Best advice I can share. Let’s always remember to be thankful and be grateful that everyday as long as we are alive, we always have the opportunity to change the bad stuff and make good decisions. Forget all the trashy part, negatives, and fears. Life is temporary, show must go on and have no fear, enjoy life and always be kind to everyone. Stop complaining, it doesn’t make sense at all to complain about life.

I pray for the whole world to have peace and healing to all people in pain.

Please add your comments and share your best advice.

Thank you and keep smiling. PEACE!

First best advise I’d like to share is “Believe in your dreams”.  I learned this advise from my mother. It’s free to make dreams and it’s okay to believe that someday they will come true.

I always dream that someday I’ll be able to travel outside my native country. I even set a time that at the age of 25, it will happen. When I was 24, I applied to get a passport,  it was my first time to apply, and I have no definite destination, but my purpose was that I want to be ready when I reach 25 I’ll be traveling. Then opportunity came, a teaching job abroad, I was able to travel before my 26th birthday.

I realized that with strong faith and good intention, dreams do come true. So don’t limit your dream, have faith and keep believing that all your dreams and wishes will come true.

This “Best Advise” project is all about sharing best advise. I’ll be featuring some of my friends to share inspiring stories or reflections and share their best advise. Once a month, I’ll post one best advise.

Hope everyone will enjoy and will find this blog helpful.





Keep yourself sane

I’d like to thank my best friend, Riah and I’m proud to feature her email here in my blog.

Hope everyone will learn from these suggestions, because I implemented all of them and found it very effective and I know these suggestions may not be new to you but it will be a good reminder.

The following are her words:

But somehow you can divert those stress and negative emotions and  keep yourself sane and have the oozing positive outlook in life. I suggest you to do the following:
1. Meditate at least an hour a day.
2. Try to have an organizer to put on your plans and dream and keep reading them every night.
3. Pamper yourself like going to a Spa or Saloon at least once a month.
4. Take a warm shower before you go to sleep to wash out the negative energy on your body.
5. Nurture a passion that you really like most may it be gardening, crocheting, or baking.
6. Make a delicious food at home.. or experiment a dish and share it your family. 
7. Drink 3 liters of water a day to rejuvenate yourself and get that fresh feeling each day.
8. Drink at least 3 cups of green tea while working
9. Read a book that is interesting and worthy.
10. Talk and read books to your daughter and create stories that will instill values to her.. (this is what i did to my daughter to let her understand the good values). 
11. Have a bonding moment with your daughter if not everyday but at least spare a quality time with her.
12. Talk to your husband about life plans and aspirations and share to him what makes you really happy.
13. Just share a casual talk with your mom-in-law. you can talk about things that interest you both.

Climbing up High

Hiking or Climbing the mountain is always one my favorite outdoor activities . It was a wonderful experience because I’m with my husband and daughter. When we reached to the top of the Stone Mountain, I felt so great, it’s like winning in an amazing race.

In my reflection, in our journey called life, we always wanted to aim high and when we do our best to go up, we don’t look back, even though it’s hard to go up, we should not give up.

I am thankful to Allah for always giving me the strength to endure the trials in life. Allah, the Exalted, stated in the Quran in Surah Baqarah:

“We will test you with something of fear, and hunger and loss of wealth, and souls and vegetation. And give glad tidings to those who have patience. Those who if in any difficulty or trial, or tribulation occurs to them or happens to them, they say: ‘Verily We are from Allah and to Allah we return.’ They are those who will receive prayers from their Lord and Mercy and it is those who are guided.”

Hope you’ll enjoy the view:
