Day 16 – Something I always feel ‘what if’ about.

There will always be a question in my mind. No matter how happy I am. Or sad. Or mad. How high up in my life I am, or low. How loved I feel or disliked. And this question will continue to have a power over me, unless I channel it into something positive. large (1)

Why do I let myself think this way ? Why am I always chasing alternative realities, when I should just be focusing on the one I live in ? Why do I let this question stop me from taking life by the horns ? Why can’t I bring myself to just do what I want, without having to think of the worst possible outcomes ?

Maybe I can switch thoughts ? Essentially change who I am as a person ? And then finally stop being a barrier to my own happiness and success ? Is that possible ? Is there a pill I can take to stop doubting myself ? Maybe a class I can take ? Maybe a lecture I can attend ? Or maybe I can just be smart and condition myself to ask better questions ?



Maybe if I switched my words, I could actually use it to my advantage. Maybe if I follow it up with the right ideas, I’d actually be able to make a difference, to my life as well as others’. Maybe if I thought along the right lines, I’d be able to open myself to a world full of opportunities. A world full of love and possibilities. A world full of hope and happiness. A world. As glorious as can be. As wonderful as I deserve. So maybe I won’t stop asking myself…large (1)


One thought on “Day 16 – Something I always feel ‘what if’ about.

  1. The Indian Revert Muslimah says:

    It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:

    “The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, although both are good. Strive for that which will benefit you, seek the help of Allah, and do not feel helpless. If anything befalls you, do not say, “if only I had done such and such” rather say “Qaddara Allahu wa ma sha’a fa’ala (Allah has decreed and whatever he wills, He does).” For (saying) ‘If’ opens (the door) to the deeds of Satan.’”

    Grade: Sahih (Darussalam)
