Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top. I hope you enjoy my blog!

My 16 Rules For Living

I promised you in this Rules for Living post that I'd give you my own Rules for Living. It took me a few months, but here they are:
  1. Never put yourself down. There are enough people to do it for you.
  2. It's alright to flip out once in a while. Just as long as the flipping out doesn't take too long and then you take action to solve the reason for flipping out.
  3. You're the best version of yourself when you're in pursuit of your dream. And you attract good things to yourself. So always, always chase your dream.
  4. If it made you happy, don't regret it.
  5. When you're independent, people want you to depend on them.
  6. Don't do for people what they can and should do for themselves. 
  7. You have one body for your entire life. Take good care of it.
  8. The most successful people are the ones who apply logic in all scenarios.
  9. After applying logic, listen to your instinct. It's almost always right.
  10. Never overestimate others' intelligence. Never underestimate your own.
  11. Life is too long to hold grudges. And carrying all that anger around only tires you.
  12. Never reveal your weaknesses to anyone. Work on them secretly.
  13. You can be your own best friend by not letting others influence your judgment.
  14. Always stick with people who know they are flawed and ridiculous. 
  15. Be kind and gentle, being harsh and angry gets you nowhere. 
  16. Before forgiving someone else, learn to forgive yourself first.
