With eyes that sees the Beauty
And steps that touches the Dream ..
I say Bismi'Allah.
O'Allah, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can change, and the wisdom to know the difference.
This Marc Aurele prayer got me thinking into many things, and I've been praying it everyday.
I found it very deep, logic and it just gathers everything I may ask Allah now, knowing where I stand in my life.
It gave me enough courage to accept some choices that are no more available, to accept all the bad things that happen in the past, to accept some current events that I can't change, some circumstances...
It gave me also enough strength to stand up (or get up first) and face all what I've to face right now, to do what I've to do, to take control of my life, to get my self busy doing what I like to do most, changing some bad habits, getting some good ones and so on.
Seeing the difference between what I can change and what I cannot is still a bit difficult but am working on it.
This power of acceptance gives the person such a huge relief and serenity. Since I started praying it, knowing deeply that Allah won't let me down and try my best to trust him and trust his plans. The first huge step was when I stopped asking my self the question "why this happened to me?"
When I stopped asking this stupid question, and got the idea that I gotta move on and I can't stop my life over something that became a past and eventually is not even a big deal, leaving school! so what it might be the most amazing thing that will ever happen to me, I mean who knows ! Really, I felt such an inter peace with my self, with the past, the present, and constructed a better clear image of what my future will probably look like.
As DeVon Franklin said on Super Soul Sunday last week, what important to do in conflicts during our lives is how we prepare for them before they happen, and how we react to them, cuz we don't control their happening, we might see it coming, sometimes we can stop it, sometimes they're just Allah plans for us, and who knows better than him what's good for us?
I trust Allah with my life, he gave me such a beautiful soul that am carrying in me, and surely planed for me an exiting life where I'll invest this soul. No worries anymore. I just feel like am armed, and nothing can break me, Allah's with me !
Keep planing to be surprised with what Allah is planing for you :)
Allah .. Thank you for accepting my prayers.
Peace be upon you all.
