når fram! Av dessa flertal, underbara, anledningar har jag valt att donera det som samlas in till SWS.

Hur beställer man?
Meddela mig via instadirect (instagram @hijabiwithlove) eller mejla mig på 🙂

Hur mycket kostar ett armband?
Ett armband säljs för 50 kr MEN man får själv bestämma om man vill betala mer än så, inte för att jag tycker att mina armband är mer värda, utan för att det handlar om själva donationen samt hjälpen! 🙂 50 kr eller 50+.

Vill du följa SWS olika projekt samt arbete så kan du följa de via instagram: @stand_with_syria.

A day by the castle ♥

Me and Zora went to the most gorgeous place yesterday. The weather was absolutely amazing and we decided to visit ‘Drottningholm slott’, a castle in Drottning. It was warm but windy at the same time,  we brought snacks with us and just roamed around. We were there for a little more than two hours but felt like 30 minutes lol. It has been warm these past four days which has been awesome(!) because it had rained and been cloudy for more than two weeks. Basically since I got home from Morocco. So I have finally been able to enjoy Stockholm a little bit these past days BUT… now it’s cloudy and rainy again as I’m writing this post. I’m headed out now but do come back and visit my blog again for my (last) Dubai vlog, Morocco and Spain vlogs (from this summer vacay) that will start rolling in here! 🙂

Swedish summer – 50 shades of grey.

– Pictures taken from my bedroom window. 

These pictures literally describes how the “summer” has been here. I think we got three hot summer days and the rest of the summer contained of 50 shades of clouds and then rain. It has to be the coldest summer in a really (!) long time. During Ramadan I was like ‘woop woop’ but before Ramadan and now, it gets a bit dull, like today. I’ve been like a zombie all day long. I tried to go out, went shopping and bought some sushi (yummy 🙂 ) but at the end of the day it was a dark and cloudy day and my body was like “okey lets turn into a dark cloud as well”. But alhamdulillah for everything, people have literally been dying of the heat this year… SubhanaAllah.. So I should not be complaining, right?
Hope everyone else is having a great summer so far!

– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤
