💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 On earth where most ladies tend to be competitive,

Where they compare themselves to others and get jealous,

Only one kind of contest matters to the righteous -

To win Allah’s Love and pass His tests with the pious.

~•~

We’re not here to flaunt who is the most educated,

Who got the most awards and the best certificates,

Who’s most skillful in art, fabulous at cosmetics,

And who’s famous, or whose love life is most romantic.

~•~

If you’re in the wrong race, it’s no big deal if you’ve lost,

If you don’t measure up to the materialistic,

Or you’re not counted as “classy”, “hot” or “rich” enough.

Allah, not His slaves, is the Only One to judge us.

~•~

The most noble of souls are those whom Allah guided,

Whom Allah blessed with knowledge, ethics, self-awareness,

Eagerness to improve and from vice they’re protected,

Discernment of the truth, applying faith and courage.

~•~

Some lessons to learn from Khadija bint Khuwaylid:

Tough wives care for their men, they can run their own business,

In a decent method, through guardians or assisted,

They can propose or make themselves ready for marriage.

~•~

From caliph Ali’s wife, Fatima bint Muhammad (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam),

We learn to be daughters who are brave and supportive,

Wives who are hardworking and gratefully contented,

Mothers who show wisdom in educating their kids.

~•~

From Maryam bint 'Imran - mother of Prophet Jesus,

We learn “Only Allah is the One to be trusted”,

With Tawakkal and firm faith/Imaan we can manage

And survive, even if we earn some people’s hatred.

~•~

From Aasiyah bint Muzahim, we are motivated

To patiently persevere and do well in each test,

To keep seeking help from Allah, when hurt or oppressed,

And always aim for Jannah where there’s eternal rest.

~•~

That’s our mission, sisters, to pass all of Allah’s tests,

With Sabr, Shukr, Taqwa, and ongoing progress

Towards Jannah while praying for Allah’s Forgiveness,

Grateful we did our best to join those who stayed pious.

~•~

I haven’t been able to understand this concept until recently.  You would think that I’d understand this greatly being that I fight a constant battle behind my bright smile.  People who possess diverse abilities are able to manage their lives and daily living in ways unimaginable to the naked eye.

However, because it’s so difficult to imagine to most who have been labeled able bodies. Instead, we are deprecated in judgment, looked down upon because we are a rare specimen that is merely understood.  If only they’d take the time to see the battle we fight and how each and every day is a blessing and a greater opportunity to strive for the unimaginable.

Although our world is small we have grown and expanded to higher ground in these recent years.  Our power comes from our soul, our dedication comes from the craving of succeeding beyond our limits. 

I learned so much from my diverse abilities community.  I will say I am very proud of my success and where my future is headed. I refuse to allow anyone to label or tell my story and depreciate the awesome woman that I am.  

It was told to my parents when I was born at 5 months weighing at 1 pound and a half that I wouldn’t make it past a week. I survived! 

After that, they were told I would never sit, or walk. I sit and I still can walk. 

My parents were told to I wouldn’t live past 21 years old I’m 36 years old now.

I was told many times that school wasn’t for me. I graduated with my Associates and as an honor student.

I was told many times by physicians I wouldn’t be able to bear children.  My son just graduated high school.

I love making people happy, inspiring them, and help make a difference in individuals who seek a helping hand. My line of work allows me to do this and it truly makes me happy.  Despite the battles or struggles I will always smile and continue to make myself worthy despite anyone’s judgment.

Through my years I continue to break the stigma and barriers to rise high above that worthless generic label giving to us due to ignorance.

I am thankful to all the superheroes who have helped me and inspire me to continue making history in this journey called life.  I humbly continue to grow and learn from these amazing diverse individuals with superpowers.

No one is able to determine the life you live, or the dreams you can achieve. Your life is yours to adjust and create your goals at your own time.  Never forget you possess hidden powers that you only develop by your will to thrive.

So much nice stuff has been happening to me lately omg I was so nervous about school because while my upcoming classes are super cool, one teacher was rumored to be a total asshole who belittled his students, but guess what! At the last minute he was replaced by the best teacher to give that class so now I’m just excited about this upcoming semester. Also having photography lab so I’m getting a brand new camera + voice recording equipment for my interview class.

kiingsroar said:  ’ h-huh ? ’ ears standing straight up as he heard those three little words slipping past the queen’s lips. his emerald eyes gazed back into purple as it begins to settle, and he can hear both his own and Vil’s heart beating like drums in their chests. Say it Leona, it was only 8 letters, and he knew deep down he knew Vil deserved to hear them 1000 times over. He leans in, lips taking vil’s before whispering ’ I love you too.’ So many emotions, and it felt a little scary but he meant it. .

   No.  He  did  not  just  say  that.  He  could  not  have  just  said  that.  He  was  meant  to  be  PERFECT  ,  someone  who  was  always  prepared  and  left  nothing  to  chance  or  fate.  Maybe  he  just  imagined  saying  those  words. Three  words  he’d  never  intended  to  actually  breath  life  into.  It  didn’t  matter  how  true  they  rang  in  his  chest.  Admitting  to  them  would  mean  being  vulnerable  ,  to  the  fact  that  an  icy  heart  had  thawed.

   But  then  Leona  reacts  and  he  can  feel  his  stomach  drop  at  the  realization  he  has  spoken.  Suddenly  he  wants  to  flee  ,  to  run  wherever  his  feet  might  carry  him.  Vil  DOESN’T  ,  because  such  behavior  is  not  proper  for  a  Queen.  Instead  ,  he  can  only  stare  with  wide  ,  wysteria  eyes  ,  helpless  to  whatever  the  other  might  do  or  say.

   (  Is  this  what  some  call  stage  fright  ?  He’s  never  felt  such  a  feeling  before  ,  but  now  he  wishes  that  he  might  hide  from  green  eyes.  )

   His  body  jolts  slightly  when  he  feels  the  kiss  to  his  lips  ,  but  he’s  not  sure  what  answer  that  is.  Even  as  his  lips  press  back  against  Leona’s  ,  Vil  doesn’t  know  what  that  means.  Is  it  returned  ?  Has  he  just  made  a  fool  of  himself  ?  His  sharp  tongue  has  been  his  own  undoing.  How  ironic.  His  greatest  betrayal  came  from  himself.

   Then  he  hears  words  he  never  expected  to  hear.  I  love  you  too.  His  heart  picks  up  speed  again  ,  and  he  focuses  on  Leona  entirely  to  access  the  truth  of  the  words. He  feels…warm.  The  soft  glow  of  something  in  his  chest  that  feels  like  it  might  scorch  him  as  it  thawed  away  the  chest  that  filled  his  chest.  Summer  had  reached  the  Queen’s  domain  for  the  first  time.

   Relief  escapes  in  the  form  of  a  sigh  and  a  smile  as  he  presses  their  foreheads  together.  A  softer  smile  ,  one  like  a  pleasant  spring  day  ,  blooms  on  his  lips  as  he  shifts  to  nuzzle  in  closer  to  the  lion.  Somehow  ,  despite  his  shock  and  fear  at  his  own  words  ,  now  his  chest  feels  lighter  with  the  confession  known.

   The  Queen  opts  not  to  say  anymore  ,  but  laces  their  hands  together  ,  slowly  relaxing  into  him.

Ezra Bayda, Beyond Happiness: The Zen Way to True Contentment
Whenever we seek special experiences to bring us happiness we are caught in striving, in the self-centred pursuit to feel a particular way. This is guaranteed to undermine any aspiration to realize our true nature, which is ultimately the source of the deeper equanimity of genuine happiness.
