EXPLORING STOCKHOLM

EXPLORING STOCKHOLM





Gamlastan is one of my favorite places in Sweden. The beautiful skyline and backdrop of lake and gorgeous view of the swans in the lake I mean just stunning. Staying here and experiencing the culture of the people. We walked around the city and explored the museums and the great locations. Spent a lot of time near the lake I think that was beautiful. Just enjoying the sun and the waves and talking. Sometimes just relaxing makes things much more fun. 









So the summer weather is really such a fun time to get out and explore the city. We had a lovely dinner in a Thai restaurant and he one thing about Swedish people that really made me so aware of how to speak was in the restaurant. They are very soft spoken people and in the restaurant I couldnt hear them at all. You almost start whispering to make sure you dont sound loud, that was one of the funniest experiences. The entire hotel was made out of glass and just beautiful to be able to see the stockholm from every part of it. 










We settled and have travelled so much but the peace and quiet is really one of my favorite things about stockholm. My other favorite thing obviously is shopping.  guess the syle and chose of the clothes might be more expensive than anywhere else in the world but I love the style and quality of clothes here. We enjoy our weekends exploring the stores and shopping if i find something and then go to the park and meeting friends. Just going downtown to the city and getting a drink and we have also seen a few of the partying places and absolutely found them really amazing fun time. 







One of the only downsides of Stockholm is that there aren't many Indian restaurants they are mostly Bangladeshi food which is sweeter. I really missed the spicy food that I so enjoy a lot! One of my great fav restaurants is Shanti in the city center the food is really amazing. i wish there are more spicy food places though! That is the one thing I miss a lot.  








Taking a break from my career is probably one of the best things I have done I feel. I get to travel with my husband around the world and explore places which I couldnt do for a very long time thanks to my crazy work lifestyle. Our plan in the next 2 years is to explore as many gorgeous places in Europe and take our time exploring the places and enjoying that. One of things I definitely wanted to do after settling down. Getting our time, its important to prioritize our life and make sure to enjoy the time we spend with our family as well. That is the most important thing as ever. 





Sweden has always been one of the places that fascinated me even before I came here. One of the most peaceful and beautiful Norwegian countries with polite, calm and a very relaxing place to live in. We explored one of my favorite places called 'Gamlastan, its the heart of Stockholm city and just about had a blast with my hubby as we went around tasting some exotic food from thai to indian to continental...I love Italian personally so the pastas and pizzas are my staple diet...not very good but combine it with greens :D absoluely love adding salads and green juice into my diet, something I feel will help change my routine and gotta get healthier with age for sure.

FIRST SELFIE

FIRST SELFIE




I was sorting my photo folders recently and conserving lotta my memories on GOOGLE PHOTOS. If you guys havent used this feature of google yet you are missing out! Google has come up with a great alternative to storing pics and videos. You can simple login to your google account and access the google photos app and upload all your pics for UNLIMITED space! How amazing is that.  I dont need to now go thru my computer or hard drive if i wanna see my pics and its made it hell of a lot easier uploading pics to my social media sites being able to access it anywhere! So make sure to check it out! So as I was sorting my pics I came across these pics from way back! I was so obssessed with my sunglases I still am but these were taken in college. It was the first sunglasses I really was obsessed with the blue frame which have gained popularity now. I laugh at the pics now when i see how I am playing with the camera :D





I still cant believe I had taken these pics on my not so great camera in my college days. Gosh my make up looks so overdone and as you can ell everything was pink and that was my fav colour. Which thank god changed from shocking pink to maroon and black. But I guess I still look back on these pics and remember sitting in my room I did do the selfie and made it happen a while back and of course the craze moved after that who knew the selfie world would become such a movement when i had taken these pics ages ago! I also realise the look was bad and the photos are blurry but sometimes dont you get bored of perfection. I somehow find great memories in imperfection.

HANDLING JUDGEMENTAL PEOPLE

HANDLING JUDGEMENTAL PEOPLE


In every phase of our life we come across people who change our lives. It might be in both good and bad ways. However, the scars the bad moments leave on us really is the determining factor to how we enjoy the good. These are few of the things I have come to realise about people…

People will always have opinions 

It’s a world wide fact that we cant help but have a viewpoint on things. As human nature has it we just have to say something rude or mean about someone and it stems from basic self insecurities. Most people I have come across who have been rude just do it to feel better about themselves. If you are happy person, most probably you will want to  make sure you make other people happy too!

Its not your fault 

Often times we beat ourselves up thinking maybe I am the problem. Maybe I am fat, or ugly or just a loser. Maybe they mean what they say . Since a group of people are doing the same things or saying the same things it slowly eats into your subconscious that mauybe its you. SNAP OUT OF IT! It’s not! And the moment you let them get to you, THEY WIN!



Draw a line

       Enough is enough. I have heard people say ‘Be the bigger person’, ‘Don’t respond just go quiet. YAH RIGHT. Easier said than done. No one is gonna just sit back to listen to the nonsense being told. Confront them and question the statements. Don’t attack back or speak in the same way. Theres no difference. Just rationalize. You are doing this more for you than them. You are the better person remember.

Time to let go     
 
They say forgive and forget. I am not very good with the forgetting  part but I do try and forgive. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been wrong in my life. There are so many moments I feel I have messed up or been rude myself, but I consciously either apologize or try and sort the issue out if its my fault. And Im happy to say I was able to retain some friends as a result of the same. If someones worth it make the effort or just let it be. You don’t need to make everyone happy. It will consume you!



Self respect above all

Its more important to make sure that you are happy and content with your life than anything else. If someone is pulling you down, just disconnect from that energy. Don’t try to argue your way or prove that you are gonna give it. Nope not a solution. U will feel worse and drained and probably emotionally harmed. The best solution I have found with judgmental people is don’t give them anything to discuss, so just preserve yourself by not even responding to negativity.

Their behavior is a reflection of them not you 

     Finally, I will conclude by saying, you might have tried being good and sort the issues. Still hasn’t worked. So you try harder. Still u feel your being judged. Give it your best shot. But if the person continues to rude to you its just goes to show you that they probably don’t wanna solve a problem with you. They want to just create a problem.

FOLLOW ME TO...


Its been my favorite photography offlate. I came across this beautiful most popular pics recently and I got curious. Photographer Murad Osman, travelled with his girlfriend whos featured in all these pics to some of the worlds most beautiful destinations.  From Taj Mahal to Eiffel Tower, he covers all these pictorials effortlessly. The colour  contrast, beauty and lighting effects make the overall look of the pics beyond magic. I totally love the way the hand is stretched out….it says ‘Im here for you’ even though shes turned away…Ironic in a way!  True love and romance really can be seen in these pics. I love the way it shows you the look of each country iconic backgorounds yet her hand seems to be dominating the whole seen in the pictures. Makes you think that romance is just in your hands to create. You can just do it in a picture, a  moment, a single gesture. Anything you display shows the beauty of  th love that you share for someone else and its about showing all your loved ones how much you love them. Say it, show it and do ithings to make them happy often.

AN INSPIRING POEM

AN INSPIRING POEM




My friend she shared her story. In her own words, here goes. I would like to tell you that this is just to try and help someone out there. She wanted to share it. Many people dont understand whats depression. So here goes in her own beautiful poem.


The day started with negativity. 
I really dont understand it anymore.
Maybe  I have become demanding. 
Maybe my priorities have changed. 
Either ways I am having tough time managing my emotions. 
One minute I feel fine another minute it’s a whole other me. 
Angry, or bitter, frustrated or just angry. 

Being in my 30s cant be menopause. 
I laugh. 
Still it daunts me, Depression. 
Could it be that. 
I have heard of the phrase. 
Might just be. 
I should talk to someone about it. 
No ppl will think Im crazy its surely not what I want . 
Conclusions. 
More questions. 
Doubts. 
Judgements. 
Those looks. 
Those comments. 
It would become too much. 
But so many brave ppl have scared their struggles. 
The problem is automatically the people in your life is attacked which isn’t fair. 
I want to be a inspiration. 
Not the problem. 
I want to be the voice not the sound.
 I don’t wanna complain, but I wanna be happy. 
How do I find my way again. 
To the carefree me. 
To the happy me. 
Time will tell.
 Wait and watch. 
That all we all can do
The journey is a new one, but needed. 
The path is a new one, but taken. 
Don’t doubt who you are.
I told my friend. 
Find your way.
Dont give up.

Ive known people who suffered from depression. I think we all go through some phases of it. But to be in such a long and tough jounry it always helps to be there for your friends or anyone you know struggling with it.  I am just glad I have been able to help them. I am sure you can help someone in your life. Take the time out to find out how your loved ones are doing. Do it now, today. Don’t schedule it, just  follow your impulse. If you see the signs of depression make sure to get them the support they need.
