Eid is going to feel a little weird without my mom and older brother here but was so thankful to have a big family with whom I can celebrate. Had dinner at my Khala (aunts) house today, a great way to bring in the Eid festivities ahead of us tomorrow! #findingthehappy
My workout routine has been seriously lacking lately. I use to start my mornings with an early workout to get my day started right but I got out of the habit. As difficult as it was to get out of bed this morning I did it and got in my 25 minutes with Shaun T. It has been a while so I was struggling the whole time but I did it! 👍🏼 😁 #findingthehappy
By some twisted fate I dropped my phone yesterday breaking a chunk out of it and shattering the screen. Ironic because 1. I had just ordered a new protective case for the phone and literally dropped it as soon as I got home to put the case on it and 2. The new iPhone www being announced the very next day. Weird huh? So I watched the #applekeynote on my lunch break at work and caught w glimpse of the new phone. It seems pretty impressive! I’m torn between the new iPhone or switching to a android but the thought of a new toy brighten up my otherwise pretty mundane day 😁 So tell me, upgrade to the iPhone 7 or switch to Android? #findingthehappy
Nevermind the fact that it is 90+ degrees today, fall is one of my absolute favorite seasons. Picked up some fall inspired air fresheners for my car on the way home. With scents like sweater weather, leaves and pumpkin apple fall fever had hit in a major way! Just a little thing that made my day happier and more fragrant #findingthehappy
Today was another trying day, things kept going missing all day and I felt like I was losing my mind! Not little things either, for one our passports went missing! Thankfully we found them! Thank Allah! I Guess it is to be expected with all the packing and moving of things around for our upcoming trip. Was able to get a majority of my bag packed today, yes a whole two weeks early but that is besides the point😂 The planner in me got a little over zealous but at least it is done! The countdown to Pakistan begins! #findingthehappy
#100happydays Day Eight: It has pockets!
Today was a struggle my happiness challenge in a major way, it was just one of those days when I just couldn’t get out of my funk. So what’s the solution? Some retail therapy! And there is no better feeling then putting on a dress and realizing it has pockets! I don’t know why dresses with pockets make me so happy but I know I’m not the only one, I’ve seen the memes 😂 needless to say I got the dress and I will be telling everyone it has pockets 😂 #findingthehappy
I am ashamed to say in my 30 years I have not read the entire Quran in Arabic. While I studied periodically in my youth as I grew older my reading became more and more sporadically. A few months ago I started taking Quran classes online on the weekends and have gotten back in the habit of reading regularly. Today I started the 3rd juz of the Quran and am reading Arabic at the best level I ever have. While I am sad it has taken me this long to read consistently, it is proof that it is never too late to get started #findingthehappy
Is there anything more satisfying than crossing an item off your ever growing to do list? Fell in a bit of a panic yesterday when I realized how little time I have before my upcoming trip overseas. I immediately made a lengthy to do list and felt better knowing that I had a course of action. While I didn’t get it all done today I was able to manage crossing off 11 things off my list of 23! Tomorrow on to remaining 10!
