Salam and Good Morning folks! Hopefully today will be a good day for all of us ya, InsyaAllah.
While we eat, drink and go about our daily routine today, many people are despairing bout their lives, about their future, namely in countries where there are political unrest and also those countries hit by natural disasters. Right at this very minute and moment, people might be dying or are in great pain and suffering.
Let us take this time to reflect and ponder about our own lives. Many days we might complain and feel bitter about how we hate our jobs, or feeling particularly venomous towards some people around us, or maybe dissatisfied with what we have yearning to have something more. Don't get me wrong, of course we should continuously aim to have a better life, better opportunities but what we have currently should also be a source of happiness. There are always things to be grateful about. Little things do matter.
When we have these negative, bitter thoughts, stop and think about other people who have much less, and those who are in desperation in Libya, in Yemen, in Palestine, those facing calamity and life's brutality around the world and even the ones in our home front. Those people whose lives were brutally taken away from them, and those facing and struggling against fatal conditions. Ponder these facts and do realize, bukankah kehidupan anda sekarang banyak nikmatnya dan melimpah ruah dengan kelebihan yang mungkin anda tidak sedari? Syukurlah ke atas apa yang anda perolehi.
The job you have, the clothes you wear, the car you drive, people that you love, the house that you call home, all these can be taken away from you in a blink of an eye. In a hearbeat. And true as the saying goes, "You Never Know What You Had Until It's All Gone." Look around you, appreciate what you see.
Kenapa kita selalu tidak bersyukur? Why are we always finding faults with everyone, everything? Why are we always bitter towards life? It's not as if we don't have a choice. We choose what we want and then we DON'T want to live with it? Come on, be smart! Be positive about things, have a positive vibe (of course sometimes we are allowed to bitch about stuff, but please not ALL the blardy time!). Be nice and kind, IF you want that in return. Look at things in a broader perspective. Embrace life and everything in it. Then only you will have peace within you. And then only you will see that life is precious, it is a gift, and should be rightfully appreciated. Time is short. Life is short. Make use of it in a meaningful way. Hatred, bitterness, contempt...... try our hardest to refrain from these destructive traits.
As I said, life is too short to be filled with such negativity.
