  • tehreem khalid NO PRESSURE, NO DIAMOND… Life is a beautiful gift but it’s not easy. Life has its own problems that we have to face. However, facing them is also not easy, it is a huge challenge to stay put and face them with all the courage and bravery. The only thing that gives us courage and bravery to fight and face these challenges and darkness that life sometimes put us through is the fact that life is beautiful as well. We have a faith that life will bring us good times as well. This gives hope. Every defeat and victory, sorrows and happiness, thick and thins and day and night are like one the two pages of leaf. Moments of accomplishment, delight, triumph and relief never come alone. All of these moments come hand in hand with by problems, despair, conquest, disappointments, depression, failures. Life is full of these moments, these moments are the combinations that make life and every human being who is alive, have to go through has suffering, failure and struggle along with ease, relief and success. This fact should also be put under consideration that life is beautiful as well and it provides us little moments and little things to celebrate. Above all, it gives us and a tinge of celebration that we are alive, that we wake up and see a shining sky and a happy sun in the morning and we see our parents, friends and siblings around us… waking up alive is nothing less than a blessing itself. But, along with this, as discussed above, one must always be mentally prepared for all the miseries that would come with the gift of being alive. Provocations and misfortunes are a part of life too. But with these difficulties there comes success and understanding about life. They teach us about so many situations and fields of life. No individual can be successful if he never faced any difficulties in life. Difficulties are to test a person’s bravery, nerve, tolerance and his true personality and mentality. If one wants to face new contests that life makes him go through devotedly and courageously, then luck and hardships are the tool. These two things make a person strong and ready to face every hardship life puts him through. We all are familiar with a proverb, “no pain, no gain”, which my dear readers, is quite true. There are zero doubts about that, that if there is no pain, no suffering, no hardship; then there can be no gain, no success, no accomplishments and no achievements. The success is nurtured and constant only if one works hard and sweats it out. Being humans, moreover being a Muslim, we are blessed to have our Holy book Qura’an 5 times a day prayers. Qura’an and namaz have solution for everything, every problem we face in our lives. Reading Qura’an daily guides us and namaaz stops us from doing wrongs. These two blessings on us are a source of mental comfort, knowledge, a sensible way out of problems and another key to success other than hard work. If a person works hard n prays and remembers Allah for success and ease on its part to achievements, his chances of getting successful increase and there is nothing that can stop him from achieving his goals. So this is nothing less than a gift that we are Muslims and we have direct guidance and contact to Allah. Thus, we should not think and consider that life is a bed of roses; we ourselves witness that thorns are also a part of life and we cannot neglect this fact. It’s important to accept thorns the same way we accept happy and beautiful side of life because those who never accept the dark side of life, when they have to face any dark time, any misery or any difficulty, they can’t take it; their mind and heart are not strong enough to go through any hard time and hence, they break down and fail. The roses in life are for the purpose to make us and make us feel satisfied. Roses also refer to success, accomplishments and almost every good thing a person can possibly think of including fulfilment of his wishes. Thorns, on the other side, remind us that our happiness, success and accomplishments can slip out of our hands like sand, anytime in life, even in the times we least expected anything bad to happen. But still, in such situations, we must choose not to get disheartened, heartbroken and disappointed but instead of that, we should always remember that the pain we go through because of thorns is momentary, it is for a short period of life and the magnificence of life, the happy times, are for long term and the bright side of life would soon overcome the prick of thorns. Those who think that life is all about roses are living in a fool’s paradise and soon they become a victim of frustration and depression. Even a person who is seem to be the happiest ever or who is seem to be living life of his choice and life of our dreams, would also have to walk through a path of thrones sometimes in his life. Its important to be mentally prepared for whatever comes in your way, good things or bad, bright thing or dark, no matter what life makes you go through, never give up, stay put, be brave, stand firm in that storm of darkness and eventually you’ll see a bright morning ahead because life is beautiful and we accept this fact, we get hope and courage to face new challenges. Every dark thing that happens in our life helps us to grow. Don’t consider it as a set back. Don’t be so hard on yourself Take a moment Marvel at your life: at the grief that softens you, at the heartache that wisens you, at the suffering that strengthened you. Despite everything, you still grow. Be proud of it.
