Fullness of life

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Courtesy

Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy.

– Jacques Maritain

There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.

After the storm, comes a rainbow

GOD DOES NOT BURDEN A SOUL BEYOND THAT IT CAN BEAR.

— Quran (2:286)

It is important to understand that every hardship that we face in life is a test from God. It is a test of patience, devotion and trust in God. God does not burden anyone with any trouble in which they are unable, physically or mentally, to bear. This means that regardless of the situation, God is choosing to test you with that challenge because He knows that you can get through it: that you are strong enough. So trust in that, trust in that strength that God gave you. Because after the storm, comes a rainbow.

Don’t quit

Live your life

Shine Bright As You Are

Your past

Don’t allow your past to control your present or your future life, whatever happened you must let it go. Leave the pain of your past behind so it cannot ruin your future, leave the darkness of your past behind so it cannot block the light of your bright future.

Your past is gone, whatever happened, whether unjust, cruel, harsh, whatever the case, reliving the events will never do you any good.

If someone did you wrong the only way you can win is if you let go and move on. If you live in hate they win, if you live in the victim story they win. If you want to win you must focus on building your future and start right now.

Release that weight from your back so you can be free, don’t allow events from the past which are now gone to ruin this moment which is perfect, this moment which is now to enjoy, which is ready for you to live fully.

Other people’s opinions and judgments

Don’t allow other people’s opinions and judgments to control the direction of your life. The need to fit in and feel wanted can cause you to travel down paths you don’t want to travel. People pleasing is a curse that should be avoided at all costs.

Before you do anything ask yourself, am I doing this because I want to do it or because of my fear of judgment from others if I don’t. You were born unique for a reason, you were born to stand out, to be appreciated and loved for who you are.

Don’t dim your lights so you fit into the dull background of other people’s lives. Shine Bright As You Are. Those who really care for you will see that light and shine with you.

Insecurity – What holds us back

Fun with Philosophy

We all doubt ourselves sometimes.

Thoughts like I am not as attractive enough or I’m not as smart and intelligent enough or not as well-situated in life as I should be. Even the feeling of having all the potential in the world, but that something being there to hold us back.

Comparing ourselves to the people around us, and that just makes it worse.

I find myself in these infuriating situations all the time. In fact even after achieving what I want to achieve, these questions still come, am I really good enough, is this person better than me, am I really there yet?

What I have also realised is that a lot of my insecurities exist where I have yet to prove myself to myself.

These are all examples of insecurities and self-doubts.

But what I have learnt (and am learning) from all of this is that if…

Luquman’s wisdom

Try to get it!

Prophet loquman’s advice to his son..let’s listen to it…

A016

“O my son!” (said Luqman), “If there be (but) the weight of a mustard-seed and it were (hidden) in a rock, or (anywhere) in the heavens or on earth, Allah will bring it forth: for Allah understands the finest mysteries, (and) is well-acquainted (with them).

A017

“O my son! establish regular prayer, enjoin what is just, and forbid what is wrong: and bear with patient constancy whatever betide thee; for this is firmness (of purpose) in (the conduct of) affairs.

A018

“And swell not thy cheek (for pride) at men, nor walk in insolence through the earth; for Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster.

A019

“And be moderate in thy pace, and lower thy voice; for the harshest of sounds without doubt is the braying of the ass.”
