New Years’ Resolutions

I congratulate myself,

new-years-resolution

It’s the time of the year where some of us tick off the accomplishments of our old year 2017 resolution board, but believe it, dear Readers, that some of us just have it somewhere, lost in our memories. So for a girl who is doomed to forgetfulness above average, I tried to recollect my 2017 new year resolution list and this is what I can tell you. Continue reading “New Years’ Resolutions”

The Lost Key

We are all in a maze

It was a lost key.

That no one seemed to realize that they needed for all those unanswered questions.

The lost belief and faith

They lost it, and now they’re finding another one to replace it.

I am still finding the key; it’s the key that would bring all humankind together.

The key is our creator. We need to find him to open all our doors.

We need to realize that in the midst of everything, we have forgotten to find the lost key. We have forgotten that there is Allah, who is the answer to all our questions.

In the middle of our everyday lives, we have forgotten the beginning of that valuable breath. We are all in a maze, and we are all following one way; the way that everyone is going, because we are afraid of being left alone. Without realizing that we are not exactly alone. We just need to follow our hearts and find the lost key inside the maze, the key that unlocks all door.

We feel lost because we are lost. From the most valuable and priceless thing. And we only need to realize that we have lost it so that we can start searching for it with all our might.

He is our only hope. There is no other way.

I Write…

For my sanity

I write when I am happy

I write when I am sad. 

I write when I feel like crying and I know that there would be no one who would really listen and understand the echoes in my head. 

I write to calm down my <!–more–>mind’s vivid imagination; if I wouldn’t write, I wouldn’t have been able to sleep at night. 

And mostly, I write for my sanity. 

My writings are my therapy. They are the reason I can stay calm when everything around me is crashing and nothing is going too well. It helps me understand myself better and all the jumbled thoughts that are running around in my head – it helps create an order.

I question every thought in my brain, and I need to write to find answers. 

The shoulder to lean on that everyone talks about ? -That’s my writings for me. 

At the end of day, when nothing is going well and words cannot come out of my mouth, I know that I can always go back and just write. In order to share, explian all of the things that I believe in; with the people who would actually love to listen. And when days come by where words escape me from my mind and heart, I read and listen to others hearts. 

Writing and reading are just beautiful. They show you, that impacts can be made with silence too. 

When I write, I use my mind and my heart, they work together in such unison to create a perfect balance. It’s a complete definition of pouring one’s heart out. 

I just love writing. 

It’s beautiful how when one reads something, they interpret it in the situation they are in at that moment; in their own perspective. When you read someones writing, you are forced to listen, concentrate and understand. And it touches you, deep in your heart, because you feel exactly the emotions that one was going through. 

I know that when I read what I write now, ten years later; I will read everything from a very different perspective. It will be a different feeling, listening to the emotions that ‘were’- creating a sense of nostalgia, for the person I was.  Because writing is timeless. 

You could say I write for selfish reasons. I do it for myself completely.
