Take it or leave it!

As a child, we merely had two choices imposed on us by our loving parents: ( Take it or Leave it)! 

Growing up, one would come across many incidents that would require a wider variety of choices...  but in reality, it all boils down to these two choices! You either 'take' the situation you're in and dwell upon it ( be it a bad day at work, a tough boss, low grades, sickness, to name a few) or you can choose to (leave it) behind. Ignore it ever happened and look for alternatives. 

My recommendation though is, to 'Take it' AND 'Leave it'

Take in the learnings from each situation, look for life's teachings in the deepest problems you face ( there has to be one somewhere) then stand up & 'Leave it' like there's no tomorrow! 

Now to a bit less serious talk. Adapting to a new food diet exposed me to a new choice ( Take it, Tweet it & Leave it) 😄 for the choices Of food are endless & far more than what my tiny heart/stomach can handle. 

Here's a few of my favorite things in Houston:
Five guys, chipotle & Jack-in-the-box
Fresh juices at Jamba Juice 

Crunchy crisps at Starbucks

Chai Pie at Pondchiri 

Steak at Eddie V's

Tacos at Chipotle

Salmon on a bed of lobster mashed potatoes! At Eddie V's 

... To name a few 😄

Like the bird

"Be like the bird, who

Halting in his flight

On limb too slight

Feels it give way beneath him,

Yet  sings 

Knowing he hath wings." By Victor Hugo

His poem is engraved beneath this beautiful sculpture at MD Anderson - Texas- USA. Giving hope to those fighting, the survivors & their supporting families and friends.

Make a difference. Yes, YOU can!

New Dawn Ladies Society was established back in 2006 by a group of young ladies dreaming of making a difference in their society. We worked hard on introducing a few unique fund raising activities by involving the youth from both genders.
Our society has been honored this year to manage the annual donation campaign of Bahrain City Center! 

The mall's donation campaign is called (Make A Difference). Large, secure donation boxes are placed in the mall throughout the holy month of Ramadan. People can donate clothes, packed food items, glasses & books.
Then,  we are expected to pass them on to the underprivileged families in need- But wait, we need to do it differently- we need to do it the-new-dawn-way💪 

These are a few of the bags collected by the mall. Work started last night by filtering them by gender, age & lifestyle. Our data base of families have been contacted & the 1st batch of clean/wearable clothes have been donated to them earlier this morning. 

We will be meeting this Friday & Sunday evening to work on the remaining pile 

Follow @NewDawnBH on instagram or @NewDawnSociety on Twitter to share with us your feedback, let us know of families we can reach out to and if you wish to volunteer with us  to help us out. 

We are passionate about making a difference ... Are YOU? 

Your donations make a difference, your retweets & reposts will help Spread the message across💕  

Make A Difference - NOW!
