“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light” Albus Dumbledore, Prisoner Of Azkaban
Maybe turning on the light right now, starts by taking a break from social media and all the emotional chaos and draining that comes with it slowly, hour after hour.
“You need to spend quality time with yourself, instead of turning to social media and people on the internet for escape” I keep telling myself, day after day.
It’s only been 3 hours since I checked my newsfeed on Facebook, or replied to any whatsApp messages, but I’m relieved, I’m finally breathing and aware of every breath I take. I can feel my surroundings and can hear all the sounds around me, nothing is drowning them from my senses. I’m writing again, and looking forward to very productive days ahead. From now on, I’m hoping to only compare myself with the person I was and nothing else.
Note to self:
Focus. Enjoy your morning and maghrib cups of tea, grow in all directions, spiritually, emotionally and mentally. Your time is precious annnd it’s ticking, take good care of every second that passes by, and use it well.
This photo was taken in Ramadan. 31-5-2017. I took this photo for a friend, who I once went with to a shop nearby, and this mug out of everything else caught my attention. It was a few days into Ramadan and my mum had bought the exact mug. My happiness was beyond.
One of my cosiest and happiest moments were in Ramadan; when I’d snuggle up on the couch and read Harry Potter as I drank my cup of tea in the very few hours before fasting began.
Beautiful moments like these will always find their way into your life when you’re available and you invite them in, how about you start being available by going off social media for a while. Cause that’s exactly what I did. 🙂
