Right and Sad or Right and Happy?

Salam. Hai dunya dan seisinya. I was inspired by Yamin’s reminder as a food for thought. One could be patient by speaking out with rational and empathy about their thoughts and feelings without lashing out. This is because being stressed out doesn’t mean we have the right to be angry at other people. One could be patient by sharing a problem about another person without back biting nor exaggerating. This is because in that action he/she intends to find a solution. One could be patient by staying silent from the fear of the saying the wrong things. This is because through forgiving and forgetting, they hope they don’t make the situation worse. All in all, when we are presented with a sticky situation, seek to reconcile and be purified from the gift of tests. It’s about controlling ourselves to remain in control when all hell breaks lose. It’s about searching the wisdom in ourselves to act wisely. It is not about becoming a person who is more expressive through their words and actions. Eventually it will only result in more anger and resentment. It’s not about winning the situation. Would we rather be right and sad or right and happy? So seek right in the eyes of Allah not the wronged person, and we shall be happy. Lastly, […]

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Howdy 🙂 So 2 March 2017 denotes Bettunia’s 1st birthday. Wohoo!!! and she showed no sign of interest and enthusiasm whatsoever. While most parents of 1 year olds would go nuts ticking off to-buy list for their little munchkin’s very first birthday party, we, on the other hand, proudly did absolutely nothing…krikkrik. Alhamdulillah, regardless. It didn’t mean we did’t love her nor we didn’t care that she just turned into a fully healthy and happy 1 year old big baby girl. It’s just that birthdays never excite Abe. So I just followed with the flow. I came from a family who would curse any of us who didn’t wish nor buy a gift for the celebrated person. It was a family tradition. Still is. I remember trying to break it once by not giving my little brother a birthday gift, simply because he didn’t buy me anything for my birthday the year before. So revenge on, right…a year after. I was in my teens and he just came of age. Probably a some kind of identity crisis hit him at that point, not convinced that I was his true blood sister or something, that made he feel exempted from owing me a […]

Bismillahhirrahmanirrahim 🙂 so happy. hee. I know. I know. It’s been a while since I posted anything. My time had been occupied with an adolescent baby and…oh I just mean babies. Just kidding. Life is just not as straight forward anymore, seriously. Plans go awry all the time. Alas, we still just have to move on and keep planning. Getting a job was a straight forward thing for me once upon a time ago. For example my first job in Cheras, KL. After a month coming back from the US and staying at home sweet home Jitra, all of a sudden Mr. Father went berserk thinking their grown up kids were going to stay as noble monks in his grand cave house forever. He said get a job! So I applied for a job, within 15 minutes I got a call for an interview. I said ‘Yes!’ How easy was life. Mr. Father was quite surprised and happy about that but then remarked “You shall come and make a courtesy visit to the abode at least twice a week, in honor of your parents who miss you dearly…and prepare for your wedding.” Then came marriage…and mommyhood. I could set myself on the lose […]
