Bucket List

Sunday, March 20, 2011

I have a hectic schedule these days. Day and night I've been working on my assignments, projects and FYP. I'm not really good at handling stress so in times I feel like I'm just plain stressed out.

But I keep telling myself, this too shall pass. I do have a lot of things in my mind about what should I do next. Besides, my final exams are just around the corner and I have yet to do any revision. Sigh.

I thought to myself, I wanted to prepare for my exams earlier than before but it seems like it's not gonna happen.

Somehow along my hectic weeks, I'm thinking about my self-made theory. I have a theory that you can't tell people if you want something to happen very badly. It's like the more you tell people, the lesser chances of that something to occur. The same case with wanting something so badly, it's like once you tell someone about the thing that you want, you're gonna notice that thing that you want is no longer in your circle of getting it. Get it?

Hmm..well it's just my own theory but it's proven to be true for some cases.

Right now, I do have a few lists of things that I want to have and I hope it will happen to me. Usually when I want something so badly, I restrain myself from telling other people. But somehow lately, I kinda violate my own rule and began to tell people about what I've been wanting. And now, I personally think that those things that I want will never happen to me. And I think I'm not gonna get it anyway. I know this theory sucks but I can't help myself. I'm falling for my own theory. Haha.

I do know that if you want something badly enough, you have to make it work, make it happen and not just relying on some stupid theory. If you're determined to get some things, eventually it will be yours. Hopefully.

I do believe that sometimes one simple mistake can lead to irreparable damage. Oh I hope I'm able to avoid such thing.

P/s: Dear Lord, help me to strengthen my patience to withstand the hardship and grant me the will to continue being strong.

Anas reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to supplicate, “O Allah, there is no ease except what You make easy, and you alone can turn a difficulty into ease.” (Ibn As-sinni)

"Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream."
