This is a doodle I made as I thought about being old. I want to have plants, books and a hot beverage with myself….and I’ll ruminate and ruminate and ruminate…
No one is dumb. Everyone has talent and intellect. But. There are moments when I see people being dumb. Being absolutely out of their minds- very very 😦 and cranky! The only reason people stoop to that is that they do not use their brains as much as they should. You need to be smart and figure out the art of happiness. My dad always says that. So look around, find reasons, find logic….and the result: THANKFULNESS.
In the end, you’ll be thankful.
So…be smart, be happy.
P.S. For me, I always use my brain to pretend, to pretend that everything is perfect and this day is a gift. I constantly use my mind to emboss that idea. Speaking to myself, I finally start believing and I start thanking God.
Time is unclockable
I read an article in The Guardian by Jay Griffith titled ‘Clock time can play havoc with your emotions’; reading the article entailed an emotional upheaval…that liberating, flying sensation you get upon receiving an insight. Science agrees that creativity requires our mind to wander so why do we keep making to-do-lists and schedules- insurances of getting things done- and sacrifice the quality of our work that may result from spontaniety? I have discussed the same thing in a post before (about the quote from The Holy Quran that a believer must live in moments..in the present) but time and time again, I keep falling for this trap of Clocking everything. Obsession with perfection may be the convict here so getting rid of this ugly habit will take time and until then, I will keep posting about clock-addiction (:
So today, the only thing occupying my mind is my action plan to implement on the beautiful words of this article…
1.Transform yourself into a radar: Receive the message that the universe is sending, listen to your heart..where is it gliding? The universe sows the seed of inspiration in everyone of us everyday. The seed then grows and becomes a plant- the action.
2.Let the plant grow: Now do what the universe demands from you.
Usually during the action, I play some adventurous/happy music in my head, like the Glee cover of Whitney Houston’s It’s not right but it’s okay
Hope this result is the same for all of you.

Hey all! Peace! I’ve been browsing at tumblr a lot lately and I thought about the significance of cartoons an animation in our lives. They’ve always fascinated me and as a they have a large contribution in strengthening my power of imagination because of my sheer attachment to them in my childhood. This sparked an idea in my mind… about making textbooks or story books for children with the lessons that I want to convey to the sweet little kids of my country- tomorrow’s creative thinkers. So from this, I want you guys to think of something you like… and then use it to do something positive, don’t EVER let that feeling go away!
Cartoons keep me young at heart. What keeps you young?
God bless you all! 🙂
