Finally I’m going home. I’m going to Cairo to see my family and besties after a very long time.

I’m a bit panicked and stressed because of punch of bad news which I will have to fix in a very short time, but I will try to relax for few days under the sun. I keep my fingers crossed.

Hope your Monday is much better than mine πŸ˜‰ XOXO

 

SUNNY DAY IN EGYPT

Good evening babes! This is how I feel under the Egyptian sun.

I couldn’t sleep so peacefully. Drivers here use their horn constantly and often honk just to greet each. Lolllll I kept counting the many car horns!!

I wake up with huge headache to find the haze is covering the city but then the sun to greet me, Yaaaay. I went for a walk and half way through it I met some friends.

I can’t explain how much I was longing to see the sun. Some places here have magical views, beautiful sunset and nice food.

Today I was shocked from some news I received in the morning but even in the darkest moments I’m trying to look for light. I believe it will work out in a way or another, not sure how but I will stay positive.

I’m no optimistic neither pessimistic, I rather to call myself realistic, I live the now, dream big, work hard on these dreams but also think of the “what if” moments.

For now I will go for dinner with my Italian friends and have a glass of wine with them to relax and boost my mood πŸ™‚

Kisses XOXO

When my alarm goes on, I don’t snooze. I get up, feed the cats, clean their sand, then brush teeth, shower, shave my legs and armpits.

Today while I was on the metro (tunnelbana, in Swedish) I was thinking that growing up was not an easy thing. Hahahaha don’t grow up guys!!

In my family I had to fight and stand up for my rights, for equality and for being a curious human, for example I was the last to ride a bike because my father taught my brother and depended on him to teach me, but that never happen till my dad realized that my younger sister and rest of my friends can cycle except me.

I was a very quite kid that it was shocking to my family that the quite girl is rebelling against all the rules. I decided to follow my dreams.

I come from Egypt and “NO” my family are not that open minded as many think or might take for granted because of my lifestyle.

Before the age of fifteen I knew that my dream was not to find the Prince Charming but, to build a career, develop my studies and be an independent girl/woman.

Be Bold: Your mind is strong so don’t be afraid to say NO. I said that to myself over and over again till I said NO!!

I paid the price of choosing a different road than the traditional one, I was hurt, but I grow up and never regretted choosing that way.

When people ask me, would you do it again if the time goes back?!

YESSSSS, I would choose the same road without hesitation, because every single mistake and every single success built the woman I’m today.

Despite all the moments that apparently made me adult, turning 30 (I’m 32 years old) can be frightening because it is about the “now” or “never” moments.

Of course there is nothing such as never but it is all about how we were raised up, how we grow old before living our youth moments.

The age of 30 is when most of people expect you to be a wife or mother, it all about the moment you dress in white.

Being a wife, being a mom, or even choosing to share a life with a partner is a choice and not having kids doesn’t make you less. Some people choose to raise kids and others (like me) choose to raise cats and sometimes dogs orΒ  even fluffy rabbits πŸ˜‰

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF & BE YOU!! J
