It’s been just about 2 months since my last post and a lot has happened in my life since. Amidst all of those things, I have missed blogging and have been aching to get back into it. SO here I am today with another post for you all!
Happy MONDAY ya’ll! The day we often dread after a weekend. I know I’m one of those people. It doesn’t help that I’m also not a morning person either. Mondays are a blessing in itself. It’s important to start off fresh and with the right mindset. To start this week off right, I wanted to do some sort of Monday Motivation. Every start of the week I see a bunch of posts and pictures that are supposed to inspire you and be uplifting to kick start the week. I wanted to be one of those people and share with you 6 characteristics that I think are important to apply to your day to day life. Let’s begin!
Give it your all:
In all aspects of your life, the one thing you have control over is how you deal with life on a daily basis. How you coordinate your work ethic, the way you treat others, the amount of effort you put into the things you love, wether that be a relationship, or a project. Whatever you come across in life, the only thing you can do is try your absolute best. The rest, life will take care of itself. You will see your hard work pay off. You will see the fruit of your labour. Speaking from personal life experiences, I can honestly tell you that life works out for itself once you do your part and give it your all. YOU are capable of great things. Be the best version of YOU possible. Just live in the moment and be present in the NOW. Your future self will thank you later. Remember: The power of your thoughts is an incredible thing. It can lead you to success or failure. Making intention is the key to success.
Believe in the power of your Dreams:
Follow your dreams. As cliche as this sounds, It’s the whole hearted truth. You’ve got a vision? Go after it. You’ve only got one life to plan for the next. Use it wisely. Do things you love. Be adventurous. Dare to be different. Prove people wrong. Do something you’ve always wanted to do even if others have a different perspective on it. A quick story time for you all that backs up this important point. I have a cousin whose passion is being a barber. He tried the school route for something that he didn’t enjoy. He dropped it and went to school for something that he 100% enjoyed and is very talented at. He is a full time barber now who started at home to working for someone else to starting his own business. He is a very well known barber here in town. As a cousin, I couldn’t be more proud of him for following his dreams when so many of our family members doubted his future and career. He proved them wrong. Congratulations brother. May Allah grant you all the success in both the worlds. Aameen! Remember: Anything is possible if you just have Faith. Always keep in mind that we plan, but He is the best of planners. Trust in his plans for you!
Patience is a virtue they say. It’s a skill that many find difficult to deal with on a daily basis. It’s human nature to struggle with patience because we are created with the mindset that if we don’t see results right away, we quit. When the going gets tough, keep going. All good things are worth waiting for. I promise you. Once you have put in the work, take a step back, just wait and watch it all unfold. Don’t get discouraged when things don’t appear right away. Eventually it will and the end result will be far greater than what you could ever imagine.
What you put out into this world is what you get. Putting positive energy out only attracts positivity right back at you. Being positive in a fairly negative world is sometimes difficult. We let our current situations define our attitude towards life when life is only meant to be cherished and lived. Life is far too short for anything else. SO spend it positively. Do random acts of kindness, tell someone you appreciate them, always try to see the good in others and in the difficult situations in your life. Remember, you attract what you think you deserve. Keep it positive.
Practice Humility. To me, this is one of the most important characteristics to have. Something that I can’t begin to explain the importance of. When you’ve got everything you could possibly want, or your life is going tremendously, you’ve got the job of your dreams – all of it means nothing if you’re not humble about it. Be kind, be humble, work hard, and let your success do all the talking! But never forget to say Alhumdulillah and thank the One who made it all possible.
Last but not least, just be yourself. We’re all trying our best to survive this thing called life. Might as well be 100% yourself. People are attracted to those who are not afraid to be themselves. People who have the confidence in everything they do are an inspiration to us all. Be more loving towards yourself. Give yourself a break and consistently aim to better yourself, for you. Because at the end of the day, the only one you’ve got is your self. Just do you, boo. I believe in you.
