Ninie Ahmad: Off her yoga mat.

Her affirmations of staying optimistic especially when she's (upside) down.

I celebrate every day. Every movement. Every breath.

On my 27th birthday yesterday, I managed to

  • sing 27 karaoke songs (pranayama)

27 songs

  • stand on my head for 27 minutes (Sirsa asana)

Top & pants from adidas by Stella McCartney

I thank Almighty High Above for 27 years of life, breath, strength, clarity and light.

I promise You I will take good care of Your gifts lent to me; this mind, this body, these lungs, this spine, these lips, these hands

  • by respecting my body enough to not simply dump anything in my mouth in the name of gluttony / to not have to kill other living being for my survival (Non-harming in any way – Ahimsa)
  • by performing enough physical execise (Poses – Yoga Asana) to not let toxins and excessive fat govern my system
  • by speaking only words of  positive encouragements and truth to preserve your gift of truth (Truthfulness – Satya)
  • by allowing my heart to let go of material things (Non-Possesiveness / Non-Greed – Aparighara) that do not help me be a better person / live longer (Inner contentment – Santhosha)
  • by planting only positive thoughts in my head (Illumination – Tapas) to keep my whole system’s energy clear (Self-realization – Samadhi).

to hopefully be able to live another year in health, happiness and with Your blessing. Insya Allah.

  6. Happy belated 27th birthday, dear.

    By the way, I really like this — “… by allowing my heart to let go of material things that do not help me be a better person / live longer” — cos it helped remind me of the function of the things we buy, mostly not really essential and so, not to get too hung up on it. 🙂
