“The life of the world is nothing but a game and a diversion. The abode of the hereafter—that is truly Life if they only knew.”
(Surat al-‘Ankabut: 64)
Sometimes we tend to forget that this life is temporary and full of tests. We get too sad when we didn’t get something that we’d wished for. We get too happy when we get what we want, forgetting that it can be taken away from us anytime.
“He Who created death and life to test which of you is best in action. He is the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving.”
(Surah Al-Mulk: 2)
Learn to tell yourself that this life is short and will soon end. It’s too precious to waste on regrets, bad thoughts, and the feeling of giving up. Look around and try to remind yourself that there are more to life than just what we imagined. Even at this moment, we’re being showered with endless blessings. Our eyesight, our well-functioning sensory organs, the air that we breathe in, the love we receive everyday and the list goes on!
Life is a journey that must be travelled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations.
– Oliver Goldsmith
Life is indeed a journey that’s full of surprise and the unknown. It makes us anxious, scared, excited and sometimes sad at the same time. We need to stop comparing our lives with others. Everyone has their own path that will be shaped by their own decisions and fate. Some people get their dream job, or even a job at the age of 23 while some at 27. Some people get married at 25 while some at 35. Some people died at a young age while some had a super long life and died at the age of 110. We need to understand that we all have a different life timeline so that we’ll see things in a better perspective. Find your purpose of life and priorities and focus on achieving it.

Enjoy the journey and try to get better every day. And don’t lose the passion and the love for what you do.
– Nadia Comaneci
Just keep trying and put as much effort as you can and leave the rest to God to decide. His decision is never faulty. Be happy and grateful with what we have and work harder to become the best version of ourselves. You got this! No matter how tough life gets, never lose hope! Remember, this temporary life is a journey towards the eternal afterlife. Make it a beautiful one!
