I have much to be thankful for and that the same time, much to grieve over. I am thankful for my new job though I grieve over how much it has taken a toll on me mentally, physically and emotionally.
I thank you for my financial stability and on the same note, I find my success means nothing much other than having to secure it more and worrying over other people's agendas to do with it. That was a revelation after seeing a friend over the weekend and a story they told me regarding a more well-off friend picking up the tab because her and her husband "did not make as much money".
I thank you for my family and grieve over the loss of a family member... I cannot tell you enough how my heart aches at this news. Oscar is much like a child to me and I wish so much my love could pick him up and piece him back together. He has been nothing but an amazing pet and has touched everyone in my family.
He helped me get through some of the toughest times in my life while traveling with me. He became a member of my family back home when I moved back to the West Coast. His timing has been impeccable and I thank you for bringing him in my life. I am so lucky to have had that opportunity.
I am devastated.
Aside from all the overwhelming stress I have endured over the past 2 months, I do not know what you are trying to teach me or tell me. Maybe I need to go home and visit? Maybe I need a job to allow me to slow down a little bit more? Maybe I need to just pray for more direction and your guidance to help me through?
Whatever it is, please know I am listening, waiting - I am being patient. Please heal Oscar. Tell him how much I love him and how much I want all of my love to so badly make him better.
Please let my family grieve with me in a healthy way. He really has been nothing but a shining start in our lives. He has brought SO MUCH joy to so many people he has met.
I love him and miss him terribly... the pain is almost unbearable.
Please pray with me, help me heal and help me find closure if his time is to come.
My God I pray.

He left without a trace. Idk where he is. I know he didn't have much friends but he made such an impact in my life. I feel so numb. Wherever he is, please watch over him. My plan was to go back and begin again where I left off but I guess i can't do that anymore. I don't know where he moved to. Now I really have no choice but to move on. It just hurts. Wherever he is, watch over him and guide him.

Dear God,I sent this letter to many people but no one did not heed to it.Please look at me.
• Hello,My name is Nadia Tariqi. I am 34 years old and I have been married for 12 years with a son, 7 years of age. I live in a traditional and religious city called Ardebil in the northwest of Iran. I love plants and I am very interested in interior design and house wares reading as a hobby. The expectations in Ardebil differ greatly from found in Western liberal societies. I have been bred for a considerable time in this way of life and endeavoured to get the satisfaction and approval of those around me, relatives and the further extended family including friends. The only thing I failed to consider was would provide enrichment in life! However, I had to do this since I wanted to live comfortably. The encumbering patriarchal culture of Ardebil forced me to make such choices. I was in a lot of emotional pain caused by those people closest to me, mainly my parents throughout childhood. After marriage, I faced further problems and emotional distress. I am not interested in reflecting on these problems and placating blame as it compounds my burden of sorrow. If I were to catalogue the entirety of these problems to you, you may feel heartache for the experiences of my childhood and seek to provide moral support in my distress. This would be complicated to rationalise from a Western perspective and our differences in marital habits.
I am a law graduate and at my husband’s insistence I studied to complete the licence for several years but unsuccessfully. Law is not a natural interest of mine, the source materials for examinations proved especially difficult to grasp. This did not hinder my academic drive to complete the courses in order to satisfy my associates and family. Apart from the central thrust I took an interest in various metaphysical authorities; Florence Scovel Shinn, the motivational support author Louise Hay, Catherine Ponder the prosperity minister, self-help works of Debbie Ford and the spiritual dynamism of Eckhart Tolle by my 25th year of age, something uncommon within my society. I sometimes followed these teachings and achieved positive results, but I felt desperate and doubtful since my traditional and religious training conflicted with these principles. My life continued in this way, until a time that I got familiar with the works of Oprah Winfrey, an American household philanthropist again accidentally in the celebrity news on one of the satellite Farsi TV channels. I made the discovery that she is one of the most influential women in the world. Oprah Winfrey as a personality was a mystical character from my constrained Iranian background. I presumed she possessed a strength surpassing common charisma with the ability to affect lives in extraordinary ways. The dire limitations in our country prevent watching American TV channels programs due to the security impositions of the state, although we still view programmes from Farsi channels broadcast in other countries via satellite reception which is illegal in Iran. It was for this reason that I had not watched "The Oprah show" for a considerable period. These television forums for expressing the range of our daily moods were hugely influential to our community with access to Farsi 1, an Iranian channel. It was purely coincidental through an advertisement that I encountered this breath of fresh air. I developed a kinship with the television personality of Oprah even going on to embody real friendship in this surreal character. The programme proved addictive and I was enraptured. However, the Oprah show was not regularly aired on this channel, with constant repetitions of an irregular order. At any given point a programme screened 4 years prior was broadcast , sometimes the programme of 7years ago was broadcast , and sometimes one episode was repeated several times in a row.
In the course of time with my greater appreciation for the programme, I made the discovery a secret of success lies not in retaining extraordinary powers as my perception from the limited constraints of my upbringing had led me to believe. I began to appreciate normality and the grounding in presenting oneself as manifested in an everyday basis. The successful formula that seemed to produce positive results for the talk show host lay with the honesty towards her and viewers. The candour with which she spoke about your problems, life issues, preferred choices, and even mistakes in full view of the camera was startling. Her delivery was very much noteworthy and instructive to her viewers. At first I thought the targeted viewers of this program are an American audience and only relevant to patterns of life in Western society because of some embedded cultural differences. In the course of time I learnt that most of the issues raised in the Oprah show are standard human foibles then that magical day arose. As I was watching one particular showing dubbed into Farsi and the interpreter’s voice remains in my mind to this day. At approximately 19.00 hrs I suddenly imagined myself to be in the company of the talk show host as we both held each other’s attention discussing women and their goals in life. The thrust of the subject at hand was our right as women to share genuine love with another out of shared value and respect. We have the right to make choices in our livelihoods. Comparison is always to be odious and never appease others for the sake of it.
I felt a direct connection and communication with the host. From then on, I changed my thoughts. I watched other episodes of the Oprah show where guests had left occupations to pursue their aspirations, overcome fear, been firm with their spouses who showed little respect and gained a divorce. Having pursued their wishes of heart had brought a measure of happiness into their lives. At this same time as I joined the Oprah Show fans I also started to read books of Deepak Chopra and Abraham-Hicks teachings by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks. I also bought a copy of Rhonda Byrne’s “The Secret " film of the New Thought movement and gained a new definition of my life through repetitive watching of the documentary. Since then I have only engaged in activities which provide a sense of love, joy and happiness. Often in so far as I could, and if I had done something in the interests of others it would have been for personal pleasure not for fear of the reprisals. I went through long periods of contemplation as to my purpose in life. Finally I recalled the love for writing poems and stories in my childhood and adolescence. However, my parents hated my talent for writing poems and stories and believed this to be the practice of eccentrics. They insisted that I should study mathematics. I recalled that I often hid a novel or poetry book, other literary work under my math book and read them whenever opportunity availed itself. I wrote poems and stories covertly without any prior training or background. I used to write poems that surprised the university professors. I recall the time when my father caught me in one such instance. He flew into a rage and burnt all my poetry, fictional and literary books in the driveway of the house. In spite of this, I continued to write wrote poems and stories for personal pleasure. Then I got married and my poetry and imagination were ridiculed. So I gave up and abandoned my efforts up until a recent period where I decided to write again. I wrote an email to the talk show host with my limited grasp of English. On top of this I failed to understand the simple operations of a computer. Sending an email to the American media proprietor motivated me to learn how to use a computer. I spent all my savings on purchase of a laptop. Then, I started learning English. However, I have failed to make sufficient progress enabling adequate sentence construction. Therefore, I have asked one of my acquaintances for help with the translation of this letter. Now, for the time being, I am very interested in going after my real wishes. Currently my colleague is assisting with the translation of my 21short stories whilst I dedicate my time to developing my new project, a novel Relive.
Considering the fact that some of the material of this book is sacrilegious in Iran, and would thus be impossible to gaining licensing. In the face of these challenges I have chosen to seek a professional translator completion with a view to publishing my work abroad. I seek a sense of accomplishment through this life process and do not want to stagnate on its construction as such. My intentions in sending this email is to raise to your attention my position in Ardebil seek to learn of your Western culture. I look on this as a turning point in the way of fulfilling my wishes.
