Ten Rules For Enjoying The Rollercoaster Ride Known As “Life”!

Published

on

We all know that life is pretty tough and we all deal with things that we’re not really comfortable talking about so instead, we just try to enjoy the moment and put on a fake smile. But no, not anymore! With these ten partially easy rules of life that I’ll present to you right now might change your whole perspective! Try following these steps, may I present you, the ten rules of living your life peacefully!

  1. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present: Make peace with everybody you’re on bad terms with, even if you weren’t the one causing trouble. However, you don’t have to rebuild a relationship with everyone you have forgiven, only the people who actually deserve it. You’ll never know how strong you actually are until you had to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry, and accept an apology you have never received.
  2. What others think of you is none of your business: Whether you do good or you do bad, dress to impress or just lazily wear anything or even don’t go out or or go out too much, people always tend to find a way or an excuse to judge you on. You’ll never win against this sick society. So, preferably, I think you should just do whatever you want unless you’re not hurting anyone else. Give no damns about people’s opinion about you, what’s important is what you think of yourself.
  3. Time heals almost everything, give it time: Patience is key to almost everything. If you’re feeling devastated now then you won’t feel that a month or even a few weeks from now. You’ll start forgiving and forgetting. Everything in the world takes time, you just got to wait. If you keep on rushing things, nothing will work out. Keep on waiting, there’s nothing to rush for.
  4. Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is about: A flower doesn’t think of competing to the flower next to it, it just blooms. So, don’t compare yourself to others, that’s a battle you’ll never win. Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
  5. Stop thinking too much, it’s alright not to know the answers. They will come to you when you least expect it: Stop worrying too much, it’s like carrying an umbrella on a sunny day afraid it’ll rain. Don’t think too much, just let it be.
  6. No one is in charge of your happiness, except you: No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change. You should make yourself happy by surrounding yourself with people that actually deserve you in their lives.
  7. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be: You can’t force destiny to do what you want, because what’s written in your destiny is what will happen. It’s your fate and you have no hands to change that. You can keep trying and trying to achieve what you really want but if everything messes up each time you try, then it’s just not meant to be or it is meant to be but it’s not the right time yet.
  8. Surround yourself with people who talk about visions and ideas. Not people: Surround yourself with people who are ambitious and people who actually motivate you to work harder on yourself. People who teach you how to love yourself, how to smile a little more and laugh a little louder.
  9. Positivity is key: Always see the good in every bad situation. Always be positive and try spreading positive vibes around you. Start helping others, try joining community services so you could help others and make them smile and that’s a way of achieving true happiness in your life by making others happy.
  10. Smile, you don’t own all the problems in the world: Keep smiling because life is a beautiful and underestimated art and there’s so much to smile about. Always smile; life isn’t full of reasons to smile, but your smile itself is a reason for others to smile too. 🙂

Graffiti Artists Making Jeddah an Even More Colorful City

Published

The number of graffiti artists in Jeddah is increasing, and they are all contributing in adding more colors to their city, with their amazing skills that can be spotted all over Jeddah’s walls.

The art that was once perceived as vandalism is now helping brighten up the city. One of the artists contributing in this colorful trends is Elias Tashkandi, the 19-year-old Saudi student is turning his passion for art into coloring the city of Jeddah.

His passion started off in France where the art there inspired his own, and now, the artist has participated in several important festivals in the Kingdom, including the XJED, Common Ground and the Jeddah Food Festival.

“I saw the artworks on the trains and in the streets,” he said. “I then began replicating them, but on paper. I started experimenting in graffiti and its basics on a deeper level in 2016.”

Another talented group is Dhad, the young artists are leaving their incredible mark on different walls and projects, and their latest work was for Mirkaz JED.

Their page on Instagram speaks out their work, and is as colorful as their accomplished work.

Besides graffiti, the group also does professional digital art.

“Once the artist uncages his potential, no canvas is too big and no idea is too small. Just put that first brush stroke to paper and let your creativity guide the free flow of your expressions.” Deyaa Rambo, one of Dhad’s founders.

Hanan Kamal, a 26-year-old Saudi project manager, is yet another graffiti artist; because a feminine touch is always needed. Her art has been displayed in several events, the most recent one was the Jeddah Book Fair that was held back in January.
“Graffiti — and drawing in general — is my passion, not just a hobby,” she said.

“It evolved into freelance work that appealed to many people and I was encouraged, especially by women, as they are a minority in this field.”

Abdulkareem Jeyad, the 23 year old is a freelance graphic designer from Indonesia, art for him runs in his genes; as he was born into an artistic family. His mother was an abstract artist and his father a calligraphy artist. Which makes perfect sense for him to grow with such a talent, and passion for colors.

“I have been in the graffiti field for more than 9 years and counting.”

Art can speak out many things, it is a way to express opinions, thoughts and things that can not simply be put into words. The same goes for a country, and so it is just a delight to see this kind of self expression spreading across the city of Jeddah.
