*What 2009 means to me….*

What does hopping into the year 20-0-9 mean to me?

Not much.

The Islamic calendar has already turned a new year a few days ago. The rest of the world’s celebrating the turn of a new year as the clock strikes 12 soon. It just means another 365 days of doing the same things I’ve done in 20-0-8 i.e being a wife, being a mom, being a daughter, being a sister, being a friend, being a colleague, being a teacher, being a blogger, being an acquaintance,?being a neighbour, being a stranger. Just a new round of 365 days of trying my best to control my temper, of trying to lose weight, of trying to eliminate my procrastinating demon, of trying save money, of trying to be the best I can be. Being in 2009 just means, according to the calculations the world stipulated, I’ll turn 27.

2009. I’ll still try to control my temper. Still try to lose weight. Still be battling with my P-demon. Still struggle to save money from the clutches of Retail-Therapy. Still try to be a better person than I am presently at every aspect of my life.

2009=same ol’ resolution=one more extra wrinkle=3 more years to big ol’ 30=running out of time.

Sands of time slipping through very quickly. Just glad that through this lifetime, I’ve great family & friends to journey it?with, though.

Despite how depressing another year forward sounds, another 365 days of being with loved ones and doing things I love, makes it all worthwhile.

Thank you, Allah, for still giving me this opportunity.


I’m over the moon when he asked me that question.

Yes, we shall.

God permits.
