Yo yo yo, amigos.. Hmmm.. No no, that’s too much. Hello you, how are you doing? Wait that is just plain.. Whassup homies? That is too... You know that feeling when you are not sure on how to start something, let’s say a conversation, an email, a blogpost? Well, welcome to my world!
As excited as I am to write my first blog post ever (I know, whoop whoop!!!), I just could not decide on how to ‘not sound silly, too gangsta, dumb’ but ‘to be engaging, fun and smart’. So while I was writing and deleting my intro for the 1000th of times, I said to myself: “Khadija, remember why you are doing this? Yup, so just be you. Authentic, quirky, weirdly funny and at the same time loving, caring and compassionate.”
My reminder was about the most important decision I took in life:
I took a decision that from now on, I will be happy every single day.
I know what you are thinking (isn’t everybody?), but let me share with you what brought me here. Somewhere last year, I had a moment of grand awareness. I was looking at life from a bird's-eye view and I felt like the whole world (read my friends, community and the old-me) is in a fight with others as much as with themselves. We work our a**es off, but we forget to enjoy doing it. We then take a holiday, city-trip, or just have a countdown to the weekend to escape the week. While with every news report that is sent out, negative energy is created in society and day-to-day lives.
It was then when I realised: I don’t want this. I want a satisfying, awesome, right-out-of-the movies kind of life. A life full of dreams, laughter and love. Seeing that a decision is only a decision when action is taken, I have spent the last six months transforming my life with one principle: I will be happy every single day.
It has been such an amazing, empowering experience that surpassed all my expectations. Committing to creating happiness and not letting it be a byproduct in life, is making me feel like a total badass and I have never been happier in my entire life!
