So excited to eat this that I forgot to open my eyes 😂😂
It’s normal to not eat perfectly, taking care of yourself comes in a lot of forms, & sometimes that means allowing yourself to have a treat & NOT feeling guilty about it 🍦💖

Haven’t been training for more than 1 week. Lost my motivation a bit. But now i decided to get back on track. 🕊
The colour of these coral peonies is so beautiful, I have to get them on my feed 😍 Peonies are my favourite flower of all time - and I probably love them even more because we can only have them at this time of year. And a bit like all those things we can’t currently do, but wish we could - it’ll feel even better when they are back in our life again. A reminder of what is important. And there’s a life lesson from peonies. I think I need a gin.
My Salaam to everyone. I know we all are going through difficult times. Every country including Pakistan has more than one problem to deal with.On the other hand, miserable people like racists are not making anything any better. I mean, aren't you human? Weren't you created to be humans? And by saying that we have to be humans, I want to make it clear that being humans means having humanity. And I guess the meaning of humanity is quite clear.
Below is an extract from my book "Isn't It True?" Known as "Happiness and Sadness" because we all need it I guess. "Happiness, joy, delight...why do we love these words but hate sadness, gloom, melancholy and everything that relates to it? Why do we run and reach, run and reach and run and reach towards happiness when all we do for sadness is keep backing off, backing off and backing off until we hit the wall behind called realization that we can't hide from sadness anymore? Why don't we just accept the fact that if we keep running away from it, it will only chase us. It will make us run until we physically can't take it anymore, until we will be too tired to even call for help, or defend ourselves ,let alone the fact that we would be in no position to strike back. So why don't we turn the tables? why don't we run behind it, make it hopeless and then make it beg us to stop chasing it? And then defeat it once and for all? Why don't we do it while we still have time? I promise, once we get determined to win over sadness, infinite happiness will come to us itself..." #tb to last year and Chitral. I lovely place with thousands of roses. P.s I miss having that long hair.

Repost as I wasn’t aware of the movement on Tuesday and I can only apologise. Missing this glorious weather already and being stuck inside our shoebox cottage for the next 2 weeks with my whirlwind toddler is far less appealing than topping up my tan whilst she plays in the paddling pool 😩 I thought it was supposed to be summer now?!
This girl loves so joyfully. We pour love and silliness and affection into her, and it springs forth from her to others.
Here is my hope today: if our children are the future, we get to help shape the future not just by the way we take action, but in how we raise the next generation to act.
The language we use, the things we model, the values we instill... it is up to US to break off the systemic oppression here and now. To educate ourselves on the injustices and slurs that were normalized as we grew up, and shift the way we speak and stand up for others in front of our children.
To not only say “I am with you,” but to raise our children with open eyes to be champions for inclusivity, justice, and freedom.
How we respond to each other right now matters. They are WATCHING. They will learn and they will repeat. What do we want their lives to echo from ours?
It’s not us who will experience the fullness of change that happens in our generation, it is the next generation who will live in what we create for them, and they will continue to pass their learned values down.
Rowan gives me hope. The way she models how we treat her and behave in front of her gives me hope. So we will teach her to do better than we knew to do. We will show her through our actions and reactions.
Pearl Street Beach - Laguna Beach, Ca 📍
When the walls feel like they’re caving in, somehow I always find myself unwinding and finding peace at the beach. This is definitely one of my favorite beaches in SoCal 🌊 •
Can you spot the lone boat adrift out at sea? #boundless
I quickly snapped this when I was outside reading earlier in the sunshine as I really am trying to take more instant photos for Instagram, as this is what the platform started out to be! ⭐️ I finished reading The Family Upstairs earlier today and I absolutely loved it, I could not put it down and was totally gripped the entire way through! Would definitely recommend 💜 Now I’ve finished that I’ve just started reading Blood Orange as I’ve had so many recommendations to read it ⭐️
⛰️Горы Аватара часть 3. Про цены / Prices (🇬🇧 at the bottom)
На какие цены расчитывать, приехав сюда?
Отель. За два дня я заплатила 613 юаней (77 евро). В цену не входит завтрак. Стандартный набор стоит 30 юаней (3.79 евро). Я была очень довольна едой, все супер вкусно.
Сам парк огромный, и билеты продают сразу на 4 дня. Нет варианта взять на один день, к сожалению. Билет на 4 дня стоит 228 юаней (28.77 евро). В билет входит передвижение на автобусах по парку и все. Все фуникулеры, лифты и прочее покупаются отдельно. Поездка вверх стоит 76 юаней каждый раз (9.59 евро). В самом парке есть рестораны, даже есть Макдак и KFC, но цены везде завышены.
How much money do you need when visiting Zhangjiajie National Park.
Hotel. For two nights I payed 613rmb (77euro). The breakfast is not included in the price, I payed 30rmb (3.79 euro) for a set, and was very happy with my choice. Everything was delicious.
The national park is huge, that’s why the tickets are sold for 4 days only. There is no such thing as one-day ticket. The entrance price was 228rmb (28.77 euro), it includes the bus rides inside the area. However, for every cable car or elevator, or everything else in the park you have to pay separately. One ride on the cable car is 76rmb (9.59 euro), Inside the park there are many restaurants, even Mcdonalds and KFC, the prices are higher than they should be though.

It’s been more than two months at home and we’re going through this wave of emotions, learning to unlearn and adapt.
First, the uncertainty and anxiety, cancel your plans, stay home, adapt to new work environment. 😨
Then the unexpected relief seeping in, coy about enjoying the slowing down process. 😅
And currently the withdrawals. The what-ifs, the but-whens. 🤔
