Salam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh dears.
My sisters friend has a severe sickness, and Ive been thinkin about her and, like she also wrote in her blog, how fragile our life is. Heres link to her blog: http://www.stoori.fi/helpostiparempaa/tissit-tiskiin-nuorten-naisten-puolesta/ .. Tears came out when I read it. Shes such a sweet person.
I have bad habits, bad for health, and it has keeping bothering me a while now, long while. My goal is to quit at Ramadan, in sha Allah. I feel like this is the age, Im now 28, that I should really start to take good care of myself. Diet is going ok, I try to do some workout at home 4-5 times a week, and keeping also stress away. But my bad habits are stopping me to really become a good muslim.. of course we all do bad deeds and sin, but doing constantlty something sinful is really gonna push u down. And how to repent when u r gonna do it again? No. I have to quit bad habits really, I have prayed for that to happen and Im trying my best, as my part of course too. In sha Allah.
Becose what we have now, is never gonna last. Whatever it is, we can lose it in a second. Our health is the most greatest gift we have, alhamdulillah, and we need to work for it, or else we will bitterly remember it when we come ill..
.. and even if we take care of ourselves, and our loved ones, something can still happen. One day we lose them all, one by one. Sounds crushing doesnt it? I cannot even think about it really.. So what we have right now, we need to be humble. Inna lillaahi wa inna ilaihi rajioon - we will all go back to our Maker.
There is a saying, "live like its your last day", and people use it as an excuse for party harder, drink more, forget future.. - again, no. Its true, this can be our last day - so use it wisely. Go visit your parents, give flowers to your friend, hold hands with your spouse, give children a treat. Do some dhikr every day, make duaa always.. be close to those who matter to u, and reach for those u dont know. <3
