Why you get caught up in jealousy (2 min read)

BUniQ

Hey Friends
Remember I said every emotion carry within itself a hidden message?
See that post here if you’ve not seen already》》Every Emotion carry a hidden message
Jealousy is felt when a person stops focusing on his/her own growth and begins to focus on other’s growth. Feeling of jealousy is sending you a strict message pleading with you to focus on your personal growth.
It’s calling you to ask yourself questions like
Am I being disciplined enough in my studies/prayer life/work?
What are some abilities I really need to develop now?
Which area of my life do I need to major, which do I need to minor?
When good things happen to people, appreciate them and know that it only takes hardwork and time to get there.

Appreciating the good in other people doesn’t always come easily, right? How can we inculcate this habit into ourselves so that jealousy…

Black Friday Deals and Steals

RAFA FARIHAH

Thanksgiving is coming up and as much as I’m looking forward to cooking up a feast for my family, I’m especially excited about the Black Friday shopping. There are so many trends I’ve been eying at Zara, Forever 21, and more. Although many stores mark up their items before adding on a “holiday discount,” some sales are just too good to pass up.

Boohoo

 As if their clothes aren’t cheap enough, Boohoo is offering 60% off its entire store on Black Friday. You can get most of the tops, dresses, and jackets for $10 or less. Definitely a steal!

Shein

Shein is one of my favorite online stores. Starting Thanksgiving Day, Shein is offering 60% off its entire store, along with a BOGO 99% off deal for some items. Make sure to snag their tops and sweaters for $5-$10!

10% off if you order using a new email

$10 off…

The Crow Reborn

“Man, though well-behaved, at best is only a monkey shaved.”
– W. S. Gilbert –

No, I seriously don’t think that quote by Gilbert is a fair one. As much as I like our funny simian cousins, especially in their natural habitat, I don’t believe that monkeys can define friendship the way we do; at least not consciously.

In my book, friendship is a relationship between two or more people who hold mutual affection among them. This mutual affection can be caused by lots of things. It can be caused by the needs to be able to trust someone, the needs to receive affection and sympathy, the needs to share ideas and experiences, and many others. However, there is one that I always think is the most important reason of all, and that’s the needs to be yourself, and thus to be able to express your feelings and make mistakes…

Minimalism: Less is more

RAFA FARIHAH

It’s officially the first day of fall but this Houston heat hasn’t backed down even a smidge. It might even be mid to late October till we get a cool breeze around here during the daytime. My wardrobe sure as hell won’t be waiting around for that (trust me, we’d be waiting till January for a decent drop in temperature).

It’s a new season, and I’ve got a new fashion approach I’m willing to take on. It’s trending, it’s in, and it’s what all the broke college kids are talking about these days — minimalism. You mean like minimal body coverage? Ummm, no. It doesn’t mean minimal effort either. Minimalism is about living with fewer material possessions and making the most of what you have so you can focus on what’s really important in life. This can mean redecorating your home in the simplest way possible, reducing clutter, and donating…

What Finding Out My Dog Is Sick Has Taught Me

Being Lydia!

First of all, I apologize for not posting sooner. Life kind of got away from me. I have been down with a cold turned bronchitis and spending time with Violet. Also, this has been a very difficult and emotional piece to write.

Last Saturday we took Violet to the vet. She had a lump in her throat that seemed to be growing, was not eating and had other symptoms that concerned us.

We were quite worried on the half hour drive to the vet. Violet is 13 years old and has several health conditions. We know she won’t live forever, but we also want to make sure she isn’t suffering.

The appointment showed that all of her lymph nodes are swollen and sore. The vet alluded to the fact this is not good and may very well be cancer. He took some samples and on Monday called to say that…
