Truly me


When people tell me what i'm eating is fattening:

 
hahaha!


Random thoughts



Nothing specific today. Just random thoughts that plagued my mind as I drove back from the gym and found myself home alone. Here we go.

  • If you don't think highly of yourself no one will. andwhatever you do in life, do it true.
  • Sometimes you need to get your s**t together to make it during rough times...you just need to act like a lady (when you really want to act like a hoodlum thug and stomp on some ugly mugs *sigh* positive thoughts Noora, positive thoughts..roses..roses..pretty roses..there, better)
  • I want to go to paris and walk in the small empty narrow streets. (Not the Champs Elysee...too touristy for my taste, lovely, but not my favourite street)
  • I think I'm an eye poet..similar to a poet but instead of saying beautiful words I show beautiful images, I'm not saying I'm a photographer but I can humbly say that I share beautiful hard to find images on my blog and instagram : )
  • I always thought there's a sunlight in every person...till I met a few people who proved me wrong, I mean these people made the eclipse in that stupid foofoo lala vampire movie look bright. I mean i'm talking pitch black darkness in these people... I MEAN I can see some kindness in Terminator from the first Terminator One where he was the evil machine coming to kill Sarah Connor and my God how did I remember her name... *goosebumps* . How do people go from day to day with such hatred and cruelty?
  • Need to read Think like a Man and like a Lady cause many people are telling me that Steve Harvey's sense of humour is one that I will enjoy as I've been whinning about not being able to force myself to hold a book (is this a phase that people go through after studying and working excessively for a long period of time?)
Mind went blank and lighter...mission accomplished.

Roses

My love for roses runs deep. Though for a long time I always show distaste in anything that is romantic I confess i am absolutely a hopeless romantic towards roses.
I thank God for creating these fragile beauties that have thorns to protect itself....sort of like us ladies who require to show an assertive exterior to protect ourselves from the monstrosity and deceit of reality.

“But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.”
― Anne Brontë

LOL

That is the expression I give. Spot on!




New Year Resolutions



Though three days have passed I've finally managed to pull myself together and actually write on my blog...I think with twitter, facebook and now instagram I have spread myself thin and lost track of writing down on my thoughts here.

2012 has been an interestingly challenging year for me mentally and physically both negatively and positively. The highlights of it is getting my masters. never thought i'd ever get this done but elhumdellah i'm humbled and happy to have completed it and in a field that i love (Diplomacy and Internationa Affairs)...I hope I'll enhance myself intellectually in that field in the near future inshAllah.  Another is realising more than ever that family is everything...people come and go, everything comes and go but family remains true and i'm grateful i've realised it more than ever.

The not so highlights of this year is struggling to accept some of my imperfect traits and fixing it (trust me, admitting it is one thing but fixing it is a whole different game!). Also discovering true colours of many people (some who became close friends while others were individuals who didn't have the best intention at heart).

I truly hope that 2013 will be......no wait i rephrase that. With what I have experienced and learned from 2012 I have to utilize it for 2013 now that the hard tests made me wiser and calmer. I'm pleased to say that I have reached a calm stage in my life and that hardships dont shake me up like it used to, no i am not saying that i morphed into robocop (robocop?...God that's old lol!)  but I think more...and more....and think..then i say quielty to myself elhumdellah 3ala kel 7al. I assure you it took me so long to reach this stage but it was worth it.

Forgive me if this post does not reflect the best of my penmanship but Russel Crowe's Gladiator is on and my attention to my post is quickly deteriorating lol.

Here's to a start full of positivity success and happiness to all of you and your loved ones.


Sincerely,

Noora
