Life is about ups and downs, never moderate, never constant, because life was never meant to be perfect otherwise we would be immortal.
What doesn't kill you makes you... Happiness is a choice. We have the gift of free will and that applies to the choices we make about how life treats us. We cannot control what happens in our lives but we can control the outcome, we just need the little progress to get through that level of life, we just need...a Recharge
There is nothing as hard as writing about something that you
fall victim to every single day.

I believe we are all
accustomed to the movie franchise ‘007F’
(the letter ‘f’ is supposed to be the gun lol) and we all get some excitement
on the whole idea of travelling all over the world and taking out bad guys with
cool gadgets and sleek cars. The main theme of the movie usually involves first
class criminals who hatch sophisticated plans intended to bring the world to
its knees. That’s where Mr. Bond comes in, and no matter how south things go
for him, he always beats the odds and in the end saves the day, often in a
suit, classy. Now, keeping aside the fact that it’s a movie, let’s bend the
rules a little. Have you ever thought about how hard it would be to save the
world if Bond was in fact the criminal? With all his tools, gadgets, cars and
accent? It would be near to impossible, right?
Well believe it or not, I know a guy who’s got all those and
he is soo good at his job no one notices him slipping through the cracks. The
difference is, he doesn’t do ‘big jobs’. He deals with the small ones, the ones
that really matter. He is soo good you probably have no clue you are one of his
victims. Am going to tell you how before he finds me again and silences me. Am
not sure how long I have. All I know is that he is on to me so I’ll tell you
what I can.
At work when this new guy comes in and he/she is getting
almost double of what you get and the guy has zero experience while you’ve been
there for as long as you can remember and on top of that, Boss here wants you
to show him/her the ropes, how does that make you feel?
At school when you sit with friends and one of them points
out how that cloth makes you look fugly or when they circle how funny you are
and you don’t even get your own joke, what do you feel?
At home when sweet mum is fussing about how lazy and slow
you are and you never get things right while your siblings just can’t leave you
alone in peace…how’s your head?
These are just a few examples of what we go through in our
daily life, the norm. But as normal as they sound and are, they are awesome
ventures for this guy because they are his specialty, the small things. No
doubt a newbie at work getting the salary equivalent to two of you, a negative
criticism from friends, relatives accusing and blaming, no doubt it’ll hurt a
little, but as soon as it does, you become his next mission. He will use all
the assets he invested on you just to see you fall in despair. Evil I know, but
somehow everyone ends up missing it, missing him. As I put this ‘slippery
individual’ sign up, let me tell how.
You can’t treat a disease you don’t know you have.
Similarly, you won’t see him coming if you were not expecting him. To expect
him is to know that he is the one who pushes you to hate the socks out of that
newbie. He is the one that makes you feel small and rejected on that classroom
desk. He is the one that makes you want to chow down your siblings and act out
to your relatives because you feel they are being unfair…he is the one behind
all the pressure you feel when you are picking up a day’s outfit or the one you
going to wear on that wedding, even more so the pressure to the one throwing
one…the fear, rattling every bone in you to the thought of what aunty Aisha and
Co. are going to say about the food, the hall, the makeup, the wedding dresses
omg! And the number of activities its hosting, let us not forget that!
Expecting him is to know that he is the one who pumps your
ego to an EGO so that you don’t bother greeting that guy you see every day or
have a pleasant surprise to meet that long lost friend because it won’t look
cool and personally developed. He is the one who pushes you to pull back that
scarf so that that single bundle of hair meets those dreamy eyes or let your
jeans meet your shoes because they blend well. He is the one responsible for
making you say stuff about her to them so that they like you or build up a case
for someone using nothing but invisible evidence and your all wise and all
knowledgeable mind….He is the one that finely sculptures excuses so that you
have a reason to leave Compulsories or do what’s good and not what’s better
because good is still good. And the worst part of it all, he makes you believe
they were and are all from you and your thought and feeling… He is #Codename A-Shaytaan
a.k.a Iblis, the Devil, al-Diablo, Satan- The Destructive Patient One, among
many more, and he, my friend, is very and I mean Very good at his job. And the
history of mankind, our kind is proof of that.
My time is almost up and every second leaking this is a risky
load for me but a threat to him and his government.That’s a risk am willing to take. He has
eyes, ears and arms in every single place I turn to these days, even some of my
own are in his pocket. I mean I’ve been compiling this for the last three days
and it’s not because I’ve been busy or lack creativity. He is coming for me,
that is, if he isn’t already here
Not long ago I met a man. Not in person though I would die
if I could meet him some day in shaa Allah. It was reported that this man was
the only person Shaytaan failed to get. And the first person in that chain of
reporters was Shaytaan himself, so it’s pretty legit. They call him Muhammad
upon him be peace, and since that day, I have been striving to enumerate his
secret over Shaytaan. I have failed so many times I’ve lost count. But Muhammad
(SAW) told me to get back up every time I fell because the One who granted him
the knowledge against Shytaan, His Master, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, the Lord of the Worlds, Master of all
creation, the One rightful to be worshipped and no partner to be associated with
told me.. ME! Of all people to never give up on His cause…His Mercy…He is Allah
(SWT) and Muhammad (SAW) is His last and final messenger. Muhammad (Saw) told
me to call everyone I can to gain this knowledge and defeat the evil Shaytaan
because he soo deserves it. La3’na tullah aleyh -_-
So here I am, leaking this in a system run by Iblis himself,
hoping to reach out to anyone out there, listening, reading…I tell you to be
strong, be resilient, be divergent, resist his lures, fight him… I ask you to
join me in my quest inherited from the first vicegerents, I ask you to take
back control of your thought, your feeling, take back yourself…I ask you to not
let him define what’s cool and what’s not, what you should like and what you
shouldn’t, I ask you oh anyone, someone, to be a person of substance, of
firmness, of stability, of one who has personality and depth…I mean Muhammad
(saw) used to cry and people saw him, a leader of all mankind, crying in the
open…he wasn’t afraid of the people’s opinions because he knew who he was,
sheer personality, depth, meaning…won’t you want to follow such a man?
Knowledge is power. This is shaytaan’s playground. A good
friend once told me that we will never develop unless we realize the reality we
are in…the reality that we are at war with shaytaan. Now you know of him, so
Don’t let him fool you and bind your mind exclusive to now, don’t let him blind
you of the future because he will take any chance you give him and he will make
you pay, trust me, but never let him rule you. Know your worth. You are the
best of all creation, smart, intelligent and most importantly, you. And the
thing about being you is that, you are stronger.
