It’s so hard to see your own flaws. We always see our good qualities and keep highlighting those, who wouldn’t. But sometimes you just need to pause for a second and judge yourself.
I believe my worst quality is … thinking too much about everything which actually drains my energy. I give thinking more time that it deserve. Instead I could be doing much more stuff!
I have learned that anything that already happened doesn’t deserve to take any of my time because thinking about it won’t change it.
You can’t change yesterday or think of tomorrow, you can only live today

A couple of years ago I realized that one of the things that gives me peace and keeps me calm is reading. The enjoyment of reading a story and living within it is absolutely priceless. Reading made me look at things with a different perspective.
The last book I read was “Adultery” by Paulo Coelho, needless to say that he is an amazing writer and he is very descriptive. I enjoyed reading this book so much and it helped me realize that no one’s life is perfect, but its attitude towards your lifestyle is what matters.

So many things in my life come this close to working out but eventually they don’t. At this very moment when this happens, I am overly frustrated but after I calm down and think clearly I realize that maybe it was for the best!
It was when I graduated and I was this close to work in a big advertising agency that I interned at before and everything was almost perfect until I moved out of the country to a totally new country. I had to start from scratch. I had to post my resumes all over the websites and starting looking for internships again. It took me a hell of a time to do that but eventually it worked out and I found a job.

It must feel so good to have power over anything. What if we had the power to rewrite history! What would we choose to rewrite?
I am sure that I would have changed a lot of things. Things that happened in the world that I wish I could stop. I would have stopped wars and killings of innocent people. I would have changed lots of things in my personal life and took different decision. I wouldn’t have changed where I live or how I lived. I would have stood up for a lot of ideas I had and never had the right chance to apply them or even discuss them with anyone.
It would have been great if we had a time machine that helped us to go back in time and change any situation we would like to change. But reality check, we can’t do that!
Maybe we should enjoy more what we have and continue living spontaneously and not try to change our past but rather build our own future!
I hope 2015 would be a happy year for everyone. Hope each and everyone could plan their own year and be satisfied with the outcome.
I hate lies more than I hate anything else. I don’t believe that there are big lies and small lies, a lie is a lie. Why would someone lie about anything? You should accept all the consequences of anything you do or say.
The only lie that I could tell to people is telling them “I am fine” when I am really not. And I believe that’s the only lie that would be acceptable. Why would I let people know how I really feel? They wouldn’t do anything to change it so why bother!
So many intolerable results for lying. It will make you lose people and more importantly lose yourself!
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly writing challenge: “Countdown.”
This post will be about the top 10 things that I want to have/change by beginning of 2015. We all have a certain list in our minds that we wish we could accomplish but sometimes that are so many external factors that prevent us from doing that. I am pretty determined to do everything on my list this time!
10.Become more optimistic regarding everything that is happening to me.
9.Reading more books since that is one of the things that relax me the most.
8.Meeting new people.
7.Finding a good job at a big company that would appreciate my skills and talents.
6.Apply for a MBA.
5.Teaching myself to enjoy more of what I have before I lose any of it.
4.Traveling to at least 2 of the countries that I wish to visit.
3.Work out more and lose some weight (maybe 2 lbs lol)
2.Creating new memories with the people I truly LOVE.
1.To be Happy!
Are you always pressured to live a life that you never imagined to live? Are you doing things everyday that you don’t want to do? Do you have a crappy job? Do you support people who will never support you back ever? Do you drive a car that barely move?
Why are we always pressured?
We should live a life that we choose with circumstances that we create. We should love our daily routines and enjoy the company of the people surrounding us. We should think of what satisfies us not what satisfies others. We should not be forced to do anything that we don’t want to do.
Live a life that you would never regret and live each day as if it is your last. Never allow other people or situations drive you. Don’t waste your time or energy with people that will never lift you up and would put you down instead. Surround yourself with everything you are fond of. Choose a job that shows your skills and talents rather than one that would let you hate each and every day of your life. Be brave enough to join the conversation and say your opinion.
Live Happy & Healthy!
(Read my top post “Thanksgiving Day“)
There are so many times when my head is full of thoughts that I just wish I can express in words. I keep on keeping those feelings inside me but I always ask myself the same questions “Till When?”. Why is it that I have to say how I feel to make others know how I feel? I stay silent hoping that I could be understood.
A smile on my face is always hiding a pain that I try so hard to let go of. Just trying to set more goals and plan more plans that would distract me of the real feeling I am trying to escape from. Sometimes escaping is the only solution when you can’t change the situation.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Never Too Late.”
Today is a day to be thankful for things in your life. It took me a minute to realize what I want to be thankful for since it was a rough year for me. But the first thing that I wanted to be thankful for is being healthy since we take our health for granted but it’s not! Another thing that I want to be thankful people who stood by me and supported me through my ups and downs (they know who they are). They made me feel special and that I am capable of doing almost everything. They listened to all of my complaints and thoughts carefully. I can’t possibly live without them!
