Detours by Deepali

There is something magical and even dreamlike about New York City at this time of the year. The crowds are large and jovial. Christmas spirit is everywhere. There is so much to see and do that is unique to this delightful holiday season when NYC becomes a winter wonderland.

A-ha, the window displays!! Boutiques and department stores across the city dress up for the season with their annual holiday displays.

Each store puts together beautifully designed windows to celebrate the season (as well as entice you into their store). They also turn the average walker on the street into a theater audience 🙂

The holiday shops at Bryant Park and in Union Square are great places to pick up handmade stuff. And the Grand Central Holiday fair held inside the Grand Central Terminal transforms a simple train ride into a unique Christmas experience.

Rockefeller Center Plaza is of course the Capital of NYC Christmas…

Thoughts #2 ( join the “Forever Alone Club ” )


I’ve written this in Arabic :

نعم لست قادرة بعد علي فهم الكلمة الساحرة و قوتها و قدرتها علي تحويل الانسان ! ترجمة الكثير الي خوف و شغف و جنون .. لست قادرة بعد علي استيعاب تأثيرها , انعدام الثقة هو احد اسباب عدم اقتناعي بسحرها , ما الذي يجعلني اصدق كلمات يتفوه بها شخص م ا؟ , فهي في النهاية مجرد كلمات . و في النهاية نحن بشر و يتغير الكثير و لا يعود شئ كما كان ابدا .. ف كيف اثق ب احاسيس و مشاعر قابلة للتغير.

i have written those words in Arabic because it would be so much easier to hide a lot in words ,

i’ll not be able to translate it exactly as it is to you but i can give a summary of what this is about .

i was saying : that i am not able to understand the word (Love ) , cant understand its magic or its power and its ability to change people whether to a better or worse ones .

this magical word is just like a translation of passion , fear , craziness and many other feelings in a very special way ,which makes it so much  difficult for me to understand how does it works , how can it has that strong influence on people .

a problem of distrusting people is one of the reasons that makes me don’t believe any of its magic , what makes me believe a person who says some words ? we are all humans and we all have our sins and a lot of us lies A LOT ! we change from time to time and so do our feelings so how can i trust these feelings ?

what makes me turn my life upside down only according to words and feeling that may change in the future and they may be -in the first place – a big lie .

I don’t believe in LOVE and i don’t believe in sharing my life with someone else , i know what i need and i know what to do , and i don’t need someone to tell me what to or not do

lets praise #Forever Alone Club 😀

Adventure Life's Blog


From the stark and stunning Atacama Desert, to its legendary Patagonia peaks, a Chile tour provides an outdoor playground for adventure enthusiasts and offers a landscape that seems tailor-made for the active adventure traveler. There is no shortage of options to actively explore Chile and here are five of our favorites ways to do just that.

Whitewater Rafting
Rafting Chile’s Futaleufu River is recognized as one of the top whitewater adventures on the planet. The ‘Fu’ is glacial-fed from Patagonia’s Andes. Surrounded by grand peaks, it has top-notch rapids and its turquoise-blue waters are almost too vibrant to believe. The Fu offers stretches for beginners as well as Class III, IV and V rapids that challenge the most experienced rafters. Scenic & epic — these are the things river-rats live for!

The orientation day : 3/december/2012 , feeling the joy of success .”The special 2012″


This will be another story added to what makes 2012 so special for me.

the story begins at the end of November 2010 , when i joined an international organization found in many countries and universities including mine , 

Long story short : i’ve decided to join it so i applied , had an interview and i was accepted , joined one of it’s committees and worked for- i think- 2 or 3 months ; then i left for some reasons .

but at November 2011 i realized how stupid i was , i never regret anything in my life but leaving this organization was the first time to regret a decision i made .

 when i re-joined i decided to work hard to prove myself again , and here we are in 2012 a year passed and i am still in this org. and the most important thing was what happened yesterday ,,

we have been working for almost 2 months recruiting , to give a chance to new members to join our team and share our success with them , so we had worked on a daily basis to let everyone one knows who we are and what we do , what we have accomplished ,

fortunately everything was perfect of course we faced a lot of problems but at the end we had a tour in all the faculties and we let everybody know about us ,

we interviewed the applicants and accepted some of them so we had to take the following step which was the ORIENTATION , we had to explain in it everything in details , projects , committees , our mission for this year ..etc

so at 11 am yesterday me and my colleagues gathered together to start to decorate the theater and to make the rehearsals we were divided into teams i was in a two teams one of them was the organizers ..

when you are put in charge to make sure that everything is perfect , everybody sits in the appropriate place carrying the timeline of the day and the welcome envelopes , you feel so responsible , you feel that if you didn’t do your job right you will be responsible for the failure of a whole team , everyone was working with very high spirit and passion .

at the end of the day i have felt the joy of success i have felt that you will never ever feel success unless you work very hard ,

when we were about to make the closing of the day i was surprised by the president of our org. saying we want to thank every single person who worked to make this happen and then the presenter grabbed the microphone and said that ” we would like to congratulate and thank one of the most active members of the year …..” and suddenly i heard my name 🙂 so while i was walking from my place to the stage to have my certificate i was flying over the moon hearing a very warm and strong clapping from everyone in the room specially from my friends at that moment exactly i was about to cry cuz u feel that u have done the right thing , my decision to change and be a better and active person wasn’t wrong , i have chosen the best place to help me be a better person , i am better now because of you my team and because of our spirit together , because of learning how to give without asking back for a favor 

i have learned the joy of giving , the joy of changing , and i have made my decision and i’ll never ever break it : from now on i’ll never be that lazy stupid person again ,i really hope to be what i want to be and to achieve more success in my life

a message for me and for all of you guys don’t ever give up and don’t let your thoughts control you or break you ,  do what you want now its never too late !

What if it was optional ?!!


Before you start reading this i need all of you out there to close your eyes for few moments and have a look on your whole life since the very beginning …. take a look on everything whether it was a good or bad memory ,, it’s like you are evaluating your past ,,

After you have done this now you can read ..

I have been asking everyone lately this question :

– If you were given the chance from the beginning to choose between living your life or not living this life in the first place ( you’ll never exist ) .

———–> of course you will not be able to answer the question without doing the first step which is evaluating your life and thinking deeply in everything you have done and everything that had happened to you .

for example some of the answers i got when i asked the question was that He/She would choose the second choice which is they will never exist instead of living their current lives , and the explanation was that they see their lives are so miserable and have seen a lot of troubles and enough problems which have made them convinced 100% that life sucks anyway

some others were totally disagreeing the idea of the question they preferred to live their lives and see what it carries for them and they believe they will be rewarded for what they have done at the end .

some people answered that life is the best teacher so you must have this experience to face everything and learn from it , learn how to deal with different situations and how to solve your own problems , learn how to help others to be a positive person .. and that would give you a chance to be a better person and you would be benefited by understanding the main reason behind this life and why we are here ….

– when i asked myself this question first i chose to never exist as at certain point i saw life useless, i was seeing it very difficult , very difficult when you lose someone close ,one your family , friends lose them forever .. difficult in facing reality and knowing that you are here and you have to fight till the end to survive , its like having a one-way ticket .

but then i thought that life could be beautiful and simple if we all believed and accepted the fact that we are all going to die its only matter of time so we have to spend our days on earth happily we have to be alive and active as much as we can , work as hard as you can as if you are going to live forever and enjoy it to the maximum as if you are dying tomorrow , take advantage of everything … we have to help each other here on our short journey on this earth we are the ones who are making it difficult , nothing deserves to be sad for ,, if you believe there is another life after death you will know what i mean and if you don’t believe in it so i think you know you have to work hard to do your best performance in your only life !

so my advice is re-consider everything in your life , if your are from those who would choose the ( never exist ) choice so try to re-start again ,, think deeply and don’t let anything or anybody to ruin your life ITS YOURS !

i would appreciate it a lot if any of you have read this and shared your answer here 🙂

cheers 😉

Thoughts .


just writing some notes that comes to my mind from time to time ..

# over there between your mother’s arms is the only place where u can feel safe , just sleeping between her arms or bending your head on her knees , it’s like u r throwing everything behind your back feeling safety , u know u r strong because she is here , she got your back always .

# missing perfection ?! people everywhere tends to create that perfect picture in their imagination as it’s a relief just to know that everything or every good character u knew or heard about it is found on earth in somebody , it makes it easier to know that this perfect “somebody” is here u can trust him , u can rely on him , once u have this feeling u allow them to manage everything .. ….as an Example : as in politics u tend to choose the better one in elections because u know u can depend on him , u know this person will never cheat & in my opinion one of the reasons behind the Arab spring is that people were deceived , they thought that their rulers are fair enough to run their countries .. some people were too chocked to believe that they were cheated they created that perfect image in their minds and refused to believe that their image is not here anymore …. but they have to face reality perfection doesn’t exist anymore in our world , Only god is perfect .

# the persons u met , the situations u were involved in , the problems u faced ..etc.  All that have made what u r right now , have made U up ! so don’t regret anything that had happened to you , don’t regret being you right now .. people have to accept who you are ,, so just be yourself don’t pretend to be anybody else

Life Bonds !!!!


I am so amazed how we thought that life bonds are unbreakable , we thought as we grow older these bonds are getting stronger , but recently i have realized that we were lied to .. these bonds were so easily broken ….

those life bonds include the family one , yes it’s breakable too ! have just experienced that .

its so depressing how u were talking so proudly about how happy are you with your family and then everything change and now you are avoiding to talk about them .

having fights , problems and arguments continuously for more than a year is a very hard thing and it changes a lot specially when these problems weren’t solved from the first time so every time you have a problem or u r having an argument with someone things got more complicated as they are accumulated over each other every time they are not discussed or solved . and then one moment u feel like there will be an explosion ..

and i think that’s what had happened these days with me and my family , we are having lately about 3 or 4 fights per week and then someone decides to solve the situation with just a simple smile and then you forget everything for a while then something happens again and you feel like u are gonna start all over again .

we have reached a very bad point,  it’s been very long time since i have talked to my parents and every time we start a new fight the duration becomes longer and longer .

but this time is so different it feels like someone has broken your heart and left you without even bothering to look back !

i feel so down , sad and shocked because even if we are having a fight they should have asked what i am going to do as i am about to take a very important decision in my life , but nobody cared ! the thing is i am so depressed and so confused , its these times that you need very badly someone you can trust to talk with .. but they are not here standing by me , they left me all alone in this !!!  but this time i am having no regrets and having no intention to apologize or to fix things up , no intention to do anything about it . i am tired and it has become so humiliating and no matter what i will be strong and i will let nothing to break me down .

first time to know how does it means to feel sadness in your heart , it hurts to know that things will not be the same ever again after what had happened .

it seems that living in your fantasy world is so much better than facing reality :S

Wake-Up call !!


 Here is the reason i am writing this post right now ,,

i always have this thought in my head : what i am doing here ? why me ? and many other questions that have no answers in my head !

so while watching that movie ” why did i get married?” heard an idea was said by Janet Jackson
..

here it is …

>> i advice you to do this exercise <<

get a paper ,divide it into two sides , on one side write everything positive or good in your life,your relationship or anything else .

and on the other side write down the negative things , anything you regret or anything that makes you feel sad .

so after writing down everything , if the positive side exceeds the negative one .. i urge you to pray and thank god for what you have ,, just compare your life and what you got to those who don’t have at least half of yours . so be thankful please !!

Because what you got is just a gift from god , your are not responsible for any of it .

you have to realize that nobody knows what will happen next second !

you don’t know whether you’ll be alive or dead , right ?

as it happened to me twice , i lost two members of my family by the same way , they were so healthy and suddenly something happened in their bodies so everything was out of control and we lost them !

my point is we are not responsible for our health we are blessed , all we can do is to take care of it .

appreciate what you have and work hard to keep it !!!

but , If the negative side exceeds the positive one ,then you have to admit that you need to fix things up !

your life is under construction and you are the only one who will be able to fix everything , have the courage to face your problems and solve it !

just remember god has the power to replace us , we are over than 6 billion person on this earth ,right ?

take the chance .. you are here on this earth , you have a mission that you were picked up for .. so figure it out , prove that you are a responsible person to do it .

don’t forget to : Be positive , re-fill your energy and cheer up , life is beautiful anyway 🙂
