Last Piece

Desire. With Ramadan upon us, we tend to use this month as a time for reassessment and refocusing our lives.
We desire accomplishment in this life and the attainment of a high standard for both, dunya wal akhirah.
We desire to change. Change for better.
 "Change always comes bearing gifts."
- Price Pritchett 
Positiveness. In this month, with the grace of Allah placed in it, it has given us a fair chance to get back on the track of goodness!
We do reciting & learning Quran.. Visiting Masjid.. Sadaqah.. Sabr & more!

Race. And now, Ramadhan is about to end. And at this last piece of Ramadhan,
I'm sure many of us vowed to continue this race for good deeds.

Muhasabah. Along this month of Ramadan, how are you reviewing your life and reflecting on your motivation and positivity?
Does your motivation and positivity come & gone as Ramadhan has come & gone?

Revive. Revive your intentions. Intentions are the key. One main intention and that is to serve Allah and attain the best destination, Jannah. InsyaAllah ^^

So they like you, do you like you?

“You are beautiful no matter what they say. Words can’t bring you down, no, no. Cause you are beautiful in every single way. Yes words can’t bring you down.” -‘Beautiful’ by Christina Aguilera
It’s hard to be beautiful and even harder to feel beautiful.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to wave a magic wand and eliminate all of the insecurities and self-loathing that is wrapped up in the struggle for beauty?

What if you could just walk away from it all and just live your life focused on what makes you joyful and confident?

When you look at yourself, ask. Ask, if Allah is pleased with you? In and out?

Among the signs that Allah is pleased with His slave is that He guides you to do good deeds and avoid haraam things.
“While as for those who accept guidance, He increases their guidance and bestows on them their piety” [Quran 47:17] 
Yes, we are beautiful in and out, if Allah pleased with us <3

You! Yes, you! The one reading this. You are beautiful, talented, amazing and simply the best at being you. Never forget that. (:


Setting goals isn't something you should do because it’s a new year. Goals should be continuously created as you think of them and revised quarterly if not after changes and other impact moments. Goals do not all have to be new super crazy far off ideas. Most of them should be reflections to improve habits and reinforce your ideal situation or vision of yourself and your accomplishments. You can use the new year to re-prioritize and flush out the old though. :)

Hmm. While it's easy to be busy and crank out the tasks on your to-do list, it's a bit more difficult to choose to do the important things to live your life by priorities that you set for yourself. But living a life of smart priorities is one of the best ways to become much more effective, to make the most of your time and reach your goals with less effort.

And I believe, one of the most important steps you can take toward achieving your greatest potential in life is to learn to monitor your attitude and its impact on your work performance, relationships and everyone around you. It takes time to improve. but life is never static. Sometimes we acquire certain habits, relationships, and perspectives that at one time helped us, but, for whatever reason, are no longer positive influences in our lives. After all, everyone start somewhere. And yours are now. That is your venue of starting. Now.
