Life Follows a Plan, but the Plan is not Yours !

70 days passed since I wrote my last post about IPv6 Addressing. Long time, however I didn’t feel it. Maybe I even forgot what I was doing here or planning to do, those 70 days actually carried a lot of unplanned events.

My last post was on 24th of January and on 25th of Januaray it all started with protesters in Tahrir square asking for justice and equality for all the Egyptians, that was the begining and it ended by me now writing this post from Amsterdam, Netherlands where I currently work.

Those revolutionary days had a lot of lessons, challenges, emotions to all those who lived in Egypt within this period. I learned and changed a lot in so many ways,this revolution did not just change the history of Egypt, it also changed us the Egyptians and it may expand and change the world one day.

I don’t really know whether the change is going to be for the better and I will not claim that tomorrow will be better than yesterday but I can certainly claim that tomorrow will be different than yesterday. Six months ago  I wrote a post titled It’s time to make a change because I believed we are in a turning point in human history, the whole world is changing to something different than what it used to be, but I didn’t know then that the change would be such fast and dramatic in my homeland Egypt.

Tunasia, Egypt then Libya and who knows what is next, all of this in addition to the earthquake in Japan and its consequnces. I was lucky for beening in Egypt during those 18 days from 25th of January 2011 to 11th of February 2011, for my own good I was there sharing all the Egyptians this transitional period, participating and writing a new history with them.

In such unrest conditions that interrupts your normal life, you start to notice things that you have never noticed before. I was really lucky to pass through this experince at least I will have stories to tell my children and grandchildren one day 🙂

But there  is couple of lessons I want to share with you here:

Live NOW, don’t wait or delay your dreams. Do what you feel like NOW, its all you have.

Dare to face your deepest fears. This one only will give you the FREEDOM you deserve.

And finally the title of this post. Life follows some plan but this plan is not indeed your plan.

Now, I think I will be back gradually at least writing again about those technical stuff that I almost forget and many other issues very soon. Nice to meet you again 🙂


  1. really very nice subject

    Dare to face your deepest fears. This one only will give you the FREEDOM you deserve.

  2. all this time was wondering what happened to you. While I cant relate to everything you/Egyptians went through, I’m glad you’re well and safe. Kenya (where I live) and Africa in general seems to be going through something so interesting in relation to the rest of the world (especially if watched from a foreign media house’s perspective ) and I am sure the Tunisian/Egyptian and now Libyan revolutions will have a huge impact in how we live our lives….whether that change is for the better remains to be seen…see you around….

  3. Life follows some plan but this plan is not indeed your plan!

    You’ve ended it up with a concise yet complete wisdom Wael!

  4. Welcome back.

  5. Welcome back and god bless Egypt.

  7. Miss u alot my friend .. hope that all things going well, it’s all about the change inside ourselves.. it’s the hardest part .. it’s all about changing our attitude not just changing systems in our country

  8. one of the sweetest things you might read about this revolution
    “We Must Educate Our Children to Become Like Young Egyptian People”

    President Barak Obama

    Tariq Says:

    One day before January 25th 2011, President Obama would never have said that!

    He might have considered those young people as a big threat to the free world as they were dying on death boats trying to escape through an illegal immigration to Europe.

    Simply, that would have never been said if Egypt was not Reborn!

    “It have never been just a bound between a man and a woman, it is that I did melt into you that I became like your fingerprint… cant belong to any other person and can never be found but where you put your finger ”

    “Oh my Queen, I breathe you… and you are even more important that the air I breathe”

    And I could have never been able to say that to Rehab without being Reborn!
