Walking towards sunshine II

With every heartbreak, you look inside and see that little heart of yours torn into million little pieces, you swear you will never give it to anyone and will never accept anyone else’s. You try to put the pieces together, alas..you fail. The gash is too deep, and the flow of blood won’t stop.  The pain is endless that you wake up, stare at your pillow all soggy, and wonder if that emotional drain will ever come to a hush.

You – robotically-live your life, start walking around with this sort of apparently focused yet actually absent look, the sun takes notice and decides to chase you like you used to chase her… teasingly glistening on your skin, you realize that you have to play along.   You look and remember that you have missed out on the main purpose, you remember that it is not the end of the journey yet.

The sun extends those luminous hands to your chest, takes a look at the messed up organ, then turns those fractures and splinters into a window; where you can see through your soul; where you can see the hidden gifts buried under the once was smooth flawless surface.    You understand that even a heartbreak is yet another way of evolution, bitterness slightly develop into appreciation…and you murmur a “thank you” and a little prayer.   You feel loved although someone slammed a door thrashing your passion and infatuation, but you have seen others standing at the end of corridor lovingly collecting and embracing the smashed defeated bits. You are whole again.

The sun glimpses a smirk on your face, she walks with you hand in hand, steps swift and sturdy, until you gain momentum…then she runs, quickly…for you to chase her again. And you effortlessly do 😀

To those who are frustrated, giving up, and losing interest in life

My Grandma is sick, as in really sick (in a critical condition).   Despite her pain, when she is conscious she smiles and giggles..  as usual she is keen on teaching me lessons to live with.

Refuse to fall down

If you cannot refuse to fall down

Refuse to stay down

lift your heart toward heaven like a hungry beggar

ask that it be filled and it will be filled.

You may be pushed down

You may be kept from rising

But no one can keep you from lifting your heart toward heaven-only you.

It is in the middle of misery that so much becomes clear

The one who says nothing good came of this is not yet listening

Walking towards sunshine

Although I am almost never alone, but I feel the loneliest ever…the most insecure and vulnerable…I’ve practically put myself in deep –lamuakhza-shit a few months ago, and couldn’t get myself out of it easily, it took me so long to get out. On the way out, I’ve lost a few things, my pride was one of them…and actually was the one thing that pushed me to fight back and try to stand up and wipe the mess out.  I am emotionally depleted, and mentally exhausted.  I did that to myself, won’t blame anyone else.  

“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”

Why Can’t I!!!

While we were traveling, we had one heck on of a recurring question? why is it so hard to “maintain” decent public parks so people can walk, sit peacefully, maybe read or just do nothing!!

of Specialized Comedy Channels

Moga is a specialized comedy channel that managed to attract lots of audience and positioned itself appropriately among other satellite channels.  It is really a very good move to finally  have a dedicated channel to air nothing but comic shows all the time and transfer some cheerful vibes, we need it the most, no??   That being said I have to say that most of the material aired is extremely disappointing, and goes beyond disgraceful sometimes.

For instance, tonight I decided to stay home and play a couch potato; flipping through the channels I came across “Nashret Akhbar el Khamesa Wal 3eshreen”. I have watched the show many times before, found it funny yet had my own concerns about the shallowness and the language used, seriously what’s so funny about “at3as allaho masa2akom!”.  Anyway, tonight ba2a the show came to its own downfall (at least to me), it was totally intolerable; leih? Coz simply one of the segments contained an explicit sexual connotation that shouldn’t be out for the world on a Friday a.k.a family day in a comic popular show that people from all age ranges watch, like , and wait for on daily basis. Do these people even think there are kids watching!! I was like…what are u thinking!!

I am not attacking this show in particular it is only an example.  As I mentioned earlier am heartily against the material presented to the large fan base of the comedy channel. I think they need to reconsider their shallow material –the ugly promos as a starter-, as some of them are not even funny, they are utterly ludicrously absurd. They just need to understand that there are so many agreeable ways to invoke a hearty laugh.

Egypt’s first Medal in Bejing

is Bronze!!!  ya di el fedi7a.

I guess this is a personal achievement for mesba7, but nothing to be proud of “nationally” speaking. My ordinary way of thinking goes like (when you pack and go to the Olympics you  go with the mindset of obtaining a gold or at least a silver medal, no!! and in case you acquired a single bronze medal…you simply don’t jump up and down claiming victory)!!

 

P.S: am happy for Mesbah, what he did is really awesome, am just totally against alleged victory
