Monster

“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” ~Havelock Ellis

Whenever I plan to refurbish myself, steer my lifestyle in a new direction, I confront the ever-present fear of becoming a monster. I once became a monster. Over confidence took over due to lack of maturity and humility, yet after two years of learning and mending my mistakes, the dormant monster frightens me. I read in a saying of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) that a ‘The believer does not allow to be stung twice from one (and the same) hole” . And this comforted me. If I keep my faith alive, I will never repeat that mistake. I am going to let go of the mistake and hold on to the change I want to bring. Help me, God.

God help you all!
