Life is exactly what you make out of.
Do not dislike things too much, or even love it too much. Protect your heart from such strong feelings..
Learning and self-taught is the best thing that ever happened to humans. And there’s a beauty in that. Such as, being able to accept things as it is or having to change it for the better.
Be your own THINKER. I feel like we live in a society where having to think outside the box means one must agree with the next person. If by struggling with self-confidence. Find a way to change that; practice makes it perfect. Be true to yourself though.
Let things be for the way it is. Spend your time with people who are worthy of appreciating you. Again as humans we make mistakes. Such as, trusting too much, getting betrayed, and being belittled. Never do too much or too less. Stay balanced.
Remember “after a storm there is a rainbow.”
Speak up if must. Cry, be angry, but do not make a life out of that. Do not be that person who need to make excuses in life to just get by.
Be a survivor, not a victim.
Just the other day I received the most heart breaking story. Things are not getting any easier on my end. My father is not getting any better; Allah knows best. I cried for hours, but I thought to myself “life is not always going to stay the same.” The young will become old. The fast will slow down in the end. It is not that I’m in denial, but I regret for not making enough time for him.
As soon as my father got sick, I was forced to grow up and take responsibilities. With The Mercy of God, I had the ability to not make excuses for myself and get up each and everyday and be there for my parents. Also I was granted with another day to make change in the world that I live in.
People ask me why I smile like a crazy person. If my father and the hundred other people in hospital beds can put a beautiful smile on their face and not complain one bit then I’d be ungrateful human being if I cannot manage to smile.
I told my father that he is beautiful just to see how he reacts, he smiled and said “you’re more beautiful than I.”
And sometimes I regret that I woke up too late.
My point is regretting is part of making a change.
She was loved for the way she listen and talk. She busy herself by over thinking and analyzing things just to get by in life. That is one of her biggest flaws, but she doesn’t know that she is loved and appreciated.
Somehow she seems like she got it all together. She would break her back for those that she loves.
Her smile is contagious
She is a giver. She never ask for anything in return.
Strangers feel comfortable being around her because the only thing she is good at is smiling.
Some people took her kindness for weakness. They try to make her believe that the world is not always about smiles and giving. She knows that the purpose of life is to do good as long she lives.
God blessed some of us with shelter, food, and health. That is the best of wealth.
You are meant to feel pain and pleasure because you’re a human. Do not be labeled by those that cannot appreciate your worth.
The very days that I feel like I don’t want to get up from bed are my one of a kind.
Those very days I want to disappear in my room are the days that motivate me to be better. To look deep into my soul and think to myself why am I the way I am.
The days I feel like it hurts to smile are the very days I that I strive to do the one thing that I am good at.
Giving smiles, and sharing smiles.
When you feel like you cannot smile my friend. Go walk up to the mirror and just smile, even if you don’t feel like it. Just try, because some wish to have such smile. 😄
Smiling is the best emotion that one can express. Its also the most beautiful mask you can wear when you’re falling to pieces.
“Every Act of Goodness is a Charity” -Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)
When we think about giving. We automatically think giving is about the amount we give.
Actually, it is never about the amount, it is about the heart that gives.
That is a sincere giving.
I want to do a little reflection on the quote above.
The very first thing that comes to my mind after reading the quote is that, I think we can give with our actions.
Giving a smile to the one with no smile is a charity itself.
We live in a world where everything is so fast; technology. And we expect our minds to be faster. We don’t stop a minute to appreciate our surroundings. Sad thing is that we only give when we expect things back. Though Allah Azawajal blessed us with life itself, by being grateful for that, we think of those that are above us. We always want something. It is never anything.
We do not think of those that can’t have the basic needs to survive.
Being human means, being able to feel pain, pleasure. And we have corrupted ourselves by thinking that the pain of others is not our pain.
Again giving is not about the amount one gives, it’s the heart of one that gives. That itself will last forever.
Something so expensive that a billionaire can’t afford is the heart, and even if they do they can’t beat itself. It’s up to you to grow it or let it die. That is something that will forever be with you.
