Little Notes #6

The Boy with the Tiger's Heart - Linda Coggin

.1. Due to the constant travelling I do - that is, within London and often going back home, nothing more glamorous sadly - I have racked up quite a pile of read books (and an even bigger TO READ pile).  The upside to this is that I have found quite a few gems. Like The Boy with the Tiger's Heart - one emotional and powerful book. 

.2. I've been feeling a little out of sorts lately but not to worry! I've found a way to 'beat the blues' as it where (have a look here) - though for full on upsetting times I find, cheesy though it may be - immersing myself in listening to the Quraan, especially particular reciters (like Mishary and Shuraim), to be so calming and soothing!

.3. I've noticed that I've become very appreciative of my family and their quirks which is to be expected really, as absence does really make the heart grow fonder ( and all together now, 'aaawww').

Until next time!


The little things

The most refreshing, heavenly tasting raspberry sorbet!

When everything gets too routine-y and has a 'stuck in a rut' feel - it can literally feel like life is merrily passing me by. Now there's nothing worse than that feeling for me - so, in the interest of 'reclaiming the fun times' and all that 'the world is your oyster' drivel - I've been trying to interject little fun things into the week - simple things, like going to a dessert place (because ice cream just makes me happy and I'm talking on a 'spiritual' level here . . . I kid) visiting the British Library  (they had a WW1 exhibition - with poems from Wilfred Owen!), going for a long ramble through the concrete jungles of London or even having a pampering session and then cosying up with your favourite book!

And guess what? This malarkey actually worked, nope it didn't stop me from still wanting to be a high flying city person, gallivanting from theatre to theatre and going to niche events etc. but hey I still felt like I got some kind of 'excitement fix'!

So what do you do when you're feeling down in the dumps?
Until next time!



.1. The more you put it off, the harder and scarier it seems

.2. That first step is the most daunting - but never as hard as you think

.3. Persevere - keep going, even when it get's tough

.4. Always remember that it's always worth it.

.5. Enjoy the process

.6. Delight in how far you've come, how much you've improved

.7. And constantly strive to be just a little better than you were yesterday.

Until next time



*awkward pause*

The love of my life: Canon Eos M - too bad I'm still getting to grips with it!

Let's do a quick catch up :

.1. I've moved to a small little place in England called London, you've probably not heard of it.

.2. Doing an internship at a publishing company (exciting doesn't even cover it! Alhamdulilah!)

.3. I got a camera!! No more Iphone photos *happy dance*

.4. I forgot how to blog . . . especially because I left it so long! But hey ho let's view this as a new start shall we . . .

Until next time!
