… having starry nights.
… watching a hummingbird flying around between the poppies.
As my Ramadan 2016 is on its last week, I found this nice gentle reminder I’d love to share with you. This exercise is not solely for Muslims, but it is also great for whoever you are. For all of us who always strive for better meaningful life.
Spend fifteen minutes daily to think about things that you should be thankful for.
Recall people in your life, whom you may have taken for granted like your parents, spouse, children, co-worker, or teacher, who were caring and loving.
List some of Allah’s gifts that are not tangible or were not obvious to you before. Sulayman, a follower of the Prophet’s Companions, once said: “Remembering His blessings makes one love Allah.”
This simple mental exercise not only makes you a grateful person, but also a healthy one. According to a 2001 research bythe Institute for Research on Unlimited Love (IRUL), based in Ohio, just fifteen minutes a day focusing on the things you are grateful for will significantly increase your body’s natural antibodies, will make you less vulnerable to clinical depression, and will keep your blood pressure and heart rate stable.

I am still
The pain you caused
That one day
It shall be
The old man winter

Exit to the backyard
Take a walk to the wood
See those wild roses
Embrace the fragrance of summertime
