“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.”



At the end of the day,
after all the work is done;
At the end of the day,
as we watch the setting sun;

After all the trials,
and after all the pain;
After all the struggles,
to make it through the day;

I thank God for peace and rest,
and for little smiles from you;
I thank God for rising stars,
and for little hugs from you;

For there is no blessing,
such as this I found so true:
It’s such a pleasure just walking home
at the end of the day with you!


Breaks are important. After a long stressful month where you may have found yourself at the brink of a sort of “depression”, the best thing to do is to just wind it all down. Forget the yesterday, and don’t try to peak at the tomorrow. Take any tangled strings of thoughts, and scrape them out of your mind. Let everything be a blur at the back of your head, and don’t try to make sense of it, because in all honesty, you will probably drive yourself insane. Close all that needs to be closed: books, laptop, doors, blinds, and your eyes. Just breathe it all out, and live the moments you have in tranquility.

How do you spend your well deserved weekends/holidays?


Happy almost-the-end-of-the-week everybody!

Stay blessed. :)

  1. Assalaam Alaikum <3

    Aw, what a sweet poem! And great question! I usually spend my time doing things I love; whether it's reading a good book, enjoying some of my favorite meals, cooking with friends, taking a walk outside to admire Allah's creation, or just spending time with my loved ones. Alhumdulillah, for the blessings that we've been given.

    I hope you've been well! =)

  5. I find it hard to enjoy your breaks when you know that there is sooo much work waiting to be done with. However, you're right; breaks are important. Lovely post, manshallah.
