It’s just been one of those days where I’m in the car for half of it and I need a coffee at 6pm. I don’t even like coffee, so I have to cover the taste with sugar 😂 I got a Java Chip Frappe at Starbucks. What is your favorite drink from Starbucks?
Do you ever find yourself wishing you were doing more? Being more? Feeling more? 💭 .
I’ve been a little (hella under statement) frustrated with myself lately - because I keep thinking I should be better than this. .
I should be living my best life, I should be doing all the things I want, I should be more mindful, I should be fitter, I should be a better girlfriend, a better friend, a better daughter, a better sister, a better boss.
I’m definitely not doing the best I can at the moment, but I’m doing the best I can in this very moment. . .
I’m learning, I’m prioritising, and I’m working on not giving myself such a hard time. Even if everybody can see light and rainbows when they look at you, if you don’t see it for yourself, none of that really matters. .
Take some time today, tomorrow and the next day, to give yourself a pat on the back. If you’re not doing your best, it IS ok.
You know who you are, sometimes you just forget for a little while. 🌿🌱🍃
•Zen meditation is a traditional Buddhist discipline which provides insight into how the mind works. •For Zen Buddhists, meditation involves observing and letting go of the thoughts and feelings that arise in the mindstream, as well as developing insight into the nature of body and mind. •Zen tackles deep-rooted issues and general life questions that often seem to lack answers. •The practice points to the true cause of the unhappiness and dissatisfaction we’ve all experienced and shifts our focus in a way that brings about true understanding. •The true key to happiness and well-being isn’t wealth or fame – it lies within us.
So, let's practice Zen meditation.
تذكّر.. تذكّر أنكَ تستحق مَن يحصدُ حُبّك ويقدّره
تذكّر أنّكِ تستحقينَ ذلك الذي يقول لكِ "جميلةٌ يا حبيبتي وليس فيكِ عَيْبة"..
فإن الإنسان وإن كان واثقاً في نفسِهِ فما زال يحتاج من الكلمة الرقيقة رصيداً، وإذا غابت عنه كثيراً، تهتزُّ ذاتُهُ اهتزاز المباني يوم زلزالٍِ.. ما النَّاسُ إلا لعبةٌ مجمّعة تكوّنُها كيف شئتَ، كُلّ لفظٍ يخْرُجُ أو فعل يصدرُ منكَ يشكّلُ مَن أمامَك،إما سعيداً أو حزيناً، إما صديقاً أو عدوّاً..
فإذا استطعتَ أن تساهمَ في رسمِ لوحة فرحةٍ لإنسانٍ أيّاً كان فافعل..
وانثُر بالخير طريقكَ، وسترى الناس يوماً يأتونكَ مادّين أيديهم بالخير الذي وجدوه في رحلتهم إليك، على مرّ الأوقات، في الحُلوةِ قَبل المُرّة.. 😁
When we do research for @martonecyclingco and @thecreativenyc we try to interview people and find out what is it that THEY retain from the endless hours scrolling up and down, left and right on IG and other social media platforms . I have been trying to include myself in the mix. And going to try to share what I see “best” ( aka resonates with me, at this time) . This is what I LOVE from today. Life itself in one single post. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 What have YOU retained from today’s posts ?
