In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “That Stings!.”
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!
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!

I’ve never been a really good cook, I barely cook. Sometimes I wish I can cook delicious meals and invite everyone I know so they can try out what I did but that’s just a wish!
The one time I was really proud of myself actually was when I tried making crepes. I felt like I’m the best cook that could ever exist. Although it is one of the easiest deserts to make and I actually followed steps that I found online including pictures and a how-to video so it couldn’t been any easier.
The best thing about cooking is the sense of accomplishment that someone gets when they cook something and it turns out to be very tasty. Besides peoples compliments would definitely give more confidence.
(The picture is only a demonstration not what I actually did )
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cue the Violins.”
If my life was a movie, I am sure that it will have different soundtracks and never the same one. Some of the soundtracks would be a happy song and others would be really sad ones. But the main soundtrack of my life would definitely be “All By Myself” by Celine dion (I know it’s a sad song but I really love it). The main instruments used in my life if it was a movie would be the piano, violent and drums!
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sparkling or Still.”
A day off is honestly the only thing I’m looking forward to right now. A perfect day off for me would be both Sparkling & Still. I like to spend half of it just relaxing and literally doing nothing and talking to no one. Maybe watching TV and sometimes reading a book, which makes me very relaxed. Also, I would spend more time on my blog if I had a day off.
And the other half of my day I like to be all and about, going out and chilling with some friends where we can talk about how long and tiring our week was. Actually I would love to do some shopping too, who doesn’t like shopping? One of the favorite thing to do is relaxing by the beach beach I always imagine that my day off should be more than 24 hours because I always have no time for all the stuff I have in mind to finish.
