My quote for the day!

Spoken word is my world of escape, where words are as powerful as weapons, and weapons are as worthless as pennies- Amani Delbani

Count your blessings not your problems...

STOP EVERYTHING YOUR DOING...

Put down that pencil, move that phone away from you, sign off from your Facebook, turn off that music, stop chewing your gum, stop thinking about your day, wait, stop complaining...

TAKE A MOMENT, ONE SIMPLE MOMENT. STOP THINKING, BREATHE IN AND OUT. RELEASE THE TENSION FROM YOUR BODY...

Feels better no?

Now think of one think that makes you grateful...
Some stranger might have smiled at you on your way to work, someone could have complemented you on your hair or on the way you dressed, you have received wonderful news from someone, you have completed  everything on your to-do list, its sunny outside, the sun is bright, it smells good in the room your in, someone passed by to tell you hello... 

Reflect for a moment; your healthy? Check. You have a beautiful family or friends that love you? Check. You live in a country of Freedom? Check. You don't fall asleep to the sound of bombardments? Check. You have legs, arms, feet, fingers, eyes to see with, ears to hear with, a tongue to speak with, a brain to use? Check. You have an education? Check. In this cold weather you are going home to a cozy environment  a bed with blankets and pillows and warmth? Check. You had a full meal today, or just a little snack, anything at all to eat? Check.

Then you have every reason to be GRATEFUL. 


Think twice before complaining you have it WAY better than a lot of people.

life..

EVERYTHING AND I MEAN EVERYTHING IN LIFE HAPPENS FOR A REASON. YOU GREET PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE FOR A REASON, YOU LOSE FRIENDS, GAIN FRIENDS, BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE, MAKE UP WITH SOMEONE, LOSE SOMETHING THAT WAS IN YOUR POSSESSION, FIND SOMETHING YOU NEVER EXPECTED TO FIND AGAIN, HEARTACHE, HEART BREAK, LOVE, FRIENDSHIP... & THE LIST GOES ON...

 EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. THAT'S WHY ITS CALLED LIFE: DON'T DWELL, EMBRACE AND LET IT BE, FOR JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS AT ITS WORSE IF YOU WERE TO TURN THE NEXT PAGE YOU WOULD SOON REALIZE THAT THE BRIGHTEST SIDE OF ALL, IS JUST IN THE SHADOW OF ALL THAT IS EVIL - Amani

L: LIVE
I: IN
F: FAITH
E: EVERYDAY

Rest in Peace.






It'll be exactly one year tomorrow. Why did you have to go? Making it hard to hold back the tears that I try to fight as I swallow. Why must life end, taking away the one's we love our dear friend.  It breaks my heart. I remember I cried so much that night.  You dying was in no way right. You left us so soon. But I know when I look up to the sky I see your beautiful face amongst the stars and the moon. You will never be forgotten, you will be missed. I loved you yesterday, I love you today, and I will love you tomorrow.  I'll let my heart heal, but nothing will ever erase the sorrow. Rest in Peace my beautiful angel. 


Love...

Get over the fact that sometimes you are just someone's interest because they are bored. So they got nothing better to do with their time than to play with your emotions. One second your thinking to yourself; that person is really interested in me, and than the next second your doubting it. "Never assume that someone likes you by their sweetness, sometimes you are just an option when they're bored." - anonymous 

Don't settle as an option, as a backup, because the minute she/he's back in the picture your out of it. So warn yourself before your heart gets broken. Love for some is a game, an opportunity to toy with your emotions, to draw you close and the minute you have your back turned, the string is cut. Goodbye. 

Don't let your heart get the best of you, because when it comes to love, your heart needs direction; and that's when your reasoning plays it's role. Same way you need a designated driver when your not mentally and possibly physically aware of your present situation, the same way your heart needs a designated driver, your reasoning, when your blindsided by your emotions. Remember, you may just be in love with the idea of having the attention in which someone makes you feel special, liked, loved. But that doesn't make it real. 

Have faith, your beautiful, your smart, intelligent, confident, brilliant, passionate, perseverant, determined creative, educated, don't you dare sell your self short. Don't chase, expect to be chased. Desperate isn't a pretty look on anyone. Be confident; carry yourself like a Queen and you will attract your King.

My AHA MOMENT.



Today, I felt like sharing something that I am very grateful for and that I felt like sharing with you. It is my turn to pay it Forward. Ever heard of the book called the : "Secret". Well the principal of the book is that each and everyone of us is the "Commander in Chief of our life. We control the universe as we please. The things we want in life, we are the ones bringing them into our lives, yet we are also to blame for the things we bring in our life that we do not want. We are the center of our universe. We may have lost some good friends, we may have argued with our loved ones, fallen in love and gotten our heart broken, we may have judged someone before getting to know them, we may have done many things we are not happy about, but here is the thing; life is as hard and complicated as we make it, and yet it can be as simple and beautiful if we choose that option.
So here is my AHA moment: let go of the things that have caused you pain, anger, heartbreak, fear and anxiety, and start welcoming the simple yet beautiful things in life. Never stop counting your blessings no matter what. One last thing I would like to share with all of you is something my sister constantly reminds me of everyday 
" DON'T WAIT FOR THE PERFECT MOMENT, TAKE THE MOMENT AND MAKE IT PERFECT."
