Hard days, long nites

There are days when all the juice is sucked outta you and you find yourself with not much left to go on.   you dig deep, to the very depths of your innermost soul for that tiny little spark to light the furnace up again.

Its hard going but persevere you must bcos the only other option is to succumb to the cold.. the barren, empty landscape of a lost cause.

"Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us and grant us mercy.  Truly, You are the Bestower" - (Al Quran V 3:8)

His day

He was born 53 years ago in a place called temangan lama.

I was told by my mom we had a cat named temangan once, back in those early days when my dad was posted in pengkalan chepa. i was around 5.

Random or another one of life's coincidences?

Whatever it may be, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Golfman, may the years ahead be blessedly happy & healthy ones <3

Lets work it

I'm not an athlete, nor am i athletic but i've always had these weird dreams of running. you know how it is that sometimes you dream of endlessly falling, falling, falling from some great height and suddenly waking up midfall?  its the same except this time its running, running, running into the great horizon, sometimes fast sometimes in slow mo but always in constant motion. and i can still taste that lingering feeling of power & freedom when i wake up.

So maybe its just my subconcious telling me to break free of all that binds me. maybe i'm just being fanciful. but whatever it is, instead of speeding off into the sunset in a sleek powerful ferrari or cruising the super highways on a rumbling harley, its being in control of my own body that excites me enough to keep dreaming about.

Theres nothing more beautiful than rippling muscles set in motion. you see it in the lions & tigers while they're chasing their prey or the wild horses when they're galloping the fields. and even men when they're either bent on out running each other or out chasing their own demons lol.

I admit, i'll always take that extra second to check out the runner that i'm passing while i drive down that road.  its a subconcious reaction, a feeling of connection. heck i cant explain it well enough for it to come off other than being fanciful. but i think other people who seem to like pounding god's earth would understand lol.

In a world of uncertainty and chaos, its liberating to feel that at least we can be in control of our body.  its god's gift and its up to us to use it in the best possible way.

For me its running.. but theres walking, climbing, swimming, diving, dancing, whatever moves you.  just get out there and work it ;p

Have a good week ahead peeps!
