Dancing at the Party of Life…

Have been keeping a pretty low profile this past while, not doing much at all. Busy with work, two hot events coming up. Hope they turn out well.

Obviously, I have experienced this in the past and admit to having had periods of woe is me. Unless you have had breathing issues it is hard to imagine how it does suck the energy out of you. It is almost like with each breath you aren’t getting quite enough air.

My attitude has changed over time. There is no sign of any “woe in me” anywhere. It has been replaced with a really profound sense of gratitude that I am in fact still breathing.

As i sit here I think of all the times in my past when I allowed the “woe is me” to take over my mind-set. Times when life wasn’t going my way. Thoughts like, “why did this have to happen” or “why did he/she have to do that”, “It is just not fair, why did this have to happen to me, woe is me”. I would mope, wallow around until some how things seemed to get back on track and again be going “MY” way and only then was I happy again. As I think about it really how selfish is that? Getting upset, sulking when you don’t get your way. It is sad when I think of all that wasted time. I read somewhere that time is like money in that you only get to spend it once. When it is gone it is gone. How wisely we spend it is up to us. huh, so much of mine wasn’t spent in the wisest way and that I do regret.

I can’t get back the time I wasted in the past but I can be sure I don’t waste anymore going forward.

There is another saying something to the effect: Life may not be the party we had hoped for but we might as well dance while we are here.  Huh, something just hit me and I actually got up and danced. Now since I am alone here at the moment I really laid down a few fancy steps and moves, let me tell you.lol. “Miqdad” dancing is a style of its own.lol. Give it a try, stand up right now and just let it loose, I dare you. OK, maybe don’t overdo it, my little dance has me huffing and puffing but it was worth it.


Why do I write this blog? One part of the reason is to I hope help others realize the priorities in life. To realize how truly wonderful life is. Of how we take so much of it for granted. I urge all to take a look at your own life; maybe certain parts are “upside down” right now. Don’t focus on the areas of life that aren’t going our way. Look at the big picture of your life; you will if you are honest see much to be grateful for. If your life is upside down and you just can’t see anything to be grateful for. I challenge you to look again, with this thought in mind. I am grateful for just being able to breathe. Would you like to trade places and then look back at your life as it is?

Don’t put criticism on what you read, I read a comment put forward by an English teacher, it wad though rude and meaningless. But still comments are always welcome. I personally thing you should extract good point on what you read neither putting up comments just for the heck of it.

Good Night 🙂

    As far as your blog is concern, life is the most beautiful gift given to us by God.We are one of those blessed ones.Yet, constant failures does make you despair.Thats the bitter reality !

  6. Jo Hart says:

    Thanks so much for your encouraging post

  7. Sabika Khan says:

    Hey Miq, how are you doing?
    death is fact that can’t be ignored, for it gives meaning to what we do in life. It is certain that life will come to an end, therefore, there are things that must be done, actions that need to be put in place. Goals that need to be achieved, before the referees whistle signals the end of the ball game.

  8. Ammar Haque says:

    You are right about all of us being in the process of dying, some just at a little faster pace than others and nothing can change that.

  9. Jamal Panwahar says:

    I love the idea of you getting up and doing a few fancy dance moves. Have you ever read/seen “Tuesdays with Morrie” – it’s well worth a look, and you seem to have a similar outlook. Every Blessing

    Yes a couple of years ago I came accross that book and I do think it is wonderful a must read for everyone.

  14. Sara siraj says:

  15. Martha Singh says:

    Thank you for that. A lot of my life is the wrong way up at the moment and it’s one of those situations where the solution is in the hands of others and the only thing I can control is how I react. It’s nothing big, the world’s not going to stop turning but I’ve been struggling and your recent posts have been keeping my feet on the ground nicely.
