Many portions of my life, I'd say, have been greatly influenced by music. Some of my beliefs have also been shaped by the movies I've seen and absolutely loved. Music and movies have impacted my life in ways people or other everyday things wouldn't. But in the rise of new music and movies, surprising genres and a change of taste in many of its "creators" must I say, which one do I think will continue to have a deeper impact on me? Music or movies?
Hello guys! How's your week going? Mine is going smooth except for today. Ah, I woke up today with a terrible stomach pain. I'm guessing it was because of inhaling excess gas when I was asleep. Haha! To top it off, the electricity in our area suddenly went off. In a country like the UAE, it is so difficult to lose power especially when summer is around the corner. I'm thankful though that it was back after roughly 20 minutes. Thank God that almost all our neighbors are locals which simply means that when they get electricity as soon as possible, we'll get it too! Electricity problem fixed, stomach pain, nah.
Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing good. It's been such a busy week for me as we have shifted into another place. Another blog post for that! I was so tired and emotionally stressed that I really could not find the time to post about the best thing that's happened this week, which is the Hillsong Concert that took place in Dubai last April 28 and 29. When Hillsong coming to Dubai was announced at church last Christmas, I couldn't help but to be so excited about it. Actually, excitement would be an understatement. I was more of ecstatic and joyful at the same time knowing that one of the few bands I wanna see live was to perform in Dubai.
I woke up with a terrible mood today. I felt like I wanted to go back to sleep again just so I could escape all the complications in life. Read my post yesterday to know why and have a clue about what I'm actually talking about. Yesterday was a day like not other. It's like all the enemy's tactics to get you out of everyone's sight is suddenly working and you realize that your world has shattered just because of how sharp the tongue can be.
I grew up having trust issues. To begin with, I hated putting myself out in the public to be mentally scrutinized by people I don't even know. I was afraid of talking to people and letting them know what I or my family is going through because I know that in one way or another, they wouldn't really understand us. It's tough to say but destructive stories about you can rapidly spread as if it were ice cream being given for free from Baskin Robbins. Once you become a little too comfortable, trust me, someone out of the hundreds will eventually dislike you, what you do and won't be that comfortable with you and so they decide to gossip...about you. You're on shaky ground, my friend.
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough...
