Bunga mawar mekar ditaman bonda,
Haruman nan indah menyisip segenap ruang,
Hati wanita jangan disentuh jika bukan niatmu untuk menyunting dirinya,
Biarkan saja dia menunggu yang pasti, yang buatkan hatinya riang.
Being in a group of women with so many talents and gifts to offer has aspired me to become a better woman. A woman of substance.
To achieve that I myself have to go through a journey of realization and acceptance.
Accepting that I am a human with potentials to grow. Tap into myself and see the gifts that He The Majestic has given me. At the same time realizing that I can and I will make mistakes. It is part and partial of learning, no?
It is only when we're in the arena battling the challenges thrown at us that we will come out as a woman with substance.
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah.
Some part of you is locked and not shown to the public. That part is perhaps, the one you perceive as ugly, undeserving of attention from others. It might be true. But it might be false as well.
You have been shutting yourself out from people who really cares. Have you ever thought, that someone out there, is going to see that side of you and end up loving you more at their soul level? Just as much as you are able to show up in your innermost soul level?

I've been reading and learning on vulnerability this past year and I think it has helped me so much. Putting it into practice is one of the worst nightmares, to show up as whole person with highs and lows is not easy as it seems. Materially, I did not acquire much this year (except for books that are piling up!). But to have my inner self grow, that is a much better achievement. All good things are from Allah The Most High, and the weaknesses are all mine. Alhamdulillah 'ala kulli hal.
Mati itu sentiasa dekat.
Tanpa sedar ia selalu datang melawat
Menunggu detik dan tika
Pohon selalu pada Dia biar kita mati dalam iman bukan dalam alpa
Biar kita mati dengan hati bersih daripada cela dan noda
Sebab mati itu sentiasa menjengah dalam tidur dan jaga
