As life goes on

 by Jahirah Jalal Abidin

ONE When my life is over, and my jobs are done.
I know there is a place for me, behind the shining sun.
I'll float across the midnight sky, and dance around a star,
yet stay so close beside you, "I haven't traveled far."
I've lost the shell I lived in, yet still remain the same,
every moment passing, a loving strength I gain.
Like a new born baby, fresh and bright and new,
yet every ounce of knowledge, I've taken with me too!
I stand beside you strongly, each and every day,
watching you, guiding you, in a different way.
Just because I'm out of sight, does not mean I'm gone,
we never see the wind that blows and yet we hear his song. 

TWO Life is so precious
And each day a gift
So enjoy every minute
As it were you last to live

Cherish your loved ones
Hug them tight
Share with them your heart
And your time
Nothing is forever
And life goes so fast
Each minute that passes
Is one you can’t get back
When troubles arriveAnd knock you off your feet
Stand up and smile
And remember life is too sweet

Every morning when you wake,
Decide right from the start,
That “Today will be a good day”
And let it all in with an open heart

The Iron Lady

The Iron Lady

I am a woman, a daughter, a teacher and a student; and I am writing this on behalf of all women in the world. It's apparent that the world is not complete without influential women leaders. However, some recent statistics shown that, there are still very few women in leadership positions as compared to men .Of the one hundred and ninety three countries recognized by the United Nations, twelve have a female head of government (Prime Minister, Chancellor or President) and thirteen have a female head of state.

In business leadership, reports have shown that  women have made considerable progress at middle management level, the statistics for the top management level leave much to be desired. Evidently, women are still very much the minority in positions of power. Why is this so? What is the significance between leadership and gender? Leadership is the capacity of organization, motivation, and guidance to achieve a given objective. To be a good leader one must gain the confidence of others.

Today, almost half a century since the modern women's movement began, many people assume that the issue of gender inequality and imbalance has been predominantly resolved. Although women's lifestyle in most countries, they have plateau in rights, leadership, and the ability to contribute equally in social and cultural affairs. To put it simply, discrimination against women is, unfortunately, not a thing of the past. Challenges specific to women such as the gender pay gap are forever more in the workplace. According to the latest report published by the European Commission, European women are earning 16 % less than European . The lack of female role models and mentoring opportunities, slimmer chances of promotion as well as the risks of sexual harassment are the other challenges that women face in the workplace. With so many odds stacked against them, it is no wonder that women have remained hugely underrepresented at positions of power. However, governments and current leaders have the ability to rectify the situation by addressing these issues and taking the necessary actions.

One way of encouraging women's leadership is by promoting women who are already very well respected with the current workforce. These women could serve as role models and inspirations to the women by sending the message tattoos possible for women to be leaders, thus building on a growing trend of women leaders. Additionally, governments could change how certain rules are enforced to better fight .Problems like sexual harassment and gender inequality, which can deter women from pursuing a career and thus effectively lowering the chances of women in leadership roles.

Today, we have lines of women who fill in the gap and the seats in the parliament . That’s really prove woman is not a subject to be discriminate and possess a strong will power take could take charge in any aspect of the organization. To conclude, iron lady is not their surface of their act in flamboyant and softness, we should see them as the next incoming leaders who speak for the rights and claims. We have to see leaders in a whole package not in terms of gender.

Rejected? You Won.. He Lost..

Rejection is one of our greatest fears, a fear that can have a very damaging impact on us. When dealing with dating matters, rejection is a subject never very far away. Being rejected by someone makes us feel small, worthless, insecure and unwanted. We lose our self confidence and want to crawl into our shell until we feel strong again. We may do something outrageous instead, something on the rebound to exact some from of revenge. But no matter how we react, no matter who we are, the fact is being rejected hurts.

Most people like being loved and like being popular. It makes us feel good about ourselves. We sometimes meet grumpy people who say that they don't care what others think of them, and while there maybe be one or two who do think that way, most of us want to be liked. So the way we handle rejection can be very complex. It is dependent on many factors, including our personality, childhood and earliest relationships.

Rejection comes in many forms. It could be a huge blow, like a partner being unfaithful to a loved one moving out and calling off a relationship for good. Rejection may come in the smallest of ways, from someone forgetting about an important occasions to a partner who simply falls out of love. Rejection can be a date who doesn't show up or a date who says that they don't want to take things further. But whatever the scenario, if you are on the receiving end of rejection, you need to keep things in perspective by looking at the bigger picture and focusing on the many positive aspects of your life.

The way we handle rejection is important in helping us keep our self esteem and dignity. When we are rejected, we often want to go crazy and blame ourselves for being rejected. But the reality is that it's usually the other person's problem, not ours. When we are rejected we may try to forgive and forget and make excuses for the person rejecting us. If we do that we are not helping ourselves. The best thing we can do is to face reality and move on.

Being rejected hurts. The person you entrusted with your hopes, desires and feelings has turned round and said that they don't want to be involved with you. When this happens you immediately move into blame mode. It must be, in some way or another, your fault for being rejected. Maybe it's the way you look, your shape or height, your hair or lack of it. Maybe the way you acted, the things you said or the things you did that caused the rejection. You wonder yourself is there was anything you could have done to prevent it. These are all natural questions we ask ourselves in the rejection process. But we shouldn't dwell on them.

The fear of rejection is a debilitating issue. It stops us from making the next. It stops us from approaching another person we really like. If rejection is the curse, confidence is the cure. The way to fix rejection is to balance it with confidence by investing in fun activities and positive thinking. If you feel good about yourself, you'll be able to recognize the great truths about yourself too. Maybe you are good at your job, you're organized, well dressed or in shape. You don't need to worry about what other people think about you to be happy with yourself. Then, if a date doesn't go well or someone simply doesn't like you, you can embrace that it's impossible to please everyone all the time. The more confident you are, the better you will be able to cope with most forms of rejection.

It is beyond the scope of this brief article to suggest ways of dealing with the feelings of rejection from the failure of a marriage or long-term relationship, from infidelity or major domestic drama. But what is true in most cases is that when we are rejected, we will come back stronger than ever in the end. Rejection in many instances moves us into a time of reflection and thought, of new perspectives and inner learning. It is a useful process because it also allows us to learn about ourselves.

The thing that annoys me most of all about rejection is the lack of honesty in people. When someone doesn't like you they should say so. When they don't intend to see you again they should say that. If they are not going to call then they should admit it. There is nothing more refreshing on a single date than someone being honest and saying that they would prefer to leave it there. When we are lied to, the feeling of rejection is compounded.

Another interesting facet of rejection is that there are people out there who will try to reject you so they themselves are not rejected. It's a kind of defense mechanism. If they feel they are not doing too well, they will dump you, before you may possibly dump them. I know some people who have told me that they have never been rejected or dumped because they always do it first. So keep that in mind if someone rejects you.

I don't have all the quick answers to this complex topic. But I will say that if you learn about yourself, get to know your strengths and acknowledge your weaknesses, things will be much easier. Stay open, realistic, maintain your sense of humor, be confident and rejection will wash over you when it happens. Looking back on my life, if I were to imagine myself with most of the people who have rejected me, I wouldn't be happy. That is because they were never right for me in the first place.

Im Reading...

OO its holiday and I went for a picnic n had an Ikan Bakar feast as my first STOP for this semester HOLS… More place to hit after this.. InsyAAllah =D..I bought this book using the BAUCHer Buku Satu Malaysia.. haihh 2 Months ago went pass.. I bought it but never had a chance to glance it.. Ok here .. Ive read a few pages…

The Writer…Graham E. Fuller proposes to tell the reader how different, or not, the world would be if Islam never existed. I was anxious to start reading. I was curious to see what a world without Islam would be like. The author fails to truly answer his own question thoroughly, but generally he thinks the world would be no different at all. How can that be?

The answer seems to be clear to Mr. Fuller: The cause of violence in the world is the fault of religious incarnations of Christians and Jews, the West, and more recently the United States of America and George W. Bush. That may be boiling down Mr. Fuller's book a little too much. I actually agree with one or two of his suggestions as to what must take place in the future. Let me explain.

In the Introduction to the book, Mr. Fuller mentions the Muslim struggle against colonial power and explains in brief to the reader what the body of the book contains and tells the reader that policies and perspectives must change sharply if we are ever going to get out of the present morass that has been so costly to everyone. This is an extraordinary writing which will guide and fill in the blanks of people with ambiguous and scepticism mind about ISLAM… Oh OK..  Go and ge it now! =D
