ME

My photo
I live life enjoying as much as possible by enjoying the outdoors, savouring dinner with the family, having fun with friends, or seeing my little sister smile. I understand the value of a penny and that hard work pays off. I am very ambitious and driven and have set goals for myself to achieve. I can be very serious but yet I have a fun personality to have a good time. I feel that life is a huge journey and the key to a successful life is to live in the moment and not dwell on the past! i am an optimist. I'm a hopeless romantic and a dreamer. I love to just go outside and contemplate life while I feel the breeze in my hair and the sun kiss my cheeks! I hope to travel the world one day because there is so much beauty to see in the world. i get bored easily(something i'm not proud of). I am a huge roller coaster and adrenalin junkie and I just love life! i'm a great public speaker. i'm a person who tries to be the best i can be. :D i am also a feminist. a HUGE fan of oprah winfrey. lastly, i'm going to be a history maker.

Is change always a good thing?

In this ever dynamic life, change is inevitable. Change will happen, if not once then twice in your life. One simply cannot cheat change and live a monotonous lifestyle. As soon as God said "Let there be light", change was embedded in every single fibre of our bodies. It is in our natural state to change. Is constant change always a celebrated thing?

As human beings, change has always been a part of our lives. From the start of time, change has been present. We have progressed from the Dark Ages to where we are now. We have grown from a conservative society to a fairly liberal one. Change is progressive. Change promotes betterment. The natural human state would be to continue to improvise. In this case, change would be a positive one.

When someone says "you have changed", does it imply that you have genuinely grown into a better person or if you have stopped living the way that someone would like you to?
Sometimes change promotes submission. In certain societies, one is not allowed to question the norms and continue to change. However, change itself would overcome suppression. A revolutionary change from the clutches of oppression is always a good thing. 
Change inhibits change but it promotes change. 
Ironic?
Change is in every fibre of its meaning ironic and cliché!

Change is so mainstream that it cannot be changed. Would a comfortable life be achieved when one stops changing? God created the Earth for a purpose. For us to live in. Ignorance towards change and being unaware of the Earth that was created are not the qualities of a progressive, liberal-minded being. We have grown so much as a society that it would be a shame to stop growing and to live life now the way it is. There is so much more to discover and explore. If there is room for improvement, then there should be room for change.

Change can't always be good now, can it? Once upon a time, when we were introduced to the word communism, we rejected its idea right away. Not all of us rejected it though. Countries such as China and Russia continued to adopt the idea and changed their form of governing. we have now see the effects of that change. However, we are allowed to know that certain decisions were not made wisely. After all, we are human beings. We are allowed to realise that a certain type of change might be negative. But then again, we need change to change.

Change is a beautiful thing. it is part and parcel of being human. Progression, betterment, growth, these are all essences of change. It is undeniable that these essences are of the essence of life. The wheel is always moving, someday you're up, someday you're down. 

However, everything changes but change itself. :)

How can you go on?

I am sick. I am so SICK. I am exhausted of listening to stories about this cruel, CRUEL world. 

How can we live while at the other end of the world a woman is going through abuse? How can we eat peacefully knowing that a marriage between a 14 years old girl and 40 years old man is being celebrated? How can we sleep knowing there's a woman out there in tears because she was slapped by her husband for smiling at another man? 

How can we go on when we know that stoning is still being practised in broad daylight?

The number of untold criminal acts that go on in the world towards women is uncountable. Especially in the Arabic countries. Stoning of women to death, wife beating, child marriages. All these go behind closed doors.

What does it feel like to be helpless in such a situation? To scream but not to be heard. I wonder, are they tired of screaming, of crying? Of wishing they were never alive?
I've ju
st watched a movie, a very depressing one. I cried and cried like a baby, because I could feel their pain. Being helpless, without anyone standing up for them. The Stoning of Soraya M. You have to watch this movie, any person for humanity should watch this movie. Their practices are simply cruel and inhumane. One would cry just watching their pain.


It is based on a true story. It happens. Yes, they do.
This is the clip from the movie, the part where they stone her to death. I couldn't stop crying at this part. To fully understand the clip, I've included the link on YouTube to the full movie. Watch the full movie if you want to understand the clip. :(
