Forgetting the past completely is a gift.
Letting go of the past bit by bit is growth.
Sleep heavily and know that I am here with you now. The past is gone, and cannot harm you anymore. And while the future is fast coming for you, it always flinches first and settles in as the gentle present. This now, this us? We can cope with that. We can do this together. You and I, drowsily, but comfortably.
by fine artist Carmelo Blandino
I feel strong. Not strong enough to face myself, but strong enough to keep going.
And they shall know you by the things you collected.
I now know that some people feel unhappiness the way others love: privately, intensely, and without recourse.
Sadness will visit you… Pay no attention to it.
Rather, seek aid in Allaah as He is the only One that can cure you and lift that sadness from you.
"My mother again would say to me you can’t eat
beauty, it doesn’t feed you …And what my mother meant when
she said you can’t eat beauty was that you can’t rely on how
you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is
compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul.”

I don’t want to say anything I don’t mean anymore, ya Allah. And may the words that come out of my mouth be of pure positivity and words of pure calmness. May I never raise my voice without reasoning and be always gracious and grateful towards everyone who walks in my life.
We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.
Body cells replace themselves every month. Even at this very moment. Most everything you think you know about me is nothing more than memories.
Thank God for Bal and Sheila today. Thank God for my sister. Thank God for Shaf. Alhamdulillah
Dear God I cannot thank You enough for the people you put in my life.
Dear God, only You know what’s in my heart and I know everything that you give me is either a blessing or a lesson.
Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah.
