The Chances

Posted on: November 7, 2014

There’s a recent event which made me think about chances. About chances that we never give to the people we know. To the people who might be the best thing in our life, if only we ever gave them a chance to be a part of it.

Sometimes, we shut people down in the first place. When the first impression becomes everything to us, we don’t give them a chance to show us how good they can be. We divide people to ‘yes’ and ‘no’ right in the first sight. We just don’t care about the fact that it takes times for people to show their true colors. It takes times for us to see their true colors.

Or maybe… we do give them a chance to be a part of our life. As our friends. As our favorite colleagues. BUT… we never give them a chance to be more of it. We keep trying to convince ourselves that it’s not worthy. That we don’t really want them to be more than who they already are to us. We keep making excuses while in fact, we’re just scared. We’re just scared of the risk that we need to take just to be with them. We just don’t care about the possibility that they may be the best thing that ever happens to our life.

This thought finally reminds me to the people whom I pushed away. The people who sincerely wanted me to be a part of their lives. The people whom I easily judged as the wrong ones. I just realized that some of them, a few years later, have proven me that I was wrong. I was wrong to be afraid just to be with them. I was wrong for telling myself not to fight for them, fight for their presence in my own future.

Life is made up of choices. Somehow I still believe, even the wrong choices happened for a reason. It’s the wrong choices which finally lead me to learn how to do it right. Hence I know that I shouldn’t be drowning in regrets. Hence I know that all I need to do is starting to do it right: I should learn how to give people a chance. I should understand that when I give people a chance, I give myself a chance to get the best possible things to come.

Have you ever heard a quote that says, “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.” And you will never know how good it can be unless you give it a try. It may work, it may never work, but one thing for sure… at the end of the day, you will only regret the chances that you never take.

Give people a chance, take chances, and see how different your life will ever be.

I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome! My life has been going great in the past one month. Incredibly busy, but I can’t be happier.
I work my new job during the weekdays and work on my own start-up all over the weekends. It’s tiring and consuming all my energies, but it never feels like a hard work somehow.
I meet many people who are super friendly, I get to work with new challenges that test me every single thing I’ve learned in my entire career, and at the same times, I still manage to pursue my lifetime dream! For the first time ever, I understand how it feels like to love what I do that I never have to work a day in my life.
God, thank YOU for all these blessings! I often said I couldn’t ask for more, yet again, You gave me more and more reasons to be thankful over and over. I’m beyond blessed! Alhamdulillah.
