My first blog!

Hi everyone! Well, I am very new to this blogging society. I’ve read a lot of other’s blogs in my lifetime but when it came to owning one myself, it was an inner debate which I just surrendered to – eventually.

So, a little about me. My name is Sharlinie, Malaysian by birth and currently reside in the UK. I am a writer and currently on the verge of finishing my first book titled Courage, which I am going to publish next year – 2018. ( Celebrations on the cards!!! )

I wanted to get it published this year, ( I’ll just keep it short..)  but being a perfectionist, a book enthusiast, avid reader and with some wise editorial advice, I am perfecting my baby as it grows!

This website is about anything and everything. Sharing a lot of my travels, food and recipes, family traditions and customs of my birth country and adopted country.

So, please stay with me and feel at home while I type away my daily anecdote. You are always welcome to join me with a nice cup of hot tea or coffee and pen down your thoughts, opinions, feedbacks or even if it’s just to drop a – Hi!

Focus on Self.

Focus on your focal point. It’s okay to relax. It’s okay to slow down. Its not okay to quit! Why I started this the first place? For myself! We will face challenges and adversaries but we don’t get better and stronger by quitting on ourselves. It’s always the opposite and tougher decisions that makes our destiny. Stay focussed!

The Lyngen Alps And Blåvatnet (Blue Lake).

So it begins… another day and another adventure…

 

Somewhere wild and untouched, the trees grew recklessly on gravelled paths as I began my journey… first steps and many that followed as if I was on a walkabout.

The rockiest roads, I was not skipping my way through this one. It was well balanced beneath my feet. Like toddler’s first steps until I discovered the stream. The glacier flows all this way not just to fill my cup but my heart with the joy of transcendence.

 

The journey continues, for the best is yet to come…

This looked like a bad construction site! I climbed to rocky hills to get to the most beautiful sight.

Blåvatnet or Blue Lake named for ( can you take a guess…? ) being the bluest lake! So rich in minerals, the water that flows from the glacier. And freezing cold! That 4 kilometres walk was so worth it!

Meditation

What is Meditation? Meditation is an Action or Practice of the State of Mind.

What does this mean? Simply connecting our body and mind to synchronise with our surrounding towards better health and well-being.

There are many benefits to meditating.

Focus – It increases the levels of our focus throughout the day. This is because we have a clearer mind and a more positive attitude due to releasing negative energy while meditating.

Creativity – If our mind is clear from distractions, our body feels less fatigued because it not constantly fighting the urge to quit. This enables us to awaken our creative mind and improve our cognitive skills.

Progress – We are able to process information better, communicate and find solutions faster as our mind has reached a higher level.

Health – Our brain is supercharged with energies and vibrations while we meditate; we breathe a certain technique which is the right way, our heart rate is steady and blood circulation is improved.

Meditation has helped me overcome fear, stress, depression, fatigue and exhaustion.

First thing in the morning – meditate. Practice every day to keep your mind and body aligned with the universe. Feel the vibrations of Mother Earth. Focus. Relax. Breathe.

You will see things clearly.

Sit with your feet folded and rest your palm facing upwards on your thighs.

Everything around us is in rhythm with our soul. We are one with the universe.

Let go of the anger. Let go of the pain. Let go of the fears. Watch the stress disappear. Turn exhaustion and fatigue into the sole drive of your motivation.
Visualise everything that you want to happen the way it should. Realise it working and feel the miracle taking place. Accept the results.

Breathe in and Breathe out. Relax. Focus. Smile.

Stay blessed.  Namaste 🙏
