A little star: shining brighter in the darkest of nights

I know that these passing days I wasn’t that committed to blogging as I said I will, and I regret that, wholeheartedly!
It’s just painstakingly aching sometimes to write about your agonies, disappointments, the awful things that hurt you,,,, it’s really hard. The fact that you will be exposing yourself to the public, freaks me and adds insult to injury when I should positively consider it and let go of all these miseries inside and let the public treat it ,, with kindness.

As writing was my remedy when it was just hard enough for me to take in all the shits going around of me, music and songs played also a major in taking away the negative energy and spread positivism and peacefulness. And, indeed, many were the times when only music was the solution, the healing touch that detox the badly harmful feelings and tenderly deepens self control so I can maintain a healthy life, where the heart nourishes and soul tango together in peace, and the mind in peace rests, cultivating gratitude for the good things I had, have and will be having.
And this week my only remedy was “lil star, by Kelis” was my only song, my only shelter.

It was hard for me to crawl to my notebook and write about this little thing hurting my inners. I used to write in such cases, but, things changed, I changed and it seems that writing will worsens things, because I know I will end up writing down really horrible things that I might regret.
Huhhh! I’m not a regretful person, yet as of December 2014, I started becoming one, and I am still asking myself this question “if regrets and the act of regretting is a bad or good omen????” ….. don’t know, yet!

I am positive that at the darkest of times, there shall always be a little star shining, regardless. I am now this star, and you can be that too, and it’s indeed at the darkest of time when the peril of hope shines bright and we genuinely SEE THE STARS.

Let me now leave you with one of my favourite pieces for André Rieu performing “and the Waltz goes on” and I hereby say that life goes on.

 

Chill, let go, expect less, stay positive, count your blessings, and tomorrow will come the song 🙂

A message in a bottle: excerpts to my dream reader

Dear You,

I hope as this message comes to you, crossing borders, oceans, seas and continents, finds you safe, warm, health and happy.

Tomorrow will come the song is indeed my remedy and quite lullaby, which, whenever I’m entangled with pain, disappointment and sickness, heals the wounds of the soul, retrieving the smile to my face, delight to my eyes and rooting faith deep into my inner zone.

My dream reader,

As you unfold this message, let your eyes run through the lines light-heartedly. You probably don’t know me, for this end, I have created this blog to meet with others, across the globe, share with them, rejoice, cry, cheer and upload all the things occupying the heart inside. And,

“If you were music
I would listen to you ceaselessly
      And my low spirits would brighten up.”

So, here I am, seeking a reader, a committed and faithful. One who can enliven my posts with his/ her likes, comments, thoughts and insights.

Dear Reader,

I hope you are a dreamer, too. “For a  dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”   And for ever , “Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”

With love,

Dalal

blogging successfully

When I started up this blog I was full of hope that: firstly, I will get more encouragement, challenge and support to write, share, interact and meet fellow bloggers and writers; and the second is that: it’s been a year and a half now and I wasn’t that active writing!
I used to be to be a writing-holic. However, for some reason, I got lost and my lovely habit was partially fading, until I decided to sign up this blog fingers-crossed that it will boost me to write again and write more. And here I am!
I really get sick when I do not write. Yes, I do. Gosh, how all these thoughts and words can be such a coldly merciless pain when imprisoned, unintentionally, inside. And it is a grand relief letting them out. It’s like a tweeting bird leaving his cage to sing in the open air, freely and without any limits or restricting borders.

I am feeling much better now, having this #blogging101 challenge puts in the seventh heaven. I can’t be any happier!

Five key subjects that catch my heart and soul are, but not limited to, the following:

1- Literature: especially Russian literature.

2- Greek Methodology

3- Books

4- Philosophy, Psychology and Religions

5- Personal experiences, adventures and success stories.

Having these subjects in mind, I stumbled upon a number of blogs (more than five :D) and with a quick review, I’ve got to acknowledge that there are lots of promising fellow bloggers whose blogs can enlighten the minds, add knowledge and are indeed “quality blogs”.

I, wholeheartedly, wish you all the every success with your endeavours.

I would appreciate if you take a few minutes and share with me your thoughts on my blog.
Please feel free to recommend any subject and/ or blog/ blogger you think is worthy following.

Again, nice to meet you all lovely neighbours. Let’s all turn our neighbourhood into a rich and fertile environment that breeds ingenuity and cultivates creativity and valuable ideas and thoughts.

 

My name is: Dalal

Here I am, this is me, Dalal.

It is interesting indeed how names can define us, represent us and aspire our existence, past, present and future.

My name is Dalal. And Dalal is a feminine name that means coquettishness in Arabic.

As a child, I grew up naughty, troublemaker, driven by the curiosity to learn about as much as I possibly can find about. I never took no for an answer. I was always looking for adventures, and for a scouts’ girl, that triggered my curiosity and I hit the road with that urge to go out, explore and learn.

This child grew up an excellent student, though math was not my favourite subject; still, I was successfully passing it. I danced, sang, acted, wrote and delivered exceptional speeches; I was sometimes the scapegoat, server, and hope for some fellow classmates, who used to be bullied, neglected and margenalised, and were always coming to me for support and shelter. But guess what, I was bullied too. I heard the worst of names, was stabbed in the back a hundred times and never had a true friend. Yet, I was strong and courageous enough to face this all by my own and with the support of others, who were going through the same, yet, their weakness and low self esteem let them down.

And I suck this all up and overcame everything; because my mom rooted in me strength, confidence, self-respect, optimism and positive thinking. She was and still is my model and I led by example and managed to get through this all with faith and trust.

And I “grew up” and learnt that it’s only my faithfulness, trust, good deeds, positive and courageous attitudes and success-dynamic- optimism- oriented persona that can bring the best in me.

I learnt to look through the tunnel and see the light of hope. Hope always kept me faithful that one day, just one day, a song will fill my life with merry, felicity and happiness. I’ve learnt that after darkness comes light; and this light shall shine bright and spread peace and equality all across the universe.

This is why when challenged, I remind myself that tomorrow is better, beautiful, this will end, it can’t last forever, it’s not the end of the world; and tomorrow will come the song.

I learnt to turn a deaf ear. Believe in myself, because “I know who I am and who I maybe if I choose”, and “the only constancy is the inconstancy”.

That’s why this is my blog title, and my tags allude positiveness, optimism, strength, self-confidence, trust, and belief.

Fellow bloggers,

Your blogger Dalal is, in addition to aforementioned, an Aries. And this Aries, besides the not so very preferable characteristics, is a survivor, warrior, public server, hopeful, helpful and passionate ambitious young woman.

I always look for the best, aspire change, and accept challenges regardless. In my continuous “make a change” march, I fail, mess up, rebel, shed tears, fight and fight and reach my destinations, because that’s how one can only become victorious, whatsoever his/ her goals are. Everything we envision deserves a possible reality. Dreams CAN be true and become a reality. With determination, one bold faithful leader can fight and lead a pack of wolves.

This in short is a glimpse into my life. I never succumbed and accepted any failure. In turn, I fought and fought and did win my battles.

Dears,

Always keep up the high spirit; keep your fight on going; stay positive and make a difference and change. Leave your unique fingerprints for the world to remember you.

This is Dalal, this is part of the story behind my blog title.

Cheers xx

Blogging 101 Daily task #1 : Kicking Off

Here I am today taking on the #new_challenge of #blogging101.

I believe before I write a few things about myself in introduction, I should explain why I’m having this blog in the first place.
I’ve got to admit that it’s been always challenging to write about myself. The mere thought that I should let a few lines introduce  me  is absolutedly freaking, indeed! For this end, I always fell beyond this call and my words let me down as I never managed to introduce myself fairly and properly.
So ,, now I’m keeping my fingers crossed that by the time I finish this course, I will get to introduce myself perfectly well, whether this introduction be a post, or comment, or public speech or etc..

On writing, I would say:
Writing is a personal intimate affair we maintain with our personal journals and diaries.
As I write, I realise how passionate I am about making the best out of my life. And I prove to myself that writing brings the best of me and the writer in me.
Writing for me is giving birth to the divine spirit in the human being, and hence, in me; it frees the mind and soul, and builds bridges of connectivity with the world, thus allowing us to discover our being and better acknowledge our true essence.

Writing is my free space and trusted and faithful friend. In writing, I put all thoughts and insights down together; letting myself digging into the very depths in me. In writing I find myself. I return to myself; reconciling, recreating and excelling. In writing, I find relief, shelter and peace.

I guess this so far should give an insight to why I’m here. And for the “who I am” part, I will leave it to the end of this challenge, as my writings (assignments) shall hopefully give a glimpse to who I am and why blogging is so important to me.

Dear fellow bloggers,

I very much look forward to your valuable feedback and contribution. Please feel free to like/ dislike, comment and share with me your thoughts and opinions. There is always a room for everyone 😉

Cheers,

Dalal
