for after almost two years of activating this blog, already ( only ) 50 posts are being posted !
To celebrate that, this 50th post will be dedicated to the blog itself.
I was having lunch with one of my dearest friends, Nurul, and we were discussing about how we are always wanting stuff in life. We feel like life starts after we own something or more commonly achieve something.
I mean, since we were little girls, we would always have dreams of becoming a career woman, falling in love with prince charming, getting married in an extravagant dress, having beautiful kids and so on...
The thing is that, at every point in our lives, we tend to tell ourselves that we will only be happy if...!
And true to that statement, we work very very hard to achieve what we wanted.
However, for all you know, right after getting it, we will then yearn for something else,
and will only be happy then.
and so the cycle goes on and on, and naudzubillah we will never be happy until the day we die.
So Nurul and I decided that it was time, that we appreciate what we have and be thankful.
Not just by saying thank you, but by enjoying life as it is.
Making the best of every moment we have, may it be good or bad.
It is somehow funny that good times pass so fast but bad times linger around us longer.
However it is even funnier to me that I feel closer to myself and those around me during the bad times rather than the good.
For only ALLAH Knows what's best for us.
and nothing is funny bout the paragraph above as we often refer trials and tribulations as bad events but little do we know that those are our real teachers in life.
So any good or bad events is not for us to judge. Cruise thru it with the best you've got.
I realized that writing in the blog has enabled me to freeze some moments in my life for me to see and appreciate every single thing in my life, cause sometimes life moves so fast that you don't get to grasp its beauty or the wisdom it holds.
Every second is about learning something and every second is about celebrating!
Celebrating the Neverending Love of The Creator!
So, let's celebrate by thanking Him, not only with words but also by actions.
that is to use all that we have, all that we are,
in worshiping Him.
Whatever you do, turn them into forms of Ibadah or worship by having pure intentions according to The Quran and Sunnah.
and most importantly, enjoy doing it!
Appreciate every family member, every friend, every moment!
This blog will continue to be used to freeze some moments,
that I will surely remember ever so slightly due to my fast fast-paced life.
May they remind me of the fond memories that I have,
only to remind me to be thankful.
ALHAMDULILLAHI RABBIL AALAMIN,
Ever So Powerful,
The Most Magnificent!
