Goals and Resolutions

Personally, I have A LOT of goals this year and blogging is one of them. So yeah, blogging checked. There’s many more to go actually and I am not gonna rush myself. Taking it easy~

Talking about goals, I prefer to call them resolutions. Goals remain just as goals even after one is able to achieve them. In other words, if you’re done achieving your goals, that’s it. The end. On the other hand, resolutions are long-lasting and continuous. Resolutions are like your perpetual commitments to life and you carry them with you forever in your life.

Last month, I’ve finished reading The Happiness Project and I am glad I bought that book. Overall, the vital message that the author is trying to convey is about self-control. She was able to gain full control over herself throughout that project; which leads to her life progressing better each day. I love her writing because her writing is real. She didn’t sugarcoat her words or play the optimistic character all the time. She had her tough times and sometimes, she got angry and annoyed at others; which is a normal thing we all feel everyday. Perhaps in 2016, I’ll come up with my Happiness Project 😉 Ye shall wait next year, insyaaAllah =)

Hadith for today:

Refraining from Asking: Malik related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab from Ata ibn Yazid al-Laythi from Abu Said al-Khudri that some people of the Ansar asked the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and he gave to them. Then they asked him again, and he gave to them until he used up what he had. Then he said, “What wealth I have, I will not hoard from you. Whoever has forbearance, Allah will help him. Whoever tries to be independent, Allah will enrich him. Whoever tries to be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is given a better or vaster gift than patience.”
Al-Muwatta – Hadith 58.2.7
