An Easy Life

January 19, 2015

What is an easy life?

When I was a kid, I thought life would be easy. As easy as go to school, study hard, get a good job with a good pay, save some money, meet a great guy, we get married, we will have a big house, we then have babies and we just continue living, happily.

As I grow older, it is just not what I imagined it to be. It got to a point where, I was actually disappointed with life. I thought nothing good will happen at all.

But has it occurred to us that the only reason we felt it was not easy is because we created the high expectations for ourselves? That we thought, it would require little effort to have an easy life? Whatever I listed above is not actually unattainable. It is possible if we are patient and willing to go through difficult times to get to our goal.

Last year was a pretty rough experience for me. I got out of the job which I really could not take. Something happened and I lost motivation to even sit in the office. I came home every night crying to my mum, fiancé or sister because of the stress. They all said the same thing: QUIT. It took me months, to be brave enough to give the letter of resignation. I was afraid of being jobless but I was literally going crazy.

After all those tough times I am finally where I want to be. Alhamdulillah.

My point is, life was never meant to be easy. 

It has to be difficult at times to toughen you up. And can you imagine how boring is a smooth-sailing life? No goals to chase because it is so straightforward to achieve them. You will not appreciate the good times because how do you differentiate the good and the bad if all that is happening is good?

You have to go through sweat and tears and maybe a little bit of blood to get to where you want to be. You will experience a blissful life for a while and before you know it, you will come rolling down the slope again. As cliché as it may sounds, life is a wave.

You can't stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.

I know it is not easy to change the way you look at life. Heck, I might even go back to being pessimistic right after this post but, we all have to try. Pass this entry to a family member or a friend and create a support system among yourselves. It will be easier because then you can remind each other from time to time. InsyaAllah.

Have a fantastic Monday, girls!
