Life is a Mystery...


“Where the Mystery is present, joy is infinite; where the Mystery has departed, efficacy is exhausted and the spirit disappears.”

How do I explain mystery? The description of mystery is a mystery in its own because it cannot be described. Yet there is nothing more enticing and attractive than mystery…To hear, feel and experience mystery is to want more. You become captivated in the secrecy and obscurity of mystery, manufacturing into an obsessive twist and turn search for more. And when the anticipation is at its peak, that is when the word unfolds, that is when a tale grows and becomes its own history.

Life is a mystery…no longer sure what I’m going to do, where I’ll end and what I’m doing…At times, things could get out of control, out of your imagination, and out of your expectation but this is all part of life that I believe happens for a reason. However, the best things in life happen when you least expect it.



Something To Think About: Do you believe that "Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved?"

Love…Priorities


“The heart is the ruler of the body and the master of one’s spirit and intelligence. It issues orders, but it takes orders from nothing: it restrains itself, it employs itself; it lets itself go; it takes itself in hand; it makes itself proceed; it makes itself stop.”

Priorities and opinions are so susceptible that possessing empathy and open-mindedness makes life less confusing. But each day brings challenging, new experiences, making me question everything I know especially when love is involved. Which brings me to the question; does love change a person?

Love comes in many ways (be it family, friendship or romance) and it's quite interesting to see how your priorities fluctuate when new love comes into your life. It's funny how life has made these unexpected twists and turns, whether it’s the arrival of a new baby that changes your perspective on life OR a new love that comes along and changes every little thing that you do, that cause you to reflect on the value of everyday living. Love of a person tends to cause one to modify their priorities or perception on issues just to please the other, whether it’s agreed upon or done discreetly.

Something To Think About: Does Love motivate Change?

Personal Notes:
- Agent B: They say that the weather outside is very nice ;) lol..It was nice to meet our distant relatives, especially the "creative" one :)
- Vicini: Loved the quick outfit change during the event ;)

Desperately Seeking Motivation...



“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

A person's motivation is a combination of desire and force directed at achieving a certain goal or task. Yet, in my case it seems like I’ve lost all motivation in completing a certain task whether it’s helping out or just being there. It’s quite easy to get de-motivated by negative things or actions, yet I have to keep thinking positive and focus on the greater picture. I know I can always blame the weather or other external situations in my life, but I guess it’s up to me to find motivation…

Something To Think About: What are some things that help in getting you motivated?

Personal Notes:
- Agent B: I too can make a great cheese sandwich :p
- Vicini: How’s the tanning session coming along ;)
- 3ash Wagif: Don’t forget to watch the game today!
- Cayenne: hmmm, next time you're better off staying in Kuwait ;) and why is it always my fault :p
- S: The whole point of the headset is to decrease the risk of having an accident but in your case I guess it’s just not working out..lol :p
- Sindus: Can’t believe this day has come, not that we’re not happy for ya but we just can’t come to terms with the idea of you moving out :(
- Noodles: array, why you living in suffering..lol :)
- Chef & Cheeks: uhm, what’s Plan B ;)

- Manchester United: Best of luck today! when returning from Moscow, don't forget to get the ECL cup with ya ;)...GO RED DEVILS!!

Quitting is not an option...



“Winners are not those who never fail, but those who never quit”

Ever feel like why bother? What’s the point? Why don’t I just quit?...Of course you do, everyone does at some time or another. But feeling like quitting isn’t quitting!

Something To Think About: What would you do in these situations?

Personal Notes:
- Agent B: Amazing suprise!! We missed u!! Now the job is to keep you here as long as possible :p
- Vicini: I had a dream of you driving that vintage corvette..lol..I hope your not still thinking of that car :p
- 3ash Wagif: When do we get invited to poker night :p
- Sindus: I can't believe how time is flying, wish we can stop time so that you wouldn't have to go :)
- Cayenne: Do I still have to follow the 1 message rule here too :p...You still didn't answer my question regarding spending too much time thinking ;)
- Chef & Cheeks: Your barbeque dinners is taking its toll on the scale :/
- Bro: Before you quit, try!...The only person who's putting pressure on you is yourself, so snap out of it!
- Noodles: 1 more month and you'll be done, so work hard :p
- S: There's no backing out now ;)

Moments...


"Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones"


I believe the small moments in life that will forever be remembered with a smile, are the little things that will always mean the most. These occurrences highlight the wonderfully silent, absolutely personal small moments that weave together life and love

Something To Think About: Do you think character is made in the small moments?

Positive Thinking

...
"When there are difficulties and you feel down, this is the time to visualize, think and expect the positive.”


Personal Note:
Today would have been a day full of celebrations, sis baking her delicious goodies, mum + sis full of excitement putting the decoration up and dad + bro would be searching for the perfect gift. Unfortunately, we only had a few years to experience that and then all of a sudden you were taken away from us. Mum says you were a gift from God during her birthday celebrations, on your birthday she also celebrated mother’s day because she believes that a mother can only celebrate that day during her children’s date of birth (we always knew you were her favorite). Ever since you left we haven’t had many happy moments even though our exterior image showed other wise, but it seems like this year God has surprised us with a gift which seems like its making mum and dad very happy, 7imdillah. It’s something that mum and dad have always prayed for and I think it’s about time one of their prayers got answered. I know we moved far away from you and we haven’t visited you since we last saw you, I can imagine it’s difficult for you to understand but you have to realize parents tend to push away or run away from sadness. However, this year you’ll have a couple of family members who’ll be close by...People say we look alike, before I used to get annoyed by it but now I’m thankful whenever I hear it. I'm grateful to have had that chance of seeing you during your happy times and experienced your contagious smile, I guess God really did miss you that much to have taken you that early from us (I don’t blame him, I would want back my uplifting angel)…Happy Birthday and you will always be missed

Truly an Under-rated Singer!!




Highly underrated!…This is my favorite song in Feist’s “The Reminder” Album, it’s one of those songs that you can play over and over again and not get bored of it and helps in uplifting your spirit (sort of like my nightcrawler’s post ;) )…I love the video too :)

Anyway, I wanted to start the weekend with a positive note and this song does help in making sure of that :). Just a warning to all, if you see a car in the streets with this song blasting and the passengers inside are bopping their head like crazy then either join in or just keep driving on :p


Personal Note:
- Agent B: Always stay strong!...Does that mean there’s no Abdulmajeed ;)
- 3ash Wagif: Next time we’re going to play some MJ songs and your going to have to bust a move ;) lool
- H & S: Decide on something! :p
- HZ: Uhm, I keep forgetting…what was it again? :)
- Noodles: Silence! I kill u :p loool..there’s only so many times you can play this scene over and over again
- Cayenne: Duuuuudee!...busy at work? I hope the charges for subsequent advices didn’t cause you to turn away ;) hehehe
- B: What’s for dessert :D
- Cheeks: only 1 kilo!? :p
- Maze: Stop with the CA pictures!!..hehehehe…3awart galbna, I’m missing OC :/
- SP: Thanks for the latest podcast!! Amazing mix..great choice of songs :) Yet, I prefer one of the podcasts to the others ;)

- Mosan: Remind me again where does Man U stand in the PL table ;)
