Giving up something good for something better


nothing worth having comes easy...

There are more than a few sorts of things that grounds people to feel fear in their lives. Fear of failure. Fear of ridicule. Fear of rejection. But the pits of all fear is that of losing something that you have already got, in particular, if it’s something “good” that you have worked to achieve. Like it or not, though, fear of any kind is a limitation that holds you back from taking certain risks. “Sacrifice is being willing to give up something good for something better.”-and I would certainly agree with this statement. In pursuing this, we often face obstacles which require us to forfeit physical or emotional comfort in the service of something that matters more. Often, the greater the dream or vision, the greater the shared sacrifice required to attain it. Sacrifice is easier when we stay focused on what we are choosing rather than what we are giving up. Life is full of boundless possibilities, but in order to transform a possibility into a reality we have to choose — sacrificing the many in order to attain the one. Nothing is gained without something relinquished. If you want to attain great things in life, you must be willing to risk all that you have currently achieved. It is a principle that can help make all aspects of your life better, including relationships, personal growth and development. Ultimately, the question you must answer is, whether “good” is good enough for you?


You smell foreign!

Now Listening: Losing Grip

Tuesday madness at work. Just when you thought of slowing down on life, work won’t permit you. 7:25am and people are calling me from everywhere, guess what? about work. Work starts anytime and never finish though (NP: Complicated by Avril Lavigne) 🙂 Thoughts at the moment: Canada. snow, freezing negative degrees, new life, another journey, life on my own. Things will be easy and hard mostly. Who cares? Only I.

Change your Perspective

What if we had viewed life in a different perspective? What if the choices we made alter the life we have today?

If you have the opportunity to change anything, what would it be?

17:20p.m Dubai time, a heavy sandstorm is slamming the city and the famous Torch Tower – 5th highest building in the world was at massive fire, that engulfed the 86-storey tower at Dubai Marina. Just when I heard of the sad news, I had a frivolous thought of the past and asked myself the introductory question, “What if we had viewed life in a different perspective? What if the choices we made alter the life we have today?”If I have the capability of changing anything right now, I’ll go back to my youth days where the outset of  immaturity blooms. I have always had high hopes of having a better version of myself, notably- a better student at class, focused listener and an uncomplicated human who value life’s simplicity. However, I have learned that if we want an improved version of ourselves, its either we wish we made better decisions in the past or, change our perspective today. It can be a roller coaster ride, but it is never too late. I am a minimalist in the making and simplicity practitioner. I am now viewing life the way I want it to be. Life may be entirely distinctive 26 years ago. It can be a hard start. Sacrificial and uncomfortable sometimes, yet, this is one major life change I would love to embrace…

Life’s a beach

Here we go again… I am now on my 2nd attempt in writing. First, was a failure. But today, as I reactivated my account, I don’t even know how and where to start. All I know is that I read a book (52 Changes) yesterday and I am now here, back to my old and new happy place. And why the hell not?! Well, hell YES!

Welcoming summer in the midst of February!
