I am thinking about where I was a year ago, feeling a little hopeful, because for once an interview process with several stages resulted in an offer. I was a little less depressed than I had been earlier in the year.
It’s not all rosy, this new chapter in my life has brought with it new challenges, personal, spiritual, professional. But I am learning to slow my pace and take things as they are, accept the things I can not change and fix the things I can. I am turning 30 in less than thirty days but I’m just looking at it as it “is what it is.”
This life is not what I envisioned for myself at 22. But I see the the bigger picture in terms of why certain things were meant to be. Of course, there are things that I wish were better, that had gone the way I wanted, but such is life. It might have been great if that project I started actually worked out, or if that encounter had lead to something more fruitful, but, ya know.
Now, it’s all about thinking short and long-term, reflecting each day and keeping calm. Yup. Alhamdulilah!
