Greatness

Over the weekend, after the whole "anonymous" saga, I received this email from a young lady called Rose. It's followers like her is the reason why I blog, share my experiences and thoughts. Rose, thank you for the sincere email. Keep going after your dreams no matter how big or small they are. Allah is GREAT and HE will NEVER forsake us. I wish you all the best in life and do keep in touch ok. :)


This is just one of the many occasional emails I receive from total strangers. But the best thing about it is that each one of those who wrote to me can relate to my life story, my struggles and my journey. I blog because I want to stay real. I don't want to just paint daisies and roses, but also show the thorns amidst the beauty. That's life. Mine has never been perfect but it's the imperfection that makes it uniquely mine. 

You see and read many stories of success, but what you DON'T see is the struggle, tears and pain behind what goes through achieving those dreams. There are not short cuts to being successful. 

Speaking of success, I am nowhere near. I've got many more unfulfilled dreams that i'll continue chasing and I've still got many more milestones in history to create. Whenever I see my contemporaries doing well in life, I feel happy for them and I get inspired to be as great as them. There are reasons why there are chosen and living that desired path. God is fair and HE gives us what we deserve. So rather than going around all green-eyed to why some people are successful, doing well and you're not, let's focus back on ourselves, re-work our attitudes and go for the goal. 

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that,
but the really great ones make you feel that you too can become great. 

~ Mark Twain ~

If you want to be great, surround yourself with great individuals and fill your thoughts, heart and mind with greatness. Have faith, pray and In Shaa Allah, good things will come without you even realizing it. Meanwhile, let's continue to count our blessings and look forward to greater things! 

Have a good week ahead my dear readers! :)
