Hitting the 30 (three zero)!

Only yesterday I was in my twenties and today I’m in my thirties. Wow. One day and I’m old already. In my teenage years anyone more than 20 was old in my opinion, which (and here I mean the age limit that I thought was the barrier between young and old) later changed to 25. But 30 was the ultimate line. Every year after 25 was spent dreading that well atleast I’m still a few years away from the three zero. So finally the three zero has arrived. In the blink of an eye all those years from my teens to the twenties have faded into yesterday. Looking back I remember discovering the facts of life in my teens, living in a fantasy world of my dreams. Oh what a wonderful wonderful time that was. Alas, you have to grow up and well face difficulties, make friends for life, even see bitchiness from your friends, fall in love, make mistakes and all of them will have taught you something by the end of it. And it did. To me all those things that I did have taught me a lesson in life. Who matters and who doesn’t, what’s good and what’s not, the difference between right and wrong. Had I not faced all those things I would not be the person that I am today.

When I look back it all seems like a dream, now that it has passed. A beautiful dream with well a few bad hitches =). I have been so blessed to have had a loving family, friends who really cared and with whom I had the time of our lives. Now that all are married and settled and have lives of their own, none of us can do all that stuff that we used to. But those memories are etched forever in the slate of my mind. So three zero I’m gonna take a big breath and embrace you with open arms. Lets see what these 10 years bring until the four-oh is near *ouch*. So yes I’m kind of feeling older and wiser but inside I’m still that cheesy person who is impulsive, who laughs at stupid things, cries for no reason and loves in return all the people who love . Maybe this might be a new beginning, a new experience, a decade full of life’s adventures. Yes, I’m looking forward to it. Waiting for the even better things in life to come, and creating more memories.

I’m just gonna wait and see.

The Story ofLife

Today might seem not so good or great or even a stand-still according to whats happening in your life. But remember this is just one day. Days can be bad, sad, happy or contented or boring or maybe with nothing happening at all. The true essence of it all is how well those days sum up to be. Sum up to be the life you lead. In the end all that matters is how well you tried to mend your life if it was a broken one, or how well you shared happiness with people who were sad and lonely. Days may be low and high, depending on our moods. Never let it get you down because life is not a one day story. It is anything but a short one. Each and everyday will count when you look back and analyze life. Sometimes we have to make decisions that are not easy to make, decisions that may change the whole course of our life. Accept life in a new way. Harsh as it sounds, keep going on. Because you never know whats in store for you next. Life is a series of events of all kinds. At times we get happiness from something unexpected. Now thats a miracle. We should be thankful for all the comforts and blessings we have in life. Keep faith in yourself that you can change your life for good. And most of all, keep faith in God. The highest power who has written your fate. Things will work out for the good if you believe them to. And best leave all your worries with Allah.

“Verily in the remembrance of God (dhikr Allah) do hearts find rest!” (13:28). In the end when you look back upon your life you should be able to smile at how well you survived all the hardships set upon you and how well you aced the test called ‘life’.
