    Overcoming Fear

    November 8, 2020 by

    Fear is the biggest obstacle you will ever encounter in life. I speak from experience, not just my own. Talk about fear and everybody cringes. We are wired by it, it tell us how to live. Until it doesn’t. If we want. Are you afraid of something now? Good. That means you can start there… Read more

  • The Grand Finale of My Raging Twenties: Be Here

    October 14, 2020 by

    A little more than a year ago I sat on my yoga mat and set an intention for how I want to be during my 28th year on this planet. I breathed and I made a vow to myself to BE HERE for all of it. I would actively practice my state of presence no… Read more

    How Do We Determine Our Value as Women?

    September 7, 2020 by

    The issue with letting people walk all over you is that you do not truly understand your own value as women. You grow up hearing many things the top two of which are either you are a smart and strong girl, or you are a beautiful girl. If you heard both, then you were lucky… Read more

    August 30, 2020 by

    Killing The Childhood Dream We have a problem. Many people are unhappy, and unsatisfied with the lives they lead.

    Exposing Myself to Newness

    July 20, 2020 by

    This is a post about exposing ourselves to the foreign. I hope the image that I chose gives you an idea of what it felt like for me to explore the gorgeous and foreign Beatles Ashram in Rishikesh, India. But anyways, let’s get to it! What is foreign? I live in Lebanon, moving to India… Read more

    So sit with me now over this half full cup of coffee and tell me, are you merely surviving or are you relentlessly exposing your naked self to the vast world of purpose, pain and passion?

  • What if the only thing in life you can control is your response?

    June 15, 2020 by

    We ought to live like stars floating in a dark universe, we ought to collide with one another and implode like big bangs dispersing love and light and sheer tragedy into nothingness; only to experience rebirth in form, spirit and depth again and again.

  • The Thing about pain is

    May 25, 2020 by

    Let’s face it, it is impossible to live life without experiencing any form of pain. Pain is a part of living as much as love and joy and fear. When we talk about the inescapable nature of living with one pain or another we must also consider healing. Healing is not the reversal of pain.… Read more

  • Now that we are human again, what do we do?

    April 3, 2020 by

    A thousand rivers can flow seamlessly beneath your feet, and you could still manage to find and count the rocks that are in the water’s way. The river doesn’t mind and the rocks have no qualms with their position but you do. You cannot but want the rocks out of the river, by its side… Read more

  • The Illusion that We Are in Control

    March 20, 2020 by

    I have come to a shy realization that I am not the only one who’s searching for myself in this big wild world. You know?

  • Are You Weak or Strong? You Can Be Both

    November 4, 2019 by

    Weakness cannot be acknowledged if you were never strong, and strength cannot be perceived if you never once felt powerless. The contrast makes the experience all the more justifiable and magical.

  • Lebanon; Extinguishing Fires and Fears

    October 22, 2019 by

    It felt like a merger between Coachella and Egypt’s Tahrir Square, it felt like an alternate universe where hands only carried Lebanese flags and families from different walks of life walked side by side. Young men, some dressed to the nines, and others shirtless sang on top of their lungs.

    October 8, 2019 by

    What happened to the rose colored glasses? They have become high tech V R spectacles; but we are still the same. Some questions used to be a lot harder to answer ten years ago, and the thought that 10 years from now the questions I have today will have simpler answers is comforting. It’s funny… Read more

  • You Have a Choice NOW; Will You Leap?

    September 25, 2019 by

    To think that life is a predictable series of events is naive, but it is also comforting in some way. I believe that that is why we tend to grow softer and less exposed within our little comfort zones. We uncover so many of the possible unknowns and we just live knowing one thing or… Read more

  • How to Lose Your Mind the Right Way

    September 23, 2019 by

    Life ends abruptly, it gets cut short despite how long we live. Life doesn’t care whether you achieved your dreams or not. It doesn’t pay attention to how ready you are for making changes or staying the same. So why OH WHY do we wait SO LONG to do things the way we want to?

  • To Live for the Joy of Living Not for the Lack of Dying

    September 19, 2019 by

    How do we stick to our dreams? How do we turn hope into action? Why is it easier for us to leave it till tomorrow? Why do we become experts at laboring for others, and novices in learning what we want? I’ve been contemplating this transformation deeply, and to say that life doesn’t get in… Read more

    September 12, 2019 by

    So ask your brave friend what they do when they are feeling like cowards, ask your friend who is dealing with her trauma through therapy if it’s actually making a difference for her. We must remember that what happens behind closed doors, and what we think and say offline is a huge part of life too.

  • Are You a Wild One?

    August 31, 2019 by

    We think we know, until we don’t. We believe that we have gotten to the bottom of something until we start noticing the shaky ground and down we go. Some people stop trying, they no longer wish to learn. Some have had enough shakiness and have gotten weary of doubt. So, many choose to stop… Read more
