I LAUGHED IN FACE OF CANCER đźŽ—


Jasmine Elnadeem

What it feels like when you told that you have a cancer?!

When I was told I had a cancer, I didn’t yell, I actually laughed.

I don’t believe in fate or miracles. I believe that only my will can shape the future.

I always laughed when I panic!! Hahaha!!

The days that follow are full of shock, denial, fear, anger, and even sorrow.

I realised also that the ones who think they know me, they really don’t know anything at all.

My therapist lately told me that I’m a strong woman for being able to fight for myself over and over again.

But I have to say that I took long time working on my emotional state before I was able to actually share anything about my cancer to people.

Sharing my cancer story still not an easy task, I don’t know where to start, and when I do, people react to this kind of news in different ways.

Some reacted negatively for not knowing from the start. Others were reminded with their own fears about cancer and started to ask me questions as if I was an expert.

I believe that we are free to share what we want and I still refuse to share certain information which I consider very private.

In the end Knowing about other people’s personal experience of cancer can be a source of support and inspiration when you or someone you love is going through cancer treatment.

BE KIND TO THOSE WHO FOUGHT TO LIVE!!

There is beauty in a woman whose confidence comes from experience. She is not afraid to take risks knowing if she should fall she can pick herself back up and move forward. I have started to do this and I believe that you can do too!!

HAPPINESS AT OFFICE

Happiness at office can raise profits and productivity as well.

OH yes if you choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.

It is rare to find a manager who consult their staff or encourage them to express their opinion rather than giving them orders all the time.

I find joy in failure even if I’m kinda of a perfectionist, because those darkest moments usually inspire my best work.

I think it is okay to learn on the job, because no one can be perfect from the start till the end and there is no shame of doing mistakes or asking for help.

I need to surround myself with positive (but not yes) people.

I tell myself to stick to my guns and don’t let anyone shouted me down because I worked hard to be where  am today!

In the end if it impossible to make it, take a break! Yes it is important to recharge batteries and clear your head for better thoughts.

Wishing Y’all a very productive day! XOXO

One of the questions I’m being asked about more and more lately is who takes my photos?

Most of my pretty photos are taken by my boyfriend 🙂

Today I’m publishing some Black and White images.

They say: “When you photograph people in colors, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”

My boyfriend is really into Black and White photography and I asked him many times before why he is so obsessed with Black and White.

He says: “Colors can be terribly distracting in some images and can take your focus away from the subject. I like taking the color out of my images to let the subjects speak for themselves”.

Black and White images can be strong, high contrast and powerful – or on the other side soft and gentle.

Of course the black and white vs colors debate is a very personal one.
