Thankfulness and Remembrance

Remember when you were so worried about getting a good job that you love? Now you have the benefit of experiencing that job satisfaction that many people can only dream of. It is also a satisfaction that is crucial to sustaining life in this materialistic world. So dont worry about the other setbacks that you are currently faced with. They will all work out, step by step. Everything will fall into place. Just dont lose hope and keep finding solutions to your problems. Never ever let yourself get stuck in an emotional or a spiritual rut. Things will work out. One day, you will look back at these current problems that will be a thing of the past and have more things to be thankful about.

Awareness for Change

As long as you are constantly aware of your situation, there is still hope that you can get yourself out of it. That bad feeling you have in the pit of your stomach? You should get rid of it by removing the cause of that feeling. Listen to that voice. Embrace the awareness for a positive change.

Your Heart

You can be the person with the most beautiful heart.. If only you dont let it get tainted by the evil people that you crossed paths with. Dont let your heart become ugly with anger and hurt. Protect your heart and it will become its most beautiful self once again.

The Face

If the face is a manifestation of the soul, I wonder how attractive he would still be? I wonder how I would be?

New Age Female Oppression

Why do many girls nowadays settle for someone who does not really love them and yet they work so hard to please that person? I was one of them. I was made to believe that I am the crazy one for wanting too much. I was told this too many times until I started to doubt myself, which lead me to forgetting myself. I spoke to several girls who are still stuck in this web. They choose to brag about what they supposedly have. But underneath all that showing off, after speaking to them, I know for sure the pain that they go through for allowing themselves to settle for love that is less than what they deserve. It must be the mindset of "I wouldn't rather be alone". It takes one to know one. I have been there and I know what they are allowing themselves to go through.

I just want to pose this question to them: "Wouldn't you rather be alone than be with someone who makes you feel terribly alone most of the time?"

But the sad thing is, I think I might know the answer. They will want to stay for the brief glimpses of joy that they might get. Might. Imagine, having lost the hope for a genuine, happy future, in exchange for such fleeting joy that you know deep down will never be truly yours to share. What a wicked deal.

Beautiful Morning

I had been really really down and lost these past few months. And finally, something very traumatizing happened last night, to cap off that extremely painful journey that I had. I did all I could to not let myself fall in that crucial moment. However, I knew I would still have to face every second of every day that comes after that, and I was very fearful that I could easily slip away and fall really hard, judging by my past.

As I was going about my business in the morning, this phrase kept running through my head:

"Wadhdhuhaa. Wallayli idzaa sajaa"

I felt it was a weird thing that would suddenly interject my thoughts. I thought it had something to do with the morning, due to the translation of the word, which I remember. I wanted to know the rest of the surah though, but I couldn't remember so I looked it up.

What hit me, really hit me home. All perfect, and poetic. It was extremely beautiful.

*****

In the name of Allah, Most Beneficent, Most Merciful.

I swear by the early hours of the day, and the night when it covers with darkness. Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor has He become displeased, and surely what comes after is better for you than that which has gone before. And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased. Did He not find you an orphan and give you shelter? And find you lost (that is, unrecognized by men) and guide (them to you)? And find you in want and make you to be free from want? Therefore, for the orphan, do not oppress (him). And as for him who asks, do not chide (him). And as for the favor of your Lord, do announce (it).

*****

I then knew this is His favor for me and I want to record this beautiful moment in writing. It's as close as I can get in reliving this perfect moment when I reread it. In a way, also announcing this good news, to anyone who might be reading.

He has been very merciful to me. He knew I couldn't handle the trauma by myself this time, after the pain that I went through before this. So He sent me good people and guidance when I needed them the most. I shall indeed pass the good vibes around. Positivity breeds positivity.
