25 things i’ve learned in the first quarter of my life

 I just turned 26 today. Here’s 25 things i’ve learned in the first quarter of my life.

1. Life is hard. Most of time is unfair. So be happy not because everything is good, but because you see good in everything.

2. The hardest thing to do is to believe in ourself. It is easy to look at what other people are doing. But even it is hard, put an intention to believe in yourself. 

3. Self confidence is built when you acknowledge and forgive what you can’t do/can’t have and figure out what you’re good at/love doing.

4. Surround yourself with supportive and uplifting people. Keep them close.❤️

5. It’s okay to cry, to take your time, to have a slow day. You are still enough and you are going to be okay eventually.

6. When you get what you want, that Allah’s direction. When you don’t get what you want, that Allah’s protection.

7. If Allah is making you wait, be prepare to receive more than you asked for. 

8. If it’s meant for you, it will find you. 

9. Keep going because yourself for more important than the excuse that make you feel better in the moment.

10. Practice acceptance and let go of the need to control everthing. Everything’s gonna change, all you to do is deal with it. 

11. Stop caring what other people’s perceptions are of you. Especially people who don’t know you.

12. You’re allowed to do whatever that makes you feel good, as long as it’s not harmfull or hurting anyone.

13. Practice gratitude. Always be thankful for everything that’s currently happening in your life. Gratitude for the now will take you places.

14. Things only fall apart so better things can come together. You have all the answer you need, you just have to accept them and know that there’s something better out there for you and it’s not them. 

15. Shower yourself with the greatest amount of love. You would give your loved ones with. 

16. You must celebrate your strength!💪🏻

17. Believe in Allah. As cliche as it might sounds, Allah didn’t bring you this far to abandon you at this point in your life.

18. Knowing that I am the valued, loved, see, heard, supported makes me feel lighter. Alhamdulillah.

19. Don’t waste your time on people who don’t value your efforts!

20. No matter how good you are to someone, it won’t make them good to you.

21. Always choose yourself. At the end of the day, you need to be there for yourself cause no one else.

22. Forgive but never forget.

23. People will always talk behind your back, no matter the history or bond.

24. Don’t wait fot others to travel with you. Do it alone if they aren’t coming with you. 

25. Never wait for someone to makes you happy. Make yourself happy. 

Bismillahirahmanirrahiim, the next quarter starts now. 


Wish me luck,
