And never think that Allah is unaware of what the oppressors do (14:42)
Rest in peace, Trayvon.
tennis in a nutshell
Everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You’ve got to work hard to get to them. Your body is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.
I think once you accept that you’re alone, it starts to feel a little better. You start to enjoy your own company and those silences you dread are no longer filled with that ache of loneliness. You start to focus on yourself; you find your own happiness, or your own definition of it.
You find out about yourself, your identity not defined by the people around you.
You find you.
“I always thought it was way more important to be funny or to be honest than to look any sort of way.” - Emma Stone
