Mistakes… Loads of them.
Bad choices… more than you can imagine.
Wrong decisions… all the time.
I wondered why? Why would someone lose a lot? Why wouldn’t we think right? How many times should we fall before we learn not to?!
Playing the tape of my life, looking back at time… everything changes. The feelings, the choices, the opinions, the situations and the entire world.
That’s how we are, we are not meant to stay the same, as the clock ticks, our looks change, our hearts, our way of thinking… that’s the sunnah of life because that’s how we were created by the Almighty God. The seed blooms into a flower after going through some dirt in the soil; We bloom, but only after this life takes a part of us and gives us something bigger, we learn but only after going through a difficult lesson, we succeed but only after we fail.
So shall I not thank the Lord for my mistakes, bad choices and wrong decisions? Oh yes, I would. As much as I regret my sins, but I do not regret the repentance I took from them and the lessons I was taught. For every no, for every disappointment, for every pain, tear and sadness… there was me growing through life. God’s no was just a redirection to a better road because every saint was once a sinner and every sinner shall be a saint one day if God wills.
Stay near me. Guide me when I’m lost.
Make me useful. Help me when life gets me tossed.
Let me be successful. Make me productive.
For I wish to build in this world and always be constructive.
Don’t waste your time regretting mistakes, start learning lessons and changing your life.
