Pay it forward.. :)

mood: relaxed 
craving: tomorrow :) seeing my dad and taking him to lunch, he lives 30 min away from us now and we hardly see him. I can't wait to hug him and feel safe in his arms.. :) 

A great big SALAM ALYKOM AND HELLO to all my followers out there. I missed y'all. :)  I've been so busy getting my life in order ( a great thing) I just haven't had any time to get on the net. Aside from my busy life, I'm GREAT! Thank God. How's everyone doing? I hope y'all are great and keeping your faith high. I really miss writing, it's such a great therapy for me. In these 4 months a lot happened to me and I'm in such a good place in my life now. Alhamdulilah.

 My dad had four strokes in one week in June and I've given my all to helping him recover. May God guide him, ameen..

To all the haters sending me hate mail out there: please stop hating, it's such a waste of energy and time. Be happy and live life.

It's funny I've been divorced for over 2 yrs and I'm happy I didn't fall into the high percentage of getting married again after my divorce. I truly believe that you should be single for a while after a divorced. You should find yourself. How can someone get married so fast after a divorce? Well, this is my opinion  :) I love being single, I get to spend a lot of time with my kids and not have to worry about having to answer to anyone. But, with that said, I ask Allah to bring someone in my life who will be with me for the rest of my life and is a good Muslim and completes my life. Ameen



I've done stuff in these 4 months that I've never done in my life. Wow, it feels great!!! It feels great to be so independent and to take care of my kids with no one's help! It feels awesome. You single mamas out there, y'all can do it! If I could, y'all could.. :) NO worries, leave everything with Allah and do what you can to get ahead and have faith. Faith moves mountains. I have an amazing group of friends (sisters) here and they have really been there for me and of course my sisters (blood sisters) have been totally awesome. I can't thank them enough! My kids and I now live in our own place and I work and I'm loving every single bit of the (ease part of my life now). Verily with every hardship, comes ease. Yeahhhhh... It's all about FAITH & patience... :) Ok, ok. I'll stop now, I'm sure y'all are bored listening to me. I just wanted to up date y'all and give y'all some inspiration and love. Now, on to my short and sweet entry.


Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might
be the only sunshine he sees all day.


Have y'all every paid it forward? Meaning, given to people for the sake of God? Well, all I can say is it's awesome. It all started 4 months ago, I met this one AMAZING person and let me tell you, I will continue to pray for her the rest of my life and will never forget her. She came into my life at a great time and since then, I have take all her advice and moved ahead in my life and not looking back. I started practicing what she taught me and all I can say is, WOW! pay it forward..

The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of asking the beneficiary of a good deed to repay it to others instead of to the original benefactor.

Do something nice for someone you don't know (or don't know very well). It should be something significant, and not for a person from whom you expect a good deed -- or anything at all, for that matter -- in return.

I won't tell y'all what I've done, I feel that's between me and God. But, all I can say is,  Pay it forward and do it solely for the sake of God. I've been doing this and the blessings I've gotten has totally filled my world with ease and more love than I have ever had in my life. Thank you God for everything you bring in my life. I look back on my life and I've had such an amazing life and I'm blessed and I never regret one thing I've done. God put everything in my life for a reason and I embrace it and hold it next to my heart. 

“Together we can change the world, one good deed at a time.”

final whisper; “Sail beyond the horizon; fly higher than you ever thought possible; magnify your existence by helping others; be kind to people and animals of all shapes and sizes; be true to what you value most; shine your light on the world; and be the person you were born to be.”

wa Alaikum asSalaam wa Ramatullahi wa Barakatuh sis :) MashaAllah wa Alhamdulilah I am thrilled to hear you all are doing so well! Ameen to the dua. I can relate to being a single mother. It is a very rewarding experience, plus as you said, it really helps you find yourself. InshaAllah Allah sends you the perfect husband for you when the time is right <3 I can speak from experience the wait is definitely worth it. Mabrook! InshaAllah your dad is healing well. My mom had 2 strokes so I can somewhat relate to that....

Assalamualaykum Sis!! MashaAllah I love the idea of Pay it Forward, and I think it is very inspiring. I watched the movie and promised myself to do good gestures, big or small daily in order to make someone's life better inshaAllah. It isnt as easy as it seems, but it is definitely worth trying! Hehe. Thank you for this inspirational post!!
