Small Heart

Alhamdulillah, Praise to ALLAH SWT for giving us this small heart to live and breath in this temporary world. Instead of complaining about what we don't have in this world, let's Thank ALLAH for what we currently have and be grateful. ALHAMDULILLAH.

Some of us are being so ungrateful. They provide us with free shelter, free food, free knowledge, free for almost everything, and allowances and yet they are some of us are always complaining about everything. Be grateful. You will never have this opportunity to have the luxury of having almost free of everything with full paid of salary or allowances.

"For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends."~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."~John F. Kennedy 

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."~ Oprah Winfrey

"Learn how to carry a friendship greatly, whether or not it is returned. Why should one regret if the receiver is not equally generous? It never troubles the sun that some of his rays fall wide and vain into ungrateful space, and only a small part on the reflecting planet. Let your greatness educate the crude and cold companion. If he is unequal, he will presently pass away; but thou art enlarged by thy own shining."~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meaness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whomever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
~Jalaluddin Rumi
