For the past week, my jetlag has been on another level. It was either I didn't sleep at all or got only two hours of sleep. It's no wonder my skin has been acting out as well.
But last night was amazing. It was the first night I went to bed at my usual hour (eleven-ish) and had a good nights rest. I woke up so happy and energetic this morning, feeling like my usual self again, and it felt so soooo good. I got back into my usual routine; went to the neighbourhood mosque with my uncle dad for fajr (mum is away for a conference), had my early morning reading time, Facetimed with my sister and the kids in Brisbane, had breakfast and even managed to squeeze in a blog post before my ten o' clock meeting with my LtD girls. Ahhh I love productive days like these.
I spent the rest of the day with my family. And the highlight was when I had a spontaneous painting session with my niece Raissa. We were both nervous but I reminded her that there is no right or wrong when it comes to painting, let's just let our hands go with the flow. It was so much fun! She's sleeping over tonight (fast asleep now as I write this). My plan for her tomorrow morning is to get her to write down her thoughts or whatever it is she wants to write. She's such a book worm and has read more books than I have in my lifetime, but I want to find the writer in her too. She's destined to be in the creative world when she grows up. I can feel it. And I'd love nothing more than to help her explore her creative side.
Alright, it's less than ten minutes to midnight. As tempted as I am to edit a vlog (because I have so many footages to upload) I know sleeping now will allow me to have another early and productive day tomorrow inshaAllah.
So it's goodnight for me now. Hope you guys had a lovely day too.
Gosh, it sure feels good to be back! :)
