Determined By Allah’s Decree

No amount of guilt can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself, for the outcome of all affairs is determined by Allah’s decree.

If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from it you cannot flee.

Gladiator

Olivia: What would Olivia Pope say?

Abby: You don’t get run. You’re gladiator. Gladiators don’t run. They fight. They slay dragons. The wipe off the blood. They stitch up their wounds, and they live to fight another day. You don’t get to run. How was that?

Olivia: That was good.

Be A Fighter

I finally get to LA, graduate. I have a kid in collage and I have to pursue my dream because if I don’t, what am I teaching my son. So, I moved to California with $700 in my pocket and my toddler. 

And I have to fight the good fight because people are telling me I can’t. You can’t do this, you can’t. Are you crazy? You’re moving to California with your son? You’ll never make it.

I was 26 when I was decided to come here. There’s the age thing. Oh, you’re too old.

If you listen to people, and if you allow people to project their fears onto you. You wont live.

What if I believed those people who told me that when I became pregnant in college that I wouldn’t finish? I walked accross that stage with my son on my hip and I collected my degree, my diploma. 

I didn’t hear the naysayers when they were like, you’re too old to California. If you don’t hit by 25, you’re not going to make it. I will be 46 this year. I am just touching the surface. I am just getting started.

Don’t Settle For Less

You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering, what you are doing, where you are, who you are with, and if you are OK. You need someone who can help you reach your dreams and protect you from your fears. You need someone who will treat you with respect, love every part of you, especially your flaws. You should be with someone who could make you happy, really happy, dancing on air happy.
