be GRATEFUL. be GREAT FULL

15844636_10212277958572443_648437786047928931_o.jpgI’ve done my fair share of goodbyes to 2016. Now it’s time for a new chapter of life. Hello 2017!!!

We’ve all stumbled and hit the bottom rock over the span of 2016. Hope you’ve decided to get up and give it another try, eventually learnings are meant to be received and every fall.

I’ve decided to start a new this year and I hope you do too. So, I have come across this thing on pinterest about having 30 days to be grateful for something. As I go through the list 30 things to be grateful for in 30 days, I told myself, “I don’t need this list”. Surely enough I don’t. Believe me, you don’t need it too.  You only have to decide for yourself. What are the things you can be grateful for in life? Most important question is, what are the things you can be GREAT in life?

Everyday, you can start by being grateful for is having another day to wake up and start a new. Be grateful that you have another day to correct your mistakes yesterday. Learn from every single one of them and do things in a much better way.

On the aspect of being GREAT, decision is yours. Who wouldn’t want to be great on something right? I mean, I do, I want to be a great person to start with. Be a better daughter or a better sister, to be a better friend, colleague or simply be a great ME.

As the new year starts, you don’t have to make a list of the things you want to change within yourself or your perspective in life. You only have to decide to accept yourself and make a better version of you.

God made you as you are, the perfect you.

 

The home I have found in the Rising Emirate

I have been living in UAE for a little more than a year now. 

I have spent those days and months living with people I barely know. Yet they showed me kindness and sense of belonging and I will forever be grateful to them. I have spent those resting moments in the lower level of a double deck. I had to wake up early to be able to take a bath with less pressure that someone is already waiting outside for his/her turn to use the bathroom.

I have spent those days and months away from my family yet never did my father’s advice left my mind, heart and soul. He used to tell me “dream high, aim high” and he would also tell me how big of a dreamer I was for a lady. I kept it as a reminder by heart.

So there I was, I tried spreading my wings as I let go of the things I already have. Hoping that I may find my shift in destiny by any chance. Just like any other person, I got bruises along the way, and in each of them is a life’s lesson bound to be learned, by me.  I came to a point that I have almost lost hope by I never stopped flipping my wings up and down praying for the wind of my path would start to calm. It did.

God was so great he blessed me with the light which made me see that doorway which leads to a bigger world of challenges and growth. A place where I can see my dreams turning into reality.  I have found a less expensive yet so adorable baby blue car, and that covered parking area by my workplace. A big building with a private access I can enter. That brown desk to work at and a boss who trusts his people.

Finding that perfect work, made me found a paradise. But never be blinded with the word for I have my own description of it.

Paradise for me is a place so high I can see almost everything that surrounds me day and night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Al Hamra Village

Paradise for me is a place with a balcony where I can calmly enjoy my hot cup of coffee in the morning. Where I can just close my eyes and play with my thoughts of life and every day. Reminiscing a little of my past thinking what the future may hold for me.

Paradise for me is a place surrounded by the sea, where I can just spend a moment worrying about nothing in my life. Where I can enjoy taking a little walk or jog just to clear my mind.
