9 Simple Ways to Turn your Sorrows into Happiness ~ By Rukaya Idrees


C’est la vie. This is life. It doesn’t remain the same.

We fluctuate between sorrowful and mournful feelings due to tribulations or circumstances, as well as joyful and happy feelings when we are on the top.

Are you the one of those who surrenders to their grieves and his worries?

How can you deal with your grief and worries?

Let’s read along and learn about some guidelines to be happy in the time of grief.

  1. Ponder upon your blessings and look at those whom you see have less than you.

Sometimes we find a person who looks at others then he wishes for the money that they have, the palace that they live in, the friends that they sit with, then he feels sorry for himself. But if he remembers the blessings he has been granted then he will find that he is in good health and wellness, security, shelter and many other blessings.

Do not compare yourself with those whom you see as better than you rather look at those who are less than you in health, wellness, and money so that you may feel satisfied.

2. Try to forget and don’t be sad about something that was done and gone.

Sadness doesn’t change anything but only weakens the motivation and paralyzes you from work and productive outcome. And Don’t be like the one who says, I wish if I had done that, and then feels remorse. Rather make the past a useful experience, a learned lesson, for you to do better in the future.

3. Hope for a better future.

Don’t think a lot about the future and do not torture yourself with future expectations. We don’t know whether we will still be alive or die before it happens.

There are Many who worry and grieve about fate . Do not be one of them, instead live your life in this moment and work for your future without anxiety.

The Second Chance – By Dr. Sameena Khan


Every story begins with “once upon a time” and I have no intention of starting mine differently. Neither do I have patience for the niceties that must go along as the prelude to any story. I’d therefore like to get started. So here is how it goes:

Once upon a time, there lived a family (they still exist, by the way). They were an ordinary family, like every other that lives on the face of the earth. They had their happy moments and sad ones, they loved and the fought but whatever the circumstances, they were always there for each other. The father and mother adored their three children. The children in turn, loved, respected and cared for their parents. Like any other family, they nagged and complained about each other. They would find faults and would then forgive. So everything went fine in their lives. Nothing perfect, just fine. Until one day, it all changed. For the better. They were driving back home from the mall during the Eid holidays.
