Never my intention

I’m sitting here on the floor waiting for my new video to upload to youtube. It’s challenging having both a youtube channel and a blog to maintain because I feel like one or the other get forgotten, but that’s never my intention.

I really wanted to step back in Ramadan and not post anything meaningless. But now that we’re back in our everyday lifestyle it’s time to get back into some old routines as well. Leave your bad habits behind and focus on the positive. Take with everything good you’ve learned this Ramadan and implement it in your daily life.

For me that is working out and eating regularly and more healthy again. I usually don’t crave any sweets anyway, but I’ve missed the working out part. I’m already sore from yesterdays leg workout. I also want to make more videos but I won’t promise anything I can’t keep. Other than that there are some projects I’m working on here at home that I’ll hopefully be able to share when they are done.

Summer is coming

Today was such a beautiful day. It did say it would rain today but the skies cleared up and the sun came out to shine. I went out for a walk around 1 p.m and took my time, looking at the beauty that we can soon call summer. After an hour and a nice long trip around our area I found myself home again. The little one slept the second half of our stroll and was well raised when we arrived home.

I had to stop and take some snapshots as well. Even got up close to a butterfly. One of the most beautiful, tiny creatures. And the colors of the beautiful flowers bring me so much joy. Summer is coming and you can finally see it.

Home sweet home

Home at last. I’ve been up since 7 a.m because we were going to leave the house an hour later. One hour become two, and eventually we were on our way to Sweden. Today we planned on buying food for almost the entire family. Which ment a lot of halal meat, capri-sun and as we speak a full fridge. After about five hours we arrived home and I’m finally sitting down on the couch and taking a breather.

Tomorrow is a new week and a chance to start over again. Also a new YouTube video! Hopefully I’l be able to pre-film something as well.

Have a great Sunday!

A day at home

Today I took a day off work, just because. I don’t feel the same drive and ambition towards my job and then it’s no point for me to work even though I get paid. Because we depend on the income of our customers to get paid, there was really no point in going to work when I only had one client today. It’s also nice to take a breather once in a while and recharge.

Ahead of me awaits breakfast, video editing and a job application. For some reason I always get nervous to personally deliver a CV, even though I talk to stranger every single day. The most important thing for me is to not think about it too much beforehand and remember that I’ve done this before.

Tips on submitting an application personally:

  • Dress in something you are comfortable in, but be presentable at the same time
  • Have all your papers ready. Most companies want to see a CV, certificate and diploma
  • Think ahead of what you want to say
  • Take x numbers of breaths
  • Greet the boss with a smile and a handshake

Whatever happens, happens. If it’s ment to be you will be called in for an interview, if not, something better awaits you!

Comment below and let me know if you have any adding tips to the list above.

Back home

I took a well deserving break in London, and I decided not to write as you may have noticed. I need to enjoy the moment and re-charge, and working on not being ‘online’ all the time. I’ve noticed that all these social media’s, especially snap, instagram and Facebook, which you are suppose to have, are stressing me out. I read about this the other day and it said that it is the routine you’ve made through these apps that make you addicted. For instance, you have to check your phone when you wake up, and it’s part of your morning routine. I tune in to snapchat, instagram and Facebook because I think that I’ve missed something while I was asleep. I take my phone everywhere, it’s become my safety blanket. If I think I’m being noticed or watched out on the street, I take my phone out and act as if I’m scrolling down to read something important. I take it with me to bed, to the bathroom and I can’t remember a day I went without it.

It’s scary, being addicted. Even though we think it’s harmless, I think it’s destroying our image of people today. We strive to be perfect, and we think everything is picture perfect. Then when an obstacle comes we do not know what to do, thinking we are the only once experiencing it. This has made me consider to delete my social media and not being pushed or forced to check it all the time. Maybe this will give me an inner peace.

Little things
Please end it
End this life like it is written for me 
I want to leave my pain behind, start over
I don’t want this life, I never chose it
But You did for me, You planned it
It has to be a reason behind it
Cause this can’t be it all
Why this ache to leave this place?
Cause I never feel like I’m home
I want to go home 
Please take me home

Home-(less)

The day has come.. I’m without a home for the next three weeks. But I’m staying with my mum till we’re on our 2,5 week long vacation in one week. Oh, how the butterflies are coming and I can hardly wait. My favorite thing to do – travel – getting to the unknown, discover new places and experiencing new cultures.

I’ve tried to make myself as comfortable as possible at my moms again, which can be harder than it seems since I’ve never felt truly at home where she lives. So I can’t wait to see the new place again and move in. I’m proud of myself though. I haven’t cried since I left my place this morning but my heart aches to go back there. I know I can’t change the present so there is no point in complaining about things I have no control over and can’t do anything about.

“When life gives you lemon, make lemonade”.

Now my eyes are about as tired as they can get so I’ll end this post now with wishing you all a good night.
