43 ~ Greater schemes ~

*** This post was inspired by another fighter who posed a question inquiring:

What defines you?

Leaving aside illnesses.

I’ve joined the 2 – life prior to falling ill & after.

Absolutely nothing to boast about! Instead, a reminder to all fellow buddies that when chronic illness grips & takes over a major part of our lives..

Focus turns only onto health & treatments etc which has a first place undoubtedly.

Sometimes as the duration prolongs.. We tend to forget who we actually are.

We forget our identity & the fact that we still have capabilities by which we can continue contributing to society

There holds much more to us than inwardly debilitating riddling diseases..

Where we were before

Where we are now

Where will be in the future…

Are all a part of fates greater schemes

Beware โš 

For me the simple pleasure of laughter is a hazardous danger

An angina trigger

Also causes me to gasp for air, heart beating faster, blood pressure dropping lower, finally fainting to the floor

Situations of extreme excitement or anger are not in my favor

But the weight of these challenges will not make me a permanent moper ๐Ÿ˜”

They are growth providers

When the attitude of gratitude is a determining & driving factor.

Coerced into a souldier

Without a fully equipped team of drs I learnt to become my own savior

With the advice provided by senior figures

Who have become my medical guiders.

From every encounter i am aided to build higher.

Easier said than done, don’t care about the deserters

Never give up with the extended assistance of caregivers & supporters

Those rare & true souls who stick at our sides through thick & thin, are keeper’s

They care to recognize & gain an understanding of our conditions making these trials easier.

Oh Lord! Please shower upon them your choicest favors

For their selfless renders.

Become menders & lenders to one another’s shatters

Kindness amplifys the universe wider

An asset to the doer not only the reciever.

Stay far! Criticisers & judgers

We ain’t in need of unsolicited dictator’s.

My weapons are prayers

Effective hurdle killers ๐Ÿ”ซ

Don’t underestimate its power.

Amidst this combat there is no breather

But our inner core carries superpowers to continuing until whenever.

Lost near & dear loved ones? A seperation very bitter…

Let the tears stream in rivers

And rejoice knowing, In lofty heavens will we reunite again together.

Oh sad one! When the pain lingers deeper

Remember! It is a fleeting timer

Nothing remains forever

Besides majestic rewards in an eternal life yet to come, of which the mind cannot even wonder

Therein we will be pampered with unlimited measure

For this goal I desirously labour & pray to become a successful winner!!

A dreamer & striver to meet who should be my first lover prior to all others.

To him there is no matcher

May he accept my broken efforts & forgive my errors



Is my logo

Above the high & low tides that flow,

I shall row ๐Ÿšฃ

You may see me drown or sink during weak moments, but quitting?? No!

Leaving the past where it belongs, moving ahead, focusing on the present; always go.

Upon which shore shall I finally land? Not one of us know

Though, seeds of goodness and awareness i will continuously sow

Until the endmost…….

May our footsteps keep the earth aglow

    2. Jazakillah Khair so much for those kind words ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š don’t deserve them ๐Ÿ™ˆ Atiyah was & always is a unique blessing sent in my life. The moments spent with her are cherished always & forever. The blue printed card she gave me on the day of her graduation is stuck as a constant reminder every day… Memories of her are scattered everywhere. May the Almighty forgive my shortcomings to her as a student that was placed in my trust. Always in my thoughts & prayers.. old students are gold & her parents who worked with me making the journey easier are just as admirable.. May you all be taken from strength to strength. Lots of love & prayers ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’–
