Jazz music playing in the background, Hennessy on the rocks, a good book, and my feet kicked up. That's how I relax. When i'm not relaxing, i'm probably studying business. Sports and music entertain me. Leadership, overcoming odds, realizing dreams, and motivating others is what i'm passonate about.
Never mock someone else’s test, lest Allah tests you with the same trial. Never ever say ‘never’ lest Allah test you on your word.
Before I learned the value of growth, I yearned for endless youth.

There is probably no better or more reliable measure of whether a woman has spent time in ugly duckling status at some point or all throughout her life than her inability to digest a sincere compliment.

Although it could be a matter of modesty, or could be attributed to shyness- although too many serious wounds are carelessly written off as “nothing but shyness”- more often a compliment is stuttered around about because it sets up an automatic and unpleasant dialogue in the woman’s mind.

If you say how lovely she is, or how beautiful her art is, or compliment anything else her soul took part in, inspired, or suffused, something in her mind says she is undeserving and you, the complimentor, are an idiot for thinking such a thing to begin with. Rather than understand that the beauty of her soul shines through when she is being herself, the woman changes the subject and effectively snatches nourishment away from the soul-self, which thrives on being acknowledged.
