Moments: Know that every moment you have is an opportunity.
An opportunity to grow, to excel to make your dreams a reality.
How do YOU spend your moments and what are you doing this moment?
Know that after spending a long day working, studying, looking after whomever you are looking after, worshiping you need a moment to rest. So when you rest give yourself permission to relax, to wind down so you can start fresh the next moment.
We need to give ourselves permission - to live in the moment and be in the moment.
Many will see this as negative - as if being in the moment we forget our past and we don't look towards our future.
No! By being in the moment I'm talking about giving full concentration and focus to what your are doing at that moment.
Stop living in a matrix and walking around like a robot - your're a human who needs to be in the moment and be aware.
Imagine driving whilst your tired - almost asleep - I know many have done that - and I know many have regreted it also.
As the Prophet SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said, "If the end of time is upon you and you have a seedling in your hand, plant it!"
Therefore, don't let a single moment pass by you without making the most out of it.
And yes that also means preparing for our life to come - and how/when can we prepare for it? Now, this moment - as this is all we have right now.
Is your next moment guaranteed?
***Be In the Moment***
'We might think of our mind wandering as a pleasant experience, but Harvard University researchers have found that only when we are fully present in the moment are we truly content. Throughout your day, stay focused on what you're doing and see how it makes you feel.' (Quote from email)
Be in the moment and give each moment your full attention and focus.
Ever been upset or so happy that you wanted to share your moment with someone yet they were only half listening? How did that feel?
Ever said something which you totally regretted and wished you just had one more moment to change it and make it right?
Ever wished you had just one moment to hold on to something or someone but in the heat of the moment you lost them?
Let's make it a habit to give our loved ones the attention and be in the moment with them - especially young children and the elderly.
***High Energy for Life***
One of the ways of being highly energetic and lively are to be in the moment and focusing on what you're doing.
If the mind wonders then you lose focus and you've lost the moment which in turn will make you agitated and will leave you feeling hopeless.
“...each moment is our only moment which knows the moment that was, that is and that will be – so make each moment count - in the remembrance of Allah, for we never know which moment of ours will be the last moment – so let’s leave on ‘La ilaha ilallah, Muhammadur RasulAllah.” (Last 10 Inspirations eBook - download your FREE copy here ---> http://www.webeinspired.com/ramadan-14322011.html <---)
Give someone a gift today - give them a gift of 'moment' and why not give yourself a gift - gift yourself with the permission of being in the moment - doing whatever it is that you're doing - enjoying and making the most of this moment! :)
