Small Actions, Big Impact

Between the last 20 days since I last wrote, so many events have taken place. The biggest event being the tragedy of #MH17 being shot down and the attacks on Gaza by the cursed Zionist. Admittedly these events does not affect me personally but for some reason I’m emotionally drained reading the news feed. I feel so exhausted and terrified.

What kind of world would I be leaving my children/grandchildren in the next 10, 20, or 50 years. I’m too scared to even imagine. But I believe wholeheartedly that one person can make a difference, though maybe not huge differences to the entire world or even my kampung (haha) but I can start with myself and the people around me.

First I’m gonna change my own mindset. I’m going to be more proactive and try and minimize my bad habits. I will educate myself and my family on the happenings around the world and find out how I can try and make it better. I’m going to be responsible for my actions; I shall try to behave as positively as I can, I shall not share irresponsible, unverified, hurtful news on social media. I will recycle more, plant more trees, avoid wastage and spend my money in a more responsible way (ok this is going to be the most difficult haha). I will try and give more and expect nothing in return. InshaAllah

I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror,  I'm Asking Him To Change His Ways And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change…

There are a lot of rants and complaints about the actions of  leaders, the Apek across the street or OTHER people in general, but all the talks made me think, WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE?? 

If I die tomorrow, what would I be remembered for? So rather than play the never ending blame game, I’m going to try to make MY WORLD a better place InshaAllah, maybe it is a tiny change but it is a change nonetheless, and I believe if everyone do this rather than spend so much energy bashing on other people, a lot of positive outcome will come out of it. InshaAllah

Remember everyone, a kind word of encouragement can make a difference to one who’s feeling as if the world is coming down on them, a sip of drink and a slice of bread is heaven to one who’s been starving for a week; RM1 is a blessing for one who does not have a single cent.

No grand gestures needed just small and kind actions......

Happy Ramadan!!!
