5 Tips On How You Can Change Your Life!

1. Wake up early:

Waking up early gives you a chance to be productive while everyone else is asleep. It gives your mind the boost of creativity it needs, it gives you more time to plan out things and waking up early means that you’re serious about your work/business/job/career. It’s not an easy task to wake up early but those who do, they always climb the ladder of success.

2. Look Good:

Yes, this may sound strange but taking your time to look good will help raise your self-confidence, motivate you, and will trigger your mind into thinking that today is an important day; a day you shouldn’t miss out on.

3. Make time for yourself:

I believe this is the most important aspect of our lives as we get so busy with our daily life/work that we forget to make time for ourselves. Selfcare is truly important if we want to reach our goals and fulfill our dreams. We must take at least 10 minutes every day to journal, to smile, to do something that makes us happy and you will soon see a change in your life because you’re not just working your butt off but you’re rewarding yourself for it as well.

4. Make time for workouts:

I am a fitness freak and if I don’t work out even for a day, my body literally breaks down and I feel stressed, bloated, and unhealthy. As a result, I am unable to work properly and I tend to get a lot of writer’s block (apparently, I always have to resort to caffeine for that which is very unhealthy) So, get your body moving; be it for a walk, jog, or just going for grocery shopping. Do not be lazy because a moving body gives you a productive mind. Working out is beneficial for your body and not only will it make you look better but feel better too.

5. Identify Your Goals:

This is another crucial step you must take every single day. Knowing your goals and dreams is significant if you want to see successful results. You need to plan your day, week, month, and year accordingly, you need to adjust your lives and you also need to tend to your daily needs without making others frown. How are you going to do that? by planning and by having a strong and positive mindset. You can’t just break down because you chose this path and you must reach your destination. How long will you stay in a hotel or Airbnb? Not long right? Think of your life that way and pursue your goals. Recall why you’re doing what you’re doing and trust me, you will be in charge of your mind, not the opposite.

I hope you will use these 5 tips daily in your life and won’t give up because giving up means you’re losing the opportunity to make a name for yourself, to stand out from the crowd, and to make people realize that they can’t just look down upon you. So what’s it gonna be? wake up early and work? or sleep and watch your dreams fade away?

It’s your choice.

5 Things to do every morning

What do you do every morning? Do you do yoga or listen to music, start writing your novel/blog article or do you just start reading a book? Many of us do so many different things to start our day happily.

But sometimes, we tend to miss out on the important things, like greeting your family members or writing your goals for today in your journal or diary. These are the little things that helps us make our day even more productivity and content.

Today, I am going to list a 5 things that you should do every morning.

  1. Greet your parents/siblings/relatives (if they’re not awake, that’s okay)
  2. Write your goals/lists in your journal.
  3. Thank God for giving your another day to live and repent.
  4. Be affirmative and always think positively.
  5. Do yoga and eat a healthy breakfast (Do not skip breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day!)

These five, easy things will make your day even better, trust me on this! I myself do these things and I’ve already made it a habit and so should you. Most of you all must already do these things but to those who don’t, I think you should start doing these things because it’s the small things that go a long way.

With that, I hope you have a great morning or night or wherever you are! Implement these five things and let me know how you feel once you’ve done it all or even started with just one thing!

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

A Good Week

This week was good for me, because all I got were good news. I am so happy that everything is turning out fine right now. God is always good and I can’t thank him enough.

Although we were in pain, He has finally given us happiness.

Verily, with hardships comes ease.

Quran 94:5

I know that we can’t always have a good life. We live go through so many tests and trials that sometimes we might end up thinking of giving up on our life. But that’s what life is, isn’t it? Life needs to have its ups and downs so that we can understand why we were created in this first place.

We weren’t created for this world. No, we were created to Worship our Lord, so all of these problems are nothing but an obstacle in your final destination which is the Eternal Paradise.

We must leave everything to our Lord. We must put our entire trust in Him and just live without any stresses and tension. We must realize that whatever happens, happens with His Will only. So, why stress over something which is already written in your life?

Just thank God always and see how everyday will turn beautiful and joyful.
I pray that everyone has a good week ahead and please don’t forget that God is always watching. He knows what you’re going through. All you gotta do is pray to Him and everything will work out just fine.

Today I feel…

Happy.

Finally, my prayers, my hoping, my wishing, my dreaming, my longing have been answered.

I feel blessed. I feel content with everything now.

Not many people get what they wish or desire and some get it too easily.

But not many are grateful with what they have, while others complain even though they have everything.

But the joy of getting what you want is quite different, isn’t it?

The hapoiness you feel after hearing some good news or seeing something good happen to you is undescribable.

I like that feeling. I like to smile and I like to feel good.

Well, don’t we all?

I wish these happy moments would keep on coming.

But I have also realized that patience plays a big role in our lives. If we don’t have patience, then we wouldn’t really feel the joy that we thought we would feel.

Patience is connected with contentment. Both have to be equal if you want a taste the sweetness of the thing you have been eagerly waiting for to happen.

I wonder how you’re feeling today?

I hope you’re feeling happy too. This world is large, but hey, we’re living in the same planet aren’t we? We might be strangers, but we’re looking at the same sky and moon, aren’t we?

Why not tell me how you’re feeling today?

If you’re sad then maybe I can be a shoulder for you to cry on.

And if you’re happy then maybe we can share a delicious chocolate cake and party all night!

Just kidding. I don’t party.

Don’t worry (A poem)

My love, take a deep breath and just let it go.
This life is nothing, 
but a wind that’s blowing.

You’re just a traveler,
a person living on rent,
so why bother with worldly stuff,
and enjoy yourself.

Look at the ocean,
at the birds that fly high,
fill yourself with awe,
and try to smile. 

There’s so much for you to see,
but you can’t do it if you’re unhappy.
I beg you, please don’t worry,
life has many more blessings than just petty things.

So, don’t worry,
live happy.
Take a break,
and let things fall on its own;
in its own place.

— Worrying will get you nowhere.

Mini Review of Camila Cabello’s ‘Never Be the Same’ MV

I heard this song a few weeks ago and I totally love it and seeing that Camila released an official video of it, I got hyped up and running. It’s absolutely my type of song because it speaks of a painful, difficult kind of love. A one-sided love but not really one sided.

The music video is a montage of recorded footages of a lazy-in-bed style Camila in a hotel room. She is seen wearing couture in aesthetic and professional environments. She has this messy hair and slightly exhausted look that really allures the viewers gazes. Her voice is beautiful; her high and low tones gave us the meaning she was trying to convey of pain and desperation. The beats of the drums give a strong vibe and the mid-tempo and R&B rhythms make this song a hit to the ears; It just sticks there in your mind like art.

I can’t help but feel that Camila and Selena have much in common; perhaps its their style of music or the aspects that makes me want to compare.

Rating: 8/10

Mini Review of MAMAMOO’s Starry Night MV

I love MAMAMOO and every time I find out that they have released a music video, I get completely overwhelmed because their music is always so diverse and catchy. This one is no exception. MAMAMOO released two music videos titled, ‘Starry Night’ and ‘Star Wind Flower Sun’ both of which are a must listen to! The song speaks about a broken and faded relationship. Before the fall of the cupid, the couples spent time under the starry night but as the months passed and as they looked upon the starry night again, she recalls the memories, the time they spent together under that same night sky and she is troubled by it because no matter how months have passed, how many seasons has rushed past her, she can’t get him out of his head.

I love the theme and the concept the girls produced. It’s utterly touching and it kind of sticks with you for a while. The girls look so beautiful and dreamy and for me, I’ve once more fallen in love with Solar and her Celtic hair.

The MV begins with a pleasant guitar melody and finger snaps and I can’t help but wonder where I’ve heard that tune before…Their voices are so pleasing, and their harmonization makes the song ever more alluring. The sceneries have caught my eye the most because what I truly love in MV’s is the background more than the foreground. Their choreography is simple, yet it evidently brings out the charm in them. The video also gives me a fairy tale vibe from time to time because of the vistas they have shown. As the MV sadly comes to an end, they give us this aesthetic feeling that really lifts my spirits up!

I loved the video and everything about it; the theme, the landscapes, the lyrics and no doubt, the four gorgeous looking idols. I would say that this song is the perfect spring song that we’ve all been wanting.
