End of a Quarter Century

Wednesday, December 31, 2008 19
After 25 years, i choose to close this chapter of my life and look forward for another healthy quarter of a century.

The last 25 years has gone so fast.. The first 15 years, i was clueless on what is it that i am doing and the last 10 i was trying to deal with the crap that life is throwing on me..

In each year that passes by, things accumulate and i tend to carry it around with me for as much as i can.. Though sometimes i’m captivated by these things that they weigh me down and i don’t really progress on where i want to go. Each year i say this is where i will finalize this thing and get over and done with it.. it never happens.. there is always something new that gets added on it and makes it even harder to let go. But not this time.. I am determined to cut off all my attachments to the past and start plain and fresh. I choose to let go of all these things that hold me down which are purposeless and useless.

Before i close this chapter i just want to say:
"to all the people who hurt me in the past i truly forgive you, but that doesn’t mean that you have a place now in my life.. I choose to let go and take a different direction in life where you don’t exist. "

"As well as, to all the people that i hurt, i am truly sorry and i deeply apologize, it was never my intention to hurt you and i am sorry if i was too honest or too brutal. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me."

"As for the people who i hold dear to my heart and who share my life and my world all i want to say is 3asa rabi ma ye7rimni minkum."

I made right and wrong decisions, i had my ups and downs.. Let’s hope that i do learn from my mistakes and make the best of what’s yet to come..

End of a Chapter One..
Turning page one of chapter two..

Voice of Inspiration #4

Monday, December 29, 2008 5
The most consistently miserable people are those who can't be happy unless everything always goes their way.
The most consistently happy and fulfilled people are those who decide to enjoy and make the best of whatever comes their way.

It's great to expect the best for yourself, because your expectations drive your reality. Yet life will deliver many unexpected twists, turns and disappointments on the way to fulfilling those expectations.

Making yourself miserable about those disappointments and misfortunes won't achieve anything positive. Stop and think how much more effective you would be if you could simply accept those disappointments and then move on past them.

Expect the best, and make the most of the rest. That's the quickest way to get where you're going while finding plenty of joy in the precious moments along the way.

Cinderella Story Omani Style

Saturday, December 27, 2008 6
Speaking of Cinderella, i got this in my email and it is hilarious, and i just HAD to post it lool..
WALLAH A PIECE OF WORK.. whoever wrote it is a genius lool.. captured abu el accent.. loool...


Enjoy you guys lool...
P.s Try to read it in Omani-Accent…



قصة سندريلا بلعمانيه

لبست العمانيه وسارت تركض كنها منتزقه حيت القصر وشافها الأمير وحبها ورقصو رباعه وفجأة دقت الساعة الثنعشر وسارت تركض كما المجنونه ... وطاحت على وجها في الدرج

سندريلا سارت البيت بو كنو صندقه واتمنت لو انو الساعة ما سقعت على الثنعش، بس مو تسوي بحظها الناقع

الأمير حط ذيك الفردة بو مال الزنوبه فوق الوساده يمكن لونها زرقة وا خضره يعني كذاك تزرق وتبرق، المهم قام يزعق بذاك الصوت بو يرقع في الذنين حال كل البنات بو في الحاره عشان يلبسن ذيك الزنوبه ، لبسن كل البنات إلا سندريلا

سندريلا نزلت في الحاره (حارة الزط ) ومعها فردة الزنوبه ، وحطتها على الوساده بو عليها الفردة الثانية، ولما قربت عسب تقيسها صلخها الامير بكف خرخشلها ذنينها، وقالها : هين جايه ماه

قالتلوا : الله يصرفك ويلعن شكلك عساك ما تتوفق في حياتك ما شايفني باغيه البس الزنوبه

وقالها : وحدة كماش كما الزط كيف تكون كما ذيك النعناعه

قالتله : حرص علي ود اللذين تو انا اداليك وادغصلك عيونك

ولما جات تقيسها، ما طلعت مقاسها حاولت تخشلها عينها لاكن ما رامت، لأنها كانت ورمانه من كثر الشغل وكلها متروسه برار، ويا حرام ما حد صدقها ونقرعت على عيونها، وجنت الناقعه وقامت تدور حاره حاره كما ولاد الشوارع

Tuesday, December 23, 2008 3
Ok this week was i donno even how to say or what to say about this week.. so better me no say anything other than my “Diet Supervisor” is not happy with me and she is loosing hope on and giving up.. My weight didn’t drop but certainly inches did.. coz I can wear things now before i couldn’t.. My fat face became thin, 9ar 3endo shape not before like ba6ee’7.. I feel great…

Ok, so this week i would give my self an honest rating of 50% on track… I KNOW I KNOW, bas wallah i tried, I’m pmsing and it is ruing everything for me.. Bas to be honest, i really screwed up twice, once i was invited to my uncles for lunch and once coz i was invited to a party.. Ma 3aleena.. ra7 Inshallah a3wa’9ha..

So one more week is left!! The Final week.. This week determines my future, it is either i fail or succeed!! The final weigh in will be in the 1st of Jan, first thing when i wake up to get the correct reading..

Clock is ticking and stand alone is.. wallah i donno what stand alone is doing
:s

Dandoon, How is the diet going on?
Desertpalm, I don’t have my 'Mr.Bean dance' movie bas you will get the pics.. can i get my sweets now?

Twilight *little hearts, little hearts*

Saturday, December 20, 2008 11
"About three things I was absolutely positive:
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."


OMG its been so long since i’ve seen a movie that left I fell in love with so much.. I just saw this movie and all i can say is “I WANT AN EDWARD TOO”.. OMG *dddrrrroollllzzz* .. I just fell in love with his character.. After the movie finished, straight away went to the bookshop and bought the book.. I was looking for the second part but it is still not in or out of stock so i just bought the first part.. Cant wait to read it.. I bet it is way better than the movie..
*logs off to read the book*

OMG.. yeah and i had to walk with the balloon like a happy small kid with a smile on my face for an hour or so.. bas wallah the weather was nice and it did change my mood and the balloon made me remember the younger days :D

Merry, i love you so much.. Thank you for always being there for me.. MWAH :*

Diet Update #7

Monday, December 8, 2008 10
Ok the official count down has started, with only 3 more weeks to go. I need to loose on an average, each week about 2-3 kgs.. Now with calculating my BMI and all, my idol weight should be at 63.. The closer i get to the number that harder it is for me to loose.. Ana ma a3rif laish i did this.. i was happily faaat!!

Lets see, a quick recap for this week, um i had a little chips, i drank hazelnut café latte and ate ribs.. so very tiny screw ups..

I didn’t weigh my self this time coz i don’t feel that i accomplished anything, therefore I don’t want to be disappointed..

Ok.. on to week #8.. wow.. new year is finally coming..

This eid is the hardest eid EVER!! I love 3omani 7alwa and i cant have it.. The main theme about Eid is the SWEETS that we don’t normally eat.. I WANT.. I WANT.. I WANT.. *sigh* the next eid is way tooo faaaaarrrr….

Now the biggest challenge will be on Friday when my friends come over to my place to have lunch and watch a movie.. Imagine the amount of chocolates and sweets and pizza and drinks that will be there.. AAGGHHHH.. Cant wait for all this to be over..

Yala not much is left anyways.. i can do it...

Diet Update #6

Tuesday, December 2, 2008 8
Too many screw ups happened with me getting my period and craving for MANY things and actually eating them and going to Dubai which made it even harder to maintain the diet situation.. I would have liked to cancel this week from my diet BUT 2 things made me happy and i feel so good about them..

Yesterday i decided to see my weight and what is the amount of damage that i managed to achieve in this week.. I was 70.2 last week, yesterday my weight was 69.6… now 500g may not be much but the fact that i lost means i can do it even if i mess up a bit, bas the highlight of the number is that i actually managed to get my self below 70.. and that was my biggest concern.. I AM BELOW 70.. you have no idea how long it has been and i haven’t seen the 60s lool.. the second thing is today i decieded to wear an old jeans and guess what YES.. I went smoothly with no force at all to pull it up :D…. I am way beyond and extra happy !!!

I still have hope…
4 more weeks to go till end of the year, and the real count down has started!!!

Week #7, here i come….
