I Learned

In the adventure that is: life, lessons are so important, we only live once so we try hard enough to make it work, try so badly to make it happen, we work, we fight, we struggle, we fall, we Learn, and we stand up again…Life is a beautiful gift, it’s the most amazing blessing that Allah gave you, look around you, look at yourself, don’t you see? You’re a miracle, despite everything you did, all mistakes you made; you’re still here, alive. So I won’t tell you how to live, I want you to learn how to be thankful;

Every living human being, thinks, he believe, he work, he searches, he find, but what makes us different are our interests, I may love science, you may prefer music, another one may love acting, that’s what makes life interesting, again, we find to ourselves another belief in common, we all want to change the world in our way, we all want to leave our print somewhere, somehow, we want it so badly, that we’re ready to do anything for it, don’t we??

Well, all those kind of thoughts, feelings, emotions keeps us alive, whether, we do it or not, whether we achieve our dreams or not, whether you win or lose you’re still alive, so if you did it congratulation, you made it to your next level, it becomes you new starting point, be thankful to Allah, to those who helped you, to those who inspired you, to yourself; fix new goal, new level to reach, new dreams to achieve…

If you didn’t then it’s ok, it’s not the end of the world nor your death, be thankful, stand up again, work for it again, dream again, love again, SMILE, cause it worth, cry if you want to, but only if it boost you up, then jump, don’t be afraid of falling, cause you fell, and nothing happed…

To change the world you need to change your way of looking at the world. Things happened that may changes us, but sometimes we change ourselves, so we don’t quiet, so we avoid failure, so we can be happy, but we always need to be thankful, it’s why we live, it’s why we dream, it’s why we’re here…

From failing, I learned to be thankful, I learned to enjoy my life, whether it’s in the best moments, or the worst, I learned how to look back, I learned to love every moment, I learned to live as It’s my last day to live, I learned to give without waiting for return, I learned how can I win, I learned not to be afraid, I learned that a smile can change a life, I learned how to stand up after falling, I learned how to take care of myself, I learned how to be alone, I learned how to work, how to dream, and most important how to be thankful…

There comes a time when each one of us look back, try to realize where he is in his life, try to find out what did he achieved, and in which level he is; at this point, we can be pretty hard on ourselves, we can blame time, blame others for our failures, blame what we call causes, but what hurts most is when we blame ourselves for failing, the difference between a thankful person, and a non thankful person at this point, is that the thankful would smile, while the other one cries…

The smile doesn’t really mean that he’s done everything he wanted to and did nothing wrong in his life, it doesn’t mean that he achieved all his dreams without falling, it certainly doesn’t mean that he’s a saint, it only means that he doesn’t regret anything, and if he had to start his life all over again, he would’ve done the same things; funny right, he doesn’t care about his mistakes, about what he did wrong, isn’t he stupid much? Personally, I don’t think so, I think that he’s great, he’s a thankful person, and all what he believes in; is that everything happen for a reason, so the cause of this life he’s living, is not only the good choices and the hard work, it’s also the bad choices, the failures and the depressions…

So all what we can wish for in our lives is living it with no regrets, enjoying every moment of it, living by the edge is what makes the difference; sanding up after falling, fighting back until the last drop of blood in the veins, is, what makes a man great, so standup be inspired and be great.
After all, success is the good fortune that comes from: aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration…

Journey of life

Journey of life

By: Rihab Ch.

An engineer who is going to change the world and make it a better place.

A Brilliant writer and an amazing artist.

And not less than a great warrior.

 

It was a big road; I walked there for days,

Weeks, months, I walked there since always,

Lot of turns, crossroads, a weird way,

Just like the journey of life

Of course I wasn’t alone; I wanted to know others,

There were lots of people and none walked in the same way,

So I continued walking straight

But doubt came, anyway,

I didn’t knew what I was doing here,

Even less where to go,

But, in that road, with time,

I had lots of meetings,

Great things happened to me,

I really have to tell you,

Those characters I met are not really human,

You can talk to, but never touch them

The first I met on my journey was innocence

A very gentle nice being, but who didn’t really have an experience, we walked together for a while,

But soon I met other elements, and innocence went away,

A moment on my way I met sports, a physical guy with lots of muscles with whom you become strong, For technical reasons I had to go, but eventually, it’s better like this, cause sport make aches,

Then I me poetry with her pretentious air, she claimed that with words, we can cross the world, I said, we’ve already met, and frankly you don’t worth it, we talked about you at school, And you looked really stupid,

But poetry insisted, caught me with other ways, so I knew that she was cool and we can exceed its limits, I said can we stay together, I can’t live without you, she said don’t worry, the world belongs to dreamers,

Then I met distress but, she has plenty of confidence, and was full of tension, we talked quickly then I pushed her away,

But you know what; misery is not a conversation…

A moment in my way, I met love, I said great to see you I’ve always wanted to talk to you, in the absolute, you’re a good idea but in reality you’re not, you never stay, you need to work on your formula, he said listen kid, since forever I’ve worked this way, I always want to stay, but humans make no effort, and I’m not a magician anyway, we stopped talking for a while , so I realized love was great, despite his arrogance ,

He said that he have a lot of meetings, he advised me to always believe, then he turned and went away,

I was so glad to meet him, it’s a fact, and I do feel that someday we’ll meet again,

Later on my path I met tenderness, what remains of love after the barriers that time draws, then, I met nostalgia, the bride of memories that we candle lit ,

I met faith who light up my way, and still until this day guiding through and helping me up

Soon enough on my journey I met friendship, and to this day she still walk with me side by side, and after all that friendship will always be my best friend,

I met the future but it was very mysterious, with a deformed voice and a mask over his eyes, there was no way to know him better, he left me no lead,

I don’t know what he looks like, but at least I know that he exist

I met few pains, I met lot of joy, sometime it’s a matter of luck, often a matter of choice, it’s doesn’t surprise so far, but every day, I keep on learning the secrets of my way

It was a big road; I walked there for days,

Weeks, months, I walked there since always,

Lot of turns, crossroads, a weird way, just like the journey of life

So the most important lessons are:

first: never cry on the past, it doesn’t worth it, and you should live in the present that would be better, learn from your own experiences, but try not to make the same mistake twice, just like I did,

second: you can change when you need to, but try to do it for the best, Allah won’t change people unless they decide to, that gives everyone a chance to repair their lives, believe in yourself, and do it, cause none would believe in you if you stay that way.

Third: life is a beautiful experience, but not to waste it, hang on to the ones you love most, stay with them, and love them with all you’ve got. Follow your heart, that’s a good way to start so you won’t regret it,

fourth: keep your head up no matter what, you might lost a fight, but not the battle, give yourself the chance that none is giving you, prove that you’re not the coward they think you are, let them see how stung you are, if you don’t believe in yourself, none will

fifth: smile, even when everything goes wrong, a smile would give the strength to carry on and keep on living, a smile is the happiness generator, so that must be it: the key of happiness’s door

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life

Can you?

It’s not easy as you think. We spend a lot of time working on something and we learned how to procrastinate enjoying our times till we end what we working on. For example till we buy that thing and till we finish exams and so on…

And that’s an unbelievable waste. Since happiness is a journey and not a destination but a journey we have to learn how to enjoy the journey and not wait the destination.

Strat Doing What You Love

Before you sleep, think of a TO-DO list for tomorrow, and imagine that you will change your entire life. Think and write all what you want to change. The next day start doing what you love. There is no too late 😉

Every single moment is your best time to change your life. So if you really want to change something in your life, the next moment is the best time for this. And know this, when you plan too much, you are planning not to do a thing. Just start and no matter how small your first step is, you will realize later that it was the most important.

And living your life as you love is not easy. But it’s not hard too. You just have to remember  to do things you love, and that’s what most of us forget. Write down the things you love and make sure that you do some of them every single day. You will not believe how many things we love and forget to enjoy them in every day of our lives.

Waste no more time and START DOING WHAT YOU LOVE.

Einstein

”There exists a passion for comprehension, just as there exists a passion for music. That passion is rather common in children, but gets lost in most people later on. Without this passion, there would be neither mathematics nor natural science”

Albert Einstein

 

I love that passion 🙂
