Life Letters; Stress

Alot of people close to me have been feeling quite stressed and down lately. To be honest its frustrating seeing them like this. I hate stress and i hate how people let it rule they're lives. People always call me crazy and say 'Damn Huda your so chilled..' Well something along those lines. The only reason for this is because i don't care about stress. I'm not friends with it. Its been a while now but there's always one thing that's constantly on my mind. You want to know what that is? its death. I bet i sounded suicidal just then, trust me i am in no way thinking of killing myself and leaving this good life. People who know me would know this very well :)

One day we are all going to die and pretty much leave this thing called 'life' behind. Using that idea i prioritise everything in my life. I think about things that are going on this every second and then i decide whether me stressing or worrying over it is really worth it or not. Just take two seconds of your time and say to yourself will i be reacting the same way in a few hours or so? Am i exaggerating the situation? It totally changes your perception on the things that are important and the things that aren't so. I've seen way too many people waste time worrying and panicking about the little things in their life that at the end of the day really don't change anything. For example. HSC students worrying about the HSC, Uni students worrying about Uni, People worrying about what she said and he said. The list is pretty much endless. People will pick anything and make a big deal out of it. Thinking about the end makes you appreciate life now. Its too damn short and unpredictable.When we leave what we and people will remember is how we lived as a whole not all the tiny pieces. The bad times will be there too but its your choice now to make it not matter. Anything can happen, things will be thrown at you, challenges, obstacles but that's the beauty of it. How you can stand up, smile and keep going. We're all in this together.

Don't think about things too much. Go with the flow, take each day is it comes. Be easy.

So next time you're around me, please don't stress. Life is good..otherwise i might have to break into this lecture aha. Oh my i sound like a preacher.

Ramadan has begun and is in full swing. This one month a year that it happens is very special to my family and i aswell as all Muslim's around the world. It really brings everyone together and makes you appreciate everything you have in your life, not just food but family and friends, a home, life. I just feel good about everything during Ramadan.

The Anjam family were kind enough to invite us over for Iftar on Sunday. Hoolz (mussie for a day), Muna and i headed over there in the early hours of the morning. I couldn't contain my excitement. It was also my first time seeing the new pad since the move to Padstow. Its such a beautiful home they have and such a beautiful family they are. Stepping inside made me think about moving to place like that. Being surrounded by nature and sun. I felt so warm that day not just because it was hot but deep inside you know.

Zainy was quite eager to take us to 'The Creek' which he has been advertising for some time. We headed out to it. There were so many trees it was unbelievable. It looked like we were in a rainforest or something. And then there it was.. such an amazing view! My breath was taken away, literally. Sat for a while chilling and chatting, taking photos, throwing stones into the water, calling ducks, feeding ducks, leaving ducks.

Shortly after we got back family and friends started arriving and before we knew it, it was eating time. The amount of food we had was ridiculous. Everyone had also brought a platter of some sort on top of the food Mumma Anjam had cooked. Ate ate ate till we were stuffed. Watched two minutes of a few movies. Laughed, relaxed, enjoyed everyone's company. Smiles all round.

Thankyou Anjams for a fabulous day
Love you all with my heart and more..
