Hey there, lovely ladies! Grab your cup of coffee (or yerba mate, in my case), sit back, and join me on a journey of manifestation in a new country as a photographer. Life has brought me to the vibrant shores of Dubai, nestled near the captivating Kate surf. Let’s dive into my morning routine, where I manifest my dreams, one day at a time.

1. Rise & Shine, Manifesting Style

As the sunrise paints the sky with stunning hues, I wake up and begin my day with meditation. Finding solace in the stillness of the morning, I tune into my inner self and connect with the universe. It’s a gentle reminder that my dreams are within reach, and that I possess the power to make them reality.

To enhance the manifestation process, I love dabbling in “Designing Your Life” exercises from To Be Magnetic. It’s like creating a vision board for my soul, where possibilities know no bounds. Trust me, ladies, this practice truly ignites that fiery passion within!

2. Yerba Mate: My Energizing Elixir

Move over, coffee enthusiasts! As I sip on my comforting cup of yerba mate, a delightful Argentinean herbal infusion, I feel an added sense of clarity and focus. Consider it my secret weapon for embracing the day as a photographer. This invigorating elixir nourishes my creative spirit, fuelling my passion and infusing me with its remarkable benefits.

3. Journaling: Gratitude, My Superpower

Ah, the power of pen and paper! Journaling allows me to pour out my thoughts, dreams, and aspirations onto the pages. Each morning, I express my gratitude for all the incredible blessings life has gifted me. By acknowledging the beauty and abundance that surrounds me, I pave the way for even more wonderful experiences to unfold.

4. Refreshing Shower & a Dash of Morning Fitness

Who doesn’t love a good morning shower? As I let the water cleanse my body and invigorate my senses, I gather my strength for the day ahead. And here’s a little secret—I’m starting to incorporate running into my morning routine! Not only does it keep me fit, but it also clears my mind, allowing creative ideas to flow freely. Plus, who can resist the rush of endorphins that come with a good run?

5. The Art of Website Revamp

Before diving into work, I take a moment to check on my beloved website. It’s here that I showcase my photography, capturing bits and pieces of this beautiful life I’m manifesting. With excitement bubbling within, I allow myself to explore new ideas, improve my online presence, and create a captivating digital space that reflects my journey and passions as a photographer.

So, there you have it, my dear friends—a glimpse into my morning routine as a woman manifesting her dream life in a new country. Through meditation, yerba mate sips, journaling, a refreshing shower, and a touch of website revamping, I embrace every opportunity life throws my way.

Remember, ladies, your dreams are worth pursuing. Manifest them, believe in them with unwavering certainty, and watch as the universe conspires to make them come true. Cheers to a life filled with endless possibilities and mornings that lay the foundation for greatness.

Stay inspired, embrace the magic, and keep manifesting!

With love,
