In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.
I remember giving up on my pursuit of a passionate romance and I remember specifically choosing to pursue my passion for music.
It was the best decision of my life.
That decision led to marriage and an evolvement of my music career of sorts, as well as meeting people I get to keep as friends.
Learning to let go is just as important as learning to hold on. I have been blessed both ways. It has made me a wiser adult.
Another thing I found out about adulting is the importance of boundaries. Setting boundaries is not easy. Keeping to boundaries is harder. Recently, I have just been scolded by my husband for my loose lips. I don’t want to be scolded again! XD
I’m very happy now. But I’m still harbouring some resentment and anger towards women who have/had it easier but still choosing to be a complete ass to their husbands/partners.
In the end it’s all about boundaries and choices.
I rewatched Moulin Rouge on Netflix recently. I’m still a hopeless romantic at heart. Really enjoyed the flick.
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
Had to wait a good two decades or so just to be loved in return.
It feels good to love and be loved.
By my husband.
And by music.
Do not underestimate the power of love. It gives you belief.
I used to hate my voice, envying the voices we all hear on the airwaves. I always thought that a voice is only nice if it’s high-pitched.
But now I know, believing that, is like believing a body is only nice if it’s slender.
So I now believe in my voice and I’ve fallen in love with it.
Nothing quite like a stranger complimenting your voice. Because it’s frank when done on the spur of the moment. Nothing calculated.
I’m going to keep working on my craft and just be better each time.
Speaking of which, my husband helped me to put together my intro song idea for my YouTube videos. Have a listen on my Instagram. We used effect because we think it’s cool for an intro!
I actually asked my followers to vote and they preferred this idea to another intro idea I had called “Airhead”. But one day I’ll get my husband to help me craft it. I believe in its potential!
I finally got to knock off work earlier than usual. Looks like I’ll have time to start on my coriander!
Shike told me that it’ll be rather challenging. I barely managed to scrape a 7/10 for my previous micro broccoli harvest. So now I’m really nervous for coriander. If I can successfully scrape another 7/10 in rating, I will be happy with being consistent at least. You can watch my Planting Broccoli IGTV episodes on my Instagram as well.
My calendar is getting fuller and my work responsibilities are increasing as well. Believe me, I don’t know how I end up being this busy and it’s crazy. What’s crazier is that I know I’ll be busier. Goodness.
Taking a step back, I can’t help but feel mystified by my recent interest in microgreens. I never knew I could grow stuff. Never knew I had it in me.
I think I’m really turning out to be a jack of all trades and master of none. But it’s not so bad to me. I think that’s why I lead a colourful life and I get to explore more. Therefore, I’m forever busy.
And I’m forever thankful to Allah for letting me lead this very challenging yet beautiful life.
And Allah is Al-Mu’akhir, The Delayer. – MM
