Monthly Reflections

September Reflections

Assalaamu ‘alaikum – peace be with you.

Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes. It is the feeling that keeps you going when all the odds are stacked against you and the ability to see light despite being surrounded by darkness. Hope is one of the most potent and powerful human emotions we feel and can at times be lost, even though it never truly disappears. It is the extraordinary strength which lies within each and every one of us, that makes us human and allows us to see, believe and dream of a future which will be more beautiful than today.

At Inspirited Minds we understand the importance of hope when it comes to our healing on an emotional, physical and spiritual level and how it can significantly improve our mental health and wellbeing. It not only reduces feelings of helplessness, boosts happiness, reduces stress and anxieties, and keeps you focused during times of adversity; it also keeps you grounded, and connected to life. For all those who may be struggling we pray for hope, strength and courage during times of distress, difficulties and hardships. 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,
