Everyday we are faced with trials, sometimes, we thrive but, let’s admit, most of the time we fail. The beauty of failing is learning. Learning from our mistakes and most importantly, putting in effort to avoid repeating it. There have been countless of times when I failed and with the blessing of Allah, I learnt from it. Alhamdulillah.
I just got offered a place in my Masters class for Jan 2018 instead of 2019. I am not sure if I should accept it or wait till 2019. Money is holding me back. Without financial constraints, I really feel like it is the perfect time for me to go next year. I’m in my mid 20s, with no family commitment and with time at hand, it’s definitely great for me start as quickly as possible.
May Allah ease my affairs.
Lately, many of my friends are getting married and expecting their first or second child. I used to feel a certain kind of loneliness and yearning, thinking and pondering when will it ever be my turn. But Alhamdulillah, now I find peace with it. I no longer yearn to wait for my turn, because Allah has placed me on another path.
I’ve always wanted to have kids, and Allah has blessed me with 24 of them, my little monkeys in school. I love being around them and it’s amazing how they always make me feel happy. Indeed, Allah is the best of planners.
I get to have kids and yet, still have my own free time. Alhamdulillah. I even get to pursue my studies and learn arabic. With the time Allah has given me, I will better myself with knowledge to help others, InshaaAllah! (And watch my korean dramas heheh)
May Allah bless you and your family, whoever you may be (:
