From the heart

Our Limited Thoughts…

We act like we know it all. We pretend to be wearing glasses that show us the whole picture. We go about judging people like we have known their every struggle. We taunt people for their failures as if they did that on purpose. We envy happy, successful people but we haven’t seen them cry during their hardships.

What we see is not always what it is like. There is more to every scenario, to every incident, to every story, than we know. We fail to realize that our limited thoughts only makes us capable enough to see the smaller picture. Our limited thoughts doesn’t allow us to seek the behind the story situation. So let us not judge others, let us give others the benefit of doubt.

When it comes to our lives, our limited thoughts depress us. Since we can’t see the bigger picture, we lose all hopes. We forget who controls our life. We forget the mercy of our Creator. We think that this is it, that there is no way out. We stop living while infinite blessing awaits us. We forget that every struggle is a trial that will fetch us a reward in this world and the Hereafter.

So let us be mindful of our limited thoughts. Let us accept that we will never have complete knowledge of everything. Let us believe in the wisdom of our Creator.

This is How I Made My Feel Good Journal

A few months back I wrote a blog post, Don’t Fill Your Diary With Negative Memories which had reached a lot of views. Today I am writing this blog post on how I made my Feel Good Journal at a time when things were a bit a difficult at my end. The Feel Good Journal really helped me cope with my problems in a positive manner and since now that Allah has solved my problem I wish to share about it with my readers.

Objective of my Feel Good Journal

The reason I made this Feel Good Journal was because I wanted to create something that will keep me grateful during the darkest days of my life. When I was going through the difficult situation I ended up talking all negative and becoming ungrateful for whatever I already had. Just so you know I hate been ungrateful and I am actually afraid whenever I utter ungrateful words. So in order to stop myself and make myself look towards the brighter aspects of my life I created this Feel Good Journal.

Materials Needed:

  • A pretty notebook that says, ‘Pick me up!’ whenever you look at it.
  • Some cute stickers (optional).
  • Different coloured pens.
  • Few positive quotes.

The how?

I already have a diary where I jot down my good and bad memories. Well, not exactly bad memories but rather I write in it about my problems and that helps me see the picture more clearly. So what I did was go through the start of this diary and selected all the good memories to be compiled in my Feel Good Journal. I used different coloured pens for different memories depending on the type of memory, relationship, ambition, or a fun day out.

For people who don’t use a diary

If you don’t have a diary where you reflect your day to day activities then you can instead go through your smart phone gallery. Using a picture from each event of your life write at least one good memory.

This Feel Good Journal will help you during times when you will feel sad and depressed. It will keep you focused on the blessings that Allah has already blessed you with. Along with that, reading through your Feel Good Journal will divert your attention towards positive matters and will help you optimistically approach the problem.
