Qutting is just not an option!

My ex-housemate back when I was an undergrad once told me that I am a very strong person. Last year when we had a chance to chat through Yahoo Messenger she said the same thing to me. This time with an additional attribute which I consider a positive one- I am an OPTIMIST. Honestly, I don't realize that I'm an optimist. I just know that in life we have to move forward, there's no use clinging to some old memories which will only stops us from being a better person.

Ani, a close friend of mine also told me that I am such a strong person. Not that I don't realize I am a strong person but having someone told it to me makes it more real I suppose. I just feel that I have to be strong for my own good. Surely, I have many times reached the I-have-had-enough points in my life but somehow I can't just quit. I just don't know how to quit.

Of course, I have my share of wanting to quit. Especially during the journey of completing my masters degree. Somehow I keep fighting and suppressed the thought of quitting. I don't know how did I find the strength to keep going but I do know that as Muslim, I have Allah as my source of strength.

Now when I look back at those path of my life i.e the I-have-had -enough paths, some of it started to make sense.

I understand now that if I did quit in the middle of a journey, I'll never know what I might find at the end of the road.

I understand now that being an optimist helps carry me through bad times.
~I just can't see the advantage of being a pessimist. If there's a whole lot of them, I might convert into one.. hahaha~

I understand now that an early childhood hardship experience does help me become a strong person.

I might trip, I might fall, I might get bruised all over going through this journey but one thing I know is that I have to keep fighting and never quit.
