One thing I've been working on a lot is having a more positive outlook. I'm not talking about looking at life through rose colored glasses and being ignorantly oblivious. I'm talking about finding the good in all situations. Being able to say, yes that sucks, but here's something I can learn. Knowing that the filth of polluted air brings some of the most beautiful sunsets. 🌆
One of my favorite quotes is, "Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't, you're right." Henry Ford
If we go through life expecting the worst, that is exactly what we will get. If we expect to find love and joy, that is what will come our way. 💞
My 8-year-old has been using the phrase "I can't" a lot lately. It seems like anytime I ask him to do something, his automatic response is, "I can't." Even when it's something simple that he has done numerous times before. This week, I was done listening to those 2 words come out of his mouth! I told him we are getting a jar and everytime he says "I can't", he has to put a quarter in the jar. If he goes a week without saying it, he can get his money back. If the jar is empty for a week, he can get a prize from the dollar store. 😮
Some days have been better than others. When I told my mom about his jar, she said, Good! I need you to mow my lawn. His response was perfect! I can do that grandma, but I choose not to. Seeing that his actions are a choice as opposed to limitations is wise beyond his years. I desire my children to grow up knowing that they can at least try something instead of automatically assuming they can't do something or won't be successful. I would rather see them try and fail repeatedly than never take a risk or try at all!
What is something you're teaching your children?
🚨🚨🚨Y'all, this week was rough. 😂 I feel like a broken record saying that!!! My boys are just so intense and can go from laughing and playing to screaming and hitting in mere seconds, and it usually happens as soon as I turn around. 🤦🤷 The magic of new costumes won't last forever, and I gotta figure out how to navigate their dynamic or this summer is going to straight up kill me. 💆 Send me all your sibling parenting tips!!! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Cuma Di Ramadhan dan Lebaran
Bohonglah kalau Lebaran gak bisa dijadiin moment buat temu kangen aka saling maaf-memaafkan, iya nggak?.. Allah Kasih berkah di sini memang. .
Setelah Ramdhan yang sebulan itu mendatangkan limpahan rezeki bagi semua orang dan lapisan masyarakat. .
Kini Allah Kasih kebagahagiaan di hari Idul Fitri, kurang baik apa lagi Allah dengan segala Maha-Nya?.. .
Throwback Ramadhan deh, tempat mana yang gak diramein sama berkah?.. Tempat makan? Penuh buat bukber, perusahan retail?.. Apa lagi, berburu baju lebaran itu tradisi yang berulang terus, tempat gawe?.. Ini jatah yang ditunggu sama para karyawan terhadap bosnya. Mau muslim atau bukan kalau udah Ramadhan sampai Lebaran mah ikutan semua. Rahmatan lil alamin kan soalnya.
Apa lagi?.. Ehm
Masjid?.. infaq bukber untuk para jamaah dan musafir selama Ramadhan gak ada habis-habis nya sih, santunan anak yatim & duafa?.. Ini amal yang paling diburu siapa pun, belum lagi ada sahur on the road sama sharing takjil ya. Kumplitnya juga kalau kita rajin menyambangi kajian ya. Waaahh.. Allah Maha Kaya pokoknya mah. .
Emang bulannya Bulan untuk saling Berbagi sih yaa. Masya Allah... Baiklah sahabatku, jaga nuansa Ramadhan ini sebaik-baiknya. Jangan maen lepas rem kamu gitu aja. Sayang soalnya. Buktiin sama diri kamu dan Allah, bahwa bekas Ramadhan kita melekat selamanya. . "Make our Ramadan its like everyday" jangan mau dilepas sama Ramadhan, bisa sakit hati ini. .
Kuy, siap-siap memburu syawal. Jangan Kasih kendor apa lagi sampai lengah. Kalau Ramadhan betulan membuat mental dan hati jadi kaya baja, prove it!.. . "Taqobalallahu minnaa wa minkum. Shiyamanaa wa shiyaa makum. Kullu'aamin wa antum bikhair"

For my communications class, I was challenged to design a social awareness campaign for a proposed client on the issue of Fast Fashion. The project was to also target to a specific demographic other than my own. From this brief the "Become a Hero" project was born, with a focus on creating a relatable campaign to young teenagers between the ages of 11-15.

Just finished running a school dance for 110 children at Alexandria Park Community School. The stage 1 children had received 50 medley's each this term so their reward was a disco dance at end of term with The Jess Academy.
Can't wait to teach dance in term 3 at this amazing school! 💥✨
Today's featured mama, Megan practices self care with meditation. She says on the blog today "I’m a big fan of meditation. In the beginning I found it really hard to do but I can now do 20 minutes a day and I feel like it completely resets my mind and body." 📷@elephantjournal
