I was graciously tagged ( 😉 ) by Cheryl at Four Camels and a Coffee to Go to undertake the quote challenge…stick around to the end of the post to see the rules and who I tagged!
And surely what comes after is better for you than that which has gone before.
-Surah Al-Duha (Quran 93:4)
Ok, say what you will. Yes, I did chose a religious verse as my first quote. Particularly because I have been returning to this short snippet over and over again as of late. Although it arguably refers to the afterlife, I like to think it means something else as well.
Despite the constant stream of excitement I have been blasting on my blog about moving to Turkey soon (inshallah), it would be a lie to say that I’m not scared. I worry a lot about how I am going to make it in a new country, with new customs, and how to balance my own culture with the one I am adopting. Being on a crowded train without understanding the background conversations? To me, that’s scary.
I keep looking at this verse as a promise of hope. Surely, this next step of my life will be even better than the one that came before…?
The Quote Challenge:
Post a quote for three consecutive days (an original or just a quote that you like).
Rules: Thank the person you tagged you and nominate three more to keep it going!
And I knight…
