I wasn't planning to write just now, but my friend inspired me to do so. What I want to say is small and quick, but so important to me.

I have been focusing much too much on negative things lately. Look at my last couple posts! My family has been noticing. I've gotten tense, angsty, easily angered, istaghfirallah.

My new things to work on: peace. Lightheartedness. Easy-goingness. Humor.

To bring it all back. InshaAllah.

To be that girl/person/woman that people knew and loved me for.

I need to shed the dark battle gear.

Asalaam alaikum,

Cut yourself a little slack. If I remember right you moved in with family for a little while? Although you may not think it has an effect on you, living and dealing with more people could give you some extra stress. All the moving is stressful. Perhaps when the situation changes, so will how you feel. Take it easy on yourself.

Assalaamu alaikum,

Hugs sis - I think you've been through a lot lately; enough to make anyone want to don the battle gear!

angie that was very well said. good advice hun.

Umm Yehiya, i think it can be so easy to focus on the negatives and i tend to do that as well. It can be very heplful to look at the positives in your life because mashaAllah I'm sure there are plenty. WE all get the urge to blog when something "Bad" happens which can make you seem very one sided. WE know that you aren't that serious all the time :)

I just got home with Abdu yesterday, and I wish I had more time so the kids can play. I will have to try make some time inshaAllah.

Asalaam alaikum, I am with you, all for shedding the negative, or at least not letting it weigh totally down...

Being easy like Sunday morning...

Oh Allah, let us be the humble and patient Muslimah's we strive to be, ameen!
