Special Moment

Nowadays the common issue in our society is depression, being too much fed up of a situation or being unhappy. We assume that our situation will never improve and that the happy sun will never rise. We have to pass the painful time of waiting, not even sure what to expect and in the end we simply give up, we  give up on our hopes, dreams, joys and all the immense opportunities that life has to offers. And then often at times when we least expect it, just like Cinderella’s story in which at the last moment the shoe fits her foot and the story gets a happy ending, thing changes for good and everyone get a happy ending to their situation.

“The world is full of hopeful analogies and handsome, dubious eggs called possibilities”

(George Elliot)

The sun rises and brings with it so many opportunities, if only one could realize and see it. Each and every day has that special moment in it to change the way we think or feel.  Often we don’t realize it, but it may hit us in an instant in which we do our daily chores or it may land in the darkness and quietness of night. But that moment does come, but is felt seldom. That moment has the power in it to change everything around us. For some it comes with new dreams and for others with possibilities on how to achieve them.

But most of us rarely put attention in our everyday life. We have become so  much engage in our daily routine thinking that what we are doing is going to bring a change and not realizing that in fact  our routine has been molded into some sort of a shape and has become something like that of a ritual. We hardly do anything  different.  Each and every day we just miss our moments, our special moments, thinking that it hasn’t arrived today assuming that it might never come and that today is just like yesterday just as yesterday was like that of the day before yesterday.

We do realize that we are in depression but do we really even for a second think about it that why we really are in depression?? Is it even worth it?? What do we really do if we want to achieve something, when we don’t even dream on how to plan it out? We stay unhappy for a single reason that’s bothering us and in that we miss the million things that can make us happy in an instant.

If we could just grab that special moment. These special moments have the power not only to transform dreams into realities but also to make one happy. These special moment is just “ time” , time to sit and ponder and realize that no one can really make us happy or unhappy, no one can really crush our dreams, that it’s up to us, we are in charge of channeling our thoughts.

To see that if Allah can make the sun rise from east, He can also make things better and then leaving everything on Him to patiently and waiting patiently to witness as the magic happens. To have faith that whatever happens, happens for a reason and one day that reason will be apparent and clear and will make perfect sense.

“Pray for what you want, but work for the things you need.”

(Sufi Proverb)

Yes life is going to be difficult, we are going to suffer, but one should always be as much hopeful as that of a person who hears the sound of a train on the platform of a deserted area. Without sufferings hope will never have its full glory, without sadness, no one will ever appreciate happiness and without bad times no one will ever realize importance of good times. If you are going through a tough time be sure that good time is in store for you waiting for you around the corner all you have to do is to look for those special moments in your life that has the power in it to change everything in a blink of an eye and one day you will look back at your life with pride and will say to your self proudly that you did it!!

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.  ”
