Three days and six castles 🏰 into our trip and I’ve fallen in love with Ireland!💕 Today’s itinerary had three castles on it and we ended up seeing four. 😍 I absolutely LOVE the history and the beauty of this country. 💚
Rock of Cashel • Blarney Castle •
Carrickfergus Castle • Dunluce Castle • The Rock of Dunamase • Unnamed Castle
I’ve been listening to @msrachelhollis RISE podcast, and the episode with @jenhatmaker really resonated with me this morning (yes, it’s episode 1, and yes, I listen to podcasts out of order 🤣).
One of Jen’s sayings is “off the beam”, like the balance beam in gymnastics. If there are too many tricks on your beam, you’ll fall. So you have to decide which tricks are just not for you, or which tricks are not for you right now. Maybe you’re like me and you’re trying to juggle a full-time job, your side hustle which is actually your true passion, and an extra job to try to fund the side hustle. In addition to that you’re trying to make healthier choices, learn from others in your industry, save for your future, spend more time on yourself…the list goes on and on 😬. ❀
The truth is, unless you’re superhuman and you just don’t need sleep, or you can work as fast as the Flash, you won’t be able to accomplish all of those things every day. For me, I can’t show up and be a good partner to my man (@phreakphotog, go check him out!) if I’m burnt out and exhausted from everything else I’m doing. And he’s one of the very few things on my beam that is immovable. Everything else can go #offthebeam for a day or two, or longer if it needs to. As long as I am being a good partner, the rest can wait. My business won’t go under if I don’t post on Instagram or Pinterest for one day. The world won’t end if I don’t get my reading time. ❀ So, as Jen recommends, sit down and make a list. A list of all the things that are going on in your life (or maybe things you’ve considered doing but haven’t yet), that you can leave #offthebeam. Let me know what some of those things are below! 👇🏼
So my DNA results came back today and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the results. I am 84% west Asian / mizrahi iranian jewish. 4,8 % central Asian (probably descendants of djengis khan 😕) 4,6% south Asian (India) what really did surprised me was that I only was 0,9% middle eastern (northern African/Arab) BUT surprise surprise I am 5,7% European I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING! 😱🤗 what the heck! I heard that there was supposedly a Russian dude who was supposedly my great great grandfather or something but I think he was just a drunk Irish guy 😂 lost in the middle of Iran 😂 I’m 5,7% Irish, Scottish or welsh. This is utterly and totally crazy. Now I understand why I love everything British (Barneby, ginger guys, Beatles, Brit-pop, indie and gin I freaking love gin 😂 #myheritage #dna #kissmeimirish #whosmyirishancestors
Today is one of those days that's going kinda slow, but I'm enjoying every minute of it. 💙
Hi I'm Tuğçe and sometimes I like to brood 🙋♀️
With Instagram killing my drafts and so my instalife, and migraine killing my brain and so my real life, I've had a trying couple of days. But, look, it happens. Not-so-ideal things in life will keep coming from the most unexpected places and knock you off the course sometimes 🤷 No bother, spend a couple of days wallowing in your sorrow and get back up and about. Nothing wrong with some sadness and overthinking - actually I find the best motivation in those times. Put no shame in some self-doubt - doubt makes you question things, it makes you appreciate others and yourself, weed out the ones that are a drain and finally it helps you improve and find alternative solutions. What a life would it be, in boring contentment and hence no drive Just make sure to have a mechanism in place to kick you back up and you're grand! 💕 #kissmeimirish
