My lazy Sunday plans consist entirely of this book and this view.
It’s my first time reading The Handmaid’s Tale - and no, I haven’t watched the show. The word on the street (or my DMs) is that The Testaments is showing up at my house this week so I figured I’d better cram in preparation! (😘😘😘 @doubledaybooks )
Also, is there a better feeling than getting all your homework done on a Saturday so Sunday can be lazy?? I don’t think so ❤️ It’s been a decade since I’ve taken more than one grad class at a time, and two this semester is going to be ROUGH on top of work and kids and dogs and other family goodness. December will come though and given that I’ve never failed a class in my life, I’m sure I’ll survive 😉 and finally have my Master’s! Way fewer book reviews, though, I’m sure......

●بو دنیا فانی دیر فانی، بو دنیاده قالان هانی
داود اوغلو سلیمانی، تخت اوستوندن سالان دنیا ●سنین بهرهن یین کیم دیر؟ کیمینکی سن؟ ییهن کیم دیر
سنه دوغرو دییهن کیم دیر؟ یالان دنیا یالان دنیا... ○این دنیا فانی است، کیست که در این دنیا مانده باشد؟
همان دنیایی که سلیمان پسر داود را، از تخت به زیر انداخت. ○چه کس بهرهای از تو برده؟ مال چه کسی هستی؟ صاحبت کیست؟
کیست که به تو بگوید راست، ای دنیای دروغین...

Being a person who started her entrepreneurial journey while healing from Depression and Anxiety, I have learned so many valuable lessons on my way.
One of those learnings is that the road to healing from depression and deciding to take control of own career and become an entrepreneur are two different things, and yet the common thing about it is that it can sometimes lead you to have no or only a few friends.
Here are the two things that happened:
1. Being in & Healing from Depression:
A few years ago, there were these two sides of my personality. One was this chirpy and all the time happy girl. And there were days when I was this dull person. Sadly, my friends and people around me were habituated to see me as this HAPPY PERSON. And they did not like me on those sad days. And slowly I got this tag of being a "SAD PERSON". It was the time when I was healing from depression. And I found myself walking on the streets alone, having my food alone, and crying alone.
This left me with literally having only 3 friends. 2 of them were not even in the same city. And I was so much falling into the hands of depression again, that I closed my doors to these only 3 friends who really truly cared about me.
2. Being an Entrepreneur:
I started my business from the space of a lot of passion and determination to prove myself. And little did I realize that I was coming from the space of a lot of aggressive passion. Which led me to work for hours, on weekends, and being lost in the world of my own. 6 months into my business, and I realized that I had business connections. But I did not really have friends.
I was again standing Alone. And it hurt me.
And, this was the moment, instead of going into the victim mentality, I took a hard look at my own self again, I took a hard look at the way I was living & leading my life. And I realized that it wasn't the people, it was me who closed the doors. Because I did not like the tag of the "SAD Person". I did not like it when people told me that I can not really succeed in business for whatsoever reason. I did not like it when my friends asked me why do I keep going towards depression again.

A Memory from April 2012 living in Houston when you are being the sassy you! 🔥💃🔥 I had just launched my Devine Thoughts & Inspirations Blog page!
I was celebrating myself because I was finally accomplishing a MAJOR milestone of attacking my fears of coming out to let the world know and see all of my writing gifts! #DianaRoss
Sometimes, you just got to come out and forget about what other folks are going to think and say!

Me with makeup artist extraordinaire Caroline Murray who’s getting me ready for my cameo in “Operation: Clean Slate” an awesomely fun film which wrapped today.
@operationcleanslate is about four teens who, when their summer of freedom is threatened, hatch a plan to break into city hall and destroy their parking records. Spoiler alert: I don’t play one of the teens 😂
Seriously, it’s an exciting film and I was incredibly impressed with what I saw from director @jaysontherrien, screenwriter @ctothenetto, producer @kptkadaver, and their amazing team of talented cast and crew.
It’s the film that both my sister @lollydejonge and I have producer credits on (she’s the executive and I’m the associate and I’m not jealous, you are!) I plan to share more about this fantastic film in future posts.
Zimno i deszczowo pięknie! Nawet nie wiem jaki dzień tygodnia i która godzina, bo albo piszę albo czytam albo piję herbatę z imbirem i nie patrzę na zegarek. I już kolejny tydzień mam same piątki.
