To enjoy life to the fullest is to not care what everyone around you is thinking. In this moment I had felt more free and myself than I ever have since I was a kid. For example if that means dancing around a canola feild in pure happiness, then figurtivly that's what I must accomplish through my journey in life. ▪️ This picture is not perfect, but nothing is. #letmeslapyouwitharealitycheck
We have no choice but continuing to grow and becoming the best person we can be, for that is what creates a successful life. ▪️▪️▪️▪️

One thing I will never understand is a jerk’s mentality 🙅🏽♀️ Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. 💜 Always. (nothing happened personally... just sayn’) #bekind #alwaysbekind #spreadaloha
Yesterday morning the lawn service guy paid us a visit. A nice, younger gentleman named Travis. He worked for the company for 13 years....I’m guessing this job was one of his first jobs and he’s stuck with it. To me, that is very admirable.
Anyways, he educated me on some of the breeds of grass in my lawn and complimented me on our curb appeal. He first sprayed in the back yard. He found a few socks scattered around, so he picked them up and tossed them on the deck. ☺️
When he came back out front he asked about our kiddos, their names, how they got their names, etc. it was a fun convo. I asked about his, he shared with me their names which had a relation to Cal Ripken, Travis is a big baseball fan. Travis then told me about his first child, Easton, who passed away at 10 months due to a congenital heart condition. Travis, told me how he and his wife wanted the memory of Easton to live on with their other kids, so they share the middle name of Easton. I thought the idea was novel and really cute. He showed me the inside of his ballcap where he had written in a sharpie on the underside of the bill ‘E3’ and the names of his children and wife.
Just typing this story I find myself tearing up.... a parent who endures the loss of a child should be able to live on?? Or shouldn’t they? Of course the do, but how?
As my heart was breaking and my eyes were swelling with tears for Travis, he was telling me about Easton with a huge smile on his face and the joy in his voice was undeniably real. I expressed my sorrows for his loss, and he reassured me it was all in the plan. They had an amazing 10 months with Easton that he would never exchange for anything.
After Travis left, I went inside and balled like a baby for a good 15 minutes. I am awestruck by this fellas strength and ability to take what was dealt to him even with such grim results and be happy with life. The glow in this mans face was amazing.
I wanna be like Travis. Every day.

A sweet story shared by Mummy @mia_sani014
about her eldest child and only daughter. 💕
Tomorrow, 5pm is the closing date for our giveaway! Do not miss your chance to be a part of it! 👦🏻👧🏻❤️
The highlight for tdy is my eldest.. Tiara Qistina.. she's 9yrs old... is a big sister to 2 brothers... Danish, 7.. Danial, 2 and her little girl cousin Sabrina, 3...
Today I received a call from Tiara's Cikgu saying that her Malay short story of her teacher was published in the BH sub-paper called Gen-G.. such a prius moment for us..
Recently too, my mum shared while she was minding the kids for me.. Tiara stopped her younger brother Danial den smacking her and she said No with a stern face.. told him to "apologise" then she said firmly" It's painful.. you cannot beat kakak.." and after the apology, she hugged him... Yesterday too she did the same when Danial wanted to lash out at me for not having his way..
She takes gd care of her brothers especially the young one who keeps roaming around.. And she can easily persuade the young one to bathe while mummy here struggles cos he refuses.. She was also a big help during my confinement and even till now.. Helping to take things for her adik and even clothes.. Being the eldest has not been easy for her but she's a tough cookie and I forget sometimes that she's still a child.. She really is truly my princess and my no. 1 and I will try my best to do right by her.. Thank you Tiara for making me a mummy and never tire of showing how much u love me in your own way... May Allah always bless you and protect you in HIS own way... Mummy loves you..
Just beautiful. We are here to be ourselves, in our uniqueness, our individuality, each one of us worthy of our place. Don't let anyone try to tell you otherwise

Exactly! No time for tears!
It feels so fuc$king good, to feel good 🙃. I’ve not been my self for about two months. I was in the worst funk I have ever been. I lost my spark and did everything half-ass just because I didn’t have the energy and that actually made me feel worse. .
I did all the things I would tell my challengers to do, affirmations, listing three things I was grateful for ever day, working out, eating clean and nothing was pulling me out or stopping me from going in deeper into the funk. .
Until I handed it to God. I truly prayed and believed he would set the path for me. And in the last three days my prayers have been answered. I knew it was coming, I started to feel calm and seeing my lucky number everywhere and BAM my passion and energy is back, and I’m me again🦄
If you don’t like something change it, life is way too short to live life unhappy or not feel like yourself.
Im diving back into my girl gang and ready to fill this world 🌎 up with amazing ladies who want to live a happy life, be kind, healthy and strong!! #behappy #liveyourbestlife #ifyoudontlikesomethingchangeit
So after having a terrible day yesterday, I went back to my friends where I've been stopping, I felt absolutely defeated. I was in a right mess.. I switched on radio one n heard a lil snippet from a podcast, voices in my head I think it was? Either way, it was about psychosis and it really hit home for me. I was admitted into hospital last year after a really bad spell, i was diagnosed with reactive psychosis.. my episode was enhanced due to certain drugs I was taking at the time. I've suffered since a young age with depression/anxiety and have had a number of episodes throughout the years. When I was diagnosed a lot of things started to make sense..The point in this post is to spread a bit of awareness, I don't think it's recognised enough by people as a serious mental illness. I also think people who suffer with it struggle to speak out. Personally I chose to not take medication, as I had a bad reaction to the ones I was prescribed. There are plenty of people living with this illness, it really does make life difficult sometimes. It infects my daily activities and thoughts, sometimes it completely eats me up inside. I've never really spoken out about this to anyone, but I'm finally ready to open up about my illness. I've been personally victimised a number of times due to my mental health prior to and after my diagnosis, people are treated so poorly by this countries system.. hold your head high, try to not let them get the better of you. Whatever you're going through, you got this my dudes. It's okay not to be okay 👊🏻🌱#vegangirl #vegansofig #veganshare #selfmedication #cannabisisthecure #stonergirl #veganstoner #vegancommunity #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #speakingout #psychosis #survivor #plantbasedwarrior #veganuk #depression #lifewithmentalillness #alwaysbekind #meatfree #dairyfree #crueltyfree #itsokaynottobeokay #thingswillgetbetter
(also an apology to anyone I've ever been crazy with, n to my friends.. love u all just can't help it sometimes ok x) kept putting this off but fuck it, it helps explain me a lil more 🙌
Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
I’ve had some crazy hearing issues for several months. Before the cancer diagnosis I couldn’t stand loud noises. After radiation, my right ear had hearing loss. After I started chemo, I now have hearing loss in my left ear. Both ears would ring often and it felt like I had cotton in my ears. I had a tube placed in the right ear in March. My last two MRI’s showed fluid under my left ear. So yesterday, I was scheduled to go back to the ENT. I really do not like not being able to hear. I couldn’t hear the TV and only about half of what my grandkids and other people said to me. Then I read the above scripture and realized that hearing comes from the word of God. I prayed, claimed God’s promises, and yesterday morning I realized that my ears were a bit better. The dr examined them, completed a hearing test, and said although I have hearing loss, they are fine. Once again, God showed me that faith comes by hearing the word of God. Or, if you can’t hear, you can read it. His promises are real and alive. Trust him today. If you’re having an issue, give it to God. If you are sick, give it to God. If you are worried, give it to God. He cares all about you and is simply waiting for you to ask for his help. He loves you so incredibly much and wants the very best for you. Now, we must act like Jesus did so the world can see what true love is. Share your blessings with others. Be extra kind today. Share your story. Hug and smile big. And be very thankful for your hearing and eyesight today. #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer

Always be kind 💖 I’m feeling a bit down today as last night I received a rather nasty message from a customer saying that they were embarrassed to give my card to the recipient because it’s of very bad quality (& a few other nasty comments)
That one little word...embarrassed, has made me question myself & my work.
I receive 100s and 100s of lovely positive feedback, but the bad ones stick out in my mind. I pride myself on quality and my designs and I hope that I don’t over charge...I try to price my products fairly.
It’s okay for someone to not be happy with a product, and it’s okay to let the seller know your opinions but please be kind when doing so. You don’t know what’s going on in the sellers personal life or what struggles they are having and criticising their business that they have built and are building up could make them feel 1000 times worse.
If you buy from a small business, it’s likely one or two people running the business alone along with a family life. We’re not big hard businesses that brush it off, harsh nasty comments do affect us. I know this one has affected me.
So always be kind, even if you’re not happy...💖

You cannot help but be moved when you read this story shared by Mummy @diah_tan_
about her daughter who takes care of her elder brother with Autism.
Tomorrow is the last day for the #ProjectBigHearts
giveaway! Share your stories with us before 5pm! 👧🏻👦🏻❤️
Having Alif who is diagnose with Autism and non verbal is a worries for us. He lack with social communication. And Alif only have few friends.
Having Aliya around him, make us less worried. Yes she develop a sense of responsibility of taking care of his elder brother at the age of 3yrs old. She take over her elder brother role. Shes the only friend that play with Alif. And she always give in when we told her Abg scared to go indoor playground whenever she want to go and play. Instead of crying she will be like, ' oh ok its ok Abg, nxt time we play when Abg not scared OK.' Ibu feel bad at yr age, u already help US to take loving care of Abg. We proud of u Aliya. And Thank you for helping us and understand Abg Alif condition.
