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 😉

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 😉

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 😉

The Hidden Messages in Water by Dr. Masaru Emoto

Image

“The Hidden Messages in Water” sounded like a boring title to me. If it wasn’t for a friend of mine, I wouldn’t have even considered holding the book let alone read it but I’m glad I did.

Dr. Emoto effortlessly managed to convince me with visuals and simple words on how water is easily affected by human words, emotions, thoughts, music,,,, and well basically EVERYTHING. This book is filled with stunning illustrations of crystals (frozen water) taken from various locations, exposed to different environment, and different music. The results showed that (frozen water) crystals shine in a clean, positive environment and since we are made of about 70% water, we somehow react like water.

“Water has a message for the world: The world is linked together by love and gratitude.”- Dr. Masaru Emoto

The Hidden Messages in Water is an eye opener. It takes you to a new unexplored world of secrets. I highly recommend you this book.
