~ A Slice of Life ~

Life is too short . Most of us look to live past our seventies and perhaps well into our eighties and nineties. However, there are no guarantees in life. We must all learn to live life now while we can, because our lives can be gone in just a blink of an eye.

Life is less about finding answers than it is about seeking them.

An ideal life is not a steady, consistent progression. It involves 2 steps forward and anywhere from 1 to 3 steps back. It involves peaks and valleys. The peaks feed your soul and fuel your strength to endure the valleys. The valleys feed your heart and build your wisdom to appreciate the peaks.

Whatever ideal life I can envision with clarity will always remain elusive. The true ideal is one I cannot see. It will only be revealed to me in time, and it will only be revealed if I keep my eyes and my heart open enough to see it.

The only certainty in life is that it will be fraught with uncertainty.

Promises are not guarantees, and even guarantees can be voided by the uncertainties of life. Each promise that is fulfilled should be recognized for the gift it truly is.

If I limit my expectations to the unexpected, I will never regret what never comes to be.

I thrive on stories and dreams, the greatest of which highlight compassion, understanding and brotherhood, and serve as reminders that love and faith really can conquer all.

Life really is a walk in the least, that's where the filter is, the one that sorts fiction from truth and helps me to see who's really behind the curtain.

Love is not a guarantees towards happiness. Love comes and goes unexpectedly. It will fade due to certain circumstances. Don't place high hope on love. It will leave you broken hearted.

Our kids were an asset. Take good care of them. They are truly a gift from Allah, love them and Insyallah they will love you back.

A bad marriages gave a great impact on life. The experiences make you more careful in making decision and make you more wiser in every steps that we make.

Many of us go through life thinking that tomorrow is just another day. We think that we can always see family and friends another time. We put off things until tomorrow. Perhaps we all need to celebrate life now and cherish the good times while we can.

Time waits for no one and you can’t put time in the bank. Perhaps we need to get out and “Live. Love, Laugh” a little more and get on with life. The slice of life may be big or small but we need to “Live to our full potential and not waste it."
