Iman Mutlaq | My Self

The moment you stop accepting challenges is the moment you stop moving forward



I’m a big believer that life is a beautiful journey with all its obstacles and challenges, its beauty and ugliness, and its good and bad times. We are shaped through all the ups and downs we encounter in life, and which have made us the way we are now.

Nothing comes with ease in life, you must work and sacrifice to succeed. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. In order to heal the pain, you first need to acknowledge it, and then overcome it. Scars are what we are made of. I also believe that everything in life happens for a reason. No matter how horrible, painful, or unfair it may be, I will always be thankful that it had occurred, because every single situation can open our eyes to things we weren’t paying much attention to before. With a little bit of attention, we can learn something new EVERYDAY. Living through various experiences in life, allows us to grow, as well as heightens our awareness. The more we know, the more awareness we have, the more empathy we possess towards others.
