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.

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.

Be Strong

The Stars

Do not let your difficulties fill you with anxiety, after all, it is only in the darkest nights that the stars shine more brilliantly.

— Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Patience

Through patience great things are accomplished.

— Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Encouragement

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs crowded around the pit and saw how deep it was, they told the two frogs that they’re was no hope left for them.

However, the two frogs decided to ignore what the others were saying and they proceeded to try and jump out of the pit. Despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of he pit were still saying that they should just give up.

Eventually, one of the frogs took heed to what the others were saying and he gave up, falling down to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die.

He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

** There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day. So be careful of what you say.

Shake off Your Problems

A man’s favorite donkey falls into a deep precipice. He can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries. He therefore decides to bury it alive.

Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it. More soil is poured.

It shakes it off and steps up. The more the load was poured, the higher it rose. By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures

After much shaking off (of problems) And stepping up (learning from them), One will graze in green pastures.

Storms

The Universe

Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
