Even when you tear its petals off one after another,
the rose keeps laughing and doesn't bend in pain.
"Why should I be afflicted because of a thorn?
It is the thorn which taught me how to laugh."
Whatever you lost through fate,
be certain that it saved you from pain.
~ Rumi, Petals

Whenever in despair, remember, you are a Rose and your beauty is elevated by the thorns in your life, if you choose it to be so. And when fate plays its role, remember, any loss in this world is a temporary loss or a temporary loan. A blessing in disguise; if we only understood. 

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned. {Surah Al Baqarah, 2: 245}

P.S. Dear readers, my schedule is somewhat tight these days. I need this time to focus on something important. My apologies for the lack of posts for the past week and next few days or so. Keep me in your dua's.
