Alhamdulillah, yesterday I arrived safely at KLIA after an 8-hour flight from Jeddah. Performing umrah was an enlightening experience. I posted most of it on Instagram. Exploration and experiences are ten thousand times better than material items.
I also realised yesterday evening, the extent of how much I’ve been toning myself down over the past two years. It’s too complicated and too complex to explain, but that doesn’t make it any less true. Sometimes I shake my head at my excess of supposed superficiality. Too often I didn’t have the guts to say no to status quo.
This year I want to break free of my bonds and shackles. I want to read and write and seek knowledge and wake up early and participate and eat healthily and have good company and not spend so much time with electronics and accumulate street smarts and unleash my creativity and run a successful business and gather courage to speak out and and dare to be different. I will think outside of the box and step out of my comfort zone and please Allah s.w.t.
If I toned myself down before this, in 2015 I will tone myself up.
