ADVICE || A reflection on 2016

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

 I wasn’t intending to write this post, but I have on a whim. The final months of 2016 have left me totally deflated and deeply distressed. This is a very different post from the one I’ve written last year (h e r e). As motivational and enjoyable as it was to write that post, this year I don’t quite feel the same.

Whether it’s through my family, friends or my own actions, government actions and choices or even the state of the current mother earth – I am just feeling deeply overwhelmed. I don’t mean to be a negative nancy, but lately, I’ve been struggling to feel happy and content when all I see in media is my religion being totally defamed and people ignoring those in need (Alleppo: Syria and Rohingya: Burma – just to name a few). Where is humanity. Have we all become desensitised to what’s happening.

How can I scream about happiness and continue to stay motivated, when all I want to do is cry. Cry at the pain of all those suffering around the world. I don’t even know where to begin to help.

This year for me is all about being in touch with reality. Finding a way to help. Research where I can dedicate my time and efforts too. Find a way to reconnect to loved ones and Spend more time with loved ones. I want to make a positive impact going forward and be really conscientious of my actions.

I think it’s time we woke up from all these trends, fads, and crazy tags and focus on what really matters… otherwise 2017 will blitz past us once again. make it count. make it matter.
Stay blessed, happy, appreciative and humble.
Welcome 2017, I’m ready for you xoxo
