QUOTE OF THE DAY: WORK HARD

Hi everyone,
Today I like to share with you the following quote;

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
Leah LaBelle

HOW TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF



By Leo Babauta
There was a long time when the lack of belief in myself was a major factor in my life.
I didn’t pursue an ideal career, or start my own business, because I didn’t think I could. I didn’t stick to habits because I didn’t really believe I had the discipline. I was shy with girls, I had a hard time making new friends, I didn’t assert myself in the workplace. I didn’t push past my comfort zone.
All because I didn’t really believe I could.
While I’m not free of self-doubt these days, I can honestly say I believe in myself like never before. That doesn’t mean I think I’ll never fail or quit: I will. Probably often.
And that’s OK.
The trick is that I learned it’s completely fine to try and fail, to put yourself out there and not be perfect, to say hello to someone and have them not instantly love you, to create something and have people judge you.
Failure, not being perfect, mistakes, not having people agree with me, not being completely accepted: these are not negative things. They’re positive.
How is failure positive? It’s the only way we truly learn. For example: you can read a book on math, but until you try it and fail, you’ll never see where your lack of understanding is. The best way to learn something is to study it a bit, then try it, take practice tests, make mistakes, then learn some more.
How are mistakes positive? They’re little pieces of feedback necessary to grow and learn.
How is being rejected positive? It means I’m growing beyond the absolutely socially acceptable realm. The best people in history were not socially acceptable: truth-tellers like Socrates, Jesus, Gandhi, Proudhon and Bakunin, Martin Luther King Jr., animal rights philosopher Peter Singer, unschooling pioneer John Holt, women’s rights activists, abolitionists, and many more.
These things we’re afraid of — they’re actually desirable. We need to learn to see them that way, and embrace them, letting go of the fear.
When we can get better at this — which takes a lot of practice — we can start to remove the things that hold us back.
So practice:
  • Push past your discomfort, growing your discomfort method.
  • Put yourself out there, and be OK with not knowing if people will accept you.
  • Stick to a habit, not listening to the negative self-talk that normally holds you back.
  • Stick to it some more, and learn to trust yourself.
  • Go into situations not knowing, and learn to be OK with that.
  • Learn through repeated attempts that it’s OK to fail, that you can be OK in failure.
  • Learn through repeated experiments that you are stronger than you think, that you are more capable and more tolerant of discomfort than you think.
And in this practice, you will find yourself. And realize that you were great all along.

TAMARIND JUICE RECIPE ( JUISI YA UKWAJU)

Hi, leo nimeona ni share nanyi jinsi ya kutengeneza juisi ya ukwaju, ni rahisi na pia juisi ya ukwaju ni tamu sana.
 

                         TAMARIND JUICE RECIPE
Mahitaji:
  • Ukwaju 450 G
 
  • Sukari, kiasi unachotaka
  • Ndimu robo
  • Maji 2.5 liters
 
                           JINSI YA KUTAYARISHA 
  • Osha ukwaju vizuri kisha uache uchuje maji
 
  • Ondoa maganda ya ukwaju
 
  • Weka ukwaju katika sufuria Tia maji na sukari, weka sufuria jikoni washa moto na uache uchemke kwa dakika kumi , zima jiko na ukoroge hadi uchaanganyike vizuri.

LOVING SUMMER BERLIN: PINK STRIPED TOP AND BLACK SKIRT








Hi everyone. Hope you are doing fine.
I spent the last couple of days in Berlin with my family, we had a gtime. So I would like to share with you some of the images of my outfit which I wore in Berlin, that's  a pink and black striped crop top and a maxi black skirt. Then I decided to complete my outfit with  these accessories; black wedge sandals, a statement necklace, my husband watch, a simple ring and bracelet.




This was on the second day of our stay in Berlin and it was raining  during the day, so when the  rain stopped we decided to visit the Brandenburg gate (one of the most well-known landmarks of  Germany), then get a hot drink and later  we went dining and get back to our apartment.





That's all for now, next time I will share more images of our trip in Berlin. I would like to  say goodbye with this message;  "The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

Hi everyone,
Last Saturday we took our children  to visit and see lake of Enghien-les-Bains, in the department of Val-d'Oise.

I love this max dress because it's simple and easy to accessorize, I bought it at  H and M and the price was almost like free.

Happy Tuesday and all the best.

THERE COMES A TIME IN YOUR LIFE



“There comes a time in your life,
when you walk away from all the drama
and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people
who make you laugh.
Forget the bad, and focus on the good.
Love the people who treat you right,
pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life,
getting back up is living.”
