Simplicity In Existing

God plans best,

God is great, he knows what’s best for us. And keeping a strong connection with Him is so important. He will save you from a lot of things, you might not understand it then and there and it might hurt a lot but…. it’s for sure best for you. So trust in Him and let Him lead the way.

We plan but Allah plans best, الحمد الله.

How do people expect others to become better and learn more if they’re not giving them the opportunity to do so?
It really bothers me when people sit here and look at beginners and say things like “you’re not that good” or “you’re not a professional” or other things that will put them down. Like how do you think professionals become professionals? How do you think they became good? By people supporting them and giving them the opportunity to become something bigger and better. By people allowing them to practice. By trial and error. Professionals don’t become professionals over night. It takes time to be something great, it takes effort to be something great. So please learn to support those around you. Learn to give them the opportunity to grow and succeed and become these amazing people who have passion and love for what they do. Don’t be that person to put them down and break their love and passion for whatever it is they’re doing.

 

As a woman, I feel as though we lack encouragement for one another in the female circle. We tend to put each other down rather than pull each other up; to the top. You don’t need to put another woman down to get yourself up. On the contrary helping another woman reach the top helps us all; one woman’s success is a success for us all. Also let’s not forget, representation matters, it is important for the younger generation to see all types of women succeed and become someone!! Someone they can look up to; we need all types of women up there to help guide them in this cruel unfair world. So why can’t we be kind to one another? Why can’t we support one another? Why can’t we find it in our hearts to wish each other well?We have so many beautiful, intellectual, and talented women out there who are succeeding in many different categories! Let us not sit here and judge one another. Let us not allow that green monster to let loose. Because lets be real, jealousy and hatred will get us absolutely nowhere, only kindness and support will help us move forward as a gender; and isn’t that what we want?

Learn to be kind, to love for others what you love for yourself, to be happy for others and what they possess and succeed in. For that is the true success.

You know, in some instances holding on can be so much more harmful than letting go. Holding on isn’t always the healthiest option. I know you may love them, care about them, and probably think you can’t live without them…but you can. You just don’t want to. You’re scared. Scared of having to continue life without them; even though staying with them means damage. It means pain. It means suffering. Not everything or everyone we want around is healthy; a lot can be extremely toxic. But being the humans we are, we don’t always care about our own health, especially when it’s someone we truly care about and love. A toxic relationship isn’t a relationship; be it a friendship, a lover, or anything really. A real relationship is a two-way street, meaning both parties must care and love and respect one another; and when one side doesn’t and abuses the fact that the other side does that’s where the toxins of this relationship begins; and eventually never ends. And when you’re not letting go and allowing yourself to leave; that’s where you’ll end up getting burned by all the poison.

One thing I regret doing when I was younger, although it didn’t happen much, was neglecting my parents. I did not give them the attention and time they deserved. As teenagers, we tend to be extremely cruel, especially to those who love and care about us. I wish I listened to my mother when she told me that one day I would regret the time I wasted around her and my Baba, because she knew all about it from her own teenaged experience. I wish we would listen to those older than us, who have been through our exact situations, and learn from them instead of having to go through problems ourselves and deal with all the consequences.

I’m close to my parents, and I love being around them; I always have and always will. I spent a lot of time with them, enjoying their company, learning from them, and so much more. I thought I did everything I needed to utilize the time I had with them. But guess what: Even with all this well spent time with them, I still feel like I didn’t give them the time and attention they truly deserved!

I moved away from home about two years ago and that meant less time with my parents, which was extremely difficult for me. I had never been away from them, and to be frank I didn’t know how I would live without them around me. I left and left them behind, I left and only had the memory of all the good times we spent together. I left broken-hearted. These past two years have been the toughest years of my life, not because I moved to a new state, not because I got married, not because I left my life behind, but because I left my parents’ arms. Not being able to hug my Mama every second of every day, not being able to have heart-to-hearts with my Baba in the middle of the night, not being able to wake up to their beautiful faces, not being able to say goodnight to them every night–it was all so heartbreaking to me, and I physically felt the pain of leaving them. Not going to lie: I cried a lot. I felt a lot of pain, and I took every and any chance to be able to fly back and see them, even if it was just for the weekend.

So for those who live with their parents, treasure that time with them, and appreciate them. Give them the love and attention they deserve, because you never know when the last time you are able to do that for them will be.

True statement. Change is difficult and exhausting but it’s what makes this world go round. Change is progress. Change is power. Change is beautiful. Imagine life stuck in one era because nothing has changed, nothing progressed. We cant move forward without change. So take change with open arms and embraced it!! 

We all wish things could be different. Things could be better. But do we take the steps towards it? Change takes effort. Change takes time. Why not be that effort and take that time? Be the one who makes a difference. If you have a vision, an idea, or a goal; start taking the steps towards it. How else do you think things in life will progress? If you don’t do it, who will? Don’t depend on someone else to make things happen, take control and do it yourself!!! Have faith in yourself and what you’re capable of doing!!

Eid mubarak everyone! I hope you had a blessed Eid filled with happiness and love! ❤️ 

“That Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds{6}So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it,{7}And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.{8}” [Sahih International][99:6-8]

We have a fair and just God. That even an atoms weight of good [or bad] will no go unnoticed, subhanAllah! 

And this concludes the 30 day Ramadan challenge AlhamdurAllah!!! We made it through another blessed month; may Allah accept all our efforts during this beautiful month! May we live to see it again InshAllah! 

Eid mubarak!!!
