When Times Get Hard


Image

We’ve all had bad times in our life, times when we faced obstacles, we thought were too hard to overcome. This week has probably been one of the worst weeks in my life. I guess it was because a lost someone so close to me, who I never thought would go that easy. However, this week has also taught me a lot of things. Like, to never give up on loved ones, never take advantage of the time you have with loved ones, cherish every moment with your loved ones, and live like there is no tomorrow (well to an extent) because you are never promised tomorrow. I guess this is quite a sad entry, that I am writing today, however a lot of people need to understand that life, like mountains, has jagged parts, that we’re all inevitably going to pass by, you just have to keep going…because the view is great.

Letter from the MP


One in three girls around the world is denied an education by the daily realities of poverty, conflict and discrimination. As you may know, I strongly believe in Human Rights, especially regarding girls all over the world, as there are more girls suffering because some silly people believe that we are inferior and have no voices to speak up, and that we are oppressed, and should stay home instead of going to school, but I am strongly AGAINST this, and believe every girl is entitled to an education as it is a part of her human rights, and that we should all be doing our best to ensure we are supporting this movement because it’s the right thing to do… How would you feel if your daughter was not given the right to learn, simply because she was a girl? Girls are given off to marry strangers which increase the risk of abuse, and isolation…in some places in the world, a girl is too old if she gets married by the age of 15!

So there is this wonderful organisation called Plan- Because I am a Girl, that are helping ensure that girls in Low economically developed countries are given the right to an education, because they see potential in them. They believe that girl’s hold the power to break the cycle of poverty, with education, skills and support, girl’s would be able to make the right choices and live a normal, happy life.

Did you know that an education girl is:

  • less likely to marry and to have children whilst she is still a child.
  • more likely to be literate, healthy and survive into adulthood, as are her children.
  • more likely to reinvest her income back into her family, community and country.

Now for the exciting news…back in December, I sent a letter supporting plan to a member of parliament, asking her if she would be interested in helping me lead this organisation and make a change in many girl’s lives, and she replied three weeks ago, saying YES! She said and I quote that she will be writing to the Secretary of State for International Development on my behalf and asking him to announce how many girls the Department for International Development plan will be supporting to complete nine years of basic education by the end of 2014. She also said this is a big priority and she will get back to me as soon as possible!!!

I was flying when I found out she replied to me…see this shows you that no matter who you are, you could be making a change, if only you do simple things, like saving money for the charity, and donating, raising awareness, or just informing other people on these things. 😀 😀 😀

Scoliosis Update….


So, I haven’t written for about a week now, and it’s because I’ve been super busy with exam preparation and my back problems. On the 22nd of march, I went with my mum to see the consultant for my scoliosis problem, and he said my curve has increased, from being 35 degrees to 52 degrees. Sooooooo… the way to correct this would be surgery, and by having this surgery, my spine would be much better (hopefully) but the problem is… j’ai peur!!!! I’m actually dreading it, but I’ve had so much support, from family and friends and joined many scoliosis groups on Facebook, which gave me extra support and reassurance.

My day on the 22nd of march, started off like any ordinary Thursday, only that day, I had no school, because of the appointment:D So I got up at about 8:00 in the morning, and had to get dressed for 8:30 which was the time, the cab was picking us up, to take us to the hospital. To be honest, I wasn’t that scared, I was slightly nervous, but having my mum by my side, made things better. So we got to the hospital, and it was 9:00, we were 15 minutes earlier for the appointment, so we went to Costa and had coffee (well I had orange juice). So after about 10 minutes, I was told that I needed an x-ray. So a nurse escorted me and my mum to the x-ray screening place, and the nurse, kindly told me to remove my top, and get dressed into the gown. I did this and gave my mum my top. After about 2 minutes, a nurse kindly took me to the X-ray screening room, and told me to step on this weird step thingy, that I can’t describe haha, but I was facing a glass wall. I was told that, they were going to give me a X-ray, from the front of my back, and from the side. The X-ray took about 20 minutes, and I remember the step thingy, being cold against my skin. So after the X-ray was done, the nurse, checked if they got the correct screening, and then escorted me back to the room, where I was told to put my top back on, and then after this went to meet my mum back in the hallway. My mum looked slightly worried, but the nurse reassured her that everything was okay.

We were then led up to the consultant’s room, and waited. This is where I started feeling quite nervous, and felt like I had knots in my stomach….When I was told I needed the operation, I felt so sorry for myself, and almost pitied it, as I read more about it, the thought of it affecting my life negatively, became a part of my everyday thinking, and was embedded in brain. It was a thought, that never left my memory, and to be honest, almost became a part of my everyday thinking, as it was becoming permanently imprinted in my mind, and no matter what I did to remove this thought, of the scoliosis getting worse, it came back…haunting me.

Now…after about 4 days, when I was told I needed the operation, things pretty much got back to normal. I remember I was on tumblr, when I discovered a blog called “Laughing at my nightmare” .Now this blog changed me from the inside and out, because it seriously made me realize that life is way too short to dwell on negativity. The blog was about a 19-year-old boy living with Muscular Dystophy. He said that he was eventually going to die from the condition, but he wouldn’t let it slow him down. His blog makes will make you laugh and cry, because you just realize, some people always will have worse conditions than you, but actually they are the ones that realize life is too short to worry about the negative aspects of life. Instead of worrying about why YOU’RE the one, going through this, you should calm down, relax and seriously thank God and be thankful that you are more healthy than sick. When you’re having a bad day, always remember, that somewhere out there in the world, someone is suffering 10 times worse conditions than you. Fill your heart with gratitude, and stop the negativity.

So finally, I just wanted to share with you, a bit about the day I went to see the consultant, but also share this amazing story of the boy who’s laughing at his nightmare.  Check his blog out, because it really makes me smile. Now, I’m not going to lie, I am still worried about the operation, but it’s soooo little compared to how it was before reassuring myself that it’s not that bad.

#FreePalestine


 

I think by now, everyone knows that Palestine and Israel have been in War ever since 1948 when the land of Palestine was taken away from them forcefully, and unjustly. This as anyone would agree is morally wrong and unjust. But at the end of the day, the whole issue is a really big matter, that I, myself cannot resolve, but pray to God that one day, the two countries will be at peace together, for “Love is stronger than segregation and discrimination”

I strongly advise everyone to support the Palestine Children’s Relief Funds http://www.pcrf.net/ as they are doing an amazing job in helping the children of Palestine, regain their life and future, and are giving more people the chance to live, the chance to have an education and the chance to find freedom every single day. The PCRF has worked hard to provide many sick and injured Arab children in the Middle East with specialized medical care that is not available locally. The PCRF not only accomplishes this by sending teams of surgeons to treat children locally, but by also arranging cost-free treatment for them abroad.

Not many people realize this, but the fear and pain that the children and people of Palestine are enduring is terrible and is the same issue that is going on in Uganda. Be the voice for these children. I know some people may think I am crazy, for talking about resolving two issues at once, but I believe if you believe, you’ll achieve. I’m a Believer.

SO Please, help promote equality and peace, by supporting Palestine. Remember “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one”

~Mother Teresa

All We Need Is Love


This picture is definitely one of my favorite! The message is that all you need in this world is love…and I agree 100% If we stopped all the greed and wants, the whole world will be split between everyone, and we’ll all get our share. Nothing ever runs out…however with the way people are using greed today, we’ll never be a peaceful world. My message is to love one and other, and always help one and other, because all religions teach us to love our neighbors and do our best to help…Be a good person, and change your actions today!
