The title of this entry may not sound very inspiring or uplifting, but realising that life is not always easy makes me easier to deal with reality. Everyone has problems and even tragedies to deal with. For sure it is not easy to handle all those difficulties. However, it depends on how we handle and resolve the issue.
After going through all the troubles living in a foreign country I learned a lot about myself and became a stronger person. I learned to be patient and persevere to face all the challenges in front of me. Segala masalah yg timbul dalam menjalani kehidupan as a PhD student dan masalah2 sampingan dlm kehidupan di luar kampus menyedarkan saya bhwa tiada yg mudah selagi kita bergelar manusia. Wpun kdg2 saya rasa hampir2 mngalami kekalahan utk terus bjuang, tp berkat semangat dan doa from the loved ones, I was able to survive.
This is the real life. We are here on bumi Allah to grow. We are meant to become better student, wife, daughter, and sister; to become more disciplined, hard working, generous, patient, loving and caring. The more we grow, the more confident we get; the more we put into living, the more life we get. If we only do what is easy, how will we learn?"
Life is not always easy. And that is a major reason why it is so precious. If everything in life is easy, there would be no opportunity for real fulfillment.
