Love Don’t Let Me Go

This is a song that will forever be on my playlist and I love it for every occasion! I think this was David Guetta at his best, Its on ALL my playlists, work out, get outta bed, party, feel good, shower and I still want to dance every time I hear it. I remember the first time I saw this music video was probably the first time I saw Parkour and I was so gripped watching it. Its just a song that is really good for raising your energy frequency ❤

Dear Zizzlers! I just got my 10,000th Subscriber, Thank YOU XxX

Hey Zizzlers!

So today I reached my 10,000th subscriber just 7 months after launching Zizzleblog.com! Your support has literally amazed me and I want to thank each and every one of you for the time you have spent reading Zizzle. I created Zizzleblog with the intention to make some kind of positive impact on people’s lives, I just never imagined it would be THIS many people.

I try to start every day reading a positive or amusing quote or watching a funny video, it sets the tone for my day. We’ve all had those mornings when you don’t want to get out of bed but this is my way of eliminating them. When you’re feeling down your energy is vibrating on a lower frequency but feel good things will boost you back up, and for me it’s just a part of my day to have these feel good moments because it maintains my higher frequency. I try to share quotes with you daily because I know they make a difference to you as well. I’m all about the law of attraction and using positive thinking to create the life you imagined.

I often talk about gratitude, for me gratitude and happiness go hand in hand. If you are grateful for the good you have in your life it will keep coming, dwelling on happy moments and appreciating what you have also puts your energy on a high frequency. Thinking of bad times and what you don’t have will ensure that your mood and frequency drop and sadly your just inviting more of it by giving it more importance then what you DO have. I think we often complicate life when it is so simple, “If you want to happy…just be!!”

I know that you’re a pretty interactive bunch, you comment and reblog but I would love you to get more involved, If you have something blogworthy to talk about, drop me an email on zizzleblog@gmail.com and your article may be featured on Zizzle.

Fashion and Beauty updates will keep coming but 2014 is going to be a big year for my Travel section which I will tell you more about soon.

Thank you all for reading and sharing, writing Zizzle was always just a fun way for me to express things I care about or things I like but you give it meaning and I truly appreciate that.

Have a great weekend!

Lots of Love,

Zohra xxx

Reflecting By The Pool

As I lay by the pool, the echoes of Jamie Woon played through my headphones while I read,

“Camus once said that “Real generosity towards the future consists in giving all to what is present’ well that’s exactly what I did. I knew I had to change so I decided to listen to my heart and do it in a very dramatic way. My life became so much simpler when I left the baggage of my past behind. The moment I stopped chasing the big pleasures of life, I began to enjoy the little ones, like watching the stars dancing in the moonlit sky or soaking in the sunbeams of a glorious summer morning. And India is such an intellectually stimulating place that I rarely thought of all that I had left. (…) Every event has a purpose and every setback its lesson. I have realised that failure, whether of the personal, professional or even spiritual kind, is essential to personal expansion. It brings inner growth and a whole host of psychic rewards. Never regret your past, rather embrace it for the teacher that it is” (The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari)

I put the book down and watched the breeze form ripples in the water as I reflected on my personal journey. These words reinforced lessons I had learnt during my time in India. Life isn’t perfect for anyone, we all have our ups and downs but I believe the way we deal with our lows enhances our capacity to really enjoy those highs and make them last. Remember, “there are no stars without darkness”. Crappy times make you appreciate the good times 🙂 The more you experience the more you grow.

I also believe in taking time out to appreciate the micro-pleasures in life, in fact I blogged about it around 2 years ago (You can read it by clicking here). I think this is a wonderful tool for getting yourself back to a high frequency. I think of human emotion as frequencies, when you are happy you vibrate on a high frequency and when you are sad you don’t vibrate at all or worse…you give out negative vibrations. I used to consciously try to take time out for micro pleasures but now it is second nature to me. If I’m out and I see a beautiful sunset or scene I will stop to enjoy it and take pictures, If I’m having a bubble bath I will light a candle to make it feel like even more of a treat, if someone does something small that enhanced my day I will take a moment to write them a little note, thank them or smile or whatever (it’s the little things). Gratitude is so important to getting you back on a high frequency because you’re focussing on everything you have. Most people on a low-frequency choose to focus on what they don’t have…as a result they get even less.

Never think that because of a series of unfortunate events, your life is doomed. The more you say “Whats next” the more life will keep throwing you curveballs. And DON’T keep talking about it to people. Do you have that one friend who has been in the same crappy situation forever (or maybe you are that friend)? No matter what you tell them they just can’t get out of this whirlwind of a life that they are literally drowning in. That friend is probably your moaniest of friends, they tell everyone the same sad story and you know what…THEY are making it the focus of their life and so is every person they tell so guess what, its gonna get worse. Have a person you tell if you need to but realise the more people you tell the more negative vibrations you are putting out there. Realise you can’t change the past, your present situation is what you have so pick yourself up and say “things can only get better”. Focus on micro-pleasures, they will get you back to some kind of positive frequency and talk about those instead of bad things you’ve experienced. Slowly you will begin to attract better things into your life if you focus on whats good!

I know this may not be plausible for everyone but…I would also highly recommend a trip to India lol the Yoga and Meditation retreat literally changed my life. If not India take some time out to go somewhere alone where you can walk amongst nature and build a picture of your happy future that you can start working on when you get back.

Don’t think about the past, its done! Forgive, forget and focus on your amazing future 🙂

Love Zohra x

Diary Extract – 6/9/11

beach-paradise-300x225

As I lay there, the world felt as though it stood still but only the ebb and flow off the tide remained. I lay on the shoreline with the waves lapping against my feet and my head resting on my sand pillow. I breathed in sync with the waves and as I looked out to see it seemed neverending. Expecatations, goals and deadlines filled my head.

Its always good to set yourself goals and ambitions but not depend on them to the point where you feel like you’re drowning because they’re unaccomplished. To ask and know you will receive is the way it should be but I’ll be the first to say its not an easy thing to do. You must always ask what you want with your whole heart and believe you will get it, if there are doubts you have to ask again with full faith. As I looked up at the clear blue sky I whispered to Allah, “You know what I want and I know you will only give me what’s good for me.” with that came so much release. Every time I exhaled I released my negativity, I felt each wave touch me and carry my worries millions of miles away with it.

Sometimes we get impatient but we have to remember that once we’ve put our dreams, wishes and desires out there, they will be answered if they’re meant for us. If not, we have to put faith in God or the Universe or whatever Ultimate Power you believe in to guide us to our chosen path.

As I lay there I realised just how much I love the ocean, the sound of the waves splashing and somersaulting. I grabbed handfuls of sand and squeezed it out of my hands like clay. The waves raced to fill the holes I’d made and I lay there smiling, because I could 🙂
