There are times in life when you feel your friend is going in the wrong direction and you might have a feel to let them go, it is their life after all.
I have always let my friends do what they want and me, myself have done what I felt like doing.
However there are times when you have to stand up and say “Dude, you are wrong!” This is the test of friendship. Don’t impose your opinion on them. They might have a different perception about what they are up to. But don’t hold your feelings too. Share your thoughts.
How many times have you felt to be the first one to break some news? you turn the radio on, heard a sale at some random store is on and that goes online as your facebook status!
I tell you, this number “one” has a role to play. Remember when being kids, thats what your mom used to say: “be the first one to finish your food, honey”. (On a weekend I say that at least three times to my little one)
We all know Neil Armstrong was the first man to land on moon. Do you know who the third person was? (I really count you in if you know it without crediting google) On another note the first relationship of your life holds a spot in your heart, remembered sweetly, bringing a smile on your face. But do you really remember all the crushes you had in high skool. (If you do either that person is now your spouse, or you had only few crushes, or you really have a very good memory!)
Life is a race and we all are athelets running to be the number one. (Inspired from ”world is a stage and we are all actors” , thanks to Shakespeare). The truth is we all want to stay in the picture and unintentionally boast about how updated we are. And no matter how we want to deny, it is true that we are racing to be number one, in no matter what it is. Sometimes (read it most of the times) it doent even matter to us. Imagine why would breaking a news matter to us? We are not paid for it. We have nothing to do with an ongoing sale. there are no vouchers to be gifted for some one who broadcast it, but we do.
It’s also true that we love people who keep themself updated with what’s happening around them. but there is this little difference between being first and being best that we should keep reminding ourslef.
Just for your information, when I was writing the article I thought being very creative and being the first one to write on the subject. Thanks to technology, even more so to google, I’m not! There have been millions who have wondered about the secret force behind being the first one!
I still think it’s not my fault that I was born after so much has happened. I could have been the first person on earth to see a UFO, but cruel time, my parents married late and I was born later than the person who actually did spot the UFO for the first time!
Trust me guys, there’s no harm in being the second one to do, achieve or hear something. It is indeed better. You are better informed, (Imagine the guy who first saw the UFO didnt even know what he’s looking at) you know a little bit more from the experience of the first one (and you agree experience counts) and then you know if it is factual or fictitious!
The term “The First-Ones” describes the oldest races in the known universe. These races are at least millions years old. Be sure you cannot be older than that and hence you cannot be the first one in many cases! Hence the title.
So next time you are running the race to beat someone for being number one, remember being first can be good but being second is more accurate. Afterall as they said it, winning is not in being number one, winning is doing better than before!
” Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life, Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”
Steve jobs said what I have always believed in and been wanting to say, may be tried to a few times but never came out as perfectly.
Unfortunately, for me it goes for everything. We all are gifted with brain, we all use it differently. But the worst is in imitating. I believe every person has a vision, a prospective for life. Sometimes we just get so busy in following the herd that we leave behind what we want and follow where everywhere else is heading to.
Life only comes once, follow your dreams. Make an effort to realise why you were sent into this world and try to be soemone whose name is not registered in people’s brain only but their hearts too.
Or die like someone who never made a difference in anyones life. Someone who throws money without realising the value of it. Someone who never realise how fast life is moving, every step taking us closer to death, away from life. Before you are a past, hardly remembered by anyone, take the step to be someone who can bring a change. Die with a satisfaction of not wasting your life but following your dreams.
I get amused when people forget about contentment. People working on their lives to get better, people praying for success, wealth, happiness, for anything…
Everything comes in life, but with time. If it doesn’t trust God it wasn’t meant for you. Again, how could it not come, how can you predict future? What holds you from believing that it will never come. “never” never comes until you are dead. And once you are dead then the world doesn’t matter.
No prayer unanswered and no question unheard, Just ask God in faith. He knows when it’s the best for us to have it and sometimes He tests us. Dont fail, dont disappoint and dont let your faith shake.
Be contented and be realistic. Trust in yourself, trust in destiny, trust in God. You can ask, you have to ask and He is the one who decides to give.
Thank for what you have and believe it to be the best for you.
If you dont, you will never be satisfied.
Nothing has defined limits, beauty, wealth, love, happiness… there is always more of it. It’s on you to decide where you are fulfilled. Hence the word contentment.
One thing is for sure if you are contented with what you have and what you are and if you believe life’s happening is for betterment, you will always be happy.
For last two years I thought my life would never be the same. I was so consistent that I really didn’t try hard to make it something that I wanted.
I would not say that two years of my life were wasted, there’s no way I can say that. I experience the miracle of nature, the birth of my darling daughter and devoted my then time to her. Now that I see her running and jumping around, I feel the time which seemed to have stopped then flew with some speed. I have been a full time mom, a full time housewife, a very dedicated one. And Im glad I did my role neat.
Life has to move on. Tabeer’s no more a baby and will be starting school soon, InshaAllah. I had to find some activities to keep myself engaged. And I’m glad I opted for the personality development ones.
I sorted out what I lack and the first thing I needed back was the confidence in myself. I joined Fitness First to keep my body active and to lose some extra pounds.
Second, I attended as a guest. Spoke on a table topic and next week I was doing the payments to join in. Yes, I’m a toastmaster now. And I’m so looking forward to improve my speaking skills, public facing confidence, vocabulary, grammar plus a bunch of nice people. I feel my blog will be happier with me as I get more quality content in here. For quite some time I’ve just been filling it up just to keep connected to it.
Karma, isn’t exactly a bitch. You have to work to get what you want. I hope to groom myself and be a better person as the new year starts and that’s what my new resolution will be.
I believe some times you can also have a new beginning. So instead of feeling helpless and bored you can start anew letting your dreams become real.
Im on the verge of making few of my unlimited dreams come true! InshaAllah.
In life if there’s someone to trust it’s the God, Allah.
People will come and go in your life but He will always stay.
And no matter how unjust people might seem, they may be able to cheat you in this world but in the other world they will be standing infornt of you cause we might hide form others what’s inside our hearts but Allah knows and He is never unjust.
So just hold on with hope and hide your scars, if they are true friends and tehy know your worth they will come back and speak the truth, if not let them go and you will get the reward later!
Sometimes I really wonder where my life’s heading to? Will I ever be the same person that I wanted to be? Or this is life for me.
I love challenges,monotony kills me.
Right now, Im at a point where my life seems stagnant. And trust me it’s depressing to see myself in this state. Just that I have to wait till my daughter reaches a stage when shes capable of taking care of herself.
For now, I’m the house wife, the mom and everything but not me.
Why do good people die young?
Why is it that when somebody is dead we acknowledge all the best that they had in themselves. Something we never did when they were alive.
I have no idea why this thing popped up in my sleepless, hyperactive mind.
On another note, it’s tough to be a sensitive person:)
I fear: being lonelyI hate: feeling left outI love : so many things. cooking,baking, decorating, roaming around, shopping, dressing up, coffee, popcorns… (umar and tabeer come in this category;))I want: to travel round the world, meet all my friends.I will: make my dreams come!I am: happy! (alhamdulilah)
