Double take

What I've realised recently is that when you watch/read something twice you get a better understanding and a whole new perspective. I watched two of my favourite dramas like three times (I loved them so much) and I understood the drama so much better, parts that I didn't understand were much clearer and I got a better idea of the characters and their intentions. This is true with books too, I've never read a book twice but when I've read a surah more than once I do have different feelings and I can get more meaning from it too. So why don't you try it? Read/watch something you love and see if you can get more from it.

The two dramas were: Master's Sun & King of High School

The Surah: Surah Mulk

REVISED: Kdrama Addicts

Assalamalaikum,

If you haven't read the Kdrama addiction post (http://hijabihayah.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/my-kdrama-addiction.html?m=1) it might be hard to understand the references I make in this post- if you want to you can look at it otherwise just figure it out. I know previously I have said watching Kdramas are bad and blah blah, but as I've matured and I am not so addicted I can say it's not a bad influence anymore because it's taught me things. Initially I felt insecure by Korean beauty standards but now I think I feel more secure in myself because I know I'm happy with my race, my beauty and where I come from. I think I can happily admire and appreciate Korean Culture without it affecting my self confidence. I think that has come from a place where I've learnt how to be grateful for everything and work on my love for myself. Also I've come to love cheesy clichés, I know I've said I didn't like it in the past, but Japanese cliches seem to really be a favourite of mine, I think that's because I like the stereotypical shy awkward girl (I'm a real life version of that, that's probably why), I can relate to her and as silly as it sounds seeing that others people in the dramas/movies like that makes me think that people will like me in all my weirdness.

I've also become better with how often I watch Kdramas or any sort of east Asian drama, I like watching them but I'm not obsessed anymore, I think I have more self control now. So for any Kdramas addicts out there who under my advice cut themselves off from Kdramas, hurrah!

I think it's good to be interested in some things like dramas, sometimes fangirling can be fun too. Although I don't really do that anymore, I don't really fangirl over anyone.

Chocolate Bandwagons

I feel like sometimes when someone upsets another person or a person's negative habits arise people are quite quick to jump on the bandwagon and label that as their 'characteristic' or them being well known for that particular behaviour which of course is not true, sometimes people act out of character when pushed and obviously sometimes it is their negative habit but sometimes it's not.

And I think the sometimes it's not is important. Because when we focus on the fact that this person is 'like that' we forget that sometimes we can also be 'like that'. We all are a little bit selfish, a little vain, a little petty, a little too confrontational: sometimes. Just because at that time it wasn't you doesn't mean it hasn't or counldnt be you.

Sometimes I get really annoyed with my sister and I think God why are they like that, and then I think that about another sister and usually it goes around until my whole family has had that thought from me, so what does that mean? Does it mean everyone is abnormally annoying and I am perfect? No it just means everyone has bad days and everyone has bad flaws, and also the part I forget is that I'm sure my family members think I'm annoying too and label me with 'being too .... ' Etc etc.

Moral of the story folks is work on yourself and stop being so quick to point the finger in other people's directions.

Well done

There's an incredible feeling when you run
Not at the beginning right at the end
The moment when you know you're nearly finished if you're like me you like a big dramatic finish to your run so you run speedily, like lightning almost as fast as Usain Bolt. In those moments I certainly feel like my legs could take me anywhere, like they're not my legs, but a machine that doesn't stop until I say so. The out-of-breath collapsing feeling after youre finished is great too. You're done. You win.

Yes you win, because you set out to run and you did
Well done.
