Hearts Design

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

~T.S. Eliot, “Little Gidding”

In the past six months since I started this blog, I have been through so many emotions and changes inside out. It has been an uplifting and enlightening experience.

My nature, my overall sense of life has come to a certain calm. My writing has changed too in a good way. It seems more mature. It seems like I am more able to put in words exactly how I feel and how I perceive.

I’m sure most of you must’ve noticed I was playing around with the blog design. I was changing headers themes etc, cause somehow in all the changes that came in me, I needed a theme and design that fit my current state of mind- Calm. I do hope you all like this design.  My blog is maturing with me too…

I had heard writing could be therapeutic, and today I am confident it is. If you go read my first post on this blog, and come back and read this, you will see the immense difference.

With the new year approaching a new blog and writing design has emerged from my heart. It just feels right.

All you readers will be on the receiving end of this new design. I do hope my Hearts Design helps the numerous souls that come here to my little piece of Heaven.

What about you? Have your ‘hearts designs’ changed in this past year? Please do share in the comments.

with love Zeenat

  1. What a phenomenal quote; I really love T.S. Eliot. Like you, I’ve felt a huge shift in energy this year – internally and of course, externally. (The inner always affects the outer.) I’ve done my best to keep my heart full of love and available to everyone I encounter – even those who make staying open to love difficult. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been very worthwhile. And when I’ve given love, the greatest thing I’ve realized is that my love has been returned tenfold from expected and unexpected sources. How grand!

    I’m so excited to see what 2010 brings our way — so much love to you, my beautiful, wise and caring friend!

    • HI Megan,
      I have felt that shift too. Amazing how much this shift is because of blogging.
      As for your encountering everyone with love…my dear you are so full of love…its would be a wonder if you werent loving :) Loving without expecting is true loving….
      I await your loving energy in 2010 my sweet friend :)

  2. Hi Z, first of all, congratulations on your progress, it’s wonderful to watch. Blogging has powerful self-discovery benefits built into the process. Personally, I feel that anyone who is truly interested in personal growth should write a blog. Yes, your inner changes are evident in your writing, and you also have a written record of the whole process. And the really great thing is – it’s ongoing. Welcome to the journey that never ends.

    • Hi Jonathan,
      Thank you fro your support and good wishes. I truly appreciate it.
      I agree with you…i am so happy to be on this ongoing never ending journey :)
      How much fun is it that we become better people while healing others and meeting awesome people on the way. I love this journey :)

  4. I’m glad that the blogging process has helped you out so much Zeenat. Like they say, writing down information help consolidate new knowledge and ideas that we have everyday.

    Writing in a blog, especially about personal development also forces us in a way to also be introspective and self-reflective. Those are qualities that more people need to have. And with you blogging, it is absolutely a great opportunity to develop that.

    I hope you all the best Zeenat, you are as elegant in your writing and wise as ever. :)

    Keep it up. Although I wish my header would be put to use…:( Still like your new design!

    Steven

    • Hi Steven,
      Youre so so right! writing is therapeutic…and who knew it would help me so much…I am so glad it did.
      As for your awesome compliments for my writing….me is thankful but me is blushing too ;)
      Your header seems to be giving me a corrupt message after 24 hours..i seriously dont know whats wrong..but i think it has something to do with me being hosted on wordress.com.
      Glad you like this new design :)

  5. Hi Zeenat – It’s been a wonderful journey for you – you moved too .. and this blog has been a huge boon to us, who need to be positively prompted. I love the calm place you’ve created .. we can come and drift into the rising sun on the waves, then be ready to be provoked by your words.

    Congratulations on all you do –
    Enjoy Christmas and your heart’s designs will be ready to go in the New Year .. new words, new blog, new design – straight from your heart.

    • Hi Hilary,
      Your support on this blogging journey journey for me has been priceless. I have loved reading your thoughts and sharing with you. Your caring comments and presence always give me a sense of love. Thank you for that.
      You are Awesome!
      Lots of love to you :)

  6. Zeenat,
    This is a journey…for each of us. And in writing, in getting thoughts on paper (or computer screen) is a very soul-connecting process. And I believe that as we do this, we might journey onto some new paths, and make some new discoveries. I have noticed this very much since I’ve started writing, how I’ve been evolving. And like Megan has said, it started internally, and has led to showing externally as well. All in very good ways, where I feel much more connected to soul.

    Zeenat, my hope for you is that the new year brings much peace and joy in your life.

    • Hi Lance,
      I am so happy to be part of this soul connecting process. As i am reading the comments i am realizing how similar all of us have been feeling on this personal development journey…the internal movements are so apparent in our outer movements(writing, interacting).
      Your support and friendship has made this such a wonderful experience :) Thank you!
      And thank you fro the lovely wishes for the new year…right back at you :)

  7. Zeenat,
    I am celebrating this newfound sense of inner calm you say you have. Truly, nothing is more important … for when we are truly calm, all good things arise out of that. Our love comes forth, our deep care and hospitality for others move out into the world. I have come to believe that a deep sense of inner calm is our truest connection to Spirit… I look forward to journeying through 2010 with you in this vein. Oh the places we will see, eh? Many blessings to you and yours!

    • Oh Jan, Youre a darling! That comment was just what i needed to read…thank you for your lovely words and blessings. I do hope this spirit connection I feel only grows stronger and stronger :)
      Oh yes, the places we will see…ahh….blissful thought :)

  8. Hi Zeenat!
    I celebrate being witness to the beautiful evolution of you on your blog! It’s exciting that you have made changes to IT as you experienced your own changes. That alone is a testament to the strong emotional and soulful connection you have to your writing! Wow, what a beautiful thing!!! Keep shining – and writing – because you light up the world, Zeenat!
    Hugs,
    suZen

    • Dearest Suzen,
      Your loving words just light up my heart :) Thank you fro all you do for me…
      Its amazing how when your insides change automatically the outsides react and show that change…..
      Thank you for being you :) I truly appreciate your love and support.
      Hugs to you too :)

  9. Hi Zeenat,

    I love that I found your blog. The quote is so meaningful in fact I will put it up in my office and on an index card as an affirmation.

    I think my writing is evolving as well and certainly my soul and soul connections have this past year. Like you my joy comes from knowing that if a few words help someone have a more peaceful and happy moment it is all worthwhile.

    Thanks for being you and I wish you new growth, peace and happiness in the New Year! Tess xo

    • HI Tess,
      I’m so glad to have found you and your blog too. It has come to me as such a pleasant surprise that I could actually meet awesome people like you on this lovely journey. Its fun to evolve together…
      Best wishes full of love, peace and happiness for the new year to you too :)
      xoxo.

  10. Hi Zeenat,

    I am glad I stumbled upon your blog, I love your thoughts and God Bless You for spreading this positivity, it is contagious…..I hope to spend much time here!!!

    Cheers,
    Arpita

    • Hi Dagny,
      So nice to see nice new face in the comments :) Thank you fro your kind words…I do hope you stay on and read further and enjoy yourself :)
      All good things are contagious ;)
      Lots of love
      Z

  11. Dear Zeenat, you’re discovering what so many of us have…that the act of writing publicly opens windows within that we didn’t even know were closed. Whether it’s writing itself or the actively supportive community of writing friends, or maybe even both, the expansion and growth we feel can be dizzying. :)

    I, too, was absolutely bamboozled by the change in scope and quality of my own offerings, and often have thought of removing my first tentative and exploratory posts. But I realize I’ve nothing to be ashamed of: they are proof of my journey, evidence of my first tentative steps.

    And I’ve also learned that when it comes to how my words are displayed and conveyed, it’s best to let them sing their own song. They are happiest when I allow them to wing their way onto paper in their own fashion. In this way, they reflect my moods, which gives them substance and color. Hopefully, this helps them touch someone else in the same way they touch me.

    And the journey is comprised of the steps we’ve taken together, our words, our thoughts, a greater understanding… Without someone to receive, to hear, to offer in return, there would be no sharing. In sharing, we both grow. Without you, blogging just wouldn’t be the same.

    Thank you, dear Zeenat, for your beautiful compassion, your caring and love!

    • Dear Julie,
      Your words do truly sing….and they sing beautifully…I love your writing so so much :)
      Youre right the growth and expansion is truly dizzying…sometimes i think to myself…how lucky am i to have found so much love?? I am blessed to be part of this wonderful community where love only grows and grows.
      We share we care and we welcome with such open arms…its hard to think of life without it now :)…its hard to think of life without sharing with YOU :)
      Thank you for your beautiful words, constant love and amazing support on this journey. I hope our bond grows deeper in the coming year :)
      Lots of love

  12. Zeenat, your progress is really amazing. I don’t really think you are writing for only 6 months, it seems much longer. Having a certain ability to put thoughts into words is not only a matter of exercise, but mainly a gift, something you should use to spread your light onto others.

    Which you are obviously doing so brilliantly :-)

    • Dragos,
      Thank you for your amazing support and compliments always :) I truly truly appreciate it. I’m blushing with all your compliments…shukss..;)
      I am so glad i met you on this blogging journey…I have much to learn from you…

  13. Hi Zeenat,

    It is so hard to believe that the year is almost over. I think it is natural that we evolve as time goes on. Actually, if we didn’t then that would truly be scary.

    Our blogs reflect who we are at any given moment and it has been a joy to see how you and your blog are evolving. It is obvious that you are doing your best with love and to me that is very beautiful. So often people tend to function more from the mind and there is a certain coolness to that. However, when someone comes from the heart there is a certain warmth to their sites and that is just priceless.

    So I look forward to seeing what you share with us in the year to come. I am sure it will be wonderful.

    Keep shining bright and being the loving person that you are! :)

    • Hi Nadia,
      You say it perfectly! We are evolving and so are our blogs with us :) Amazing how this all works isnt it….
      I am feeling calmer and more at ease since i started writing this blog…..I do hope this feeling continues. With lovely blogging buddies like you..I’m sure to keep learning and loving this journey.
      Thank you for all your kindness, love and amazing support….oh and most of all for being “my fix” :)
      lots of love.

  14. What resonates for me in this particular post Zeenat is a feeling of coming home to yourself…calm makes perfect sense. I think the same sort of change/maturing is happening to me…likely to many of us. The gift is witnessing the growth and recognizing it.

    bright blessings,
    Laura

    • Laura,
      Its so nice that we are both on this journey:) Coming home to yourself is exactly how i feel. Thank you for being part of my journey. It is a precious precious gift :)
      Lots of love.

  15. It looks beautiful Zeenat. Calm, peaceful, healing and positive energy, definitely feels like you:) I am starting redesigning of my blog this week, we’ll see what comes out of it:)

    • Thank you for your lovely compliments on the blog design Lana :)
      I am going to visit your blog to check out your new changes..I’m so sure they will be superb just like you! :)

  16. Yo are not alone with these experience Zeenat. Since I started blogging five months ago, it has made a tremendous impact on my life. I was never the same. :-)

    • Hi Walter,
      Never the same…so true :)
      I feel like i have changed more positively…and that feeling is priceless. Its so nice to have great people like yourself around to make this blogging journey wonderful. Thank you :)

  17. Calm is so beautiful, Zeenat, I am so glad you’ve gotten to that place. I know with your moving this year it’s been a lot for you.

    Your blogging has done AWESOME in just 6 months. You’ve shared so much joy and inspiration, made a great difference in our lives.

    Me…

    Have my ‘hearts designs’ changed in this past year? Hmmn. I think just to accept myself unconditionally and be happy for each moment, realizing that I am just where I need to be every turn. Blogging has been an amazing, amazing blessing.

    • Jannie, Thank you for your lovely and kind words. I so appreciate your constant love and support :) Blogging has been my 2009 blessing too :)

  18. Good for you Zeenat. Improvements and changes are always good in my opinion, especially when new year is on the way. :-) You have certainly evolved well over the past 6 months. Wish you well and a greater success ahead. Stay positive and mature in your writing. Best wishes.
