So far I have had three:
1. When I found out that I was accepted into University in DC to study International Relations and Business.
2. When I found out I got accepted in the study abroad program in Cairo.
3. When I saw my daughter for the first time, stared to into her eyes and thanked Allah swt she came out perfectly healthy despite my hyperemisis during pregnancy.
I AM OFFICIALLY MOVING TO NEW YORK! (again haha)
Its been over a year since I have struggled with my daughter and our housing situation. I can comfortably say this past year has been the toughest year of my life although I tried my best to keep the negativity out of this blog. I became a single mom, a lot of my friendships were weakened if not lost, and over so many months of carrying a broken spirit I healed and found purpose again.
Today I am Thankful.
Not just because Allah swt answered my most ardent prayer, but because of what He put me through to get me to ask Him.
You truly see yourself clearly when you lose everything and almost everyone. It is when you are at your most raw and weakest form where you become receptive into transforming into something better.
I obviously have a lot of work to do still on myself, but knowing the things I have survived, and that Allah has blessed me with some ease after such a hardship is comforting.
By the way, my new apartment is literally a 30 second walk from the beach! Does happy dance*
Over the next week I will be cleaning and packing and moving with my best friend into our new home. After I get settled and start working again I will begin working on my business again at full force inshallah.
Stay tuned for pictures!!!
