Possession 20

Good morning from snowy Montreal! Welcome to another week of possessions.

Do you own a piece of jewelry that means a lot to you, that you always wear? (not talking about wedding bands here), just something that is close to your heart, and would be devastated if you lost?

I have such a piece, a bracelet, with my four kids names in arabic..


I had it made a few years back, and had the blue stones inserted (for the bad eye!). I rarely take it off, i feel like i have them next to me all the time…

What is your most cherished piece of jewelry?

Life …

What is it about life that makes it so difficult sometimes, and so simple at other times..


The recipe seems simple enough right? But for many people it’s not. We get bumps in the road, obstacles to overcome, sadness to override…Where is the simplicity of just enjoying life?

Today i woke up with a heavy heart, missing my kids to the point of not being able to breathe…After talking to them i realized that they are doing what teenagers do best. Enjoying their life. Sure they miss me, but it’s not stopping them from finding pleasure and joy in their days, it’s not stopping them from looking forward to their future. But it’s stopping me. Not being with them is killing me to the point where there is no motivation whatsoever to advance in life and do something about it.

Sensing their happiness made me realize that i’m not doing them any favor by being this way, nor myself for that matter!

It’s high time for a change and a wave of positiveness to come my way. That’s the decision i’m taking today (and as my dear cousin would say, stand up , be grateful and smile, oh, and eat! Everything else will fall into place…)

So maybe the recipe is as simple as it seems….

Do you have a recipe for happiness? Please share, and have a wonderful weekend, xo…

Possession 12

One of my most priced possession is something my son gifted me a couple of¬†christmases ago…I treasure it first because it’s from him and second because of what it represents. I tried teaching my kids that gifts should always be meaningful, it’s not the price that matters but the thought behind it (and since he is young and doesn’t have a lot of resources, he really squeezed his mind for this!)¬†


He took my favorite picture of me holding him when he was just a few months old, blew it up and had it made on a board! I cried so much when i opened my gift, it really was the best thing i have ever received…This picture is almost 23 years old, and i was only 19!!

What is your most meaningful gift to date?

Possession 6

My phone…It’s the first thing i touch when i wake up! My phone is my lifeline to my kids, without it i would feel totally lost. Living on a different continent and in a different time zones can be tricky sometimes, they send me messages like at 4h in the morning, then” oops! we forgot you would be sleeping!”…As i stated before, technology has played a major role in my life, and having a phone 24/7 where you can use facetime,viber,skype,whatsapp, emails….Well it’s more than amazing!

And now that i discovered instagram, i’m even more addicted! You can follow me @rymj…
