Intimacy and what it really means (here):
An article that explains the true meaning of 'intimacy'. A different point of view that relates the intimacy of a couple with the relationship that each individual has with God. How, being aware of its existence makes us being closer to experience that level of intimacy with your partner that makes us one, an intimacy that is not limited only to something physical, but goes much more beyond.
INTIMACY AS CONSCIOUSNESS
Intimacy is an almost ethereal concept like God. While we can’t say specifically what it is, we know it’s real when we feel it. That’s because like God, intimacy resides within us and isn’t something we get from another person, but a state of consciousness we choose to inhabit.
“INTIMACY ISN’T THE ABILITY TO EXPRESS EMOTION. MANY RELATIONSHIPS HAVE LOTS OF EMOTION FLYING AROUND, AND WE CALL IT DRAMA. REAL INTIMACY IS GROUNDED IN ONENESS, A MERGING OF TWO ENTITIES INTO ONE.”
An article that explains the change of a person whose values are only materials and whose sole purpose is academic and work achievements that give social recognition, to a person who's not leaving that aside but is aware of a personal level much more important, one that truly speaks of your personality, a person who cultivates those values so little recognized by society but we all admit that are essential and necessary values that keep you from your own individuality and make you perceive the rest of people around you. To try to make this change, the author of the article writes a list of values that should come.
"But if you live for external achievement, years pass and the deepest parts of you go unexplored and unstructured. You lack a moral vocabulary. It is easy to slip into a self-satisfied moral mediocrity. You grade yourself on a forgiving curve. You figure as long as you are not obviously hurting anybody and people seem to like you, you must be O.K. But you live with an unconscious boredom, separated from the deepest meaning of life and the highest moral joys. Gradually, a humiliating gap opens between your actual self and your desired self, between you and those incandescent souls you sometimes meet."

Think about this: Love, at the end of the day, it's a rational choice you take.
You choose to keep loving your family because you know they will always be by your side.
You choose to love your friends because of the value they add to your life.
You choose to love him
in spite of because of his many flaws, you choose him over anyone.
You choose to love the things you do because of the sparkle of ligh that shines on your eyes when you talk about them.
You choose to love the sky under which you live because of all the beauty it contains.
You go to bed every night with the will that you will keep loving all those things that make you happy, that make you smile, that make your life better.
You get up every day with the will that there is a new day, a new oportunity to love even more all that adds meaning to your life.
And yes, you get sad. Yes, you have bad days. Yes, there are days in which you go to bed crying. But here is the secret: YOU CHOOSE. And I hope your choice is on the side of love.
Have a great week, Laila
I do like the side of architecture in which I am able to showcase my imagination, where I am able to shape my dreams in the form of architecture. That side in which you can project things that may not be able to be built, where you get to know the deepest needs of the people in order to design something that they will end up loving. I indeed love that side. The most artistic side of architecture, where ideas take shape.
But that’s not the only side of architecture; there is a more technical architecture that is of course needed so that all those amazing ideas can be built in the real life. An art that architects must master, something that has its own beauty.
Last week I had the chance to visit a warehouse construction; I was able to touch all the materials, to feel them. I had the chance to see in firsthand what I had been studying for some months. It’s actually a great experience to realize that what you have learnt hasn’t been in vain.
Architecture is the thoughtful making of space.Louis Kahn
Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.

She, the woman who loved me even before she saw me. She, who took care of me and protected me. The woman who suffered and enjoyed sharing her body with me during nine months. The woman who would give anything so that I would be happy, so that I could have everything that I pursue in this life. She, the woman whose happiness grows when mine does, whose unconditional love is maintained even after our several arguments.
She, that woman, is my mother. Who I love and thank for everything she has given me in this life. She, whom I admire and respect for all those sacrifices she made so I could have a better life. She who has made me the woman I am today. She, my mother. Because, as the Prophet Muhammad said:
Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “A man came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, who among the people is most deserving of my good companionship?’ He said, ‘Your mother.’ The man asked, ‘Then who?’ He said, ‘Your mother.’ He asked, then who?’ He said, ‘Your mother.’ He asked, ‘Then who?’ He said, ‘Your father.’”

After so many days of rain and wind the sun is finally shining in my city. Therefore it was the best time to wear a light white coat, with a sweater because the temperatures are still low. It's Spring and I can't wait for the weather to be warmer in order to wear more light clothes and colours.
