The View

Unforseen beauty

When you forget to loathe something, you will see the hidden beauty in it.

This used to be the part I hated most on our long drives from Kelantan to Taiping. The part after we pass the small town of Gerik, towards Kuala Kangsar. It has always felt and seemed endless, the long roads winding along rows of trees after trees, and hills after hills. It always felt so tiresome, especially in the night when you literally can't see anything around you.

However, our most recent drive through here somehow proved me quite wrong. I forgot to hate the road, and I saw and realised for the first time just how beautiful the view was along the drive.

The weather was light and breezy, with a slight drizzle when we approached Kuala Kangsar. I saw the beautiful hills engulfed in puffs of clouds, and the plethora of greenery lining the road. It was very beautiful and breathtaking. 

I guess the same goes for life. Maybe, just maybe. If we pause, stop, and take the time to forget to hate something. We will finally see, just how beautiful that something could actually be.

This reminds me of one of my favorite verses of the Quran.

"but perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you, and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. Allah knows while you know not"
Al-Quran 2:216

Be positive in life. Love, don't hate. A reminder for everyone, and especially for my cranky, easily-triggeredddd hulk-self  >-<
