Everything I do I do for you

Have you ever had some one who has past away or is no longer in your life, yet there isn’t a single day in your life when you don’t think about them?

Most people who are cognitively heightened do.

Agha joon, is what I called my grandfather. In Persian it translates to exactly ‘dearest man’. Which is exactly what he was to me. He was my everything. And once he passed away everything was taken away from me temporarily. Until I realized that instead of mourning his passing, I need to be living his presence. I thought of every thing he stood for, his manhood, his trust, his wellness, his generosity, his love, his emotional attachment, his humanity- everything! And I decided that every day that he is not here in this world, I will fill in his spot and be more like him. From that day on forward I had a small piece of him with me at all times. And I too becameĀ  a better person.

I still cry when I think of him but at the bottom of my heart I know that I am no longer mourning his death, rather reliving his life through me.


I would be a Farmer

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “New Skin.”

If I could be any one else I would be a Farmer, in a warm country.

There are so many reasons I chose this answer, but to sum it up in one sentence. Because I want to earn what I put in my body and soul.

Nowadays we don’t see where the food that’s on our plate comes from. We don’t see who has grown it or touched it . We don’t see how it has been made or processed. All of this forces us not to appreciate what we are eating. Hence the global destruction of human bodies. Worldwide, specifically in North America people are at their most unhealthiest weight. More and more people are becoming Diabetic, a disease that is preventive! Unlike most diseases which are not preventive (Some). But diabetes (type II) is equally correlated to your obesity. Out of sight, out of mind. It is true, but this is very bad for our people. We are self destructing ourselves. And most people don’t even know it. The best we can do in today’s society is only eat food that looks like food! Nothing processed and nothing that did not look like food 100 years ago! seriously people! wake up!!!!
