PAUSE FOR THOUGHTS


Jasmine ElnadeemJasmine ElnadeemJasmine ElnadeemJasmine Elnadeem

Life is sometime like roller coaster. You get hurt, you forgive, you will be happy, then you will be hurt again.

Sometimes we do the same mistakes because of an emotional need or because of being unable to change. Sure it hurts? But when you get to a point when you cry more than you laugh, then you might start to realize that you need a change in your life.

In bad times true friends show up, and those who liked you for other reasons fade away.

True friends are those who you can embrace your weirdness with them. You can be emotional, you can laugh and cry without fear.

Friends are important but as I grow up, I learn to stop having those who use me or take me for granted.

Yes we are all social creatures and we love communication with people, but I like to do that with people I love.

I connect with those who bring happiness to me, support me and stay with you in the darker times. Surrounding yourself with feel-good people is a sure way to happiness.

Some of my friends don’t live in Sweden but they inspire me and relieve my tension on the bad days.

I always wait for my daily Snapchat “Bonjour” and the Whatsapp funny pictures.

It was great to see my best friend in Amman, Jordan who took good care of me and I felt like a princess.

I’m counting down to be reunited with those who really care for me.

It is never late to make new friends, but we need to choose well.

XOXO

Are You Curious? Do you want to know more about me?

Let me tell you what J LOVES

I’ve gotten used to be one of the early birds. I do get up early even without setting my alarm on.

Yes I’m one of those maniacs who check my phone, Instagram and Twitter first thing in the morning.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, I used to be able to skip breakfast to sleep a little longer, but that’s impossible now. I seriously have to start my day with a nice breakfast! And when I’m out travelling, my whole trip is ruined if the hotel doesn’t have a nice breakfast buffet.

I like working out in the morning but sometimes I do it later in the afternoon depend on my work schedule. I’m obsessed with making playlists to fit the rights vibes of my moves.

Music makes everything better. It reminds me what a gift it is to be alive and breathing. Good music is like good food. It doesn’t matter where it originated.

From 9.00 to 16:00 it is all about Work, work, work. I love working with those who have good ideas and can speak up their minds.

I listen to music when I’m working as I’m able to work fairly well among ordinary distractions.

I blog usually early in the morning or late in the night but that doesn’t mean that I’m not blogging all the time using different platforms. To be honest when I’ve got something to say, I write. LOlllll!

I like to eat an early dinner around 18.00 and you will win my heart if you cook for me or get me some sushi. I have no restraints and I save calories where I can by drinking juices and eating light but I splurge when I really want something.

If I go to meet friends, I do get ready fast that I’m sometimes the first one ready of my friends.

My question to you: what you do on a daily basis? Do you have a routine and when do you feel more productive?! Do you usually blog like me?!

XOXO

ONLY THE LONELY

My inner critic keeps me awake at night.

When I’m down, I don’t leave my room for days, I don’t eat, sleep or stop thinking.

Being overwhelmed with much emotions makes me down, so down that I can barely move my limbs, get out of bed or even smile at my loved ones.

And when I’m happy I’m like a manic, I love life, people and I’m open for crazy ideas .

I dreamt to be with someone who knows how to hold me, speak softly in my ears and say “IT IS GONNA BE OK, BABE”.

Being surrounded with those who can’t help you or make you feel down all the time, it can be really hard.

Last time I broke down, a darling friend took my hand and tucked me into bed and I just felt as safe as a baby.

Today I’m far away from my darlings, sometimes I feel shaky, anxious and I panic. Panic attacks makes my anxiety have an incredible effect on my ability to control my emotions. Recently I’m showing inappropriate anger, but sometimes anger is necessary.

During my anxiety I empty my bladder frequently, I get numbness in my arm, I get nightmares, I feel on the edge, when anyone snaps at me I keep thinking non stop about that, my decisions are indecisive, I’m afraid of the crowd and being left alone at same time, my body/muscles are tense and in pain, I’m easily frightened.

I don’t know what I’m doing and though thinking of my problems for hours, I don’t think they are resolved. To me, the world is just a big scary place. Basically I feel losing control. I’m afraid of what waiting me for me in the future.

Strangely enough, I keep thinking of the things I have not yet accomplished.

Feeling that the walls are closing in around to suffocating me.

Anxiety can destroy your confidence in yourself!!!!!!

I’m no a superwoman. I’m still trying to stand out strong. Next month I’m gonna be 32 years old, so I’m a survivor.

In the end it is no shame to feel unwell or to recognize that you are hurt or disappointed or depressed.

Being depressed doesn’t define me, it allows me to see my human emotions which I’m proud and ashamed of them.

PS: This post is in memory of my best-friend who passed away at a young age.
