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!!

God gave and continues to give us a lot. We need to remember that everything we have in this life is from Him and that He gave us everything for a reason. He might have given us all these things in our life to help others as well as to live. We need to remember that whatever we have in this dunya [life] is not only ours and that we need to give those in need. Remember what God said?
وَإِذْ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمْ لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ ۖ وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِي لَشَدِيدٌ
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.’ ”
In order to receive more from Him you need to give. You’ll not only receive good in this dunya [life] but you’ll also receive good in the akhira [hereafter], which is what really counts.
“What’s the whole point of being pretty on the outside when you’re so ugly on the inside?” -Jess C. Scott
Such a strong and true statement. There are so many that are “beautiful” and/or “pretty” from the outside- a pretty face, beautiful body, etc- and all; but what’s the point of having a pretty face when you have such an evil soul, petty personality, and you’re just an ugly person all over? No matter how beautiful you are from the outside… it will never cover the ugliness that is on the inside… the true you.
