How to Love Yourself?

This is a question that many people tend to ignore. How to love yourself? It’s not something that you can habitually attain, but just like everything and anything else, you must learn to do it.

Loving yourself isn’t as hard as you think it is. It’s not like you have to stay hours in the gym just to get that perfect figure or spend hours in the kitchen to perfect that dish. No, all it takes is a simple mindset and some tweaks in your daily life that will make you love yourself no matter what people say.

  1. Always set an Inspiring Goal – Because without goals, you won’t have the motivation or purpose to live an enjoyable and successful life. You’ll always end up feeling down and we can’t have that kind of negative energy if we want to live a good and happy life. Therefore, always set an inspiring goal such as; ‘Learning how to Drive’, or, ‘Publishing a Poetry Book’, or, ‘Becoming a successful Blogger/Vlogger,’ These kinds of goals will set you apart from the rest of your family and friends and you will also be thrilled to continue to pursue your dreams.
  2. Ask yourself from time to time; What do you love about yourself? Surely, there must be something that you love about yourself? For example, your nose. You might have a pretty nose, or your face, your eyes or even your arms or booty. Perhaps, there’s something about your nature that you love? You might be kind, caring, supportive, a good listener. It can be anything but it’s up to you to find out what it is that you love about yourself? Always ask this question at the beginning or end of the day so that you can strive to do more good and be someone’s perfect role model.
  3. It’s now time to Thank Your Body because unlike many other who are suffering out there, you don’t have cancer or other illnesses that makes you look sick (May God Heal them too) You’re healthy, you’re beautiful and even if you don’t have abs or toned arms and legs, your body is normal and you’re still fitting into your favorite dresses, so that’s something to be thankful of. This year too, don’t forget to take care of your body because if you become lazy in that, then your entire year might go down the hill. The main gear of our life is indeed our body. If we struggle to keep it healthy and fit, our lives will turn out to be more independent, confident and wonderful!
  4. Always Forgive Yourself because we aren’t AI robots (well, AI too makes mistakes sometimes) but we’re human beings and we make mistakes. We’re not perfect; no matter how clean your house is or how good you’re in math. We all made/make mistakes but what will give us the chance to continue with our life is if we forgive and tell ourselves that life is a series of ups and downs and we must learn to embrace our mistakes and reset our lives every time we fall back down. We can’t just stop playing a game just because we aren’t able to fight the big boss at the end, right? No, we continue because we had come a long way and turning back now would be like giving up. So, we fight the villain until we’ve won and we actually do win in the end; somehow…but we do.
  5. Last but not the least, Stop Comparing Yourself to others. We’re all different in our own ways. Again, we’re not robots, we’re human beings and we come in all shapes and sizes. If you keep on comparing yourself to others, you won’t be able to achieve anything because you’re automatically telling yourself that ‘that guy/girl is better than me and I won’t be able to do it.’ See, that’s so much pessimism right there! Just throw that thought out of your mind and focus on yourself. Focus on your goals and see how fast you’ll drive the car to success or to your desired goals/dreams.

I hope these 5 simple tips will help you start the new year with much strength and confidence. Don’t worry, everything will be alright. We all have a long way to go but we have to start somewhere, don’t we? Let’s not get busy with what the world wants or thinks, let’s focus on what we want and let’s strive to be happy for ourselves.

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

My 2020 Goals!

Okay, so I seriously can’t believe that 2020 is coming! I mean, just a few more days and it’s like…we’re in future. It’s pretty dope and I just hope next year, everything will go as planned or prayed.

There are just so many things that I want to do. So many things that I want to achieve. I just feel like I need to make my name next year no matter what because I’m done hiding in the shadows. I’m done trying to be this shy, introvert girl who only blogs and vlogs and writes deep, meaningful and sometimes painful poetry that’s also garnished with a little sarcasm and angst.

Well, I don’t know if I should tell you my goals or not, I might keep some of them a secret, but I might share most of it with you all. So, let’s see what my goals for 2020 are!

  1. Become an Entrepreneur: I seriously have no idea how I’m going to do it, but I’m going to do it. If you guys have any ideas or recommendations, please do give me a push in the back!
  2. Be consistent on making Youtube Videos.
  3. Write more stories/poems.
  4. Publish a Poetry Book.
  5. Become a Level 2 Seller on Fiverr.
  6. Be more mindful of myself.
  7. Read more books.
  8. Memorize more Surahs from the Quran.
  9. Go to Hajj.
  10. Travel to different places.
  11. Enjoy life.
  12. Try different dishes.
  13. Journal everyday: I always tend to write one or two days and then I don’t even look at my journal for the next 3-6 months…I seriously need to stop doing that.
  14. Keep my health in check.
  15. Be a good sister, daughter, cousin and friend to my friends and family.
  16. Try to write more blogs and gain more subscribers.
  17. Become someone’s role model.
  18. Start a Podcast.

So, here are some of my goals that I want to achieve this year. I don’t know if I will or if I won’t but I promise that I will try because nothing will happen if we don’t build the first block. Besides, Rome or say, any other country wasn’t built in one day, right? It took them years and we can’t expect our lives to go as planned too but we can at least take the first baby step and try to extend our hand to pick up the flag that has our face on it, walk to the top of the hill and place it right where it belongs.

I pray that this year, all my dreams and wishes will come true and I pray that everyone who is struggling will find peace and harmony too.

Let me know what your goals of 2020 are in the comments below! I can’t wait to know what you guys are planning. Perhaps, you can snatch some of my goals and I can snatch some of yours.

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

STOP! WE ARE NOT FOR SALE

India; especially West Bengal and followed by Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat are known for Human Trafficking. Apparently, it’s a reproductive justice issue because the victims are not just selected on random; rather they are either already exposed to gender discrimination, oppression or economic injustice. 

People of all ages are trafficked through India for commercial sexual exploitation, forced marriage and forced/bonded labor such as domestic workers, servants, and beggars, while others are sold as armed combatants by terrorists and agitators. 

The traffickers lure the parents in the name of poverty, education and a better life for their kids or sometimes use force, threats, lies and other psychology intimidation to recruit, transport and exploit their victims to work or prostitute just to attain a profit. In fact, 80% of people who are trafficked in India are female and 50% are children. They suffer from mental issues such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, lack of control and physical issues like TB, HIV and other STDs. 

Human Trafficking isn’t a natural occurrence, rather it’s a choice that can be immobilized by taking measures such as raising awareness, strengthening the law enforcement system and observing the borders in order to ensure effectual stoppage to the trafficking.

Hate it but don’t Vape It

Did you know that there are currently 1 billion smokers worldwide? And as the rise of vaping among teenagers continues, it’s no doubt that the number will gradually increase. The teens have begun to vape either because they are pressured by its trend or believe it to make them look cool. 

E-cigarettes are a battery-operated device that emits doses of vaporized nicotine and non-nicotine mixtures. They resemble conventional cigarettes but without burning tobacco. 

The majority of the teenagers these days are vaping due to the fact that 1) it’s flavorful and is 95% less harmful than smoking and 2) It’s aimed to provide a similar sensation to inhaling tobacco smoke. 

However, in September 2019, Federal and Health Authorities investigated an outbreak of a severe lung disease that was linked with e-cigarettes and other vaping products. 

Although many believe that they are the better alternative to quit smoking, there is a manifest risk and a negative impact on the users such as lung and bladder cancer and heart diseases. 

Furthermore, e-cigarettes contain nicotine which is highly addictive and can trigger changes in the adolescent brain. The e-cigarettes also produce an aerosol that contains solvents, toxicants, and flavorings which are more likely harmful. 

India has already banned E-cigarettes and the authorities are tightening the regulations to discourage young people from using them, but is that enough to stop those who are addicted? Can you guarantee that they won’t use Tobacco in the form of cigarettes which is a far worse substitute and is easily at one’s disposal? 

However, here are some ways we can help people quit Vaping. 

  1. Talk to them and change their perspective about vaping. 
  2. Join them in counseling sessions.
  3. Help them look into Nicotine replacement therapy.
  4. Lastly, surround them with positive people.

Diary Entry | Wednesday, December 18, 2019

So I thought of eating Gluten today because my weight was increasing and I got terrified due to the fact that if I gain weight, then my PCOS will be back. 


So, I ate 1 Roti/Chapati and I regretted it right away. As I was eating, I felt my chest tightening and I just felt really weird… It was as if someone was choking me. Yet, I ignored those sensations and continued eating. 


Eventually, after I was done with my breakfast, I had to rush to the bathroom because my gut didn’t accept Gluten. I sat in the bathroom for like 10 freaking minutes and I was like, “okay… I’m done experimenting. Gluten is seriously not for me.” 


I now am a 99% sure that I am Gluten-intolerant. Well, now that I know, I will go back to my usual Gluten – Free diet and just forget about these experiments because damn… They made me exhausted and also, I have a freaking headache now so thank you, Gluten, for making my day worse. 


Anyway, how are you guys? 

Also, I want to bring to light that a pigeon had laid eggs in our little balcony in a small pot and the eggs are hatched! The pigeon began to feed her babies from today and they haven’t even opened their eyes yet! I believe that it’s really a blessing that animals are hatching eggs in my house. 


Because obviously, animals choose their places only if they’re clean and pure from any sin and filth. 

I can’t wait to see the 2 babies grow up and fly away!
I have a lot of work to do today as well. Really busy with my Freelance writing stuff. I also have to Vlog a reaction video so be sure to check that out in my YouTube Channel when I upload it. 


Hm… What else? 


I shall post a diary entry tomorrow as well, God Willing. And sorry in advance if I don’t haha. I’m really busy so these small things sometimes do slip my mind. 
I’m human too, people! 


So, today’s question for you guys is, do you have Pcos? If yes, then what diet do you follow? 


Please let me know so that I can compare our diets and see what’s best for me. 
Thank you and well, I will see you in my next post! 

Peace neighbors, 
I’M THE WRITER NEXT DOOR!
