Piece of your mind.

Splash of colours for sunset today had me thinking.

It is that time where you must give them a piece of your mind. Just because you were quiet does not mean you were blind. They kept taking advantage because you have always been so kind. But you must sit with yourself and look at how Self Respect is defined. How you have always been thrown of by them, to yourself you must remind. It is finally time to respect your morals and values and let all those words out that you have combined. In yourself that inner strength, that lost soul you must find. And finally give them a piece of your mind.

Don’t remind an arrogant how to them you have always been so kind. All that you have done, to a selfish person don’t remind.  Every time you were there for them, don’t look at the past that you have left behind. Just do this to get your self respect back and hit them with reality that all this time you were not blind. You deserve so much better than what has been left behind.

But in order to move on to the next chapter, you must close this one by giving them a piece of your mind.

Cold!


Sunset out my window two days ago.

Sunset out my window two days ago. It’s cold but it is also gold

They often ask you why so cold? Why do you always say what you feel why are you so blunt and bold? Why do you not pause and think, why don’t you put your words on hold? They don’t like hearing the truth but it is also true that truth is always the gold. So before you say something why should you put your words in a mold? Why should you stop right before saying what you feel and then let your tongue fold? We have all changed and been sold. Because this world is so cold.

They don’t know your struggles, they don’t know how you grew old. Stating the truth is sometimes considered uncontrolled. You can’t be too honest all the time, recently I was told. The irony is that we all lie yet we are all searching for gold. You must do things like everyone else does, if you do it differently you are considered bold. When you are straight up and direct about something, you are considered cold.

Why must you always live the way as by others you are told? Why can’t you be the gold in this world that is cold? Why can’t you walk your way by being just a little bit of cold? Why must you always by others be controlled? Why is this world trying to shape us in to a mold? Why are you so cold? Why is this world so cold?

Faded memories


my heart melts when the sun goes down | past weekend sunset

My heart melts when the sun goes down | past weekend sunset out my window

Once in a while you remember something that happened few years ago. It’s amazing how much can change in just a year and how much you grow. The people that are sometimes a huge part of your life fade away and sometimes you wonder where did they go? But once in a while you shake those thoughts off and just go on with your life routine and everyday flow. The moments that once made your heart melt seem so long ago. The things and people that were a huge part of your life once and then you decided to let go. The memories you remembered so well once, now don’t seem to matter as much as they did a year ago. The things that once made you smile the brightest, now don’t bring on your face that glow.

So where did those memories go? How come on your face they don’t bring the same glow? When you remember them now how come you shake those thoughts off and go on with your everyday work flow? Why did you decide to let go? How come they don’t matter as much as they did a year ago? The moments that made your heart melt why do they seem like so long ago? Where did those things and people go?

It’s because God decided to unveil it for you and He decided to show. What was once covered He decided to uncover it just for you to know. It happened not to hurt you but for you to grow. You learned and got stronger and moved on with your life routine and everyday flow. And as you did that, on you countless blessings He continued to bestow. You still smile but for different reasons now and your face still glows. Because you continued to walk instead of cry over one thing that is why those memories seem faded and so long ago. Almost as if they didn’t happen at all and you remember them as a tv show. So standing ovation to you for all that you decided to let go. It is amazing how much can change in just a year and how much you grow.

Our hearts made of metal.


These fake hearts are more valuable; sad truth

These metal hearts are more valuable; sad truth

Its past midnight and I sit here and think. How heartless can we really be, I let this feeling inside me sink. You feel the pain of other when they are being unjustly treated because you find a link. But you do wrong to others so many times without even having a second thought or even letting your eyes blink. It is okay if you do it but wrong when others do the same. Only you have feelings while others don’t, such a shame. I can do whatever I want but when others do me wrong I can point fingers and blame. And we find happiness in watching people being treated badly because ‘oh they once did us wrong’… truly that is the world’s game.

But what is the matter with you why do you not help each other (Surah As-Saffat)? Why do you get happy when your mom is happy with you but gets mad at your brother?  Why do you not have the patience to slow your pace when walking behind someone who can’t walk fast?  How do you have the heart to stand there and watch a lion dragging a man away but rather making a video so it can last? When someone asks for your help why all of a sudden you are full of pride because they don’t know but you know it all? Why can’t you help one another it is not like by doing that you get small?

You hold a real live heart beating inside you. Is it as beautiful as you look from outside if someone was to look through? You can spend the whole day wasting time and money but you always give second thoughts if someone asks you for help or a dollar and two. You don’t know how to react or say two words of encouragement to someone who pours their heart to you. And then you sit here with a hard heart having no feelings towards anyone but you. It is not making you stronger but rather weak, it is sad how this world makes us believe the opposite, sad but true.

A heart dies when a human dies that is the truth. But your heart dies before you die if your world only revolves around you. My phone, my car, my clothes and my shoes. Of those suffering and dying please don’t describe to me that view. Because we are so busy living this fake life that we ourselves drew. The reality only hits us when the same experience we ourselves go through. How did we become so heartless? I am talking about me and you. Why do we not help one another through? It doesn’t matter if it is lending a pencil or giving in charity or even standing up for something that is true? It is all help at the end of the day and someone will appreciate it through. Wake you heart up and burst the bubble of this materialistic world that you created around you.

Step out to help the ones in need because Remember when you called on your God for help and He answered you (Surah Al-Anfal)?

The good in the morning, Sunshine.


Today's inspiration be my pillowcases and a beautiful morning outside.

Today’s inspiration be my pillowcases and a beautiful morning outside

I always loved my sleep and the idea of waking up late. This society want us being professional so why make all these university classes timings at night so late? Making us stay up all night and in the mornings we can’t wake. Then University ended and I started working, great! Where I have to be at work no later than eight. Sun is rising and I have to stand at the bus stop to wait. I am not complaining but at least let me eat and finish off what is on my plate. It took a while to get into that routine and I started to think straight. The beauty in the morning is so magical such a blessing let me just state.

I am in love with early mornings now that feeling so blessed. Where you see so many things happening only at that time who could have guessed. The golden morning, the birds chirping, the morning smiles from strangers, Oh I am definitely impressed! Before I was a sunset fan but now to witness the sunrises I am so obsessed!  These morning are what makes you keep going and gives you so much hope. There are there to teach you that after night the sun rises don’t let go of that rope. We all have our own problems and there are some with we can’t cope. Yet this morning comes everyday to teach us how to walk without slipping on that slope.

The sun rises and at that time the colours of this world are the most bright. If you don’t believe me go out early morning and on everything see that shining light. Everything will make you smile that comes in your sight. There is a lot more of the good in the morning sunshine. While you walk out there reflect on the One who created all this design. Who created the birds, the trees and made the beautiful sun shine. Get your thoughts together there is so much you need to achieve and your ideas you need to combine. And if someone asks you how you are feeling, give them your biggest smile, don’t just say fine! Go brighten up someone’s day with that beautiful smiles of yours that shines.

Buy me the sun!

You have the money to buy it all but can you buy me the sun? You won’t get this in your hands no matter how close to it you run. Control what you spend on those enjoyments that you call fun. There are some who are working so hard just to be rich they call it a chase I guess they like to run. We need money in order to live but does that mean we need to live for the sake of money … just answer that one.

They say money changes you as soon as you get it in your hands. It is when you show to the world that finally I can buy this and that. It is when you buy all these worldly things and you carry it around just so your wallet can look big and fat. What is the purpose of that? Just tell me about the happiness you feel while you are doing that? Those people that change because of the money in the hands. I am talking about the ones that think lowly of others and think they are now something grand. The ones who are walking around with those materialistic things just wanting for someone to praise and give it a second glance.

Here is the news it is not now that they changed in to that but rather they were always the same. Just because they didn’t have money in their hands they didn’t know how to display. It is true money can either ruin you or your life it can make. There are those people too that turn more humble and soft and want to spend it all in a good cause for God’s sake.

Now Think over which one will you be if you were to find a million dollars one day by the lake? Will you be the humble or the proud one today? Control your thoughts it turn into actions just so you can realize the reality and stay awake. You will never be able to feel happiness from that worldly run. Because it is the inner satisfaction only that can buy you the sun.

Please move back


Sunrise and my 6:30am bus ride

Sunrise and my 6:30am bus ride

Have you ever looked at the sunrise and thought how it gives hope. You are all confused and struggling but you feel like you are holding on to a rope. What is to come is better than what has been left behind (Surah ad-duha). Yet this world still wants you to move back into your thoughts and be blind.  Right when you run after this world it will break your heart. Will make you run after it until you finally learn how to be wise and stop. It does it again and again so you can know better and act smart. You are holding on to the rope with million temptations around you. So easy to fall for them I think this we have all been through. When this world gives you the thoughts that you were better yesterday compared to today so please move back. Push that thought away because it is just an attack. Trust in God it just wants you to lack. That is why it is important to always of your intentions keep track. So you can move forward  and with your thoughts won’t have to move back.

Stop here.


I enjoy waiting for my bus at 6:45 only because I get to hear the birds; today's morning inspiration

my usual 7:00am everyday waiting for bus, birds chirping and beautiful mornings

There are times you are about to do something and you hear a sound in your head. Don’t do it, don’t go on with it, if you do later you will regret. It is not a voice from you but rather God guiding you if only you would reflect. He works in His own way just  trying to protect. Maybe you are doing something that displeases Him and that is incorrect. you may still go on with it not caring but trust me later it will show its effect. So when you get that feeling or hear a sound to stop here. Just remember its guidance from Him because He knows what is best and He is the All-Seer.

 

Chasing the sun

The beautiful sun is at my window again. Its rays touch me but yet still so far away. Our lives seem to work in a similar way. Some days are full of sunshine following with some days that are gray. But behind the gray you will see a bit of sunshine once again. The cloudy days always finish with a bit of sunrays at the end. We complain when the good times in our lives end why don’t we complain in the same way about when the hard times are done? You are constantly struggling as the days pass by one by one. So take the Sun as the good times and the hard times are gray. I won’t call them bad because there is no running away. It is through those hard times you learn and grow. And the events of your life seem to have a balanced flow. Life would be too boring if we always had the sun if you only get to know. Even the richest of people are not happy so what if it doesn’t show?

There is a constant struggle of wanting more and more. When will we stop and not want this world so much anymore. Recently I attended a funeral and it hit me hard. What am I doing with my life am I keeping guard? When I saw the face of the deceased it was hard to take my eyes off. That was the reality Yes I did get a shock. We are all walking towards the same end. Some reach before us I see that as a good thing. Where is this world going it is hard to understand? So they took the deceased body on its way to the graveyard. I left the building after that and started walking towards the bus stop. I was walking towards the same way where it went. I just don’t know when I will meet my end. I hope to find light when I meet my end because when you try to imagine yourself 6 feet under the ground it doesn’t seem to be very pleasant.

Light upon Light (Surah noor) I try to imagine as I write. I can’t because it is unseen but it does seem very beautiful and bright. So what if some of your days are gray just hope for a bright end. As long as you see the sunshine know that better days will come. Because without struggles and hard times in our lives it would be no fun!
