Words of wisdom by the Herbwoman

Since i’m too busy enjoying shortbread cookies and tea among other things, the herbwoman decided to give in a little something for the readers. Enjoy.


Once in a lifetime you must meet someone who will make your world go round and fill you with infinite joy that screams of bold yet beautiful colors.

It is important that you do meet such a person so you can restore your faith in mankind and know that there is hope in this world even though everything else you have ever come across was laced with pain hopelessness and despair.

You will rub your eyes and with hanging jaw stare at this mortal because he will make you step back and scrub off all the notions about love, life, friendship, present, past and future that you have accumulated through your brief walk into adulthood.

You will want to tell the world about how he makes your world go round and how you feel like God gave you a second chance in life but you will also be scared that if you did you will jinx it all up.

It will feel like an amazing dream to be cherished, adored and dotted on with no strings attached but the best part is that it would really be reality knocking at your door, willing you to claim this person forever.

However, you will radiate a faint stench of fear; of falling too hard, of ruining everything beautiful by magnifying your own insecurities and turning into a needy, clingy overbearing soul but you know he will smell the fear and pacify it, because he’s the sort you meet once in a life time.

In the end you have got to do justice to everything that has been given to you, so you close your eyes, turn your head and raise your hands towards the sky and let the sound of your love vibrate out of your heart.  You hope that God will respond to your silent pleas by making this once in a lifetime opportunity last forever.

Mashallah. Inshallah. Alhamdulilah.  ;)
