a lot going through my mind, as usual.
“sometimes we just need to admit how good our opponent is.”
kadang-kadang the cycle of life is just too non-stop. u thought u just finished one task, another one is coming; with even greater expectations and limitations that you just need to make it happen no matter what.
sometimes i feel i cant keep up with everything. i just wanna take everything slow one at a time but time is the enemy often and most of the time.
is this life?
i know that life doesnt come with a complete manual on how to walk on this earth, but if there is; i probably go back to when i was 5 and tell myself to go and read that book.
you will grow up. you will face so many challenges ahead. sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. sometimes you have to learn everything the hard way; sometimes you’ll find your own way to figure out everything. but not all.
sometimes you’ll become the best in what you do; provided you are resilient, persevere, and never give up when everything around you pushes you down.
sometimes nothing seems to be on your side, everything against you. people find satisfaction in knocking you down, seeing you crumble. fret not. life is always, always fair. when you’re down, the most important thing you must remember is how fast can you get up. so get back up. only then you’ll see; that for everything you lose, you’ll be given something bigger, something better in return. you just havent seen the bigger picture yet. so remember that; because for every time you fall down, you must learn how to get up again. and it’s never easy staying up all the time.
while life is so miraculous and inviting and seems to be promising so many beautiful things, kept in mind that you should always be careful with what you wish for. that is one thing. you may not always get what you wish for by the way; but you will always get what you need. be grateful. be practical, be logic, and be rational when you aim for the sky; for the ground is where your foot is all the time. unless you think you are flying in the sky!
never feel that you are alone. sentiasa ingat Allah. sungguhpun ada masa tiada manusia yang bisa menyembuh perasaanmu, ingatlah, pada Dia kau berserah. pada Dia kau bermohon. pada Dia kau cerita segalanya. Dia Maha Mendengar. Dia Maha Mengetahui. dan Dia Maha Adil.
when you wake up, get yourself into positive vibes. for that keeps you moving forward no matter what lies ahead of you for the rest of the day. be cheerful. give people smile. and never to judge anyone like you were seeing right through them. you will learn about people. you will know about the people around you. cherish them. and just be kind to everyone. because you never know how these kindness will benefit you in return in the near future. just be kind and stay positive.”
i can only wish the 5 years old me understand all of these. but surely, i’d be grateful to know all these from a very young age. just to be a better person.
just to be a better person.
