Simply ME...

A star or a rainy cloud,,, realistic or a dreamer,,, tough or emotional,,, a butterfly or a dolphin,,, it is all about me reflecting the transparent me!

I find it easier to write things than to say them, or to translate them into action. I find it easier to send someone a card, or a message that expresses how I feel rather than giving them a hug or a kiss.
Especially with family & friends. I find it hard to tell them how important they are or how grateful I am for their support and love, however I can write pages of sincere emotional words and tender sentences.

Today I believe I made a big improvement and I feel so good about it. It took me a while to be able to give this tearful long hug, and surprisingly now I feel much better. It feels as though a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders.. As if with that hug I let go of a heavy burden.

Family are always there/ should be there, I know. But still, I believe we can't take them for granted. We can't keep the abusing and they can't keep the forgiving and understanding. We can't test their patience by increasing the meanness, unkindness and ungratefulness. And today I expressed how grateful I am and how sorry I am for all of that. I feel so great that I was able to do it.. I don't want to live for a day when I would regret not sharing my sincere appreciation and apology. It's hard to express those kind of emotions sometimes, but it's harder to regret not saying what you really feel and just take things for granted. Life might not give us a second chance.. so might as well, do it when it's possible.. when it's just not too late.

I am grateful & blessed for having the most wonderful parents on earth, and for having the greatest sisters ever. You can choose your friends, and you can choose who to keep in touch with, who to contact, who to just ignore and forget.. but you cannot choose your family. Everything can be changed and replaced, but not your family.
My family is the centre of my inner stability. I I look to them for strength, love & inspiration - I love you

    I'm very pleased to know that even in these times when people are very self centric, there are still people who know and appreciate their loved ones, Allah y'7leekom la ba3d

    When I look at myself, I realize how much I've missed with my loved ones and even how much I've wasted of these feelings on people who might not deserve it.

    Anonymous.. true sometimes we waste our feelings on people who might not deserve it. But you can look at it differently, and say they're not really wasted. Cause this will teach you to be more careful next time.. it's all about learning from our lessons and mistakes.
