How do you take your happiness?

We go for months without any glimpse of happiness, and we are okay with that, we get used to that, we adapt to that and in fact that comfort is familiar and safe. Yet the second we taste that happiness and the flow of emotions and warmth that touches us, patience is no longer an option and we go out of our mind and body to try to get  that moment of happiness back and persist on it lasting for much longer than one moment, today, tomorrow and as far as our temporal imagination can take us.

So what is happiness? What does happiness really mean or really entail. Is it a hug, is it the unexpected gift, a kiss, a gaze into someone else's eyes? That moment when everything felt so beautiful and just right? A moment you did not deem possible and certainly not with that person who you didn't know a week ago or that last person you thought you will have a moment with.

Is happiness a checklist imposed by society? Everyone seems to think so, so my question is: how do you take your happiness?

Happiness only exists in a moment and then shortly after that, the memory of it; which you keep trying to recreate for the rest of your life.

And sometimes you don't want to go to sleep because it will only take you further from the happy moment you had on the day.

So tell me, how do you take your happiness?

All the single ladies

As human beings, we have been brought up to believe it’s crucial to find someone, be with them and build a life with them. It creates this insecurity, this constant feeling of being aware that you’re single, and that when you're single, you’re wrong and you’re doing life wrong. Like you’re missing out on something grand.
Peer pressure can get independent women to fake dependency. It gets to women at one point. Women should keep an eye on each other.

It’s sad that it’s frowned upon single women. As this woman is "less" and not a whole human being. It drives women to hastily hookup so they can achieve being validated as proper women. And certainly, I disagree.

We pressure ourselves because deep inside we are afraid to be judged. Truth is, deep inside a woman only judges herself, and the only thing she should do is silence that inner voice that is a collection of judgmental personalities around her which keeps her from being and from leading an emotionally healthy life. Finally, come what may.


With more experience and new adventures, the quality of emotions get better. The standards of your feelings are higher.

We forget

We mourn. We pray. We analyze. We blame. They conspire. We pretend. They condemn. We believe. They blame. We blame. They win. We lose.

Their problem

People will only see what they want to see in order to justify / explain / make sense out of things they are going through. Therefore whatever they're feeling, it's their problem and not your responsibility.

فكرة عن الكتابة عن كتابة الفكرة

ما هو كيانك ان لم تكن؟ كيف تكون ان لم تفكر، وكيف تثبت أفكارك ان لم تكتب.

ماذا لو كانت أفكارك هي عبارة عن فكرة أن ليس من الضرورة ان نثبت أفكارنا لأي كائن، لا بالكتابة ولا بغيرها.

لماذا تكتب؟ لماذا تتكلم وتعبر عن نفسك وعن آرائك؟ هل هي للوجود؟ للحصول على نظرات فخر او تعجب او صعوبة الفهم او انبهار بنباغة عقلك او فقط لتثبت لنفسك انك انسان... انسان طبيعي، واحد منهم، منهم ولهم، ينظر للحياة كما ينظروا اليها. مثلهم...

حتى لو لم تفكر بأي شيء جديد،
فعلاً، حتى لو لم تفكر أبداً...

Stop writing, stop thinking and wait for it

To what extent will we keep saying what we think about and writing what we believe people will be interested in. Sending out your thoughts in binary form shared with the public has become a saturated behaviour, not blogging saturation, but thought sharing saturation. You might disagree with me and say there are still a lot to be said and a lot to be discussed, but do you really believe that right now, someone somewhere is writing something new? something evolutionary? something out of this world?

At what point should we stop and realize that it's not about giving, it's about taking. Taking things in. Yes that is true, one of the few times taking is promoted against giving. But that will be your gift, the taking, because by taking you are allowing others to give.

Stop words from flowing out, take a break, sit down and let it all come to you.

Stop saying all thoughts aloud, stop thinking. Because that thinking is useless. This kind of thinking is subjective and compromised. It's no longer yours.
