We are yet to begin a new year and a new decade. What a great time to be alive. All thanks to Him. This is a big deal, right? How grateful I am to God for making a lot things happen my way and for also making a lot of things happen His own way and not my way. Looking back, I give thanks.

This decade has brought us a long way. When the decade we are just about to bid farewell to began, I was a teenager with not much to worry about. How I wish I only knew half of things I know now. But no regrets, a lot of self-growth has taken place.
This decade has been the defining moment in my life. It has been 10 years worth of self discovery. This has been the moment of make it or break it for me, the twenties. The times when reality hits you hard.The times you realize you are nolonger fully dependent on your parents for everything. When you realize you have to make very crucial decisions on your own and bare the consequences. The world can become very small. Right. Ask me about it.
Despite all that, my heart is full and at peace because I know what was meant for me will never miss me and what misses me was not meant for me-Al-Shafl’i.
A lot has happened during the last 10 years. Moments of incredible gain and incredible loss. Moments of laughter and moments of crying like a calf. Despite all that, my heart is full and at peace because I know what was meant for me will never miss me and what misses me was not meant for me. I came across this famous quote by the Muslim writer, Al-Shafl’i and it brought me peace. What a great way to reason out the truth.
I have more time for roses and breathers. More time to enjoy my days. I have learnt to live by smelling the roses. This doesn’t mean giving up, but instead giving in. LETTING GO. Trusting and trusting a bit more.
As I was walking home one day in the village, I took a glance at the setting Sun. It was beautiful. I could have failed to notice it. I could have kept walking and carried on with my deep thoughts.
I could have kept trying, pushing, doing and working and in the process forgotten one simple thing I needed to do. Stop for a moment and stare at the brilliant sky and smile.
I felt my heart at ease.
CHEERS AND LOVE!
We meet again in 2020! Happy New year, Happy New decade!
