A certain saintly man used to always perform his salaah with the congregation in the mosque. One day as usual he went to the mosque for salaah. As he reached the door of the mosque, he heard the voice of the Imam saying: “Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah” indicating that the congregational salaah had ended. Realizing that he had missed the congregational salaah, the pious man was filled with so much sorrow that he sighed: “Ah!” Such a sigh came right from the depths of his heart. “The saintly man missed the congregation and ‘Ah!’ was uttered in sorrow and in his ‘Ah’ the blood of his heart could be smelt”.

_*Beautiful letter written by a father to his son and daughter*_👌
*Make sure your children read it too.*
Following is a letter to his daughter from a renowned Hong Kong TV Broadcaster and Child Psychologist.
The words are actually applicable to all of us, young or old, children or parents.!
This applies to all sons & daughters too.
All parents can use this in their teachings to their children.
_I am writing this to you because of 3 reasons…_
_1. Life, fortune and mishaps are unpredictable, nobody knows how long he lives._
_2. I am your father, and if I don’t tell you these, no one else will._
_3. Whatever written is my own personal bitter experiences that perhaps could save you a lot of unnecessary heartaches._
_*Remember the following as you go through life.*_
_1. Do not bear grudge towards those who are not good to you. No one has the responsibility of treating you well, except your mother and I._
_To those who are good to you, you have to treasure it and be thankful, and ALSO you have to be cautious, because, everyone has a motive for every move. When a person is good to you, it does not mean he really will be good to you. You have to be careful, don’t hastily regard him as a real friend._
_2. No one is indispensable, nothing is in the world that you must possess._
_Once you understand this idea, it would be easier for you to go through life when people around you don’t want you anymore, or when you lose what you wanted the most._
_3. Life is short._
_When you waste your life today, tomorrow you would find that life is leaving you. The earlier you treasure your life, the better you enjoy life._
_4. Love is nothing but a transient feeling, and this feeling would fade with time and with one’s mood. If your so called loved one leaves you, be patient, time will wash away your aches and sadness._
_Don’t over exaggerate the beauty and sweetness of love, and don’t over exaggerate the sadness of falling out of love._
_5. A lot of successful people did not receive a good education, that does not mean that you can be successful by not studying hard! Whatever knowledge you gain is your weapon in life._
_One can go from rags to riches, but one has to start from some rags !_
_6. I do not expect you to financially support me when I am old, neither would I financially support your whole life. My responsibility as a supporter ends when you are grown up. After that, you decide whether you want to travel in a public transport or in your limousine, whether rich or poor._
_7. You honour your words, but don’t expect others to be so. You can be good to people, but don’t expect people to be good to you. If you don’t understand this, you would end up with unnecessary troubles._
_8. I have bought lotteries for umpteen years , but could never strike any prize. That shows if you want to be rich, you have to work hard! There is no free lunch !_
_9. No matter how much time I have with you, let’s treasure the time we have together. We do not know if we would meet again in our next life._

In order for me to have a good day, I need to start off my day with a little gratitude and some excitement. When I wake up I always say 5 things i’m grateful for. And of course i’m always excited to have my cup of coffee and sit on my front porch with the fresh early morning breeze. I do and think in a positive way, reason being is if I start my day well the rest of my day will turn out to be good. It’s what we think and how we go about our day.
I can wake up in the morning stub my toe and sip my coffee That would put me in a bad mood. Guess what, we will continue to be in a bad mood and our whole day will be full of problems and negativity. The way we perceive is the way we will attract.
We can easily change the bad mood into a good mood. Don’t get me wrong my mornings aren’t always happy and chippy. If I am in a bad mood, I will tell myself the rest of the day will be good. What we think is what we will attract.
Remember we can always have a good day !
