What matters is to show up; only show up.

Life keeps unstoppably teaching us lessons; and one of the most recent ones I have learned was knowing the importance of showing up no matter what happened. Show Up.

Show up for the people you love.

Show up in every occasion if possible; people are respecting you enough to share important moments of their lives with you; don’t shut them off & turn your back to their invitations.

Show up because you care.

Show up because you can.

Show up because you are still alive; create a memory that lasts in your mind & in people’s one too.

– When in to comes to an end; when each & every one of us leaves this earth our bodies will fade but what will only remain is the warmth of our souls; the softness of our words; our presence back then when we had the chance; that’s the only thing that will remain the memories & moments you shared with people; that’s how you’ll be remembered & that’s how your name will live forever.

Create your own moments when you have the chance.

Show up in people’s precious moments the saddest before the happiest.

Be there for people in your life. – if you don’t please don’t expect anybody to be there for you in return anytime -.

I have learned lately to stop making excuses; I used to live in my own world; not caring that much to the importance of people around;

but then i realized that part of having a really good life is to be there whenever possible.

I used to ignore most of the outings with friends because am too happy having other stuff to do it my way; but taking a look back i noticed how disrespectful is that; why would I keep people away;

And on the other side; I have learned that no matter how much I hate a person; disregarding too many facts you have to be there in the saddest moments even if you hate this person. you still have to show up.

It matters.

Because you never wanna end as a reaction not the action itself. Showing up is good.

So be good.

that’s what life taught me; Be good; Show up, It really really matters.

About time..

I’ve been newly introduced to this incredible fascinating movie ” About time..”

I’ve always had this thought about time travel..

“What if’ only wander if you can go back in time to live your favorite moments again; not only live them but stop them from going; i would stay in my favorite period of time forever; Why would i risk it & leave it behind to see the future ?! yea the future may be prettier but what if turns out not to be that pretty as what i had before ? then what happen ?!

The same exact thought i have about people who say ” Don’t be afraid to fall in love; you never know it may work ?! again what if it didn’t ?! then what ? are you going to heal the wounds ? are you going to fix it ? the only one who will take the pain is the one who did it risk; yea you might & i say MIGHT get the biscuit but who knows after all ?!

you may get the feeling of insecurity in my words but that’s how i feel about the whole Life thing; you never know if you are going to have what you have now in the next following moment..

yes i love being a risk taker but at the same time i try to avoid the bitterness of loss; losing people, losing things, losing the meaning of your life & last but not least losing hope.

Only imagine..

What if you have the opportunity to re-live your past or lets not get so vague.. what about re-living some moments that you really really want to have again?

Oh dear God, i can only think about how fast can my heart beats go.. i can think of the consequences of such miracle if it has genuinely happened;

The movie has just awaken these kind of dreams inside me; as if someone has just dipped his finger deeply in your wound & never took it back;

am not only grieving about the past; am worried to death about the present; by the tik-toks of a clock my present vanishes & its replaced by the unknown; yes we’ll manage to deal with it; but it will torn another piece of the heart as it goes away;

you know i can’t get out of here with the best advise; because i actually don’t know it; am asking for one;

but the thing is the movie has just stressed on a fact that away from miracles & dreams of time traveling; we still have moments to live; we still have the opportunity to tighten the gap in our intervals & enjoy the moment;

we still have the opportunity to look deeply on the face of people we love; may it s the last time; maybe not but you’ll certainly save your details in your memory; and whenever its needed you’ll just recall it; that’s the best that we can do.. RECALL.

so to do this recall thing perfectly you’ll have to live fully in each and every moment doing what you love with the people you admire the most;

what we need to do is to learn how to appreciate what we have;

Don’t take things for granted;

leave a mark; be there for your people; keep them in as well; build your connection real tight that’s how a life is made; and that’s memories are created;

People & you will live forever not to the last day of your life but your story will be there alive to the last day of the last person you had a connection with;

Recall their memory; let them live;

Be Alive.

I do really want to thank whomever worked on this movie; it says a lot; if was able to describe what i feel about time/ time traveling and this concept the overall idea i wouldn’t have described it better.

it showed me make it clear to my eyes how hard is it to decide; How hard it was when he had to choose between his newly born kid & his father; choosing between the past & the future; when can be the one so sure of anything to take such a decision ? how ? will i ever be able to choose & be so certain & definite about something ? will i ever be able to decide without hesitation & never look back; no regrets but at least imagining what if i went for the alternative ?!

one of the great lessons in the film as well was that whatever power you have; fate will always exist; you will never be able to fix everything by your own; some stuff need to take care of itself; some unfinished business will be done & not fully done by you; yes you may use your power but the universe will interfere in a way or another; just to let things fall into the right place;

And not to forget the sense of devotion declared in the film; you may need to add devotion to your daily routine, sit back & watch the difference in your life,

Again thanks to the filmmakers; brilliant job; i’m definitely watching it over & over again; and i advise you too as well – whoever is reading this – watch the movie 🙂

Optimistic or Faithful ?!

well lets start with a fact that i couldn’t be counted on team optimism, never been.

always tend to choose the worst/darkest side of anything, didn’t expect too much out of anything to avoid frustration & depression.
it might be am just choosing the safest side ? may be .. i think .. who knows anyway ?

the past few months was too busy, doing too many things graduation project, community service , preparing for my final exams and so on..

i was putting all my time & effort in all these stuff, as am a person who is seeking perfection i couldn’t handle seeing unfinished work, was working too hard to have it all done perfectly,

i do believe in this : “the result of  your equation is known from the given you already have “ , i had all the given; the material, my time, my effort, then according to my theory i should not worry about the result but i should because there is only one factor could turn this upside down its Conciliation, so without it its all done none of this will work,

i needed conciliation badly whether in my exams or in my project and in my interviews for the job vacancies i applied for,

through all of that i was trying to figure out this :” am i an optimistic person ? am i that person & i wasn’t really showing ? or am just too faithful to believe in god & in myself ?” when i was pretty sure of what i did and the effort & time i spent to get that finished i was kinda sure of how the result should be but was waiting for conciliation to show its effect

every time i went to exam, every time i went for an interview, the moment i stood presenting my grad. project i was comfortable with what i did, i have done everything i was asked to do.

i got accepted at one int. and right before i receive the job, some problems popped out bec. of bad timing i was supposed to get hired and have exams at same time so that was impossible, i quit, but was too satisfied, thanking god for what happened although i wanted this job badly but i won’t cry on something wasn’t mine already, who knows may be it wasn’t good for me, may be its just fate, i told myself & was speaking to God :  ” i know you are saving something better for me, you know how hard i want a job as soon as possible, so i know you’ll give me what i deserve now or later, there’s something for me out there and i’m waiting” .

i don’t exactly know is this optimism or faith ? after too many thinking i came out with this: optimism is a result of strong faith, faith will never be there if you are not pretty sure of what you did , – when you work hard for something, when you put all what you have in something, & you do your thing perfectly -, you consequently have faith/ belief in yourself, in your goal , you believe eventually in God who was witnessing all what you did, so you are expecting a result according to the given that you have put in the equation, then you become seeing the bright side of whatever happen & that makes you optimistic by the way.

work hard + believe in yourself + believe in god’s power + conciliation = faith = optimism

see i might be both characters the pessimistic & the optimistic one, it depends

we can’t say this person is pessimistic or optimistic, its a range, we can’t be counted on one of the two poles only, it depends on the situation, the given, the faith, it depends on changeable circumstances.

optimism is not too far from faith both are directly proportional, both relate to each other strongly with what you are willing to do.

how hard it is to live in a developing country ?

its harder than any of you can imagine , living in a developing country is about a life time challenge , whether you will survive or not , with absence of security , absence of raw materials , absence of rules .. absence of everything that can lead to humanity .

people in these countries are classified to two classes : a very poor class and the rich one ,yes the middle class has disappeared or to be more accurate on its way to disappear ,prices keep rising every now and then ; incomes are insufficient at all , most of the people are having very low wages and salaries, only few are getting the highest incomes you can ever imagine in a developing country , so people have to work day and night just to provide their basic needs from food , clothes , enough money to pay for schools and colleges .. – and of course the level of education should be mentioned here , you will have the appropriate level of education according to your willingness to pay money – this is considered to be a main part of the unemployment problem , many applicants don’t meet the market’s criteria to be hired,

many graduates nowadays in countries like India and Egypt tend to work for outsourcing companies , just be able to speak a foreign language then you’ll be hired and work in a call center , which in fact might be a good solution as they are giving good salaries but the ugly truth is those graduates have paid so much money , effort and time in their education stages and they chose different majors hoping to work by these majors in the same field , i know many graduates who have studied law , engineering , and different medical fields and they ended up working in a call center .

beside all this , if you are wandering who is the most unlucky creature on earth : its women who live in developing countries .;









as a result of illiteracy women are treated unfairly in their countries , as we have heard recently about that sexual assault crime which happened in India  Young woman gang-raped in India died

also in Egypt we have been reading a lot these days about the increasing percentage of sexual harassment  Mona eltahawy speaking the guardian about sexual harassment in Egypt

men have turned into animals , once they see a woman in the streets they give themselves the right to assault this girl , it seems they are saying ” as long as she is all alone then its mine ” they are assuming that women are weak and they are not able to defend themselves , but fortunately they are not , women aren’t weak and they deal with those monsters very good , ” Fighting harassment in the streets “

stepping aside from sexual assaults , women are also suffering from rules , unlike women in developed societies many of them are not allowed to leave their parents house and live alone before marriage , many fight everyday for their right to travel abroad solo , its rare to find a woman traveler from a developing country ,

its so obvious that these developing societies are not able to face the fact and believe that women are just like men , we are in the 21st century there is no place for inequality any more.

on another hand , governments in developing world are not working for people , they are working for themselves , they tend to give speeches on how they are working so hard to have a better country , how they are fighting to provide everything to their people , but actually non of these governments took a step towards economic or social reform , unlike the Turkish government which took a very large steps in the economic reform , Turkish debts to IMF will be zero by may says the prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan “clean break with IMF by may” , while other countries are still trying to sign agreements with IMF to have future loans which will lead the countries to drowning more and more , imposing taxes on local investments , allowing monopoly ignoring any rule of fair market and ignoring the fact that this fair market might take the countries to a whole new level achievements .

speaking of the ignorance of the government to the importance of economic reform and many other issues , governments are also ignoring the security issue in their countries , people are feeling unsafe when they go out to streets they don’t know what is waiting for them , thieves are left in many countries free in the streets , and of course lacking safety in the streets leads to the problem we have mentioned before ” sexual assaults”

and also which investor will take the risk and invest in a country which is lacking safety and lacking stability , no one will .

so its obvious that developing countries needs every help possible , needs governments who are really caring for their country , needs decades of hard working to rebuild those countries and let them be en route and on the track with the rest of the world .
