Life with Grateful Heart

Gratefulness is another door leads to heaven 


To learn a valuable lesson it might take you ages, I have been totally fortunate that I got one of the greatest lesson of my life in my mid 20's . 

Being grateful πŸ™πŸ» 

I used to complain a lot about what I don't have and life kept on sending signs and lessons over and over and I kept on whining even more ! Until I had that moment when I was praying in middle of night asking Allah. For guidance and I had this feeling that I want to open my journal and it was filled with goals  and dreams of things I want to pursue  Seeing that I have accomplished many of those goals made me realize how awful I was treating my self my soul . 

And between the pages there was this sheet I printed it out from the secret blog "at that time this book was phenomenon " in one of those lines it says I promise myself to be grateful .. I may not got the right exact wording but the meaning was something like I wrote 

And I looked back and thought about things I have in my life ! I knew I have to change and I have to do it NOW 

SO in every prayer I don't only thank Allah but I also ask him how can I give back to him ... Am telling you my life has changed since then 



I know a lot of you been talking about gratefulness ! Have you ever thought why is it important ? 

- people always love to be with grateful people they have positive energy 

- it makes you healthy "lots of researchers have proven that " 

- more success will come to your way "trust me on that " 

- it train your brain to focus on good things in life , and whatever you focus on will come to your life "law of attraction" 

- you will sleep better cause your whole mind is just focused on goodness in life 



And if you ever wondered how to be grateful person , here are some steps that will help you as it helped me 

- keep a journal in which you write five things you are grateful for " will write a whole post about it " 
- read a positive books 
- if you know someone who is grateful be with him/her , or read about those happy people like Ohoud AL romi  for instance 

- here is a magical tip I learned from my gorgeous student @na3ma_k : every time she feels down she search for the most miserable people on earth . She cries and remind her self how blessed is she " so try her way it worked too 

- use a positive language when you talk 

- prayers are the most powerful way πŸ™πŸ»

My Experience with NO Snapchat

kind of awkward  post I know but I thought it would be nice to share my experience with you guys living for almost two weeks without snapchat


How did it start 

I always felt like I have to reduce checking on snapchat , every morning I wake up am like ok where is my phone whats new on snapchat and that is totally unhealthy
So I felt I should stop using it for awhile , after reading Michelle Phan Book specially the social media or digital detox part am like hmmm now it is the right time to do it ,  the same day I finished reading the book I was like Okay this is it! lets delete this App and have little peaceful break


Addiction Symptoms 

sounds serious symptoms huh ? well the first couple of days I would wake up and look for the snapchat app and then am like Woopss I deleted it , then I switched my snapchat addiction to Instagram "Funny how things can go " . right away I figured this is aint going to work so I kept leaving my phone the whole day after coming back from work and k…

What I am going to miss ...

Hello my beautiful readers I feel super guilty for not posting for such a long time I guess MAPP took most of my time or maybe I would have sometime if I managed my time a bit better don't you think ? :p
Anyhow believe it or not almost ONE month left for graduation !! I just don't know how time flies so fast , as much as I am super excited to go back home and re-live my normal life or the life that I love , I know that I will miss this phase of my life. This phase taught me so much about myself and its funny to say this  but MAN!! I am so proud of myself ^^ , so I thought of writing this post as I reflect upon the last 7 months.

There are so many things I will miss when I will go back home ....


- Being fully independent 

I know this might sound a bit awkward but when I moved to Philly I have experienced what is it like to be fully independent , having your own place , set your own policies for when to go out and when to come back home! have a financial plans. Back home things…

Living my dream

When I was a little girl I remember telling my siblings that I have two personalities; the first is Noof as they know and the other one is the American personality and I named her "Suzie" how funny is that XDit has always been my dream to visit USA and experience living there .... Guess what


Today I am at United States pursing my masters at University of Pennsylvania 
No Magic was required to make my dream came true all I needed was to "believe that it will happen in the right time " I know this might sound like ridiculous topic to talk about and what a goal !! to me it is not just to live the western life, it is to know my true self without any instructions, to appreciate everything that I have. Also to learn how to be independent. Most importantly I want to inspire others.

The journey to get here took lots of courage and determination I had to be sure that this is what I really wanted and I have to be clear why do I really want it. For me this has made a huge shi…
