Twenty-two piece

Asalaam aleikum loves, a blog post has been long overdue but here it is. Strange title huh, well am turning 22 today and my outfit is a two-piece so twenty-two piece..creative no?. People celebrate the day they were born but i want to celebrate the year that was 21. Am not the same person i was last year and am so happy about that because if you're not changing then are you really growing. So lets take stock of 21 shall we;

Grateful- for the far i have come as a person. Looking at everything around me,from friends to family to school to this blog, i feel like God comes through so many times that sometimes you feel undeserving of it and i do not take any of it for granted. There's an ayah (quranic verse) that says 'if you are grateful,i will give you more' so don't forget to give thanks.
Learning- To have patience when things don't go my way. Patience has never been my strong suit, and i feel like now more than ever it is something that i need to work on, and Alhamdulilah everyday is a step forward. Also learning to give thanks when things go my way. 
Excited- About finishing uni, and to graduate soon in shaa Allah. New chapters in life, scary but exciting.
Praying- For everyone who crosses my mind, they say to honour the guests of your mind by making dua for them. I pray to God to give me the strength to deal with what i can, the patience to take what i can not and the wisdom to know the difference.
Loving- my people, you know yourselves..okay family of course and the 5 friends i have. Quality over Quantity. 
Living- Positively and in the present, i read somewhere that life is going to pull you right,left and centre telling you this is important..this needs your attention, but you should focus on what your doing right now. Positive vibes only btw, do not surround yourself with negative energy. if i feel like am being drained by something, i cut it off.
Feeling- 22..yaas, apparently this is when young adulthood begins..hey, looking forward to you.
Applauding- Everyone out there who's tryna do something with themselves, no matter how small you think it is, its not. To the women out there juggling life, you guys are bosses. Empower one another, can not emphasize that more.
Wearing- From the top, a jersey scarf from eastleigh
