Sharing small collections of DIYs from over the internet is so my thing! So here I have come up with a collection of the 30 best gift wrap DIY from around the internet. They are simple, quick, fun to follow and to look at; but best of all, most of them are really cheap to make.

The Storyteller

She liked telling stories. The kind that left her listeners hanging between a certainty and an irresistible suspense. She liked leaving them half ecstatic, half yearning for more. That didn't make her a bad person though. She liked to leave a story in between so it could hang mid air among her people, giving them something fascinating to think about while she worked up the next move of her characters. Her audience would inevitably wait for more because they knew she gave a beautiful ending to each of her tale.

Ramadan; What Did It Leave Behind In You?

Belated Eid Mabrook to everyone!

The blessed month of Ramadan has left us. Though we are sad, but we are also glad that it left us as better human beings. Ramadan brings with it so much festivities where we Muslims rejoice in praying for Allah Almighty. Everyone makes a hasty effort to collect as many neki (good deeds) as possible as they can. It is not selfish to be hasty in this endeavor, for Allah loves those who want to please Him. Being away from my family and friends, they were all so near my heart, joined in prayer. We all were chanting the same words, looking at the same sky, heads bowed in prayers, reading the same Quran and thinking the same things. Ramadan is one of the beautiful times when all Muslims, regardless of their color, race, language, unite hearts. Such a glorious gift from Allah! 

How To Change Your Life (without pushing yourself)

I am going through a phase of change. Not only did I switch my place of living, but I am going through a change that runs deep under the skin. Owing to that, I have a ton of things going on inside and around me. I need to wait out this paradigm shift and feel some ground before I decide where it is that I have come to. That is exactly my topic of discussion today.

Change. It is a one word bomb that will set most people to unrest. Whether the impending change is good or bad for us, only time will tell, but most of it is based on common sense. Literally. While we may not possess the power to foresee our future, God has equipped us with a little piece of magic called "common sense". No pun intended. Your common sense and a basic general knowledge of the things surrounding your point of concern will go a long way.

Lost And Found - Wonderful Wednesday

I would like to know
what it feels to be lost. 
Because when you are lost,
you find things you never
expected to find.

The funny thing about
getting lost is
that the things you find
were there all along.
Isn't it strange?

A journey on lost and found
will be quite a thrilling one.
I wonder what you will find,
I wonder who will you find.
I wonder who will you recognize.

Maybe you will return
a changed person.
Maybe you will come back
with a subtle knowledge of
who you were all along.

If you chance to get lost
once in your lifetime,
I hope you find
the person you truly are or
the person who makes you find you.

Wait, was this a poem?

In case you're wondering, no it isn't. This is just a regular writing exercise for me where I sit and think over what a certain image brings to my mind. I let the words flow regardless of any constraints of word selection and rhyme. Sometimes it turns out great, sometimes it falls apart like lose strings. Either way, it's a wonderful exercise for creativity to flourish. If you are experiencing a writer's block or just can't get into a writing routine due to any reason, practice this exercise to help you get started. Cheers!

The Power Of A Deed

I am thrilled to experience the power of a deed that we humans carry. You are more susceptible to this knowledge once you step out of comfort zone.

I recently moved country. The experience was exciting as well as a little stressful. The stressful part of this journey lied in fear of the unknown. But what made my husband's and my heart confident was the fact that we had a loving family and a really good meaning group of friends behind. When you live outside your hometown, you have this family-like feeling for people belonging to the same place as you. A common city makes the bond seem stronger; an old classmate or an old colleague even closer. Such was our case. We had an amazing group of friends that were also like a very cool support system. The love and care we shared with these friends was on a very shared basis. Like family.

What I mean is, doing a good deed to someone, be it as little as a kind word spoken, has a wonderful effect on you as a person as well. We like to know that we are liked and that makes us more positive, more happy and more optimistic. Never miss out a chance to say a kind word, a good deed or a helping hand to anyone you meet in life, let alone a friend. What you give to them comes back manifold. It adds to your own personal beauty. It shapes you as someone bright and cheerful.

The photo I used in this post definitely carries a much deeper meaning, but for me, it talked about friendship, love and caring. The power of a deed goes a long way off. Give it out generously, fully and openly. 

Till next time!
