Live laugh love.

'Live laugh love' will forever be my life motto. I believe in living life to the fullest and constantly learning amd improving but never really lingering and overthinking every situation. If anything bad happens LIVE on, it really does make it easier. LAUGH, find the funny side and enjoy everything, always. Don't take yourself too seriously. No one likes uptight people. But remain grounded and LOVE, just love deeply and truly. Care for others because friends and family are ultimately all you can count on when you allow them to count on you. They are the ones that teach you some of the most valuable lessons in life. Such considerate and true human beings are those who are treated the most kindly. So be true. Just be true to yourself and who you want to be. No one wants to be boring, grumpy or hateful. Just live laugh love, and be confident, cheerful and loving. Good night.

It's interesting what muslim girls/women have to say when it comes to their hijab...some don't understand it, some love it, some hate it, some understand it but don't like it, some are forced, some believe the headscarf is not even necessary and the list goes on.
I used to wear it but I took it off for various reasons which you may or may not get, but here it goes...
As a result of an impulsive decision, i put on a headscarf and even though i never really understood it, i didn't mind wearing it for quite some time. That was until I was 12 and the picture hasn't been as rosy ever since. the headscarf didn't feel right on me, I couldn't understand why it was compulsory when hijab meant modesty and i certainly didn't feel modest, (so when I wore it, I felt like a liar but you get the gist).
I kept my headscarf on for another 4years (basically until a couple days ago), this was mainly because I was in a Muslim school where a headscarf was part of the uniform; I didn't see the point in taking it off when I HAD to wear it 5 days a week anyway. I also assumed by the time I left my high school to go to college, I'd like it but evidently I was wrong. I was STILL doing research and trying to understand why it is I wore a cloth on my head and tried appreciating it whilst wearing it but it wouldn't work. Sometimes you need to be in absence of something in order to miss it & want it again (which is what I hope will happen). I did try wearing a headscarf in my new college but after two weeks I knew I wanted to take it off. I thank Allah for my parents because even though they want me to wear it, they understood my reasoning and aren't forcing me to wear it.
the way i see it, i can carry on doing what i have been for four years and learn why Muslims are told the headscarf is compulsory but to be honest, i don't think that will ever work...and it'll only make me want to remove it in the future. even then, i might be married then and my husband might not want me to take it off so i figure if i have this big revelation of hijab now then it'll be better as opposed to wearing it my whole life and hating it. does that make sense? :
S
anyway, you could probably say I've reasoned it in my head and made it seem like its acceptable to take it off when it isn't and you might be right but i think this is the correct way of following Islam in my head. i know theres a major chance i will not be forgiven for the sin I'm committing but inshAllah with God's Rahma He will forgive me and realise I'm only taking it off to understand it and put it on again soon...
since taking the headscarf off, i have to admit, i prefer it so much more. when you wear hijab, you represent Muslims and show them what a true, humble, modest person Muslims are supposed to be like but without it, I'm just myself. no one knows my religion and don't get me wrong, its not a secret or anything of that sort but i know the only person judging me is myself and of course God too. i can actually watch my own actions and check with myself if what I'm doing is right. i feel under less pressure but a better person. i guess I'm just finding out who i am as a Muslim before presenting myself as one to strangers.
in no way am i encouraging anyone to take their headscarf off, just letting you know my 'story' and opinions. if u have any advice, id love to hear it because i love the IDEA of hijab (modesty), I just haven't digested it properly..
anyway enough of this rant lol!

Not to be the girl who posts pictures of clouds, but this sky legit looked like Skittles should rain down from it.

PS: I have a question. What should I type in front of the little symbol that looks like a clothing tag? Is that like a hashtag? I still don’t really truly understand hashtags.
