Sunsets and Sunrises!

Beauty

Photo by me ūüôā

So many sunsets and sunrises. Seventeen years that passed – lovely and not lovely. A combination of so many stories that can teach me so much!

A person’s new year is basically on¬†their birthday and that comes just once a year ūüėČ !! Time to realize how much happened as¬†their¬†new year approaches, make resolutions 9if you’re like me) and review past summaries!

22nd December is always my favorite day, but this time it was some tough! Oh but thanks God the world didn’t end the day before it ūüėÄ

Each sunset and each sunrise brings out new hopes, new dreams, and new goals!

………………………………………………..‚ô•………………………………………..

So you all celebrating winter holidays? Have tons of fun!

Btw, Pakistan just won against India right now ūüėČ (for cricket fans out there)

Here, a great quote for today:

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.

Are you happy?

How long can a person remain happy if he/she receives a happy news, good grades, great time with friends or family, or any sort of happiness bucket?
How long can he actually live in that state of excitement and how long in your view does the timely happiness prevails?

The Importance of Sacrifice- and Eid Mubarak!

First of all, a very happy Eid Mubarak to all Muslims out there, living in any part of the world! In all the nooks and corners, all cities and districts, all these big big and small small countries, have a blissful and meaty Eid! ūüėÄ

This Eid, specifically known as Eid-ul-Adha gives the soul message of ¬†‘sacrifice‘. And sacrifice in all ages of life is so drastically important! And not only is it important, it is really really difficult! Ever faced the taste of it? When you have to let go of your favorite belonging for someone you love very much? And if you don’t learn to sacrifice, life gets way harsh.

To sacrifice something for someone, only one thing helps:

That the someone is more important than the something!

And a lot of love!

Humor that hides your sorrow

Humor is that quality which covers or hides your sorrow.. I don’t know¬†whether¬†you agree to this, but I believe it.

Remember what Charlie Chaplan said:

I love to walk in rain because nobody can see that I am crying.

“A comedian is not a man who says funny things,” Ed Wynn once said. “A comedian is one who says things funny. For instance, a comedian is not a man who opens a funny door ‚ÄĒ a comedian is one who opens a door in a funny way.”

When one talks happily, makes people laugh, wears a continuous, cheery smile, it means he/she is hiding something badly. But that also means, that the person REALLY needs someone who could look into her eyes and understand the depth of circumstances she is going through. 

A LESSON IN PSYCHOLOGY:

WHEN A PERSON LAUGHS TOO MUCH EVEN ON STUPID THINGS, BE SURE THAT THE PERSON IS LONELY DEEP INSIDE.

(Read some great quotes here:

Attracting Positivity~

Hey people!

I had been going through some state of desperation, and desolation, and it was not satisfied until I cried my heart out yesterday!

So its very true that once you give permission for your tears to roll down, they take with them your sorrows. And generally, leave you feeling light.

We keep our tears with ourselves thinking it as a protective shield:  that keeps with us and holds back our fears, our disappointments. But the truth is: that as long as we force back our worries in, we cant let positivity out.

See, there is this misery with you. And you feel like its all over for you. And its such a big loss, that it seems nothing can fill it up EVER again! So what actually happens is, that when such a situation occurs, we somehow begin to promise ourselves that we are never going to let it go. And without even knowing it, we keep hold on our promise so tightly, that we don’t realize what we are doing with ourselves. And thus, we fail to feel the remaining beauty of the world.

There had been two times in my life when I cried the worst. Ofcourse I have cried many a times before and after that because well, I am a girl!;) And I am pretty sensitive!! But the worst two times were:

  1. When my old Grandmother died. (May her soul rest in peace.Ameen)
  2. When my parents went abroad for a month.

Both of these, as I now observe, have been due to losses. When a loved one is far, may it be temporary(case 2) or permanent(case 1), its just unbearably sad. But when something is unbearably sad, one must get closer to God.

When you trust Allah, He soothes out all your ways.

-Trust

-Trust

Secondly, when you attract positivity, it makes it way to you. When you let failure overcome you, it actually coils itself over you. When you know you are bad at it, you just get to be bad at it. When you know nothing will be alright, what has the world got to be right then?

But this is just too hard. But of course not impossible. Anything that can come to a human’s mind HAS to be possible. Because it came in that mind.

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.

Farewell 2011: Happy 2012!!!!!

Greetings!

2011 was a beautiful year for me. Never had I been so related to something like a ‘year’ or a ‘month’ as I feel now. I experienced love, hatred, tears, cheer, fights, fame, gain, loss , lessons, hopes, and unforgettable moments!! I discovered myself. (atleast I tried to) and deaths. And I discovered a number of great blogs!!!!

2011 was a great blogging year for me! I got a total of 26 followers, among which 25 are from this year only..!
I pay them huge thanks and I hereby tell them how fond I am of their blogs too;)

December‚ô•Surprises and Rewards..!

My December is so full of surprises and good rewards, that i have start believing that I am getting pretty cool gifts even before my birthday this month;)

This year is ending so smoothly, and as if it loves me, its leaving some cheerful presents for me:)

Right now I am going to have chocolate and nuts ice-cream, and you know what? ¬†It’s so freezingly cold here that I have got a severe pain in my right leg:( {but I think i was about to tell the ‘good-happenings-of-nowadays’.

Okay, so my two bestfriends (who were my school friends) came to my place on Friday…(wait, the¬†ice cream’s¬†so “cold”, not “cool”!) Alright, so i had SUCH A WONDERFUL time with my friends!!!!!!!! We are going to cherish it forever!!! We had lunch here, shared talks, chatted non-stop, got crazy and made memories!! One of them is together with me at college(Though she is in an entirely different faculty, but we do get chances to hang around, together.) while the other one was studying in a different college, so we had a lot to tell each other!

Plus, I made cold coffee for us, which we LOVED so much! i mean, it not only had such a cool blend of brown, but it also tasted AWESOME):P

Thirdly, yesterday I went to my aunt’s house, together with my siblings and mother to spend our day and PARTY hard!! And I had a¬†FABULOUS¬†time with my new-born (actually, 3 months old:) )cousin and we played a lot:) And I had my fave Macaroni Noodles with delicious meat and veggie topping, and¬†tomato¬†sauce on it…Plus Qorma. (which I suppose you don’t know of<sigh> )

Here, meet Bilal:

MashaAllah!!‚ô•‚ô•

And did I forget I went to shopping today?! Or should i call it window shopping only?! Because whatever I wished to purchase, my mom was like “NO WAY!”

Last, but not the least, I got an incentive of complementary classes for 2 subjects because I had got a 90+ in my prev. exams! So, that becomes a happy ending of my post:)

I Thank you Allah, and I thank you people.

Sadness Tracks Happiness: Emotions.

lazy_summer_afternoon

Sadness tracks Happiness.

PROVED.

I came home today, and I was pretty excited for no reason…I laughed, and played, and shouted, and enjoyed. Later, I was trapped in that depressive mode of mine:

And I began humming sad tunes.

Sketching.

Sitting.

And pondering.

Why does that always happen? Why does sadness track happiness? Why is sadness powerful?

My Blog Is my Best Friend..!

 

People don’t understand you? Do they? That is, except your mom, and ¬†sis, and your best friend? Or maybe your teacher too? (oops, that is a lot of them!!) But well, they don’t exactly understand everything! They might get tired of listening to your ‘rubbish talks’ and they might find it boring to listen about ‘your stupid embarrassing moments’ again and again?!! Right?

THaT IS WHy i LOVE MY bLOG!!!

You see, you can put¬†everything¬†in your blog..Its your Hyde park! It won’t scold you, get bored, or forget you! It will always be there for you!(But yes, you can get caught if the person who-must-not-read-this, reads this:P)

And what makes me write this is what happened a couple of days before…

  1. I got 92% in my Final Exams, Alhamdulillah:D
  2. I was pleased to have so many calls, messages and Facebook comments to congratulate me.
  3. The same night, a very¬†embarrassing¬†scene happened. I was waiting for my father to come home with a¬†CHOCOLATE¬†FUDGE CAKE that he had promised me, when the bell rang! I rushed towards the door, and without even asking who it was, opened it wide! With a long rant of “ASSALAMOALAIKUM!!!”. Our building’s gatekeeper was standing in front of me, very surprised.
  4. I had the MOST DELICIOUS choc fudge cake everrrr!!!:D
  5. I found out that a choc. fudge cake could be a great anti-depressant and mood-fixer!!!
  6. I slept well.

Now you see, I wanted to tell everything to anyone! And I realized that I could, you know, paint all my thoughts in my randomlyabstract blog!

[update Aug, 2014: Wow. I can’t believe I wrote that. But I remember the fudge cake and the embarrassing salaam. And the celebrations waghera. But maaaan.;_; ]

Set Upset..!

Last few days I was quite upset and more than that,”confused!”…Yes seriously,and it was because of the thousand thoughts occupying my mind…You get it or not but it was somewhat like this that Half of my million thoughts were stored in the back cupboard of my mind to be thought and thought over..Memories to remember,points to shed tears on…,scenes to be embarrased at and thing to laugh at..!Ooh and yes,future plans and present tensions!!All had just disturbed my set of mind and made me “upset!” I had less time to think for what is going on and what had happened than to move the curtain of back mind,giving it place to crowd my already crowded mind…..

Well,life is all that circular disturbance,its just how you treat it..It will always welcome you with offending truths and bitter realities so why not put a role that accepts realities and move on with it..?(I know thats VERY difficult but why not just try?) Why not forgive someone instantly and why not PRETEND TO BE HAPPY FOR ALL THOSE PRETENDING TO BE HAPPY OUT THERE?

No life is perfect and nobody is born happy..But everybody is born with the ability of being happy and spreading happiness.Lets do that!!

Eid Mubarak!

Variety of piquant,scrumptious and finger-licking dishes take place of the Ramzan’s special fried items,samosas and rolls and the beautiful moon announces the event of Eid!!!

The blissful day of Eid is a blessing of God for all Muslims who fasted in the month of Ramadhan.This is the day for which everybody is excited,from toddlers to wrinkled-poor to rich!This is the day when all discriminations,all woes and worries and enemities are forgotten and all hearts sing merrily-the praise of Almighty!

Yesterday Eid-ul-fitr was celebrated with full swing in all Muslim countries!The beatitude and euphoria makes each heart happy.Hugs and caresses are spread to deliver the message of love!the night before Eid,popularly known as Chand Raat is the night when Almighty judges our deeds and bleeses people who made Him and His people contened during Ramadhan!On this night,there is a huge traffic in shops where women tend to buy elegant,beautiful dresses,fragnant perfumes and appealing jewellery!

My eid day started after Fajr when I along with my sisters tidied up our home.Every nook and corner was cleaned and decorated.Then we dressed ourselves beautifully and enjoyed wonderful sweet dishes.sheer khurma¬†¬†and kheer are special sweet-dishes for eid!Giving of EIDI was the most wonderful part! The television and media kept all Muslims informed of the flood that had hit Pakistan so that we could share their tears and keep them happy,like us!Afterwards we went to our neighbours to wish them the blissful day (and receive eidi!!).Later I will goto a party at¬† my grandmother’s house and I hope I will enjoy alot there!

EID MUBARAK TO YOU ALL!
