Too dependent on systems!!!!!

On Wednesday, I kept on running "well not literally running, you get what I mean" after the purchasing guys to finish an order for an item we truly need on Saturday. My nerves were tight as it seems they were all taking their own sweet time. Until, 15 min before the end of the working day .. The guy comes to my office and tells me : "sorry, the system is down, we cant process your order".


What annoyed me, so what if the system isn't working!!! I don't know the procedures that are needed but I know that we as humans should think beyond the system. What a system could do, definitely we as humans can do!! Why didn't the person responsible just give out his signature or something!!

Is this is the computer curse?? We become so dependent on them that we cant move without them!! If this is the situation now, I just pray all save the future generation!!!

Social Responsibilty

Whenever we are invited to a social gathering and we cant go, we look for excuses. Sometimes the excuses are geniun enough, and sometimes they are like hangers .. we use them to get rid of our social responsibilty.

taking about myself, I always feel very guilty after giving out an excuse even if it was geniune. I think it came from my family background where lots of "loam" on you if you didnt attend that gathering, that makes you say: "I wish if I did".

Can social responsibilty be a burden more than a blessing? why??

Well I think it became this way .. I love social gathering only if they were at a good number .. not every other day !!!

Maktub?

In Alchemist, there was a part when Fatma asked the boy to go search for his treasure. She said, if it was meant for them to be togther he will come back.


I keep thinking about us. Well all beleive in fate, and thats what will happen is what is meant to happen. But we wouldnt ever let fate drive us!! we all work for what we want, and wouldnt let this life lead us to what we are suppose to get this life.

is our attitude best? or its best to let fate decide?

My Dream Last Night

I had an "entertaining" yet "disturbing" dream last night ..

My dream was that my husband was captured as a hostage in Iraq *and that during Saddam Hussien's rule*. As a faithful wife, my duty was to get him out of there .. so I did (the dream didnt have details how did we plan his escape). Any way, we were out there in Iraq running away from the gurds. It included lots of running, swimming in the water to hide from the gurds, running through resturants, and separating from my husband to run but meet him again somwhere in the lake. Iraq was beatiful!!! really with lots of lakes and fountains and gardens!!

anyway, the run ended in Oman's embassy in Iraq taking into account that no one is allowed to enter the diplomatic land of something like that.

I'd blame this dream on the book am reading about a wife and a husband writing thier diries when the husband was taken hostage in Iraq !

قص صبع ولا تغير طبع


بعض الأشخاص لا يتغيرون مهما تغيرت الظروف والأحوال .. يبقون كما كانوا بطباعهم نفسها (وأتحدث هنا عن السيئة منها) و أعجب لما؟؟ خاصة عندما ينبههم و يواجههم الكثير مؤكدين أن عليهم أن يتغيروا للأفضل أو على الأقل أن يبعدوا بشرهم عن الناس
الله يهديهم

قل خيرا أو اصمت

أنا أؤمن بالمقولة هذه .. وأظن أنها أساس العلاقة الطيبة بين الناس .. صحيح أن الصراحة مطلوبة من الناس ولكن الصراحة
الجارحة والتي لن تضيف إلى سامعها شيئا تؤثر سلباً على العلاقة بين القائل والمتلقي
أفضل أن أبقى صامتة حابسة تعليقي الساخر لنفسي ولا أن أجرح أي انسان مهما كان

Dilemma!!!!

I have a problem and I need you guys to help !!!!!


Ok, now that I know who would be in my team at work they are 3 men and 1 lady ..

Now, 2 of the men are already working with me .. the other one has to move from another department.

today, the 2 guys (actually out of the insistance of one of them) called me for a meeting .. they were "warning" me about the 3rd guy and how much trouble he could be. Well I've dealt with that guy and I understand what they mean .. but I dont want to create a barrier before he comes.. I want to give him the benefit of the dought and see maybe he would change?!!

The 2 guys adviced me to show him some sort of power from the minute he comes because he says other than that it wouldnt work with him. I hate power .. I think it puts people in a defensive place .. I rather talk to thier mind instead.

so, now what shall I do? shall I go with what they say? or shall give him a chance??

When I die ...

The hadith that says that only three things would benefit you when you did really makes me worried .. what did I do till now to benefit me if I died, lets say tom.?

One of the things that I wanna do is a knowledge that would be useful for future generation. I want to write something, that would be influencial .. something that would make my thawab run forver!!

Inshallah .. Inshallah .. Inshallah I will!!

This is the hadith:

‏قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( إذا مات الإنسان انقطع عمله إلا من ثلاثة إلا من صدقة جارية أو علم ينتفع به أو ولد صالح يدعو له )

أبيات من قصائد إليا أبو ماضي

سأدون بضع أبيات أحبها كثيرا من شاعر يعرف طريقه إلى القلب عن طريق أبيات متفائلة مفعمة بالأمل
وطن النجوم
"قصيدة درسناها في الصف الخامس الابتدائي و ما زلت أحفظها إلى الان"
وطن النجوم أنا هنا .. حدق أتذكر من أنا؟
ألمحت في الماضي البعيد .. فتى غريراً أرعنا
جذلان يمرح في حقولك .. كالنسيم مدندنا
يتسلق الأشجارلا ضجر .. يحس ولا ونا
ويعود بالأغصان يبريها .. سيوفا أو قنا
لا يتقي شر العيون .. ولا يخاف الألسنا
الطين
"قصيدة درسناها في الصف الثاني الثانوي على ما أذكر"
نسي الطين ساعة أنه طين ... حقير فصال تيها وعربد
وكسى الخد جسمه فتباهى ... وحوى المال كيسه فتمرد
يا أخي لا تمل بوجهك عني .. ما أنا فحمة ولا انت فرقد
انت لم تصنع الحرير الذي ... تلبس ولا اللؤلؤ الذي تتقلد
أنت لا تأكل النضار إذا جعت ... ولا تشرب الجمان المنضد
أنت في البردة الموشاة مثلي .. في كسائي الرديم تشقى وتسعد
لك في عالم النهار أماني ورؤى ...والظلا فوقك ممتد
ولقلبي كما لقلبك أحلام ... حسان فإنه غير جلمد
كم تشتكي
كم تشتكي وتقول أنك معدم .. والأرض ملككوالسما والأنجم؟
ولك الحقول وزهرها وأريجها ..ونسيمها والبلل المترنم
والماء حولك فضة رقراقة ..والشمس فوقك عسجد يتضرم
والنور يبني في السفوح وفي الذرى .. دورا مزخرفة وحينا يهدم
هشت لك الدنيا فمالك واجماً؟ ... وتبسمت فعلام لا تتبسم؟
ان كنت مكتئباً لعز قد مضى ...هيهات يرجعه إليك تندم
أو كنت تشفق من حلول مصيبة ... هيهات يمن أن تحل تجهم
أو كنت جاوزت الشباب فلا تقل .. شاخ الزمان فإنه لا يهرم
هذه بضع أبيات من قصائد أعجبتني .. أحببت أن أشارككم إياها .. وقد أعاود الكرة مستقبلا ان شاء تعالى

... and it was successful

The gathering is over .. and I had to write here how happy I was about it!!

I felt as I went back 3 years .. when all of us were still students .. it was such a wounderful feeling .. we kept on remmbering stories .. laughed and enjoyed the evening .. I wish if we could do it often!!

How young we were and the silly things we did .. and how the years have shaped us .. We also said that how the things that seemed so important to us once, thinking about them now it seemed so silly!! For example, we remmbered how in the first year we went to the embassy demanding to go back coz we cant take life there .. but at the end .. we lived it and enjoyed it :)

I was amazed to see "I" change .. his thinking totally changed, he calmed down from that rebelious young person .. "S" lost so much weight that it got me thinking I really need to do it .. "S" remained the same too .. our "faylasoof Abeh". Because I meet Ay & S occasionaly.. I didnt notice a difference.

It got me thinking too, how memories remain memories, you cant bring the moments that were the happiest in your life back no matter how many photos and videos you have .. they will always remain somthing you only "remmember"!

Being the Host!!

Tommorow I am inviting the Brunian Gang to my house for dinner.. I am starting to be nervous now!!

I dont know, whenever I have guests I panic .. I want everything to be perfect .. I want everyone to be satisfied .. I want the food to look & taste good .. it all turns out as a big thing!!!

Even when guests come casually, I start panicing and thinking do I have things to serve, and all these issues.

Plus, I dont know if my house is nice enough :( I mean I love it its comfy and casual .. but for guests, I dont know if they will enjoy that!!

aghhhhh lots of issues to think about .. does everyone worries the same way when they invite people?

المرأة العربية في الروايات

ا حتار كثيرا عندما أقرأ روايات عربية .. فمع إعجابي الشديد للكثير منها و لكن ما يؤثر علي تمتعي بالقراءة هو عدم احترام القاصين العرب بالمرأة العربية .. فكلما صوروا المرأة المتحضرة .. صورها إنسانة لا تأبه بتعاليم
دينها .. إنسانة تتساهل بالكثير من شرفها بإسم التحضر

انتهيت البارحة من قراءة قصة : لم أعد أبكي لزينب حفني .. قصة جميلة عن فتاة سعودية .. ولكني أراها تبتعد كثيرا عن المجتمع السعودي .. فهي تصور بطلة القصة – الصحافية الفذة – بطريقة أبى أن أتقبلها على أي فتاة عربية .. تتساهل بالكثير باسم الحرية واسم الحب!!

هل فعلاً وصلت المرأة العربية (أو الخلجية) إلى ذلك المستوى؟؟ هل فعلاً نسيت دينها وأخلاقها وأصبحت تضاهي الغرب في كل شيء حتى شرفها؟؟؟

في داخلي تصرخ ألف لا .. وما زالت القناعة بداخلي موجودة أن المرأة العربية ما زالت طاهرة عفيفة تتاجر بك شيء إلى شرفها وسمعتها

القراءة .. عشق أبدي!!

غداً هو أخر يوم لمعرض الكتاب السنوي .. وبداخلي أشعر بحزن الفراق وأقول له: إلى أن نلتقي العام القادم ..

هناك علاقة وطيدة بيني وبين معرض الكتاب ..أشعر براحة كبيرة وأنا هناك مخحاطة بتلك الكتب .. وكأنني بأمان هناك .. لا أعرف لما و لكن بالفعل أشعر أن الكتب جنتي

هل للكلمة مذاق خاص أم أنني أتخيلها فقط؟؟ فكلما قر|أت أكثر زاد عطشي للقراءة أكثر .. هي الكلمة التي تغريني لإلى قراءة الكتاب تلو الأخر

دائما أتمى أ،ن تكون القراءة إحدى طرق تخفيف الوزن لكنت أنحف بنت في العالم

Being attached??


Its scares how you can be attached to a person so much that his/her presence means the world to you ..

when they are away, you feel lost and sad .. when they are there .. just in the same area as you are .. you feel content and happy ..

I know its wrong to be attached, but I cant help it!!
he means the world to me .. is is actually my world ! ... I could go into an ocean of tears just imagining life with0ut him ..

this is why I think love is painful with all the joy is brings.. its wounderful being in love, and when you and the loved one are having a happy life togther .. but its also painful to feel soo dependant on a person .. because the presence on that person means everything to you ..


but with all the pain and joy I am feel, I feel very blessed because I love him and I am being loved by him!
