Perspectives....

Driving to class today, the traffic backup felt endless, then the injury accident changed to fatality. Suddenly sitting in traffic felt like a precious gift.

Training for Race for the Cure feeling hopeless as cramps ached my sides, I thought of this which Tee posted. I have no excuses.

Reading for Torts the 130 pages seemed daunting and I bemoaned the impending exam preparation, then I read this and thought of the millions without such luxury.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle- Albert Einstein.

Just don't really understand how important perspective is, until you are looking at something like a draped car after an accident.

Then I truly see how blessed I am that I made it where I was going. And how blessed I am in every other area of my life. It annoys me though, because at times it takes a tragedy for me to see that, ugh!

I truly try to live my life like everything is a miracle. To enjoy my home, husband, kids, friends and most of all my time. Somehow I think time is our most precious gift. It's so unlike money or other materials things. We can usually remake the money we've spent or rebuy what we have used, but time....once it's gone and the moment or opportunity has passed by, there is no recapturing it. I really don't like saying, "Gosh, I should have....."

OK..that was sortofa rant, sorry.

I'm thankful for the reminder!!!

OMGosh, it's time to go be with my little jewels at school....don't want to be tardy and have to sign in.

Have a GREAT weekend.

love the quote- makes u think

Aisha said...

Mystic, Bedouin, Edward Ott sounds like you have the right perspective :)

Nermeen, sure! I dont know how your course works but mine is a year long thing. Ugh. Last semester was negligence this semester is more products liability, defamation, etc. Did you guys cover all that in one semester?

Mommyblogr, time is most certainly the most precious gift. Money comes back... time does not. In a culture of money driven values as we see every day with bankruptcy higher than ever, and people buying more than they can afford its important to keep values like time with loved ones at the forefront of our values. You could be working and bringing in more moolah for the house but is anything worth more than your son wondering if your speeding will give him circus tickets? I doubt it, moments like those are priceless.

Wayfarer and "it's me", thanks:)

Tee said...

Amen to that. That photo is such an inspiration isn't it?

Even when I complain I realize how blessed I am. For example I blogged about how stressed I am trying to get Julian into pre-school... Then I think about poor children throughout the world who don't even own a single book, let alone have a pre-school to apply to.

Perspective can change your whole life.

I belong to the first group who thinks nothing is a miracle.

we had a team of moz running last year, but i ended up walking b/c i over-trained and got a peg leg. so be careful!

and happy studying... :)

Enyur said...

I think even the littlest things in life are a miracle. Sometimes we just take them for granted.

Aisha said...

Thanks Zak :)

Shabina yeah i'm going to try it :) Some ppl from my law school are making a team and so I'm training to keep up with them b/c I think I'm the slowest of the bunch :)

Enyur said...

"ussee" bus thori dair layee ghaib saan...but I'm back now! hehehehe thanks!! It was one heck of a week man!

Raheel said...

miracles do exist but everything can't be a miracle as such.

Subhana said...

I only believe in 'kismat' and 'takdeer-e-Ilahi', I dont think miracles fall under either of the two groups.

Aisha said...

Enyur: welcome back though :)

Raheel, true... :)

Subhana... well yes its all God's will so to speak but for us of limited knowledge and wisdom his will can often seem miraculous (at least me) :-)
