Life is a choice.

Bismillah
Assalamualaikum gaisss.
How are you?

I’m fine.
A book-done-reading fine. Hehe.

I’m finding peace by reading nowadays of which I’m going back to my childhood self once again. Haha.

(Padahal memang suka baca buku pon lols)

Anyway.
You wanna know something funny tak?
(Kalau taknak, I still wanna cerita gak. Haha)

So, yesterday I did some grocery shopping alone and out of the blue I decided to wash my car. You know yang car-wash-machine tu kan…I went there because I simply want to give my car a wash je.

And yeah I did. I am so happy that my car dah mandi after months of tak mandi heheh. Usually I’ll give him a bath myself but nowadays I don’t feel like washing the car.

Andddd~~ tak lama lepas tuu HUJAN!!! Hahaha. I laughed my heart outtt sebab memang dah agak that it’s gonna rain.

You know, I always have this luck bila cuci kereta. Almost 99% of times when I wash my car, mesti akan hujan right after that.

I thought it’s only when I wash my car je. But one time, mom send her car for car wash and I’m accompanying her and tadaaaa~~~ hujan turun right after the wash. I told mom that “sorry ma, it’s my luck that it’s rain everytime I wash the car” and mom laughed.

I know it’s ridiculous to think like that. Ye lah kita tahu kan cuaca tu kerja Allah. It’s just I can’t help to laugh at the situation.

I used to be mad at the weather over something petty like this when I was young, you know. I said “penat-penat je cuci kereta; pastu hujan” or “tak guna punya hujan; turun lah time aku dah cuci kereta”. Astaghfirullah al azim. That was the young me.

Gaiss — life is a choice. You can see it from a negative point of view or a positive one.

Baru-baru ni I attend a Tadabbur Al-Quran session and this ustadha shared that (in somewhat similar sayings) if we are easily mad or angry or very much in rush in everything — we are not in peace deep down in our heart.

Let’s see ourselves when we are late or when we are in the middle of a traffic jam; for example. Do we swear or honk like crazy or being impatient and be angry over everything?

I always have this belief in my heart that there’s always a reasoning over something that happened. Because that’s what Allah had plan and laid our life as.

So yeah. Life is a choice. You can take our lateness as something good or bad. You can take being trapped in a traffic light as a time for you to do quran recitation or do some zikr or you can be all mad over it of which I believe that you takboleh nak buat apa-apa melainkan bertenang dan cari jalan alternatif lain andย  simply follow the flow.

The same with me and the car wash and the rain. I chose to laugh about it and be grateful for the trees and other living creatures yang memerlukan air hujan untuk hidup. I can’t stop the rain, can I? And my car need a wash once in a while. What the use making a fuss over a rain that comes after a car wash, right?

How to find peace in our heart?
This is what I do and feel free to dig deep down in your heart what works for you,okay?
1- Baca Al-Quran
2- Cari talk yang share stories from Alquran
3- Zikr

You kena usaha untuk fall in love with Allah, with Muhammad s.a.w, with Islam. Fill in your heart dulu. Baru sikit-sikit ubah yang luaran.

When you fall in love with Allah, with His creatures ; insyaAllah you will find peace and you know la kan what happen when you fall in love kan? You will do mostly anything to please the one that you love kan — in this case is Allah.

Again. Life is a choice. You can take your life negatively or positively. It’s all in your hand.

p/s: I’m not an Alim or anything. I just simply share what I feel and what I believe. If what I wrote here happened to open up your view in life in a positive way, Alhamdulillah. All from Allah.

Love,
Shafa

It’s October, baby.

Bismillah.
Assalamualaikum wbt.

How do you guys doing?
Great? Or just simply good je? Hehe. ๐Ÿ™‚

Alhamdulillah.
With just a breeze, it’s already October. And it means that we’re about to say bye bye to 2017. Sob sob.

October – November – December going to be my 3rd 90 days plan, MasyaAllah. Tanpa sedar I’ve already done 2 90 days plan already. WOW! Just WOW!

Looking back to my first 90 days plan, I realized I have grown so much. I’ve become more reliable on myself, more confidence, more focused, more loving (yeah, I am so grateful for my kittens for being my source of love-inspiration), more knowledgable and many more.

Alhamdulillah.
Tabarakallah.
Subhanallah.

Tiada daya kekuatan untuk kekal konsisten dalam menyebarkan kesedaran akan kepentingan mengurus berat badan dengan sihat. Tiada daya kekuatan untuk menjaga coachee-coachee, memberi impak ke dalam hidup mereka. Tiada daya kekuatan untuk menyampaikan pemahaman. Tiada daya kekuatan tanpa Allah. Sungguh.

It makes me to realize that I’ve been holding up, borrowing Allah’s strength all these while that I can hold it up all by myself just fine. Alhamdulillah.

Honestly, I used to think that I need companion, I need partner to keep pursuing life but I’ve been wrong all along. Totally.

You got what I mean?

Like — though we need someone to back us up, to be the one to keep us sane with our life and business and stuff, actually, we can handle them pretty well on our own — with the help of Allah.

Because we know Allah is always available. Walaupun we can’t see Him but we can see his presence with the people that came by, with the helping hands that we get, the the easiness in doing our stuff and all.

Girls,
Allah rocks, k. He rocks like BIG time. He’s always there. He always listen. He helps a lot in making us understand everything about life. And He gives presents,k. Like – he’s – so – romantic – from – the – prince – in – Enchanted – kinda romantic. Even more, obviously la kan, duh~.

Not that bragging or anything, I mean to share Him with you, tau.
I cannot get all the love all by myself,kan? So, I can share. Don’t worry, I ain’t all greedy. Heheh.

Girls,
Close your eyes for a while. Breath in and breath out. And start to feel the wind that brushes your cheeks, start to hear the birds chirping, start touching your hands, your body, things around you. “Oh dear, why didn’t I realize this before?” are you starting to ask those kind of questions? Yeah?

We’ve been buzzing here and there in this bustling-busy life of ours. Mothers, careers, friends families yada yada yada that sometimes we lost ourselves it the middle of everything. Even worst – we’ve lost our purpose of our life. We’ve lost our center. We are imbalance.

I don’t know about you, but that was me. I was a wreck. I’ve lost my balance. I’ve been focusing on my work, my life that I’ve totally forgotten about me and Allah as my center of everything.

It takes a whole wreckage to make me realize that I’ve been leaving Allah out of the picture. My picture. Astaghfirullah al azim. MasyaAllah.

And now, me, picking up every bits and pieces left in me to build back my life, my work with Allah as my center. I start to open my heart and my eyes to things that been happening to my life, both bad and good. And I’m starting to look on the bright side of everything that happened. That’s where the gifts are – I believe. Hehe.

I’m learning a lot, k. Super a lot and I am so amazed how my brain and heart could take all of these lessons. Haha. I’m such a tough lady.

So, girls.
Always believe in what you are capable of doing. We are one great invention kot. Can you imagine we can work and study and give birth and the never-ending house chores, and parenthood and everything. With our hijabs on and our modest layering clothes and everything. Who says that we are incapable of doing anything.

Just put Allah as our center and InsyaAllah, all is well. With Allah’s permission, of course.

So girls, it’s already October and if you still have that azam-kurus-2017’s fire burning, you can join us now. Still got time, don’t worry.

Beautiful you . Loving you.

tumblr_mcbqin1PUG1r2zyogo1_500

Every girl is beautiful. Be it skinny or fat or short or tall. You are beautiful. That’s it!

For a girl of 168cm tall and 60kg weight, orang selalu kata “untunglah tinggi, tak gemuk, pakai baju semua cantik je, macam model”, it can be quite troublesome to hear. Most of the times, unfortunately.

Not complaining, though. It’s just~

Urghh!!!

GIRLS~ Listen!
We are beautiful in any way we are. Tak kisah lah macam mana fizikal kita. Yang penting kesihatan tu yang perlu diutamakan.

It is saddening sebenarnya, knowing that there are people out there yang trying to shed a few kilos in such an unhealthy way. Just because they want to look beautiful and skinny.

And ada juga yang depressed sebab digelar “gemuk”,”badak sumbu”,”gajah” and many other names just because they are a bit fat.

This is NOT HEALTHY~! This is so heart-breaking!

First rule of being happy is to be happy and grateful in your own skin. “Honey, at least you have a body to live in”. Am I right?

Secondly, be grateful that you are healthy. Alhamdulillah. There are people yang nak sihat like you, seriously.

Then, take care of your body. Eat well, sleep well, be happy, get active, be a loving person towards yourself and other people around you. So that you can live happily and fully for a very long time.

Simple but very challenging to do. Honestly.

But, the end result is so worth it. Every single of it.

Love yourself first because no one can love you the way you do.

Love,
Shafa.
