Be a mountain ,

I was told once that sore is the new sexy and so I decided to give it a shot. In all honesty, I love every bit of it (not that I feel anything sexy about it) haha.

I had the usual conversations with my siblings yesterday. Like a tradition, they decided to make fun of me. Not that I'm not used to it. Only because the reason was quite annoying. It all started when Afiqah mentioned it is about time for me to find someone. As if on cue, my brother started to say other things. And one thing led to another, I was left dumbfounded not knowing what to reply. I was so annoyed, that's for sure. I could sense the seriousness but I tend to ignore them. All they did was laugh when I dodged every question they spat to me. One word, annnnnnnnnnoooyyyyinnnnngggggg !!!!!

Andddd, I crossed upon this while I was reading some stuffs. It is really goooood. Love it so much.

When you deal with people, in reality you are creating your own personality. You are the one drawing the image that they have of you in their minds. Based on this impression, they decide how to deal with you, and whether to respect you or not. Make sure that the tree is firmly grounded and is not uprooted by the winds, no matter how strong they may be. Just an hour of patience will result in victory. The more intelligent you become, the less ignorant you are. The more your worth increases, the less angry you become. Just like the seas that are not moved by anything. Be like a mountain and no wind will ever shake you!

Mother should I build the wall ?

If you involuntarily continue to sing the next line when you read the title, Hello !
We should be buddies, BEST buddies :D

Basically, I just need a cactus that needs not to be watered everyday. Not that I forget my responsibility to water or change the water for my pretty flowers. With cactus, less responsibility yet I can still feed my eyes with greens every morning (bliss) !

It just that, as weird as it sounds, the flowers tend to attract ants. Yes, really. ANTS !

The flowers are not giving out nice smell. Definitely far from anything sweet.
And so, without a doubt, ants are attracted to me. I guess ?
Being acknowledged for being sweet by the ants. Oh heck, I definitely deserve a moment haha.

In the past, the best of people, the noblest of people, and the people that were most trusted in matters of religion would go to rulers and command them (to do good deeds, to rule justly, and to apply Islamic law); meanwhile, others would stay in their homes and take no part (in the affairs of society on a political level); no one benefited from the latter group of people, and no one even noticed them. But as for now, it is the most evil of people who go to rulers and command them. And those who stay in their homes and don’t go to them are the best of people.

Reap Maximal Profit .

O youth! You are like a person traveling in the desert while possessing priceless jewels that he intends to sell in the land of reward, so beware of falling into the trap of your treacherous desire so you do not end up selling what you have for less than of what it is worth. Otherwise, when you reach your destination and see those who made great profits, you will cry for your loss and say, ‘Oh how great is my regret over what I neglected in regard to Allah. However, regret shall never restore what has been missed.

High Motivation

Remember Greeny ?

Well, I got myself another Greeny since the first one did not end really well. And the second one did not end really well too (And I silently thought that I got green fingers haha sorry Ayah). Well I simply blamed my laziness. So, I decided to buy myself fresh flowers every week since I'm putting them pretty flowers on my study table. Talking about great company. It was great until I realized they didn't smell really good and its starting to bother me. I am definitely not throwing them away. Just going to wait until they ....... (did not end really well too haha).

Andddddddddddddd when I'm lazy, this quote helps. :)

Knowledge and action are twins whose mother is high motivation.
