Demotivation. I. Am

Assalaamualaikum Wa Rahmtullahi Wa Barakatuh,

You know those feelings of demotivation, depression, sadness, loneliness, that you get every once in a while? Well whenever I feel like that, I try to look forward and focus, because we as insaan, tend to lose focus- lose sight of the bigger picture in life. We always stray towards the meaningless- but I wanted to tell you, that it's natural to get upset, I mean not everyone is happy all the time! We all get down, but we just need to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off, and start afresh.

Starting afresh means, reflecting on who you are, and what you need to do. It's not just for deep thinkers, its as muslims, we should reflect on ourselves, to improve. The time when you get upset, or lonely, remember Allah is there for you no matter what, then it's just about reminding yourselves of the glorious bounties of Allah (SWT) and getting excited about the little things-like prayer, optional fasting, small sunnahs etc. If you make it exciting, you won't feel sad. La Tahzan InnAllaha Ma Ana' meaning dont be sad, Allah is with you (or us).

Do you realise, that when every person you depend on lets you down, the only one who has never let you down, is Allah (SWT) . Not many people realise this, they get caught up on the betrayal from a friend, or being let down by family...when to be truthful, you don't need anyone but Allah (SWT)! You know a great way to always feel happy, is talk to Allah. Tell Allah about your day, your problems, what your thinking, feeling...Allah is the best listener, you know? It might feel silly, but it will help you feel closer to Allah(SWT) and constantly remind you that Allah(SWT) is watching you.

Lastly, if you do get sad, even after these tips, remember how easy you have it, compared to our beloved brothers and sisters around the world. Ya Allah! Imagine our beloved brothers and sisters in Syria, Gaza, Pakistan..etc, they go through a much bigger trial than us! Allah tests us, to make us better people. I remember someone saying to me that it's like being cleaned, you know when you get a sieve and sieve away the bad, or unnecessary flour or whatever, you are getting the best at the top, right? In the same way, Allah cleanses us through the trials we face, whether we pass or not AllahuAlam! But it's getting the best out of us, if we want to attain Jannah Al Firdous, we need to be pure, have Ikhlaas(Sincerity), you know? Don't see problems for whatever reason, whether your under pressure, or stressed out, as bad thing, see it as a way to attain closeness to the almighty! Now my sisters, I want you to go away feeling happy, because Allah wanted you to read this, maybe because you were feeling upset, this message got to you for a reason, so don't ignore the advice inshaAllah! Cheer up! :D The same goes to me! :D Allahu Akbar! JazakAllah Khairan for reading, and I hope you have a blessed afternoon!

(This was a short post, I know, it's just cause' I felt like writing! InshaAllah next post will be longer + more videos, and quotes!)

Wasalaam. :D

Happy music

Life takes us through so many hurdles, so many journeys so many discoveries of ourselves. Do we ever just sit and think about how we came to be the person that we are now? I know I have been through a whirlwind of different personalities, different phases, feelings, thoughts, dreams. However I have remained somewhat constant- what I admire about myself is that I believe in myself (not necessarily my abilities) but I believe and support my actions regardless, and ... I'm glad I have strong principles, I guess it makes me who I am. Despite what I've had to sacrifice for them.Over the years I've always wondered who I'd be. In fact when I was younger I would dream of how I would be when I was older. (Older being past 20's) I'd imagine I would magically transform into this strong, independent, accomplished woman. And it would somehow come to be at this magical transition to adulthood. Oh how I would tell myself it's not that simple. Life is not that simple. We n…

Capturing my heart

I've been watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. It's been an interesting journey of suicidal thoughts and the teenage angst in high school. I feel enlightened to a certain degree (bearing in mind it is for entertainment) I feel like the message Hannah passes on to Clay is very similar to the one Virginia Woolf wrote to her husband before she committed suicide. I can't help but feel there's so much tragic beauty to these notes, so much beautiful poetry. I've always said there's so much beauty to sadness.       But you need to be here if I’m going to tell           my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy — you’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you. It was me and everything that’s happened to me."

What im grateful for

I must say my post titled '23% complete' is one of my good posts, I don't know what's a bad post of mine (with no arrogance intended) maybe the posts where I'm not thinking enough or encouraging my readers to think more? Anyhow I've been at placement for about a week now and I can honestly say I've learnt a lot. I've learnt practical skills but that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how grateful I am to be in a career where I can impact lives' daily, I sincerely hope I am helping others even in the smallest way. I am grateful to be able to listen to others who have not been heard by society for a long time, those who are deemed as 'old' or 'forgotten' , I feel privileged to listen and provide comfort. I am grateful that I can aid others in their difficulties and make them feel better, because everyone needs to feel better sometimes. I am grateful to be that someone who can make a difference when I had noon…
