~ The Past ~

-  The future is stardust because you can dream it. The present is clay because you can mold it. But the past is stone because you can never change it.

A lot of people go through life like they are rowing a boat. They look at where they have been (the PAST) rather than where they are going (the FUTURE)

-    I'm not judging you by your past ... it just a reminder to you not to repeat it again.

-    We should not be scared of our past .. it should be a great lesson to move forward

-  When the fire is gone, the heat remains in the ashes. When the love is gone, the pain remains in the heart.

-   To know yourself is to know your past…

    To see yourself is to see your present…

    To be yourself is to be your future.

-   Don’t let your heart be burdened by your past, just keep the happy memories and throw the rest away.

-   The dimmer the pains of your past, the brighter the relief of your future.

-   The past is there to look back at our mistakes, future is there to make sure you don’t make the same ones.

-    The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.

~ Your Life Is Your Own ~

 Your life is a result of the choices you make

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours, it is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.

Nobody is more responsible for where you are now than you. You have the power inside of you to become the success that you want to be! Start becoming detailed and clear about the things that you really want out of life.

What is holding you back? Is it failure? Some of the biggest and most successful people in the world are driven by their failures from their pasts. Don't think of failure as an obstacle to your life, but instead think of failure as one of your biggest allies, for without failure, there is no success.

Condition yourself for success. Find people who have done things similar to what you want to do, and model your own life after theirs. All of the knowledge and wisdom is out there for you to use, but you have to use it to become successful by actually putting forth great effort, and taking action.

Life is strange, sometimes very dark, and very uncertain. Some think of life as passion, and some think of life as what a man is willing to give his or her thoughts to. Some call life a continual cycle of new surprises, while some say that life is one thing after another, as it were only a series of events.

One thing that we may all conclude about life is that it is definitely what you make it. You will always have a choice in life, and from these choices you will have laid out the path you traveled, whether it is one that you had to beat down and create for yourself, or whether it is a road that you traveled along with everyone else who wasn't really too much interested in making their life their own.

Make out of life whatever it is that you desire to make out of it, just be sure to make something.

We are all guilty of making some bad decisions in our lives. No one is perfect, and no one is all knowing besides the Almighty God. It is important not to focus on the decisions we made in the past that we now know have faults, but instead it is most important that we try to learn from what we have been through so that we make better decisions as each day goes forward.

If we also learn why we made the bad decisions we made then we will be even more likely to not make the same types of decisions again. Was it because you were attempting to avoid some type of pain or fear? What were you feeling in this moment of weakness, and how can you move forward in your life without making the same type of decision or better yet, how can you make it so that you move forward without even putting yourself in the same type of position again?

~ Never Hold Back How You Feel ~


" If you hold back how you feel because you're afraid of getting hurt, you end up hurt anyway......"

Never hold back how you feel about someone or about a certain situation, especially if you know once the opportunity to make something with someone is ever taken from you because someone else beat you to the punch will ultimately hurt you anyway.

As we live our lives we have to come to terms with the fact that if we want to live the best life possible for ourselves, we have to be willing to take the risks necessary to do so. Instead of holding back from expressing your emotional connect with a person, take the opportunity to do so, for no matter what is the consequence, if you hold back how you feel because you are afraid, chances are you would end up being hurt anyway.

Make it a lifestyle to be honest with others about who you are, and how you feel, only then will you achieve the ultimate satisfaction of living life with no regret.

To say stop being afraid is easy to do, but to actually start living, and to start taking action to get to where we really want to be is the most difficult thing in our lives that we have to do.

We feel every feeling for a reason. Until we can learn how to manage our actions because of the way we feel, instead of letting how we feel lead us not to act at all, we will more than likely never stop being afraid.

Today is the day that you can pump some action into your life. Decide what it is that you really want, and start taking active steps in pursuing what it is that you truly want out of life.

Change your thinking, and think like a person who is always plotting their next action, and act like a person who is always thinking, not fearing life, but thinking and pursuing.

Grab life by the horns in every second possible, and always remember that change is necessary in every facet in life in different moments. Stop letting fear ruin you, adapt, and grow until you can no longer, live on!

~ Do Not Chase People ~


"  Do not chase people. Be you, do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay............"

 Chasing people around in life will be of no benefit to you in the long run. This is mostly because you can't make people be who you want them to be, people will always do what they truly want to do, deep down inside. What you can do is make extraordinary effort each day to be you, and to do what is in your heart, and work hard at it.

The people who deserve to be in your life will come in your life, and not only will they just be a part of your life like the people of your past, but they will stay in your life as well. Cut the slack out of your life, and let go of the people that are only bringing you down. There is no reason to be burdened continually by people who don't believe in you, when there are people out there that will.

Some people are destined to be in your life for its entirety, some people are only meant to be in your lifetime for a season, and some are not supposed to be in your life at all. In our everyday lives it is most important to give us the best chance possible by being willing to run our race. You have to be who you really are, and work hard at the things that we know in our hearts are meant for us to accomplish.

Use your faith and be confident in the fact that your success is coming. Be faithful that you will not only have friends, but that you will also have friends that are truly the right people for your life.

Let go of any parts of your past that do nothing but bring you down and take you away from walking your walk, including people who offer no substance to the determined life you seek to take part in. 

You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved.

~ Respect People's Feelings ~


" Respect people's feelings. Even if it doesn't mean anything to you, it could mean everything to them.....''

Treating people with respect makes your world a nicer place to live in, whether it's at home, at school, or out in your community. And it's easy - all you have to do is treat people the way you like to have them treat you. We live in a diverse nation made up of many different cultures, languages, races, and backgrounds. That kind of variety can make all our lives a lot more fun and interesting, but only if we get along with each other. And to do that we have to respect each other.

Learning how to respect everyone is one of the most vital of lessons that we can all learn. Think before you say something, some people just need people to listen and understand where they are coming from before they are preached at.

Be there when someone need you to be. Even when people make a situation seem unimportant, when a person asks you to be somewhere, they are asking you to be there because they truly want you there.

Just honor people in the same way that you want to feel honored. Though everyone has different standards and beliefs,
we should often put ourselves in the shoes of others in situations so that we can best try to gather the ways that they may be feeling possibly.

Just because something doesn't mean that much to you, or just because it will have little to no impact on your life, doesn't mean that the same mutual feelings will be shared by everyone else you encounter.

~ Don't Play With People's Hearts ~

 Relationship Quotes

" Don't make a person fall for you if you have no intentions of catching them....."

 Why purposely hurt someone? Never make someone feel as though you are attempting to make more out of a relationship than you really are. Honesty is always the best policy. If you know that you aren't looking for much in a relationship and that you are only desiring to see what may come in the long run, be sure to tell the other person in the relationship this. If you see a person is falling faster than you may be comfortable with, be honest with yourself, and be honest with them, and let them off easy before even more feelings are invested into the relationship.

Sometimes we just are not ready for much, and we just want to test the waters, and there is nothing wrong with this. But be careful not to hurt anyone, and to be honest in your approach with them, if you have no intentions of reciprocating the same feelings they may have for you.

 People do lie, and cheat, and stab you in the back. There will be people who use you, and don't love you even though they say they do. But you can't let that stop you from living. Because there are people out there who do love you, and would never hurt you. You have to find those people and keep them in your life forever.

 Some people will do you wrong in life. People will say things about you that you never think they will, people will lie on you, people will cheat you, and people will purposely hurt you to try and make their selves feel better. There will be people in your life that you thought would be with you until the end, but they will fall out of your life. There will be people in your life that say they love you, until it is convenient for them not to love you anymore.

Never let bad people stop you from living life! For all the friends that leave your side and betray you, there will be those who will be there for you no matter what, and that do really love you! Though at times they may disappoint you because we are all human, you will know that they have the best of intentions. Find those people, and work hard to keep those people in your life forever!


~ Our Ways Are Not Always God's Ways ~

 Love for the sake of Allah never dies

Just because we desire something out of life, and just because we have a dream set up for ourself, doesn't mean that God wants that for us. Our ways are not always God's ways and this sets up perfectly to live a life on earth in which we learn how to trust, and how to love from a being that we can't even see with the naked eye.

Just as we feel that we should only believe in what makes sense to us, God tells us not to believe in anything unless it is from him! Just as we feel we should condemn others for being wrong, and not give love to people who hate us, God tells us to love everyone from our neighbors, to those who have committed the worst atrocities imaginable against us. Just as we expect to accumulate what we need by saving what we have, God tells us when you are in need, to give out what you need so that in return you will see a great harvest.

As you go through life just try to remember that this isn't our world, it's Gods, and our ways are not always Gods ways!

Never Allow Yourself To Become An Option ......


When we wait, and continue to wait for someone to decide if we are what they need, we not only limit our lives, but we also say to ourselves that we aren't important enough to be treated as special as we deserve to be.

Sure relationships have their rocky times, and sometimes we may all need a little break to be able to become stronger together, but we should never give someone the opportunity to make us an option that they can come back to whenever they please. We have to have enough confidence and respect for ourselves to know that our life should never be centered around another person. If a person truly loves us for who we are, they would never leave us hanging out to dry so long that we have no clue of when or if they will ever come back. 

Be yourself, and do the things that make you happy, when you do along the way you will find someone willing to be happy with you, instead of someone who feels like they can put you down, and pick you back up whenever you please.

Everyone has their breaking point. It is very easy to take a person for granted for so long when they continue to love you despite your ways, but don't get it confused, though some people's skin is thicker than others, everyone has a point in their life where they will get tired of being mistreated.

Instead of taking people for granted that love you, show them how much you appreciate them . This can be done by simply honoring them and doing small things to make them happy. This may also be done by just expressing your love to them in different and creative ways. Show how highly you value their love, and their presence in your life by going out of your way to do so. We are all given chances, but you never know when the last chance may be. Show your love, dont take them for granted!

~ Struggle ~


No doubt, life is difficult for many of us, but very often we make it even more difficult for ourselves. When we do not understand the real nature and character of life we make our own difficulties. In every man's life five percent of his difficulties are brought about by the conditions of life, and ninety-five percent are difficulties caused by himself.

Now you will ask: When the difficulties come from ourselves, where do they come from? We do not like struggle in life, we do not like strife, we only want harmony, we only want peace. It must be understood, however, that before making peace, war is necessary, and that war must be made with our self. Our worst enemy is our self: our faults, our weaknesses, our limitations. And our mind is such a traitor! What does it? It covers our faults even from our own eyes, and points out to us the reason for all our difficulties: others! So it constantly deludes us keeping us unaware of the real enemy, and pushes us towards those others to fight them, showing them to us as our enemies.

Besides this, we must tune ourselves to God. As high we rise, so high becomes our point of view, and as high our point of view so wide becomes the horizon of our sight. When a person evolves higher and higher his point of view becomes wider and wider, and so in all he does he strikes the divine note, the note which is healing and comforting and peace-giving to all souls.
