It's getting cold, like I am freezing almost everytime I am outside. Feels like winter already but the leaves are still green! Oh, with some color transitions.
The last autumn maybe, if I proceed with my decision to go back for good after graduation. It is a long way to go actually even though few more months left. More exams to be done yet less time to do revision. Procrastinate much? I hope not T_T
I wrote a lot of posts to ponder about autumn before. If you would like to read, I've compiled few of them here :) I would love to read your comments of thoughts. Hihi
Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky and makes it flow as springs [and rivers] in the earth; then He produces thereby crops of varying colors; then they dry and you see them turned yellow; then He makes them [scattered] debris. Indeed in that is a reminder for those of understanding. Quran 39:21
Things to ponder about autumn - let's recap these as I think I wrote them in few posts before.
1. The seasons change accordingly to Allah's plan.
Accordingly here means correctly.
There will never be other than this rotation - summer > autumn > winter > spring. Same goes to our life. We have a life journey than has been planned for us, like in the picture below. We know about it, the different is, this journey will not repeat like the seasons. Once we died, we can never return to the world. This is the thing we (especially me) always forget about and take this fact for granted.

There's a quote from a book I'm currently reading.
Sepertimana sebelum kita dilahirkan di dunia dulu, kita berada di dalam perut ibu. Begitulah juga setelah kita mati nanti, kita akan berada di dalam perut bumi.
2. He knows everything in this world - even when a single leaf falls.
Yeah, I know this is cliche. But, I hope this is a reminder to myself when I am typing this.
Just few days ago someone told me, it is okay to fulfill your desire (like watching your favorite drama, listening to lagha songs) as long as you keep it to yourself and just don't let it encourage other people to do so. Somehow I agree in disagree.
I agree to the point almost everybody hide their own 'aib' kan? But disagree when it actually confirms that I cannot even control myself. It's like ouch... nampak sangat nafsu nak buat benda tak berfaedah tu menebal sangat. It's like running away from reality, seeking for things that make me happy instead of asking comfort, pleasure and peace in mind from Allah.
