Apply for a job. 

Today my goal was to continue my job search research which I did.

I hope your job hunting went too well sister. I didn't realise I had so much to offer after seeing different types of businesses listed in the Yellow Pages directory. Many of my hidden skills have just come out e.g. my Diploma in I.T for computer jobs, Diploma in Psychology (including childhood psychology) from nannies to working in funeral homes, Arts Management degree for working in art and auction houses to market research etc. I hope this gives you some inspiration to expand your horizons by realising all the skills and experiences you may have sister.

I wonder what books you are reading

A relative gave me a book for my birthday last year (and I haven't finished reading it yet) so I decided to read her book first. :blush: It's called The Little Book of Hygge (pronounced HOO-GA) Danish Secrets to Happy Living.

I have seen that book and a related book about Hygge Danish culture at my local bookshop. I wanted to buy it.

See if you can find the book in a library. No need to spend money on a book when you can find it (or a similar one) for free. :)

@Hameedeh @Murtaza1

Excellent read. This quote from the book defines it perfectly:

"When we hygger, we frame the moment, give it our full attention, savour and hold it, in an awareness that the moment will pass. We feel how one moment will become layered onto the next, past and present mingled together - everything falling into place, into one accord".

There is so much to takeaway from this book and the concept of hygge. It truly changes one's perspective of the the world and it teaches one to value each and every moment in your life. Basically, it endorses the age-old concepts of 'less is more' and 'live in the moment'. Do let us know what you think after you've read it.

Thank you for the quote. As a style Hygger reminds me of Scandinavian style interior design where things are calm and kept to the minimum with bright white light. It expresses the beauty of Northern European countries fresh north sea winds with peace and serenity of open landscape. I relate to it because I was born in Belgium and grew up there on the coast.

Sure I will try and find the book at my local library, no doubt British Library should definetly have it at least and let you know what I think of it.

I mowed the lawn for a half hour, and left a section incomplete. I'm having a really hard time finding the motivation to go back out and finish it. 

Also, I dug up a bunch of bamboo shoots, so another goal today is to trim, prepare, and can some bamboo shoots. It's terribly labor intensive for a low nutrient food, but I guess it's worth it since one of my people likes them. I might look into the feasibility of making craft paper from the "skin". I have a friend who scrapbooks and makes her own paper. I suppose talking with her would be a fun and pleasant third goal for today, and can be used as motivation for me to finish the first two.

My goal today is to finalize my daily routine/schedule and implement it in the following days and week. 

I just moved back home after 19 years, praise be to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) the ever merciful for allowing it, and my day to day has been all wonky. 

Nothing big or exciting, but something I am pretty excited about.
