2016, you’ve been a wonderful year.
The past year has been a great journey for me as I experience the pains and joys of finishing the final year of uni life. 2 years has passed way too quickly as I look back and reflect at the regrets i face while completing my studies. I know that i should have done better, i know that i should have put in more effort and I know that I should have increased my GPA and stuff.
But hey, I think i’ll just be thankful just as long as I scrape through uni life, no? I don’t know, uni has been a series of ups and downs for me. It’s one of the hardest time of my life but it’s also the most memorable. From uni, I got to learn the pains of hardships and I also learnt that it is always worth the effort. Most importantly, I learnt that after all the hard ships, there will be times of ease in the future.
So 2016 has been nothing but a joy. The time where I struggle to finish my final semester with 5 modules on top of me but I somehow managed to overcome it with a hell lot of effort. 2017 will not be easy, i guess. It’s time to venture out into that world out there with new people, new relationships and new beginnings.
I’ve been blessed this 2016. I was showered with unwavering friendships from the close people around me who has been endlessly giving me a helping hand and a listening ear whenever i need someone to talk to. Also, the love of family that can never be bought with money. I feel so so blessed to have ended my 2016 on a wonderful note with the huge family which I will always cherish in my heart.
Here’s to many more accomplishments and brighter days ahead of me in 2017, Insya Allah. Thank you, 2016. You’ve been really good to me. 🙂
Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that you are not being put through tests for nothing. Every single thing happens for a reason and most of the time it is to make you realise of the good in every test that you are being put through.
I’ll say that I am probably in need of much prayers and strength to go through this current chapter of my life right now. I don’t know, maybe it’s God’s way of showing me the true nature of the people around me and to make me an even stronger person that I am right now? I have become selfish to the point where I only want the best for myself without putting in much efforts on my part but I figured that this is not the person I should be, at least for now.
Please, allow me to pass through this ordeal with ease Ya Allah. Forgive me if I’ve been distancing myself from you lately.
The month of Ramadhan has left us yet again with the lingering feelings of regrets as we reminisce the time we’ve wasted during this holy month when we could have made full use of it for Ibadah and doing things to please the Almighty.
People always say that we should always make the current year’s Ramadhan better than the previous years and Alhamdulillah, I think this is probably the best Ramadhan to me thus far. I’ll make sure that the next Ramadhan will be even better.
What I love the most about the month of Ramadhan is the family spirit which was evidently present during this entire month. From eating together to praying together to helping out in the kitchen to rushing to the mosque together. This is definitely something which we can never get to fully experience in other months. Even though our family is close, but how often are we all present at home at the same time to have our dinner together? How often do we make time to pray together? How often do we get to sit down during dinner and chat for that short 30 minutes?
Indeed, Ramadhan is a beautiful month to all of us. Alhamdulillah for another year of Ramadhan and Insya Allah, we’ll all meet the next Ramadhan with a better self.
Salam Syawal to all the Muslims out there. Minal Aidil Walfaizin. 😌
09 Ramadhan 1437H.
There is no end to it if you think of the aspects in which life hasn’t been fair to you. Put yourselves in someone else’s shoes and understand their perspective before evaluating how difficult things are for you.
I may complain and whine that I’ve been forced to grow up and take up the responsibility that adults do because there isn’t any choice for me as the oldest in the family but the one thing I forgot is to take into consideration of the closest people around me. I may have just lost a mother but for others, they may have lost a wife, a companion in discussing about personal matters, a person to share the financial burdens with and a partner in life.
Count your blessings and do good to your parents. For they have the key to bringing you to heaven.
“And we have enjoined man to do good to his parents.” -Al Ahqaaf, 46:15.
02 Ramadhan 1437H
“Ramadan is the month whose beginning is mercy, whose middle is forgiveness and whose end is freedom from fire.” – Prophet Muhammad
There are many many times in life where we wished that we weren’t born the way we are now after a fight with a sibling or when we are faced with tight financial situations or when we feel that we are not good enough for something or when we thought that we don’t have what it takes to achieve something, but the one thing we fail to realize is that every single thing that has been planned for us, whether we like it or not has its’ own silver lining.
Never be ungrateful for being who you are just because things don’t go your way. Be grateful and look on the brighter side of things because Alhamdulillah, it could have been worse. Don’t blame the bad situation, instead look at the situation and thank Allah for giving us yet another obstacle for us to learn from and improve ourselves.
Salam Ramadhan to all the fellow Muslims. May this Ramadhan be your best Ramadhan so far and fill it with various food for the soul and mind.
Dream big. The sky is so high, so wide and so blue that it is filled with endless possibilities and imaginations. People often do not realise how much a little dream can push someone to achieve their goals and be who they are today.
I want to start dream big too, so that just like anyone else, I too can achieve my goals.
We’re exactly 6 months through 2016 and I don’t really know how to feel for the fact that 2016 will end in about 6 months.
I’ve kind of made my decision on overloading my modules next semester because at least, I can get school done and over with. I don’t hate school, really but I just feel like there are seriously so much more I want to do once I am done with school and I can finally step out of whatever burden that’s been haunting me in my head.
They say that the world out there is tough and that we should “enjoy school while you are still a student”, but a part of me wants to explore that huge world out there and do what I love without any obligations tied down to me (of course, being a student has it’s advantage too).
I am really praying that I will be able to pull through my final semester next sem. Let’s get this done and over with by the end of 2016. Who knows, maybe 2017 could be the start of a new beginning for me? 🙂
(ps: I’ll prolly start blogging and ranting here again, just because.)
