As time passes by, I have realized that 'change is rather the only constant thing'. As for me, growing up revolves around creating and achieving the goals set gradually. And after one point of time, there will be a long pause for self-reflection before continuing to the next chapter in life. Like the saying goes 'the happiest people are those who embrace the changes in life positively'. Often, things will never stay the way they are. Be it people, things and everything in the world except of course Allah The Almighty. I have to admit that I am not a good muslim yet although I hope and pray that i will be better from time to time. I sometimes hinder myself from talking about religious matter because I don't think I am competent for that. However, I thank Allah endlessly for all the gifts I am given with: my family, husband, friends, previous job, current doctorate and the life i have now.
Growing up equals to more responsibilities being put on your shoulders to carry. This applies to the responsibilities you bear at home, in the community, for your country and the world. As a grown up, we are expected to behave like one and being independent, confident and by having faith in ourselves would partly suffice to achieve our goals albeit the challenges that might come our way. I have just watched 'Tanda Putera' and the history itself could be a good teacher for the people to unite and love each other. I love Malaysia and the people indefinitely and I hope Malaysia will be peaceful forever although some of the issues that we have. Bak kata pepatah Melayu, 'Sedangkan lidah lagi tergigit, apa lagi negara yang berbilang kaum'. Okay, i modified the pepatah a bit :P It is good to have healthy arguments as it may generate fresh and new ideas for the country but we must never let the complacency of having the freedom of speech violate the harmony that our ancestrors had worked hard for.
In a nutshell, no one is perfect. Therefore, we have to learn to solve any issues with diplomacy and tactfully plan the things we want to say or do. Is it obvious that i am a 'green' person? I did a personality test in the previous company that i worked for and the results revealed that I am very 'green'. 'Green' signifies that the individuals of this colour are the 'peace keepers'. We avoid conflicts as we prefer to solve things in a more diplomatic way. But I also sense that the 'red' energy inside of me can be very dominant when triggered :P
okay goodnight! :)
