Countdown Started

I am so excited that it's only about one month left for me to grab my life's wheel and get back on track. The 11:11 signs I see everywhere since the year started are proving it. I don't deny being here was a great experience which opened my eyes to lots of facts. But... alas, my ambitious self is unwilling to give me peace. The toughest challenges one can meet is a daily invigorated appetite for a career / work-life, and personal needs. And on the other hand, having to consider maintaining a family together.

So meanwhile I am trying to look at the full side of the cup and use this pause time to work on myself. I am studying 3 different courses at the same time, together with job hunting mission and other self-improvement practices regarding my almost 2 years home mom routine and brain laziness. 

While I am sitting doing my studies and minding my personal business, I get flushed couple of times from my study corner and deposited in the kitchen/laundry to do some of the home responsibilities. Or I get interrupted by Julias demands to play with her or give her attention ( watch out from the pool). Multitasking takes away a lot of my focus, energy and reduces the study quality. Not to mention dealing with mom guilt later on. So being here, I really miss the kindergarten service. 

I added yoga to my daily routine, doing a 31 days challenge to keep my inner balance, it makes me feel great. I still do my Tabata workouts whenever I get the chance. At the end of the day, I entertain myself sometimes watching American Crime Story: Versace. And I read some Swedish books to improve my vocabulary. 

This is simply my recent updates. Thanks to the girls day out in a resort on the 17th. We have been treated with margarita cocktails ( my favorites), 3 meals menu with white wine, jacuzzi, pool, sunbath with cold cold beer and great female adult conversations.  I really got the chance to recharge and kick back a little. It was actually my first time to really lay down and sunbath since we got here 4 months ago.  Next girls day will be on 7th March, the only date and maybe the last that matches with the rest of the girls and their men day off to watch over the kids while we are away. Can't wait to do it all again.

Guided Meditations And Hypnosis For Your Mind And Soul

Whenever you are in a meditative mood than usual or confronted by some big questions, trying to answer them on a metaphysical level. I personally rely a lot on guided meditation, chakra balance, and even hypnosis to clean my subconscious mind. It helps me think clearly and connect with myself inner self. This will not only help you to sleep well it will also make you break out of an older pattern of relating, and encouraging another step forward in the process of understanding yourself.

But if you haven't taken time to really think about your life and where it is going lately you'll probably feel inclined to do so. This vibration is tremendously helpful for gaining insight into yourself and the course your life is on. Meditation, therapeutic massage, yoga, and writing in a journal are all activities that can help you to make the most of this essence. Be sure to schedule something like this for yourself. I recommend Louise L Hays positive affirmation and Michael Sealey guided meditation and hypnosis.

Martinique Carnival 2018

It was such an amazing experience attending the Martinique Carnival 10 - 14 Feb. Fort de France city street was full of people, music everywhere, people dressed in costumes and the parade continued from the afternoon until sunset.  We were there on the first date as a group of families with kids and we decided to attend again on the 13th on the (Devil day) but only ladies. 

The festivities start straight after the Epiphany, that is to say even up to 2 months before Shrove Tuesday. The weekends host street parades, themed events and private celebrations that grow in intensity as the season progresses. The local government and community representatives meet to organize the festivities, every Sunday sees processions throughout the island.Every village elects a Queen and Junior Queen to be carried in triumph at the grand parade. Even the grandmothers compete for the honor, dressing in their finest traditional costumes. Read more details about Martinique Carnival  

So I enjoyed one more day getting out of the usual home mom routine. As the time started to get closer to get back to Sweden one must make the most of these last few weeks. So again on the 17th we planned another moms/ladies out day to spend it by the pool in a hotel resort. I am so excited as with this treat I will be wrapping up and getting ready to be in work business mood.

Housekeeping Tips: Solving Dog Hair Problem

I used to have a cute little dog just like this one in the photo but my dog was white. I named him Oskar, sadly I could only have Oskar for few months because I couldn't keep him in the house accommodation provided by my employ. Because of guess what? dog hair. And again last year I bought a very nice second-hand carpet which was more than half the original price. Not used much! but when I got it I discovered it was full of white dog hair and the carpet was gray. I washed the carpet many times but still, I couldn't get the hair off completely.

The 5 Languages Of Love

Just in time for the Valentines day, I would like to share with you one of my favorite relationship/marriage guidebook which is very popular. It gives a good sight and understanding of how to see the relationship from your partner eye/love language. You might need to read this book in case you might go through love challenges or just to make sure you maintain a healthy marriage, noticing your partners love language. By suffocating your partner with your own love language which they might not appreciate, you're in danger of alienating them. Try to demand a bit less from the other person and a bit more from yourself - raise your tolerance level and your relationships will be much more harmonious.

The 5 Languages Of Love: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate is a 1995 book by Gary Chapman. It outlines five ways to express and experience love that Chapman calls "love languages": receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service (devotion), and physical touch. Examples are given from his counseling practice, as well as questions to help determine one's own love languages.

Chapman's book claims that the list of five love languages is exhaustive. According to this theory, each person has one primary and one secondary love language.

Chapman suggests that to discover another person's love language, one must observe the way they express love to others, and analyze what they complain about most often and what they request from their significant other most often. He theorizes that people tend to naturally give love in the way that they prefer to receive love, and better communication between couples can be accomplished when one can demonstrate caring to the other person in the love language the recipient understands. An example would be if a husband's love language is acts of service, he may be confused when he does the laundry for his wife and she doesn't perceive that as an act of love, viewing it as simply performing household duties, because the love language she comprehends is words of affirmation (verbal affirmation that he loves her). She may try to use what she values, words of affirmation, to express her love to him, which he would not value as much as she does. If she understands his love language and mows the lawn for him, he perceives it in his love language as an act of expressing her love for him; likewise, if he tells her he loves her, she values that as an act of love.

There has been a lack of research to test the validity of Chapman's model and whether it can be generalized. Egbert (2006) suggests that the Five Love Languages might have some degree of psychometric validity despite its abstract nature.

The book has been on the New York Times Best Seller list since August 2009. A new, revised edition of The Five Love Languages was released on January 1, 2015.
