"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Another year bites the dust!

It’s a glorious day today. It’s the day I came into the world….covered in amnion and screaming my lungs out. Two weeks overdue and letting everybody know it lol. That’s right, Native is celebrating her birthday. A year has gone by………I don’t feel taller and I’m none the wiser. My biggest disappointment though is that my shoe size didn’t grow…..I’m still stuck at 3 (that’s UK size by the way……US size 5.5 and Euro size 35.5) , I am still clinging on little hope. Can a 20 something year old increase in shoe size? Weirder stuff has happened lol

My shoe size aside…..when I was 10yrs old I thought that by the time I celebrated my 23rd b’day…. I would have been done with school, have a family of my own and at least know how to drive.

Well I’m still in school, and I haven’t learned how to drive yet (probably because I will spend most of my time getting lost or in my thoughts while driving. My parents have been pushing me to drive since God knows when….maybe I’ll do that before my next b’day). Family of my own…..that’s another issue that deserves a post of its own.

My goal for this year? To get through life…….the rest will fall into place inshaAllah

I’ll post more later (or more accurately another day) inshaAllah, right now I want you all to make dua that this year is one that is filled with kheyr for all of us ameen

May Allah grant all the mu’mineen more years to spend in his worship and may Allah guide the misguided and make us of the guided ameen
