Boundaries

A smart man once said ” we are limited by our boundaries”

Love life despite its obstacles,  appreciate yourself, and don’t forget to let go every once in a while 😉

Contemplating Life

image

Just wanted to share this picture with you. It was a sunny weekend and the weather was fantastic!

I was physically exhausted but  when I reached Lago di Martignano, I felt energized and alive 🙂

Sometimes, being away from the crowd and contemplating life in a peaceful, beautiful area, gives you perspective on life. We all need that to prioritize our time, ourselves, and our lives. Once we achieve that, we become unstoppable!

A wise man once said

“everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Image

This semi-autobiography book easily became one of my favorite inspiring novel of all time! It is so inspiring and motivating to the point where it puts everyone “claiming to have a hard life” to shame. Alexie meshes tragedy with comedy and takes you through this emotional journey of  a struggling native indian teenager’s life, and obstacles (bullying, racisim, etc) he goes through to escape his world.

The book has its tragic moments where you instantly fall in love with Junior, the Native Indian teenager, however, it has its comedic moments too. I will not get into details but I STRONGLY recommend you read this book. You will not regret it.

Even though I know the novelist will not read my blog, however, I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for inspiring me to be a better version of myself.

Writing a diary is HEALTHY!

Today at work, my colleagues and I had a very interesting discussion about writing diaries. One of my colleagues stated that it was healthy to write down your emotions for various reasons. Hours later, I decided to google some information on diaries, and I can gladly confirm that YES it is healthy to own/ write a diary.

Apparently, writing your feelings down releases some sort of stress and tension from your brain. As a consequence, most diseases that comes from bottling up your emotions, like depression disappears. Writing assists with regulating emotions unintentionally.

My advice of the day is keep writing! and for those who don’t write, START writing. Life is too short to be depressed 😉

Quote of the day!

“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.” – Vince Lombardi

Basically, the message of the day is DO NOT QUIT. Only you can hold yourself back from achieving whatever you plan to achieve. It has been a while since l last posted something. I thought of sharing one of my favourite quotes with you 🙂

Ps. I apologize for not posting book reviews as I have been busy with studying Italian language, however, I am currently reading an interesting book. Can’t wait to share my thoughts with you 🙂

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Few months ago, a friend of mine suggested that I should read Life of PI. Looking at the cover of the book, I felt discouraged.

This book is a fantasy adventure novel, written by Yann Martel, a Canadian author. It started off slowly. Since I had no idea what was the book about, I was distracted a couple of times, up to the point where the author introduced religions to the lead character “Pi”. I loved how the author tackled religions’ issues in a respectable manner. I thought the book was going to revolve around Pi and his beliefs in the three religions (Hindu, Christianity, and Islam) but it was not.

The most interesting part of the book was the adventure part, where Pi gets stuck with the animals. Martel successfully managed to grab my attention as he describes Pi’s struggle to survive.

At times, it felt as if the author was stretching the storyline when it could have been short yet dazzling.

As a positive person, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Life of Pi. I admire Martel for using faith as a source of survival.

Can’t wait to see the movie!

Since the house is on fire, let us warm ourselves!

“Since the house is on fire, let us warm ourselves” ~ Italian Proverb

Love it. It speaks loudly to our current situation in Kuwait.  Since politics is nothing but a headache, I will not go politics on you.

This proverb is applicable to our daily lives. Everyone has issues and problems to deal with, however, most people prefer to complain and nag instead of take action. Taking advantage of whatever situation you are facing could make you stronger as an individual. That individual could inspire you to develop yourself to an extent where you see the positive sides in every situation.

No matter how dark your days can be, always remember that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Let your burning house be your bonfire 😉
