Laughing

Standard

The most wasted day of all is that on which we have not laughed.- Sebastien Chamfort

Laughing is the cheapest remedy and natural medicine as it helps you heal. Laughing brings colorful rainbows to the grey areas in your life.

According to science, you live one more day if you laugh fifteen minutes. Why you ask? Laughing can help you to reduce stress, blood pressure, improve cardiac health, memory and learning. It also helps to ease depression and anxiety. Have you heard about Norman Cousins? If you didn’t then you should. Norman suffered from Ankylosing Spondylitis which a chronic disease of axial skeleton. His disease was considered to be intractable however he fought it by training himself to laugh and taking huge amount of Vitamin C. And as a result, Norman managed to drive this disease into remission.

Laughing breaks all the invisible barriers as it can bring people together and help them establish strong connections by making them feel close to one another. Also, laughing reminds people that they are able to smile again and that a better perspective in life is returning. Sometimes laughing in the most unexpected times can bring relief and absolute joy in your life.

We only have today to live, so why not laugh and enjoy it? Why not open ourselves up to a good laugh and let it push our pain or sorrow out? Now that we are once again choosing how we feel, we have the power to opt for joy.

Can you imagine how the world would be if everyone is laughing every day? So why don’t you start with yourself today and do something that can make you laugh? It can be anything from watching a funny movie or stand-up comedy, playing with your friends or children, reading a comic book or finding a creative way to be silly.

The space to write

Standard

I’m like a night owl, I come alive at darkness. The darkness and quietness provide me with the necessary jolt to write. I sit at my desk and everything clicks when I’m hunting for words. At that moment, words start racing through my mind and I just need to set them free. I feel like a poet investigating all subjects: love, pain, life and death. So, I grab a pen and free those words to paper in order to turn them into beautiful creations.

I don’t like to use the laptop while I’m writing, I prefer the old fashioned way: a pen and a paper. I discovered that writing by hand produces some of my best work. In addition, it’s easier to edit or write notes with a pen. I often listen to music and sip some red wine as it help me to get more inspiration for writing. In winter, I don’t need any music I just listen to the raindrops making the sweetest music on earth and at that moment nothing else exists. I also write in my head, that’s why I always keep a red notebook with me to write down random thoughts so I won’t forget about them. Sometimes, I picture myself sitting down in one Hemingway’s favorite Paris cafes, wondering what it’s like to write there.

Inspiration From The Social Media: Breaking the rules

Standard

tweet

Rules are like promises, words, and hearts are meant to be broken. Rules seep between the cracks of life to control your mind and then squeeze your neck to suffocate you. We live within an open air prison made up by society. Who makes all these rules? It’s your government, your society, your peers, your colleagues, etc. They set all the rules and decide what the norms for you are in order to keep you in check and stop you from stepping out of your comfort zone. That’s why, we struggle to be perfect all the time, but what is perfection anyway? It is just another made up illusion to keep us down. We should feel the fear and dance with it; after all we learn and grow through failure.

The walls of society are closing and ready to stifle any flame of uniqueness, creativity and imagination. These made-up rules of society will turn you eventually into a fake person, a robot or a slave. It’s time for you to release your wrists from the fierce grip of society’s rules. Get the hell out of this scary dungeon and start to color your world outside the lines. Let your soul heal. And only then you will start to have fun in your life since you’re no longer afraid to be crazy, wild, rebel, unique and weird. You will have freedom to pursue your vocation and passion in life.

Night

Standard

night

I wait all day to see the lights of the city go out at night

As I’m always seduced by the long legs of the night,

Waiting for the calmness and the refreshing breeze

Where the moon become my companion for the night

As I look at the black veil of night,

I take comfort in looking at the moon and stars

Shinning so bright

At this moment, my fears, doubts, and tears are washed away tremendously

And everything appears to be smiling again

I can’t help myself but to ponder

That we need the darkness of the night

To see the light of the day

No Regret

Standard

There are two kinds of people in your life. The ones that are going to pick you up, and the  ones that are going to push you down, but in the end, you will thank them both.

So I guess it turns out, sometimes you have to do the wrong thing. Sometimes you have to make a mistake to figure out how to make things right.
Mistakes are painful, but they are the only way to figure out who you really are.

We have to learn by our mistakes and move on from them
Everything in life is a life lesson to learn by.
Some good, some bad.
All of these that we go through will make us a better person one day
We will either share them with someone else that needs to know
Or one day they will be a help to our children.
But we do grow from every experience
and become better by them.
That’s why I don’t believe in the word “regret” I believe in this following phrase:

 Live a life without regrets like there is no tomorrow

no regret

Why Do I write?

Standard

Oh, I love writing and I am short of words to describe how much I love it!!. There’s always a sense of thrill and accomplishment whenever I write.  I love to write because it makes me feel invincible like superman flying high with my words where all the dreams are possible. I love to write because I feel like a mother giving birth to a newborn baby whenever I write/create something new ; the universe cease to exist. And at the same time I feel like this new born baby taking his first deep breath, soaking in the atmosphere knowing he/she’s alive.

Sometimes, writing can be a quest for self-discovery, that’s why I write mainly for myself and for my sense of existence. I love the following quote by Charles Bukowski:

“Writing keeps you alive because it eases the monsters in the brain by moving them to paper”.

Writing helps you eliminate any feelings of sorrow, regret, anger, stress, or guilt. All those bad feelings can be washed away when you start picking up your pen and start writing.  Writing can serve as vehicle for expressing and sharing our experiences with others. You never know who you might affect with your writing; for all you know your writing can light someone’s darkness.
