Simplicity of Relationships

I've been contemplating this for such a long time now that I just have to let it out and post about it. Although I have to prepare my Arabic presentation tomorrow and revise Islamic Studies, I just feel that I need to blog more.
I just want to talk about relationships with people these days, and I mean relationships in general, whether they're with your friends, classmates, family friends, or any one else. I'm just wondering why do we have to make our relationships so complicated? I mean, for an example, why do we always have to blame others if they forgot to keep in touch? Why can't we instead make matters simple and take a step and keep in touch.

That's just a simple example that I've noticed, if you don't send people messages, they'll be like 'oh you forgot about me.' Why can't we instead try to understand our friends' circumstances? Why are we failing to come up with excuses for people? It's something that has been really making me think, why people choose to make stuff complicated? Why not live in simplicity and goodness and be the one reaching out to our friends and loved ones?

And I want to add something else, which is if your friend didn't invite you over for their house, or if they had a party and you weren't invited, why do we simply take a stand and make things complicated, maybe they just didn't want you there.
It's not very pleasant but let's focus on something here, which is you can't have a nice life if your relationships with people were complicated, your life would be complicated since you'll be not talking to that because of a certain situation, and you're not friends with that because she forgot to keep in touch.

Let's be the better person, let's try to make excuses for people, let's be simple while dealing with people. If you do that, first off people will like you more because you're simple and easy to be around. Haven't you noticed that there are a few people when you're talking to them you're very careful with what you say because you're scared they'll understand it the wrong way? Who wants to be friends with people that make you uncomfortable?

Oh and don't get my words like I mean you should step over your pride if someone hurt you, I'm not talking about that, if people did you wrong then you have the right to take a stand but let's not let things go that far and befriend people in a nice way that it'll be difficult for them to do you wrong because of the positive look you have towards life and how you build your relationships with people...

Anyways, maybe that was too random but I believe in it strongly, I'm sorry I couldn't put it in a better way because my mind is too occupied to be editing and writing creatively but I hope you all got my message.

Tips to brighten your day

From this:

To this:

So it's not everyday that you spend a nice day, some days are a drag! So in those days, all I wanna do is lift up my spirits. I have a few things that help making me feel better and I'll share them here with you...

-Have a facial, or put a mask or a scrub on your face, it definitely helps me because it makes me feel more fresh (lol, I sound like a fruit!! :P)

-Put on some lotion, if you're not one of those people who put on lotions daily then some lotion would definitely make you feel better.

-Wear something nice, even if you're not going anywhere, or stay in your PJs and put on some accessories. Sometimes people look good because they feel good but in this case maybe you're going to have to look good to feel good.

-Listen to some songs that can help lifting up your mood, and don't listen to sad songs because they'll make you feel more down but listen to dancable songs like for me I'd listen to Forever by Chris Brown or Shawty Get Loose for Lil Mama or any songs that you can move to because dancing and moving around will definitely make you feel better.

-Watch a funny video/ tv show/ movie.

-Go stand in front of the mirror and do your hair in a weird way, believe me breaking your hair style will definitely make you feel differently.

-Make yourself a cup of tea, it's great and it makes you relax.

-Be nice... (I know it's weird, but like when you're down and you do some acts of kindness towards others it will definitely make you feel better about yourself)

So that's what I do, or try to do when I'm feeling down and I want to lift up my spirits, do share what are your methods of making yourself feel better....

And I hope everyone's having a nice day. ;)
