If-you can...

Love intensely. Write daily.Listen closely. Hug truly. Ask with curiosity of a child. Live warmly. Look scrutinizing-ly . Learn extravagantly. Mean it. Remember. Dream boundlessly.

Go on every date as if it were your first. Celebrate every birthday as if it were your 18th or 21st. Live festively! Celebrate! Appreciate the gift that is your life. You are an personification of a higher power. You are the creation of the divine

So the darling Maria-Thérèse tagged me to write 8 thing about myself and tag another 8 people; this is my first tag so I am very excited about it!!

Eight things about me: 
  1. I am sadly very absent-minded; I tend to lose things alot: I have lost one of the two anklets my boyfriend bought me for our anniversary, my necklace that had my boyfriend's pendant, another pendant we bought one for each of us and a third pendant, and lastly my boyfriend's favorite cell phone which had survived six years with him.
  2. I have 2 sisters, 1 brother and 16 cousins from my father's side, and two amazing THIRD cousins from my mom's.
  3. I have an obsession with shoes ( I am a size 36 EUR), and another with books.
  4. I have completely....mutated from a baby to an adult/teenager (also this is the longest my hair has been).
  5. I love coffee, salmon sashimi and sunsets by the sea. Oh, and Moleskines and pens!
  6. I have only started recently going to the gym( 2 months)! I love it!
  7. I take unlimited pride in my heritage. Everything about Egypt and being Egyptian (Except for a few major/minor things here and there).
  8. I have an activist inside of me. An aspiring writer. An aspiring social entrepreneur as well.
 Pictures (In order of the numbering above)
Me, my boyfriend and my bestfriend-- the necklace I lost.

Some family.

So I tag:
Gala ( I hope she replies to that)
Ok, three people remain, so if you randomly want to do this, go ahead, just leave a comment!

A beautiful post indeed, I agree with Afiori that everyone should read this every day. I think I'm gonna print it out and hang it above my bed or beside the mirror in my bathroom, so I can see it every day!

And what a beautiful family!!!
