Penakut maybe one of the best way

Maybe I expected too much this year...too much and definitely I just can't handle it any longer. For this upcoming  2012 I have no expectation at all. Well it is good option for me so far and for my point of view no body will be hurt by living the life as it is...Everyday is an exiting and adventure as my father had told me one day. So, for 2012 no plans for me so far and nothing to reach. Living the life as it is and just wait for surprise and the magic.

Now I'm listening to Penakut and Gadis Semasa by Yuna Zarai.

Penakut - I should be that. Things had happen recently. I turn around and wonder if I hold on to my standpoint, maybe thing will be in another way around. I should have foreseen things and say NO from the beginning because I already know it was very unfair.

Ini tidak adil tidak adil baginya, 
Ini tidak adil tidak adil bagiku, 
Ini tidak adil, 
Untuk engkau bertanya jika ku mencintaimu juga, 
Tidak adil tidak adil baginya

But I was there willing to try my very best, willing to take my chances and abandoning the standpoint. Yes now I have to pay the cost for the things that I have done.

Tak semua kau rancang akan berlaku,
Mungkin nasib tak menyebelahi aku, 
Entah mengapa engkau yang aku cinta, 
Mungkin lebih baik kau ku lepas saja

While writing this post and at the same time listening to the song, I am smiling and thinking how funny I was. Willing to accept things although I do not like it. Willing to compromise, forgive and being tolerate as Zaidiana said. Try too hard to complement others makes people said you are being hypocrite in some ways. Thank you for the experience, time and effort.

If anyone ask, "Dear, are you happy for what you have?". My answer is, "Yes, I am happy and I need to be happy and I will try my best to be happy". Once more I wanted to held my head up high and it is only an unfortunate event that I have been passed through.

New Time Line

It is time to forgive and forget
Let's create new path and forget the past
Deeply sorry for all the mistakes
The things that have been said and done
My past will be my future references
Setting new goals and gripping the past goals
To be independent and having own palace where I'll call home
Wish to be here, Wish to be there
May everyone will be happy with this new time line

When I was in Form 2, an English teacher asked not to forget to do my homework. The I simply answered to him, " InsyaAllah teacher, I will finish it at home today." Then with a frowning face he asked, " Why do Malays always says InsyaAllah? It is just because most of the time when students answered with InsyaAllah, they really didn't meant it. It is a promise right, just like 'yes, I will do it'? I do sometimes feels that they just playing with the word". Then after that I was speechless and just smiled at him an said, " I'm afraid so sir that InsyaAllah should be a promise".

I really think deeply about it and after a while I didn't said InsyaAllah just as simple as everyone else. My answer is always 'I will do it' or 'I will try my best'. And to be frankly, I also did not believe much in promises with the one with InsyaAllah in the end on the line.

A few days earlier, while reciting the Quran, then I saw few verse saying about IsyaAllah and why we need to say it. Alhamdulillah, I finally found the answer that I have been searching for a long time.

Surah Al-Kahf, Verse: 23-24,

وَلَا تَقُولَنَّ لِشَيْءٍ إِنِّي فَاعِلٌ ذَٰلِكَ غَدًا 
  • Verse 23 : And never say of anything, "Indeed, I will do that tomorrow,"

إِلَّا أَنْ يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَاذْكُرْ رَبَّكَ إِذَا نَسِيتَ وَقُلْ عَسَىٰ أَنْ يَهْدِيَنِ رَبِّي لِأَقْرَبَ مِنْ هَٰذَا رَشَدًا
  • Verse 24 : Except [when adding], "InsyaAllah (If Allah wills)." And remember your Lord when you forget [it] and say, "Perhaps my Lord will guide me to what is nearer than this to right conduct."

According to riwayat, few Quraishy have asked Rasulullah about soul (roh), the story of Ashabul Kahf and Zulkarnain, then Rasulullah said, "Come to me tomorrow and I will tell you the story" and he didn't say InsyaAllah (If Allah wills). But until the upcoming morning, the wahyu about the matters was late and Rasulullah cannot answered them. Hence, came upon us ayat 23-24, as a lesson to Rasulullah; Allah reminds Rasulullah when he forgets to say InsyaAllah which has to be said immediately afterwards. 

Lesson learned, do not forget to say InsyaAllah or if Allah wills but never take it for granted because when you promise to do something, you have to do it or else people will disbelieve in you. Same goes if you promise to yourself. Maybe things that you promise only you and Allah knows, but what if you did not accomplish the promises? Well, that's the thing only you and Allah knows best. This is just a reminder for me and you in case forgotten...Well, I did forget for a while then......InsyaAllah not in the future.
