اَلسَلامُ عَلَيْكُم وَرَحْمَةُ اَللهِ
It’s been so long since I have written on my blog. I really miss it, well I guess sometimes life gives you some blessings that are so close to the heart and then you forget even you own self. That was what happened to me too. The eyes should see the beauties of all that we are being blessed with and should deter anything that comes negatively to us. Surely, it is not that easy but it is the only way to move forward with no regrets.
Yesterday, I just thought how much time do I waste by just thinking about what to do with my time, daydreaming, procrastinating and I don’t realize all of it is gone. Being able to carry out responsibilities of home and family does make me a lot lethargic to have a time for myself. Who cares though, I would always have time for myself or at least I will try to make it up for myself.
How do you know it’s time to start doing something?
There is always time to initiate and start doing what you love doing. Once you are on the journey, things will start to happen. For instance, let’s look at my example, I have been waiting for a kid to play with and have fun with him. When he arrived, I was pleased but also a rush of emotions developed in me which made me a completely different person. I started listening for him to make a sound and I was all ready to do my work and it remains like that for one or two years I suppose. Although, I had a family support and strong people around me still I wasn’t able to manage my time well and that made me frustrated. But much more sooner, I was working even faster than I had ever worked before. This made me surprised and I started thinking about myself and the amount of efforts I am capable of doing. It not only made me much more alert but also I got a hang of relationships and true friendships. I believed and believed more. I happened to understand that my journey has just began and clouds are just starting to move away to make me see the clear beautiful sky.
Today, I am writing as I am watching my little sunshine smile at me and thinking how much exploration of this beautiful world still has to be made and how infectious a smile is. Allah has made these pathways for us to travel and reach Him in the best of forms which we can attain by persevering in our daily tasks. Increase your capabilities and challenge yourself each day to do more. Remember your only competition is your past self.
May Allah help all of us through our journeys and help us become a better person each day, Ameen.
