Daily30: Choosing what’s best for you.

Assalamualaikum,

In this huge, huge world, there are an abundant of opportunities for us to grab. There are millions of doors to be opened and endless amount of paths to walk on. And while there may be tons of things that appeal to you, or that there are multiple things that caught your attention, sometimes you have to know when to turn something down and choose what’s best for you.

I read through a couple, and found one website that had something I kind of enjoy, and felt like, okay, let’s do this. While in the back of my mind, there’s this nagging thought that says “dude you’re so going to regret writing about this“, but oh well. Here goes nothing.

When have you given up on something?

Daily30: What Makes Me Happy?

Posted in Daily30, Personal

Assalamualaikum,

Today’s Daily30 post is inspired by an anonymous question I received on my Ask.fm account, and since I’ve left it unanswered for more than a month, I figured that it deserves a pretty solid answer in the form of a 30-minute blog post.

What’re the things that make you happy?
