I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER TO COME

Hi every one, hope you are doing fine. Today in the mid morning I was sitting in the sofa browsing through many pictures I took during last summer, it's was a wonderful memory. Since I came to live in Paris in 2007, Summer is my favorite season. I grew up in a tropical wet and dry climate ( savanna climate) in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, typified by hot and humid weather throughout of the year. So spring is here, but I can't wait for summer  to come because sun and hot is my style. Here are my pictures to tell a story why I can't wait for summer to come.

Love for the ocean, having pleasure and relaxing on the beach, smell the ocean and looking at the sky.





 
In summer I like  to Travel to a new city, explore it's beauty, taste new food,shopping,accommodation away from home but it's fun and happy. Do you wanna know my next destination this summer? Don't go far, please.
 







 
Paris has best, beautiful and amazing parks and gardens and summer is the best time to enjoy the French Capital's green space.






 
Summer movies, I love watching movies for entertainment. I don't like busy schedule in summer, just taking a break and relax. Pop corn time let's enjoy the movie.




Outdoors activities for kids, in summer kids are off school because of summer break, so it's their time to enjoy  the summer break, so do I.





So summer must be fun, but take care of yourself  and be wise. Remember to party and stay alive. Don't drink and drive when you take a summer road trip, be careful where you put  your money, remember to check the local temperature daily not to overheat your baby this summer,  just to mention a few, in summer be careful out there, every summer has a story but our stories must be sweet not with  tragic endings. Wishing you best preparations for summer holidays.

Five Things I Do In My Spare Time

I have a lot of works to do everyday from morning to evening and life seems very busy, but I'm happy because I always get a spare time. Which I use it as a personal time  to rest and have fun by doing some of the activities I enjoy such as; go for walk, having a home spa, reading, cooking and preparing easy food, and spending few hours on the internet.

1. Go for a walk
 In my spare time I like going for a walk at the park with my family, walk helps me to exercise my muscles, get a fresh air, and improves my mood, which is good for my health.







2. Home spa
I take few minutes to have a beauty warm bath for resting and relaxing.I fill the tub with warm water, then I put the scented roses, light the candles  and  always play the soft music to refresh my mind. Then I soak myself  in the tube and try to breath in and out slowly, concentrating on the music that plays at the moment , smelling the roses, enjoying my drink, and thinking about wonderful events in my life. I stay in the water for about twenty minutes, after that I put on lounge wear and slippers then I get seated on the  sofa and sleep for a while. Don't forget home spa is cheap.




3. Reading
I enjoy reading books, I try to read almost everyday  during my spare time and  when I read I turn  off  computer and tv. Books have many benefits to me, I can get information on particular subject of my interest through books. Some books have got stories that are very amusing and therefore reduce stress, By reading books I can get new ideas, knowledge to apply in my life and understand things from other people's views and it also sets me free from boredom. 



4.Cooking
I like to eat and test different recipes, I like to cook and prepare something to eat when I have a free time just for entertainment, so in my spare time I only cook easy and quick food not complicated dishes. I like making salads both veggies and fruits salads, deserts or making a simple delicious meal, enough to have fun and enjoy.











5. Internet
As a part time blogger that's means I don't blog full time, I write and post when I have a free time, to share my knowledge, my hobbies etc, because I enjoy doing it. Besides that in my spare time I take the advantage to learn various free on line courses on the internet like public speaking course, photography, personal finance etc.







So what do you do in your spare time? You can share and tell us by leaving a comment, i like to hear how do you spend your free time, thanks.

A Journey Without a Goal

A Journey Without a Goal

By Leo Babauta

Photo by Eunice Mahundi

Nearly every activity we do has a purpose, a goal in mind.
We drive to get to work, to the store, to a class or party. We walk for fitness, or to get to a specific destination. We work to achieve something, to reach certain numbers. We workout to get healthier, to get a nicer body.
But what would happen if we gave up the goal?
What would a journey without a goal be like?
Imagine setting out for a walk with no particular purpose — you might go in one direction because there’s a nice explosion of flowers over there, but then explore a different direction when you see someone playing music, then go in another direction because you’re curious about what’s there.
No destination in mind. Nothing to achieve. Just curiosity, fun, not knowing.
What would it be like to work without a goal? You might write something for fun, because you want to get it out of you, without knowing what the effect of the writing would be. You would figure out the work as you go, without knowing what the finished product would look like.
What would it be like to live life without a fixed plan? Without knowing where you’ll be living in five years, or what you’ll be doing, or what you want to achieve?
I don’t know the answers, but I do know that I’ve been freer as I’ve learned to let go of goals, fixed plans, fixed destinations.

How to Flow

I’ve long been a planner and a goal setter, but I’ve been learning a different way over the last few years. It’s a radical shift in thinking and doing, to a freer-flowing mode of being.
How does it work? Well, to be honest, there’s no one way. But it goes a little something like this:
You wake up, excited about being alive. You wonder, “What do I feel like doing today?” You aren’t constrained to anything at this point, but the question is important.
So you get started, doing something you’re excited about, having fun doing it. Is that thing you’re doing a destination, a goal? Well, in some ways, yes, but it’s not fixed. There’s no set plan, and the destination doesn’t matter as much as the process, the journey.
You start, but you might shift as you go, depending on the flow of ideas, on working with others who might have ideas you didn’t foresee, on things that happen along the way. You couldn’t have predicted these things when you got started, so you have to adapt — no plan can anticipate all of this, no goal would be adequate to the task.
You might even completely shift, if something new comes up, if a new opportunity presents itself. You let go of your idea of what today was going to be, because these ideas of what should be are lightly held. They mean nothing, really, and the important thing is the flow.
You learn to be flexible instead of set. You learn to be good atchange and uncertainty, instead of fearing it.
As things arise, you adapt, and let go of your plans and goals. You move with the flow of water, with the changing landscape. You are free to do this because you don’t care where you end up — you just want to be present in your journey, be compassionate with each step, have fun each moment along the way. The destination becomes irrelevant.
No destination or goal matters if they are all good. Each step along the way, then, becomes the destination, and is exactly where you should be.
