Embrace Change

As humans we all have developed some sort of a pattern in out lives. We have a stable life, a job, a proper routine and we follow it as rigorously as we we would follow exam rules. But is a routine always a good thing? Moreover is Stability a good thing?

In my opinion, having a stable life is okay as long as things don’t get stagnant like water in lake. Stability can be a curse and blessing, and at times it helps more to break out of the usual day in and day out routine.

People nowadays, I’ve noticed have become very content with their daily lives and they do little to spice it up or create some excitement. I, for one, cannot follow a routine for more than a week so I try to bring about as much change as I can in the limited options I have.

But even those little things like changing the layout of your room, or changing the curtains or changing your own appearance for that matter can bring about a big difference, without which I would’ve probably suffocated by now.

As a teen, taking risks and trying something new without facing any long term life-altering consequences is a advantage you have. Don’t get tied down to one career or one life path or anything for that matter. Keep your options open and when change knocks, welcome it happily and embrace it, because before you know it, change wouldn’t be a frequent visitor and even if it does come later in your life, it will be more difficult for you to accept it.

And remember if you don’t have the heart to make big changes, start small, make small changes in your life. Change your hair color or change the position of the vase in your living room or re-paint your room. And always stay positive.

Miley Cyrus: Twerk, Tongue, Trash.

I watched the VMA’s a few days ago but I seemed to have missed Miley’s and Robin Thicke’s performance. But the next morning I was reading the newspaper and I see an article that said talked about Justin Timberlake’s reaction to Miley’s performance and many other articles about her new hobby of sticking out her tongue and ‘twerking’.

Now, I honestly had no clue what twerking meant but after watching the video for ‘We can’t Stop’, I could pretty much guess it was a sexual step. So I watched her performance with Robin Thicke and there was only one thing on my mind. Disgust.

I felt violated and disgusted at Miley. This girl who I once looked up to. This was the same girl who wrote ‘The Climb’; this was the song that kept me hoping every time I fell down. And here she was dancing and doing things like a (I hate to say it) sl*t. I couldn’t believe this was the same girl from Hannah Montana, that she was the same girl who sang ‘Butterfly Fly away’. What would her dad say now after he saw such a performance?
I’m sure he’d be very proud.

Also her video ‘We Can’t Stop’, I didn’t pay attention to it before, but I saw a video where this guy said that the video was basically promoting drug use, and when I watched the official music video, I just wanted to throw up literally. Is this what our you get generation is going to grow up watching? If it is, then I can say they are already doomed.

As for Justin Timberlake saying that it’s fine what she did because she is just doing it to show everyone that she’s grown up. I want to ask since when does ‘Growing Up’ mean taking off your clothes and doing stripper dance steps in mainstream media? Don’t kids, toddlers to be specific, run around without their clothes in public because they don’t have the sense yet to know about dignity or shame. So how does growing up relate to dancing around in your underwear?

I’m really very very disappointed in Miley. I really hope she realizes before it’s to late that this is not what the public expected of her and I’m sure most people would agree with me.

Oh and also, can someone please tell her to keep her Tongue IN her mouth?

Man, the greatest creation?

There have been times when I’ve sat and marveled at Man; such creative, intellectual beings. But recently there have also been a lot of those times when I’ve been disgusted at what people seem to call the most intelligent creatures created by God.
How selfish, immature, arrogant and hypocritical can we get? Is there any end to this?
Recently as I’ve started paying more attention to people around me, to what they say and what they behave like, I’ve made observations that most people; at least most people in my society and the current generation are actually a sorry excuse for human beings.

I recently met a girl who ranted about this apparent B*tch that everyone hated, but then when I see her Facebook, the same girl comments “omg, you’re so pretty babe, I’m miss you so much, call me ASAP” on the b*tchy girl’s picture. I was literally befuddled for a few minutes after that because I had just spent half an hour listening to her whine about the b*tch and here she was commenting on her picture like they were best buddies. I mean seriously wtf?!

I mean why can’t you simply hate a person ON and OFF their faces? If not for her sake, then at least for yours? Don’t people get tired of putting up fake facades and then taking them off and putting them on again? Isn’t it easier to simply leave it off?

Today’s man is literally defined by his social status. Before even you begin to tell anything about you to a person, he/she already has a preconceived idea about you depending on your social network profile. People judge you based on your pictures, or statuses. One wrong status, one wrong picture and there goes your life spiraling downwards. That’s how quick people are to judge without realizing that someone is judging them too, and that someone is judging all of us, and only He truly has the right to judge.

For me right now, the one true person, the only person who I trust outside my family with all my life is my best friend Sara. I can’t think of ever finding anyone so honest, caring, fun and unimaginably beautiful. So even though there may be a lot of phonies in my life, I’m glad to have her in my life, and I hope we all have at least that one person on whom we can trust no matter what.

One sided convos

I hate convos that go like

Me: blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
Friend: Hmm
Me: blah blah blah blah blah
Friend: K.
Me: blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
Friend: Nice
Me: BLAH BLAH
Friend: Hmm K.
Me: I honestly don’t think this is working
Friend: But we talk so much.

SERIOUSLY PEOPLE?!

I want to see what a person would do if I spoke to him face to face like that?

Think, Ponder, Take time

Feel like you’re constantly surrounded by people with not even a second to sit and think quietly.
For many it does get hard to find time for yourself and just sit and think about everything. Wanting to be alone at times is nothing to feel bad or weird about, in fact it is necessary to detach yourself from the world and put things in your perspective once in a while.

I make it a point to find time for myself. It’s my number one tip for staying sane in an insane world. I spend alteast one day in each month to find at least a few hours just by myself and just in my room.

I find that sitting on the beach just listening to the birds chirping, the waves coming in, the wind rustling the leaves and the distant but audible noise of the cars and people going about their daily jobs.

But getting back to the topic, I think it’s very important to find some quality alone time. So next time you feel like there’s too much going on and your brain may burst, take sow time out to sit and think about those things and organize your thoughts. Just like a closet, our brain too needs organizing and cleaning once in a while.

Life lately

I very rarely post about what’s going on in my life and that’s mainly because my life is pretty boring. But recently, things have got so much better; I have a job, I’m actually interested in what I’m studying, ๐Ÿ™‚ Life is perfect. But I’m not going to take it for granted because I know nothing stays the same forever and I know problems are lurking around the corner. I’m not pessimistic, I’m just trying to tell myself not to take anything or anyone for granted. I’m going to enjoy every minute of happiness, so I can fight the problems with all my strength.

Problems are an inevitable part of our lives. There isn’t a single person on this planet that doesn’t have a problem. And the funny thing is, I’m okay with problems. Not in some twisted way, but in a way that if I didn’t have problems, I wouldn’t have appreciated my good times. That’s mainly the reason why God gives us problems, He doesn’t want you to forget Him. He doesn’t need us, but He knows that we need Him and He doesn’t want us to forget that. We wouldn’t have problems of we just thanked God for everything ok out life. Instead, because the human nature is selfish, we only tend to remember God when we have a problem. Wouldn’t you feel bad if your child only came to you when he needed something? Then what about our Creator? Isn’t He bigger than our parents? Doesn’t He deserve more love and respect than our parents?

This is a reminder firstly to myself and then to everybody else, because I’m not perfect and I do tend to do exactly what I say not to. So I’m going to make sure that from today I thank Allah for all that He has given me and ask Him to forgive me for all that I have done wrong knowingly and unknowingly.
May God bless us all and may He forgive us.

Keep smiling ๐Ÿ™‚
Cheers

Pray for Boston

I want to share my deepest condolences for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. What happened was heinous and completely against the morals of humanity. Lets all have a moment of silence for all those who have suffered.

I would also like to remind you all to keep the people of Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan in your prayers. Like the victims of Boston, there are people in these places who are dying everyday.

Lets pray for humanity, for peace, for equality, for empathy and for justice.

Moving on

I'm moving on 
Leaving behind the pain and scars 
Making a fresh a new start 
Taking the reins 
Playing the games 
In this world of fame 
I will not forget my aims 
We might meet again 
But I won't be the same
and you'll have lost your chance 
All your efforts will be in vain 
Because now I'm truly moving on

An unexpected visitor

I opened my front door yesterday to go out and guess who walked in? This adorable little kitten! It was all wet and shivering from the rain outside and as soon as I opened the door he walked in and stood in the middle of the room. This was a seriously Aww! moment. ๐Ÿ˜›

ImageEven though he was a darling, he was also stinking, so we got him cleaned up and groomed and now all he does is sleep. ๐Ÿ˜› He’s currently sleeping on my lap with my left hand under his head ๐Ÿ˜› And we named him Silky, even though I would’ve preferred calling him Gucci, but alas, Silky it is.
