“I’ve been married for 34 years and not fortunate to have a child. Over time, my husband and I accepted the fact that it’s going to be just the two of us. Rather than feeling not blessed, I took it as an opportunity to dedicate more of my energy to the works for Allah, spend more time traveling with my beloved husband and hone the gift of creativity which God has given me. If you feel not blessed, look around you…Your problem might not even half of what others are going through. We sometimes complain of having so little, while others have nothing at all. Pray for the unfortunate and give gratitude to the Almighty for the things He has given you. At the end of the day, it’s all about having a good heart.”

  5. Words of the wise. Whether or not one is religious, the words that she expresses are enough to keep going. I see too many narcissists gracing my mind, and honestly although many would try to rebuke such claims, I do believe that their source of self pity is due to the lack of faith. The faith could be in one’s self or in a deity but in the end our minutes on this earth are non refundable, so it’s best to spend our money with our heads high.

    1. Right, dropping the subject of religion, this is all about perspective. I visited the biggest mosque in Malaysia and met her, we had a good conversation and she’s really inspiring. πŸ™‚
