09 Ramadhan 1437H.
There is no end to it if you think of the aspects in which life hasn’t been fair to you. Put yourselves in someone else’s shoes and understand their perspective before evaluating how difficult things are for you.
I may complain and whine that I’ve been forced to grow up and take up the responsibility that adults do because there isn’t any choice for me as the oldest in the family but the one thing I forgot is to take into consideration of the closest people around me. I may have just lost a mother but for others, they may have lost a wife, a companion in discussing about personal matters, a person to share the financial burdens with and a partner in life.
Count your blessings and do good to your parents. For they have the key to bringing you to heaven.
“And we have enjoined man to do good to his parents.” -Al Ahqaaf, 46:15.
02 Ramadhan 1437H
“Ramadan is the month whose beginning is mercy, whose middle is forgiveness and whose end is freedom from fire.” – Prophet Muhammad
There are many many times in life where we wished that we weren’t born the way we are now after a fight with a sibling or when we are faced with tight financial situations or when we feel that we are not good enough for something or when we thought that we don’t have what it takes to achieve something, but the one thing we fail to realize is that every single thing that has been planned for us, whether we like it or not has its’ own silver lining.
Never be ungrateful for being who you are just because things don’t go your way. Be grateful and look on the brighter side of things because Alhamdulillah, it could have been worse. Don’t blame the bad situation, instead look at the situation and thank Allah for giving us yet another obstacle for us to learn from and improve ourselves.
Salam Ramadhan to all the fellow Muslims. May this Ramadhan be your best Ramadhan so far and fill it with various food for the soul and mind.
Dream big. The sky is so high, so wide and so blue that it is filled with endless possibilities and imaginations. People often do not realise how much a little dream can push someone to achieve their goals and be who they are today.
I want to start dream big too, so that just like anyone else, I too can achieve my goals.
We’re exactly 6 months through 2016 and I don’t really know how to feel for the fact that 2016 will end in about 6 months.
I’ve kind of made my decision on overloading my modules next semester because at least, I can get school done and over with. I don’t hate school, really but I just feel like there are seriously so much more I want to do once I am done with school and I can finally step out of whatever burden that’s been haunting me in my head.
They say that the world out there is tough and that we should “enjoy school while you are still a student”, but a part of me wants to explore that huge world out there and do what I love without any obligations tied down to me (of course, being a student has it’s advantage too).
I am really praying that I will be able to pull through my final semester next sem. Let’s get this done and over with by the end of 2016. Who knows, maybe 2017 could be the start of a new beginning for me? 🙂
(ps: I’ll prolly start blogging and ranting here again, just because.)
