Anticipate Good and You Will Find it

On multiple occasions, I have been told a famous saying that translates to:

"anticipate good and you will find it."

A lot of times in the midst of chaos we forget Allah, we forget to turn back to him. Something I have learned is to remember that at the end of the day Allah has our fate in his hands and He is the only one that can help us. Therefore, in our times of need it is always important to remember that we always have to turn back to Allah, and that He will never give us a trial or test that is harder than we can handle. Even when you feel like there is no one you can turn to with your trouble and no one that you can open up to, Allah already knows what you are going through, so there isn't a better person you can turn to. He knows what is visible and what is in your heart. I know this is easier said than done, but start with just talking to Allah, whether it is through duaa, salah, reading quran, or just thinking optimistic thought in hopes that inshaAllah they translate.
