BIRTHDAY <3

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

It’s my B I R T H D A Y today, another year has passed, and another year accomplished. I am 24. Thanks to the will of the Lord Almighty.
This will be a very reflective post, enjoy.
img_3836This year I’ve been fortunate enough to visit my friend in her home country, Lithuania, to spend my birthday here has been amazing so far. The hospitality, sweet treats and scenic routes are more than I could’ve imagined (upcoming posts sharing my travels will be shared soon).

I wanted to write a post to share how thankful I am for everything up until this point in my journey and for what I have left to experience. None of this would’ve been possible without my loved ones and most importantly, the Lord Almighty. I’m so thankful to be in a position where I can do what I like and travel wherever I like.

I’m at a stage in my life where I experience no boundaries and I’m learning to take no for an answer. Learning to become an independent individual and do things for me, this hasn’t come easily and one that takes a lot of patience and determination. Sometimes we have to sacrifice and hurt people in the short term to gain a better understanding and experience in the long term – this is what life is to me.

My journey through life has been quite the commotion, but in the short amount of time that I have experienced this world it’s definitely taught me a lot and showed me what’s worth valuing and giving up my time for.  Our life can become so robotic and in turn we can become so complacent. So it’s important to remember what matters and what the value of everything means to us.

My life goal is not just to increase my own personal wealth and happiness but to do the same for those around me. Learn to be humble and appreciate all aspects of life. Learn to share the happiness and wealth. In the current western world, all I see is compulsive, consumerist behaviour, one that needs to be broken down.  This isn’t a “new year new me post”, it’s a reminder to myself to express that I’m still growing, learning and evolving and to allow myself that time and opportunity to do so.

Cheers 24, lets see what this next year brings ❤

FYI, I’m currently in Lithuania and travelling to Iceland next week, so stay tuned. Until my next post, xoxo
