As’salamu Alaikum

Today was a delicious day! Not as a result of anything in particular, in fact my day was quite ordinary. I have finally arrived at that crossroad in my life. The point we all at some time or another will face.

Now for me, it brings a feeling of contentment. I am relaxed being inside my own skin. Liking me as Allah has intended, not needing to compare myself to anyone’s standards. Subhan Allah, my faith has become a foundation that will support the rest of my life’s decisions. My direction is clearly defined in the Qur’an.

I have lost “friends” over my firm beliefs. Alhamdulillah I have gained the opportunity for eternal life. Yes, sure to some (who are not Muslim, and maybe even some who are) not needing what is fashionable or popular in this life may appear extreme.
I will never be the “it” person. LOL, come to think of it…was I ever? And that brings me back to my delicious day. Crossroads are simply opportunities for a new direction. You may find yourself at a cross road now. Whenever it appears, stay true to yourself. The road may be a little less traveled but, the view along the way is splendid. Oh, and the people…nothing short of wonderful!
