Yup, its still officially a holiday here in Dubai so here’s one of my favourite comedienne’s to keep you entertained!
Its officially the Eid holiday here so I’m continuing the weekend and chilling out! Hope everyone is enjoying their Eid celebrations and having fun with family and friends!
We’re celebrating Eid here in Dubai so its a great excuse for a night off! Here’s some gorgeous music to keep you going!
Eid Mubarak everyone!
As summer draws to a close its time to pause a little and reflect on how far we’ve come. For some people summer has been a time to reconnect with family and friends far away. Maybe its been a lazy time of beaches and barbecues and relaxation and for some of us in the UAE summer is really just a time to survive the heat and dust and humidity! Life here is really upside down – we long for the cooler winter days and as summer ends the barbecues get dusted off and party invites start coming in as we look forward to long balmy nights under a purple Arabian sky!
I love this time of year, there’s a real feeling of anticipation in the air. People are starting to return from holiday, energised and full of ideas and ready to make a difference.
This year even more than most as we are in the midst of Ramadan right now, and Ramadan, even if you’re not Muslim, is a time to slow down and reconnect with our spiritual side and as we celebrate the Eid festival with our friends in early September there’s a real feeling of a new year, a new beginning and a new energy.
So why not spend the last days of summer reconnecting with your purpose and reflecting on what’s working and not working in your life. Life is a learning process, we don’t always get it right first time – in fact if we do we’ve probably set our sights too low! The trick to success is to spot our mistakes early and correct them, but also to keep a sense of humour and enjoy our screw ups – after all, the bigger the screw up the bigger the learning!
Here’s some great advice from Richard Branson – he’s got to be one of the best examples of success and yet even he doesn’t always get it right!
