Snapseed to the rescue

Our family photo tradition at my parents house, is one of the activities I am looking forward to. I really love seeing how every year my family grows and changed. I love how this year photos turn out but some of them were too over exposed. I just love them and I was so disappointed with the result.
I upload thoses photos into my ipad and try to apply a few filters to make it artistic. I used Snapseed to edit this overexposed photo and I really love the results.

Why I love Snapseed?

Forgiveness // it’s for you, not for them

In the spirit of Shawaal and the month of forgiveness, I would love to take this opportunity to wish all my Muslim friends, Happy Eid and may Allah bless you always.

forgiveness

When talking about forgiveness, it’s so easy to say it than to really mean it, especially when hearts have been broken and hearts have been hurt. In Islam we were taught to forgive others every day before going to bed. It’s easier to forgive someone that you don’t really know compare to forgive someone you care. When you think about it, forgiveness is more for you than for the person who wrong you. When you hold a grudge over someone for a longer period of time, you would not be at peace. You are constantly thinking about it and constantly wanting something bad happened to that person. I can tell you that it’s a waste of time and it’s really holding you back from living your life.

So today, I would love to share with you some tips to forgive someone

#1. Dua and pray a lot. Become closer to Allah because nothing seems to matter most in this world except blessing from Allah.

#2. Change your thoughts. Don’t focus on the negative things, refresh and focus on the positive things. Everything in this world has two sides, the good and the bad, the half empty glass or half full glass. It’s your choice which side you want to see.

#3. Everyday before going to bed, forgive everybody. Tell yourself that you forgive them. If you do this every single day, at the end your heart will be at peace.

#4. Keep yourself busy with other aspect of your life. Life is too short to dwell on what other people did to you. Keep focusing on the ultimate goal.

#5. Exercise. If you are so hurt and really really angry at someone, it really helps to exercise or run. When your body release endorphin, you can’t help but feel happy.

#6. Take yourself outside of the box. Think as a third person. Stop personalizing the situation. Try to see things from different perspective. Your might see something you haven’t see before. If possible try to empathize.

All of these are easier said that done but it is possible to do. Healing is a process, forgiveness is a process. Take it one day at a time.

Note: When you forgive someone specific, that person doesn’t even have to know that you have forgiven them. Remember the rule // forgiveness is more for you, for your peace of mind.

Hari Raya checklists

kadraya2012
Today is the first day of Shawwal, which means the month of Ramadan is no longer with us. It's the month of victory and also the month of forgiveness.
Most of us, especially Malaysian will celebrate this festivity with our love ones.
Here are a few things that we can do especially today, the first day of Shawwal, to enrich and increase our awareness of this beautiful month.
#1. Don't forget to Recite Takbeerat from that night of the first Shawaal until the day of thr first Shawwal
#2. Zakat eid fitra
#3. Wake up early in the morning -- don't go back to sleep after Solah Fajar
#4. Take a bath early in the morning
#5. Clean your teeth with a brush
#6. Put on your clean and best available clothes
#7. Wear perfume
#8. Eat sweets food especially dates before Eid Prayer
#9. Solah Eid Fitri in the mosque near you
#10. Plan to fast six days in the month of Shawwal

What do you usually do during the first day of Shawwal?
Do you have any family ritual that you do on this day?


Other than the above checklist, we usually eat brunch together as a family, exchange gifts and take annual family photos. It is a fun family day too. This is the time, other than worshipping Allah, it is also to catch up on family matters. It's the time when you can meet up with other family members, especially your extended family which lives in different state from you, at the same time.
