Today is the first day of 2013. Another year living on this planet Earth, Alhamdulillah. Although not officially since my birthday is on 1st of June, but I am 29 years old this year. Another year for the 3 series. Honestly, I am looking forward for life; you know, to age gracefully and to have a lot of experiences so that my life and mind will be enriched. Now I am older, I understand why olden people say that “Age makes the men wise”. It’s cliche but it’s true.
Anyway, I’ve mostly accomplished my last year’s resolutions; in terms of doing some property and financial investments as well as to tour and see the world; besides that to do or to accomplish extraordinary or unexpected feats such as doing Bungy Jump, travelling to Macau by TurboJet, etc. Life is beautiful, indeed.
So this year, I am hoping to increase my investments – property and financial and to manage my finance in a more thrifty and brilliant way, Insya ALLAH. Money does NOT simply come out from tree outside your house and neither it is easy; you have to work hard and never expect the money to be delivered to you on bended knees. No such thing as “easy money”, at least that’s what I believe. I strongly believe in work hard and safe hard. That is why I am not into all these Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) although there are several people who wanted to rope me in due to ‘interpersonal skills’ (ever since I was back in university but no sire!). I love to befriend with people and socialize and I know I have the power for persuasion but to do it on business basis (“kiss ass”), I am just not interested. That’s why I quit banking too because I am not into entertaining clienteles and stuffs. But hey, the knowledge is good for me! (,”)
Other than that, I am hoping to expand my horizon on seeing the world or even in Malaysia itself. I need to travel to see the lives of other people and experiencing the cultures and customs so that my mind will be broaden, Insya ALLAH. And I also hope that this year I will be able to visit one special place that is hold dear in my aspiration. To be 100% whether I am sure or not is subjective but I just pray and hope that it will materialize, Insya ALLAH. We hope and we aspire but eventually ALLAH SWT will transpire. So, we will see.
Living a healthy life is also one of my ambitions. The year 2012 has been the ‘come-back’ year after 2 years of hibernation. I aspire to take a few Fun Run just to boost stamina and leaving a healthy lifestyle; not the soporific lay-back!
Apart from that, I also aspire to increase the habit of reading. I think 2012 was the year where I have begin to restart back my interest to the books after been so deluded from them due to professional and personal affairs. I am hoping to dedicate myself more into reading brilliant books and novels to enrich my horizon and vocabularies of course. I am planning to venture into renowned and classical novels as well, in addition to the up-to-date thrillers and horrors that I love so much. It is important for me to keep abreast with artistic literature so that I can have knowledge about it when I converse with people around the world with the same interest, who knows.
And lastly, I am hoping and pray that I will become a better teacher for my career and also a better soul for the one(s) I love. I aspire to be a professional educator who make a difference in his pupils life and also the very existences enlighten the people around. At this juncture, I am always grateful to ALLAH SWT for the life and loves I have. I know it is impossible to have it all or to maintain everything as everything is God’s Borrowed Heavens but I pray for the time being, it won’t fade away, Insya ALLAH. I hope I can improve myself to become a better Moslem, Insya ALLAH.
