It's always refreshingly raw and exhilirating in a way, when you discover that things are not as you thought they were and people are not who you thought them to be. Sometimes it's disappointing, sometimes it's pleasantly surprising and sometimes it's just different.
Still trying to figure out which categories I'd consider my realizations to be....hmmm...
We tend to forget how illusory this world is...We live in the comfort of illusion--Nothing is as it seems.
I find it funny when people tell me that they feel uncomfortable when they see a woman wear hijab or niqab because "They are too covered up". How about some of us feeling uncomfortable when people show too much and are too uncovered? There are bans on hijab and niqab, yet no bans on mini-skirts or tube tops. Give me a break.
I think it's that time to move on to the next chapter of my life...hmmm...I've been thinking about marriage lately, and I believe it's time I stop running from it, face my fears and get over it, with the trust of the Beloved Creator. No more sitting around wondering what's to come next, flipping each page, reflecting on should've, could've, would've. Ahhh...I've been letting this thought simmer and it's time I use it to cook something great, no more tossing it out.
Let's motivate the youth to inspire the world with their creativity and originality...Show them the beauty of books, art, music, peace, nature, love, science, etc. rather than MTV, Facebook surfing, laziness, video games and imitating Jersey Shore. That is all.
