هيلين كيلر ... وقصة حياتي العجيبة


"هيلين كيلر واحدة من ابرز الشخصيات التي ولدت في القرن التاسع عشر. فالتاريخ سيظل يذكرها باعتبارها الفتاة التي تمكنت من قهر الإعاقة المزدوجة التي أصيبت بها بفقد بصرها وسمعها (عند سن التسعة عشر شهرا)، ومن المشاركة الفعالة في الحياة..."



دي كانت جزء من مقدمة مترجم كتاب "هيلين كيلر ... قصة حياتي العجيبة". أول مرة قريت فيها الكتاب دا كان وأنا تقريبا في أولي أو تانية إعدادي، بس شديني قوي طريقة هيلين في سرد إحداث حياتها ومحاولاتها المستمرة في استكشاف العالم اللي حولها بمساعدة معلمتها الآنسة "آن سوليفان" . وازاي رغم إعاقتها استطاعت أن تتم تعليمها الجامعي زيها زي أي فتاة طبيعية!!!
 
الكتاب دا أول كتاب واقعي أقراه، بعد ما كنت هاوية قراءة الروايات والقصص المترجمة. بس رغم انه واقعي، إلا أن الأحداث اللي هيلين اتكلمت عنها مثيرة جدا، ممكن لو إنسان معندهوش إيمان أو ثقة في نفسه يقول إنها قصة خيالية وخرافية!!!
 
قراءة سير وتراجم الشخصيات المشهورة واللي ليها تأثير قوي ومؤثر في مجتمعها شئ ممتع جدا. الواحد بيحس كأن الناس دي أصدقاء ليه وانه يعرفهم معرفة شخصية، رغم إن في الغالب بيكون من الصعب مقابلتهم وجها لوجه. و هيلين واحدة من الشخصيات اللي أثرت فيا قوي، لدرجة إن أحيانا بتدور في عقلي أفكار عن إني أقابلها!!! مش عرفه ازاي بصراحة ... هي ماتت من زمان قوي!!!!
 
لكن اللي بتمناه بشده إني اقدر اقرأه الكتاب تاني باللغة اللي اتكتب بها، مش الترجمة، لان دي هتكون اللغة اللي فعلا بتوصف مشاعر وخواطر وافكار هيلين بصورة مباشرة بدون وسيط.
 
في حاجات هيلين قالتها عجبتني قوي قوي قوي ... إن شاء الله هبقي اقرأها ليكوا ... أو بمعنى أدق ... هابقي اكتبها ليكوا :D

Jasmine Flowers

I adore jasmines flowers so much. I love its simple beauty, and its amazing fragrance. Perhaps nobody would gift another person a bouquet of jasmines (red roses or other flowers species would be preferred), and this makes me feel that jasmines flowers are so valuable, cause it's not created to let others enjoy its physical beauty. But, instead, every body could enjoy its benefits when it been squeezed and get its extrication.

Here's some information about jasmines:


Jasmine flowers are generally white, although some species have yellow flowers. They often have five or six lobes. And they are often strongly and sweetly scented. Jasmine is a very popular flower around the world, especially in tropics because of its unique fragrance.

The Jasmine flower releases its fragrance at night after the sun has set and especially when the moon is waxing towards fullness. Jasmine flower buds are more fragrant than the flowers.


Facts About Jasmine:
  • A Jasmine leaf is arranged in opposite in most species, leaf shape is simple.
  • Two types of Jasmine are used for oil production - Jasminum grandiflorum and Jasminum officinale.
  • The nectar of the fragrant flowers of Carolina Jasmine, Gelsemium sempervirens, is poisonous, although its dried roots are used in medicinal preparations as a sedative.
     
  • Jasmine flower oil, extracted from the two species Jasminum Officinale and Grandiflorum, is used in high-grade perfumes and cosmetics, such as creams, oils, soaps, and shampoos.
     
  • Common Jasmine, or poet's Jasmine - Jasmine officinal, is native to Iran, which produces fragrant white flowers that are the source of attar of Jasmine used in perfumery.
     
  • Arabian Jasmine - Jasmine sambac, are used to make jasmine tea.
     
  • Jasmine prefer full sun to partial shade and a warm site.

Difficult Decision


Try to imagine this situation …

A lonely person … in a desert sand … had been walking for a long time though it … he has a destination … but he seems like being lost … cause simply every thing around him look the same … no signs for any kind of life … nothing but sand hells … and a burning sun …

He has run out of all supplies … so, the idea of being dead starts growing in his mind … he resists it … but it's a true … he has no hope to survive …

Suddenly, he sees a small bottle of water on the ground sand … yeah … it's pure water … and it's hot too … because of the sun heat … it can't be cold … or it would be just a phantom …

While he is running towards it … dreams of a new life go though his head … and the bad ones just fade away … why not?! … he will survive … those drops of water are enough to bring back life to him again …

Now … what do you think he is going to do once he got the water bottle?!! … mmm … stupid question?!! … no ... guess what?? … this person starts dropping down the bottle content on the sands … cause it would make the weather much more moisten (edeha maya, tedyik tarawa)!!!!!!

Every human being spends a lot of time searching for something in this world (the desert) … a something that would represent life for him (water bottle) … what ever it is … truth, love, peace, secure, dream, friendship, etc … and sometimes, when he got it in his hands … he miss use it … or just ridiculously lose it …

When ever you got your "water", never waste it in no use … even if it was hot … hold it in our arms … save it close to our heart … time after time … it will be much colder … and you will enjoy it a lot :)

And in case you fell you are just about to thought your "water" away … try to talk to someone close to you … or someone have passed with a similar situation … he would be much wiser ... and would give you a good advice (in case he is a very good person) … also give yourself a break … take your time to think quietly … before releasing your final decision.

And always never ever forget to ask Allah for help and support … cause He – Subhanuh Wa Taallaa – is the most Wiser and the most Merciful … He said in His book:
"نحن خلقنا الإنسان ونعلم ما توسوس به نفسه ونحن اقرب اليه من حبل الوريد"

And in such situation my favorite Douaa is:
ربنا أرنا الحق حقا ورزقنا إتباعه ... وارنا الباطل باطلا ... ورزقنا اجتنابه
ربنا لا تزغ قلوبنا بعد إذ هديتنا ... وهب لنا من لدنك رحمه انك أنت الوهاب
ربنا اغفر لنا ذنوبنا ... وإسرافنا في امرنا ... وتب علينا ... انك أنت التواب
اللهم يا مقلب القلوب والأبصار ... ثبتنا على الإيمان بك ... وعلى نصرة دينك
اللهم لك الحمد على ما هديتنا ... وما كنا لنهتدي لولا أن هدانا الله
اللهم أعنا على حمل الأمانة التي خلقنا من اجلها يا كريم
آمين ... آمين ... آمين

Finally, I wanna to say, thank you Allah for your blessings … thank you Allah for guiding me towards my "Life" … thank you Allah for sending me two angelic friends to rescue me.

And for my "Life" … I wont let you go :) … iSA ya3ny :D

Be Thankful


Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
