You have probably heard the saying “laughter is a medicine to every pain”,well I believe that it is true. When you laugh,you probably have a reason right? You don’t just laugh,something makes you laugh. You might be happy,hyper,or just normal. But for a few seconds or a minute,you feel great,right? You forget about whatever pain you have,you forget about many things,you just laugh and at that moment you probably think only about the joke or whatever that made you laugh. It could be for a long time or just a few minutes,but no matter how long it is,you do forget the pain,trust me you do. Or atleast you are still enjoying yourself,maybe you have a very painful injury or sickness but laughter,even for a little while makes you feel something other than pain. Which I think is great! So laugh!
The first thing I think about when I wake up is coffee. I love the smell, but I mostly love the comfort it provides. It makes me forget what is happening in the outside world. It makes me feel okay. It reminds me that I am alive and that I have a lot to be thankful for. During the day, I edit web content. At night and on weekends, I sing and jam with a guitarist. And somewhere in between the day, I write. I write about my immigration to the States as a child. I write about my father growing older and my fear of losing him. I write about the common loss immigrants share. What I would like to achieve mostly is to become a better person. I like to help make the world a better place. I am bothered by poverty and homelessness. I am bothered by inequality. As a woman growing up in the Middle East, I naturally became a feminist. I care about women's rights, their ability to voice their thoughts, to sing freely. I love connecting to people. I love hearing their stories. If you have an idea for something I could write or something I can do to help, or if you need music for a small gathering, please message me. View all posts by Elle
