Let me put it into English

English is a funny language; that explains why we park our car on the driveway and drive our car on the parkway. ~Author Unknown

Yeah, I know it, English becomes an international language, and in some cases it saved me from another language that I don’t really know. Honestly, long time ago, when I was a little younger, there was a question that pops out of my head, “why must it be English? Becomes language used throughout the world” A random thought comes from a desperate kid who knows a little about that language. A minute later, an answer floated, danced around my head and it said, ”Hey kid, actually that’s not kind of yours, but I think I know, that kingdom had colony all over the world once, and now they call it the Commonwealths". Even though, many countries that had ever been colonized by England have their independence now, the language and culture keep remains.

 “Commonwealth is association of the United Kingdom with States that were previously part of the British Empire” [Oxford dictionary] 

Well, right now, I need to confess that I’m not really good at English and it bothers me somehow. I’ve read some blogs of my friends that they often use English in their posts. I do believe that they’re really skillful and with humbleness they said that if any errors in their English just correct them, and it’s important for them. None of us are perfect, just they who study and learn from their mistakes will be able to pursue perfection. Yap, I’ve found the main difference between them and me, it is all about the courage to try it, not to be afraid of mistakes, and accept suggestions from others. We need to ignore a little of our ego, and accept that we need feedback from others.

 “You will not achieve anything, without courage to begin first.” 

So, let me put it into English, my post in blog or essay or anything else. I want to learn, I want to see how vast the world is, and firstly, I need first key to access them, a language that people use. How we expect to change this world, yet our efforts can touch the world. So far, I have only one post written in English in this blog (besides this post), and I hope it can be increased later. :)

“And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah: and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.” [qs. 62:10]
