Inevitably you will ever feel disappointed in your life,
You will ever feel discouraged,
You will ever feel become the most failed person in this world,
And also you might be able to complain and dilemma almost everyday in your life.
If you still feel that way ask yourself “Have you been grateful today?”
Grateful is the key of happiness and grateful is Allah Subhana wa ta’alla direct command to His servant. But not a few of us are still far way from grateful. Whereas the simplest way tobe grateful is to keep and maintain what Allah Subhana wa ta’alla has given for us. Even if Allah still gives difficulties, May Allah Subhana wa ta’alla miss His servant so He wants to embrace His servant by giving difficulties after difficulties.
One thing that is certain is Allah has promised “If you are grateful, He will enhance your favor”
QS Ibrahim : 7
“And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.”
Remembering Allah Subahana Wa Ta’alla (berdzikir) is the easiest way to bring gratitude.
You’re not alone
Everyone is struggling, struggling to survive, struggling to achieve the dreams, and struggling to fight with problems and difficulties that faced
If you’re tired, hopeless, uninspired and even fail, make them become your greatest motivation to get up and keep going. REMEMBER, You are not alone.
Q.S Al Hadid : 4
He is with you whereever you are. And Allah, of what you do, is Seeing.
Struggling isn’t always smooth. There will be gravel and even big stones but one thing that must be remembered “there is always a way for every obstacles“. Dont waste 24 hours that Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala give. If you have a dream try to start right now. “If not now, when? If not you, who?
Although struggling is exhausted, troblesome, burdensome and even jerky but remember your patient will create sweet results.
Q.S Al Imraan : 200
O believers! Patiently endure, persevere, stand on guard, and be mindful of Allah so you may be successful.
“Hardworking is a key to be success because success doesn’t come for idler”.
You are someone who always have never lost your sweet smile,
you are someone who always excited in every step of your way,
you are someone who always bring bright color for everyone around you,
you are someone who give positive energy,
and you are someone who always spread the kindness and joy.
“Are you truly Okay?”
or vice-versa …
You are someone who can stare around you with sad gaze. You are someone who are not longer intact. You are the one who needs to say …
“Are you Okay?”, “Do you need me?”, or “Take it easy, everything will be fine.”
You are someone who suffer the most, the one is the most hurt because pretending to be happy, the one who really need love, someone who are always alone and staring at the empty world.
In other words….
You are actually someone who chooses to keep each of your problems in your heart or who wants to challange yourself how strong you are to survive and find a way out or who doesn’t want other people to worry about you or who laughs to hide your sadness.
Whatever and whoever you are, You are the strongest person. Because you can be able to restrain your feelings and keep it alone.
Take your breath deeply,
Be grateful since you’re still given pleasure,
The pleasure of breathing in the morning air,
The pleasure, you can see loved one,
Surely, the pleasure to knell and raise both hands,
Let’s straighten out the intention,
Focus on what you have been planned,
Take positive things
Avoid people’s words which make you discourage,
Don’t forget to involve Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala
in every activities and situations,
No more procrastinating dreams,
No more doubts and fears.
No more selfishness and resentment,
Begin to encourage yourself.
Begin to appreciate and understand,
Begin to write stunning stories in a whole life.
Have you ever been in a condition where people around you continually criticized you?
“Hey, you’re getting fatter now”
“Hey, you look old-fashion wearing that kind of dress”
“Hey, look! Your face is too pallid what beauty product do you apply”
“Hey, you suitable to use this one, this one, this one, and this one”
“Blah… Blah… Blah…”
Those will be normal thing, if those are conveyed occasionally. Then how if those kind of words convey couple of times. Are those normal things?
What shoud be done?
If you’re in those kind of situations, the thing you must do is “COVER YOUR EARS POLITELY”. It doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate them. It doesn’t mean you don’t respect them. It doesn’t mean you don’t acknowledge them. It is because you can never be controlled by them. Only you know the best about your circumstances. You might be sad and hurt but REMEMBER “Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala gives everything in you at the best level and portion”. Never be angry, upset and even discourage with their troublesome. They haven’t just known how to praise you.
Cover your ears and go one step further,
Cover your ears and prove it to them,
Cover your ears and smile at them,
One thing you need to realize that they want you get your best and don’t hate them. Keep smiling in as much as your existence still has a lot of influence around you. Don’t be afraid, if they are still nagging. You are the only one who understand your heart well. Dont avenge the ugliness with ugliness.
As the word of Ali bin Abi Thalib Radhiyallahu’anhu:
“THE BEST REVENGE IS MAKING YOURSELF BETTER.”
Thank you for giving me birth,
Thank you for taking care of me,
Thank you for protecting me,
Thank you for teaching me many things,
Thank you for forgiving all of my mistakes,
Thank you for all of the prayers,
I complain a lot,
I often hurt you,
I often say rude,
Why do you always smile with everything I’ve done?
Teaching me to be a tough woman,
Teaching me to be a gentle and loving woman,
Even though your body isn’t as strong as it used to be,
Your hair has turned gray,
One thing is certain,
You still struggle to support me,
In your old days,
I will always kiss you,
as a thanks for being patient in raising me.
I wish I could take care of you,
like you care of me in my childhood
Your love will always be in my heart,
Thank you for everything
