Saturday: Don't fool Yourselves!
...Don't fool yourselves. Don't listen to them. You're not broken. You're already whole and complete. Things happen in life which swerve us off course. But when things happen they are in fact lessons - those which help us understand our journey, our life and help us make the right decisions. You don't need someone to make you whole again - except Allah. Turn to Him in prayer and remembrance and ask Him to heal your heart and soul. Don't just read this - run to Him now!
It's not just about PMA - positive mental attitude - there's a way to actually develop that - it's about our thoughts, words, actions behaviour. It's about believing in the Divine and being hopeful. It's about our intention and sincerity. It's about working hard. It's about living on purpose, with purpose. It's about our ultimate vision - keeping the end in mind - Jannah al-Firdaus.
Sunday: You have the Power...
...If you don't like what you do, work or study - then change it. You do have the power to change your situation. You have power to change your thoughts. And once you change your thoughts you'll clearly see opportunities to better your situation. Maybe no one told you you have the power. Maybe someone always put you down. Look at their life and look at yours. Maybe they are 'living the life' or maybe they are 'stuck in a rut' - that will answer a lot of your 'why' questions. So go ahead right now and come up with three different things/ways you can start making some positive changes in your life. And please share these posts to inspire and motivate others to start living the life they always dreamed of! You have the right to live your best life and the power to make it happen - God is with you each step of the way!
Tuesday: Learn Something...
...Learn something new today. It'll change the way you think and believe about yourself. It'll change your life. The first step to positive change begins with ourselves. God helps those who help themselves.
Sunday: Deep ocean of the Soul...
...Deep, deep, way deep in the ocean of your soul lie the answer to your questions. You already know what you have to do. But you build a wall around your soul. Scared of getting hurt - again. But hurt opens up the doors to answers. Finally we can heal. Want to make positive changes? I did too. But I couldn't. Had to break the wall. My soul has always been free. But I was shackling it myself - with my own negative emotions. I broke those chains. And now I'm free again. Now I understand. Now I can be who I'm meant to be. And I know you can too. I know its hard. I've been there. Just that one step. God is there. He's there - just for you - so take that step now iA
Friday: The Emotional Stuff!
...To begin to make positive changes in our lives and to start eliminating bad habits and replacing them with good ones we need to deal with the emotional stuff - yes, that stuff which we keep buried and surfaces every time we start taking a step towards positive action. You may want to start reading more books, as an example, but every time you start you just can't - why? It may be linked to something way in the past and reading was involved. We need to heal that part of us. This is true for many areas of our lives.
"Remember failure is an event, not a person." Zig Ziglar
And although it may seem like a failure on the surface, in fact deep down there is wisdom in it and a lesson to learn. Be open to possibilities. Be open to learning - from all events and situations. Its these events and situations which make you the person who you're supposed to become
Friday: We're Hurting...
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.

Wednesday: Switch It!
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.
