[Part 1 Here]
It's all lies really. They don't mean any of it all. Sweet talk, yup, that's all it is. Truth is, when you really need someone, when you need a shoulder to cry on or even when you just need some nice company...no one comes to you.
They say they'll be there when you need them, but they're not, not when it really matters. But how would they know? They aren't telepathic.
Every step she took on the path seemed light and gently. The rain drizzling all over her face. It was nice, she liked it, but she was outraged inside. She always had a thing for the gloomy weather. It was mysterious and kept her thoughts concealed. Her black backpack bounced on her back as she stepped into another puddle on the gray sidewalk. Who am I to trust now? It's not like I can tell everyone..besides, who would I tell? HIM? Or the friends who wouldn't even return my call?
What she was afraid of was now her living reality.

At times it seems like everything is just against you. Nothing is in your favour and you feel like a complete failure unable to achieve anything.
Not only that, but you keep hitting road blocks, and if not that, then well.. let's just say your faced with situations which make you a not-so-happy-camper. Where's that good luck charm when you need it ?
A friend once said to me, "Life is sad when you make it sad." Which is true..but sometimes things are just meant to go wrong and make life sad--make you miserable. And it could be anything, from work to school, to family, to friends! All at once.
But I guess we need those sad moments in life so that we can really appreciate those good times that we also have.
And even those upsetting times are valuable because we can learn from our mistakes. Just today me and two of friends were downtown..searching hospital to hospital for a volunteer opportunity. All had the same response: "sorry, it's too late..maybe next summer" ...bummer eh? Try having that said to you several times while having to walk in the boiling heat.
But, in the end, all three of us learned that from now on, no more wasting time. And we actually managed our time and found some other places to volunteer. So it was quite productive, not to mention fun! :)
So in summary.. life is sad.. at times. But those sad times are completely vital in our lives, because they are what help us to realize what and how to prioritize our life and make us successful...no matter what it is that we do.

Sometimes we need a reality check..a sort of realization to get us back on track..to get us focused again. THIS VIDEO (a-must-watch! You'll need to have facebook) just makes you realize that even some of our small daily habits are ones we just might end up regretting..once we are no more..
As being a Muslim (Alhumdulillah).. prayers are a must. And we never know when our lives will be taken away from us.
...how many times have you heard that? How many times have you said that yourself? But the real question is.. how many times did you actually take that seriously?
I'm going to be completely honesty, I've heard and said that phase many times.. but then I find myself wandering off from that concept. I find myself living by putting things off until tomorrow (not in the case of prayers however, Thank God).
"Cleaning up the closet, the dresser ...I'll do it later.. I've got all summer!" By the reality is, life is NOT under our control. No matter how much we deny it, we know it isn't.
And so, to all my Muslim sisters and brothers.. please..the worldly tasks can wait, do nothing that will interrupt your prayers. And to those who already do not ignore namaz, MashAllah.. keep it up!
..because you never know what the next moment beholds..
May Allah (SWT) be with and guide us all. Ameen.
