THE WHEEL


As Salamu-Alaykum, my lovelies!

Sometimes, I feel like my day-to-day routine gets in the way of life. Well, in a sense, my routine is my life. I spend a bulk of my (week)day at work, and sometimes I feel like there's not much time to do anything else once I get home. Before I know it, its bedtime... and then I wake up the next day and have to do it all over again. 

Don't get me wrong - I'm not against a healthy routine. It gives your life a sense of rhythm. It prevents idleness and gives you a purpose in life. However, we sometimes forget that life is bigger than that. We get so caught up doing mundane things that we often forget to allocate some time to do something that really counts. 

And what really counts? I mean sure, getting an education and progressing in our career are both very important aspects of who we are and who we will become. But sometimes, we get so engrossed in these things that we neglect other equally important aspects of our lives. 

How many times have we skipped breakfast, or forgotten to have lunch because we were too busy, or because we were running late? We don't have the time to eat healthy or balanced meals, so we opt for ready-meals that fill up our stomachs with absolutely no nutritional value. We might be able to justify it now, but in retrospect, what good is all the money you make if you won't be around long enough to spend it?

The same goes for neglecting family, friends and religious duties. As the saying goes, "no one on their deathbed ever says they wish they had spent more time at the office". More often than not, it's the little things. Things you do for yourself, and things you do for others. Things that create fond memories here on earth and things that will stand between you and Hell in the hereafter. These are all things we need to remind ourselves to do .. things we need to create time for.

On that note, I have decided to add a new element to my blog called "THE WHEEL". All you have to do is click on it and you will receive your one little thing to do for that day. Just one little thing to add to your to-do-list for that day that will either benefit you, or someone else. I have added THE WHEEL to the main menu, so it is very easy to find. I'll add more tasks to it as time goes by, and I will also take any suggestions. Also, if anyone completes any of the tasks and has a story to share about it, please feel free to do so in the comment section below the wheel! I hope this helps us all to do that extra one little thing a day that will make a positive change to ourselves, or to somebody else.

If you do just one thing today.... spin THE WHEEL!
