A watched pot,

(picture's source)

never boils.. That’s right.. And sadly, that’s what nearly each one of us does.. Watching our pots.. I mean, we could do something else, we could make ourselves of use, but NO.. All we do is sit & watch the pot & wait for it to boil.. Don’t tell me “there’s nothing else to do”; ‘cuz there’s ALWAYS something there for us to do.. Just take a second & look around you instead of watching the pot.. I’m sure it’ll hate you if you carry on starring at her (“pot” is a feminine, right?) that way.. I’ve talked earlier about the difference between patience & not having an option.. A huge difference there.. Don’t think that I am “miss patience” of the world.. I’m so not.. Look at me, I can’t wait to see Khuzama’s race today.. Just can’t wait.. There’s nothing I could do about that.. I could just write over here until I see her ;) No no, seriously now, we really gotta give a li’l more.. I don’t see us using our potentials.. You got potentials, you CAN DO IT!

Talking of potential, I have this unbelievable ability in using my sense of smell! I got in this room & smelled these really yummy flowers.. They were these small white flowers, star-like shaped, with the most beautiful olive colored petals ever! I can’t get them of my mind! I wish I could find out their names.. Who named them anyways?! Why don't I name them then? But I'll have to think about that.. And if I name them & later on ask for them, no florist will be able to know what I'm talking about :( Plants are so very extremely delicate.. They totally get along with nature & despise anything to do with our hands.. We put our hands in something & that’s the end of it.. Can’t we just calm down a li’l & give a space for our surroundings?

Yesterday, I got to listen to this amazing talk by Moez Masoud.. It consisted of two parts: 1
& 2.. (It was in arabic though, if you're interested in listening to his english talks, you could go here..) And after it was over, sis asked me if I love Allah more than my parents.. I was totally sure that I do (it's just that you can't compare the love of Allah to the love of His creatures..).. And it felt so good & real.. I loved that moment very much.. Thanks for asking sis :) And since we’re talking about you now, let me tell the others of your other question.. Well, my one & only sis was wondering what would we do if we had the ability to say all we want to everyone & it’ll all be forgotten in the very next day? I enjoyed thinking about it for a while.. I recommend you do too.. The good part about doing that, is that by answering this question sincerely, you’d be able to tell if your heart is a good healthy one or not :) Talking of healthy hearts, I did this very healthy thing & felt fabulous about it :D No showing offs here.. I just wanna share its sweet taste, that’s all.. Well, I was about to backbite & let something off my chest, but paused for a second & modestly didn’t.. The hard part here is that I truly NEEDED to let it off my chest.. But I didn’t! And it felt gooooooooood!!

One last message before I go:

To the pathetic thief,

Well, I just wanted to say that I feel so sorry for you & wish you had a different life!!

Salaam Alaikum Sara,

you're so right,we've got to use more of our potentials :)!
By the way,I'm proud of you for not backbiting.That's so cool!
I mean,I sometimes find myself backbiting,but I really try not to do it anymore.If you don't backbite you're free,because nothing can come back at you.

Till next time!
Kisses from the sunny Slovenia!

Alhamdulillah Sara for this, a rare clear moment of choice.. rarely does one watch himself making the right choice nowadays..
