Life Defining Moments

Changing schools 1997
I was scared and miserable, turned out to be the best move I ever made

My uncle passing away 2000

Cancer at 32. Changed everything about everyone, the great depression, my aunts wore black for 3 years after his death, it definitely changed my outlook on life.

Graduating High school 2003

Breaking away from the security and familiarity of everything and everyone I had grown up with, i felt limitless!

My parents divorce 2006

Its not so much the divorce, but dealing with the aftermath.

There are a lot of significant moments in my life. moving away from home, dealing with certain situations, meeting certain people, but these four moments had more impact on me and who i am today than any others.

What are the moments that defined your life?

My Approach to life:

Most play the cards they are dealt. I stack the deck!!

That's a good question.

I think the most important moment when my dad enforced me to study in England using his special power when I wanted to study in Kuwait. Now I'm glad he did.

I have to say that you always inspire me, and especially after this post :)

I love how with all what goes on in your life, you still managed to DO WELL in your education and also carry good traits; great personality and charisma :)

allah y7maich min kel shar inshallah

as for me...the BIGGEST life defining moment in my life is

Moving to Canada in 1994
(turned out to be the best decision my family has ever made!!)

CHANGING SCHOOLS 1997; meeting eshda3wa who is the love of my life.

Yet to discover. I do not need a moment to define my life as i can pretty much think of lots of critical moments that somehow had an impact on my life but failed miserably to define it.

I like the picture though :)

January 29, 2008 at 5:30 AM  

Its a two way street.. but memories define us as we define ourselves coming out of them.. they make us stronger.. then make us who we are..
proud of you girlie for the strength that you brought out of these events good and bad...

January 29, 2008 at 5:50 AM  

girl seem you went through few to get where you are today! :)

moments?? heh! i don't remember moments really! i remember life throwing me around and me getting up and start walking again... but no moments! :P

January 29, 2008 at 8:11 AM  

sorry to hear about ur loss and the divorce *hugs*

My defining moments:

First exposure to human beings (seriously): January 2002

First published story: sometime in 2003 >> more exposure to human beings and fame

deviantART: changed life forever

Graduation: June 2006 >> welcome to the new world

First salary: September 2006 >> independence

January 29, 2008 at 9:03 AM  

I am sorry about your parents divorce. *hugs*

January 29, 2008 at 9:50 AM

January 29, 2008 at 9:54 AM  

I could say that my life is 4 phases..
Primary School life 1990-1997
High School Life 1997-2001
University Life 2001-2004
Canada Life 2005-2006

and then this phase.

January 29, 2008 at 10:59 PM  

hmm let's see:

2000: going to KU
2001: going abroad
2003: changing schools
2005: moving back
2007: quitting my job

I think severe changes in my surroundings have been the defining moments in my life. I'm glad that, for better or for worse, my defining moments have all been choices I've made myself.

January 29, 2008 at 11:02 PM

u always are so provocative and inspiring... when i think of my life defining moments.. other than 1990 (very very defining moment in my life because of the invasion, and the loss of my father), the other year that stands out making all other life defining moments minimal is 2000... notice i didnt even put my marriage year, not that its not a big big thing.. just 2000 was Titanic in its turbulance..

January 31, 2008 at 12:18 PM  

I can finally post a comment :D I was reading you sis but couldn’t comment because of java problems :S

I'm sorry about your parents and about your uncles death may he rest in peace.

I had many life defining moments

1998 I had a culture shock after living 8 years in the UK and that we are not going to live there again.

1999 my uncle dying from cancer.

2003 graduating high school.

2007 graduating and feeling that I don’t have anything to do. After that having a job and not loving it. My first salary.

I bet there are more and that I can't remember them at this moment.

January 31, 2008 at 2:20 PM  

great post! emwaffiga inshallah

January 31, 2008 at 3:27 PM  


I loved how you made it..

and have nice vacation!!

February 3, 2008 at 1:15 PM  

ooooh too many, these things have to happen to keep viewers hooked...characters have to evolve, i probably changed most after my dad's death, Allah yr7ima, your uncle and kil el muslimeen
