Kids nowadays

Have you heard phrase „ahh kids these days…”? 🤔 I keep hearing (mainly from people my age so 25-35) that kids nowadays are lazy, that they are not independent 🤷‍♀️, that they are less intelligent because they read less and „only sit on their phones”, that they are rude… I keep hearing that there’s no hope in younger generations and I couldn’t agree less!👎

First of all, if a kid is rude, doesn’t respect older people then it’s a result of bad parenting and our/my generation shouldn’t complain on younger ones as we are the ones responsible for them and making sure that they’re well-bred 😉.

Second of all, I don’t agree that they’re ruse, less intelligent or any of that anyway! Couple weeks ago I was on a tram on my way to work and an old lady asked a teenage boy for help finding the store she needed. Not only he googled the closest store in the area but he actually got off the tram with her and showed her how to get to that place 🙏. Another time I saw a young boy helping a woman out with a stroller on stairs while plenty older man (same age as the woman) were passing by indifferently 🙄.

At work I have 5 girls in their 20s in my team and they are very willing to work, keen on learning new things and I’d never say that they’re lazy 😉.

And as for intelligence – I keep reading articles that young students invented some new machine that will translate sign language live into any other language, other young student who work on a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and they’re getting closer and closer, other ones who do a lot for ecology…😃 Honestly, there are plenty examples of talented and brilliant young people who are smarter than some of us.

So lets not make assumptions on couple examples (there are different kind of people in every generation), lets not label people and lets not create stereotypes that aren’t true. We should all complain less and try to see what’s best in every human being 🤗.

4 Magical phrases

Am I out of date? Or am I too sensitive? 🤔
:::
I remember when I was a kid my parents taught me 4 magical words/phrases: „good morning”, „sorry”, „please” and „thank you”. Do you know these? I’m sure you do. But do you use them? 😉
:::
I’m not a kid anymore yet those are still basic phrases for me and I use them constantly.
I walk into an elevator or pass my neighbours in the neighbourhood and I always say „Good morning” no matter if I like this person, no matter if I know this person 🤷‍♀️. And what do I get? Nothing.🙄
:::
I do an extra job for somebody at work or spend my time helping somebody and what do I get? Nothing.🙄
:::
I’ve been waiting for somebody who didn’t show up on time or I wasted my time for somebody who didn’t even care and what do I get? Nothing.🙄
:::
Are words „good morning”, „thank you”, „sorry” out of date? Is it not ‘cool’ to say those words? I honestly don’t get it.😳
:::
For me there is one simple value that connects all those phrases and the fact if you use it or not – respect towards other people 👊.
:::
If I say „good morning” to somebody and he/she doesn’t reply – that’s lack of respect for me.😟
If I do something for somebody and he/she won’t even thank me – that’s lack of respect for me.😟
If I waste my time for somebody and don’t hear simple „sorry” – that’s lack of respect for me.😟
:::
Of course it doesn’t apply to everyboody (thank God) but there are more and more those kind of situations and it really upsets me 😔.
:::
Like Keanu Reeves once said „”I don’t want to be part of a world, where being kind is a weakness.”
:::
You don’t have to like everybody, you don’t have to agree with everybody but PLEASE lets treat each other with respect 🙏. Lets bring good old phrases ‘good morning’, ‘sorry’, ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ back to everyday life. What do you say?

P.s. I’m back 😎

Healthy egoism vs pure egoism

Nowadays we all talk more and more about self-egoism 🤔. That it’s good to put yourself first sometimes, that we should spend some time with ourselves as a self-care practice 🙏. But, as with everything else, we need to remember about healthy balance and we need to learn to differ healthy egoism from pure egoism 😉.
:::
➡️ You can say ‘no’ to your friends when they’re inviting you to a party because you want to spend some time with yourself. That’s ok👍. But when your friends need you and you say ‘no’ to them because you’re going to a party – that’s not ok 👎.
:::
➡️ You can focus on yourself and ask your family to give you some time alone because you want to work on your passions. That’s ok 👍. But when your family needs you, when you have some important family activities and you ignore them/miss the meeting because you want to work on your passions – that’s not ok 👎.
:::
➡️ You can spend money on yourself, invest in your projects or buy some new clothes when nobody else in your family has bigger needs. That’s ok 👍. But when you spend money on new clothes for yourself and skimp on a gift for your close one and/or give them nothing when they always give you gifts – that’s not ok 👎.
:::
Remember, we need to make sure there’s healthy balance in everything ⚖️. It’s good to focus on yourself, it’s good to spend time on your own but not when by doing that you neglect your closest family or friends 😉.

I’ll be happy when…

I have started new (and probably biggest yet) challenge on my Instagram! 🤩 It’s about following dreams! I’m one of those people who always encourage you to dream big and follow those dreams! I’ll be always rooting for you to work hard on reaching your goal 💪.
:::
BUT!
Setting goals and dreaming big is amazing and I am all for it but you need to learn to be happy during the process of following dreams, to be happy on your path, not only at the finish line ☺️.
:::
You can’t get stuck on „I’ll be happy when…” syndrome.
➡️ „I’ll be happy when I finally manage to get a new job and quit current one.”
➡️ „I’ll be happy when I finally move to a bigger house.”
➡️ „I’ll be happy when I succeed and when my company gets 1000 clients.”
:::
Do you see what’s wrong with those sentences? You’re blocking your own happiness! 😔 Thinking that you’ll be happy when you succeed you subconsciously tell yourself to be unhappy now 😬. What if it takes several years for you to achieve your goal? And what if it doesn’t work out and you won’t reach that particular goal (sometimes it just doesn’t happen, sometimes you miss your opportunity, run out of time etc)? Will you never be happy then? 😔
:::
Appreciate all the steps inbetween! There’s so many more steps to be happy about rather than just the final one 🏁. E.g. if your goal is to get 1000 clients you still get a milestone when you get the 1st one! 🤩 That’s a huge thing to celebrate! Somebody liked and bought your product/service! And when you get to 100 clients – woah, that’s a lot of people, you should be happy! 🤗 If your goal is to lose 15kg you should be happy about every single kilogram lots, you should be happy about yourself taking care of yourself, you should be happy now! 😊
:::
Remember, when setting your goal and following your dreams, make sure you’re happy all the way through the process!
