Three of my colleagues are on vacation. I also have an extra project that I’m working on… I have some family overseas issues which are occupying my mind in searching for solutions. Relatively, there are some emotional pressure due to the surrounding political events… Have I mentioned the extra financial obligations as the start of school year is just around the corner?
First, I would like to thank Mohamad Al Karbi for inviting me to write a guest post on his blog. It’s my first guest post and I feel truly honored.
To be honest, I wasn’t too keen on accepting the invite because I had been asked to write on banking. All who know me, will not be surprised at the hesitation I felt. Blogging for me, has been an outlet from the mundane world of banking and I have enjoyed every moment of it since I started last September. It is what I do with my heart and Banking is what I do, with my brain. But as all roads must intersect at some point in time, so I guess, this is point of intersection between what I love doing and what I have to do . Having worked for eighteen years in credit cards, I can say I do understand the workings of a credit card and the ordinary issues a layman faces when dealing with cards. So Mohamad was definitely right in approaching me to do this. In today’s post, I aim to explain benefits that you should be looking for, when picking a card for you and mistakes people generally make when using the plastic.
Do you have some free time? Do you have good writing skills? Do you need some extra cash? Who doesn’t? Using the freelancing platform Upwork, you could put your writing muscle to good use and earn decent dollars in your spare time. With limited experience as a freelance writer prior to setting up my profile on Upwork, I was pleasantly surprised when I landed my first client within a day, then proceeded to make $500 in my first month! I’m now earning up to $1,000 per month by writing in my spare time. I’m going to share my secrets on how to make up to 1K a month on Upwork in your spare time.
Often times, you can find me staring outside a window at work or at home, daydreaming about wanting to be outside.
Not everybody is like me, and I’m sure a lot of people enjoy the comforts of their own home and the modern conveniences we have. I know I enjoy phone apps, computers, television (when I can find time to watch it), indoor plumbing, and all kinds of things that we have. But… there’s still something inside my very skin that craves to be outside like nothing else. This feeling awakens from its winter hibernation around springtime – now! (I actually still have desires to be outside during the winter time, me acting on that desire is less likely than in warmer months.)
What I’ve found out is, nature is so great for de-stressing. As you know it, we carry a lot of stress inside us, and not enough people take the time to do something about it. There are many things that could relieve stress, sure, but nature is one of the key things that could beat it.
When you are in tune with nature, you are connecting to your core being – how the Creature intended you to be.
Life sets us up for a fail. From the get-go we’re taught that the hero always wins, the princess will get her prince and fortune favours the bold.
What we’re not taught is the reality; life, sometimes, stinks.
We are part of this world and we have to use technology. Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Facebook are big players in this technology and probably in our life too. They already know a lot about us. So, it’s fair for one of us to think of leaving one of them. But, it’s difficult to totally leave! I’m using to say that one should not put all of their eggs in one basket!
نحن جزء من هذا العالم الذي لا يستطيع الاستغناء عن التكنولوجيا، و من كبار لاعبي هذه التكنولوجيا و أصحاب التأثير فيها و ربما في حياتنا مايكروسوفت و آبل و جوجل و فيسبوك، إنهم يعرفون الكثير عنا لذلك ليس غريباً أن يرغب البعض منا بمغادرتها جميعاً أو مغادرة بعضها، لا أعتقد أن كلمة المغادرة الكلية قد تنجح هنا، و لكن كما أقول دائماً لا يضع أحدنا جميع البيض في سلة واحدة.
