8: Price tag

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a dollar twenty ($20) bill, in the room of two hundred (200) people. Speaker asked, "Who would like this dollar twenty ($20) bill?" Hands started going up.

Speaker said, "I am going to give this dollar twenty ($20) bill to one of you but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple up the dollar twenty ($20) bill. He asked, "Who still wants it?" Still hands were up in the air.

"Well, what if I do this?" He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty and asked, "Who still wants it?" Still hands went up into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what was done to the money, it was still wanted because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth dollar twenty ($20).

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We may feel as though we are worthless and useless.

But no matter what has happened or will happen, you will never lose your value: dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you.

7: What should I do?

One day a young lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, 
What should I do?"

He said "keep driving". 
Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was
Getting worse.

"What should I do."
The young lady asked?
"Keep driving," her father replied.

On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.
She told her dad, 
"I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. 
It is Terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"

Her father told her, 
"Don't give up, just keep driving!"

Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she
Could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on
Dry land, and the sun came out.

Her father said, 
"Now you can pull over and get out."

She said 
"But why now?"

He said 
"When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are
Still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through "HarD TimEs".

Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up. 
You don't have to…
If you keep going, soon your storm will be over 
The sun will shine upon your face again.Insya ALLAH.

6: Jarak

Suatu hari seorang guru bertanya kepada murid-muridnya, “Mengapa ketika seseorang sedang marah, dia akan bercakap dengan suara kuat atau berteriak?”
Seorang murid setelah berfikir cukup lama mengangkat tangan dan menjawab, “Kerana dia telah hilang sabar, oleh itu dia berteriak.”
“Tapi…” guru bertanya kembali “Orang yang dimarahinya hanya berada dekat dengannya. Mengapa perlu berteriak? Kenapa dia tak berbicara secara lembut?” Hampir semua murid memberikan pelbagai alasan yang dirasakan logik menurut mereka. Namun tiada satu pun jawapan yang memuaskan.
Maka guru berkata, “Ketika dua orang sedang berada dalam kemarahan, jarak antara ke dua hati mereka menjadi amat jauh walaupun secara luaran mereka begitu dekat. Oleh itu, untuk mencapai jarak yang demikian, mereka harus berteriak. Namun anehnya, semakin kuat mereka berteriak, semakin pula mereka menjadi marah dan dengan sendirinya jarak hati yang ada di antara mereka menjadi lebih jauh lagi. Kerana itu mereka terpaksa berteriak lebih kuat dan keras lagi.”
Guru masih melanjutkan, “Sebaliknya, apa yang terjadi ketika dua orang saling jatuh cinta? Mereka tidak berteriak, mereka berbicara dengan suara yang keluar dari mulut mereka dengan begitu perlahan dan kecil. Seperlahan bagaimana pun, kedua-duanya masih dapat mendengar dengan begitu jelas. Mengapa demikian?” Guru bertanya sambil memerhatikan muridnya.
Mereka kelihatan berfikir panjang namun tiada seorang pun yang berani memberikan jawapan. “Kerana hati mereka begitu dekat, hati mereka tak berjarak. Sepatah kata pun tak perlu diucapkan. Sebuah pandangan mata saja cukup membuat mereka memahami apa yang ingin mereka sampaikan.”
Ketika kita sedang dilanda kemarahan, janganlah hati kita mencipta jarak. Lebih – lebih lagi mengucapkan kata-kata yang mendatangkan jarak hati diantara kita. Mungkin di saat seperti itu, diam mungkin merupakan cara yang bijaksana. Kerana waktu akan membantu kita.

p/s: When a little thing angers you, it's an indication of how little patience you have.
Know that the reward for patience is greater than any little or big thing that may anger you (:

5: Do we realize?

How many reminders do we need to realize that the time keeps ticking on and on it’s passing by.
 Every time the leaves change their colours, 
every time the moon continues it’s cycle, 
every time it’s someone’s birthday, 
every time the sun rises again, it’s a sign of time passing, 
a sign of us getting another step closer to meeting our Lord. 

Indeed by time, mankind is in great loss.

p/s: We are the author of our own book of deeds that will be presented to us on the Day of Judgement. So, think about it, how's the "story" looking this far? :(

4: It is just a matter of time & appreciation :)

This is a beautiful message. May it give you peace and hope.

Once there was a man who asked ALLAH for a flower and a butterfly

But instead he got a cactus and a caterpillar

The man was sad, he didn’t understand why his request was mistaken

Then he thought: Oh well, ALLAH has too many people to care for...

And decided not to question.

After some time, the man went to check up on his request that he had left forgotten

to his surprise, from the thorny & ugly cactus a beautiful flower had grown.

And the unsightly caterpillar had been transformed into the most beautiful butterfly.
ALLAH always does things right!

His way is always the best way, even if it seems to go wrong.

If u asked ALLAH for one thing and received another,


You can be sure that He will always give you what u need at the appropriate time

What u want…

Is not always what you need..
So keep on going for Him without doubting or murmuring.

p/s: Today’s thorn is tomorrows flower
ALLAH gives the very best to those who leave the choices up to Him (:

3: Some called them "basol"


I can remember how interested we were to help our mother to peel the onions but none of us reached the goal. It looked easy yet it gave pain. Tears followed one another. Until recent past whether I cried for losses and wins…I was tearing off when peeling off the skin of onions and chopping them…but now, it’s just a simple task. No tears…no worries.

Problems are like onions too. A person faces the problem for the very first time it gives pains and tears. And once he is used for such problems he’ll learn to take them easy and will little worry about the pains he feels and will rarely cry. Instead he will try to get rid of them quickly as I peel off the skin of the onion. And facing such problems will gradually change it to a challenge as we chop the onions, very energetic and willing to do more :) and more than anything he will know that without problems, pains and tears, life is not interesting, same like the onions, once they are added to the curry it’ll look more pleasant and will become more delicious.

And…the more the problems you face the more you become confident and stronger… same like the onions, once they are taken into the body they react as an antibiotic :)

p/s: Face whatever the problems you have with a stronger heart, it will teach you the art of achieving your goal with less pains and tears.

2 : Sang Pemimpi :)

Dare to dream,
Because only by dreaming,
will you ever discover
who you are, what you want,
and what you can do.
Don’t be afraid to take risks,
to become involved,
to make commitment.
Do whatever it takes to make
your dreams come true.
Always believe in miracles,
and always believe in you!

p/s: Goodnite! Sweetdreams ^_^

“ At times when we are at our lowest, we need something to lift our spirits up.
I find that quotes, short stories and poems helps me lots through these process.
To remind me that to count every small blessings :)

"May it benefit to all, insya ALLAH :)"

With lots of love,
