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.
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.
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 , “why me?! “
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.
“ I am alive “ is usually my response to how are you?!
Or Alhamdulillah, ( praise and thanks go to Allah) which is my default response.
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. Even if I got the worst possible kind of news.I say, Alhamdulillah!!

I chose to focus on those infinite gifts and blessings Allah has given me.
I chose to smile at the sky when it turns different shades .( sunsets )
I love it when strangers smile at me, especially the children.
I love eating my food ( don’t judge) and I concentrate on the different flavors as I chew.
I love what I see in the mirror!
Gratitude has brought amazing people into my life, it has opened up spaces , opportunities and possibilities I could only ever imagine.
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!
