What makes you different from others?

I was in the street waiting for a taxi after a long day in work. Many friends are calling to go party but i didn't felt like going for many reasons, the 3rd taxi stopped and asked me: Where are you going?
I answered thinking that he will reject because i'm living in the middle of the traffic in Doha.

I'm going there to have my dinner, come buddy! He said, the Indian music in the background staring from my window to people, cars and buildings.

He start to ask me the typical questions from any taxi driver, where are you from, where do you work? I used to answer these question while i'm thinking about something else and i was thinking about a question kicked me badly. What makes you different from others??

I reached home, took a shower and played some Jordanian songs, checking my social media channels and watching TV all at the same time. Leave behind that its really strange i'm not in party as its weekend but everything is going well.

It's pretty tough to ask yourself these questions because you are rapping your mind with big thoughts, and you are trying too hard to find answers for all these questions.

I've sent this question to many friends as a broadcast on WhatsApp. Honestly, i didn't find a real answer, one of my favorite badass girl said: i'm different because i'm once in a lifetime and i don't compare my self to others. "Bill gates quote" But Mr. Gates, you were WRONG because we need to compare ourselves everyday, every minuet, every second! You must compare yourself to yourself yesterday and the day before, because in order to grow you need to know where you was yesterday and if you become a better person! Maybe they have different point of views which i always respect, but they didn't convince me not even 10%. Okay, 20% as i just received now an answer from a friend in Dubai and she said something make sense a bit.

From my standpoint, what make everyone of us different is our values. In fact, it's your value in life. And by saying value i don't mean believes, religion, better life nor peace.

It's what you bring to your life, what you add to your life and others, this is your value. In a different way, we don't get salaries every month because we worked a month!! No, we get paid because of the value we add to every month we work.   

We don't live once, we live everyday, think good of the value you add to everyday in your life because this is YOU and your value.

Men in Kitchen!

I still remember my mother when she gave me a small paper were she wrote on it some basic recipes like how to make rice and some steak. I was in the airport heading to Doha, i thought its a prayer to read or some sort of motivation words!

After couple of months in Doha she called me and she asked if i start cooking, i had to lie and say: Yes, I've cooked some dishes, but i had no clue that to be in kitchen is so tough job.

I used to live on some tuna, burger, ORDERING FOOD and when i'm really excited i was doing some tuna salad, but after my experience in food poisoning for the second time, i had to stop this shit right away!

I end up in hospitals taking the same medicine and feeling the same rough pain, so i had to decide what sort of food i'm going to live on. 

It's not really an easy process for a man who only know how to cook some toast and cheese. The first time i tried to do something the fire alarm went on! You can picture me.

After two years of living alone i learned how to make rice, steak and some omelet which i think it's good for a single man. 

10 things you don't know about men in kitchen:

1- Men don't know shit about kitchen.
2- We don't check the expiry dates, we just eat.
3- We buy food we don't know how to cook, curious creatures.
4- All our food is awesome and yummy!
5- If the fire alarm went on it might be the neighbor not us.
6- If we succeed in cooking anything, we don't know how to store it.
7- We see the same things in the fridge for months but we don't know when is the right time to eat it. 
8- They feel they've cooked something when they make popcorn.
9- we always throw more than we consume.
10- Men don't know shit about kitchen.
