As I get older, I realize my time is ticking away and all the things I’ve always planned on doing is either never going to happen or I have to start putting my plans into action. Sometimes, I tell you, Im afraid of what others think or how others will react because Im a person who speaks my mind without any hesitation. But as I get older, I worry about that less because 20 or 30 years from now, I may not be capable of doing what I’ve always wanted to do. I may not be able to speak how I wanted to speak. I may not able to write how I wanted to write, so I stopped being afraid of what others will say. I stopped being afraid of how others will look at me.
I am not a follower of any man or woman, I just get inspired by their work ethic and I tell myself, I am just as capable as all of them. If they can do it, I can do it. In 20 or 30 years, my legs may not be under me, my eyes will not be able be as good, my brain may stop functioning and eventually, I may regret my life. That’s why, I’m more motivated to get my life to where it needs to be, rather than where others want me to be. Others are always trying to invest their own plans into you, so they live it through you, while they do nothing and you end up hating your life. Im done with all that. Im done hearing how others want me to do things, now it is my time. I may not have long to live but I know for a fact, that this is my life and I am a leader!
I know, I can help change the world and help change people’s lives because Allah Subhana wa t’ala, has blessed me with the ability to help others. I don’t care about a fancy car, I don’t care about lots of money, I don’t care about fame nor being celebrated or praised. I just want to help inspire people. Help change their lives. Help them understand that you are wasting away your life doing things you don’t really want to do. You are wasting away your life chasing money when it doesn’t bring true happiness. If you enjoy doing that, then by all means, you have the freedom to do so.
I only have one life, so Im going to live it to the best of my abilities and do as I please and do what makes me happy, while doing my best to follow the Qur’an & Sunnah. Im going to take risk and I’m prepared for whatever failures will come with it because that’s life. Nothing is going to be how you planned but how you learn from those failures and continue going will lead you to being successful in whatever it may be. There is no delaying something until next year or next month, there is only time for now because tomorrow is not promised. Each moment is a new moment for me and you to create something that wasn’t there before, by the permission of Allah Subhana wa t’ala. This is my life and I believe my purpose is to help inspire, motivate and change people’s lives. Not because there is something in it for me but because there is so much in you that you fail to see and I want to help you all see that.
