    It's both a blessing and a curse. It's great having that goal and never settling, but at the same time I am rarely satisfied with things.

Look at all these things - I won a EMA last week.

    Providence creates an unfolding situation that is exactly what the person needs, although not always what he may think he wants or desires.

This is called bad luck or later, A Blessing in Disguise.

Here's wishing you the courage to keep growing so that you may know " or continue to know " the blessing of oneness.
    — Yehuda Berg

    So often we think that Allah only tests us with hardships, but this isn't true. Allah also tests with ease. He tests us with na`im (blessings) and with the things we love, and it is often in these tests that so many of us fail. We fail because when Allah gives us these blessings, we unwittingly turn them into false idols in the heart.

    Others are affected by what I am, and say, and do. So that a single act of mine may spread and spread in widening circles, through a nation or humanity. Through my vice I intensify the taint of vice throughout the universe. Through my misery I make multitudes sad. On the other hand, every development of my virtue makes me an ampler blessing to my race. Every new truth that I gain makes me a brighter light to humanity.
    — William Ellery Channing
