This is it.

It has been a slow process of realization for me that: this is it.

What I have in my life, who I have in my life - this is it. There is no point at which sadness melts away, or some state of happiness is finally reached. Nope, this is all we have - the journey is what's memorable & we can't lie in wait for one event to happen so that we're suddenly satisfied with our lives.

What this means practically: no more waiting for a husband in order to start thinking about going for hajj. No more procrastinating what I truly love to do until a time that's more "convenient." No more wondering if one day I could be more beautiful. And no more expecting more from this life than it will actually give me.

Because as much as it pains us to say; this is it.

True contentedness only comes in 1 place. I think you know what place I'm talking about.

This is, by far, the greatest post you have ever written. May Allah love you and give you the highest spot in "the place" that you're talking about. Ameen.

The moment you come to that realization is the moment where you start to live your life for what it is rather than what you wish it were. Welcome to the new world, mashallah. :)
