...What's one of the most valuable things you have in life? Your uniqueness and your individuality. Nurture them and don't be afraid to be you. People like you and admire you for you not because you imitate someone else. We all have areas in our life we need to improve on. So let's work on improving ourselves daily whilst valuing others for who they are and valuing ourselves for being unique and an individual.
...As we get older we start to spend less time with our loved ones (family/friends) especially as we get busy with work life or study. However busy you get, remember to take some time out and spend it with your loved ones. Its these moments that will become precious and keep us going in our later life insha'Allah :)

...Ever had a day when all was going well and then someone came along - said or did something - and bust you happy bubble? Yeah, been there too! But it's up to us to remain focused and take care of our world. Deal with the clutter and negativity - pop then in the trash bin and then regain your focus on what really matters. Its hard at first, but try it and it'll help you insha'Allah.
...If you want to learn something, anything then you need to give your 150% and full focus. Don't give up after a few times because you find it hard but keep at it - especially if its what you wanted to do in the first place. The art of mastering anything/any field is to give yourself (enough) time and sure enough you shall have it mastered! In the UK (and across the globe) everyone will be preparing for a new term at school/college/university. Why don't YOU enrol on a course and learn something new? :)
...Keep it simple. Keep it moderate. Keep it balanced. Deen and duniya. We're put on this world and Allah had blessed us with all the tools and resources to help us be the better us - to advance in all spheres - to truly excel and achieve greatness. We cry about our glorious past. Yes it was glorious! They had so much less and achieved so much more. We have so much more yet we achieve mediocrity. Now's the time. Don't sit there and wonder no more. Make this moment a glorious moment insha'Allah!
...Don't create drama where there is no need! Instead focus your energies on being a better you and achieving your dreams. In the process don't forget your family, friends and all those who have helped you on the way. But remain focused. Sometimes it'll be hard - I know how that feels - but we must remain focused - our end goal is the highest of Jannah next to Allah. But we have been put in this world. So utilise the resources Allah has given you and keep tawakkul on Him. Remain focused. Train your focus insha'Allah.
...In the early hours - in the darkness - in the silence, there is peace and there are answers. If God gives life to the dead earth then God gives life to souls which are dead. Turn to God for He will inspire and guide our souls to life...
'Be Yourself!' Celebrate your Uniqueness! Quit being like someone else. In Gods eyes You're someone Special! If you focus on yourself then insha'Allah you'll succeed. If you continue focusing on others then you'll always be unhappy and unfulfilled. You have one life. Take the chance and make the most of it insha'Allah! :)
Always choose to heal, not to hurt;
To forgive, not to despise;
To smile, not to frown;
To love, not to hate ...
At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built;
Not what we had, but what we shared;
Not our competence, but our character;
Not our success, but our significance ...
...Seek and YOU shall find!
If Guidance is what you're seeking then open, recite and study the Qur'an.
If a Role Model and an Exemplary figure to emulate is what you're seeking then read and study the Seerah.
