I had a shoot with The Star recently with 5 gorgeous girls; Miss Universe Malaysia Kimberly Leggett (who led the runway at FV’s 1st birthday wooot!), Miss World 2008 Soo Wincci, artists Elvira and Liyana Fizi and waterskiing champion Phillipa.
We did it in conjunction with International Women’s Day happening this 8th of March.
That interview and shoot was not only fun because of the 6 different characters they grouped together, but because they made us feel like queens when they asked “What do you want in life?”
The editor thinks that a lot of women know what they don’t want, but when asked what they actually want, they have no clue!
When they asked me that, I sat down for a bit. Gosh… it’s such a simple question, yet it really makes you think about life and your end goal. God put us here, so now what, what do we want to achieve in life? A lot of preachers think life as a Muslim is all about praying, fasting, and constantly learning by going to Islamic talks and courses all the time. Yes, it is, but I do think it’s an added bonus and God would be proud if we did other things to improve society, learning about the world and the other beliefs/cultures people have, or working hard to improve our careers.
So after a while, I found my answer.
What I really want in life is to strike a balance.
I want to spend time with my family. I want to work hard and have successful businesses. I want to spend time learning and practicing Islam. I want to write more often. I want to learn how to cook. I want to travel the world. I want to raise a family. I want to be an awesome and loving wife. I want to go on holidays with my girlfriends. I want to go to the gym more often. I want a healthier lifestyle.
All these things are possible, but what annoys me is how fast time flies! We can’t seem to do much in a day anymore. So that’s what I’m struggling to do and what I really want out of life; a balance of everything.
Now your turn.
What do you want?
