Today is one of those beautiful days where I could think nothing but all sorts of goodness. And more importantly, I feel like I owe people and things around me many thank yous. For a reason or without.
So there, I shall thank you all wonderful souls for being part of my life- knowing you is a joy ;-)
Amidst this silence, I am especially thankful to God for letting me savor this moment of gratitude and thus able to spread His message of Love with everyone else. There is so much to be thankful about when you really think about it. For Islam and knowing its beautiful essence, I am truly honoured to be in this religion. It's always been a pleasant journey to learn so many wonderful insight hidden therein. I could only pray that this beauty stay with me for as long as I live. And even beyond that. Truly, Your Companion is forever felt and cherished :-))
Speaking of which, here is how you could perhaps show your gratitude to little things that have happened in your life. You’ll be amazed at the positive impact you’ll be making on your surrounding and yourself:
- Turn the tap off while you brush your teeth
- Repair before you renew
- Pick up local litter
- Make something with leftovers
- Switch your lights off
- Take your own bags to the supermarket
- Dispose of chewing gums carefully
- Only fill the kettle with what you need
- Recycle spectacles/ old mobile phones
- Use paper on both sides
- Use a pen until it runs out of ink
- Unplug your mobile phone as soon as it’s charged
- Don’t print it unless you really, really need to
- Turn your computer screen off
- Buy local products
-... and thank those who help make your day better. It's priceless.
The problem with our society is that we tend to care what other people think. Like it or not, we do something because of acceptance. And we don't do something because of the same reason. To be accepted is nice, that's when we feel most welcomed or appreciated. But sometimes, we have to get out from our comfort zone and do something that many of us won't do. Especially when you know you're doing the right thing. You may think that these little things you do don't count, because you're not on a bigger scale to cause that difference. And because that's what you've been told over and over by most people. But don't be most people. Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does :)
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks!
