I Love helping my friends look on the bright side of every situation. Unless of course the dark side is their bright side. That's okay too! it's important to be yourself and live your life to it's highest limit.
When ever I love an anime that I watched from my external hard desk. I move the episodes to CDs make a CD sticker for them. Then I hand maid the envelop for them. With the combined pictures that I also make using MS-word. xP
Inspiration is the spark to a new idea, a new beginning, a change to the better us, and it is the push to take your passion from (a dream on my mind) stage to the activation stage, and if its already an activated passion, a good inspiration will take it to the next level.
When I was thinking about what stories I came across through my life, That did inspire me, in a way or another, I remembered many, but .. few of them was social media related. I choose to talk about 3 ... not only because of their inspiration, but those 3 stories also had a strong re-action from me personally ,, 2 made me go like (OMG OMG! ) and one made me go ( awww!!!! I want that too!).
How did my story Heroes Crushed It ? ..
In the 1st story, it's clearly that the Blog I'm talking about, started small from a certain fear, and a passion to get outta this fear, with time it got build up and became popular that people started to go to it. and .... read the story to know what happened.
In the 2st story, a random man, very normal one just like you and me, had a passion for music, and a passion of loving his family, he channeled his passion into YouTube. .. Read Story 2 to know if moving his passion to social media payed off.
In the 3rd story, It is an incident that happened to one of my best friends and she shared it with me, it happened to be a perfect example of Gary Vaynerchuk saying (Nothing is impossible with social media).
Let's Start our journey:
Story #1(warm up) : Blogging away Debt ! to check the blog click Here
I came across this blog by accident while I was googling financial topics for a work task I had to do(several years back I don't recall when exactly), It's about woman named Tricia who had a large amount of dept along with her husband, and they were only in there 20's trying to start their own business to help them pay their depts, but things wasn't going alright at the time I 1st checked the blog, the posts was about ups and downs, what tools or books they come across that would help them get ideas about how to get rid of this dept! I was like OMG! in their 20's and into all this mess!! how the hell they're gonna manage paying all this dept while they do not have a steady income, whats hit me is, el7imdillah our country really help us set a good stand when having a job! and what I told myself is ,, ( I will never be in dept! ) That is the wake up call I got from this blog, I should always live my life to the maximum with out killing my wallet and I will not get credit cards rather than the one I use for online purchases and while I'm abroad.
What was on my mind at that time is, hey did the blog for support, and to log their financial life so they can keep track of it. I didn't want to be in none of their shoes! I managed to be dept free to this very moment, el7imdellah. But I loved how did they seek and actually got all the emotional support that they need through the blog. it's like having the blog readers as a supportive family and friends, not to mention reader with knowledge that are willing to help you through your problems.
I never checked the blog after that day, until today!
surprise surprise! the happy couple are dept free since I donno when and the blog is a huge inspiration that another girl named Beks is the new owner of the blog with her own dept to pay and the story starts again, while Tricia started a new blog talking about her life after dept. The readers number has gone high. How powerful is social media is, I don't know the inside story and the details of how did they payed the dept, but I am 100% sure that they would not done it the way they did without social media.
Story #2 (The Work out):
Reality Change's Vlogg YouTube channel -- to check the channel click Here
I received a Broadcast message via what's app iPhone application that held 3 videos and a comment saying ( Dad sings with daughter! cute!) .. I checked the videos and they were Super Cute!( to check one of the videos click Here) But the Question that came across my mind was.. where is the Mother? So I logged into my YouTube account and checked where the video came from, just To Find out that The owner of this channel is a father of 2 cute girls who is also a musician, separated from the girls mother, but they are "Friends", and he get to spend some times with his girls, what he wanted to do is show the world how he is attached to his girls, and this vlogg is their own space, no one is allowed in but him and his 2 girls. he created his own small closed yet open to the whole world that holds all the love, Vlogging the Good times as he describes it.
I am very inspired by this guy, he is still studying, and he is a very responsible father, very attached to his girls and he just used social media to show this off ( His passions are Music and the love of his girls). Just check the video hits he have! I know I am not the only one inspired by him ,,, I want to be as active, as lovable, as positive as Parent as he is!
Story #3(Cool down -True!): Nothing is impossible with social media - Gary Vaynerchuk
In this story I have no proof of the truth of it but my words due to privacy issues since it's a true story that happened in kuwait, It's like a fairy tale that we only see at the movies, but it actually happened a couple of months back.
I have a friend who her father told her a secret of him having a wife before her mother, back when he was studying at the states and that he had a boy with her, She didn't want to come and live in Kuwait so the father divorced her and left the boy to live with his mother, he actually told her that and she shared it with me back when we was just mid school students. and naturally I thought that he was just kidding her and telling her a bed time story.
I actually don't know how my friend had an idea of wanting to look for her brother, she went again and asked her father about more details about where his 1st wife was living and whats the name of his son, I told her that what are the chances that he kept his name! or that he still live in the same state! u r wasting ur time girl and it already been more than 30 years since your father came back to Kuwait and got married to ur mom.
Her point was ... No Harm will be done! I'll look for him in Social networking sites! ... and long story short .. She DID FOUND HIM ON FACEBOOK !! she showed me the pictures and he even look like a sibling to her! I cannot say any more details, but he is visiting the family he never get to know! *very excited* !! FILM adreee ,, I will not blame any one of you if you didn't believe me ,,,
just believe that Nothing is impossible with social networking ,,
and how am I inspired by this story is ,,, Never lose hope! hold to the very least spark of hope ,, you never know what destiny holds for you. you really never know what could happen.

Since the summer started. Last may to be specific. I faced a problem that I haven't seen ever be4 in my life .... Acne !!
El7imdellah 3ala kil 7al bs mashallah 3ala el jaw! ;(
Long story short, I had an alcoholic lotion and an antibiotic lotion as a medication for the acne. I've also needed a perfect face wash that would clean, reduce blemish and eliminate the appearance of acne.
Rejuvi and SoSkin face wash was highly recommended for me. And after a couple of weeks of me using them ...
The winner is ....... SoSikn face wash.
Both face washes can be found at any Boots branch.
prices : Rejuvi (10 KD) - SoSkin (12 KD)
Blog's world hot topic, the Crush it concept. What this book is all about! this is the 1st question that popped into my mind and still I'm puzzled about the knowledge it will give to all the members, what kinda post I'll be reading from my blog roll ? but ... wait .. I am member too! what kind of posts I'll be writing ?
In this post I would like to take a baby steps in Crush it, and post about my knowledge about two things, Blogs and "a Passion".
I started reading Blogs by the time I had a twitter account, back at 2009. and the blogs I got to read where divided into two kinds, Story telling Blogs (personal or imaginary diary) or (News and updates) blogs. What I liked about those blogs was the way they pass information and life experiences to readers, and how the readers can instantly interact with the writer and give their feedback to him\her.
By now, I have more than 90 blogs in my Google reader. and the list is just keeps growing, with blogs that is specialized in what ever crossed my mind.
Before getting in the blog world as reader, I used to Google any topic that interests me to read about it and know more details or answer my questions, Now, I Google a Blog that talks about this topic, follow it and interact with the owner, which increased the amount of information I'm receiving.
I still don't know how did this happen, how did I opened my blog. I'm shy and closed person in real life. I have few close friends that I hardly open up to. maybe to one of them or two. But the blog is here and I guess it was a moment when I decided to open up. I can see that from my First Post.
It's Still random, But I really hope to see it grow up and be a mature blog. But it's my baby :P yes it is.
This conversation happened between me and my friend this evening:
(edited by me ,, you just need to know el zebda :P )
My Friend: Did you checked your email?
Me : Yes I did.well?
My Freind: What should we write about? how we're gonna do this?
Me: write about a passion? Go ahead and write about how great is Dark Vader is! XP
My friend : Haha! I also like Car racing, sky diving, Diving with sharks ..
Me: hmmm write about your dream, how you're gonna be an expert Diver and about having a Shark as a pet.
My Friend: Hahahahaha This is crazy!
Me: This is being Creative with your Dreams!
My Friend: That is insanity!
Passion ,,, Passion ,, How Far Can We Go with Our Passions?
Me : ... wait a minute! ... What is MY Passion?
(our heads pumps together) and we're repeating ,,, Passion!!
I still have few pages left to read from the 1st book I've picked for @Q8BLend challenge.
Since I'm already not saying what is happening at the end so i've decided to write about it now.
I will just point out what's this novel is talking about looking at the big picture and not the particular story.
Let's say that you have your own business. It's the source of putting food in the table. ( in the novel she is a singer)
How would you deal with life obstacles? Such as :
-your doing great in your job. And your publicity hits the maximum, how would u keep it this way ?
- would you include your best friend and your life partner in this job?
- What if you had a fight with your best friend or left your partner ? Knowing that your job success highly depend on them. Would you cut them out or ignore your feeling and keep them in for the sake of ur work?
- What if you got in the ( I don't wanna work/ need a break/ I don't feel like it) mood, in the very wrong time where your job needs your maximum energy. What would you do?
- How will you deal with mistakes you do? Stupid mistakes that is.
- How would you take and digest the outer world feedback and judges about you in person or about your work? Negative reviews and positive one.
It's a very light and easy on the mind novel to read.
This is the 1st day of Ramadan. And to those who decided to join Q8Blend's read a book challenge . This is the day u start reading ;).
About me, I was already reading a novel called ( Reality Check) still I have 100 more pages to finish it up. So this is the 1st book. And the second one I picked to read is a squeal of the Hollywood hit movie ( A confession of a shopaholic). It's called ( mini Shopaholic, like mother like daughter)
Why this book ? It's around 400 pages. :P can be read in one month beside khatm el Quran inshallah, which is priority 1. And the story is family related! Girly, Fun! And I really wanna know how she's gonna handle passing the shopaholic thing to her girl!
I'm gonna try to post a small review about each book when I'm done.
