Geez I needed to hear this today. The farm to do list is a mile long and as amazing as ANY rain is (I will never complain about rain) I don't have everything in the field that I need to have planted. But I am changing my mindset to just show up and give it consistently my best effort, instead of beating myself up for what isn't done YET! What mind chatter are you talking that you need to quit??⠀

I was 25 when I wrote this note to my self and people around me. I'm turning 29 this year, still single. Honestly this pressure never really went away. Brown families never spare you. You get all kinda push arounds. And then there are those weird rishta aunties. They are disciples of lucifer I swear. They have just been decended on this earth to make you feel like you are a sheep in herd ready to be salughtered. The more I resent them the more they come after me. 🤣

For me, Pressure never went away. There are lots of questions hanging around. I do look into people but never really got fixated on anyone. I have decided to just go on with life. I gotta live it the best way I deserve. With, or without a man. 
I wish I could go back my 25 year old self and tell her how proud she would be to see her future self.

Teens is Bihar can identify street harassment, some of them have been victims and some of them have been guilty of catcalling and commenting themselves. Now, they've learned to question normalised societal behaviour.

Your worth cannot be measured by your productivity💞 It cannot be assessed by your success. A mentally stressed or mentally challenged person has the same amount of worth and dignity as the stable fully functioning individual. They both share equal human rights and deserve equal care and respect.✨😊. So dont consider yourself worthless. You have been assigned respect and worth by your Creator and nobody can take that away. Respect your ownself. Ignore the rest 💞💞. Positively yours 💕. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mindmatters #collaboration #postoftheday #potd #instablogger #instagram #momhealer #selfcare #lahoreblogger #bloggersofpakistan #health #breakingstereotypes #stigmafree #nationalallianceonmentalillness #momhealer #peace #pakistanibloggers

THE HAPPINESS MANUAL
•
We are entitled to nothing in life, not even our own happiness. We have to work for it. I get a lot of messages from people asking me how to be happy. Here’s a few things I’ve learned about happiness:
1. It never just comes to us. We have to actively work on a happier MINDSET 🙇🏻‍♀️
•
2. The first step towards gaining happiness is the WILLINGNESS, the conscious choice to be happy. This is crucial. You have to want to be happy. This might sound ridiculous - who wants to be sad?! 🤷🏻‍♀️But the truth is, people want happiness to just wash over them, like a magical fairy waving a wand 🧚🏻‍♀️ But it doesn’t work that way. YOU have to commit to it.
•
3. Life is a collection of happy and sad moments, both of which aren’t permanent. Life isn’t always happy, but it isn’t always sad either ⛅️Happiness fades away, but so does sadness. You have to train your mind to look for the rainbow in the darkest of storms 🌈 You have to find the positive outcomes in negative situations #wednesdaywisdom #happiness #selflove

"Creatieven zijn niet zakelijk"👩‍💻👩‍🎨 "Economen zijn niet creatief"
.
Daarom kunnen @vanalbers en ik niet zonder elkaar bij @bureau_loos. Hij als artistiek kunstacademie-type en ik als bloedserieuze doctorandus in de bedrijfseconomie🖍👩‍🎓
.
Ik overdrijf een beetje, dat begrijp je. Je kunt wel degelijk beide kwaliteiten tegelijk bezitten. (En Kees en ik vullen elkaar inhoudelijk inderdaad heel goed aan, maar niet op die stereotype manier. By the way.) ⚪⚫
.
Toen ik net was afgestudeerd en de reclamewereld in wilde, dacht ik dat mijn economische achtergrond mij in de weg zat. Ik kwam tenslotte niet van school met een glimmend portfolio, maar met een diploma en een leuk cv inclusief 'nevenactiviteiten', een buitenlandstage en een bestuursjaar. Heel leuk als je bij een corporate wilt werken, maar niet zo'n overtuigende weergave van je creatieve talenten...🤓
.
Eenmaal aan het werk, merkte ik al snel dat ik er juist veel voordeel uit haalde, die 'afwijkende' achtergrond in de creatieve sector. De marketeers aan wie wij onze creatieve concepten presenteren, zaten bij mij in de collegebanken!🖐🏻
.
En als ondernemer komt dat college Boekhoudkunde ook nog weleens van pas🤑
.
Welke unieke combinatie van kwaliteiten bezit jij? Let me know!

"Never ever give up"
.
.
I've been trying to lose weight since the 7th grade. 😭 The last time I was a "stick" was when I was 12! I blamed moving and being inactive my whole 6th grade year cause I played sports when I lived in Hawaii and stopped when we moved to Cali until 8th grade. I became so insecure with my weight that I decided I didn't want to play basketball because it was a co-ed team with majority of boys (thanks puberty). I LOVED basketball. Got to high school and tried out for basketball, made the team, but I felt slower than the other girls and settled with my weight and position as a post player because I was the biggest & one of the tallest on the team at 5'9 and 200 pounds. Everyone kept reminding me of how skinny I was when I first moved from Hawaii. (S/N: why is it that in our Polynesian community, the first thing we mention when we haven't seen someone in a while is the WEIGHT!? Like is it just us or do other cultures do it too?)
.
.
Flash forward to today: This body has gone through weightloss and yet still struggled with confidence. This body has birthed two beautiful children. This body is not the same nor functions the way it did when I was at a lighter weight. But this body is mine! This journey is mine! I have a husband who LOVES me and this body. I am confident in who I am through Christ Jesus. I think that just having my mind set on how God sees me should be ALL I focus on and drive me to eventually reach my goal. I'm not there yet but I won't ever give up.

The other day I saw a post about professionalism and how psychologists, therapists and other ‘professionals’ have sometimes been told they need to look a certain way. As a Muslim, South Asian, British woman, and a very qualified therapist, it got me thinking. I’ve heard comments about my age more than other things but on the whole this isn’t something that I’ve faced much.

I do feel it’s impact though, through my self-consciousness and the internal glass ceilings that have been formed over time. But where there’s a will there’s a way!

Working in this field is not just about ‘professionalism’ (whatever that means), it’s also about being human and relatable.
Gone are the days where psychologists were middle-class white men, nor are therapists just middle-class white women. ✨✨Tag a therapist/ healer/ Dr who doesn’t fit the stereotype, let’s celebrate difference✨✨ #healerscomeinallcolours #psychologist #therapist #therapists #instatherapist #spiritualhealer #psychologystudent #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthadvocate #blacktherapist #muslimtherapist #christiantherapist #stereotypes #breakingstereotypes #breakingthestereotype #humanity #difference #makeadifference #instadoc #instadoctor #spiritualityandhealth #diversitymatters #diversityinhealing #mentalhealthsupport

The other day I saw a post about professionalism and how psychologists, therapists and other ‘professionals’ have sometimes been told they need to look a certain way. As a Muslim, South Asian, British woman, and a very qualified therapist, it got me thinking. I’ve heard comments about my age more than other things but on the whole this isn’t something that I’ve faced much.

I do feel it’s impact though, through my self-consciousness and the internal glass ceilings that have been formed over time. But where there’s a will there’s a way!

“Good things take time, more time than you want them to take. This is something I have learned the hard way. Achieving your fitness goals or learning a new skill, things take time. You may think you’ve got it when you achieve a small step, but you could lose that if you don’t practice it. Consistency and hard work are the key.”
- Aya Heshmat, 26, Maryland

“I think people love to generalize just one aspect of a person like ‘oh she's wearing a hijab so she must be Muslim and oppressed.’ That to me is so wild because that's not the attribute to pick out from. You talk about whether they're funny or what job they do, what their traits are as a person. I think we often forget to look at that when it comes to a woman, as to who they are as people. I believe that's much more universal and much more relatable.” – Farheena Siddiqui, 27, Virgina

🚫 WANT A JUICY ARM PUMP? ITS TIME TO SUPERSET!!!!
.
➡When we get used to an exercise, sometimes we tend to not push ourselves further. We think okay, I'm happy here. I'll push myself some other time. This not only becomes a habit that we condition our minds to, but it is also the best thing you can do -  IF YOU DON'T WANT TO IMPROVE AND GROW. No one wants that do they?
.
➡I say this because we need to give ourselves more credit. Our bodies are more capable than we think. Plus, what's the worst that can happen? We fail? Okay? And????? We get unlimited chances to try again and again. This journey is individual to each person. Leave your ego at the door, don't compare your journey with others, and just push your damn self.
.
➡You will respect yourself more for trying and failing, than if you hadn't tried at all. I know I certainly respect anyone that is pushing themselves past their limitations.
.
➡Saying that, I used a weight for my dips that I never had, and hit a PR. If I hadn't tried, I would have stayed at the same weight and not challenged my mind and muscles to push beyond!
.
➡ Keep on pushing! Don't you dare give up. Clap for yourself and go again. Each. And. Every. Time. & if you really want a good, quick juicy arm pump, try out this superset 👀

Getting the winter dust off. #skydiving #detroit #breakingstereotypes

long story, but randomly came across this amazing Indian sweet shop on Saturday when a friend felt the need to stop at a random strip mall to get her eyebrows threaded in the West Island of Montréal. While waiting for her, I walked along the strip mall, came in and got some rava ladoos- my fav! Later in the evening, a stranger on a bus sitting near me saw me holding the box of sweets. He knew about various kinds of Indian sweets as he is contracted as a janitor to the numerous Indian restaurants on Jean Talon Ouest- and gets a chance to try what was not sold for the day. This somehow then led to a prolonged conversation with him (Larry) about students with "daddy's money" driving out migrant families in Montréal and how elites, experts, and tech bros are so far removed from even being able to fix their toilets, while the working class gets literally "crapped on" in terms of recognition of work they provide to maintain it all. It's "karma" said Larry. We chatted about social and environmental problems, about inequality and racism, about fairness, about empathy and care. In the end, as we parted ways in the metro, we both agreed that having conversations-among people from different backgrounds and worldviews- was one important way of building solidarity to demand real change. "The world's not as big as people think" he said, as he left the metro car. I sat there reflecting with my box of sweets in hand. Later in the night, I passed the sweets on to the lovely @kicking.paris for her birthday! #smallworld #conversations #breakingstereotypes #transformation #everydaylife #humanconnection #relationships #meaningoflife

Yes, you’re a bad friend if you aren’t checking in on any of your friends regularly.
There, I said it. .
.
I dont mean that you must give every contact on your WhatsApp list a text or call, but you know who your close friends are. You know who you love, more than others. You know who you connect with at a very deep level, like #realfriends do.. THOSE SPECIAL ONES. 
Them you must check on..
.
.
#goodfriendship is rare, especially at the times of "hashtag bff on Insta" world. .
.
My own rule of thumb is: If someone has crossed my mind and we haven’t interacted in some way very recently, I should check in with them to let them know I’m thinking of them.
.
.
A friend of mine is on the verge of divorce,  other is dealing with grief, another one got to know she has cancer and this other is stressed at work. Another friend of mine is about to get married and this other one is moving from darkness to light, all healed and happy. And I am dealing with my own shit anyway,  #lifeisnotfair but, it's not fair to all, at different points and that's what makes it fair. .
.
.
Point being, check on your friends not because they are suicidal,  check on them because they may not tell you this, but they need #thatfriend that listens. 
I know I do.. To want a friend like that..
First, be that friend..
.
.
When I was down after my surgery last year, I realized how much it meant to me to get a visit from my friends and calls from those who are far. Obviously,  I had some major disappointments in the friend department,  and that taught me to #forgive and #moveon✌
.
.
If reading this, makes you think about a friend 
Who you haven't spoken to or connected with 
In a while.. I urge you.. I insist..
Please leave them a message 
And check on them..
Trust me, you will feel very good after 
And so will your friend

Yes, you’re a bad friend if you aren’t checking in on any of your friends regularly.
There, I said it. .
.
I dont mean that you must give every contact on your WhatsApp list a text or call, but you know who your close friends are. You know who you love, more than others. You know who you connect with at a very deep level, like #realfriends do.. THOSE SPECIAL ONES.
Them you must check on..
.
.
#goodfriendship is rare, especially at the times of "hashtag bff on Insta" world. .
.
My own rule of thumb is: If someone has crossed my mind and we haven’t interacted in some way very recently, I should check in with them to let them know I’m thinking of them.

A friend of mine is on the verge of divorce, other is dealing with grief, another one got to know she has cancer and this other is stressed at work. Another friend of mine is about to get married and this other one is moving from darkness to light, all healed and happy. And I am dealing with my own shit anyway, #lifeisnotfair but, it's not fair to all, at different points and that's what makes it fair. .
.
.
Point being, check on your friends not because they are suicidal, check on them because they may not tell you this, but they need #thatfriend that listens.
I know I do.. To want a friend like that..
First, be that friend..

When I was down after my surgery last year, I realized how much it meant to me to get a visit from my friends and calls from those who are far. Obviously, I had some major disappointments in the friend department, and that taught me to #forgive and #moveon

Have you heard?  Nerd’s the word. Word. 🎻🎻🎻🎻. One of my all time favorite shows to be casted in, Nerdlesque starts on May 31st and continues on every Saturday in June at the Clocktower Cabaret. What was the name of your Nerd Herd back in the day?  I was considered an Orch Dork. Also, lots of people assumed that I was good at math because I’m part Asian. #breakingstereotypes 😂. .
