New Yorker. 25 year old, wide awake in a city that never sleeps. Refusing to grow up since 1987. Writer. Photographer. Foodie. Cook. Traveler. Sarcasm queen. Bookworm. I would kill for the Nobel Peace Prize. Kind of ridiculous. Kind of awesome. Kind of ridiculously awesome. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today."
"Never a mistake, always a lesson.
خطأ أبدا، ودائما درسا."
"Allah sometimes takes us into troubled waters, not to drown us, but to cleanse us."
"If patience is sour then its result is sweet."
"الحب كالحرب من السهل أن تشعلها..ومن الصعب أن تخمدها
Love is like War, it is easy to initiate it, but it is impossible to cease it."
"I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me."
"You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go."
"Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass."
