.: On creativity :.


Still there?

An article to complete. A couple of half-baked invoices waiting to be submitted. A handful of assignments I conveniently keep for another day. I should really start working on those items, yet I spent the entire afternoon designing our latest marketing materials.




Am I happy with these? 

Honestly?

Not quite. 

But these will have to do for now.

Friday is here again.

.: April :.


For there is no fool.

Going through the stuff at home feels like going on a journey into the unknown. You never know what you will find in one box or the other. Be it a bag, a book, or a broken piece of toy, each item is attached to a particular memory - a memory that you never thought still lingers in the depths of your soul. 

And through that memory... you are reminded.

Reminded of how things were. Of how things have changed since then. Of how things could have turned out, if you had taken a different approach. 

Things change, people change, even feelings change. But memories, memories remain constant. And they are capable of bringing you back to how you were, after drifting off for so long. 

Making amends.

A stroll.

.: Detaching realities :.


Minesweeper.

Ever felt like with every move you take, you are getting closer to stepping on a mine? One wrong move, and instantly, all your hard work gets blown apart.

Or do you feel that you are only moving closer to your goals? Of finally achieving all you have ever worked for. 

Strike a balance between the two extremes.

Entering February 2018.

.: Iqra:.


Read.




Have dealt with far too many who did not read, or make the effort to read thoroughly. Oftentimes I get tired, frustrated, with such people as they made things much difficult for me. 

Can't help but wonder, even after countless times of texting, emailing, the exact same thing, did they intentionally choose to not read it?

Were they having reading difficulties?

Or did they have a hard time comprehending things? 

Tried to give them the benefit of the doubt, think good thoughts, and letting it slide. 

But sometimes, it just gets too unbearable.

Read.

The first command that many fail to abide to. 

Choose to be kind and just read.

It will save your time and spare the sanity of others.

Undefeated.

.: Hello 2018 :.


Tick tock.

Just a few more hours to go before we enter the new year. In retrospect, loads of stuff happened throughout 2017. Started a new business, clinched a couple of long-term freelancing writing jobs, and secured a scholarship, Alhamdulillah.

The year also came with its fair share of unfavorable news, with my brother's death being the hardest. Until now, there are times when I still find it unreal. If you are reading this, please send a silent prayer for my brother, in hope that Allah places him in a better place and elevates his status as a better Muslim, ameen. 

What do I have in mind for 2018?

At this age, I hardly come up with new year resolutions. Suffice for me to say, let's strive to love a little more, care a little more, and be kind to one another. Above all, retain from bringing harm towards others. 

May 2018 be a blessed year for all.
