He wants me because of my body,
He wants me because of my hair,
He wants me because of my lips,
Not because he cares.

He wants me because I walk tall,
He wants me because I’m well dressed,
He wants me because I’m fun,
Not because he thinks I’m the one.

He wants me because I’m “a turn on”,
He wants me because I get him hard,
He wants me because of his fantasies,
Not because of my heart.

When guys like this come your way,
Smile real nice and walk away,
Don’t be angry, rude, or mean,
Show that loser,
the ass he’ll never touch.

“I expected it…”

What does it even make a difference when you “expect” something is going to happen? Even when you expect an event, it throws you down with a punch to the gut once it happens.

We expected it to finish, we expected him to die, we expected s/he was cheating … It still hurts just as bad as if it would have come as a surprise.

You would think that when you expect something bad is going to happen you would be a bit prepared, but honestly, nothing you do will help you prepare for the heartache, confusion and sleepless nights.

But Then There Was Him…

As I grew, I began to realize the beauty of this world.
The beauty of the Lebanese sunrise on the mediterranean;
The beauty of a star filled sky in Lubbock;
The beauty of the Christmas lights on the houses in Chicago.

As I grew, I began to understand the beauty of this world.
The beauty of helping an elder cross the street;
The beauty of feeding a stray animal that sits at the corner of the office;
The beauty of watching family members walk through the airport gates as they come home after a long time.

As I grew, I experienced the beauty of this world.
The beauty of walking the stage at graduation;
The beauty that comes from excitement while on an airplane;
The beauty of feeling independent at my first real job.

As I grew, I thought I had understood what true beauty in this world was,
But then there was him…

At that moment, I learned how to feel beauty with every fiber in my being.
The beauty of his lips on mine;
The beauty of his fingers on my skin;
The beauty of his warm breath on my neck;
The beauty in the sound of his heartbeat.

At that moment, I learned how to feel beauty with every fiber in my being.
The beauty of his single dimple that makes my heart rush;
The beauty of his dark eyes that make me blush;
The beauty of his voice every time he says a word.
The beauty in his tight hugs when he doesn’t want me to go.

At that moment, I learned how to feel beauty with every fiber in my being.
The beauty of falling asleep in his arms;
The beauty of waking up to his kiss;
The beauty of the fire we ignite;
The beauty of the passion in our chest.

And now, I know,
that beauty I felt,
will never come again,
except from him.

Healthy Living Healthy Families – Doha, Qatar Seminar

After months of preparations, dedication, communication, and frustration, today we hold the reception for the two-day Healthy Living Healthy Families seminar in Qatar.

The Seminar was organized by myself and two others, with the support of the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study Program.

We have selected KL-YES alumni from Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Oman to be a part of this exciting seminar. Speakers from the Qatar Diabetes association, Aspire, Weill Cornell and other associations will be joining us on Friday and Saturday to educate our participates about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.

Presentations and activities will be held so towards the end of the seminar, the participants may present to us their idea on how they are going to raise awareness on healthy living back in their community.

I am very excited to see everything come together tonight! Also, I am very excited to meet all the participants and to be a part of this informative seminar.

This weekend, is going to be awesome!

Goals and Dreams

“Follow your dreams”, they say. “Work hard for your goals”, they support. However, what is the point of it all if you have no goals and dreams in life?

Yes, I am a 22-year-old with no future goals, or dreams. I know I want to finish my education, but when or where isn’t decided. That’s the only thing on my mind pretty much. It can happen this year, or next year, or in five years, I don’t know, and I am fine with the uncertainty.

I do not want to start my own business, I do not want to run a company. I do not know what I want, and I am okay with that.

People in life put too much pressure on each other. They make it seem like life has to be lived a certain way. Certain things need to be achieved, goals needs to be put in place, and dreams need to be honored.

My take on that? basically, no. I’m just going through life day by day, and that’s okay.

I’m fine with not having anything to look forward to. So many people live in the future before it’s even here, they forget to enjoy the present. So many people outline their lives for the next five, ten years, and I just find that too tiring on one’s soul.

If you have goals and dreams and know what you want to achieve and when you want to achieve it, that’s fantastic. Also, if you have no goals and dreams and are just dealing with life as it comes your way, that’s fantastic too.

There is no right or wrong to this, there is just inner peace with what you feel.
