I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine about "The age of wisdom". It was something rather new to me, simply because I never really gave it a thought.

I suppose one can never set a certain age at when one reaches maturity, whether it is emotionally, or mentally. What's certain though is that each of us reach that point in our life at different stages, some earlier than others, while some maybe old in numbers but still young at heart.

I used to be a daydreamer, always fantasising about the future, wondering how my life would be. But I suppose that they were simply a mere form of escapism that I have developed, to escape from the harsh realities of life, and in the end that left me feeling emptier than before, wondering about "What if?"

Lately I have had a change of perspective of life, and I feel more content with my life, since then.

To focus on the present, and now, on what we have instead of what we don't.

To give all our best for today, and pray for the best for tomorrow.

To love people while I still can, because you never know when they'll be gone.

To live, and let live, and let bygone, be bygone.

Perhaps I've reached the age of wisdom, perhaps not. But what I'm sure of is life is a constant learning process, mistakes are the best teachers, love and hope are the best cure.

So have faith, keep calm, and carry on.

InsyaAllah, InsyaAllah,

The Alhamdulillah tree, where we write down each blessing to see how it grows everyday. thinking of doing this with my future family someday, insyaAllah.
