"The first five kilometers is hard, because you're counting up. The last five is easier, because you're counting down"
It's always difficult and daunting when you start to pursue something, either big or small. But once you soldier through, and take that first big step, Insya-Allah you'll be able to make it to the end. Other people would finish before you, some would finish behind you, and some would use you as a yardstick - either way, just do you and race your race at your own pace.
May 2019 be the year where we take leaps of faith and pursue big dreams, and be granted massively from it.
