Great Minds are Young

Archive for November 2011

Young 14-year-old Egyptian Nada Al Dash is back with some of her inspirational short poems. Nada talks about the value of time and says: “this is a warning to never waste time, because every second is a treasure waiting to be opened. You open it by making something of your life. Don’t say I should have done this, I shouldn’t have done that… Just thinking that way will never change a thing; you will become depressed and always mad. Time is not something you put in a safe box and lock, it is rather something you should wisely invest in order to be happy.”


Time now


Time goes by, it is so simple but

It is what you do with it that is hard

You never know whether you were wasting your time

Or simply living,

But sometimes you need to stop and think;

What if today or tomorrow was your last day?

Would you live your life happily ever after?

Would you live it as the happiest time of your life?

That is the question we all need to answer


Forgiveness and forgetfulness

Love and time

Correctness and life

My motto, live and don’t look back


We all meet and know a considerably huge number of people; some we like, some we don’t, and some are tasteless to the point that we can’t even decide whether we like them or not. Some remain good friends, some become ‘less favorable” and some just pass by without leaving a single trail.

Among those we like are very few “inspiring angels” and “smile ambassadors” (or at least that’s what I like to call them) you can’t help but smile when they cross your mind, you hear their names, or see their faces. This smile could be a smile of comfort, appreciation, admiration, positive energy, reliability, mere joy, or any other serene and comforting quality. Those people are blessed, as the people they have them around are blessed too.

It’s great to have some of those people around, and it’s even greater to be one of those people who make others smile… It’s true that for some it just comes naturally, but I do believe that a good heart filled with pure, unconditional love and charity can turn anyone and everyone to one of those beautiful people.

What do you think?
