Losing Hope.

Hope is the little voice you hear whisper 'maybe' when it seems the entire world is shouting 'NO.'

Hope is a gift of God. It is deep within us. It is up to us to use this wonderful gift to move forward in life. 
Losing hope will drag you down in life. It makes your situation worse and make you face all the negativity of life. 

Most often, people commit suicide as soon as they realize they are left with no choices. There is not a soul among us who has received everything they wanted in this life. Not even ONE. There are instead people who choose to take the lessons from their broken dreams and move on in life. They move on in life to make their next dream a reality. That is Hope. Go deep within YOU and you will find HOPE.

Have Faith. You must believe that things will work out well in the end. I believe God is in control of my life and he has got good plans for me. No matter how bad the situation turns out to be, I always trust him. Time and again, things turn out to be good, often in a way that I couldn't understand earlier. 

Remind Yourself of your Dreams. Ask yourself why are you doing what you are doing? What is it that you want? How will it feel after you achieve it? This will give you the Strength and Hope to get a step closer to your dreams. 

Be around Supportive People. I don't have to tell you why. You know being around supportive people will encourage you to live your life to the fullest.

Help Others. This way you will shift your focus from Yourself and your situation won't look as bad as it would otherwise.

You have bigger Dreams. You have the heart to achieve them. You are better than you are. GO make it happen.

Three things in life. LEARN, LIVE and HOPE.

Last post of the year. :')
I'm thankful to all the people I've met this year. Each one of you have taught me new lessons and changed my life. Thank you. :)

Little things in life.

Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. - Dr. Seuss

When distressing things happen and when we lose hope, we somehow pick up the pieces not realising our own inner strength. And we gain the benefit of clarity. Clarity to see what actually matters and what life is really about.
I often think of the words spoken by Robin Sharma when I'm stuck in the grasp of negativity cos usually I worry about things which ultimately doesn't matter. 
It's the little things that matter in life.
Like reading a book in the sunshine, laughing out loud with friends, listening to your favourite songs and hanging out with people you love.
The things we actually take for granted are actually the things that brings us joy, even though we don't stop to realise it. 

Cast your mind back in search of those moments when you were happy and content. Relive them and you will find the way to happiness. :)

Little things in my life...

* Reading a book with a hot cup of coffee.
* Turning up my favourite song and singing out loud.
* Laughing until I cry.
* Enjoying a lazy breakfast on a weekend.
* Reminiscing with friends about the good times.
* Visualising a beautiful day in a dark room.
* Insane talks with friends.

What 'little things' make you smile?

A perfect day.

"One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching." ~ Mooie

What would your perfect day look like? You usually know how you don't want your perfect day to look like. But do you really know what you want?

Mostly when I wake up in the morning, I try to visualize what my perfect day would look like and play this beautiful scene in my mind over and over again. It is a powerful stuff and I mostly get the results vividly. 
Writing down your perfect day, describing it and then visualizing it is the best way to have a perfect day. I've been doing this since the past five months and it is just the best exercise I prefer to have a perfect day. 
You increase the intensity of visualization when you add more information to it. 
1. How your perfect day would be like?
2. Where would you be?
3. What would you be doing?
4. Whom are you with?

If you are imagining yourself on one of the Hawaiian beaches. You must get the feeling of yourself walking on the sand, the smell, the sound of the waves and the colours on the chaise lounges. 
Or think like this, if you had the freedom and flexibility to do anything what would you do?
Be specific and try to make it as clear as possible.
You may ask, why is it important to write down your perfect day and visualize. Because when you do so, you make it attainable and you take action towards it. 
You can never stay in the comfort zone forever. As I always say 'You are never in the same position. If you are not moving forward then you are obviously moving backward.'
So try to be uncomfortable and get out of your comfort zone. 

Wanna know how my perfect day would be like?

I'm waking up early in the morning with a beautiful smile on my face. I look at the clock which says '5AM.' I walk towards my balcony and I'm looking at the beautiful garden in front of my house. I feel great and energized because I know this is going to be a great day. I prepare yummy breakfast for myself and wear my workout clothes quickly. I say goodbye to my Mom and leave for a morning walk and workout at a beach nearby. There's no one on the beach except me. The beach welcomes me with a chilled breeze. I feel blessed and thank God for everything he has given me. 
After my daily morning routine I head to a park where my friends are waiting for me. We hug each other and have our pre-morning snack which is loaded with yummy food. We share a bundle of laughter and talks together. 
I walk back home praising the beauty of nature and meet some beautiful people on my way. 
Now, its around 8am and I plan to write something new for my blog. I have a sweet time on my balcony, writing inspiring songs and sharing my beautiful experiences with you guys. 
When its nearly 9am I have Starbucks Coffee and drive to my gym. On my way I stop at 'The Lady - Shopping Complex' to meet my sister Shahmida. She owns the Mall.
At a nearby place I meet my sister Shamsheeda. She seems quite busy with her upcoming magazine for the month.
I then head to my gym where my clients greet me with a broad smile, ready to begin their morning workout. My sister Shaimah is also there among my clients.
After training my beautiful clients I go to a park to refresh myself at 5pm. I meet an inspiring role model of mine. We have an hour talk. I drive back home. I then spend some time with my parents and younger siblings. 
At 7pm I walk to my Makeup Studio which is just near my house. I get back to work. 
After work, it is now 9pm and I am going to a restaurant with my friends, family and my friends' family. We have an amazing dinner. We share our whole day experiences with each other and plan of meeting again soon.
I return back home at around half past ten. Today was a perfect day. I visualize how my next day would look like and then go to sleep with satisfaction. "

Perfect though fragmentary.

'You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.' ~ John Wooden

Beautiful people enter our life through beautiful experiences. Those experiences which have faced hard times. 
Two years back a beautiful girl entered my life. A charming girl, with all her charm in her smile. Her smile was influential. She is practical and modest. This was the day she was born '3rd October.' A day to cherish and celebrate the sixteen years of my beautiful friend. Never did I know this person would become an important element of my life. 
Those memories we shared together can never fade. As bright as it could be till the end of our lives. Even though I never expressed how much you mean to me, you really mean the world to me. :’) I love you dear.

Thank you God for giving me a priceless friend.

September Favourites!


Hey everyone! :)
I'm back with my favs for this month.

September Favs include mostly FOOD. :D It was a busy month, didn't get time to write or do much. So lets begin with my favs for this month! ^_^

Galaxy Chocolate Cake

This cake is yummilicious! I had these every week after school with London Dairy Caramel Ice Cream. 

Baked Potato

I l-o-v-e baked potatoes! Baked potatoes are healthy as well as delicious. They inhibit cancer cell growth and are obviously better than fried potatoes. I love baked potatoes topped with yogurt & Chilli powder.

Neutrogena: Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub

I use it twice a day (morning and evening.) After using this scrub, my face never tightens nor does it feel dry. It gives a beautiful fruity smell that makes me feel refreshed. Try it out and let me know what you think about it. 
Find it on amazon :  Neutrogena : Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub
Silver Latch back Hoop Earring

No one fancies earrings in my family. I'm the only one who loves to keep a huge collection of earrings. :) 

Enchanteur Perfumed Body Lotion

After returning from India, due to climate change my skin got irritated. So I thought of trying this lotion. I use this lotion everyday after a bath. Enchanteur moisturises my skin and helps my skin stay refreshed and healthy the whole day. 

Avalon Muscle Pain Relief Cream

This cream is not exactly a favourite of mine, but the friendliest cream of this month! Comes in handy after my Athletic events. Relieves Muscle pain really very quickly.  

I will soon be writing a review for Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub. :)

Till then,
See ya!

Unexplored Bahrah...

I remember those times when I was in the lower classes and girls used to ask me "You live in Bahrain? How do you come to Jeddah?" :O  and I used to reply jokingly "I come to school everyday in my Dad's Airplane." :D
No one knows well about Bahrah, most of them haven't heard about it at all! 

Bahrah is an industrial area. It is located between Makkah and Jeddah. It takes almost the same time to reach both the places. When we enter Bahrah it looks deserted, but there are many beautiful places to see when you get inside Bahrah. I've been living in Bahrah since I was born. We stay in SRBC (Saudi Red Bricks Company) Compound. There's a Ville, a Park and many Power Plants in our Compound. 
Many people come to set up Camps in the deserted parts of Bahrah. My Dad's Company own a Sand Mine in Bahrah. This Mine, is also a tourist place. I never knew about it before. One of my Mom's friend said that she found a beautiful place on her way to Makkah. And Guess what? It was around this Mine! 

Many people come here for fishing. 

 The Park..

Sidra and Aaliya having fun!

August - India

I left to India on 8th and returned on 31st. Though it was just for 22 days, it was fun there! Read on to know how I spend my days in India... ^_^

#8th It was Eid the day I reached. Shahmida, Aaliya (My Niece ) and Anees Kaka (My eldest bro-in-law) came to pick us at the Airport. Shahmida gave me the book I've always wanted to buy 'Who will cry when you die' by Robin Sharma. ^_^
At home..all my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins came home.. :)

#9th I called Raniya! :) I forgot to take down Sarah's number. :/ So, I couldn't call her, neither Raniya could.
I went to Vengara, thats where my Mom's house is. I also went to my Mom's brother (Abid Kaka)'s new house. His house is just simply awesome. 'A perfect house' I can say. Beautiful and Spacious! *_* 
And Yeah....I got two fans...Rushda and Hiba (My Mom's two sister's daughters.) :P 

#10th I got up early..
Few years back my grandfather used to prepare Biryani when he didn't have any difficulty in walking around. Everyone talks about his amazing Biryani, so I thought of getting the recipe. He couldn't write it down for me in English, so he wrote it in Malayalam. :) I wasn't sure whether I would try the recipe when I reach Bahrah, but all I knew was I would keep the recipe he wrote to my self. :)
I started reading Robin Sharma's book which Shahmida gave me.

#11th I got up at 5AM (Robin Sharma says in his book to get up at 5am), prayed, worked out for 20 minutes, Visualized happy moments and went down for helping Mom. Getting up at 5AM helps us to do the things we love. We usually don't get time when we get up just an hour before we have to go somewhere. When we do the things we love early in the morning it helps us to be happy the whole day. :) 
I wanted to blog badly...

#12th We didn't sleep cos we wanted to go to the Airport to pick Shamsheeda & Ayaan (My Nephew) at 3AM. :)
#13th I made a goal card and made a decision to change myself, doing what people expect from me. :) 
Shamsheeda and Ayaan came. Ayaan remembers me! He's two and a half years old. He calls me 'Maima.' ^_^

#14th Called Raniya, her mom picked up...she said 'Raniya is at Kollam.' 
Shamsheeda made a cake. She is superb at making cakes...Specially Moist Chocolate cakes...
It didn't turn out to look well this time since it was gas oven. We use Electric ovens here in Bahrah, they are better for baking cakes. Still It tasted yummy. :)

#15th Independence Day..
It was Anees Kaka's younger brother's engagement Party.
Back home, Ayaan asked for water. Usually, after he drinks water, if someone doesn't take away the glass he holds, he drops it down. And he did it...poured water on the bed. :D A little extra work for my sister.. :P
Shaimah called... She's a blog addict! She was talking to me about her blog of which I'm a part too..the whole time on phone. :P

#18th I taught Ayaan to sing 'Ooh la la la, Lelo...Ooh la la la Lelo' :D It sounds so cute when he sings.. :) Masha Allah.

#19th Raniya called me...
I painted a scenery which Shamsheeda liked. She took it to place it at her house in Dubai. :)

#20th I had a appointment with Doctor. :/ For allergy..
Asked me to go for a blood test.

#23rd I prepared Chilli Chicken and Fried Rice for dinner. It was really yummy... :)

#25th Shaimah messaged me "Fluffy and Skinny look like black Americans now." Fluffy and Skinny are our Chicks. We left them with our Aunt in Jeddah since there was no one to look after them when we went to India. They love roaming around in their Balcony and so they spoiled their looks. :D

#28th I bought a new bag for school, new sports shoes with which I can run for my races and Turmeric Powder (Kasthoori Manjal) for my body mask.

#29th All my Aunts and cousins from Vengara came home to meet us since we were leaving on 31st. *Had fun*

#30th Shamsheeda, Ayaan, Hafiz Kaka (My Second bro-in-law) and all my aunts and few cousins came home. Had great fun...
My Dad's younger sister prepared 'Andi Putte' and served us. It is something which is made from nuts and tastes nice.
I captured so many pics and videos of everyone, especially my grand parents. I believe we are so lucky, that we live in an age where we can capture the beautiful moments of our life. These are memories that would be re lived in future. :) 

#31st Its always tough to say goodbye to your loved ones... :/
Off to Jeddah. :) {12 pm (India Time)}
Reached Jeddah at 3:30 pm (Saudi Time) and Bahrah at 5pm.

End of Summer Vacation. #BacktoSchool.

How was your vacation? Do tell me the places you visited.. :)

July - Ramadan & Holidays

This was a beautiful month... ^-^

First week of July was as usual...
Raniya left for India few days before Ramadan. Ramadan Started on 10th.  It was kinda tiring the first day of fast and then I got used to it. Shaimah went to her in-laws house ie. also my Aunts house in Jeddah on 12th. After she left we felt kinda empty - empty type at home. I started reading 'You Can Win' by Shiv Khera for the second time to understand it even more better. When we read books again and again, we learn more and more from it or we understand something which we didn't understand properly the previous time we read.
Its really an amazing book, if you guys love inspiring books then go check it out.
What I learnt?

* How to maintain a positive personality.
* Winners don't do different things, they do things differently.
* How to build a positive attitude.
*The importance of interpersonal skills.

I believe I would be a positive one by the end of this vacation. :)
I was really happy to see by blog 'Fatness to Fitness' cross 6,000 views! :) It all because of you guys...Thanks you so much! ^-^

#13th, I was really worried about completing Qura'n at least once this Ramadan.
I was almost done with my wall decoration. I was inspired to decorate my room wall by my sister Shamsheeda. Her's was really beautiful... I will share the pics of my wall decor in my next post. :)
I was simply converting date of birth of my family members from Gregorian to Hijri Calendar and I realized, according to the Hijri Calendar I was already 17! :O

#15th July, I thought of calling my friend Sarah, since it was a week back that I called her. I was also wondering what Raniya was doing in India. :P
I love Cats/Kittens! And Mom told me, that there was one in my aunts house. I wanted to go their so badly...just to see the cat! :D
And we went there! on #18th... To pick Shaimah.
Gawwdd....the cat was sooo cute. Played with it. It even licked my finger..hehe...
And we went to Sharafiyah that day, which kinda irritated me cos it is always so crowded there and those men who have an annoying habit of staring at girls. >.<

#22nd, I had a pretty good day. I called Sarah...she can entertain people anytime! :D She's like a mood booster for me. :P

 #24th, At 5 a.m I thought of writing in my diary which I actually call a 'Writers Corner book' and Ouch! I got a paper cut, they are just so painful... :/

#25th, I and Shaimah, we made a page on Facebook, You can check it out here - 'Into the Gloss'
My both bro-in-laws (Anees Kaka & Muhammad Kaka) came home and we were all busy. :)
Sarah left for India.

#28th, I bought a new cute purple bag, named it 'Purple Bug.' I will post a pic of it along with my wall decor.
So that's how July was for me, what about you guys? Share your beautiful experiences in July in the comments below. :)

How to Talk with Confidence.

This is a problem faced by most of us. Read on to know how to speak confidently for Seminars or any public speaking competitions.

When you talk with confidence people change the impression they formed of you and believe that you are confident and when you  talk while being shaky because you're afraid that people will judge you in a wrong way then people will confirm the bad belief they had about you. 
You need to talk confidently in order to break the cycle with disregard to your worries about people judging you, then the results turn out to become positive.
Once you feel good about yourself you will start talking with confidence. So learn to love yourself

The important three tips:
1. Find out what you don't like about yourself and change it.
2. Once you feel good you will start talking with confidence.
3. People will start forming a positive impression about you.

How do I stop my negative thoughts?

This is a question I've been asked many times. The answer is simple.
How do I stop my negative thoughts? You plant good thoughts!

When you try to stop thinking negative, you are focusing on what you don't want - negative thoughts - and you attract an abundance of them. They will never vanish when you focus on them. The "stop" part is irrelevant. The negative thoughts become your focus.  It doesn't matter if your trying to stop thinking negative or controlling them or pushing them away, the result comes the same. Your focus is on negative thoughts, and by the law of attraction, your inviting more of them.

The truth is always simple and it is always easy. To stop negative thoughts, just plant good thoughts. Deliberately plant good thoughts! You plant good thoughts by making it a daily practice, appreciate all the things in your day. Appreciate your health, your car, your home, your family, your job, your studies, your teachers, your friends, your surroundings, your meals, your pets and the magnificent beauty of the day. Compliment, praise and thank all the things and people. Each time you say 'Thank you' you have a good thought. As you plant more and more good thoughts,  the negative thought starts to deplete  Why? Because your focus is on good thoughts and what you focus on you attract.
So NO focus on negative things. Don't worry about them, if any do come, make light of them, shrug them off, and let them be your reminder to be positive.

The more good thoughts you plant a day, the faster your life will be transformed. Deliberately thinking good thoughts is exactly like planting seeds. As you think of the good, your planting good seeds in you and the Universe will transform those seeds into garden of paradise.  How will the garden of paradise appear? As your life! :)

In short, Discover you destiny! Might take sometime cos I'm not yet free. My elder sister Shamsheeda just came from Dubai recently. Busy..Busy...but, I will be posting it least by the end of this month.

The empty feeling.

The feeling of emptiness is like emotional hunger where you are hungry for something you can't have or get. Depression is one of the strongest reason that can make you feel empty and the combination of both depression and emptiness can be really annoying. You need to figure out your unsatisfied need that is causing this feeling to overcome it. As everyone's unique, each person has a different reason for his / her empty feeling. Most of the people who have the empty feeling inside them have a self understanding problem. Like, if you know that you failed to reach your goal then you would say you are disappointed not empty. In other words, people use this word emptiness to describe a feeling they can't understand. So, gaining self understanding is the most important step in dealing with emptiness and all unwanted emotions. 
You can gain self respect by adhering your values, be brave, never escape and by keeping promises. Keeping promises: Not only the promise you give to others, but also the promises that you give to yourself.

The last fifteen years.

Learning new things are always exciting. I've learned a lot in the past fifteen years from the first step into this world till what I’m doing right now. 
This year unlike the previous year’s taught me quick lessons and brought new people.

'Just these two months and everything will be different.’ This is ringing around. Everyone's moving on. Things aren't working the same here. Mind echos ‘How and why did things not work the way I wanted..?’ Why do I care more about the past than what I really want. 

Sweet Sixteen now, yeah one month passed. I've been waiting for things to happen and did nothing. And now, when I know I could have changed, nothing can be done. 
Desires change each day like I see new dreams every day. Yesterday is different from today. Yeah, that's how mind works now.

The last fifteen years...
All the insane, nostalgic, cheerful, strange and weird moments that will be missed. I never cared about what girls meant when they said they are leaving or when they feared about getting or choosing streams in 11th.
A moment when I realize, I  could have done so many things before and can’t do anything now. 
Shahmida said years back ‘If only I could freeze this moment right now.’  I wish the same!

When nothing can be done. 
I wanna ESCAPE.

Can't take it anymore.

There are always going to be some bad times. Times when you feel like there’s no one who can help you and you’re convinced that there’s no hope too. I know how bad it feels when things go out of your control and when you can’t take it anymore. Such emotions result in a bad feeling that many of you can’t tolerate.

Next time when you have this 'I can't take it anymore' moment ask yourself this question, 
Why is my mind constantly sending these bad signals? Why can’t it just suppress them?
It can’t, cos that’s your mind’s way of asking you to take action. Emotions are signals sent by your mind asking you to take action. When your mind finds that you are doing something that you absolutely hate, it sends you these 'bad feeling' signals hoping that you would respond by taking some action. But, most of the people do nothing and as a result their mind finds no other solution but to make the 'bad feelings' more intense until they reach a point where they can't take it anymore. Doing something that you hate for years are actions that tell us, how our society taught us to accept sufferings and stop responding to our inner feelings even if we feel bad.
You don't have to take any hasty decisions like suddenly quitting your job or ending your relationship with someone, you just have to think of a long term plan that can help you to change the situation you can't take anymore. 
Don't ignore the signals sent by your mind because the others are ignoring theirs. When you know that everyone is suffering because of their own choice, you should make a choice whether you want to join them or you want to be different. If you wanna stop suffering, you need to take an action. Sufferings will stop when you take an action and not by waiting. Waiting will only make you get depressed.
So, it's up to you! What do you want? Suffer like the others? or a change?

Loving yourself.

"Love yourself, for if you don't, how can you expect anybody else to love you?" ~ Susan Lipsett

We need to love ourselves before loving others. If you wanna experience true intimacy, you need to be taught how to love yourself first.
As much as we want to control our own destiny, the humbling truth is that sometimes the only way to learn self-love is by being loved precisely in the places where we feel most unsure and most tender. When this happens, we feel free to love others in a deeper way. Positive self-talk cannot replicate this, it is a gift of intimacy and not of will power.
Self-esteem and self-love are issues that are often related together. If you suffer from low esteem, it is possible that the root cause is a case of insufficient self-love. And so you find it difficult, to find that little bit of love for yourself. I know, it will make you feel unnatural at the start cos your mind has been ingrained with self sabotaging thoughts for a long time.
When you don't love yourself, you're basically telling the others that you are unworthy or undeserving of any love or positive outcomes.
Learning to love yourself starts with making a conscious decision, an intention to become happy and lead a fulfilled life. When you don't love yourself and suffer from low self-esteem, it is almost impossible to reach the potential that you really have. 

Few things you can do to love yourself:

01. Eliminate self criticism.
02. Trust yourself or never lie to yourself.
03. Forgive yourself.
04. Learn to be kind.
05. Think positive.
06. Boost your self confidence.
07. Look after your body.
08. Express gratitude.
09. Have fun.
10. Relax

Don't ignore your Problems, Solve them.

'Ignore problems, your life will be the same forever or may even get worse but, never better.'  SharkRules

Problems! Something that God has gifted to make your life better. Problem that you create by yourself in your life is something really different and it's up to you to make problems temporary or permanent in your life. In the modern world, complicated life with many breakups is kinda common and it's even called 'COOL' at times. It's hard to find someone with accepted standards of respectable and moral behaviour in other words 'decent people' OR someone who understands others. There are only few people who think about what's happening in others life. I am one of them, that's what made people like me. Recently I met someone who wanted me to change. She wanted to make me understand how to change with the developing world. She said 'The present generation is totally different compared to the previous one....blah, blah, blah!' Since she was an elderly woman I couldn't say anything against her, while she kept on encouraging the present generation. At times it difficult to make people understand.
Since last two years I've been changing myself and learning how to face problems, but each time a problem comes in, it blows my head, but I solve it somehow. That's what made me love problems! Right now, I'm tired of all the bad times in 2012...Cluster meet >.< , Sports and all the other competitions which made me get second instead of the first that I usually got! 4 X 400m, 400m, 4 X 100m and 200m race : 2nd position! :/ My third eldest sister, Shaimah before leaving to India told me 'when you get first in something, the next time if you get second or third you'll be disappointed!' and that's what happened to make 2012 a bad year. :/ Shamsheeda, my second eldest sister told me 'You'll be disappointed right now, but after 2-3 years this will be your past and you won't even care about it. All you have to be worried about is your studies cos studies will cover up your future.'
I'm trying to forget everything, but when you are making yourself forget something, you spend the whole day thinking about it. Yeah! That's what is happening with me.
'Mending broken hearts' seems no more interesting because most of them think that I'm irritating others more than helping others, maybe it's because I don't get appreciated for what I do anymore. Nowadays I get more complains about 'Mending broken hearts' than appreciation. What people need to understand about 'Mending broken hearts' or 'MBH' is, when i'm working on a relationship, there's nothing like I'll patch them up forever or they can rely on me the whole time chilling, that was the problem with #SarZah. While working on #17, Aara told me 'Shark, Please don't change back to the old Shark.' Was I really changing or have I changed? cos this is what I never wanted to happen, taking me back to the past! The future must be better than the past otherwise it means that you haven't learned anything from the past and yeah, learn from the past but don't live in the past.
Presently the new problem that has come up is similar to the ones that I had 2 years back but, still it is on top of my head. My eldest sister, Shahmida recently showed me an easy way to make problems under your control and I think that really helps. It was like 'give a number to the level of your problem. eg: Level 5 for your problem. Make yourself in level 1 if you think the problem is over your head. Now, change the way you look at your problem, in a positive way. You'll find yourself in level 3. Repeat the same again and again, then you'll find yourself in level 7. Now you are at level 7 and your problem is at level 5. Same problem, but it's now under your control!'
Easy isn't it? Then it's time to follow it. The main reason behind making this blog 'Mirror of Desire / Erised' is to make people understand others, themselves and make their life easy instead of a complicated one. Most of the people don't understand themselves, they don't know what they actually want in their life and when people don't understand others, misunderstandings grow. Remember one thing 'When nails grow, you cut your nails not fingers. Similarly, when misunderstanding grows, cut your ego, not your relationship.'
I've changed the way I look at things and it's helping me. You must try it, at least once! I told you about me not because I want people to know about my life but because when you read about solving problems on different websites, you won't be interested in solving yours cos you don't know whether that's true or not, when you read it here on my blog, you'll understand that problems can really be solved and the reason why you'll think like that is it's from someone's personal experiences.
Hope you make a beautiful change in your life! :)
I wrote a song 'Stand out' in October 2012, which my friend Akshita really liked, she kept on saying 'Shurooq please publish it!' I'll post it here soon, most probably my next post.
