Almost everyday we are faced with a situation where we have to take a leap of faith whether we realize it or not. That is because, as we decide on something we realize He is the One who determines the outcome. As a proof of servitude we can only try our best and grab the opportunity as if it was rare like a leap day, like today the 29th of February which comes along every four years. By right we should treat each and everyday like a leap day.
Let's treat each day as if it's an extra day like a leap day, and face it wth realization that it's not just about "me" and what "I" could take from others, be it their time, trust, dignity or whatever. It's about giving. No, it's not just about giving. It's about giving something good. Let's heed the advice given by Habib Umar bin Hafiz: "Become a source of peace and happiness to the people around you."
And Steve Jobs was certainly right in saying: "Going to bed at night saying we have done something wonderful, that's what matters to me."
