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 or  even fluffy rabbits 😉

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

Sleek & Defined Mind

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 😉
