I’M BEGGING YOU TO READ! this is important :)

NO NO I couldn’t wait till 12 pm!

So here I’m trying to sort out my ideas and organize them so I could REALLY get to you this time. I’M REALLY INSPIRED. I’m really writing my heart out, I’m not keeping a thing for myself this time!

 

So here’s the story; enahrdah kont fy event zeyara l dar mosenen fy masr elgededa esmo elsafa, elmosenen ely henak byb2a weladhom msh 2adren y-take care of them fa bydfa3olhom kol shahr mabla3′ 3shan ye3odo henak. Some receive visits from their families , and some are totally abandoned.

b 3’ad elnazar eny kont balef w msh a3da m3 7ad wa7ed, fel a5er karart arou7 a3od m3 el7aga “3azeza” 3shan she really grabbed my attention; i thought that she was too freaking cute to sit alone.

 

hafselko 3n elkesa sawany w a2ol eny de AWL MARA arou7 dar mosenen w kont 5ayfa m3rfsh at3amal – like most of ely kano gayen. (zay belzabt elbenten ely awl mara ashfhom fy 7ayaty la2ethom wa2fen m7taren kda fa ro7t b kol besata wana m3rfsh 7ad fehom w i opened a conversation w fel a5er entahena en homa msh 3rfen yet3amlo fa ana basat elmawdo3 w 2oltelhom shyfen elset ely henak de, mafesh atyab menha, she won’t say much fa i guess this is a good start for you both; they smiled and went to her…. I was thanked fy a5er elyom (: )


elmohem ro7t a3dt m3aha w a3dt as2alha 3ala awladha w a7fadha, and I could see a spark of happiness in her little pretty eyes. she was laughing on every word I said. she didn’t have much to say to me, but i insisted to just sit there with her. And in a split of a second as I was staring her way; i found tears about to run down my cheek, I excused myself quickly and went for a walk.

This has never ever happened to me. EVER!

I returned with a biggest smile on my face back to her, made her drink her juice and I said goodbye because it was getting late and I had to leave. And after I did, I came back again just to have a photo with her. I asked her If i could have a photo with her, and she’s like ” ah ya 7abebty tb3an etfadali” and then the lady next to her ” wana kaman 3yza atsawar”. I took the two photos and ran to the stairs so no one would know that I was about to crack up again!!

 

That was my story.

 

I’ll also have to share some of my friend’s stories. 5 menhom kano a3den m3 set; 7afza elqur2an sam MSA. kant bt7eky ezay lama yekono 3yzen yetlobo 7aga, ye2olo do3a2 eh. she was dictating one of them. She was so happy she could actually tell this to someone other than herself. kant fe3ln 3yza tefdhom b kol ely 3ndaha.

 

Another story: of a man who came into the nursing home recently. After I heard from the lady in charge there that he is too depressed to do anything, I told two of my friends to have a little chit chat with him; not knowing if they will succeed in getting to him or not. After a while I saw them increasing to 4, and then to my surprise I found them heading to his room that was full of people; around 7 were sitting with him. He was cool again. (:

 

I could tell you a bunch of other stories, but You’ll never know how it feels until you see for yourself.

All they need is someone to show them that they care, even for a hour or two.

 

so to whoever is afraid to take this step, I’m begging you to do it! it’s worth it. Totally worth it!

w eza kan dah eleffect beta3hom 3alaya men sa3ten bas, I wonder how will they feel today. I’m sure they will hold onto this day forever (:

Ana fe3lan msh 3rfa a2oloko eh,  bas ana katba elpost dah msh 3shan a2ol eny 3mlt, bas fe3lan I couldn’t keep this to myself abadan!

elnas henak msh bygelhom zeyarat keter, da5ltna 3alehom kant bel donia, kol shewaya 7ad ys2al hatego tany emta!

 

fa this is a note to myself w anyone who bothered to read this till the end, life isn’t about the new car and haircut, about the latest mobile and latest fashion style. There IS MORE!. I’m not saying don’t enjoy your life, la2eno mahma kan brdo de hatb2a ehtemamat b3d menena, I’m just saying that YOU should pay your debt to the society.

 

Finally,

W law 7ad interested fy any coming events, let me know so I could keep you updated isA.

From a personal experience.

Cheering people up might need a bit of talent -I think. But what I’m sure of is, that it definitely takes a lot of effort to get to people; to know what to say, how and when.

 

But showing that you care might be a lot more easier- I know we sometimes fail to do that right.

You know like the situations where we have a dear close friend in trouble, and we really DO care but we just didn’t get the chance to show it; we fail our and their expectations!

And also we’ve all gone through these situations where we have a dear friend who is down due to stuff happening to them, and we just couldn’t cheer them up.

 

So to whoever is thinking that THIS makes them a bad friend, I think (my personal opinion) it’s not about the help you offer, it’s more of the care you have inside/show.

I’ve been off mood lately and my mind is driving me crazy,and I’m starting to think  it’s affecting the flow of ideas. Just a thought!

A status of interest!

Do you ever get that feeling where you don’t want to talk to anybody? You don’t want to smile and you don’t want to fake being happy. But at the same time you don’t know exactly what’s wrong either.

 

There isn’t a way to explain it to someone who doesn’t already understand.

If you could want anything in the world it would be to be alone. People have stopped being comforting and being along never was. At least when you’re alone no one will constantly ask you what is wrong and there isn’t anyone who won’t take ‘I don’t know’ for an answer.

You feel the way you do just because. You hope the feeling will pass soon and that
you will be able to be yourself again, but until then all you can do is
wait.

 

 

This is a status I came across; so yes it’s copied, but If i wanted to express myself, I wouldn’t have phrased it in a better way.

What could have been if ..

Today, I payed the GUC a visit with two of my best friends. This was the first time I went there after I decided am not going to go through with the registration anymore and that I’m applying for the faculty of economics and political science in Cairo university. After I spent my whole senior year at school taking the replacement tests there, and almost payed the fees for the first semester, my Life took a HUGE TURN; my grades actually got me into one of the top faculties in the country -as it’s said.

I walked through the halls wondering how would my life be, if today was just my normal day.

Of course I didn’t have the answer to that question, but I had another answer for a totally different question. Oh yes I’m definitely happy with the place I ended up at, I couldn’t be more grateful for the friends I’ve made, the things I learned, and the activities I got into.

I know that we humans always complain, and yeah I do that too. I complain a lot from my college- you still haven’t seen it yet, but that doesn’t mean that at the end of the day when I get to sleep, I smile for having the chance to live this life.

 

 

I’m thankful el7amdolellah. Even though right now at this moment, I want to break something or even kill somebody, but I know I’ll wake up okay tomorrow isA. (:

 

Good night everybody (:

Broken promises.

Why do people make promises they can’t keep?

 

 

 

Oh I remember, because talking is easy and cheap!

 

 

If you don’t mean something, then simply do not say it! JUST DON’T!

 

It might seem sweet and romantic at the moment, but later on, it’s only going to hurt them.

If you love that person, you owe them that much.

Gravity happens..

I’ll leave you today with the lyrics of a song from my recent favorites. It kind of shows you that it is okay to fall, because unless that happens you’ll never know how to stand up again, you’ll never know what’s right and wrong. It’s okay to fall.

“Gravity Happens”

If your travels ever take you to sea
Then I’d say to you to dip in your feet
And if you battle the wind along the way
Then I’d tell you to challenge the waves

It’s a world of peculiar people
And places that look nothing like home
But it keeps turning – and turning even though

Gravity happens…
And we don’t know it till after we’ve hit the ground
The world’s spinning faster
With each day that passes and each dashing hour
What am I to do? I’ve broken my parachute
So if gravity happens, then I’ll fasten wings to my shoes

I have gathered that the moments that shaped me
Were the ones that have tested my faith
And all that matters is the courage they gave me
I fell down and my fears were erased

‘Cause in the wreckage of heartache and hindsight
A new beginning starts to unfold
And if you let it, it just might save your life

Because gravity happens…
And we don’t know it till after we’ve hit the ground
The world’s spinning faster
With each day that passes and each dashing hour
What am I to do? I’ve broken my parachute
So if gravity happens, then I’ll fasten wings to my shoes

I’m not gonna let the world get me down, no
I got so much more to live for
And I’m starting right now

Cause gravity happens…
And we don’t know it till after we’ve hit the ground
The world’s spinning faster
With each day that passes and each dashing hour
What am I to do? I’ve broken my parachute
So if gravity happens, then I’ll fasten wings to my shoes

Charity gives you clarity (:

Driving on “elda2ery” for more than half an hour gave me the chance to just stare at the cars and think about nothing! but then while I’m sitting by the window starring, I caught myself saying “ana nefsy akaras nafsy l 3amal el5eer” ALL OF A SUDDEN with a slightly loud voice.

 

I love charity work, and how it revolves around putting people first, even for a day. And how it’s mainly about the fact that YOU wanna be the reason of SOMEONE else’s smile (:. THAT’S SOMETHING! (:

So this year, I have a great opportunity to do so, as some of you might know, I’m head one for all committee in a student activity in our faculty (imEU). It’s a committee that plans charity work and events through out the year. And I really can’t wait for us to start isA! (:

 

So I sincerely hope that when I dip myself into charity work, Hopefully I’ll find a meaning to my life. I’ll be a part of something bigger than me. Because now you’re unselfish enough to make some time for others, not only for yourself.

 

Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all you heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours. – Dale Carnegie

 

And as I always say, I believe in the magic of a smile, but when it’s a smile of a needy person, It means even more! And we could all learn something for that- BE THANKFUL for every little thing. While you’re nagging about not having for example various kinds of something, other people are just hoping for a single kind of that something!

 

And as they say ” ely yeshof balwet 3’ero, tehon 3aleh balweto”. Even though I didn’t see much, but I thank God because I know that what’s actually out there, is even beyond anyone’s imagination!

 

So as not to leave you wandering after you read this topic, here’s a link to an event. It’s a visit to a nursery home.  Please take the time to check out: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=224972924223147

And feel free to ask me about any more details 🙂

Kelma mn elmo2alef 3shan ma7shoren fy zory!! haha 😀 : ana bgd msh ba2ol elkalam dah 3shan akne3ko ento tego elevent aw whatever, bas ana fe3lan moktane3a en elwa7ed lama yesed 7aget 3’ero, this is what community is all about! eno fy nas needy w nas m3aha t-give elneedy. to me that’s a kind of RESPONSIBILITY! I know we’re not that obliged to do so, but in a way WE ARE!

3shan kda wala kda elnas de fy mogtama3na, by not helping, it’s like you’re allowing them to PULL the whole community downwards. You wanna have a better a society, start from down there! They are so close to being the majority in our society. I think we should ACT!

 

and don’t start with the useless talk about how a single person can’t do anything! Every human being is born to do something, I know that for sure. And every person CAN do a change if he WANTS to.

 

C’mon people, act (:!

 

W isA I’ll be updating you about more events coming soon isA.

 

Good night =]
