Appreciate the small things, they’re still gifts given to you.

Posted by ZAAHARA .COM on

 As a society, we tend to see the big things first. Our eyes look at the broad spectrum of things as opposed to seeing the small, but equally significant, things. Wether it be gestures or gifts, regardless of size, it is just an important.

Every single day, we get treated to small gifts. The only thing is that we do not appreciate it as much as we do if they were big and lavish gifts. Why is that? Why are we more prone to appreciating bigger things? Is bigger better? Not in every case.

Some of you may even be wondering, what small gifts do I receive every day? For starters : blessings. Every single day, we have the opportunities to gain deeds and blessings from Allah (s.w.t). These blessings extend from the ability to breath, getting a new job, getting to work safely, the health of our family and so many more. We tend to take these small things for granted when in actuality, we should not. If these things were taken away from us, we would respond negatively. Therefore, we should all make the effort to see beyond the negativity and enjoy the positive light in our lives.

Other small gifts could include your husband/wife cooking for you, your co-worker buying you coffee, a stranger opening the door for you. Small gifts come in all shapes and forms, we just need to be aware of them to actually start appreciating them. Allah (s.w.t) is fair, he is All-Knowing and his love for us is vast, beyond anything that we know. He will never allow us to steer far from His love and His compassion. And let us never be away from His kindness. A small act can change a lot. We may not be able to see the ripples of our actions, but trust that we do make a difference.

We need to be better at appreciating and focusing on the positive aspects of our lives. If we focus too much on the negativity, we may be consumed with hate, anger and depression. We should never intend to live our lives like that. Take time out of your day to be aware of your surroundings. Instead of looking at what you do not have or can not have, and look at what you already were given. Allah (s.w.t) has the best intentions for us and He knows what is best for us.

Therefore, instead of trying to control a situation, that is out of your hands, trust in Allah (s.w.t). Have patience for yourself and your future. In the meantime, appreciate all that you have. Some people would do anything to be where you are. It is all about perspective.

And we need to have more of it in our lives. We are all human and we are entitled to our feelings but never lose sight at what is important : your blessings of today. We are all loved by Allah (s.w.t) so trust Him, be humbled by His blessings and have patience with His plan for you.
