This is goodbye.

My posts are all gone. Slowly over the years, some of them have been taken down. But then, I reached an epiphany. It was time to let them all go. And as I sat removing them, one by one, rays of sunshine started seeping into my heart. For all these years, I thought that this point in my life would be the toughest; that I’d have to force myself to shut it all down. To shut down all the memories and tears, to shut down all of the agony and the triumphs. But looking back, I realize that Allah (SWT) has given me the time to close each door, one by one. And as one door closed, He(SWT) opened another door for me. Until finally, all of the doors were able to be closed.

And now, 5 years later, I can’t remember what it felt like to be behind those closed doors. Soon, another door will open for me. Another opportunity will come knocking. Another experience will be waiting. And I eagerly wait to see what Allah (SWT) has in store for me.

“And whoever trusts in Allah, He is sufficient for him.” (65:3)

And so, this is goodbye. It’s time for me to fly.
