Why I don't want to live anywhere else in the world

Bahrain is ... What is your perception? Well, I know what I see every day. I see and hear helicopters roving around my neighbourhood. There is black smoke from black tyres burning in random areas. There are protests that reflect the unhappiness of many. Then there are conversations like, "So what do you think about the stability of this country?" and "Do you think it will ever improve?"

This is the reality in Bahrain unless you are living in an unrealistic bubble.

But there is something more powerful than what we perceive with our eyes and ears. Something so powerful that the law of attraction can back it up. It is our belief.

I believe Bahrain is prospering for everyone and I know it will improve sooner than later.

I believe that I live in a country that has given me security, beauty, and joy. I know that I do not want to live anywhere else in the world. I know that this country will and is getting better in all respects. And with this thinking, what do I get?

Some will say I am living in a fool's paradise. But I know that everyday I am appreciating what I have and believe it will get better because if I don't, I am the biggest loser.

No one benefits when you cannot see goodness in the world. It doesn't matter if you live in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere, problems exist in all areas and it will continue as long as humanity does.

So, this is my choice. I know that a united people who believe in goodness, will get goodness.

We have only two options at the end of the day, that which is wanted and that which is not. Why not focus on that which brings happiness, even if you do not have it now, it is coming, it is there, I can see it in my mind. And eventually it will come to all of Bahrain.

A person who can perceive the world as he/she wants it to be, is more powerful than a million who cannot.

Be that beacon of light who can see beyond what is, and it will be.
