“How tough of a tough cookie are you”, today I asked myself while taking an ungodly 3am shower and Paloma Faith’s Cry Baby was playing in the background. Oh the irony of the title.
Though tough enough it’s very rare that I get through anything without re-reading my ultimate pick me up and suck it up buttercup and I thought if it helps me it sure as heck will help everyone else! 😉

And of course one of my all time favourite for when it becomes a little…. unsure.
I’ve always strongly believed that it really is all in our hands, to a certain point. What and how we conduct ourselves and things around us goes a long way in determining what is meant for us, good or bad. If it’s yours, trust your effort to take you where you gotta go, but if you don’t get there, maybe, yknow, you’re not losing out on much anyway (so I’d like to think). 😛
“Let not the people come to know except of your happiness, and let them not see except your smile. If life becomes constricted upon you, then within the Quran lies your orchard. If you feel curtailed and restricted, then to the heavens raise your call. And if they ask you of your affairs, then praise Allah and smile.”
And another one of my favourite when it comes to spreading love! Nothing like a quick pick me u when you know you in spite of your worries and trials are making someone else’s day pleasant!
I hope this helps cause it sure does help me everytime I feel… bluer than blue.
