Quotes of the Day!

Life is the most awesome yet most mind boggling this ever. In one moment I go through so many feelings – some good, some bad. There is immense pressure to deliver at work, and then in your social circle, and then at home – with family and loved ones. Everywhere you go there’s expectations and sometimes they’re overwhelming. Life is awesome, but life is also hard. Sometimes, I find, that getting lost in happy thoughts, and quotes like these, makes the hard days easier to get through!



Quotes of the Day!

Here’s to trying to be a more regular blogger this year! At least on the weekdays.  Weekends are a time to laze and lounge around! Boy, am I glad it’s Friday. May you all have a wonderful weekend, spend much time under the duvet, possibly with someone lovely – even just a pet. God knows my three cats love to snuggle up to me when I’m trying to snooze…


Quotes of the Day!

Hello 2016! What an eventful year we bid farewell to. Here’s to hoping that this one is just as fun, frivolous and bursting with love, laughter, health, happiness and everything in between.

Today I bring you just one quote to embark on this new journey spanning 365 days :)

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy.”  – Norman Vincent Peale

Quotes of the Day!

Sometimes I feel like I’m not made for this world. As C. S. Lewis said, “If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world…” Nothing could sum my feelings up more perfectly today. I’m not generally a family person. Hell, I’m not a people person. I’m an introvert of the highest order. I like my space and time to be my own. I don’t like to share them with (m)any people. Only m. And the cats. I was feeling a little stifled at home and ever so slightly claustrophobic. So I went on a little trip home to see the family. Generally by day 2 or 3 I’m ready to go back, but this time, it was different. I didn’t want to come back. Since I’ve returned I’ve been blah, like something is missing. I can’t quite put a finger on what it is, but I know that something has changed.


Quotes of the Day!

I’m having one of those days where I just wanna screeeaaaaaaammmm an unending scream and just let out my frustration and maybe have a go at a punching bag. Really give it to the damn thing. Gah! For starters, I didn’t sleep well. The voltage was low and the airconditioner kept conking off. This is after the house baked in 45 degree heat all day. Then there’s the fasting. I didn’t eat much at dawn, and now my tummy feels like an empty pit and the nausea is setting in. I got called into a 9am meeting via call at midnight. It’s now noon and I still have four hours of sitting at this desk like a zombie to go… When I get home I have to organise dinner for five – we suddenly had surprise guests (of sorts) this morning! Way to wake up to THAT! My head is spinning just thinking of all that needs to be done and there really isn’t enough time. It’s so stressful in fact that I don’t wanna go home. To top it all off, my maid is having issues and hasn’t been coming in. So every day after not-nearly-enough-sleep I go home to messy rooms, unmade beds and cranky cats. I deal with all of that and then organise iftari (when we break our fast), dinner & the next day’s seheri (dawn eating thingee, pre-fasting meal). And all along, all I can think is, wow, I must be really selfish for not having a better attitude about this. Fml.

Sometimes other people’s attitudes towards me or my loved ones gets me really agitated. These quotes help me take a deep breath and just let it go. I try and have some faith that justice will be served. Eventually.

Meanwhile, I’m just trying to remember: 10 days to vacation!! *woooo!*

Quotes of the Day!

First off, a quote:

“When you feel happy, really happy, it somehow seems that you’ve always been happy and that you’ll always be happy. The same is often true when you feel sad, or lonely, or depressed, or broke, or sick, or scared. Something, perhaps, to remember.” —Notes From The Universe

And now, I know I’ve been mia for the last week. It was hard. Swamped with work, improper internet connections and the start of Ramadan. For those who don’t know, that’s when Muslims around the world fast from dawn to dusk. In this sweltering heat, reaching temperatures of 45C degrees it’s quite the killer. The worst thing is that I’m saying that as one of the fortunate ones who has the luxury of being in an air-conditioned environment over 90% of the time. My heart goes out to those who are working in less than pleasant conditions and the homeless out on the street.

I’m counting down the days to my vacation, 11 more working days till I leave. 12 actually, if I count today! I am sooooo excited. We’ll kick things off with the 4th of July fireworks (and parade if we’re lucky and not toooo tired from our 20 hour journey) and from there on it’s going to be quite packed with fun & adventure. Let’s hope we don’t crash with all the fun! Super excited on the one hand but have a tonne of stuff to deliver at work before hand. Gah! Oh well… imma keep my eyes on the prize. Americaaaa here I come! :D

So I’m afraid my comings and goings here will be scattered until then, and while on vacation, you can follow what I’m doing on twitter! Have a great week readers!! :)
