SUN-KISSED | JORDAN HERE I COME!

Good morning babes! My vacation and flight mood are on 🙂

How to have a blissful summer holiday? The answer is simple: plan to enjoy whatever summer brings you wether beach, villa, mountains or even those relaxing moments of breaks under the sun.

When my doctor told me few years ago that I have a cancer, I smiled. My therapist asked me to let it out and cry but I laugh when I panic or feel tired.

But lately I broke down front of my boyfriend and kept crying for over two hours nonstop. I said I’m tired emotionally and mentally. That’s (for me) the worst to deal with.

Tears are a signal to pause and allow people to feel sad but for me it was a signal to say I’m extremely tired. I need an exit plan!!

Finally I’m out for some days and it was so nice to wake up in my best-friend’s house in Amman, go for a morning walk and have breakfast in front of the pool. I think I can live here for a while. Hahaha I know that my best friend won’t mind me living with him.

I slept without Internet or notifications for the first time in a very long time then wake up to 33C in Amman. OMG I’m in heaven!

I have been to Amman before for a business trip but it feels so good to be back. It is so hot up here hahaha and that feels good.

These days all I’m doing is stop trying to be perfect. I’m gonna only enjoy the sensation of my body relaxing.

I’m learning how to manage my inner critic thoughts which can stop me sometimes from achieving my goals or enjoying my life.

I realized with the help of my therapist that sometimes I tend to say sabotaging things to myself while I always encourage others. I’m trying to talk to myself as if I was encouraging my dear friends.

Now I will jump in the pool like a kid and allow the sun to kiss my body 🙂

It is not even my birthday yet but I decided to escape the rainy Stockholm on the weekend and treat myself and my boyfriend with a nice spa at Yasuragi.

OMG I didn’t think that the place is so nice till I saw it and then I was blown away. I didn’t even know that Stockholm has such a fine gem.

We went to Hasseludden with the boat to find our hotel which was surrounded with a pretty forest.

Imagine the rainy weather, and the cold temperate then imagine yourself swimming in the pool or one of the hot springs outside overlooking the forest and the Baltic Sea.

I loved the concept of “COME AS YOU ARE”, as upon your arrival you’re given your yukata – the cotton Japanese robe – along with a pair of slippers and a swimsuit. That’s intended to be your clothing during your stay, and you’re totally encouraged to wear it for everything including mealtimes. Awww it was so comfy indeed.

I had a massage, we used the sauna, the steam room, had an amazing healthy Japanese dinner, then I went for a body scrub and a face massage. Believe me I slept like a baby and felt so much energized.

Today I love my Monday but I’m sure that soon I will be longing for a night of “PEACE & QUIET” like that 🙂

Hope y’all enjoyed your weekend! XOXO

Small cat .. Big cat .. I LOVE them all!

They say that reality is just a state of mind, but how to deal with a busy mind.

There are many things can make up a busy mind such as emotions, anxieties, fears, joys, relationships, etc.

You need to work with your mind and learn to drop your thoughts. Drop all these busyness, even if it may feel like you need to work on their content, it is ok to drop thoughts for a while.

Remember that busy mind leads us to do things to ease our pain in excess as watching too much TV, drink, emotional eating,feeling sick, etc..

It’s important that we learn to make compromises with our mind and not sit down with the discomfort. We need to learn when to stop chasing our problems.

Usually I know that I just needed to work less, relax more or generally revamp my circumstances and relationships in order to be empty my mind or live in peace.

But I also believe in the power of communication:

  • Sometimes all you need is sit down and write everything that is weighing you down mentally and then burn it and decide to let it go.
  • Speak up about the difficult experiences you passed as at that moment you will see them as useful and empowering instead of something to stress you out.
  • Tell someone how their actions affected you badly instead of holding it in and getting false conclusions.

In the end I always try to remember who I really want to be and I rather free my mind, grow, learn, express my emotions and thoughts freely. I won’t let my mind run on and on endlessly 😉

XOXO
