Hello 2019


Been a while I know but am promising myself to be more active here since it’s just the beginning of the year Happy new year to you wishing everyone a great 2019 filled with health, love , happiness and success!

As known , every new year we decide on writing down resolutions with the hope to start a new satisfying lifestyle that we aim to attain every year.

Personally , am truly promising myself with the will of god to make 2019 my epic year! How can that be done without managing our time and days – so thought of using The Eleven Planner which I previously used , it helped me a lot to make my 2018 more fulfilling! btw I love journal online apps but I prefer the actual paper touch – the smell of new Real paper ignites a certain feeling inside me, it’s actually proven its better to keep a written journal. Since we cannot write as fast as we type, it forces our brains to slow down and be more intentional of our real thoughts Also, numerous studies have proven that the connection of physically writing something (the tactile and kinesthetic moves of it trigger the release of different neurotransmitter in the brain. To me Old ways are always healthier.

Being online daily makes me crave to be offline , when planning and managing my life at least.

So here are some snapshots of the updated Planner , 2019 version :

As mentioned it’s such a “magic tool” works like a life couch on the go , directs you when lost , inspires you when in quest basically it gives your days a purpose and balances your life obligations.

Simply can’t live without it!

Be the change … 


 

“Be the change you wish to see in the world ” -Mahatma Gandhi

How many do dare to start in their own self , and be the change they seek ? In other words be an example to the upcoming generation, leave your mark …

Since the Somalia campaign was released  via Social Media I noticed a lot about my peers and community that I was probably not aware of …it’s the genuine act of helping people in need , the trait that most Kuwaitis and Muslims were raised to be , it’s not that it’s awkward or something it’s just the numbers which such good deeds were a lot making me believe that good genuine people do exist proving this was seen in the past 24 hours of the large artesian well Campaign in Somalia. From such an act I can Proudly say that I am blessed to be a Kuwaiti.

The True Meaning


الله-اكبر-3

When “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great)  this powerful phrase was discussed here due to it’s use 5 times a day in our prayers ,whenever we see beauty, and when we are weak, scared, and happy .This phrase simply glorifies the strength and power of one god (ALLAH) , and that (allah) alone is  greater and stronger than any situation or issue we face.

As a Muslim, I was raised to pray God ,believe in Racial equality and share love ,help the less-fortunate,believing in the Karma concept ( what you claim to do comes back to you).

Hope that I get to represent my role well and share a beneficial clear view of Islam.

Happy Saturday . . .

Today’s post will simple be about kind simple gestures the image above was in a store … this small note does wonder … never underestimate the echo of a simple sweet gesture.While the world is going crazy try to be the change you want to see , be an example to your family , siblings, friends, and society. Be who you want to be associated with don’t wait for change , change does not happen eventually unless you take up the determination to make it happen! Although it’s easy said than done.”Have courage and be kind” … remember Cinderella’s mother last words.. Believe that all hard work will pay off someday . Simply have FAITH.

Support and inspire each other with kind words , moves etc…

Each and everyone of us is here in this life for a purpose ,Know it and make sure to be kind while you attain it. success is  worth nothing if its not shared.

Love your fate and have faith in God and yourself and you sure will have it. again  remember patience is key 🙂

Thankfully , I got the chance to visit this amazing V&A Clothworkers Center, in London for the study and conservation of textiles and fashion , which is where their entire collection is housed.
We were lucky to have a private session looking at the 20th century fashion with a senior curator, showing us all the beautiful vintage gowns from Chanel,Balenciaga to Yves Saint Laurent sharing a brief detail about each gown.

A real eye opener trip , simply shows us how designers back then used:

  • Design details embroidery
  • Inspirations from specific era
  • Art movement

If you are interested in fashion study, or textiles you definitely have to check this out , located at Blythe House in West London.

Today I got a chance to pass by Kuwait based, non-profit initiative NEST, since it’s mission to helping underprivileged children internationally and locally to get an education.It’s their second year and as I always believe education is one of life’s greatest power to protect a person and attain his biggest aims.

So Am a strong believer by Winston Churchill’s quote:

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give”

Get to visit their venue in Avenues , it was truly  worth it! 

Much love,
