Hey momma. So recently I discovered that Tylenol and Advil can increase the amount of blood on your period. So I just wanted to let y'all know because for a while I would take Tylenol on my period and there would be an uncontrollable amounted blood. I looked it up and Motrin (ibuprofen) will help with all the same symptoms and lower the amount of bleeding. So for anyone with heavy flow I recommend ibuprofen. It works really well on me. I wish I'd know sooner.Hopefully you can spread the word! 😊

First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.

I once fell in love with a girl who literally broke my heart into a million tiny pieces. But even after all the tears I still found myself in love with her . It was like no matter how many times she hurt me, I’d always find a reason to forgive her. Whenever people would tell me she was a shitty person I’d get mad and defensive. Like you don’t know her, she doesn’t mean to hurt me. I mean what do you expect she was my first everything. Literally she was my everything. I was so in love with her I never thought anything she did was wrong or I tried to justify all her actions. It took me awhile but eventually I realized I didn’t deserve to be treated that way. Like it wasn’t okay. I realized that if she really did love me she wouldn’t of treated and hurt me the way she did. Sometimes loving somebody just isn’t enough. It just breaks my heat to see people bent out of shape over a person who isn’t worth shit. Nobody deserves that. You should be with somebody who wants to have you and treats you like you deserve to be treated. That acts like you put the stars in the sky and looks at you with no fear. Somebody who really loves you. Never forget indecision is in fact a decision. You deserve happiness, don’t settle for somebody who only has you around when it convenient for them.

A wise man once said to his son

 “My son, do not become resentful when you are afflicted with trials for indeed that is tantamount to having bad thoughts about ones Lord and also, it gives pleasure to one’s enemy.

Do not mock others for indeed by Allaah, every time I ever mocked anyone I was afflicted in the same way as the person who I mocked.

In this world man is a target of arrows that come to him successively some pass him by, some fall short, some fall to his right and others to his left and some strike him.

Know that for every deed you are rewarded and how you deal with others is how you will be dealt with.

And whoever is dutiful to his parents his children will be dutiful to him.

Avoid greed and ambition for both represent poverty in the present.

Fear Allah as much as you are able and if you are able to make today better than yesterday and tomorrow better than today and your secretes better than you outwards deeds then do so,

Beware of deeds you have to apologise for, for one never has to apologise for goodness.

When you stand for prayer, perform the prayer of the one who is saying farewell as if you feel you will never afterwards pray again.

Adhere to modesty and you will be of its people

Do not afflict harm upon others rather give them good and forgive if you are able.

Do not be miserly if you are asked for something and do not tarry if one seeks help from you.

Whoever is stingy then Allah will make things narrow for him and whoever gives then Allaah will give him a replacement for what he gave.”
