Day 9: Ten People that Have Influenced me

Son-of-God-Diego-Morgado-01-copy

  1. Jesus Christ: I can’t really say enough or say anything.
  2. St. Paul: One of the greatest minds in history.
  3. St. Peter: I relate to Peter and I love his transformation pre and post resurrection. I love how this transformation is right in the Bible for all of us to see. It shows that people of great faith were just like us in the beginning.
  4. Chris McCandless: This guy abandons society, give his entire savings account to charity, and camps out in Alaska. To learn more, please watch Into the Wild. I can’t begin to describe how inspired I am by this guy. His courage to follow his heart and pursue what he feels is right, despite how people thought he was crazy/stupid , is my biggest motivation.
  5. My mother: I have never seen anybody love me like she does.
  6. My father: The best father in the world!
  7. My sister Mariam: inspires to LIVE more by her ambition and thirst for life.
  8. My brother Peter: inspires to have fun and take it easy.
  9. My grandmother: One of the kindest people I have ever met, whose death still haunts me and I wish I had spend more time with her.
  10. My uncle Emad: One of the kindest people I have ever met, whose death still haunts me and I wish I had spend more time with him.
  11. My uncle Hany: One of the kindest people I have ever met, whose death still haunts me and I wish I had spend more time with him.p168385_p_v8_aa

Wonderful Wednesday: Warm Lemon Water in the Morning

IMG_4017

Dear Wonderful Reader, 

I present to you Warm Lemon Water for a more wonderful-looking-and-feeling you!

This simple step has been a part of my morning routine for the past two weeks and it has proven itself to be a success. I have researched and it appears that lemon has great beauty and health benefits (hence, all the beauty and skin products that are made with lemon/lemon extract). The list could go on and on but I’ll just present you with the top benefits.

Benefits of Drinking Warm Lemon Water

1. Clears Skin

because vitamin C and the other antioxidant found in lemon help revive and rejuvenate the skin, clear acne and blemishes, and decrease wrinkles.

2. Improves Digestion

by flushing out toxins and prompting the production of bile.

3. Helps Cure the Common Cold

and aids against immune system deficiencies.

4. Boosts the Sense of Well-Being

because of its refreshing taste, scent, and color.

The Recipe

1. Warm up the water. I usually drink it at 120 Fahrenheit and I use regular water from my faucet.

2. Squeeze half a lemon in your cup, preferably fresh or no more than a day old (make sure to keep the other half of the lemon in the fridge).

3. Pour the warm water in your cup and start your morning the right way!

Enjoy…

I couldn’t help but wonder… is it time for change?

Always loved and was amused by how Carrie always started her articles by this phrase so I’mma use it lol.

I failed two of my courses this quarter and got fired from my job and it’s all due to procrastination and my perpetual habit of always being late and missing deadlines.

I couldn’t help but wonder if the universe is trying to tell me something. I feel like everything is being put into perspective and I’m finally unable to get away with irresponsibility like I used to before.

I think the universe is telling me that its time for CHANGE and a NEW BEGINNING as I’m approaching 22 and officially leaving adolescence behind.

21 was one of the most confused years in my life I gotta say.

How did you feel at 22?

Please share your thoughts with me, I’d really appreciate it.

I won’t go down without a fight

So even though I got fired, I felt obligated to leave my work place as liberated and “true to myself” (if that makes sense) as much as I can. Thus, I decided to express to them all the things that have been going wrong and no one wanted to talk about. I really don’t know how are they going to treat the truths that I have communicated to them but I really don’t care because at the end of that day I can sleep knowing that I did what I had to do.
