When will i get to a point to were i can successfully be at peace and awareness with everything around me? I have been practicing zazen for a long time but will i ever reach enlightenment? Or will this take my whole life.

As long as you hold on to something, that is the feeling that remains. Letting go of your state of mind, of your ideas about how you are doing, and only then can you enter the fullfillment of the right here and now. That does not have to take a long time, but you can let of it in this moment. Of course, it is easy to say this, not so easy to actually do it.
