Posted a new blog just catching you up on life in Libya.
I wish we could hit pause on this month. In hopes of making it last longer, I've limited online time. Putting my phone out of reach sometimes does the trick! Ramadan is the best opportunity to kick bad habits, so I'm also working on less internet time in general ! Checking my phone every few minutes certainly doesn't reflect the life I want to lead. Especially now I have Eli watching my every move. I'm taking more photos on my camera to avoid using my phone. These are hopefully small steps, in the right direction...
A couple of days ago a scary thought crept into my mind 'What if I never actually try to do anything?'. Sadly I often get sidetracked thinking my dreams will flow towards me with pure ease and bliss 🍃☁ 😂 Time for a reality check 👋 This Ramadan so far has been the absolute best! Through fasting I've been getting all the things done that have been hovering over me for months, if not yyyears!! It's the best month to grow and take full responsibility for our lives! This shelfie certainly makes me feel like I've got my life together temporarily 😅 (old photo but still 👊).
It's time to get real on here. A few weeks back I had to take off the 'zerowaster' label I had in my description. Not only am I unworthy of it right now, but have even struggled to uphold the basics 🙈 Plastic is such an issue here in Libya. The only way to avoid it is by being extremely adamant and slightly rude 🙅 I am however not going to give up. I just need inspiration, and support 🍃 One thing I have managed to accomplish, is that I purchase from brands I love. There's so many products we've stopped using (don't miss them). I'm also pleased that a good 90% of Eli's clothing are preloved, and going strong 💪
Good Morning 🌴 Last night i decided to stay up and post some photos on the blog. Seemed like a simple task, but ended up relearning how to use blogspot all over again. I never quite figured out how to do side by side photos. You'll have to forgive my never ending stream of photos, and hope I pick it up again 😅😆
Ever since Eli was born I've been on the go-go-go 🏃.. and shortly after moving back to Libya I was offered my dream job 😍 to work for Atelier, an interior design company . The battle between doing two things I love has been an internal battle. I've talked myself out of working so many times. Being a mum is the most rewarding job I've ever had. It's certainly the biggest accomplishment I have under my belt 😅 Keeping him alive, fed and extremely loved! There's no real conclusion to this post. Just my daily struggle to make it all work. I'm doing my best to find the right balance. We're now off to see my pops for #familyfriday. It's the only time I'm forced to relax, and spend quality time with loved ones ☕
