Note to Self: I am responsible for my actions. I should not blame others for my mishaps in life, religion and knowledge. Mistakes and sins I commit, are my sins and my actions, done by be. I am responsible for what I bring into the world today, How I will make people feel today, How I will influence people to do good today, and How I will conduct myself today...

As a Muslim.

If I don't pray Asr prayer, its my own fault, not the train conductor's fault for being late, I could have prayed before I left or when I arrived or on the way.

If I am rude with the sales lady because she made a mistake with my bill, its my fault, not hers, I could learn to have more patience.

If I don't smile at another muslimah when walking down the street and this hurts her feelings, its my fault, I could have smiled at her out of charity even though I am in a bad mood.

If I don't get to live where I want to live and have to move to a far away place and this makes me depressed, angry, and rude with people, its my fault, I choose to be rude,depressed, and angry, I could have faith in Allah and HIS divine decree and pray to Allah to give me patience, and good from this(moving) that I feel is bad for me, but may be good, Only Allah knows Best. If I show patience and strive in the cause for Allah, Inshallah, I will get a big reward from my God for using this knowledge the Quran has taught me to use.

Live your life by Intention. Intention to do good, be good, and worship Allah good.
If your intentions are pure then Allah knows best.
Whats happens after you intend something is "Allahs Will", so accept it with patience and prayer and seeking reward from Allah and Inshallah this is what you will get!
