Today is a special day. 11-11-11 – it only comes once in 100 years. It also has a lot of deep spiritual meaning. I wrote some about my experience with 1111 in a book titled 1111 that will be launched today on NulisBuku.com 1st Birthday Party.
I really wanted to post a special blog post for today. Since the date number will create a great URL link hehe. And I decide to write about 11 things I am grateful for (apart from the obvious: complete body parts, oxygen and all), and here they are:
I’ve been very busy in the past year. Always come home late, around 11pm. Attend meetings. Going out of town a lot. And many other activities regarding my job. But I never get sick. That’s amazing. Alhamdulillah! I never really had vitamins because I can’t swallow tablets :p I never do sport, I hate it. I don’t eat vegetables, I don’t like it that much. So, my health completely come out of God’s mercy. Met a friend yesterday, he said in the most plain tone: “You’re always healthy because you have a kind heart.” -awww… thanks :p
- My Family
I am grateful to have them. I don’t understand people who take their family for granted. I know people said, “I’m working hard for my family.” – Yes, but your family also need you(r time)! In fact, when you’re sick and down, your job/career/money can’t be in your bed side and comfort you. Right?
- My Best Friends
I have a lot of friends that I am grateful for too, but my best friends are the one who understand me. With them, I can talk (or not talking) about everything. They will always there for me.
- I’m Doing what I Love
I love everything I do. From writing, business in books, etc, I don’t feel like working at all. Everyday is flexible playing time.
- I can Share More
God give me more love and it’s overflowing the people or children who needed it the most. God give me more power so I can do better for my community. God give me more money so I can give back & empower others. God give me more knowledge so I can share. Alhamdulillah!
- A Comfortable Life
I have all that I need. And I live my life comfortably. I don’t have debts. I can buy what I want, when I want it; all enough for me. Masha Allah, God is Great!
- Amazing Partners
Me & my partners, we found each other. And I am thankful that they’re just as passionate in doing what we’re doing, they’ve been aware to all my activities, cover me when I am not around, support me when I needed the most, understand me in the most difficult time of my life, and I couldn’t ask for more!
- Being a Mechanical Right
This is a new term that I introduced a while ago on TwitTalk Ebook that wrote about my profile. God has given us right and left brain. And I use them both in balance. That means, I wrote creative books (very right brain), but I finished it in mechanical (left brain) way: in strict deadlines. Not everybody agree with the concept, but it works for me and I can get things done.
I can’t imagine not having one. Well, I know I was born in a non internet era *cough* but, I just can’t imagine not having… Google… Blogs… Twitter… Facebook… life going to be incomplete! *drama*
A life-changing gadget. If you don’t have it yet, you should. I work more effectively and also enjoying my hobby (taking pic of myself hehe) with this thing. It can do more things that you can’t imagine before. You should get one!
- My Saviours
God send them. They’re the one who out of nowhere come to help me cope with my life. They can be a complete stranger on the street, new best friends, romantic life companion, can be anyone that put there to specificly helps me thru the most difficult times. I thank God and thank you for being in my life.
That’s the 11 things I am grateful for. What’s yours? Leave me your link in the comment box, I’ll check ’em!
Have a blessed & happy Friday!
