Every day is a Challenge

Everyday is a challenge, I always remind people and my wife about that. I am constantly battling with challenges from work, family, personal and many others I face day by day.

The moment I wake up in the morning, perhaps some of you are deep in to sleep, (4:00AM!) I feel and always reminded by the challenges. Waking itself by the way is a challenge since it's just feel better to sleep specially that winter is coming. Me and my wife will then kneel and pray, as I hurriedly prepare myself and my dearest girlfriend diligently prepares my pack lunch and snacks. 

The moment I step out of the door, 4:50 AM is always a challenge. There are times I will be walking along the streets alone and it's dark, not many people are starting their work too early just like me. Walking for 10 minutes going to the highway where the bus will pick me up is also a challenge, you know some out of mind people might be interested to toy and play with this cute, small, and goodlooking guy. (nyehaha)

The moment you step in the bus, is another challenge. I have tremendous trust with our driver, but how about other drivers who haven't sleep or who went partying all night? Report says KSA was the highest car accident country in the world. If you live outside our cocoon, you won't understand. But if you worked or lived or been to here, you know what I mean. That one thing alone, driving here scares me that during my driving test, the tire on the drivers side touched the white line during parking. (whew! but I am not giving it, and I am going to go again this time till I get my Saudi driving license, back home, I drove and drove till my pick up truck went turtle know? Warning: Don't do this and don't experiment, believe me, you're not as elastic as I am.) Honestly, I run 120 Km/H and my driver's side tire exploded...

When I get to worked, the much harder challenges confront me. Being in charge of the quality of a thriving drinking water business is a challenge. 

When you get home, the moment you step in the door, you'll hear the baby laughs or mumble words or cries, that's another challenge. A toodler will take most of your time, you wont have that much time to post a blog, and your wife can't cook foods or clean the house, but perhaps it is a challenge that bears satisfaction and tremendous joy. Family.

Some of the greatest challenges we have in life are those about our families and those closest to us. David O. Mckay says, 'There is no success that can compensate for failure in the home.' Mitt Romney said "The greatest work you are doing, are the works done within the walls of your home." I believe those two quotes. That's why working for the betterment of our family, the strengthening of our commitment and love to one another, the building of a joyful place called home, and the rearing of children that someday they will become the strength to light on the seemingly dimming world. That is a huge challenge. Sometimes as a young father, it seems insormountable, sometimes, it seems impossible to achieve.

But the smile of a beautiful baby girl, is enough to wipe those fears and doubts and move on and be strong so that the baby girls future will be better. The love of a woman so lovely and kind and caring is enough to make me excited and be inspired, in battling those challenges. The best thing where we can draw strength is not the worldly status we achieve or the material wealth we acquired, but the love of those around us, our families, and friends.

Every challenges we overcome anyway, added strength and experienced to our life, thereby making us more brave and more better the next time.
