Wish List

I want to lose my mind for awhile.
To act spontaneously.
To go ahead spend all my savings on traveling and shopping for stuff I can live without.
To stop being angry at you and treat you like nothing has ever happened. To treat you the same as I used to do.
To talk on the phone till I 4 AM.
To stop working hard. To stop having goals.
To stop wishing. to stop dreaming and to stop missing you.
To be happy, happy for myself and not for anyone else.
I want to laugh till I pee.
I want to feel loved again.
I want to be able to trust you again.

As Simple As Love Could Be

Love is the most awesome feeling you could ever feel.
It is amazing and it is so simple
It as simple as "لقد رزقت حبها"

You don't need to say you love someone when you don't
You don't need to change someone to fall in love with.
And definitely you don't need to cheat on someone.

Love is beautiful so don't ruin it

Broken

Am broken.
I don't want to forgive or forget.
I just want to be left alone.

To Wear Or Not To Wear..That Is The Question

I know this is not a new topic but I want still to talk about it.
Recently a lot of girls I know have taken off their Hijab and as much it boomed at the beginning, now it is disappearing as quickly as it started.
People taking it off for many reasons and the main reason, we look better without it.
The idea scares me, I am afraid that I would wake up and decide that I don't want to wear it anymore.
It scares me like when I start missing prayers that I might stop praying, God forbids, it is not that praying is equal to wearing Hijab but both are very important to me.
Also I don't like the idea that people praising me for still wearing my Hijab, am not wearing it probably and I have a lot to improve so don't make believe that I do what am supposed to do which I am not.

Another thing, there a lot of so-called Hijab Fashionista all over the social media that they don't have anything to do with Hijab, I know I don't have the right to judge any of them but after I followed a lot of them to get idea to dress nicely, I found that they have to do nothing with Hijab.

The Turban Hijab is not Hijab.
The super-tight Hijab is not Hijab.
The loads of make-up is not Hijab.
The head to toe brand names Hijab is not Hijab.
The ankle length pants with anklet is not Hijab.

The Hijab lost its essence while some people try to make it easy. Again am not wearing Hijab as it should be but am not telling 20K followers that this how you should dress your Hijab.

I actually feel more feminine when I dress in a loose skirt or long dress.

I am actually lucky el hamdolliah that I live in European country, believe it or not, Hijab is never a problem here.
I meet clients 3adi with my Hijab and am very presentable not like what they usually say back home.
I went to swimming class with my full covered swimming suit and they had no problem whatsoever with it.
I was never not allowed to go in a place because am covered.

For every girl who about to take it off, pray for God first, renew your beliefs, أن القلوب لتصدأ try to dig for the reasons you first wear it for and go shopping for new clothes.

If you still want to take it off, don't start saying it is not obligation...بلاش فتى وحياه أبوكى

At the end, I can only say اللهم ارنا الحق حقا وارزقنا اتباعه وأرنا الباطل باطل وارزقنا اجتنابه

Well Deserved

For every time I complained about how lonely I am when I actually I was not.
For every time I complained about my friends want to hang out with me all the time.
For trusting you when I should not.
For every single time I wanted to be left a lone & could not.

I would not complain now I just wish for it to end soon...That is it & that is all

    Growing Old

    How many times you wish for the hours to pass so you could finish your job and go home?
    Are you still waiting for the weekend every Monday?
    Did you count the days till your trip? till you meet your beloved ones? or till you get what you want whatever it is?

    So you keep wishing for time to pass and when it pass and you grow older, you feel sad.
    Till you die, you will always have unfulfilled dreams and duties and time will pass anyway.

    Emotionally Independent

    A broken heart

    Last time I had nervous breakdown, I literally cried my heart out, took sick leave without being actually sick, something that I cannot remember doing it in my whole career, but I was so emotionally sick so I guess I earn it.

    But next day, I was amazed by how was capable of handling myself and putting me back to the right path.

    I was the old happy me and I did not wait for the broken promises anymore. I feel free all over again.

    Stand up for yourself, break down when you feel like it and talk less, much less, about your misery to people.

    While Wondering

    I took off my roots and decided to leave for a new adventure.
    I wanted to miss people I used to love and forgot all the anger I had for them.
    I did not want to be attached to anyone, to any place.
    I wanted to be left alone, I wanted not to be able to reach out for a help when I need one.
    I wanted to stand on my own.
    And it worked.

    And then I started feeling loneliness and longing all over again and then I found you.
    You filled in my life and at moments, you were exactly all I need.

    Then again, all "what I get myself into", "this is not going to work", "I want way out" thoughts came back rushing.

    And again I missed the me not attached to anyone, the lonely me, the one and only can make myself happy and sad.
    Because no matter how less I expect from you, you never cease to disappoint me.

    Is it time to take my roots out and start wondering again?

    European Hijab

    I always tell my cousin, who live In Europe, that If I was born and raised in Europe, I might not have realized the importance of Hijab and I would have never wear it.

    But when I moved to Europe, I realized that Hijab here does its job more than in home, Egypt I mean, because here men stare and might comment if you wear sexy clothes, never touching or bad words, just nice compliments.

    Don't tell me that you don't like to get nice compliments if you wear nice sexy clothes.

    In Egypt ba2a, Hijab or without Hijab, you will get harassed, if you smile, if you drive, if you cycle, if you walk, meaning if you were born a girl, يالا حظك السيئ

    Egypt May God have His mercy on you  =(

    About Love

    Today I saw a couple hugging and show affection, I know it is not new, I live in Europe and this is normal.
    But those specially touched me. they were so sweet.
    He walked by her side, holding her hand in one hand and his bike in the other hand.
    From time to time, she would stop him to give him a kiss or a hug.
    It made me wonder, how does it feel to be deeply in love, to be able to hug him/her anywhere, to be safely in love.
    If you had this kind of love for once in your lifetime, then be grateful, you probably deserve it.

    Life is difficult

    Yeah true it is.
    Lets forget about the photos with the smiley faces.
    All the nice places we check in.
    All the Am fine words.

    Because I am not fine and life is not fine.

    I hate being alone and I love it in the same time.
    I want to have a dog but I cannot.
    I cannot stop think of you.

    I want just to sleep tight and happy.
    I want to be happy but till then am just fine outside, heartbroken inside.

    Old & Single

    I know that many have talked about this topic but here I want to talk about my personal experience.
    I am 29 years old and single and of course am still staying at mom's house, so here are some highlights of my life of being old and single.

    I never imagined how a husband or a partner to be specific is very essential until I lost my friends to marriage. It is like "We are friends, till marriage fall us apart".

    I have to understand that they are busy to go out or even to call every now and then. I have to understand that our meetings can be canceled and modified according to their agenda. Which I normally don't understand and that slowly ends our friendship.

    Your siblings have moved out too and although they always there for you, you still cannot reach them all the time. They have their own lives now and other people to look after.

    Your mom is old and settled, your interests are completely different, while you have this youth madness. You want to explore the world while she wants you to set still, so that someone can notice you and propose so she can get off her burden.

    Whenever you talk about good news, work-related or travel or whatever, a prayer for finding the right one is always the answer. a reminder that you happiness still is not enough, you still miss the most important part.

    Your friends started to give you advices, they would never dare to do it, but since they are now guarded with their rings, no one could understand them wrong. You are the one who should be taking the risk unwillingly.

    One week engaged in her earliest 20s, share her experience with you because ya 7aram you don't know what does it mean getting engaged, she knows more than you do, have not you noticed the ring?!

    Lets not talk about the family gatherings and all advice and the worse one "shedi 7ilk" ok but what am I supposed to do exactly?! then the blank face come into scene.

    I hate when I share people about my dreams of a perfect marriage and they transfer the negative side of their marriage, then why you want me to get married to be miserable like you are saying? it is not always real because we complaint a lot 3ashan el 7asd.

    I really don't care about what other people think, but I want to get married.

    I am old and till now am not ready to give up the qualities I want in my husband, I don't expect him to be perfect at all, but I want him to fit me perfectly.

    I hate being alone and am missing being part of someone future plans.  the sweet "we are going to" phase.

    I want someone to be always there for me, not only whenever he is free.

    I want to be priority in his life.

    That is it, till then am happy old single woman.

    Fernwah...رغبة عارمة للسفر

    Home does not feel like home when you hate every part of it.
    When the one you live with does not share your passion of life.

    I want to leave.

    I want to open my eyes every morning to endless green and warmness of a hug.


    I want to see the ocean.


    I want to travel every year to a new place. To fall in love with new people, places and spices =)

    Let me out ba2a ....sigh

    Popsi

    I have not talked about my cat a lot in this blog, I guess I only mentioned her once or twice, so since she is now 7 years old and she is very important to me as I get to know people better, I fall more for her.

    • Here is when I first got it, the first year, she was younger


    •  I carry her to get a proper picture of her <3>
     
    • Here is the scary look, it completely does not define her, she is the cutest, kind heart cat.

    • What are you eating look =)


    •  Sleeping like an angel.


    • Fully awake =)

    • One day I lost her, it was one of the worst days, my whole family was looking for her with me.
    • She welcomes me when I return home. she could hide all day, only appears at the time of me coming home.
    • She stays where I stay.
    • She wakes me up whenever I am late or she just bored or need to eat.
    • She has a personality of her own, she would not eat any food, proper food only.
    • She cleans herself after you pat her.
    • I have always been an animal-lover since I was a kid, and I had a lot of pets, such as dog, frogs, yeah frogs, chicks, rabbits, turtle, birds and finally Popsi. she is my favorite one ever.
    • Whenever people claim that cats are not as loyal as dogs, stereotype they don't have dogs nor cats, I want to tell them to look around and tell me how many people are as loyal as dogs.
