Taking things for granted

Life is too short to take things for granted. I am always grateful with what I have. I think Allah has given me a lot more than I had asked for. But being His servant (if I am qualify, that is), I would always ask for more each day. I would ask for blessings, I would ask for favours, I would beg that my burden and obstacles in life be lightened. I am grateful for my late father who had given me such a beautiful name. NURULHANA. It means the light of happiness in arabic. Indeed, I am determine to make myself happy and to make everyone that I care and love and everyone else around me happy. Sometimes, the devils will tell me that hey, Hana, you did not get the same in return. You have been pleasing others but people take you for granted. Hmm... is it true? Well, I love talking to myself, talking to my mind to make me understand situations, conditions and challenges that come to me from all angles. That is how I comfort myself. When I am able to assess the situation from the bird's eye view, I would say, hey Hana, you do good deeds for the sake of Allah, right? So, that is the end of the story. If I do good things, I am pleasing my Creator and not because I would want something in return. Meaning, it people take you for granted, do not complain. Allah knows what is in your heart. Yes, yes, I am fully aware that I should not have asked anything in return for all the good things I have done to others especially to the people I love and care. Only that deep inside me I am afraid if these people would regret for taking me for granted when I am no longer around. I do not want them to learn the hard way. I pray that happiness will always be mine. It is ok if others take me for granted because I always have Allah to turn to. I hope it will not be too late for the people I love and care to realise that I have done my all for the best of everyone. May Allah bless us all with Jannatul Firdaus.
