Sisters who break the floor together (not literally, lol!) stay together. ❤️

I don’t feel like writing any motivational stuff today, because I am brain dead. 😃 Sorry to all those who message me just to ask when I’ll be uploading the next post! .
.
So, where were we? I get distracted so easily. Lol. Yes, we were talking about breaking the floors, and by that I mean dance workouts. I have recently started doing Zumba with sisters at home, and it is such an enjoyable experience. You not only feel super-active, but it is fun to dance like a maniac with sisters too. In case, you are a person like me, who doesn’t like the usual workouts including the squats and stuff, Zumba is for you darlings! You can find the videos easily over the internet. Not just this, but you should do 1 mile ‘Leslie Walk’ daily if you are doing a desk job. It keeps you fresh & fit, and in shape. .
.
Not just the body, but your mind needs shaping as well. When stress and everyday anxiety gets way too much, do yoga and meditation. As above, you can easily find anti-stress yoga on YouTube. It really helps eliminate toxins out of your mind, and removes the dump and baggage that you carry along. My favourite is ‘Yoga With Adriene’ on YouTube, as it really helps me get through depressive episodes. .
.
We all look after physical health, but mental health is as important, so make yoga and meditation a part of your routine. Pair together with a sister or friend, and have some fun too. We laugh like crazies on stupid postures and moves, and that is what makes exercise interesting and releases every day stress too. That’s enough for today! But, I just remember, some daily-use apps and portals that help increase productivity, peace and mindfulness. That all, I will tell you in some other post. Till then, take care and lots of love! ❤️

PS: I don’t have any other picture to post, so uploading this with the crappy quality!

A stop at Porth Hellick for a crunchy walk along the seashell strewn sands on this stretch of deserted beach, and if you have your camping gear handy (some Cornish Scillionians do), I reckon you could pick some wild Chamomile, and brew yourself a cup of tea ... Though why you would want an herbal tea to relax on the @islesofscilly I cannot imagine ... Perhaps as a break from all the wonderful small batch gins they're producing on St Agnes at @westward_farm ... With aromatic herbs like Chamomile and Elderberry, Palma and Violet, Rose and Geranium, honey and orange, put into brews called 'Wild Wingletan' ... why would you want to drink anything else? Okay, gin lover's confession; there's an explosion of great gins happening right now in England and Scotland, and I'll just have to taste them all before I can make up my mind! 😝 ... Meanwhile, always keep a large bottle of Bombay Sapphire and Hendricks available for those occasions when garden parties call for larger doses in punch bowls ... Or so says this Miss Manners, who very much wants to swim out to that boat right this minute! A night on the beach at Porth Hellick wouldn't go astray, would it? Then straight back to a 5⭐ cottage for me ... 🏕🏊🍹☀🐚

P.S. I hear Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall dropped by to visit @westward_farms yesterday, and I feel quite sure their Scillionian tipple will make the cut in some bespoke flasks around Buckingham Palace this summer ... The bespoke Gin's label is designed with the Celtic Tree of Life, but when it comes to Gin; Celts and Saxons will no doubt be happy to bury the Viking hatchet! Huzzah! ✍
Cheers ... By the way, did I ever tell you that I love Cornwall-Scilly?

My favorite “home” and “office” on the Cuban countryside, found on @airbnb 💚
.
.
This August will mark 7 years of quitting my full time job in Singapore and rebuilding life as a freelancer, entrepreneur and travel blogger! For the longest time, this digital nomad life didn’t allow me to go out of connectivity for longer than a couple of days without having a near panic attack - thinking about emails that needed my attention, projects I could be missing out on, deadlines that needed to be met and staying active on social media. I knew I had to be working from everywhere, latching on to wifi everywhere, if I wanted to make this life work. .
.
But in Cuba, I realised things have finally changed. That I didn’t hesitate to book flight tickets knowing that it meant 2 weeks of no connectivity. That when I realised wifi works pretty fast in public parks, I wasn’t tempted to use it everyday. That I was ready for a digital detox without any panic attacks. That I’m no longer a complete slave to the internet 😉
.
.
And in Cuba, I took to writing furiously. The vibrant streets, the gorgeous countryside, conversations with locals, I found inspiration everywhere. And writing for the sake of writing - not for Instagram, not for the blog, not for an assignment - sure felt therapeutic. Now I feel strangely nostalgic about the good old days of little technology - even though I never quite experienced them in my adult life. And now I must pledge to not become a slave to the online world again 🤥

And you, how do you balance your online-real life time? .

Munasib nahi’n - Its not safe #lovePoem #Khamoshi #urdu #Punjabi #Poetry #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #Imagination
#Birha

It's not safe for you to be loved by me.
July 09, 2014

Munasib nahi’n hai ye tere liye, Ki tujhse main muhabbat hi karlu
Dil mein jajbat boht hai’n tere liye, Aur teri yaad mein kuch pal, Aahein hi bhar lu
Par munasib nahi’n hai ye tere liye, Ki tujhse main muhabbat hi karlu

Dekha tha jis pal tumhe, Zindgi thehar gayi thi,
Socha us pal ko main kaid hi karlu
Bahon mein thamu tujhko main, Tujhe ang bharlu
Basa us lamhe ko apni ankhon mein, Palke main band karlu
Par munasib nahi’n hai ye tere liye, Ki tujhse main mohabbat hi karlu

Ye duniya degi tane tujhe, Mere is kadar jane par,
Ik ashiq ke mar jane par, Haye mar jane par
To kese koi uthti anguli teri or main sehen karlu
Apne dil o zehen mein uthte, Is malal ko hi main zarlu
Jab munasib nahi’n hai ye tere liye, Ki tujhse main mohabbat hi karlu

Hota nahi’n mel kabhi, Shole aur shabnam ka,
Jana hai kya hashara hota hai, Lo mein jal patange ka
To kese tujhe is ishq e junoon mein, Fannah hote hue main jarlu
Apne hi hathon se main teri kabar qubool karlu
Jab munasib nahi’n hai ye tere liye, Ki tujhse main mohabbat hi karlu

Lakho haseen dil fida hote hai’n, Is ishq e tassavur par,
Kya khasa hai tujhme, tere ishq mein,
Jo natije jankar kar bhi main, Nazar andaz sab karlu
Tujhse izehar e ikrar e muhabbat bhi main karlu
Jab munasib nahi’n hai tere liye, Ki tujhse main muhabbat hi karlu
Aur teri yaad mein, Kuch pal aahein hi bharl

Those who know me, know how much of a writing nerd I am. I only do two things when I am not working; reading or writing. I have read hundreds of books and novels, ranging from science fiction, poetry, dystopia, mystery, thrillers to fanfictions and history etc. As they say, you need to be a reader to be a writer. Reading is not just my escape from the reality, but it is self-reflection for me too. It is with intensive reading that I realized, man oh man, I can write! ❤️
.
.
I have previously written two different manuscripts, and decided to just throw them without even reading again. However, something yesterday, made me reflect on my life goals and I realized, I have always wanted to write a novel among all the other dreams that I have. I will check them off, one by one, In Sha Allah. ☺️
.
.
With this in mind, and a kick-ass story that just popped up while having this conversation with my sister yesterday, I decided to give novel writing a shot once again. I know, I am lazy and procrastinate a lot when it comes to novels, but right now, I feel a lot enthusiastic. The story and plot is so close to my heart, I wish to complete it no matter how long it takes to put that last period! 🧡
.
.
Pray, pray, pray that there comes a day, when I close a notebook with satisfied smile. Ameen. Here’s to the future filled with characters, stories and obviously, writing! 📖

ਸਾਰਾ ਸਾਲ ਪੜ੍ਹਾਈ ਕਰਨ ਮਗਰੋਂ ਪ੍ਰੀਖਿਆ ਦਾ ਸਮਾਂ ਆਉਦਾ ਹੈ।ਜਿਸਤੇ ਸਾਡਾ ਬੇਹਤਰ ਭਵਿੱਖ ਨਿਰਭਰ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ ਔਰ ਅਸੀਂ ਪਾਸ ਹੋ ਕੇ ਹੀ ਅੱਗੇ ਵਧਦੇ ਹਾਂ।ਜੋ ਪਾਸ ਨਹੀ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਉਹ ਅੱਗੇ ਨਹੀ ਵਧ ਪਾਉਦੇ।ਜਿੰਦਗੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਵੀ ਕੁੱਝ ਅਜਿਹਾ ਹੀ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ।ਸਾਨੂੰ ਆਲੇ ਦੁਆਲੇ ਤੋਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗਾਂ ਤੋਂ,ਆਪਣੀਆਂ ਗਲਤੀਆਂ,ਵਿੱਦਿਆ ਤੋਂ ਕੁੱਝ ਸਿੱਖਿਆਵਾਂ ਮਿਲਦੀਆਂ ਹਨ ਤੇ ਫਿਰ ਸਾਡੀ ਪ੍ਰੀਖਿਆ ਦਾ ਸਮਾਂ ਆਉਦਾ ਹੈ।ਸਾਡੇ ਸਾਹਮਣੇ ਮੁਸੀਬਤਾਂ ਆ ਖੜ੍ਹੀਆਂ ਹੁੰਦੀਆਂ।ਇਹ ਵੇਲਾ ਔਰ ਵਿਸ਼ਾ ਬੜਾ ਮੁਸ਼ਕਿਲ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ ਤੇ ਏਸ ਨੂੰ ਪਾਸ ਕਰਕੇ ਹੀ ਅਸੀ ਅੱਗੇ ਵਧਣਾ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ।ਜੋ ਆਪਣੀਆਂ ਗਲਤੀਆਂ ਔਕੜਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਕੁੱਝ ਨਹੀਂ ਸਿੱਖਦੇ ਓਹ ਏਸ ਵੇਲੇ ਮਾਯੂਸ ਦਿਖਾਈ ਦਿੰਦੇ ਨੇਂ ਤੇ ਅੱਗੇ ਵਧਣ ਤੋਂ ਅਸਮਰਥ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਨੇਂ ਅਤੇ ਜਿਨਾਂ ਨੇ ਸਬਕ ਦ੍ਰਿੜ ਕੀਤੇ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਹਨ ਉਹ ਪਾਣੀ ਵਾਂਗ ਅੱਗੇ ਵਧਦੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਹਨ।ਗਲਤੀਆਂ ਮੁਸੀਬਤਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਡਰਨਾ ਨਹੀ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ ਤੇ ਏਸ ਪਿੱਛਲੇ ਸਬਕ ਨੂੰ ਅਪਨਾ ਕੇ ਪ੍ਰੀਖਿਆ ਲਈ ਤਿਆਰ ਹੋਣਾ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ ਹੈ।
ਦੇਖਣਾ ਮੁਸੀਬਤਾਂ ਦੇ ਓਸ ਪਾਰ ਮੰਜਿਲ ਤੁਹਾਡਾ ਇੰਤਜ਼ਾਰ ਕਰ ਰਹੀ ਹੈ।

Those words... They pounded on her soul
Like rain and wind
Wind and rain
Comforting
Disconcerting
Loosening the grime
Shaking the dirt
And begging her soul
To sing again
