Alhamdulillah, we get to live to see another day in this beautiful yet harmonious world. Lets make du'a and seek repentance. One way the heart and mind will be calm and be peaceful.
Throughout our life, there will always be a horrid dream that probably has come true in our life. Let's face it, you don't want to remember it right? now lets all just try to forget all the terrible things from the past that happened to us, whether it is from our childhood, school, college, university or from now, the beginning and the present of our adulthood.
How to forget the past? Just focus on the future and the present. Enjoy all the things that is in front of you, whether you like it or not, still you have to go through it. That's what we called life. Everyone has been given the chance of one life. To have another life mean that we are so lucky He still gives us the chance and hope to make it a better one.
"People change as time flies, but the memory may remain". - Anonymous
We grow so fast that we didn't flashback at what we do few years back, it may seem that we don't want the memories to haunt us again but there still a good side to this. There is still bits of pieces that we can take from our past memories like experience and momentum. These two would be considered as the main power to our survival, without these two, we may never get back up from falling.
Experience - Knowledge that we gained from action of our past, which will remind us of what should we do correctly the next time if certain situation occurs.
Momentum - Once we fall, our momentum might decline really bad, probably really down that you think you don't have the strength to get back up and all hopes may seemed lost. Nevertheless, be remembered! you still have the chances to rise and set your momentum straight again by gather all your confidence, mental strength and physical strength. (Pray to Him, set your intention (niat) straight and may He guide you to the correct path).
Let us rise and take all the distances memories into experience that we may cherish. Let us ponder into the future, once we rise from the ashes, greater things will come to us for those who are willing to take the risk. Always have in mind that Allah is very near to us, just raise your hand and InsyaAllah, He will help you no matter how big the obstacle is. He will show you the way and maybe the easiest way, but it is up to you to walk and work you way through it.
There is no reward if there is no effort.
Forget all the people around you who want to put you down, they wanna see us fallback. They do this because you are one further step away from victory. Them? just a friction between you and victory/ultimate prize.
If we ever lost into the distance, lets remember Him, Allah SWT. He will guide you back to the right path, if you wanted to. Your path of life is your own choice, but the obstacle may vary. Don't let you heart be astray. He has given you so many, yet in your heart there is ignorance?.
Without Him, we may never rise from our fall, He aid us in so many ways that you couldn't thank Him enough.
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
(Maya Angelou, And Still I Rise?)
