Alhamdulillah, I like myself


As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend ...

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love .. I will.

I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car?

But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.

So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore .... I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free.

I like the person I have become.

I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it)..

Wow! BIRTHDAY SALE. Unta for sale! Unta for sale!

when you getting older, should you become wiser, man of the wisdom, not the man of the papa-doom or porn-doom.

Alhamdulillah, just make sure you don't end up like Anwar the Sex Maniac as you get older.

My young lady at home said just that with a wide cheeky grin, to me last week "MAK,I REALLY TRULY LOVE MYSELF!".

Initially that sent chills down my spine, rasa aneh, but I did some research and blogged a nice video on "GIRLS BRAINS"... so, her 'I love myself outburst' is acceptable.

Alhamdulillah, your "I like myself", biasanya the same feelings will be extended to those around you..

Cheers

Hepi besday Hussin.

kluangman berkata...

1. Ulang tahun bila sampai menjadi keharusan untuk dirayakan dianggap sebuah bid’ah. Sebab Rasulullah SAW belum pernah memerintahkannya, bahkan meski sekedar mengisyaratkannya pun tidak pernah. Sehingga bila seorang muslim sampai merasa bahwa perayaan hari ulang tahun itu sebagai sebuah kewajiban, masuklah dia dalam kategori pembuat bid’ah.

2. Ulang tahun adalah produk Barat/ non muslim

3. Apapun apabila kita mengikutnya biarlah dalam suasana dan semangat yang positif.

4. Mungkin jawabannya yang paling jujur adalah…istafti qalbak….
Mintalah fatwa kepada hati nuranimu…

Odd that you say freedom comes with aging. But generally it is true. When younger we seem to be groomed to be less realistic, thinking everything is possible.

But many even when old do not see the limited freedoms we have to be operate within.
