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.
A teaser from this weeks blog post 'Why Worry about It?' Dropping later today insha'Allah
...We all want to be loved. We all want to belong. We all want respect. We all want this from others. This is our expectation. But how many of us love and respect ourselves? Most days we're running away from our own issues, our own lives, our own souls. Yet we seek from others. If we can't love and respect ourselves firstly then why should anyone else love and respect us?
As soon as you switch your focus from others towards yourself the sooner you will start finding some inner peace. So focus on yourself and work on yourself daily. Set the bar high for yourself - not for others. We each need to focus on ourselves insha'Allah.
...Its very easy to break people but very difficult to build people. Question: Are we breaking people on a daily or building them?
...Start the day with the right intention. Actions come from intentions. Make an intention of what you want to do and achieve and then go work on that full on and when you make your intention make sure you add in there 'And God is the best of all planner - I have tawakul in Him'.
...Don't say 'I Wish' say 'I Will!' Don't say 'I Can't' say 'I Can!'. Try it at least! :)
...Do something today that has been scaring you since forever. Step out your comfort zone today - even if its just one step. See what a difference it'll make. Now stop reading and just go do it! ;)
Shaykh Bin Baaz (ra) said - "If the soul persists, the body does not become fatigued."
...See, the thing is, if I don't try then I will have failed for sure! I'm not a failure and neither a quitter. Each moment has a lesson to teach. So in life I figured that at least I'm going to try. Not matter what the outcome I will have learned something and I'll be back to the drawing board thinking of other ways of making it happen! At least I can say, 'I tried!' :)
...Each day compete with yourself to become the better version of you! Yes, be inspired and motivated by others - but don't hate on them - as we don't know their story, their struggle nor their journey. Focus on YOU and what YOU need to do for YOU! :
Everything in moderation. When both the soul and body are aligned then we can feel peace throughout. Don't look after the one and neglect the other. Usually we spend so long working on our outer appearance or our body that we neglect the soul. Or we become uber spiritual and fail to fulfil the rights of our body.
"You say that you are just a body, but inside of you is something greater than the Universe." Imam Shafi (rahimullah)
