"If I could give you but one gift, my friend, it would be the gift to see yourself as others see you. Then you would realise how truly special you are!" (Unknown)
...Been on a weekend course. I'm a curious and cautious being by nature. Caution is good. But too much caution and one may miss the opportunities. Here's my 'Life Lesson' or 'Breakthrough Moment' from today. 'Let your curiosity lead the way for you never know which narrow path may lead to an open and endless field of joy, opportunities and happiness'. I'm a changed being. Hope this helps you too!
...Become the alchemist of your own life, for all the answers you seek to your questions lie within you. Don't be afraid to listen to your soul - that is the real you!
We're hurting so much inside that instead of dealing with that hurt we hurt others. Maybe we don't do it intentionally - but we do it! They key is to face the issues and not run away from them - to deal with them and not hide from them. So many issues of the world could be resolved if only we all started to clean up our own yard first. This moment is that opportunity. Start to heal now so others can heal too insha'Allah.
If we want to make positive changes in our life then we have to take responsibility for our life. We can't go a life through blaming others. Enough is enough! You were created for greatness and you too can live your best life - if you give yourself permission and allow yourself to be you.

...Seriously though, whose ever achieved greatness or left a legacy behind after having a broken heart? They may have been inspired by a broken heart but is that what life is all about? Crying over spilled milk? How about give ourselves permission to be human, to have and go through human emotions and then come out stronger? We have only one life and this moment is all we have. Did God just create us to cry over broken hearts? Yes it happens, its life. But seriously our pious predecessors did not leave a legacy behind because someone broke their heart. So its time to stop wasting our precious time and finally take control of our emotions and life. Enough of reading those heart breaking quotes and re-living those hurtful emotions. Seriously you're better than that and God created you for something better! Cease this moment insha'Allah
...Tomorrow is not guaranteed. This moment is all we have. The past won't return but has many lessons for us to learn. Learn them. The future is promised to no one yet we have faith and we prepare. Prepare for it. And as we do be present - be in this moment and focus on it - as these moments are what make up our whole life
...There are Shepherds, there are sheep's and there are wolves. Which one is you? :)
...Confused? Don't know which way to turn? Heart says one thing and mind says another? Hand your heart over to God and ask Him to guide and inspire it. We spend so much time with the creation and forget the Creator. Walk to Him...He's waiting to run to you! Really!
