About love and being a woman

The Richmond Bridge, Tasmania

Beautiful, don't you think?
Well, I think this bridge is romantic.

The Richmond Bridge is the oldest bridge in Australia. I immediately fell in love with it when I saw this photo. Whenever I see this kind of photo, I cannot skip myself from wondering if it's possible to experience walking on a bridge like this with my loved one someday? I wonder who will that man be.

To be loved by a person you love is a blessing.
But to marry someone you love is a greater blessing!

Lately I can say that almost every time my mind wanders, this thought will come through. It is a blessing to me if one could spend the rest of his life with the woman he loves. If this could happen to me, I'm sure the feeling would be wonderful. Being a 22-year-old woman can be quite challenging at times. Some of my friends are married and having children while some are busy planning for their big day! When I was a kid, I've always wanted to be an adult but I've never imagined that it could be this tough. The problem with growing up is we've always wondered how does it feel like to be older than we are now. We want to live in the future so much that we forgot to appreciate the present. A good lesson to teach my kids someday.

Talking about love, for now I'd just leave it in His hands. Although at times, I admit that the feeling of wanting to be loved sometimes appears in me. I know I have mentioned many times about how happy I am seeing my loved one happy but deep inside it is more than the words uttered. I want him to be happy, but I want him to be happy with me. I want to be the one who makes him smile and happy. But I'm only human and Allah knows better. All I can do is pray. I hope that these puzzles will finally make sense someday.

Hence, I leave this to Allah Al-Jabbar (The Restorer), the One who mends the broken and completes the incomplete.
