One of my favorite pass times is popping in and out of shops in Bahrain. There are two reasons - one it provides relief from the blazing heat and two I love how every shop is the setup so differently to lure their buyers. These local shops nested along the main stretch of Bab Al-Bahrain make it for a great experience of art, food, traditional items and gifts.
Finished another good book. Drinking In America: Our Secret History by Susan Cheever.
In Drinking In America, bestselling author Susan Cheever chronicles our national love affair with liquor, taking a long time to thoughtful look at the way alcohol has change our nation's history. This is the often-overlooked story of how alcohol has shaped American events in the American character from the 17th to the 20th century. (From the inside cover leaf)
I found this book to informative, thought-provoking, and fair. I would give it a 4 out of 5 star rating.
In the past couple of years, I’ve been working on some goals. I have also recently decided on the undergrad that I will pursue: Behavioral and Biological Sciences (BBS) through U of M, Dearborn and plan to continue my education beyond my bachelors degree under the umbrella of mental health. 🧠👨🏼⚕️📚 In late October, I began participating in Zumba for my physical and mental well being. All the while, I’ve been doing some deep emotional work too. 🕉🕺🏼💃🏼 In the classes I have taken, I took two piano classes to improve my technique on the piano. Playing the piano has now become one of my hobbies and a place that I can express myself in one of my favorite art forms; music. 🎶
A lesson I have become more aware of through my practice is that, in life we will make mistakes, but the show not only must go on, but it will go own. That’s life.
Learn from your mistakes. Be kind and patient with yourself (and others). Give yourself the time you need to grow, and to learn. You’re worth it. ;-). 💟
