The ONLY Two Promises you NEED to make(to yourself!) for A Positive New Year

The ONLY Two Promises you NEED to make(to yourself!) for A Positive New YearFor last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice.’ ~ T. S. Eliot

As the year end inches closer and closer, I find myself introspecting a whole lot. I find myself thinking about the year in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes me think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light. I have definitely learnt a whole LOT this past year.

We are all in a state of constant growth, be it physical, mental or spiritual. We don’t necessarily like to believe we are growing constantly, cause that would mean an admittance to NOT knowing EVERYTHING. Funny how we love to show the world we are master champions about everything, but in reality we are just trying SO hard to fit in. Continue reading

6 Timeless and Positive Life Lessons from #RUMI

6 Timeless and Positive Life Lessons from #RUMI

My Dad’s Favorite Rumi Quote :)

Rumi’s words, his verses and his poetry has always inspired me. Its moved me at the soul level. Its made me understand so many of life’s truths that sometimes when I sit to soak in his words, I am astounded by what they reveal. You can read the same poetry a hundred times over and each time you will come to understand another layer of the wisdom it offers. Amazing right?!

I was introduced to Rumi by my very brilliant dad. He loved all things poetry and I was always surrounded by books and debates discussing essential life philosophy. I started reading Rumi when I was just 12 years old! While other girls my age read Nancy Drews I was reading Rumi and Gibran…go figure :) I obviously couldn’t process Rumi’s words at the time, but I loved how his words calmed me. Dad would often quote Rumi in his day to day interactions. He would quote him in Urdu, Farsi and English. All these years of being exposed to this Sufi wisdom tends to rub off  :) Continue reading

4 Soul Nurturing ways to being Open to Wisdom Everyday

4 Soul Nurturing ways to being Open to Wisdom Everyday

“We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.” - Samuel Smiles

I am open to Wisdom in any size, shape or form it may present itself. Wisdom is something I aim and strive for.

The world is thinking about making money and here I am thinking about gaining wisdom! I can sometimes laugh at myself and my ways of thinking, but the best part about my openness, aims and strives is that I know they fulfill me, enrich me, satisfy me and most of all make me happy.

Get out of Clue Clue Land and Decide to Be YOU

“It’s choice – not chance – that determines your destiny.”~Jean Nidetch~

I remember when I was about 8 years old and loved playing with my Barbie doll sets, if anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said a Barbie doll. And why? Because my Barbie has such beautiful things. Then when I was 12 yrs old, I was crazy about painting and wanted to be a Painter. At 13 it was an astronaut, at 15 it was a teacher, at 16 it was a doctor and at 18 well I just wanted to be left the hell alone!!

The point to all this is, we are constantly asked by everyone around – What do you want to be when you grow up??? Continue reading

We all have to admit, that we all have problems and issues in our lives we are all trying to work through.

Lets put an end to and clear many of those pesky problems this month by taking up this Positive Challenge!

This months positive challenge is a rather interesting one. Not only will it help you prioritize which problem needs your focus immediately, but it will also empower you to be more YOU. Continue reading

Don’t Wait To Heal ~ Positively Affirm Your Healing Today!

Don’t Wait To Heal ~ Positively Affirm Your Healing Today!“Think Positive healing thoughts. You are what you think you are.” Z~

Life has a way of throwing many curve balls in your path. My life has been no exception to those very unpleasant curve balls. From a broken heart, to a broken soul, to coming down a negative spiral….I’ve been everywhere. In those very very negative times, the few things that helped me heal were my faith in the Divine and my own self talk.

Although spirituality came to me at a very early age, its not until pretty late that I realized it wasn’t anyone or anything that’s hurting me…it was me all along! HOW? My own thinking was eating me alive. When I read and learnt about positive thinking and positive affirmations…I was already too muddled to realize the full benefits of this simple healing magic. It was while IN one of these trying times that I revisited my own thoughts and began putting my knowledge to good practical use. Within no time, I was OUT of my negative patterns and could see clearly. I was feeling alive again. Continue reading
