The Uncomplicated Bliss of Being in Love with Life

So it's official. I am entering another quarter part of my life, Inshallah, and I believe I can't thank Allah enough for all the bless He has given me so far. I am humbly saying that these past 25 years have been truly miraculous. The road has definitely never been that smooth, but I can't either ask for a better one, because through all these years, I have been being blessed with a lot of stories and experiences, especially in the past three and half years with the presence of others. There are some people who came to my life, some took part in my story and few even left some deep and unerasable strokes, but they all have successfully made it so colorful, full of tears yet of genuine happiness. And yesterday, when I woke up in the morning, I realized that it wasn't only the day I aged, but also the day that I was entering another level of living, which is all about trying to give and believing. When you get something in return, then it's just a bonus for you. Perhaps it sounds too positive and clichè, but the truth is the more age I got, the more fight and faith are required to just live day by day, because you are not alone in this world. Because there are these people, like your family, or your friends, or those random persons you meet, who come to your life with various purposes. Only God knows the real purpose of every each of their presence, but for what I believe now, they are there as God's way to show His greatness, His magnanimity. Hence, you are always told to just surrender and keep believing in His love, for He is the only One who knows what's best for you. So, what we need to do next for acknowledging those persons is simply giving and believing. You try to give them every inch of you as your way to appreciate their existence and you believe that the institution you have with them is something to fight and have faith for. Like in the Murphy's Law that says, "If anything may go wrong, it will go wrong". Same thing happens with your relationship with them, but you can't just ditch them away from your life. So when something goes wrong, you fix it, or at least you try your best to fix it. This is when the struggle is needed and you have to be as strong as possible, but at the end, you don't work alone. There is God and you don't need to work ahead of Him, so this is when the faith is required. Eventhough you don't see anything yet, just trust Him, think positive of Him, and keep praying. If the result isn't like what you expect, at least you have tried. Well, people say that what doesn't kill, makes stronger instead, don't they? Thus, when you come out of the mess alive, you have nothing but a big pile of genuine happiness. Not only for yourself, because you have simply put your effort, but also for all of them who make your life is worth fighting and having faith for. So I thank you and I wish you well, always and forever. This is definitely something that I wanna remember.
At last, I am proudly saying that I am in love with my life :D
