“Surround yourself with only people who lift you higher.” – Oprah Winfrey
I can’t help but wonder how life would have turned out differently if He had not led me to S.uperCamp and caused my life to change so drastically. I went into it at one of the lowest points of my life and emerged a stronger and better person.
For so long, I doubted my value and goodness as a person. Being given the opportunity and choice to consciously choose to value and recognise my own worth, to be acknowledged and thanked by others, has been an invaluable experience that have shaped me into who I am. If there is anything that I want to choose to live by for the rest of my life, it’s positive thinking. I know it may sound cliche, the power of positive thought and languaging, but there is no room to negate it. But why? Why is positive thinking so powerful? It’s one of those questions that I have yet to find the answer.
What I do know for certain is that I have been blessed with positive people who constantly lift me higher and push me to be a better person, to be the better person. May I too be the person who lift them higher and push them. May it be a reciprocal relationship and not only one from which I benefit but from which everyone benefits.
Thank you Allah for crossing my paths with these wonderful souls and let us remain in each other’s company.
Even if we were to bid our goodbyes one day down the road, I am certain that they have each in their own ways, touched me positively and made me grow, and I pray that I have done the same for each of them too.
