You are exactly where you are meant to be. Be it good or bad, open your eyes and live that moment out because its rewards will go, its treasures will fade, and so will its opportunities - sometimes never to return again. Trust the One who placed you where you currently are. Alhamdulillah.

Malik ibn Dinar:

“The believer is noble and generous in all states. He does not like that his neighbour be harmed nor that any of his relatives be in poverty.” 

Malik then wept and said,

“By Allah, despite that, he (the believer) is rich at heart although he does not possess anything in this world. If you were to try and trip him up and cause him to slip in his religion, he will never slip. But if you were to deceive him in his wealth, he will be deceived.” (i.e. his concern, protection and strength lies in his religion more than his worldly possessions).
