Assalamualaikum dan Salam Sejahtera.....
The last four years of my life (when I was in Miri) are definitely going to be extremely exciting moments that I will never forget. I have been trough so many incredible ups and downs with so many different wonderful people and thankfully I have always had very good friends by my side. Unfortunately, I am kind of separated from many of my amazing friends even though I would like to keep in touch with all of them, I know that it will be very hard to since we're each going to go our separated ways. Furthermore, we're step on different land now and I know I will always have such beautiful friends here in peninsular. I flew back to my motherland. Luckily, I will have many memories to look back from 2006 to 2010. Throughout these unforgettable years, Allah has tested me with indescribable test for a man to take control his own future of which deep inside I believe it's still at ambiguous phase. He gave me something...the unplanned and impromptu event that count until today. The thing that completed me myself.
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they are meant to be there, to serve you some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you to figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be, your neighbor, a long lost friend, or a complete stranger. When you lock your eyes with them, you know at the very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way. As for me, it's happened. I believe that I was on the top of my career path. At young age, I had climbed the ladder very fast without realizing I may fall. I don't even secure the basic tightly and finally I fell down. I will not finger point of my downfall. I have to learn how to start over. The people that I have met had influenced my life and it is not bad for me to keep walking with good murmur.
Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower or heart. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. If you ever watched The Adjustment Bureau starring by Matt Damon, you may say that fates will be never uncertain but our life is certain. It's a guideline for you to run your life either you will choose the right way or the wrong ones. You setting up the goal and reach the goal by your own. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without the small test, whatever they may be, life would be a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless. The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you have experienced, help to create who you are and who you become. Believe me!.
Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most emotional and important ones. If someones hurts you, betrays you, or break your heart, forgive them for they helped you to learn about trust and the importance of being cautious. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because in a way they are teaching you to love and how to open your hearts and eyes to things. If you could turn bad things into your own perspective and take it as a lesson, you'll be able to overcome piece of tests that come to you. The thing is, never give up and make use what you have, what you have learned and appreciate people around you.
Make everyday count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you never talked before and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself that you are a great individual and believe in yourself, it's hard for others to believe in you. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets. Most importantly if you love someone, just tell him or her, for you never tomorrow may have in store. Learn a lesson in life each day that you live. Last but not least, I have learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
