Thank you note (July 2nd)

Once in a while I like to send thank you notes to random people i meet in my life journey, they might one day stumble upon my blog and read it; you never know!

Today’s thank you note is a bit late.. but it needs to be said!

I’d like to thank the African French lady that helped me and my brothers finish our paper work for the visa! It was a very crowded day that day we went, and a lot of angry customers applying for visa, but she kept calm and handled the situation, and got the job done!

I applaud her for her work ethics and putting her customers first!

Thank you dear!

With All this Hatred, We Unite!

I am not a political person at all, I dont like to intervene into political discussions; I’m a very peaceful person and believe the best in people despite all the wars and conflicts, but I believe there is something I need to highlight within the situation we currently live in. 

For those who have been following the news recently, know that Qatar, one of the GCC countries, has been in a blockade from its neighboring countries for about two weeks now!

As a Qatari this really saddens me especially coming from sister countries that we consider family; our nations have more ties and relations with one another than any other countries and we have always considered ourselves as one.

But within all this sadness that has been brought to us, good blossims and grows! Despite the hatred and accusations, Good has brought our nation TOGETHER!  Today the unity of our own people, nationals, expats and everyone living on this land, has grown on so many levels!

The amount of pride, persistence, generousity, helping one another, being kind to one another, respecting one another, treating everyone as one, and standing side by side has made us stronger than ever! I am proud to be living in such a country and wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Despite the sad situation we are in, good has been able to overcome it!

As Allah (swt) says in the Quran:

“… وَعَسَىٰٓ أَن تَكْرَهُوا۟ شَيْـًٔا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰٓ أَن تُحِبُّوا۟ شَيْـًٔا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ”

Which means you may dislike something although it is good for you, or like something although it is bad for you: God knows but you do not.

The love of my life… My Mother!

Walking towards the mosque and back with my mother….is one of the biggest blessings in life!

Just having her by my side keeps me in peace with my life… I owe her everything.. as she is the main reason I am where I am today…
I will never be able to repay her… but will keep trying to my whole life ❤️

Women. We. Unite!

Today at work, I found myself in a room filled with men!

I work in a telecommunications company, specifically in the product development team, and its very hard to find women, National or expats, present in such departments! I was called in for a meeting with one of the vendors with the heads of all departments included, which were all men -_-

Why is it that these fields are dominated by men? Women are more than capable of holding such leading positions in technology and innovation!!

When you’re in such a position, you tend to find that your trying to prove yourself not once but twice; as a qualified manager in the corporate world, and as a woman that is as equal to all the men that were sitting in that room!

Unfortunately, this was not the first time that I have been in such meetings, it sometimes gets worse where the number of men in the room increases, but your still the only woman in that room!

Even though I did feel some pressure to prove my presence and the additional value I bring to such meetings, but most importantly  I feel PROUD…

I am proud to prove such stereotypes wrong! Women are as strong, as qualified to hold such tasks and steer such meetings, and most important as strong to control a room filled with men!

Such incidences make me want to work more towards motivating and coaching women, young women in specific, to crash any walls that stand in their way of pursuing their dreams in all fields of life; there is no specific field for one gender or the other..

Lets unite and create a better world for the younger generations; both boys and girls, Girls to work towards an equal opportunity to prove themselves in this brutal world, and for boys to appreciate having leading women in the world in all fields.

 

 

Change your Life with this One Thing!

When you get up in the morning, take a minute to look in the mirror and smile at yourself, give yourself a pep talk and even flirt with your reflection..

You will find that there is nothing that can stand in the way of your happiness and that you are able to conquer all!

Make that part of your morning routine; treat it as important as washing your face and brushing your teeth!

Do it, and your life will change!
