I know this sound like a weird way to start my post but let me share this story with you all , Last Wednesday  I got to know that one of my colleagues is resigning – after 13 years working at this college – she decided to take this step which I would call “courageous step”.  The reason why she decided to take such step is because she wanted as she said to start “ living her OWN life “ Man you have no idea how this simple line changed my whole perspective about work\life thing .

I went back home and her story is stuck in my head !  million of questions were on head

working and working ,  and then what ?
work – home – evening classes .. what for?
what am I passionate about

I truly believe that we all here for a reason , we all are gifted some way , and along life journey I guess we will figure out what are we good at and once we do , aren’t we supposed to dedicate ourselves to do what we actually good at \ what we truly love and passion about

same day when I took my after noon nap I had this dream I was on the train she was telling me “ Nouf , it did not took them so long to get my Luggage “ and train was too fast .. but eventually I arrived safe … Ok readers don’t ask me the message behind this dream cause honestly I don’t know.

Am pretty sure that incident like this is a message to me and others to find our own passionate and enjoy life .

talk to you all soon

Some times i feel lost! Like a person who doesn't know what to do! Where i want to be? Is this the life that i want to live? You know why? Because of the stress! But when i set and think about everything in my life and every decision i made! I found that everything heppened is happened for a reason!! But we have to choose what we want carefully, and each one of us should have a goal to work hard for it, a goal that he love it and want it deeply.

My Experience with NO Snapchat

kind of awkward  post I know but I thought it would be nice to share my experience with you guys living for almost two weeks without snapchat

How did it start 

I always felt like I have to reduce checking on snapchat , every morning I wake up am like ok where is my phone whats new on snapchat and that is totally unhealthy
So I felt I should stop using it for awhile , after reading Michelle Phan Book specially the social media or digital detox part am like hmmm now it is the right time to do it ,  the same day I finished reading the book I was like Okay this is it! lets delete this App and have little peaceful break

Addiction Symptoms

Can Creating a loving world a "possible" mission ?

When you think about it ....we are all human being "regardless" of labels "we" have created it 

scattered thoughts.....

living for almost a year in a complete different culture , being exposed to this whole new experience  made me realize that we are all same ...

I had friends from different parts of the world , with different backgrounds , different religion . I was not sure if being around  so many people with variety of differences was a safe enough for me  to do , I admit that I had this misconception that I might not be "welcomed" cause I cover my head but I guess such fears were implanted in my head due to what was presented in media , though , I literally stopped watching/reading news. But all what is out there highlights


But in community I lived with , I have learned that we  all have a goal which is larger than us .... help others to flourish , we were always there for each other whenever we needed support , we ar…

Living my dream

When I was a little girl I remember telling my siblings that I have two personalities; the first is Noof as they know and the other one is the American personality and I named her "Suzie" how funny is that XDit has always been my dream to visit USA and experience living there .... Guess what

Today I am at United States pursing my masters at University of Pennsylvania 
No Magic was required to make my dream came true all I needed was to "believe that it will happen in the right time " I know this might sound like ridiculous topic to talk about and what a goal !! to me it is not just to live the western life, it is to know my true self without any instructions, to appreciate everything that I have. Also to learn how to be independent. Most importantly I want to inspire others.

The journey to get here took lots of courage and determination I had to be sure that this is what I really wanted and I have to be clear why do I really want it. For me this has made a huge shi…
