What happened in Egypt, words will fail to describe it..During 18 consecutive days I lived a dream, a surreal dream..
I realized many things about myself and about human beings in general. I opened my eyes and have come to understand many of the values and principles we were taught, we once read about, and never experienced them the way we did in the past 18 days..
1- When you believe in something with passion, you will achieve it
2- While pursuing your goals, challenges rise and getting to where you want might seem complicated, tough, and even impossible…but eventually keeping faith in your dreams lead you there no matter what happens during the journey
3- In the journey of dreams’ pursuit, some might object you, suspect in your abilities, voices of rejection might get loud…again keep faith in God, and then in yourself and u will achieve those dreams
4- When confusion prevails, listen to the voice of your heart
5- We are all alike; we are all similar, having the same desires of freedom and happiness
6- Acceptance. Accepting our differences just like our similarities
7- Judgment. Who are we to judge each other? If you don’t like to be judged then don’t judge your brother
8- More Listening, less Talking
9- Less Talking (especially the type of talks where accusations and condemnations are being thrown to each other), More ACTION: translate your beliefs and values into actions. And these actions don’t have to be HUGE, just simple and little actions…
10- Patriotism is a word I never experienced its real meaning. Now I know, and realize what I have been missing
11- Belonging to a greater cause than yourself adds a deep meaning to your life
12-In the deepest part of our souls, we all believe we must add value, help each other and make a difference
13- Patience. When you are trying to reach something and nothing is happening yet, it doesn’t necessarily mean that nothing is happening. Actually something unseen is happening, and all you need is just a little patience
14- Forgiveness. Forgive those who considered you as a sinner, a failure, or a stubborn risk taker. They will admire your courage one day and will respect u eventually
15- Never disrespect or underestimate the power of change. We can all change if we want to, if we want it enough
16- Change can look frightening but it is also liberating and empowering
17- Self Deception is worse than the deception of others
18- It all starts small and ends big. And what we call an end is another small beginning of something’s big end
19- Do what you believe in, heart and soul, and you will see the results one day
And I believe words r still unable to express the real value of all these lessons…Thank you Egypt for waking me up, Thank you for loving me, Thank you for believing..
