To each and every one of you out there, to the people who are stressed over work, college, friends, family, and the list goes on and on.

it doesn’t really matter what you’re stressed over, what concerns me more is that you are wasting the joy of the journey, whining over things you can’t change -sometimes-, and if you could, then why don’t you NOW?! got a solution, implement it right away.

I mean worrying doesn’t solve a problem, thinking does. even taking actions work as well.

spot the problem, think about it, and ACT, do your best, give it all you have, and then leave it up to God, he will do the best for you. And remember, it doesn’t necessarily have to fit YOUR plan.

316/317/318/319/320 – And in a world gone silent, I’ll be your sound

“Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.”

When the whole world is clearly trying to tell you that today isn’t your day. when you’re knocked down on your knees. when your voice shakes, and you forget all the meaningful words. when you scream, but no one even looks your way. When the whole world goes wrong, when it all comes crumbling down, and when you finally decide to let go and cry your heart out, I will be here. I will hold you to sleep. I will hug you until you are complete again. I will shut the whole world out, and sing you to sleep. I will be here when you’re in mess. I will be here when you decide to leave the pieces scattered all over the floor, although you know it’s hurting everyone around.

 

And when the whole world awaits for you to come back and fight again, don’t rush.

 

I will stand up for you, and be your sound..

What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?

 

Ummm, I don’t know where to start honestly. But I will tell you this.

 

I don’t think I can magically change hate into love, I can’t push someone to call their ex-best friend and make it all okay, I can’t make someone act in a kind way all the time. But, I can do this, I can change the way people look at certain stuff, I can change their perspective. I can make them realize that the smallest things they don’t like about their life, are the big things someone else wishes for. I can show them that not all people are the same, and that optimism is the key to living a more successful life.

I can try and send them messages, in the easiest way possible.

I can try and ” teach ” them to listen to others, tolerance is the key to a peaceful life.

 

And finally, I can try and show them why is it that important that everyone has to struggle to make his own dreams come true, to do what they really love.

I started this blog because I was inspired by a friend, she showed me that one person can make a difference, a small one maybe, but it counts.

I hope one day, someone believes that too, and sets out on a mission of achieving something bigger than both of us.

 

 

I wish you all well : )

Stay happy : )

“Tell us about something you’ve done that you would advise a friend never to do.”

 

Don’t quit your favorite sport for anything in the world, unless it’s a major injury, god forbid.

Don’t quit it because you have to take secondary private lessons, or because your mom doesn’t like the sport that much.
And, don’t let the fear of being inadequate hold you back from trying new stuff!

All professionals you see right now, were beginners one day..

The day is over. My favorite day of the whole year is over. But luckily my favorite month isn’t! 😀

The day turned out to be lovelier than what I had in mind.

Multiple surprises from very dear people, very unexpected phone calls, tremendous amount of posts/messages/whatsapp, I’m over the mooon : )

And let’s not forget the dedication on nile FM from my best friend = )

 

bottom line, I am blessed to have these people in my life. Really.

 

And now, a message from me, to me! ” the 20-year-old me”,

I’ve waited so long for that number to come along, although I never really believed that age has a direct relation with how a person thinks and acts – I mean not always, but apparently people do. So now that I’m officially not a teenager anymore -age wise, I promise not to act as one anymore as well.

 

I expect me to be more giving, more considerate, more logical, and a little bit smarter when it comes to dealing with people.

I think I’m setting on my way of changing the world. “yeah I know, too sees for anyone, but I don’t really care”

 

another thing that I want you to always remember, you have amazing friends, people that you can truly depend on. please give them some space. Please depend on them from time to time, you don’t have to do everything on your own.

Because those who stuck around after all the shit they have seen from you, will never mind to see the vulnerable side of you.

And even if they did mind, what’s the big deal? we’re all vulnerable, we’re just too egoistic to admit it.

 

I wish you well. I wish you happiness, self satisfaction and great achievements.

You’re supposedly graduating this year, please be up to it.

I love you, and I wish you a very good night : )

Smile.

And love yourself a bit more. You deserve it.

You’ve earned it..

Thank you world, thank you for treating me well today.

And I promise I won’t have high expectations, but please, please keep them coming!

Write a letter to your 14-year-old self.

 

Dear 14-year-old Noha,

If I recall correctly, at that time you were finishing your preparatory stage and into the secondary. At that time you had a bunch of the best best friends ever, you thought you’d forever be friends. You used to cry a lot over being the only child. And you used to love your cat more than anything.

You believed that dreams can and will come true, and that you’d grow up to be someone inspiring. You believed in humor and love.

You thought your mom never understood you. And that your dad is being unfair because he is constantly shouting over you not studying, which something you utterly hated at that time.

You tried to live your life to the fullest, you were trying to be awesome and cool.

 

But you failed.

Because at that time, when all girls were thinking about their first crush, you were thinking about your career.

When they were dying to meet new boys, you were wishing so bad you could grow up so you could blend in more with your family and they’d think of you as someone that can be depended on.

When they were all about clothes and new styles, you stuck to your sweat pants and pony tail and thought that personality mattered more.

 

But, to be honest and fair, I know that when they all thought school was bad, you believed it would be the best of your days. When they thought life is easy, you knew they’d be obstacles, but it would always be worth the fight. You knew stuff, huge stuff at that time.

You always tried to remember that life is short and it moves on.

You were smarter than half of the people around you.

You looked at stuff the same way I still look at them now, in a very logical way.

Your thinking was always ahead of you. People’s first impression had nothing to do with what they thought about you after they have finished a real talk with you. I was proud of you. And still am. You paved the way for me to be an independent, outgoing, funny, loving, helpful 20-year-old girl.

You were the transitional state, you were, are, will always be the reason I am who I am today.

You were such a sweet-heart : )

Thank you.

 

Yours truly,

your 20-year-old self.
