Thank you for wrapping my heart and twirling it into your love.

All the time, all the energy, all the health, all the thoughts and all of me is yours. For the past many years, I have been blind folded, I have been manipulated, and I have been miss directed on how to love you and embrace you. It has turned out that loving you is way […]

Live your life impressing yourself

I was consistent for more than 60 days. I would write first thing in the morning and it felt great finishing a piece which started out of nothing. Then I read that to be a good writer, you have to focus on quality not quantity; it didn’t resonate or sound right with me. Close people […]

Sometimes failure, is just failure.

Yesterday I couldn’t find anyone to surround myself and have a nice conversation with, so I tuned in to an episode of Silicon Valley, E1 S3. Gavin Belson, Ceo of Hooli, made a statement which influenced me to write about in today’s post. He approached the podium, placed his arms, elbows straight, on the edge, […]

You can not control change, you can only embrace it. 

A good friend of mine just got divorced a week ago. He called me in shock and said “I didn’t see this coming, as if she snapped her fingers out of loving me. Yesterday he texted “pray for me as hurricane Erma is approaching and I am fleeing Florida” One day he was happily married, […]

Approaching my 35th, one thing I learned, It doesn’t really matter after all.

I just noticed that I have less hair on my left thumb than on my right, the ratio is 6:10 to be exact. A few years ago I also noticed that my right leg is a cm or two longer. Also my right ear seems to be poking out more than the left. What’s that […]

Dear life, I will be 35 soon; please no more surprises.

I know you’re tired of reading all about these self help blogs which end up doing you more harm than good. I know how hard it is to wake up every morning longing for a better day. I know how painful it feels worrying about the future you’re always afraid of. I know how your […]

Getting lots of money will not make you rich, passions will. 

10 years ago my Dad advised me to buy a house. Since my childhood I developed a spending habit that I would never put all my sweat from work in a materialistic need. My Dad’s words at the time were of a deeper impact than my outlook on the future: “Sherif, you must buy a […]

You only get strong when you have used up all your weak.  

I have been hit, severely so, more psychologically than physically. The most painful I have taken so far was when my relation with a beautiful woman ended. How did I react? Like most normal human beings, I stopped eating or better put the feeling of hunger diminished, I exercised a lot, got thinner, isolated myself, […]

Here’s what happens when you become a giver. 

One of my relatives, a 50-year old woman, has always been smiling every time I visit or talk to her on the phone. Her tone of voice, body language and the way her facial expressions look emit happy emotions at most, if not all, times. Her name is May. She lost a lot in her […]

What to do when your morning coffee cup ☕️ finishes.

Don’t go for another one; let the satisfaction of the caffeine intake take its time to reach all your blood vessels. If you’re not a coffee drinker, pretend you are one for the duration of this post. Why do I drink coffee first thing in the morning? The only reason is because I love the […]
