Learning Curve of Life
While the saying “Life is too short to do something you don’t enjoy” is true I personally would like to put my own Islamic and afterlife spin on those wise words.
Thankfully I was fortunate enough to be raised Muslim and it was ingrained in me at an early age how temporary this life is. Not to sound downtrodden but I truly believe that a more appropriate saying is that “life is too short to do something that won’t help you in the next life”.
There are numerous ayahs in the Quran stating how regretful mankind is going to feel about how they spent their time on earth. Personally, I don’t want to feel that way, although we all know that’s impossible given that their have definitely been times when I have acted in a manner I’m not entirely proud of. Like the saying goes “Theirs no use crying over split milk” I can’t do anything about those times the only thing I can do is make sure I learn from my mistakes. Which I realize is incredibly clique, but for all the times I have messed up it would be optimistic of me to say that I’m batting .300 when it comes to learning my lesson.
However, by no means do I plan on giving up I mean after all if a professional baseball players chances of getting a hit were that good he’s probably a sure fire hall of famer. No matter how many times I might regret my actions in this life I have to try and raise my batting average and conquer the learning curve of life.
