People often say that life is not always a bed of roses. Yet they also say that we need to live life to the fullest. Life and challenges go hand in hand no matter you like it or not. We just have to be prepared mentally, psychologically, emotionally and even physically to face them. Challenges, no matter the size or form, can hurt us if we make one slightest wrong move. Yet again, what is life without challenges? Would you even call it life if you have never confronted any challenges? No matter how far or how fast you run away from life challenges, you can never outrun them. Escapism may sound appealing on the outer level but it is not strong enough to clean the mess. May be, sometimes, you have to stop running away but to confront the challenges. Why? Because the more you run away from them, the harder they'll treat you and perhaps, the harder you'll fall. Therefore, you may opt to continue running away from them or you may confront them with courage or even embrace them with an open mind. Challenges can either turn you weak or make you become stronger depending on how you deal with them. You see...challenges are what give meanings to your life. To confront them, your wits and inner strength will be put to test, thus, making you creative if looked at from a positive angle. So let's gather our strength and live up to the challenges that life has to offer. Don't be a coward because this world has no room for cowards. So challenges, come and challenge me! I know that Allah is always by my side. Salam Maal Hijrah to all.
