The Flowers we forget to Pick

As usual my day oges and at the end of the day i was doing something……OKAY, i agree to it, was playing on my PS3, again :P. So, this time i was getting out of a town, where i am regularly in, the game, but this time i noticed that on the exit of the city, there’s always a flower, i collected amost all, but i didn’t notice this one, i was quite happy….Then again God inspired me.

God has created sunshine for us to see

This reminded me of how, God gives us signs, inspirations, ideas and so many lessons throughout our day, but at times people fail to notice them. I was going through a rough phase in the previous 2 weeks, that time none of this clicked my mind.
I then realized, it was so because all those days my heart and mind were closed, not that they were “closed” but it was i who didn’t let things get through them, see how God helped me to learn and notice that little thing in the game, i don’t think anything of this sort happened in those days…..

Why ? It was because my heart and mind were blocked by me and because of me letting all the chaos around get to me, i saw after that phase now that how many beautiful/wonderful things i missed.

These beautiful drops of wisdom, lessons and learning are always around us, but we see them when our souls, hearts, minds and our senses are open to it. I cherished the feeling of coming home and feeling warm after getting wet and driving in the rain, it just felt so beautiful to sit in my home, in my bed and just breathe…..i almost had tears in my eyes.

Life’s moments are just too precious to be wasting doing things that your soul and your heart don’t agree to or being sad, or depressed or letting anything get to you, its in these moments i felt so full and felt them slowing down, i almost had tears in my ees and Thanks to God for filling my heart with gratefulness in that/those moments.
I felt how special it was to be in this body, to be present in this world, where God has given YOU the ability, honor and potential to make a difference and to be special, unique and wonderful in your own way.

The picture says everything

And most of all to DO and be GOOD. You have the power to do something nice today, doing something that just makes God happy, it can be doing something for the homeless guy down the street, something for your neighbour, maybe for a friend, or for a colleague, your loved one, or maybe just yourself, by giving yourself a good amount of rest and relaxation.

These for me are flowers in our life and daily which we just forget to pick at times, or sometimes people are so jammed up with doing things without any good reason and just being jammed busy and not taking out times for such wonderful things.

I say myself i am guilty of this, as you know, i too am just a human. But i can’t Thank God enough for making me realzie this. He has His own way of doing things, at times we just “don’t let ourselves” to see the light “In” the tunnel, the light which God has blessed in our hearts :).

Just think of this, if we keep picking such wonderful flowers everyday in our lives, don’t you think these will slowly become a bouquet, a small garden, an orchard then…….an orchard filled with the beauty of these gifts, eventually making our life, feel like a nature’s gift.

That’s what happends when you give, share or show kindness, its God way of showing us that we too are a part of this nature, this world, we, the people of this world are in it, together, you never know when sharing a smile with a kid across the street or sharing a kind word with someone may make an impact in someone’s life, the rewards of which God will give you returns for.

Share kindness, you never know which action of your’s God may love

I truly believe that “You reap what you sow” and “Sowing” is just not a one time action, you need to nurture it conitniously, give it love and feed it, we must sow these in our lives, because these are not flowers that will wither, but they will stay with us, in our souls, hearts and minds, till the day we die. But in order for these flowers to not wither, there’s only one condition.
Keep nurturing it, because they will replensish your soul, fill your heart and refresh your mind.

On this note, i wish you all my readers have had a most wonderful week and wishing you all a most lovely weekend ahead

Working your Heart’s Way

{EAV:7bd766ee3c8d5b5d}

In the shadows for a while (Image is subject to the copyright of its owners)

Ooooh okay….i know, i know i’ve been “In the Shadows” for a while :P…..i had my readers asking me, that do i write blog posts anymore ? what’s happened to my blog ? WHY :O ?? LOL….and many other questions.

First of all, apologies to you lovely people, but i Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love and support and for hanging on, i am truly Grateful to God for all of you :))). Last 6-7 months, i’ve been through changes, rock crushing schedules, illnesses, ups and downs like “Man, this a Camel!!!”…and phew!!!

Well, this post was like a chain reaction to all the thinking that was goin’ on in my mind…….okay, i confess, i was thinking while devouring on some tasty Indian Alphonso Mangoes :P…….**Back to the point you distracted BOY!**….okay…**deep breath** 😛 …well, with the new things coming up, i joined Empire Avenue on Friday evening….loved the response there and Thanks to God for a friend i realized some new things. So, with Empire Avenue, i have been thinking of making a **Come Back :D!** on Social Media….that’s when….my mind & heart were like “Waaaaiiiiittttttt :D!”…it was like “Spot on” to the thought that was going on in my mind :D! I said, YES!

I was thinking about various things of how should i slowly and gradually step back into Social Media without letting it interfere in my life’s activities……well, God gave me that idea and it was something i realized i am always doing, but you know how you feel when you “Realize” that :).

The Way you Love, will be the way that seems the most beautiful to you.

For me, Thank God, there hasn’t been something like “a way” or “the way” for me when it comes to doing thngs, i always believe in that if there are certain guidelines to doing something, following those, i do things the way i like or to say in a way that comes to my soul & heart, something that resonates with them :).

Things settled, my mind calmed, i breathed deeply, looked around…..and i thought “Wow! Now that’s Clear!”, feeling that shiver which runs through your spine, i said, “Yeah, that’s what i’m gonna do.”

I realized that, that’s the thing which comes in when following/doing things that resonate with your soul and heart. There’s that sudden blast of peace and calm that runs through, with the silence that comes with it…..you feel you know the way and, you’re ready for action like “HELLS Yeah :D!”
That’s the point when i thought, why shouldn’t all of us do that when it comes to work, running an errand, doing something that people find monotonous, but YOU…..yes, YOU can do it!

Aaaaaand then memories popped in one after the other……That was one of the first lessons i learnt, How ?
Whenever we went for a vacation to Dubai as a family, it was my duty to do the dishes…..and since then i was very enthusiastic and energetic about, i loved it, still do and i really Thank God for that…..that was the time when it first hit my mind that doing things by the way that God has guided your soul/heart, there’s no doubt that you’ll fall in love doing that.

I had a had a bunch of posts which were in draft….still do, but it wasn’t that energetic for me to get up and write it…and well i lacked time, still do, but i thought, “I’ll make the best out of this!”

The Soul & Heart’s Joy, that’s a combined effort, that’s when that happiness is powerful enough to generate that much energy from within you, that you don’t get up, but you “ZOOM”, with a smile across your face when you do that.
There’s that sense of curiosity blooming within you, like that of a child, not only that, but start enjoying the journey/path to your destination, because you know, you’ve fallen in love and you are loving what you do, its because of “How” you are doing.

At times people do things a certain way and they “seem” bored and they “think” that what they are doing is boring….STOP right there, what if that what you’re doing, you are not doing “YOUR” way…so why not add something that spices it up a bit.
Well, i’ll give an example of myself, at times i have to write many theories and theoretical notes, usually i see other students are bored or they get bored and feel lethargic when it comes to writing those notes, Thanks to God i’m not like that, i LOVE writing notes…….Why ? I write them in a very stylish way that it makes fun for me, not only to write it, but also if someone reads it, they’d enjoy it too. And well, i’ve seen some others, they use different color inks according to the importance of the subject.

A little of what i write

And then, there’s simply the love of doing what you love, no matter how many times you do it, you always want to do it…..you know what, its not late to “Add” that love in the other things that which you might be doing and you find them boring.

Life and everything in it, is an Adventure, the more you spend each moment loving what you do, you’ll cherish those moments over the years to come. Not only that, you’ll see that love, and all the dedication, hard work, compassion that you’ve put into it by that love, Reflected in no matter what it is you do. There will be “Your” perfection that comes to it.

Ending this post with its final message.

So you know what, trying doing something that you do everyday, this time in a different way, where you feel all of that, when you feel that rush within you to get it done, not because you want to get rid of it, because you love doing it, because you enjoy it, because it is an extension, a part of YOU that you add in to whatever you do.

And then slowly, let that bloom and crawl into all of your life’s activities, then no matter what it is you wanna you do…..you’ll be like “HELLS Yeah :D!”

Coming to the end of this post **breathin’ deeply**…..YAYHOOO….i actually did this :D! Published a post after 6 months and 19 days….Thank God :D! And my lovely readers ‘n’ subscribers, Thank you, once again…..Never hesitate sharing your love via your amazing comments, likes, responses, retweets and much :).
Wishing you all and all your loved ones a most wonderful new week with many many blessings & best wishes :D!

Weekend Chewbies

[tweetmeme source=”staticulator” only_single=false]

Well, its weekend and I m off ‘work’ for a while, and its during these times I end up doing lots of crazy things, by crazy I mean something that don’t make sense at all. I’d written a quote of my own : An idle mind is not a devil’s workshop, but its his industry. You can explain I was able to chalk it up to a small scale industry ;D!!! Now this is what ran through my mind.

I lazed out like I’ve not slept, yeah bcoz on the Friday night till 3:15am I was lolling around Social Media and watching the game trailer for Batman : Arkham City, that was better, there are much worse things to do than that, like counting sheep ;D! And I peacefully woke up at 10:30 am this morning and THANK GOD the “Mornin’ Crow Alarm” didn’t arrive at my window at 5:13 am in the morning, and the only alarm on the whole planet that wakes me up at 5 am.

I somehow looked like this. Found via Google Search (Image is subject to the copyright of its owners)

Once I’d woken up early, I’d got dark circles under my eyes, due to insomnia. I looked like zombie with my hair all dredged up and making horn like shapes, so I stood behind the curtain of my window with a stick “Let that ‘kawing’ creature come, I m gonna scare his feathers off”

One of my very favorite things being growing a slight weirdly unkempt beard, with a frown like that of a true honor justice cop, yeah, at times I love to feel and be like a shady character, it amaAAAAzing to see people giving you the weird look, which they don’t normally do when you appear to be normal……hee hee. WoW!!!

Me in the Batman Cowl - Age - 5yrs

I did feel like a ninja Batman………ooh Batman’s a trained ninja, so pretty well ;D!!! They feel you’re weird, not only weird, I mean Willy Wonka weird, I never knew changing my look at bit would cause that kinda reaction, one of my friends ended up asking,” did your girlfriend run away or something or she ditched you ?”, I said “wha?? I don’t have one yet” phew!!! And I thought my mind was the devil’s industry.

I can't believe i had such fears....LOL!! Found via Google Search (Image is subject to the copyright of its owners)

Clowns……by clowns I got reminded of a Coulrophobia or fear of clowns which I had when I was between 5 & 7, I could give the credit of it to a Tv serial which showed a murder clown with magical powers & stuff and couldn’t be killed so easily, he used Voodoo and everythin’ else and a bunch of 7 morons who knew how to kill him, God, it scared the hair of my scalp. And in Dubai, where I spent the greater part of my childhood, there was an automated clown in a mall which started laughing when you went near it, I was scared, whenever I wanted to pass through the alleys I would go around that thing, as a fact that mall had 2 automated clowns, the other the climbed up and down a rope from the top to lower level of the mall and this one’s still there. A Major CROWNIES!!!! these people are so stinkingly nostalgic. I used to day dream of the clown attacking the mall folks and me being the hero and saving the damsels in distress, Thanks to God i found better career options :P!!!

When I was 17, well I was & still am a fan of comic book characters, I tried sporting a goatee like that of Green Arrow :D!!! And that too I’d done it myself, I was so proud and then as my Mom sees me “You look 30 or something!!! Get it off or a young lady might just end up calling you ‘Uncle’ ” I had that weird “Wha ???” look on my face because I’d thought that looked cool ;D!!!. Well so there it was for a single night.

And finally i started my Playstation 3 after almost 6 months, had probs. with it & work stuff mainly and a scene while replaying of one of my favorite games Uncharted 2 put me into a series of amazing & incredible thoughts which i may put up in a blog post.

I introduced myself to you amazing folks as a daydreamer, hope you enjoyed this little journey of my mind from the way i see the world from my inner childish self. And i also recommend that always feel and also be the child inside of you, it makes you really very happy, you’ll always be your 100% self, motivated, inspired, enthusiastic, excited and happy to learn something more or the other out of all the experiences and you can Love to your heart’s best when you Love like a child.

Concluding with one of my quotes : Love like a child, from your heart, beautifully, blissfully, honestly, truly, fearlessly, selflessly and endlessly ~ M. Faizan

P.S. Everything that i’ve written here is the truth and has been a part of my life :D!!!

Thank you So much to all of you for inspiring me to write more :D!!!
