No More Off Days, Only Off-Duty Times; I Ramble: 21 September 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

My body is being forced to go through a tough adaptive period in meeting the demands of two workforces while being in a state of menstruation.

I do not think any man can bear this. Hahaha! I have the standard menstrual symptoms yet I am still trying to power through a lot of tasks at one time.

I am telling you right now, I am struggling so badly now.

But I discovered one thing about myself today.

The more difficult things get, the more I push myself to overcome them.

Like having to crack my head in creating online content. Like forcing myself not to stop running as I go up a steep inclined path.

I think my mum’s assessment of me is very apt: I enjoy challenges. And this is very dichotomic because I am a big old lazy bum.

I really have to give myself a pat on my back.

I hope I can assimilate to this new lifestyle of no off days. It will definitely push me to make better use of my time.

It is as though I have been dead for a while and now, I am truly alive.

And Allah is Al-Muhyee, The Giver of Life. – MM
