craving: to make a difference in someone's life
We often take life with a grain of salt. Always taking stuff for granted and thinking and wishing and hoping and praying everything will go as we plan. Well, I have news for everyone who thinks this (let me take my own words in heed, too) Our life is already written for us. God said in the Quran...
The only thing that can change Qadar (Pre-ordaiment or destiny) is prayer or Dua as we Muslims call it, this was mentioned in our Beloved Prophets hadiths."Nothing will happen to us except what God has decreed for us: He is our protector": and on God let the Believers put their trust."(Qur'an 9:51)
How do I find my therapy? I find my therapy when I'm praying our five daily prayers, us as Muslims pray, it's my time with God. I cry to Him , talk to Him, complain to Him and confide in Him.. That alone makes me feel happier, calmer a lot more grateful.
I would love to share this with all my followers out there. I know exactly why I'm blogging. I want to make a difference in people's lives. Since I've became Muslim this is all I've tried to do. I like it,.Nah, I LOVE it. There's something that makes my life a lot brighter when knowing I've made that little difference in someone's life.
I read this wonderful book a while back, and still continue to reflect on it, till this day. It's made a difference in my life. I pray with all my heart, it makes a difference in your life too.
Don't be sad -- Life is shorter than you thinkDale Carnegie related a story of a man who had an ulcer that became aggravated to a dangerous level. Doctors informed him that he had very little time left to live. They insinuated that it would be wise for him to make funeral arrangements. Suddenly, Hani the patient - made a spontaneous decision: He thought to himself that if he had such little time left to live, why not enjoy it to the utmost?
He thought, "How often have I wished to travel around the world before I die. This is certainly the chance to realize my dreams." He bought his ticket and when the doctors became aware of his plans, they were shocked. They said to him, "We most strongly remonstrate with you and warn you: If you go forward on this journey you will be buried at the bottom of the ocean." Their arguments were in vain and he only answered, "No, nothing of the sort will happen. I have promised my relatives that I will come back to be buried in the family plot."
He thus began his trip of mirth and joy. He wrote to his wife saying, "I eat the most delectable of dishes on the cruise ship. I read poetry, and I eat tasty fatty foods that I have hitherto refrained from. I have enjoyed life during this period more than I have in my entire previous life."
Dale Carnegie claimed that the man became cured of his sickness and that the energizing path he took is one that is successful in defeating disease and pain.
The moral: happiness, cheerfulness, and calmness are often more efficacious than doctors' pills.
