امل حياتي

img_3527.JPG

الحياة جميلة بكل معني الكلمة فيها ما هو جميل لحد انك لا استطيع التخلي عنه ، ومنها ما هو اجمل من هذا وذاك ان تصحو كل يوم على امل جديد يقوى من عزيمتك لموجهة الحياة
لقد مرات السنوات وأنا لا افكر في ان اغير مجرى حياتي الى ان جاء يوم لا اعرف ماذا حدث فيه بحيث شعرت بزلال يهز كيان كله وكان الحياة توقفت للحظة من الزمن
وأصعب اذا تعلق الامر بالجانب العاطفي للمرأة وكيف هي ضعيفة وتتنزل من اجل المحافظة على هذا الشعور او بأحر هذا الحب المستحيل؟
ولكن في للحظة ودون سابق اندار تخلى عني من اعتقدته انه شريك حياتي في يوم ما ؟
. فقد تغييرات حياتي ب 360 درجة نحو افضل من ان ارتبط مع شخص لا يقدر معنى الحب او احاسيسي
بدأت رحلت تغيير حياتي و انا مسافرة الى لبنان وهناك حدث زلازل عميق في كيان و قرارات ان ارجع شخص اخر يتحدى كل معقبات الحياة رغم وجود اناس لا تحترم معنى الاحاسيس او لإنسانية ولكن في قررت نفسى قرارات ان اتحادهم
فبعد رجوعي من لبنان التحقت بامتحان شهادة بكالوريا وكما كانت صعبة نتيجة الارهاق السفر وحرارة الجوى المرتفعة والتى تقدر بأكثر من 47 درجة تحت الظل ولكن وبصدق كانت ممتعة على رغم صعوبتها
وكم كانت فرحة كبيرة وأنا قائزة على هذه الشهادة التى ادخلتنى و لأول مرة الى الجامعة التى لطالما حلمت بدخول اليها
لقد جاءت هذه المرحلة متأخرة قرابة عقدين من الزمن ، ولكن اعتقد انها بنفس النشوة وأمل الذي لم استطيع تحققه في الماضى
واليوم وأنا اتنفس بسعادة لم اعرف طعمها من قبل وأنا ادرس في الجامعة والتي سوف تحقق أمل حياتي وهو الدفاع عن كل مرآة تنتهك في شرفها او حتى احاسيسها فحان الوقت لكي اكون محامية في هذا المجال الذي يدفع عن المرأة كونها انسانية بكل ما تحمله المعاني السامية.
وعجيب اني لم اشعر وأنا ادرس مع منهم اصغر منى في سن بحجل و اكثر من هذا ادرس مع تلاميذي الذين درستهم في السنوات الماضية ولكن الممتع فيها انا هناك من درستهم وتغيرات اوضاع وأصبحوا هم بدورهم من يدرسونى وكم جميل ان اجد نفسى بين هؤلاء التلاميذ الصغار وأنا ارهم وهم كبار بشكل يجعلنى افتخر بهم اني في يوم ما درستهم
لقد تغيرت حياتى كلها وأنا اليوم طالبة جامعية وأيقنت ان ليس لدراسة سن معين كل ما يتطلب على الانسان هي إرادة والعزيمة الصادق نحو التغيير
اما توصيات لكل النساء العالم لا يوجد هناك عائق نحو اكمال الدراسة او التحصيل العلمية
ان تثقي في قدراتك الشخصية التى بها سوف تصلني الى ما تصوب اليه
ان اكبر عمل للوصول الى النجاح هو اصرار على الموصلة الطريق رغم المتاعب التي تتعرضين لها
لا يوجد حاجز يقف امام تحقيق اهدفك انطلقي الى امام دون نتظرى الى الماضي المؤلم
عزيزى تقتك في نفسك بكتابة هدفك وتمعن فيه كل يوم

My Life's Hope

Life is beautiful, and everything in it is so beautiful that you cannot let go. The best thing is waking up everyday on a new hope that makes you stronger to face life.

For many years I never believed to change the course of my life. Then, a day came when I didn't know what happened to me. It shook me deeply, as if time stopped.!!!

Without any warning, the one whom I thought to be my life's partner left me. But this proved to be good to me, my life changed 360 degrees toward the better. I asked myself, why would I be related to someone who will not appreciate the meaning of love? One who does not appreciate my feelings?

My life started to change after a trip I made to Lebanon, I decided to return another person that defies all obstacles of life despite the people who will oppose me and do not respect me. But I decided to accept the challenge. When I returned back from Lebanon I studied for my high school exams, it was very hot and I was very tired. But I was very happy when I was able to graduate from high school, afterwards I went to college. It was a dream for me because I was late for 2 decades to go to university. But I felt exactly the way I would feel if I went to college 20 years ago. I went to law school and I was happy because finally I will defend any woman subjected to any kind of violation. As I was studying with all the young girls, I never felt ashamed, the students explained to me difficult lessons.

My entire life has changed. Today I am a college student. I realize that education has no age, and all what one needs is willpower and sincere determination towards change. Women all around the world must have education and trust their personal capabilities that will take you everywhere you want. The greatest effort any woman might do is to insist on continuing the way to achieve success despite all hardships. There is no barrier that stops you from reaching your goal, go to the future and never look back to a painful past.

Confidence in yourself by typing your goal and reflect on it every day.

مرحبا

أتمنى أن تكوني بخير سيدة فوفو. لدي سؤال اود أن أطرحه عليكي، كم كان عمرك عندما تركك زوجك؟
كان لي تجربة مماثلة عندما تزوجت وعمري ١٨ وتركت زوجي في العشرين. لقد قمت باكمال دراستي الجامعية وحتى أنني حصلت على رسالة الماجستير في الترجمة. ثم وجدت شخصا يحترم عقلي واحاسيسي وتزوجت مرة أخرى. عشت ايام عصيبة عندما كنت مطلقة لان مجتمعاتنا تضع المرأة موضع اتهام. انا احترم شجاعتك و تصميمك.

أعتقد أنك من الجزائر؟ اذا كانت اللغة الفرنسية افضل بالنسبة لك انصحك بالكتابة بها هنا، اما لم يكن ذلك ممكنا يمكنني ان اساعدك في أي وقت.

تحياتي واحترامي.

A drop of rain can revive the earth, be the drop.

An inspiring story to share...

Dear Faiza,
Such an inspiring story to be told to several women from developing countries. Though I do not agree with the idea that all men are bad, I do agree that there are men who abuse women to maintain their power in society. Its great that you have chosen to study law, so that you can help other women.
Keep sharing your story with other women, who need a model to follow to enlighten their life.
Good luck with your future studies and activities.

Regards
Umaiyal

Thank you Faiza for sharing this uplifting story. It was easy to understand and feel alongside you as you described your determination to not be crushed by obstacles, and to go after what you wanted, even though it would be a hard path at times. I think the feelings you describe are common among women all over the world, despite our diverse stories and life circumstances.

I hope you continue to pursue your dreams and to share them here with us on PulseWire!

Thank you too to Hummingbird for opening the language door and letting this story be shared with non-Arabic speakers like myself.

You are an inspiration!

Dear Faiza (and Hummingbird),

What a beautiful and inspirational story! I am so impressed with how you reignited and lived your dream, getting your high school credentials and going to college. Congratulations!

I particularly loved this sentence: "I realize that education has no age, and all what one needs is willpower and sincere determination towards change." This sentence alone will encourage other women, no matter what their situation, to find the strength to persist. I couldn't agree more that education has no age -- you put into words something I believe for myself and for all women.

Thank you so much for being a role model, an inspiration, a voice for all who want to change themselves!

My very best,
Jone
