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, […]

Don’t let the unexpected ruin your expected.

I have been following the direction of the wind of life since the beginning of time. I listened to my parents and went to school where I studied hard and got top grades. Then I joined what they have always mentioned “The best university in the region aka The American University” I failed the english […]

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 […]

How I use social media to inspire myself and others. 

During the last few days, a fleeting thought has been visiting me. “How about quitting the internet for a while” After giving it some attention, I bullet pointed in my head what I gain from using social media: Facebook they say that a study has been carried and found out that people get depressed after […]

Read this if you want to do the human race a favor. 

I am out of writing ideas; my brain has been sweating every day to produce these various pieces of articles I have been writing. It feels like my mind has gotten into a numbing stage where ideas have stagnated to emerge. So today I decided to write about what’s it like not having any idea […]

The 5ive Emotions of Love

One of the most basic human needs for a prosperous and meaningful life is sharing its moments with someone you love. A while ago I learned about what brings my life true and lasting joy. I was blindfolded when I thought that getting rich or acquiring things is the direction I should take to fill […]

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, […]
