Live In The Present for True Fulfillment

“Behold! Verily no fear shall be upon the friends of Allah, nor shall they grieve;”

Quran 10:62

Peace be upon you, beautiful, ethereal human being, full of heavenly light!

Here I am, following through on my promise. I hope you are having a breathtaking Monday, soaking in the beauty of all that is, while intermingling gratitude into every thread of your existence.

So much of our lives are spent living out the script of two specific emotions:

Fear or grief.

We fear the future, with all of its uncertainty.

We grieve over the past, donning the heavy cloak of regret.

And what do we forget to do?

We forget to truly live. We forget…the present.

You know, as crazy as it sounds, the word present is a double entendre – a fancy way of saying it has a double meaning.

The present moment is all we have. And yes, it is absolutely the most precious gift.

Pause here to imagine, for a moment.

In your youth, you made a thousand mistakes. You let your health slide, and you fed your body so much processed food it’s a miracle you’re still alive.

Now, every moment of your life is wrought with worry that these mistaken choices will catch up to you. It’s only going to be a matter of time before you get really sick, you sit and think to yourself.

Doesn’t it sound like a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Now, what about if we tried it again, like this?

In your youth, you made a thousand mistakes. You let your health slide, and you fed your body so much processed food it’s a miracle you’re still alive.

Today, you forgive yourself. Today, you take your power back. Today, you decide that you will get the help you need.

You firmly resolve that you will change your unhealthy habits no matter what.

It’s time to become who you really are.

It’s time to release the excess weight.

It’s time to stop playing victim to your past. To become the author of your own story.

A year passes by, then two…

You lose over 100 pounds! Even through excruciating pain, you’re pulled through by your True Self…with God’s Help. You quit the processed foods, and you reprogram your entire gut microbiome! Now, miracle of miracles! The girl who once piled her plate high with sugary sweets…now craves only healthy foods.

You become an inspiration to people around you. Soon, your story spreads and you’re speaking on stages across the world…you’ve written books on your story…you’re launching courses to enlighten others…sharing that if you could do it, they could do it, too.

And that’s how you make your own (hi)story.

By receiving the gift of the present moment. By living in the now.

“And certainly We created man of clay that gives forth sound, of black mud fashioned in shape.”

Quran 15:26

Us human beings? We’re made from clay…and we can literally.become.anything.

We have the power of free will, the power to choose…as a gift from The Most Generous Creator, Allah (Arabic name for God)!

You always have a choice to make. So, will you choose fear…or faith?

Fear of the future, or faith in your dream future…which you will make happen with the Help of Allah, no matter what.

After all, Allah Himself Has Promised that with belief, there is neither fear, nor grief.

What will you decide?

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” – Mother Teresa

“Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.” – Albert Camus

I hope this story hit home for you guys! I would love to hear your stories of overcoming fear and grief ❤

Thank You so much for listening to mine ❤

With a cooling breeze of peace,

From my heart to yours,

I am just your average twenty-something ordinary human girl, in continuous pursuit of a better-me, everyday. Researching, writing poetry and journaling have been hobbies of mine for as long as I can remember. So, I thought if I could help even one person with these reflections, why not share it on a blog?! #SocialMedia4Good And that's how these chit-chat sessions began, ladies and gentlemen...
