Re-blog: 3,652 Days

In response to Kate’s Friday Fun for this week, I’m re-blogging an old post of mine I published exactly 3 years ago on January 20th, 2016.

That post was about spending a decade/10 years/3,652 days with my lovely wife Jia.

And since today marks our 13th wedding anniversary, I thought it would be great to read out all the thoughts I wrote 3 years ago about my life with Jia, what she means to me and the way she makes me feel.

You can read it also, along with me 🙂

That’s 10 years to be precise, including two leap years. And today, this number of 3,652 is very special for me.

Why?

Because 10 years ago today, which was January 20th 2006, I got married!!!!

Re-blog: You Just Can’t Stop Running

Because of last night’s late return home from a wedding event, I slept up late. Though I woke up on time in morning but somehow made myself late in leaving home for work.

Hence, I had to run a little to catch my bus, which was waiting for me at the stop, thankfully. That little running made me realized, after I sat in the bus and collected up broken breaths, that I can’t really run in real life also.

Despite being good at walking long distances, I can’t cover the same distance through running. Which is a definite sign for me that I’m now transitioning into not-that-young-lad-anymore era of my life.

And which is also reminding me today about this piece I wrote back in 2017 about running without any breaks.

Read it out!

running

Running out for so long

Sometime, I wish for a break

But there is no slowing down

Or even a pause sign ahead

Re-Blog: We Are So Fortunate!

Do you really need what the world is longing for?

Are you worthy enough to possess what many can only dream about?

It is good to ask such questions with our own selves from time to time. There are countless souls in this very world without the basic necessities of life, for whom every new day is like a grueling marathon with never-ending obstacles on its path.

I do feel highly blessed for not being one of them and for this, I say do thanks to THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH every day for providing me with not only what I didn’t asked for but also with what I honestly believe ain’t eligible for.

A gigantic blessings comparison I read today on Calm Kate’s blog, which struck my heart. You should read it too:

aroused

I have food in the fridge, clothes to wear and a sheltered safe place to live …
   so I am richer than 75% of our world

I have money in the bank and some in my purse with spare change around
   that puts me among the top 8% of the wealthy

I woke up this morning more healthy than sick …
   I am more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week

I have never experienced the horrors of war, the degradation of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of real starvation …
so I am well ahead of 500 million people in our world

I can pursue spiritual practice of my own choice without fear of arrest, torture or death; those that harass are ignorant …
   so I’m more blessed than three billion others!

I can…
