Being 'Young' at heart

| |

People must be wondering why I feel so 'young' at heart. Everyday, I am being surrounded by young people and make new friends, also with younger people. I never always had the chance to meet the 'older generation' except if I go back to my kampongs, either Johor (mine) or Kelantan (hubby's). I'm the 2nd oldest in my office..luckily they called me 'KAK' not 'MAK' otherwise I will feel old before I am really 'old' but I don't mind they called me 'IBU' as I feel honoured by that name.

Actually, I enjoyed making friends with the young generations. I love. to learn new things from them (they are supposed to learn from me, as a very senior and experienced person) but to be old doesn't mean you know everything. And it is interesting to 'venture' into the young world. Especially on certain things that I never had and experienced before. Young people nowadays, I should say, are very smart, dynamic, ambitious, adventurous blah..blah...blah...and they are quite lucky too. I did not possess those characters when I was young...and I missed so many opportunities. I want to make sure my children will not repeat my mistakes... lack of confidence. They must be brave enough to face the world which is full of challenges but very rewarding.

I was a victim of circumstances and was not given the chance to pursue my education to the highest level. My priority at that time was MARRIAGE not EDUCATION. But for my children, EDUCATION should come first. I want to make sure that all of them complete their education at the highest level first before they think of marriage. But, is that possible? Still 'Jodoh ditangan Tuhan'. However, that would be my greatest achievement in life (to see them successful in their life) besides seeking for Allah's blessings, mercy and forgiveness.

To my children, 'mak' will always be there for happiness and sadness
