Tips for a happier life

The Pursuit of Happiness by Sue Levy

Hey Lovelies,

It’s been a while hey since I’ve been here. I almost forgot that I had this space to pour all my thoughts on.

Today I am 32 and 3 months old (Birthday 26 October). Totally random I know. But still a fact.

The past few week has been pretty interesting. It was filled with happiness, shock, anger, sadness,  jealousy and possibly every other emotion that I can’t remember. It’s all part of being a woman right?

How I got through it the Lord only knows, but what I have learnt is that Joy comes in the morning. Well not the next morning, but in the near future to be exact.

Have you ever been so angry that you just go numb? You refuse to feel anything, so numb you just get through the day with drowning yourself in work so that you do not feel any hurt, pain or disappointment?

But then … then it hits you, the truth. The bloody hurtful truth. (Yoh!)

That is the moment, everything you thought you could suppress just comes out, all at once. It  crushes outer walls you put up for so many days, your dreams, but God knows, it puts things into perspective. That’s the beauty of pursuing your happiness in life is that you will only learn with every disappointment.

They say that

“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”

Things will make sense once you allow the hurt to leave your heart. No one in this world should be allowed to crush your soul, no one in this world should be allowed to use you, no one in this world should be allowed to mess with your feelings and what you have built up after years, No one.

But sadly, they will.

One of my main regrets in life is giving considerable thought to inconsiderable people. Life is tough. But so are you.

Just never forget to pursue your true happiness. All day, everyday. With every breath, with every tear, with every heartbeat.

Lesson from a 20 month old: Actions speak louder than words

I-am-Enough_Just-Pursue-It

 

I had a moment with my daughter on Sunday morning and I wanted to share it with you:

Waking up at 5:30am to watch her favourite cartoon “Dora the Explora” is hardly the way I want to be woken up on a Sunday. But we do it anyway. As we put on another episode she sits all pretty rubbing her eyes and sings along to the opening tune.

I doze off, and I hear a mommy and daddy in the distance. Aliya is awake as can be and the first episode of Dora has completed. Time for the next one. This goes on for about three episodes until I eventually wake up.

I say “Morning my angel” and I get no reply. She is fixated on her Dora episode and has no time for me. I just laugh at her ignoring me and greet my hubby good morning.

Out of the Blue I feel two little hands on my face. Aliya looks at me and turns my head to the left and plants a big fat kiss on my cheek. She then turns my face to the right and does the same.

Best part of the story: She turns my head and I face her and she stares at me. I’m almost intimidated by my 20 month old daughter who is just staring at me. What is this all about?

She then kisses me on the lips and I hear her going “mwah”

I’m speechless. And I’m freaking out at her cuteness. But she doesn’t have time for me anymore. It’s on to the next episode of Dora the Explora.

Right there, in that moment. I got the message. After a week of her being ill and me feeling exhausted. That was her way of saying “Thank You Mommy. You are enough”

Kids can teach us a thing or two of being grateful. I was just taught this by a 20 month old, with no words, only actions and a deep stare of gratitude.When was the last time you made someone else feel like they were enough for you? When was the last time you felt that YOU were enough for you. Think about that.

I’m Feeling Blessed as a mother, I am enough. My little girl said so 🙂

Ps. I love this little girls smile, Thought I’d share this image with you all
