I downloaded the link and will try to read later (if I find the time to do so). If I can guess correctly the content, my reply would be:
Imagine that we, as human being, know everything and able to do everything, do you think that life would have a value. No work, no learning, no new experience, no joy to achieve things, no tears to appreciate the smile, no failure to appreciate the success... quite boring (at least for me).

Do the best you can and don't look around!
Do the things you like and enjoy them!

All success.

If life changing decision are usually the hardest, then you could imagine that usually the harder our dreams are-how much character it would built in us. Usually valuable characters; determined, patience, hardworking, appreciation etc...InsyaAllah, my prayer is for you. It may seems like a hurdle from afar, but by the time you reach the hurdle, you might have already build who lot of muscle and will to go through it like another step on the road. InsyaAllah

U know raino, being a "good" translator is a very very demanding job! Now this is not to mean that I`m a good 1 myself, far from it actually!

But it IS a fulfilin` challenge to describe thoughts/emotions/ideas in another language. It`s twofold"ly" hard; 1st to REALLY absorb the source, then to put it to another reader in his/her own language! so hard!
I looked for a couple of articles that helped me understand the complexity + importance of it but couldn`t find them :( "I have them back homethough"
I guess what I`m saying is that u should be empowered by such gr8 translation work not boiled down from it :)

*my dad worked as a translator for ... "all his life" , lol ... still he is.. and he always tell me that he is now "a translator between good & a very good one" :)
