Dear Yantie... Love Yantie.


Dear Yantie,

I know that there are so many things that you are holding in your heart. It was only these past couple of weeks that you were ready to let go of things that no longer belongs there.

I know that you used to chase this dunya. But sometimes your desires can leave you broken. For the past two years, I’ve watched you pick up the pieces by yourself. I have never felt so proud to see how you have grown into a resilient and confident woman. Everything that you have experienced in the past, has led up to this point. Your destiny really is synchronised. SubhanAllah. He is Great. Alhamdullilah for the good and alhamdulillah even for the ‘bad’.

You have learnt so many lessons in these past couple of years. And one of them is that you should always pray to God to only let your heart desire what He wants. This is because you can’t deny the presence of God everywhere you go.

I know that it can get overwhelming. You see all these signs. God really is guiding you. Sometimes you are stuck between a mind that overthinks and a heart that is content. But because you have worked on yourself, you know how to stop overthinking. Alhamdulillah.

Right now, just focus on being the best the version of yourself and continue to grow. When you are ready and it is the right time, everything will be made easy. InsyaAllah. But remember to make it easier by always purifying your intentions and to do things for the love of God.

It’s amazing how loving yourself can help you make the best decisions for yourself. You are love and there is so much love for you Yantie. Love from your family, your friends and even people that you have yet to meet. Most importantly, God loves you. Never forget that. You are valuable. And you hold so much worth. It all begins with you. The only thing ever stopping you from anything is yourself.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
— Rumi

It’s even more amazing how one small thought can change your whole life. You never expected your life to be like this. And sometimes you forget that the past couple of months had even happened. Sometimes, it seems like you are awake in a dream. But I can assure you that everything is real and everything has happened so beautifully in the best way possible. Alhamdullilah.

You forget because you believe that you are still you. You know that you are just an ordinary human being. You are imperfect and you own your mistakes. But you are more than capable to do extraordinary things. You have within you everything that you need to achieve all the dreams and hopes that you have.

You are both excited and optimistic for what the future holds. But you would be lying if you were to say that you’re not scared. Especially since everything is happening so fast. I know that you have your goals and your dreams. But those goals and dreams don’t need to be achieved straight away. Be calm. Stay there. You are still so young. Take things one at a time. Good things do take time. And good things also need to be nurtured. So nurture yourself. Treat yourself kindly. Take care of your health and wellbeing. Take care of you.

It’s okay to slow down and it is okay to say no. I know that you have always been scared of not having enough time for all the things that you want to do but have trust in the timing of the Divine. God is always on your side and everything will happen in your favour. InysaAllah.  

Just remember that your prayers are being heard and that you should always listen to your intuition.
