My New Years Resolution

I always have a list of wants and wills for my new years resolution, but this new year I only want to be grateful, I want to listen to life, I want to accept what it brings, and when it brings what it brings I want to make sure I listen. Some things are sent our way, but are not ours, and we know it, but we don’t listen, while other things we pass by and we want, but are not good for us, but we don’t listen. 2017 taught me to let go, not by just going with any flow, nor by just being careless, but instead, to let go from wanting to over think, to let go from wanting to be in control, and to let go from questioning why, when, and how it happened. I let go by letting life take me where it wants to take me without having to understand. I choose, but I no longer swim against the tide, but with the tide. Today, my resolution for 2018 is to give back. It is to believe in the unseen or the un-comprehended, not only at times of difficulties, but at all times. We meet people, and we know from the very first moment where this new relationship will take us, we do not need to design it in our heads, as much as take the steps we feel is the right step to take and to believe in our souls that can hear. Whenever we are on a new path, we know where it will take us, but we are never certain, we don’t have to be certain, all we need to do is believe in our senses, and instead of clouding our own selves, to help open the doors by believing in our own readings. This new year of 2018, I want to strengthen my soul’s hearing, by accepting, by letting, by practicing, and above all by believing. This new year, I might be clueless to where I might be going, but I am thoughtful of my capabilities to know by feeling. And when felt, I will write it down, and I will remind myself that something good will happen.

Who said the Grinch stole Christmas from the MiddleEast ?

January 1st 2015,

Webdeh, Fuheis, Amman, Jordan

Stereotypes are pathetic… Yes the Middle-East is a mess, but the people are as human as everyone else around the world. We are people from different backgrounds, mentalities, beliefs, and profession. The Grinch never steals christmas from the hearts of those who wish to celebrate it, and the Grinch did not steal Christmas or New Year from the Middle-East. At least I am sure about Jordan & Palestine.

Jordan has flourished in celebrating this year, it has been very festive in several locations, and areas, Santa was all over the city, and Christmas Trees were decorated in public main attractions and in-front of houses and neighborhoods. Christmas is not only celebrated by Christians, many Jordanians and Palestinians who practice Islam or other religions also like to celebrate Christmas, write resolutions and wish everyone a happy New Year.

It is a mess almost everywhere around the world, let us work together to create love, we do not need the Politicians or the Media to tell us what to think of one another ,or how to predict the lives of other nations, or judge the differences, we are all human, we share the basics of soul, energy and heart. Religion was never the reason for war, or hate, politics only use it to cover themselves with and effect on the mass, all religions preach for peace love and unity. And I am not saying that from only knowledge, but also as a Muslim who has excessive passion to meeting people from all around the world who practice different lifestyles and beliefs.

Today is the first day of a new year, let 2015 be peaceful upon us, by being part of every celebration and away from any discrimination, let us hold hands and accept one another as souls of the earth, no matter how each one of us might like to interpret the meaning of our existence or the meaning of life, it doesn’t matter, what matters is bringing up the new generation in the name of Love. Have a wonderful and blessed New Year, where ever you are around the world, no matter what you believe in and what you do not believe in, we always deserve second chances, so let us make it a happy 2015.

Fashion Reflex: Looking at ends with joy and new beginnings with prayers of enthusiasm, wishing everyone a sparkling new year.

Today, I would like to write this and celebrate with every word I type. I wish to wish every one of us happy thoughts, blessings, and the feeling of being grateful to every single day that have passed by us even if it contained sorrow, for in every sorrow there is a hidden blessing or a hidden gift that we just need to find while we continue our journey. We all loose loved ones on the way but it is our choice to look at it as a loss, when instead we can look at it as a gift. Those people who have passed away were given gifts in our lives, we were lucky to know them, live with them and love them. Life is a lifetime cycle and we were born to know that our lives do end. The end should never be looked at with sorrow, but should be looked at with joy, should be looked at with gratefulness, and with respect. But as we continue knowing that to every end there is a new beginning we should be filled with hope, faith and enthusiasm.

Every year, I write a new resolution, and every end of each year I look at what I have accomplished from the list. This year of 2014 was the first year I truly accomplish almost all my list and the reason is I have learned to stop writing down unrealistic goals and instead writing what is realistic and accountable goals that I know if I don’t achieve within the same year I either no longer want the goal or I just need to continue achieving it within the next year.

Be true to yourself always, and be easy on yourself, try to look at your own window that will reflect to you what you and only you truly want and not what seems to be or is surrounded by you. Try to listen deeply; if what you write down as your resolution is something you are passionate for, looking forward to have, or experience then you will feel the enthusiasm towards it.

In this post, I am sharing looks from this season that are all about sparkling. Since the new year of 2015 is coming up, then dress up with sparkles, frost yourself with what will glitz and glow. Be joyous for what has passed and what is yet to come, and direct your attention to attracting the best of your own imagination.
