Notes to myself ...
"It is tough out there for women and we all need to learn to take responsibility for our own careers. You can't get a job or promotion if you don't apply for it, so put yourself forward. Women need to build their self-confidence and realise they can do whatever they want. They must not give up when there is a stumbling block.
I have applied for many things that I haven't got, and put myself forward for promotions that went to someone else. At times it would have been easy to give up, but I've learned the importance of being resilient. It is fiercely competitive out there and that is not going to change.
In academia you are only as good as your last paper so it is easy to start on a downwards trajectory – aiming high is vital, otherwise the gap between the achievements (and pay!) of men and women will widen...."
الهی! عاجز و سرگردانم، نه آنچه دانم دارم و نه آنچه دارم دانم.
الهی! چون توانستم ندانستم و چون دانستم نتوانستم، آه ازین علم نا آموخته، گاه در غرقم ازو، گاه سوخته. الهی!
همچون بید می لرزم که مبادا به هیچ نیرزم.
الهی! حجاب ها از راه بردار و ما را به ما مگذار.
الهی! نزدیکت نشان میدهند و دورتر از آنی و دورت می پندارند و نزدیکتر از جانی.......!!!!!

اتفاقی چند تا از نوشته های یکی دو سال پیشم رو میخوندم و با خودم فکر میکردم اون دختری که اینها رو نوشته کجا رفته؟ باید پیداش کنم ...دلم براش تنگ شده !!
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
