Gaza ~ An open air prison

but they have forgotten that
Allah is above them” 😥

Equivocation

I read her blog, again and again.
This time with a little more attention.

I read the lines.
I read in-between the lines.

And then I realized,
that
the tears she talks about,
are not the tears of joy. 😮

A Day Without Spectacles

Thursday, July 2, 08:43,

After travelling for around 1 hours 25 minutes I had reached the place where I had to spend the next 8 hours. It was another routine affair of travelling the same distance and resuming my project work. After deboarding from the bus, I took a walk from the bus stand in the way of public transit and reach the center within 15 minutes of time. I decided to go to cafeteria & take something to eat. As it was slightly hot outside, I ended up taking a cold coffee to drink. 😛

With sipping the freeze coffee that tasted great, I reach the upper floor using the staircases. I occupied my workstation and kept my belongings at the place. I took the water bottle out from my bag, and then searched for the specs box that I couldn’t find. After searching in all the zips of the bag I got to know that I have forgot to bring my specs. I stood up from the seat and told a close by colleague that I forgot my friend back home. 😛 In laugh she said, ‘What??’ I added, I forgot my glasses. 😦 😥 Calmly she said, not a problem it happens at times. And with that I spent my half of the Thursday without any vision correctness. Normally, I don’t wear my glasses when I am travelling, it has been a habit. I always keep my specs within the box and place it in a specific spot of my bag. And on that very day it didn’t happened where it used to be. 😐

I am really not blind, – 2.25 prescription only. I worked in the similar environment I was working for over past 15 days. I was aware of the paths to travel on the floor.
From the past 5 years I am wearing glasses and it was second time this had happened. The last time it was okay because I was not doing anything that needed accurate sight. But this time it was about a lot, where did I put my keys? Is that a bug or just a dot? How do I know I’m not stepping on a nail?

The oddest part for me, though, was not being able to see anybody’s face as I walked around the floor. As I mentioned, I knew where I needed to go without having to pay attention to the markings. But when it came to people I would walk past and see them and their body language, but their face was a complete blur. Many questions emerged in my mind, are they looking at me? Are they smiling? Frowning? Are they talking to me??

As I previously stated, I don’t wear my glasses while travelling. An incident that occurred with me when travelling in a rapid metro. I was seated in front of a group of girls who all appeared to be friends. I was listening to music and feeling sleepy. 😛 When you’re not able to see clearly, you tend to look in a direction with strange looks and blinking eyes, and without any reason I was directed towards the group of the girls. One of the girl from the group waved her hands in front of me and indicated in a questioning way! I signed her to wait and I put my glasses on, she started laughing and said I thought you were gazing at me but you’re myopic. 😀 😛

Having no idea was really weird. I knew that I was looking at them, but could not tell if they were looking back (I assume I freaked a few people out by staring). It made me feel completely disconnected. 😛

If you wear glasses, perhaps try it for few hours. 😉

Blatant Disregard

He is someone
who still text her
when She hasn’t replied for hours.

He watches her
giving other people attention
while She ignore’s him.

He just handles all the bullshit
She throws at him
and in the end
He still loves her. 🙂

“Life is about the Little Things Keeping You Happy”

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things..

I think it’s important to find the little things in everyday life that makes you happy. Throughout our days, we choose not to think about the unsolvable paradox that is life. Instead, we try to spend our time on this earth peacefully, enjoying as much of it as possible.

We distract ourselves with jobs, careers and television. We make goals for ourselves and indulge in simple pleasures.

We get preoccupied with all the monotonous work, believing that a lost job or breakup is the end of life as we know it. We spend our lives chasing ideas and pursuits of riches. But where does our real happiness come from?

I read somewhere that : The big things should keep you busy and the little things should keep you happy.

Your career, your goals, your work, your family — those are the big things. Laughing with your best friends, a great cup of coffee — those are the little things. The big things are important, but life wouldn’t be worth living without the small things.

It’s important to realize that big things are just that, things. Big things are factors that distract you, that take up your time and your attention.

The big things are paying your bills and renting your first apartment. They are working towards that promotion and finding that person to marry. While these should make you happy and productive, they aren’t the things that are important.

The little things are the ones you need to pay attention to. The little things are what’s going to save you when your career ends or your marriage comes crashing down.

The little things are sunrises and sunsets, a great day and watching a stranger help the homeless.

The little things are the balcony in your home or the fresh water in the refrigerator. It’s the walks through Central Park and the silence near that place, you love it so much. It’s the warm weather and the fall breezes.

We forget to pay attention to the little things and shift our focus to attaining the big things. We forget to look up at the buildings or at the people we love because we’re too focused on getting to those bigger things we find so important.

We forget to appreciate the music we’re listening to and the food we’re eating. We forget to notice the artwork around us and the people next to us.

The big things are important, of course. They give us reason and purpose. They drive our lives, keeping us busy and motivated through a seemingly purposeless world.

They should distract us from the monotony of life and instill a sense of drive. However, we should not become absorbed in the distraction. That’s all the big things are, distractions.

They aren’t the real reasons to live or the things that bring the most joy. The things that bring joy and true happiness are the things we don’t pay much regard to, and it’s time to start realizing that small things can make big differences.

Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things..
