Hidden behind the screen.

Hidden behind the screen.

Sitting in a busy restaurant with all my attention on my sweet kids, and their naughtiness I randomly checked my surroundings and saw my hubby busy in mobile phone, then few other tables, most of the people with families or without families were busy in the same activity.

I felt lil bad, and I said to Hubby: Are you doing something important?

He said: No just …..

I said: hmmm …….

Laughing of my children bring my nerves back to normal and I get back to the lighter mood, they are my energy boosters, my power bank 🙂

Food served after few minutes and we had a lovely yummy EID dinner together.

……..

 

Now the question is, all the people who were using cell phones while sitting with family or friends, on the same table and as per my thinking they were absolutely there to enjoy and spend some quality time together?

Then why they need this cell phone?

Are we so much tired of talking and sharing to HUMANS? Oh let’s say, human around you, MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, SPOUSE, CHILDREN, OKAY USING JUST ONE WORD —FAMILY!!!!!

And speaking before anything more let me make myself very clear, I am not against cyber world friends or relations , I know and I believe that good people are everywhere , I have so many friends also ,but What I am trying to say is ;

PLEASE DO THINGS ON RIGHT TIME, ON RIGHT PLACE AND IN RIGHT WAY.

We must understand the values and emotions of people around you specially your family.

Well, this is where we stand today, we know the pain, problems, hobbies, future plans, daily routine of our friends and colleagues but we don’t know WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR OWN HOME. We spend whole day  with them and then after coming back to home we are still busy in chatting with them , liking their posts on FB , sharing stuff on whtsapp, and your parents, your grandparents , your life partner are waiting for your time.

SAD BUT TRUE!

In my country where we live in joint families, Parents and siblings are all living under the same roof, and still we don’t have time for each other? We are so much indulged in this social media and cyber relations, thanks to FACEBOOK, WHTSAPP and easy mobile phone internet packages and rates.

WHY?

I WONDER, WHY?

ARE WE AFRAID OF EXPRESSING OURSELVES IN FRONT OF EACH OTHER?

SHYNESS?

FEAR of LOSING ?

FEAR of ANGER?

WHAT?

Thinking, thinking and thinking …

Yes the only reason I understand is , It’s always easy to express feeling to unknown and to the person who is not directly linked to you , because he responds you comfortably even for the blunders you make, and he can give you advises and encouraged you and SHUTDOWN the window. TING TONG BYE BYE.

And when it comes to family you are afraid of REACTION.

Afraid of Anger, sadness, tears, you are afraid that you can’t break your family trust, you can’t show them that you are depressed, broken , can’t move on … You are just afraid of MIXTURE of reactions which could possibly occur.

BUT, All I wanted to say is YOUR FAMILY LOVES YOU AND THEY WILL NEVER SHUT DOWN THE WINDOW. THEY DON’T NEED Wi-Fi TO CONNECT.

They are always there for you, good or bad, but they are with you .They deserve you and your deepest feelings, your time, your tears and smiles they deserve everything that belongs to you.

WHY CAN’T WE JUST EXPRESS AND SAY THINGS, JUST LIKE WE DO WHEN WE ARE INFRONT OF SCREENS. WHY CAN’T?

Have faith on your loved ones. Trust them!

You will be happy and peaceful if you treasure them RIGHT NOW.

TODAY they are here with you, who knows what tomorrow brings or takes!

PLEASE, SPEAK OUT YOUR HEART, LOUD AND CLEAR.

FAMILIES deserve respect and love.

And on lighter note ..

I am still 16 – OKAY 85%

Standard

“Keep a diary, and someday it’ll keep you.”

– Mae West

What a saying, Today daily prompts, forced me to open my diary when I was 16. I bring it out and start reading. I read it for about 1 hour and just forget why I brought it out from my old bag.

My diary, kept me, preserved me in my sixteen very well. I smiled and get sad also while reading the random pages. Okay let’s say I am 85% still like 16 years old Afsheen, Surprisingly though! And I am glad that the lost 15% was not worth enough to keep at all.

I had taken some clicks from my diary, I want you all to meet the 16 years old Afsheen by yourself!

……….

This is the most difficult topic ever; I could not decide who I should discuss here.

My Father

 My mother

My sisters

My brothers

My nephews

My niece

And

My husband

I AM SO CONFUSED…… each one of them are so important and precious in their own way. They are the reason of my living and my smile. Whatever I am doing in my life is just because of them really!!!

And why I love them?? There are millions of reasons.

They are my best friends, my strength, my power, my pride, my happiness, my wealth.  They simply give me reason to live.

 I love them all and I respect them all.

They all Makes me Number ONE.

MAY ALLAH BLESS THEM ALL WITH THE HAPPIEST, HEALTHIEST, WEALTHIEST, RESPECTFUL, SUCCESSFUL LONG LIFE AMEEN.SUM AMEEN

I am not Lost

Standard

In life we faces so many changes and gone through so many transitions, so many phases that seems unbelievable for us to face and handle, but some how we do, we all do! Happily or sadly.. we have to…

Birth to death… black to white… day to night… childhood to elderly… 1000’s of losses… many of us resist all these shocks , few could not manage to live their life as they were living before , and few loses themselves after their lost. They just lose their hopes and urge to live life.

I have faced many hard times also when i have to give up or let go or lose, but manage to survive all. After every loss i sit alone for a while and think what really happens? what went wrong?  Am i not good enough to have this ? …. but after hours, days, weeks , or sometimes months i stand up again with all the strength and hope.

One of the recent loss was my miscarriage. First time , it was like hell, burning my soul , i was all broken up , because we were so happy , but we could not make it. It took me a month to realize that Allah has something better for me. Allah then my husband, and my family supported me and i realize things gradually. I hope and pray that we ( me and my husband ) will have this blessing one day.

All i believe in is, Love, that brings care, respect, support , kindness, and will power. Love gives me strength to live and live happily.

Thanks Allah for all his blessings.

I love this picture and have this on my office desktop for many days. I want to share it here.

All gone leaving ONE !

What a topic today !!

Tell us about a time you found out after the fact that you’d been mistaken and you had to eat a serving of humble pie.

Really its soul shaken…

33 Years of my Life , i wanted to become a person who pray 5 times a day , who recite Quran daily , Who speak true and deny every lie and false. Who lives a life – like a True Muslim. Sometimes i perform all the basic practices of Islam and sometimes i fail. But thanks Allah, that HE Almighty Allah is the most kind and helpful for us, prefer our judgment on OUR DEALING WITH HUMAN BEINGS rather than Preaching HIM only. Namaz (Prayer 5 times a day), Fasting, Reciting Quran only are not enough to be a MUSLIM.

But sad – very sad, I am neither a PERFECT HUMAN nor MUSLIM.

There is a list of such Moments when I felt I was mistaken. But Thanks Allah none of them was so serious or damaging that makes me feel regret still. They were all the mistakes which a learner can done while learning the lesson which life has to taught us.

One such regrets I have which is not painful now because it makes us (I and my sister) laugh NOW. I remember when I was 16 years old , My eldest sister was 10 years old , she gifted me a Dark Brown bear with a pen on my birthday (First time ever), and bought the same for herself which was White in color and more cute than brown. I took the gift and said; “You bring better for yourself I don’t need this gift and thrown it away” She gets angry and may be hurt also said: “I gifted this bear to you because I liked it for you’’ … She lefts in anger and I realized what I have done!! …….. It was BAD until I make things better again with my sister.

One day, I had a hard talk on some issue with my mother and I left home in early morning for work without having breakfast which she made for me and I hit the door hard and left. But all the way to factory and then during work I was ashamed of my act and I didn’t concentrate on work at all. I was guilty on my behavior, I came back home and sit with my mother, didn’t said sorry but she knew I m sorry and she smiled. Mothers are blessings and May Allah blesses all mothers.

And a list like these goes on….. But I am lucky that I m blessed with everyone love and respect even I sometime don’t deserve.

I believe, we stop regretting the moment as soon as we apologize and forgiven by the person who we hurt the most in the whole situation.

But yes I still have one, why I didn’t met My Husband in a very early age. I can be a very better person if I get marry with him when I was 20. I know after marrying him I am a much better human being.

Thanks Allah for all his blessing HE showers on me always.
