Ever thought, "i'll be happy when....."??? we all have. want to live in happiness today? we have to change the way we think to change the way we live. happiness doesn't have to be 'someday.' be content 😃with where you are today.

are you willing to make the most of everything you have? ✋

Satisfaction in life is not about having money, children or other worldly possessions we need to experience god. a focus on materialism can divert our devotion from god almighty to the god of wealth. #tbjoshua#becontent#seekthethingsabove#godstime#godsplan#emmanueltv#scoan#tbjoshuaquotes#goodmorning# @tbjoshua

Who's tracking in pine needles? how about sand?.
.
one thing we've learned from living in different locations is that there is always a form of the annoyances you thought you left behind at the previous location. in oregon, we were fed up with tracking in all the pine needles!! in arizona, it's the goat heads. (think of a rock hard blackberry thorn with 5 points. now imagine stepping on it barefooted.) in utah, it was red sand. .
and then, as annoying as some of these things can be, some of them are greatly missed. 😂 it just reminds me how discontent we can be. i always miss the pine trees! pictured here are the unique pine needles from the redwoods we visited in northern california on our trip south this year.

So iv been doing some self reflection this evening, i’m not sure whether it’s because i feel anxious or what but i seem to be stuck in a cycle atm and i want that to change .. i’m a huge over thinker and my biggest critic but i want to learn about myself, my soul and i want to be so content within myself that other people’s opinions and judgements don’t matter. it’s something iv struggled with for years amongst other things but i think i’m finally ready to delve deep into who i am #sundaythoughts #learnaboutyoursoul #becontent #lovingmyself #journey

We have all heard the word "miracle": "do you believe in miracles?" at the end of an olympic hockey game; "with her grades, it's a miracle she got into ______"; "it's a miracle no one was hurt" (that one was spoken by everyone, even by yours truly, after october's tornado devastated parts of my north dallas area.) it's a word we use probably too often, but one that denotes our awe at some wonderful thing that defies all our human understanding. such was the birth of a baby boy 2 thousand years ago. a physical happening that, as far as we know, had never happened before or since. we may never understand the miracle of jesus' birth. and it's not important that we do. we only need to know that it happened and that our lives, our very existence changed forever. thank god for the most wondrous miracle of all. happy sunday. 🙏 👼✝ 😇

I’ve not really cared for the holidays for quite some time now as it’s when my dad passed away and those memories are, of course, not the greatest. i’ve always stressed myself out about the tree, decorations, making it big and fabulous for my boys. this year, for me, i have 100% simplified. this right here, my little 4’ tree and lighted garland on my tv stand is all that i’m doing. the tree has only simple snowflake decorations, nothing else. although i’m missing the very tattered handmade ornaments the boys did over the years, i am truly enjoying this season this year. possibly because i feel like for the most part that life is calm, content, the people that mean the very most to me are close in my heart, evenings spent laughing watching dumb tv, or curled up, talking to my tater in the phone, listening to the twins recount their day at work, i’m not sure but i like simple. i like content. i like peaceful. i like my life at present. maybe this is the best gift i could ever bask in. #myboys💙💙 💙 #cumbies #soulsisters #flamily #findingamy #beyou #bebrave #bebravestaywild #bepeaceful #becontent #bebeautiful #bestrong #bequiet

Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. happiness starts the moment you’re able to look beyond any imperfections
.
.
out of all the recent images i’ve had taken this one is probably by favourite. eyes closed and laughing. this month especially will see people missing out on moments to try and get the ‘perfect’ photos for their social media accounts. what moments are you missing though in the pursuit for that? i post a lot of stuff here but very little of my family/personal life etc. why? because those moments are special, in 30 years times i’ll not remember photos i took on an iphone; i’ll remember the important things; the stories, the laughs, the dancing on a night out, the giving out when cheese appears on someone’s burger 😂😂
.
.
photos are precious but in a world where we now take 20 in pursuit of 1 good one? go with the first 1. live the moments 💓

The gym is where i learned so many valuable lessons: how to challenge myself, push my limits, set goals and expectations, realize that it’s life isn’t just goals and expectations, how to get into my own head, how to connect with my body...the list goes on. most importantly, this is where i learned that how you do one thing is how you do everything.

Happy saturday, everyone! i’ve been thinking about my life and where it is that i wanted to be at this stage; it’s so very different to where i am. the world we live in allows us to have windows to other people’s lives and what most people post online seems perfect, right? no one wants to show others the dark days or the failures; so we subconsciously believe that theirs is better than ours. we know this, but i want to remind you, as well as myself that we never really see the huge bulk of an iceberg; only the top is revealed to the n***d eye. likewise, we only see what people want us to see and not what is going on in the background, so we cannot compare what we have, to what we see. no two lives are the same; pregnancies, kids, marriages, finances, educations, career-paths, none of it. so, i encourage you: look within yourself and improve your life for yourself, not outside and not as a comparison to what you see. in the process, love and forgive yourself and let go of these unrealistic expectations you place on yourself; and above all, enjoy the journey because you only have this one life and there is only one you! that is the way to contentment and satisfaction and ultimately, to inner peace. make it a great one: for you! *also, change the way you look at things and see that these ‘failures’ are merely lessons you need to learn ♥️ #lessons #lifelessons #lookinside #improveyourself #thereisnocomparison #mentalhealth #innerpeace #becontent #lifeisajourney #lookwithin #loveyourself #loveyourlife #youareunique #yourlifeisunique #embracewhoyouare #dontcompare #thereisnorace #doitforyou

We all want enlarged “territory” until we realize that more ground, relationships or assignments will require more time, energy and effort to manage. some of us don’t have the adequate us to effectively cultivate where we are and what we have yet.

honoring the space that god has currently given you while managing it well, automatically opens the doors for more. limited doors is an indication of poor management.

don’t covet the ground that you see others covering. it will amaze you how much of that ground is owned, but not grown.

Trying new things is hard. change is scary. but you have to do it. there has to be a push out of your comfort zone otherwise you will never grow.
this. is. 𝔼𝕤𝕤𝕖𝕟𝕥𝕚𝕒𝕝.
if you find yourself in a place constantly frustrated, stressed, drained and fatigued, there is a need for change. there is a need for simplicity. life does not have to be scary because you have people surrounding you that will go through this journey by your side. at least i will.
i find that the best change i have experienced recently is letting go. letting go of everything that is distracting. letting go of control. letting go of expectations. letting go of fear.
in my pursuit for peace and contentment, the road comes with change and discomfort. but the end result is wealth worth the work. just give yourself grace to do it imperfectly ❤️

Progress in anything comes slower than we usually want it to. and i think more of us should be more open about that process even if it’s ugly at times. i know it sounds ultra-hippie, but plants have really taught me that time and time again !!! note to self: slow down, capture more moments, and trust that god’s plan will keep unfolding before you.

Do you love your life?

i don’t mean is your house clean and does your husband never get on your last nerve. i don’t mean do you love your children more than the rest of us and never want a minute away. i don’t mean do you have your dream house/car/job.

i’m asking if you’re content. it’s not a bad thing...lack of contentment sometimes drives us to change, and often should. but contentment can also be a place of peace and flow and ease, and that is gooooood.

so many times our first response to the things we don’t like is to say we don’t have a choice. that isn’t true. just because we may not like the options doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

if you don’t find yourself at peace and joyful more often than not, be brave and ask yourself why. then be even more brave, and do something about it. be wise, do your seeking and praying, and be disciplined enough to put in the work.

wifehood, motherhood...adulthood! they’re not always fun. survival mode is no way to live long term. your family deserves better. you deserve better.

i’m not saying this as someone with a big savings account or clean house or perfect kids. i’m saying this as someone who wasted a lot of years thinking i should be able to s**k it up, and that something was wrong with me when i no longer could.

ask yourself what you can do, today, that is a step towards the life you want. maybe it’s as simple as getting enough sleep and drinking more water to feel better physically. maybe it’s big, like setting a goal for finances or daily time that keeps you feeling like you have a handle on things. maybe it’s even bigger, like pursuing education or making a career change.

whatever it is, you can do it...you’re also the only one who can. what can you do today that builds a life you love?

Day 6 #soulfulacceptance
task of the day: write 5 things you are grateful for.

i am grateful that i focus on all the love i get from people around me.
i am grateful to be able to learn self awareness.
i am grateful that i have learned to listen to my instinct first.
i am grateful to be able to see the beauty of nature around me.
i am grateful for all the small differences i have made in people's lives.

i have been following a ritual of offering gratitude prayer every night before i sleep and it has made a huge difference in my life. i believe i have been blessed with the patience and strength to cope in bad situations all because i feel gratitude and remember god everyday. i request you all to just try it once and see the magic happening.

(。♥‿♥。) this year’s gonna end. here’s top 5 things i learned this year.
#1. everything is temporary
if you have a bad time, it will change.
if you have a good time, it will change too. ♡ ♡

#2. god do exist if you are having a tough time.
he is testing you. if you pass his test, he will reward you with the best gift. so don’t loose hope. miracles do happen. god can do the impossible, have faith. ♡ ♡

#3. love is a continuous incessant little bastard.
your heart was broken? your dreams were crushed? your love was lost? too fckin bad. but you have to keep living through all of it. ♡ ♡

#4. im way a tougher b***h than im giving myself credit for (i guess we all are). the hopelessness was too deep? the fear was too suppressing? and good fckin god, the heartache was too blinding, too sharp and too much? i gritted my teeth and pushed back. i turned pain into anger and anger into forward motions and am still here. ♡ ♡

#5. you are responsible for your own happiness. happiness is a choice. how can someone hurt your feelings, when your feelings come from you? you have the ability to control your own emotions. you want to stay sour and bitter? you decide! drop the negative people and dramas in your life. ♡ ♡
what have you learned this year? ♡

Happiness can never be seen, it can only be felt by the one who get it. happiness is said to be an individual’s beliefs, faith, desires and aspirations.
happiness is connected with things that make you feel happy such as faith, wealth, career, relationships and love. for many people happiness is much more than career, success and wealth.

comment 1 star 14 3 days ago

Lagom - the ethos of moderation governing swedish society....and the word that has no counterpart in english

so what is lagom actually?
-
lagom originates with the vikings. after a hard days work, the vikings would sit together around a fire to relax. they would pass around horns of mead, each being careful to take only their share so their friends and neighbors could also partake

while we are no longer in viking times, the original tenants of lagom can still be seen. in sweden, lagom is viewed as a partnership. it is personal, but it is also about respecting the lagom others strive to achieve

personal lagom may change or adapt when an individual transitions to a social setting in order to meet the needs of a group. this compromise gives way to thoughtful group dynamics, an ebb and flow of conversation, and participation from each member that is “just enough.”
-
they do not overshare, boast, or feed into negative, unproductive conversation. this is lagom in action. lagom is also a game of balance, striving to stay in the middle where too much or too little would throw things off

you can well understand how being from pakistan, lagom came as a cultural shock to me. excessive is something that is ingrained in our dna

so where does out excessive come from? my personal opinion, and it is strictly personal, is that it comes from the years of colonial oppression that we were subjected too. perhaps we grew up with the feelings that everything being done in the west or that everything coming from the west is better than us or superior than our own. i believe that these feelings have trickled down over the years

imported stuff pehno tou wah bhai kia torain hain. throw a birthday party bigger than your own shadi, wah bhai kia baat hai. arrange a shadi bigger than the queen’s, kia baat hai bhai. save all your life’s savings for your daughter’s wedding, kia akalmand kaam kia

just some food for thought today. how can we achieve lagom….or atleast begin the journey towards it. change doesn’t come overnight…but we can atleast begin a ripple affect

please share your opinions on this. i am itching to engage in some good old intellectual discussion today 🥂

(#swipeleft for birth video)
when i became a mother for the first time...
i had a lot of unrealistic expectations for my baby, my body, myself as a woman, as a wife, and also of my husband.
-
i learned really quickly that just like i had to surrender in childbirth; the details i was seeking was really just my fear fighting with my faith. my need to control everything was that part of me fighting god’s whispers to surrender (really wanted to hang on to my own plan).
_
quickly, i reconciled with the fact their was no escaping the process of new motherhood (sleepless nights, breastfeeding woes, feeling unlike my self etc etc). .
_
i leaned into the promises of god for my life and my family. i decided i would be content with where god had placed me.
_
learning to let go of unrealistic expectations (and embrace my new normal) changed everything. it helped me be fully present and i enjoyed each stage of my children’s development after that. 💗💗💗
-
what areas have you learned to let go and trust god? pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, or motherhood share below #swipeleft to see what happen in labor when mom finally let go. works the same in all areas of life .💖

We are all born from the same truth
every mother, father, daughter, son or other
every tree, flower, grain of dirt and bumble bee
all beings in our universe
from every action to every emotion
a million musical notes
ebbing and flowing
intertwined , sometimes crashing into one another
trying to find their way
millions of connections but all part of the same song

through the connections, it feels impossible to find the truth. it can be hard to hear the stillness and just be.

My home is nothing grand or special - it isn’t extravagant or fancy — in fact, my husband and i decided to downsize a few years ago — and live closer to the coastline — we live in a cozy old house - and we all love where we live — we feel very blessed —to live so close by - one of gods greatest creations - a place where we can go and cast all of our cares out to sea !! i work with what we have - even if there are things in our home now -that i would love to change - but i always try to be content and not feel that i have to do things, just to keep up with the latest trends or to keep up with the “people next door”- you have to learn in life - to do what makes you and your family happy- with what you have — and make the best of it — not to go in debt just to have the finer things in life — but the greatest lesson of all is — not to be happy with things the most - but be happy with those one of a kind treasures — that money will never be able to buy— family !! love on them and make them feel special everyday - they are who makes our life the happiest — without them — our life would be so empty- even if we are surrounded with so many pretty things — i share what i do because it does bring me joy — but my greatest joy comes from gods love - mercy and his grace — we often forget what true blessings really are — blessings are not what we have materialistically — its what money can’t buy — i’m not the richest or the fanciest — but i sure am the merriest — #bemerry #walmart #family #familytime #homesweethome #becontent #farmhouseholidaydecor #beachousedecor #countyourblessings

sometimes you have to make a dollar holler, make a penny get skinny, and try to buy more time with a dime. do what it takes now because it won’t be like this always for you. #changeiscoming #changeishere #becontent #notalways #wontbelikethisalways #tight #budget #budgeting

Because happiness is found in simple things, never take them for granted 😍 #happiness#simple#life#positivevibes#becontent#donttakelifeforgranted#love#bestfriend#soulmate#lovehim#partner#fitcouple#fitover40#fitmum#fitdad

Comparison steals your joy. contentment brings you peace.

try and avoid comparing yourself to others. be content with what you have and where you are in life whilst striving to acheive whatever it is that you are after.

~in order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you~
.

take all of life's lessons and past experiences as just that " lessons" ones that have brought you full circle to who and what you are today!! and celebrate your growth in the process!! 😍

This holiday season is crazy. amirite?!
.
.
it gets that way every year, and i forget. but this year, this year, i'm so happy for everything i have. i may not be where i thought i'd be, but i am happy! .
.
.
every fall, i get into a rut. it's a post summer hangover, essentially. after spending 2 months doing whatever i want, it is so hard to get back into the swing of things. i love traveling and saying yes to everything. but once school starts, i have to plan things in my calendar. and. it's. hard. i find myself in unhealthy mindspaces, and i refuse to get out of them. .
.
.
however, after a week off, full of laying in bed and recharging my batteries, i'm doing the things i need to do - eating healthy, working out, saying no (nicely). 2020, i'm ready for ya!

They found the perfect one. it was actually like the first one they all liked, but there was obligatory running around and tripping over rocks and stumps for an hour before deciding on it. 😜🎄⁣
