LESSON OF THE DAY 827
We punished each one for his sins. Among them were those against whom We sent a storm, and among them were those whom the blast overcame, and among them were those whom We made the earth swallow, and among them were those whom We drowned. Yet God was not trying to oppress them; rather, they had wronged their own selves. [29: 40]
Hadith of the Day:
There is nothing a servant may swallow that is considered as praiseworthy as the swallowing of anger. [Ibn Maja]
Wise Quote of the Day:
A people who have left the struggle in Allah's way have shackled themselves in the dark caverns of disgrace and utter loss. [Abu Bakr radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Life is either daring adventure or nothing at all. Your life has the potential to be a wondrous journey, filled with exciting moments and astonishing experiences. Adventure is the result of your willingness to live life with a spirit of enthusiasm. It takes you beyond your comfort level. They expand your horizons and take you into new and exciting worlds. When you experience the aliveness of experimenting with new options and taking risks, you learn the value of adventure in your life.
Since what you make of your life is up to you, you can either create a life filled with miraculous adventures or stay huddled and safe, never experiencing the joyful rush of journeying outside your world with boldness. A life devoid of adventure may be secure, but it is one that lacks texture and color. If you never ventured forth, you can never expand and grow. Think about the adventures you have had in your lifetime. Those moments in which you took a leap of faith and expanded beyond your comfort zone are precious gifts, as they can remind you of the joy that is available to you when you embrace life with exuberance. These moments can be turning points in your personal history and inspire you to create new realities for yourself whenever you choose.
Imagine yourself at ninety years old, looking back on your life. What do you want to see? You only regret that which you don't do. Do you want to look back at a life filled with regrets or a life filled with magical moments inspired by adventure? [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face--------you must do the thing you cannot do. It takes courage. When you believe you can-------you can!
