I cannot believe that the life that I know and love is over. It's not easy to pick up the pieces and build a new life. Nothing is ever permanent in this world. You need to adapt to whatever life throw at you. Be more like water. Easily adapt to whatever situation without losing yourself.
Now that I have a chance to start all over again, I am not going to waste it. There are so many things I wanted to do that I did not have a chance to do it. Yeah it is scary out there. A lot has changed and competition is fierce. With the birth of internet and social media now there are so many things that you can do to pursue your dream. Now is also the time for me to get to know myself again. I have been someone's wife for so long and it's hard to see myself as me. It is also scary when you think about it. Who am I really?
My plan for the next few months is to get to know myself again. Discover what it mean to me. What makes me happy, what are the things that I am good at, what makes me unique and special. I discovered 5 minute journal last week and I am so excited to try this method of journaling. I think this is a good start for me to practice on a daily basis. To appreciate life and not take the little things for granted. I have to retrain my brain and myself to see the amazing thing in my life even though I might not be able to see it right away. I would love to invite positivity into my life.
I am going to live intentionally by ..
1. Do 5 minute journal daily
2. Recite Quran twice daily
3. Exercise more without fail
4. Take a deep breath and be thankful
5. Spend more time creatively like art journal or fauxbonichi
6. Take one photo a day that I am thankful for
7. Pamper myself at least once a month
8. Sort and Organise all of unwanted stuffs in the house. Aim for minimalism
9. Read books for pleasure
10. Learn new skills and discover new tech to help with managing my life
Every time the pain hit me, all I have to do is take a deep breath and repeat to myself that I am going to be okay. Pain is temporary and it will go away. Focus on a big picture and Insya Allah, Allah will help and guide me to the right path. I truly believe that. Life is like water, it will adjust to what ever chances that you make.
