Is the glass half empty or half full?

assalamualaikum wbt bismillahirrahmanirrahim (:

a second post in a month?wow isnt this impressive considering how long i have abandoned this blog.but still it remains as one of the most important windows to which i spill my feelings out.. 

so today my post will be about tests..yes! i think all of us are very familiar with this verse 

[29.2] Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, We believe, and not be tried?

so obviously God has said so many times in the Quran that trials and tribulations will be a part of life.but of course each and everyone of us is exclusive!we will be tested differently.
some of us face very difficult test and some are lucky to have it easy.It's true that the level of difficulty can sort of hinting how high the level of imaan a person has but that's just one out of so many factors.that should not be a reason for us to underestimate the test others are facing..have u ever heard a saying that goes one man's meat could be another man's poison? this is completely true..some of us might at one point wonder about his imaan especially upon seeing people around him being tested..he might ask himself why aint i got tested?does that mean he is not pious?i dont think so..i'd love to think that apart from how big the test is,the impact it brought on us is rather an important point too..well as i said we are our tests are exclusively designed to suit us..maybe someone like me need a hard slap on my face to learn but others might just need a gentle pat on the back.. i'll give you an example.there is a story being told when i was attending a program called sayonara jahiliah in london about a year and a half ago. a girl was walking and then she realised that she stepped on a chewing gum and it sticked to her shoe.that makes it hard for her to walk.then she thought to herself that sins are pretty similar to chewing gums..if you have too many sticking to your shoes it'll make it difficult for you to continue heading to your goal.see how a simple test can make a different if we really think?but certain people might not just get the idea by facing the same thing that she that's why we have different tests for each of us.again without denying the fact that yes maybe the level of difficulties of a test can define one's level of imaan,how big the impact it has on us also could be a great factor..little test which brings you closer to God is way better than huge test which makes you keep questioning why did that happen to you! sometime it's not the test but it's how we react to it is more important. so cheer up everyone.God gives us all fair chances to realise how great He's up to us whether or not to grab it (: 

i hope what i wrote makes sense..feel free to speak out if you think what i said is wrong.i'd love to be corrected (:
