What do you know about me??

And what do your friends, family and co-workers know about you?? I have thought a lot about this lately, obviously my family are those who know least about me - to my surprise!

I have a female cousin my age, and we talked about this the other day - I was surprised to learn what kind of impression most members of my family have of me: Immature, lazy, impulsive and irresponsible!

It should not matter to me of course. But it does!! I was really heartbroken! How can I be irresponsible, ME, who work so hard to achieve my goals?

It seems THAT is exactly the problem! I should not chase my dreams, I should marry a norwegian farmer, settle for a 9-5 job, and raise 2,7 children, who will grow up to do exactly the same thing. I should SETTLE!

I am sorry, but for me that is not living, it is just surviving. It is not happiness, it is mediocricy.

What do you know about me? And why are you so eager to judge me? In the end it is not importand what your impression of me is. I will continue to pursue my goals - and I wish one day you'll do the same.

Yes Nadiyya, please keep that spirit alive and soaring; that is what makes great women. It is often the family who has less than desirable notions and aspirations for some of us, but, they will come to see, eventually that you were right to do what you felt was pertinent to YOUR life... bless you and keep after your dreams... hugs... I know how you feel, believe me...

It is not easy, knowing that they are waiting to see you fall flat on your face...

But they will never see you flat on your face hun' ;)
Maybe they will never see you at all...the real you..

Sorry for them, and as you told me, the real family is not of blood, it's of soul!

It's better to have lived a rich life with successes and failures, than just to have excisted:)

The caterpillar and the butterfly:)you know!

Be Your own beautiful self always, Nadiyya -- the soul that is as lovely as the body in which it dwells.

Intelligence and warmth and love shines in Your beautiful face. Thank You for sharing it with us.
