To the last bits of 2018

Published

on

Here’s what I learned…

  1. Hate is easy, to despise someone for the hurt they have caused is so easy, the challenge is in forgiving them, in focusing more on the good that they have once done to you rather than the wounds they have caused you.
  2. Letting go of a grudge doesn’t make you naïve, it makes you so damn strong, because again, forgiveness takes a whole lot more courage than holding on to rage.
  3. The happiness that comes from materialistic things doesn’t last long, unlike the memories that shape our lives. That is what truly counts, and that is why documenting moments should be your number one aspiration.
  4. It’s okay for people to leave, and it’s okay for you to grief their absence. What’s not okay, is for you to keep blaming yourself on them walking out on you. In the end, that was their choice and not yours. It was who you are and they knew it from the very beginning. So go easy on yourself, it’s not your fault.
  5. It all starts with you loving yourself, knowing your worth and then everything else follows. You’ll then be able to choose those worthy of being in your life, you’ll choose a healthier path, you’ll refuse certain treatments and let go of the toxicity in your life. You just have to learn your worth.
  6. Bringing joy to people in your life, brings you happiness in return. So want to feel better already? Remind those you love of how much they mean to you.
  7. One day, it will all be clear. Your purpose in life, what you want to do, who you want to become. It might be blurry right now, but I assure you, one day it will become clear and when that day comes, do everything in your power to fulfill that purpose.
  8. If you don’t seem to find that sliver of hope, then create your own. Be there for the people you love, their happiness will eventually make yours come to light.

And so to the last bits of 2018, I personally say that it is all okay. To the best friend who gave up on me, sorry I couldn’t do better. To my person who thought I was too much to handle, I’m sorry I couldn’t recover faster. To the grades I lost that made me not make it to the honor list, I’m sorry for not studying harder.

To the last bits of 2018, I say it’s all okay, because I’m now teaching myself to walk alone and to actually enjoy it. I’m learning to forgive, myself especially, for all that went wrong and to love myself even the bits I don’t fancy much.

Now, it’s your turn to do the same. Turn the page on all your sorrows and learn that when the time to walk away comes, walk with your head held up high, for 2018 didn’t fail you.

Israa Al-Ghareeb: A Story of Monstrosity and Cruelty

Published

By

Israa Al-Ghareeb, a 21-year old Palestinian victim, victim of cruelty and injustice in a world who wrongfully views honor, a victim of cold blooded murder by her very own family members…

The incident provoked the entire Arab world who till this moment are still sharing her story and flooding the internet with the hashtag #كلنا_اسراء_غريب, and now everyone knows the case of this young lady and how she was killed over a family dispute.

 

 

 

Here’s the story of Israa Al-Ghareeb, and what the action that must be taken. 

Israa Al-Ghareeb is, well was, an aspiring makeup artist who recently she got engaged and one day she went out with her fiancé and her sister to get to know each other like any newly engaged couple, and to document the moment, the sister took a video of both Israa and her fiancé.

Hell let loose when the video was shared with Israa’s father and brothers by her cousin, filling their minds with lies and that Israa is dishonoring the family’s name. The lies that led her father and brothers to brutally hit her, causing her a fraction in her spine which lead to her hospitalization.

Later, her father and brothers came back and continued to hit her and one nurse was able to record the beating and her screaming for help. In the end, Israa got hit in the head which caused a heart attack and resulted in her death… a brutal one.

The ones who are supposed to protect, ended up to be the ones who kill. The ones who were supposed to be her safe haven, let hell loose on her.

Now, this is surely not the first case and shamefully won’t be the last as long as this is the mentality of so many parents and siblings who believe this is the way to honoring their name. This is nothing but pure monstrosity, one that no religion ever called for and is nothing but sexist traditions that are not part of any religion.

Justice must be sought by sharing Israa’s story, spreading awareness about the case and plead for people’s to understand. Understand the unfairness and cruelty that girls go through in our Arab world, and in order to put limit to it, there must be strict laws and rules that put an end to family abuse.

 

We pray to god for Israa and any young lady suffering a similar fate.

‘Bela Plastic’: Initiative Launched in Dahab To Limit The Use of Plastic

Published

By

Bela Plastic‘ campaign is an initiative launched in Dahab in an effort to protect the environment and marine life in Dahab.

President of the City Council of Dahab, Tarak El-Baz announced the launch of the initiative in early July, the campaign will include workshops and trainings to help raise awareness about the danger that plastic use impose on the marine life. These workshops will be targeted towards the hotels and restaurants, where plastic is most used.

Moreover, banners and warning signs will be placed across the city of Dahab as another way of spreading awareness and caution to tourists. What’s even more impressive is that volunteer tourism organizations and a number of dive centers will take part in the initiative by cleaning up the beaches of Dahab.

Such a remarkable step follows a decision that was taken three months ago by Governor Ahmed Abdullah to ban the single-use plastic in the Red Sea governorate. 

Another initiative was launched in South Sinai reserve called “Khali al-Bahar Yetnafes”, also targeting the hotels and resorts. Aiming to raise more awareness on the critical issue of single-use plastic.

We hope to see the results of these initiatives very soon, and for the outcome to be apparent in the next few months, especially with Dahab being a touristic destination for its environment and stunning marine life that attracts many tourists, preserving its sites is certainly a must.
