I Ramble: 4 May 2021

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

May the Fourth be with you.

Sorry, I had to get it out of my system! Hahaha!

I came across a video of a girl — who after seeing a video of another girl doing daily self-affirmations — did the same.

It got me thinking about how little confidence girls nowadays have. At first I thought it was silly and I didn’t need to do that because I’m a strong independent woman.

But then I realised that even strong women need to be emotionally assured. We need the affirmation that keeps us going. Like running on a fuel. There is only so much fuel we can generate for ourselves sometimes. So it really helps when others contribute to our fuel tank. Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky to have that. In the end, we only have ourselves.

I’m not going to do self-affirmation on a daily basis. But whenever I decide to do it, I’m going to think of a self-improvement point as well. At a glance, you might think it’s contradicting. But my intention is to use my self-affirmation as a springboard and my self-improvement point as a goal. Rinse and repeat.

Right now, I can’t think of anything because I’m not exactly in the best of head and heart spaces. Which ironically makes the best time to do so. I’m going to give it some thought before I share on my FaceBook Story.

It’s okay. I’m Huda and I always get my shit together.

Right?

And Allah is Ar-Rahman, The Most Gracious. – MM

P.S.

To: God

No matter how long it takes, I am going to remember all 99 names of You. Because You are the only one who can really love me in my best and worst.
