Good morning from gorgeous Costa Rica!! ☀️ For those that don’t know I am joining one of the companies I teach Yoga for @royalpigeonyoga on a beautiful 4 day Yoga retreat in Tamarindo. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach alongside @jaclynnkay and joining a group of such awesome women to explore this amazing country!! After the retreat @brjacobsart and @l_katzy will join me for some jungle and animal adventure time! I’ll be updating my Yoga insta @maeyoushine_yoga along the week as well ☺️
This May, I intend to ski across Greenland for a month from West to East. If I succeed I will be the first Egyptian and Arab to accomplish this challenge. Greenland is the second largest ice sheet in the world and it falls entirely within the Arctic Circle. Total distance traveled is going to be 600 kilometers through one of the harshest environments on Earth, where the temperature drop to 40 degrees below zero and the wind speed can pick up to 120 kilometers per hour. Before, I was the first Egyptian and Arab to dive under the Antarctic Ice Sheet and to dive in all the Earth oceans including the frozen southern and northern ones. If you wish to sponsor this adventure please contact me on my Facebook page or through the following email.

Sometimes we mistake that being trapped in your own nasty thoughts as a dead-end. I have been living with this mental barrier for almost 5 years but recently I realized that the only way to overcome it is by overcoming my own insecurities and pessimism. It's hard. I see people moving forward and doing excellent in their undertakings but what I should not do is start comparing my own shortcomings with their highlights.
Poetry and writing have been my passion since I started reading, and I'm not even lying. But I'm not good at language and sophisticated words like poets today. Like the old soul trapped in a young body that I am, I learned poetry through old and classic poems and I've developed simple style for myself. But whenever I read other people's works, I get disheartened because I can never be as good, as modern and as sophisticated as them. I can never produce a work that is uncopiable by others. I can never give birth to my own distinct voice. When I first realized this, I became uninspired for 5 years. And today I find myself so unhappy for leaving my passion for so long instead of just accepting my own limitation. Instead of shutting up the external voices that plant insecurity in my very impressionable brain.
Now I only want to write my own thoughts, I don't want to be skillful, talented, unique and popular. I would be content with a few strangers identifying and echoing with my thoughts. I want to know I'm not alone.
