Lol my husband says if I were to have any superpower in the world it’d be being “Excitable”. It is true that the simplest things excite me but it’s only bc I am extremely grateful for all of my experiences Alhamdulillah. Mashaallah reverting back to Islam only exemplifies this. All of those metaphors you hear about I literally do lol, if I am walking I literally stop to smell the roses & not just roses all flowers it’s just so amazing to me. Flowers the colors, smell, location, symmetry, chance, beauty etc I can go on. If I’m ever late to something this is probably why especially if I’m walking.
Now bc of this I get caught saying some of the weirdest things out loud lol. I was in the car with my husband one day going to the movies & I said “the air on Earth is so beautiful” he looked at me and was like ” Are you from here lol? What do you have to compare it to? My wife is an alien” LMBO we still laugh about this til this day. Honestly it did sound weird & yes I am human from Earth lmbo there is absolutely no way to say this without sounding more alien lol bare with me. Let me explain ( in my Kevin Hart voice): Your avg person would simply say “it’s nice outside” but to me it was more than that it indeed was a beautiful Virginia summer day but in the same breath the air is perfect for us, animals, plants, trees, even sea life whom spend most of their time in the water. Allah swt has made the air on Earth so custom uniquely for us and Mashaallah the Atlantic brought in an awesome breeze from the ocean at the time as well. A truly enjoyable experience that some have and an experience some are losing right now as I type this. When you give everything a chance of perspective you can appreciate the seemingly smallest blessings that are taken for granted.
There was a time the air wasn’t so great trapped on the top floor of a burning apartment building. Alhamdulillah my Mom would have us sitting on the floor in a circle after finishing Bible study by praying any given day ( I was raised Christian). We unknowingly stood up while the building was on fire then immediately dropped back down bc of the thick cloud of smoke & suddenly a fireman broke through my bedroom window. That is my comparison to the Beauty and Tragedy of Oxygen on Earth in both cases Allah was there. There is power in Prayer it literally saved us had we been sleep??? only Allah knows… So I am excited about the fresh air I breath. I am excited I get to pray. My excitement is only my overwhelming amount of gratitude bottled up in any simplistic happening. Surely not bc of some fire that’s only one of many occasions Allah swt has delivered me from. It is perspective & acknowledgment of blessings that allows us to see His guidance. I took a test last week & failed, I think everyone around me was way more upset and took it harder than I did lol. I was and am perfectly fine I just saw it as not my time to advance & who knows had I passed I could have gotten into some freak accident that would have severely impact my own being, so failing my test was a mercy & I live to blog it on tumblr this very moment. Alhamdulillah 😊. After all we can’t only thank God when things go our way it’s when they don’t as well because Allah swt is All Knowing and I’d rather follow His path than my own.
