Monthly Reflections

May Reflections

Assalaamu ‘alaikum – peace be with you.

Gratitude is the affirmation of goodness coming from an external source and has been described as the memory of the heart. It cultivates a sense of humility, contentment and inner peace that comes not from wanting more, but rather from acknowledging what we already have, is more than we need. It is one of the oft-neglected aspects of our lives, which is essential for our own spiritual, emotional and mental wellbeing at times of fortune and especially at times of adversity. Knowing what we appreciate in life means knowing who we are, what matters to us and what makes each day worthwhile.

At Inspirited Minds we are grateful for the privilege to be in a position to offer help to people when they need it the most. We are grateful for our team of passionate volunteers who continuously go the extra mile and dedicate their free time to our cause and all the other support we receive which makes our work possible. We pray we are able to practice gratitude regularly in our hearts, in our speech and in our actions, and as always, we are open to your comments, ideas and suggestions; so please do get in touch by replying to this email.

Du’as always,
