The single biggest pitfall in the pursuit of happiness is the pursuit of short term happiness instead of long term happiness. This tendency towards instant gratification and small hits of happiness are one of the biggest reasons for unhappiness in the world. 🌎
With all the resources at our disposal, we choose to pursue short term goals that will make us happy for an instant, but leave us feeling empty and constantly yearning for more over the long run. 🤔
Short term happiness can come in many forms including shopping, money, social status, drugs, alcohol, and even keeping up appearances by trying to be the person we think other people want us to be. 🤳
There is only one solution to find long term happiness. Put yourself on a path to fulfilling all of your needs (spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and financial) and you can get off the happiness treadmill, relieve yourself of your anxiety, kick your addiction, and ultimately live a truly happy life! 💯

Getting a head start on teaching Grace about babies and about being a big sister. Only a few more months left till baby girl joins us. I’m not sure if I’m more nervous about how Grace will be with her or how to be an amazing mom and be able to share my time with both of them equally. Grace loves babies and other kids, so she’ll be great.. I on the other had keep praying for God give me wisdom how to equally share my love, time and attention.
This verse comes to mind and gives me peace 😇
Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Did you know today is World Gratitude Day?
With everyday stress at home, school, and/or work it can be so easy to forget how blessed you are. Sometimes it takes a reminder like today to reflect on how much we sometimes take for granted.
If you woke up today with a roof over your head, food to eat, and breath in your body you're already doing better than more than half the world's population.
I'm most grateful for my family and loved ones who make me smile broader and laugh harder everyday.

Find Allah SWT, find yourself. When your life is dedicated to God, you know who you are. Created by Allah, living for Allah, going to Allah. Having faith in God gives you confidence and serenity in the heart. It is a treasure beyond money.
If you are one of those who has not yet found God, know that the door is open. Open the Qur'an, then open your heart, and see what will happen.
As Allah says in the Qur'an:
"When My servants ask you ˹O Prophet˺ about Me: I am truly near. I respond to one’s prayer when they call upon Me. So let them respond ˹with obedience˺ to Me and believe in Me, perhaps they will be guided ˹to the Right Way˺." (Quran 2:186, Dr. Khattab Translation)
What a treasure it is to find God, and then to realize that by finding God, you have also found yourself.

Kehidupan kita penuh dengan byk hal yg mengecewakan, tetapi kehidupan kita tidak ditentukan oleh hal-hal yg mengecewakan kita.
Efesus 4:31-32 (TB) Segala kepahitan, kegeraman, kemarahan, pertikaian dan fitnah hendaklah dibuang dari antara kamu, demikian pula segala kejahatan.
Tetapi hendaklah kamu ramah seorang terhadap yang lain, penuh kasih mesra dan saling mengampuni, sebagaimana Allah di dalam Kristus telah mengampuni kamu.
Mengampuni adalah cara agar kita bisa hidup bahagia.

Yeah, and do lots of that ✨
A slow morning off with my baby girl refuels me to take on the upcoming days❤️ We slept in, had a breakfast date, played and now cuddles. Mornings like these make all the early wake up days so worth it . It’s about being happy and grateful with what you already have and expanding it—— it’s NOT trying to improve what you think you are lacking .

Everything is different when you are loved. ♥️
Cieszyć należy się każdą chwilą. Z pozoru niezbyt wartościowa w przyszłości może okazać się tą znaczącą, której nie potrafiliśmy wcześniej docenić..
