    WHY I CHOSE MY MENTAL HEALTH OVER NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS!

    let them eat cake photo

    My dear loyal readers, please brace yourselves. This post is real , raw and personal to me.

    Every year, like most of you people out there, I try to “better” myself by imposing crazy expectations and restrictions on myself in the belief that I will be happier, more fit and of course find my inner peace. Isn’t that what we all want ? Inner peace ūüôā

    Some of my go-to resolutions in the past have been:

    exercise more

    learn to use Photoshop

    start meditating

    and of course my favourite , stop eating cake for breakfast!

     

    No wait the torture doesn’t end there I have more:

     

    work on communicating better with my family and friends

    do more charity work

    bake and ice a 7 layer cake

    be a mentor to youths in the community

    become CPR certified.

    Out of these¬†9 resolutions that I have made in the past few years, I have committed to only one and that’s to do more charity work. The other day¬†my husband burst my bubble and told me that its not technically¬†charity work if the recipients are your kids,¬†but in my defence it’s still my time I’m sacrificing for others sooo potatoe, batata whatever man!

    5 TOP REASONS WHY I’M HAPPY !

     

    I was tagged on Instagram to write down the 5 top reasons why I’m happy in my life. I chuckled at first because I thought ” only 5?”I have a few hundred reasons to be happy but if I can only list 5 then it would be these:



    Family


    I am happy because I¬†have a very large and loving¬†family. Being¬†Lebanese you have¬†no choice but to come from a big family and to have a big family of your own! I am happy to have my nurturing mother, caring¬†father, 4 siblings that I can’t live without, my loving husband, 3¬†incredible children that I love more than life itself, 11¬†beautiful¬†nieces, 1 handsome nephew,¬†3 amazing brother and sister in laws, and a caring mother and father in law. I can’t imagine my life without any of these people in it. Our dinners are noisy with screaming kids, our table¬†full of delicious food and everyone is smiling. We are blessed.


    Faith


    I’m happy because I practise a faith that loves me for all my imperfections. I practise a faith that forbids the harming of a human life. A faith so pure that no matter the sin you commit,¬†ask for sincere forgiveness and it is granted upon you. I’m happiest when I am reciting my prayers and devoting my time to thank Allah for all the blessings in my life.


    Friends


    I am happy when I’m surrounded by friends. My friends are few but great! I feel at peace with them. I can say anything and they understand why I said it without¬†having to explain myself. My true friends support me in my countless endeavours in life and love me in return. We support each other as women, mothers, wives ands sisters. I am so very thankful for their commitment, love and support.


    Fortune


    “for¬∑tune (f√īr‚Ä≤ch…ôn) The chance happening of fortunate or adverse events; luck”.


    I am happy that so far in my life I’ve been really lucky. I’ve never won the lottery or a dream home, but at the same time I’ve never been diagnosed with a disease and my house has never burned down. I guess I owe it to luck!


    Future


    I am happy that my future is so bright that I need sunglasses to¬†shield me¬†from the¬†glare. I am happy that¬†all the hard work I’ve devoted to my family and career will be one hell of a success story. I am happy that my business, even though so small, is steadily growing. I am happy that I took a leap of faith and ventured into a new career that I’m so passionate about. I am at my happiest knowing I still have so much to learn and feeling excited to do so.
