Be grateful and I shall increase you ( Quran 14:7)

This is a promise made by Allah to mankind. SubhanAllah ❀️😍

I have always been grateful but there came a period in my life where it seemed like I had failed in life.😒😭

I was comparing my life to that of friends and family, the people who I grew up with.

I have never begrudge anyone of what they have , God is my witness but there is this thing of comparing yourself to others and you feel like a failure.πŸ’”

I was looking at things from a materialistic point, mostly.

What’s funny; I had cars , a home and stuff but yet it felt like I was behind everyone.πŸ™†πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

What you focus on grows. So I focused on what I didn’t have.😒☹️

I was SO miserable ,then I nearly died and this woke me up.

I was in ICU for nearly 3 weeks and everyone who came in after me , died during that period except me.

I asked God , β€œwhy me?! β€œπŸ€”

How come I was alive yet so many had died?!

I then chose to become grateful.

More grateful than I had ever been.

I have practiced gratitude daily for the last 9 years.( set out to deliberately be more thankful)

I have been grateful each BONUS single day that I live, and anyone who knows me, will tell you that I have a wierd way of responding to a greeting.

β€œ I am alive β€œ πŸ™β€οΈπŸ˜Š is usually my response to how are you?!

Or Alhamdulillah, ❀️( praise and thanks go to Allah) which is my default response.πŸ™

I get a chance every single day to start over.✌🏿 It doesn’t matter if I am having a migraine non stop for a week or any other pain, it doesn’t matter if I am in hospital or whether I have money in my bag or not. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Even if I got the worst possible kind of news.

I say, Alhamdulillah!!πŸ™πŸ™

What you focus on grows!!

I chose to focus on those infinite gifts and blessings Allah has given me. πŸ™

I chose to smile at the sky when it turns different shades .( sunsets 😍)

I love it when strangers smile at me, especially the children. πŸ’—

I love eating my food πŸ™ˆ ( don’t judge) and I concentrate on the different flavors as I chew.πŸ˜‹

I love what I see in the mirror! πŸ’žπŸ’ƒ

Gratitude has brought amazing people into my life, it has opened up spaces , opportunities and possibilities I could only ever imagine.πŸ™β€οΈπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜

Tabarak Allah!!❀️

I am a very happy woman and tell you what, the migraines are far in between.

The hospital visits are super rare which is a first for me.

Which favors of my Lord will I deny?!


Alhamdulillah thumma Alhamdulillah! πŸ™πŸ™
