On My Feet Again…

TODAY is Friday. 26th August 2016.

As my trusty car inches along the heavily congested Jalan Tun Razak, my mind is everywhere wondering about everything.

Today I should celebrate another milestone in my life and yet I feel sad and down.

Which reminds me of quote from John Green…

“The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesn’t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will.”
— John Green

How true.

For the past several months isn’t this (to stand on my feet again) what I have been dreaming of. To be on my feet again. To start learning to stand tall and proud again.

Isn’t this what I have been telling myself over and over again. That Aza is making a comeback.

Apart from for my own happiness and satisfaction, this is for Adam too, so he will be proud of me. To show him no matter what life have thrown at you, how low have you fell, how battered your self-esteem and with no ounce of self-confidence left in you, you can always staggering to try to stand again and held your head high.

Remember Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne? Christopher Robin to said to Pooh: “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

That’s what I have been telling myself too… A
