Post-Single Life Relfection

Yes - it's completely intentional that my last post was about the single life, and now, here I am, writing from the married life perspective.

Before I got married, people used to tell me don't worry, once you get married, it'll all be perfect. After I got married, a few of my single friends would look at me with a longing look, asking me if it was all over-rated or if it's actually really awesome. 

This one is for all the single folks - the truth is marriage is amazing alhamdullilah. But, there's a lot that the facebook posts and new couple pictures don't show (yes, I'm guilty of this too :D). 

Here's a brief snippet: 
  • You have to have a complete work-life balance overhaul  
  • You now have to manage two of everything
  • You have to figure out the "we-time" and the "me-time" 
  • You have to figure out time management
The point is - I wrote it in my previous post, and I'll write it again here - Allah swt has a time and place for everything - including marriage. Have faith and know that at the right place, and at the right time, the right person will come along; now that I reflect back to a couple of years ago, I know without a doubt that I would never have been able to survive or even know how to cope with the changes that come with marriage. But today, in this very moment, I thank God for his epic timing - I couldn't have planned it any better; and know that for you too, He has a plan. Trust Him.
