The Other Side Of The Screen Is My World

The other side of the screen is the world I want to live in, the other side of the computer screen is the world that I find myself in.

Since I was young, I had many ideas, and tried a lot of them, I have created a podcast website (msn space) before podcasts were there, and created a website (www.sawwarna.com) which I literately thought about its layout while I was sleeping. But life on internet and by internet has changed dramatically, and every three to four months, a new thing appears.

To start a fan base, and to deliver a content to this fan base, I have to focus on few social media platforms, but cover all the platforms to be able to attract larger number of followers, subscribers and readers.

we have very powerful tools to share to the world, but each tool has followers with different demographics, and a calendar of posts, quotes, updates and creation should not only determine the social media platform and the timing, also it should determine the type of content it should have, to whom it is directed, and what kind of marketing it requires .

all of these thoughts of mine are still not connected together, but I promise that I’m going to connect them together soon, specially with the different activities and posts types I do.

for the time being … I’m semi active on instagram, twitter, linkedin,¬†wordpress, and youtube… but I will try to cover snapchat, and facebook again.

the subjects that I’m welling to cover:

I’m hoping for the best, because I know and I’m very sure that my life will go for the best if I started doing what I really like and what I really want to be doing… an entrepreneur through the internet, I have other contact with a business model that I’m creating that will be a new thing insha’allah.

Why Did I Quit Smoking?

I started smoking before 9 years, and before that, I used to try but I wasn’t a continuance smoker until 2005.

I used to like the habit, and I was a proud smoker. I used to show off with my smoking tricks and how I smoke in a lot of forms of smokes as Cigarettes mainly, HOKA or SHISHA, and something local here in UAE called Midwakh, which is a kind of pipe.

I didn’t try to stop smoking at all, but I didn’t smoke infront of my parents, even when they knew that I’m a smoker, i didn’t because it is a tradition here that we don’t smoke or talk about smoking infront of our parents, specially the father.

I didn’t have any kind of sickness related to smoking, and I was an active person who did a lot of activities, and I used to sing a little but didn’t feel that smoking affected my life style that I had, no! it was a part of my life style!
I used to design my day around smoking, so whenever I wake up, I had to prepare coffee for the morning cigarettes, I had to prepare a juice or purchase one whenever I ride my car, because I want to smoke, I didn’t mind standing up in the hot desert weather we have to enjoy a smoke. It was a life style and it was not a problem for me.

I have got married and my wife didn’t mind my smoking, but not in the house, so i used to smoke in the balcony, and I didn’t complain about it. then suddenly, i started to think about my lifestyle, I wanted to take control over my life on all dimensions that are controllable, so I sat a set of goals, first goal was stopping smoking!

I didn’t stop smoking because of a sickness, i didn’t stop it because of financial crises or anything, I stopped smoking because I wanted to test myself, to test if I can control the thing that I’m attached to, so I stopped smoking at 27/03/2013 and I’m proud of it.

I really feel proud about myself, and I really feel that enough self esteem to say that I can control my life. and I feel more active towards change to the better.

Jumping around

It all started when everything appeared to be dark, I didn’t know what to do, So I decided that I will create my own destiny.

After all the falls I had, all the ups and downs I’ve got, the time has arrived to establish an achievement in the real world. An Achievement that I should work so hard on it, so one day I can lay back and say that this is what my whole life I worked for. But where should I start ?

I looked around and I’ve got scared, I have no backup for any fail, I can’t enter a large risk, yet there is nothing without risk. I have to study more, I have to be aware, but is that the road that can me success, how many times I should fail and finally, If I failed, Am I going to come back again ?

It is scary but it is beautiful scary, such as a one year gap backpacking around the world. It is beautiful scary such as getting married, having a baby, or moving into another country. It is Beautiful scary as the first time I jumped from a boat to do a 18 meters Dive to a Wrack in RAK-UAE.

Until now I couldn’t start any of the ideas I have, not because I can’t, but because I’m studying them more and more. Now I’m reading, before I was watching, and next I should listen, then finally I will act, and I WILL do that.

It is hard not to start after all the thinking, but it is harder to start before you do all the thinking and the studying. I dunno what to do, but i know that I will do eventually, and every try count.
