I’m Grateful

Standard

My life might not be perfect, and I might not have achieved the goals I thought I would have by now. I might not be living the kind of life I thought I would be or want to be, but I’m grateful for the life I had lived till now. You see no matter how mean and cruel the world can get, you should start counting your blessings, and you will realize what you have  received is more than what you have given. Oh, yes I know it’s easy to see the problems in our lives. They’re like mountains. But sometimes we overlook the smaller things; we don’t notice how truly beautiful they are. We easily overlook the ordinary or all the little things that matter and take them for granted.

So today I’m expressing my gratitude; I am really a fortunate person with many reasons to be grateful. I’ve been blessed with love and friendships and also wonderful kinship. For the most part I’ve been happy and content, and most of my time has been well spent; and  I had most things that I wanted

I’m grateful for having the most wonderful and kind parents and sister; they love me unconditionally from every part of their hearts and souls. They make things better in every situation by just being there besides me.

I’m grateful for having my little princess Nelly in my life. Her eyes radiate pure love. I must have done something right to have been chosen by this sweet soul.

I’m grateful for having  loving and supporting  friends that never fail to make me laugh. They keep seeing the best of me and being my gravity. With them, I’m never walking alone as I’m surrounded by pack of strong wolves who always get my back.

I’m grateful for having Rabih in my life; he is my sunshine, my moon and my starlight. The comfort I feel when he’s holding me is priceless.

I’m grateful for having a job in a bad economy and I’m working with many professional and down to earth people

I am grateful for the problems in my life; they help me change myself into a new being.

I am grateful for my health that allows me to enjoy life to the fullest

I am grateful that I am emotionally strong person as there are many close to me who are suffering from pain, sickness, relapse and depression, I am grateful I can show up and be present for them

I am grateful to have discovered this beautiful oasis called WordPress where I met wonderful, creative people from around the world who love to share their hearts, souls, wisdom, information, happiness and pain

Quote of the week

Standard

In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
Albert Camus

Unhappy Marriage

Standard

She’s starring at him

Wishing he could gaze upon her eyes

To see she’s drowning without water

But it’s a mere wish

And this is what it feels like to be forgotten

She wonders what happened to him.; what happened to their love?

He used to be her safe harbor when storm batter her

And what happened to her?

She begin to feel like a dry oak leaf left to be crumbled alone

Or like a dust in the wind

Sad, dry, and non-dancing dust

Life Lessons

Standard

I have hurt and I have been hurt. I have loved with all my heart and I have been loved. I have lost and I have been lost. I have laughed…I have cried…I have yelled…I have thrown things…I have made the most of each moment and I have wasted time…I have thrown myself into things that I was not ready for and I have waited too long to jump on the train of opportunity. But all in all…I have learned and still learning.

There are days when I feel impatient with the way my life is going and I feel angry or frustrated. Yes my career is not going the way I planned and my job is not satisfying, yes I have financial problems, and yes caring for others can be tiring sometimes and I can’t find time for myself. I need to learn how to be patient. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to do nothing:  to wait for events to unfold in their own time. I need to learn to relax and stop trying to force things to happen. I can’t control everything in my life, and it is this is the right time to stop trying. I don’t have to achieve all my goals in one day or even one month.

 Despite the disappointments of our complex lives, we should begin to learn how to live. I will continue to strive for progress and be satisfied to be an imperfect human. Each day is a new start for me and each moment is a new beginning.

Why do we write?

Standard

I’m going to share with you the words of the author Terry Tempest Williams on why does she write, I think we can all relate to her beautiful words.

I write to make peace with the things I cannot control. I write to create red in a world that often appears black and white. I write to discover. I write to uncover. I write to meet my ghosts. I write to begin a dialogue. I write to imagine things differently and in imagining things differently perhaps the world will change. I write to honor beauty. I write to correspond with my friends. I write as a daily act of improvisation. I write because it creates my composure. I write against power and for democracy. I write myself out of my nightmares and into my dreams. I write in a solitude born out of community. I write to the questions that shatter my sleep. I write to the answers that keep me complacent. I write to remember. I write to forget….

I write because I believe in words. I write because I do not believe in words. I write because it is a dance with paradox. I write because you can play on the page like a child left alone in sand. I write because it belongs to the force of the moon: high tide, low tide. I write because it is the way I take long walks. I write as a bow to wilderness. I write because I believe it can create a path in darkness….

I write as ritual. I write because I am not employable. I write out of my inconsistencies. I write because then I do not have to speak. I write with the colors of memory. I write as a witness to what I have seen. I write as a witness to what I imagine….

I write because it is dangerous, a bloody risk, like love, to form the words, to say the words, to touch the source, to be touched, to reveal how vulnerable we are, how transient we are. I write as though I am whispering in the ear of the one I love.
