I haven’t posted on my blog for the whole last month. I visited my home country, Iran, with my Iranian husband who was visiting the motherland for the first time after 20 years since his departure with his family. I don’t know what I thought about our plans that I left some free time for… Continue reading Where is home?
One of the keys to success that we hear a lot is “Hard Work”. There is this myth that if you work hard and put an effort in anything you will succeed. It might be true but will you be happy as well? I can claim that I worked hard all my life. I used… Continue reading What is your definition of success?
From the first day I started my journey in career change and self development, I heard the words “surrounding” and “community”. I completed my third course of pottery this week and for the first time I felt the sense of community when I participated on Saturday free workshops and I met new people in the studio. During this time I got to… Continue reading Are you aware of the magic of a community?
So many people asked me this question for the last couple of years. “Why do you want to quit your job? You get paid well and you are living a good life?” I couldn’t exactly describe my situation at work for my friends and family, but I always told myself and others that I am at the… Continue reading Have you found the descriptions and words you were searching for ages?
As an Iranian living in Canada I have the privilege to set and adjust my goals twice a year. Once during the new year vacations and once during the first day of spring when we celebrate out traditional “Nowruz” (New Day). Close to three months ago I wrote my goals and the most important one was to find… Continue reading How did I adjust my goals on Nowruz?
I have to say something before writing this post. As much as this post might help other readers with some ideas to be happier, and in control of their lives, it is for myself. It is a self reminder of the habits that I have developed and which have helped me a lot to move forward in the… Continue reading What do I need to be reminded of every single day?
It is very interesting to observe how the dots are being connected in my brain. I have been exposed to so many new vocabularies in the last couple of months, and so many different professions which I have never heard of before, but I am realizing now that they all scream the same thing: : “Humanity”… Continue reading Are we living our emotions on a daily basis?
There are many of us who are not used to reserve a space and a zone to think, to reflect, and to create. I am one of them. One the biggest challenges in the last couple of months was basically to do nothing but to concentrate on my surrounding and to listen to my inner voice.… Continue reading Do we deserve a pause?
For the longest time I thought that being an engineer or working in an engineering firm is not considered a creative job. I thought that engineers, lawyers, bankers, doctors and so many other professionals are not involved with the element called “Creativity” and since I always consider myself as someone who is so fond of arts, decoration, design and dance,… Continue reading What is the definition of “Creativity” for you?
I have been always looking at those people truly living their legends as aliens. Those who are excited about their projects, those who are creative and enthusiastic about what they do and their careers. If I talk about any project in my life except work I am the same alien, alive and full of energy… Continue reading Passion! Are you there?
