Leaving Brazil: with Prescriptions for Kindness

In summary, we spent a maximum of two hours out of ten in the lounge. I drank, ate, and used the locker. Until the very end, the only people who warmly welcomed my baby, who showed affection, and played with her were some of the staff members.

It was heartwarming and merely confirmed, once again, how meaningless our bank account, social status, belongings, and anything material is when our emotional world is shallow and scarcity-based.

My baby was comfortable during the last hour. The Universe was generous and rewarded my patience and acceptance of the circumstances I couldn’t control. Three families were sweet to Mimi. I was observing their warmth with a peaceful smile.

The icing of the cake, when he finished his shift and was about to leave, the guy who suggested the airport smoking area in the beginning and offered Mimi some cheese he prepared himself came in our direction to say goodbye.

“I felt I had to apologize in person for the inconvenience and tell you how much I appreciated your bright smile and shining presence!”

His free act of kindness moved me to tears before adding, “Oh goodness, I can say the same thing about you. I was observing your servant leadership manifestations and smiling. Your vibration is the infectious kind the world desperately needs! Thank you for being a blessing!”

“Awww, thank you! I am about to cry!”

“Please do! Your vulnerability is a gift to our world and takes a great deal of character strength!”

“No way! That’s what I always tell my husband!”

“There is a reason why we clicked instantly!”

“We will meet again; I know we will!”

“I feel it too in my heart! This is merely an ‘au revoir’!”


My Heart Breaks a Little Whenever I Recall How Harsh My Trip to Brazil Was on My Baby Girl Mimi

I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer. Writing has been my very favorite means to educate my audience, captivate their attention, talk to their emotions, and make them relate and take action. I have been honored by working as a columnist for BIZCATALYST 360°, an Award-Winning life, culture, and biz new media digest, serving as the global hub for enhanced performance and well-being, during 2020. Also, I am a contributing author in Mayhem to Miracles: True Stories of Courage, Triumph, and Peace. I am so in love with writing that I have a peaceful smile drawn on my face whenever I start visualizing the books I will be writing for whoever will be tempted to discover an inclusive philosophy breaking with all the stigmas! I was born in Tunisia, a small country in North Africa. I did pretty much everything earlier than the average: walking, talking, singing, dancing. Promoted throughout my entire education, I was also the leader of every end-of-year party. At some point, after working several years for multinational companies as an engineer, team leader, project coordinator, and product owner while always being a top performer, I figured out I was feeling miserable despite the 'perfect external image'. That marked the starting point of an existential crisis followed by an episode that triggered my re-birth and the beginning of the most rewarding adventure of my whole existence: re-writing my subconscious program and reconnecting with my true self. I was saved at the last moment through an out-of-body experience making me see all the lies, realize this gigantic Universe was not revolving around me. Most importantly, I was able to visualize I was here to leave a legacy like all of you, no matter how big or small! The butterfly took time to emerge though. Today, I identify myself as a Universal Citizen. Like-minded and light-hearted people are what I call home. I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer, and was granted the edutainer qualifier: a combination between education and entertainment! I educate on the importance of healing unsuspected traumas, seeing our limiting beliefs and biases with honest lenses, finding one's purpose and a principled mission that goes beyond the self, and unleashing the hidden potential so that to leave our legacy for the generations unborn. I have been using a panoply of means that could vary from explicit ones such as mentorship, speaking, and writing, a skill that emerged naturally during my self-actualization process to implicit mediums like storytelling, how I daily show up in the world and model servant leadership! Writing is my very favorite and most preferred tool deployed for my mission. The topics I explore are in the nexus of stoic philosophy, psychology, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, and pretty much any topic involving human behavior. Common denominator? The quality of the subconscious program. You may have a look at some of my works published on my website; Set Yourself Free.
