Do you know when to stop & relax?
Are you setting yourself goals that you NEED TO do before taking some time off?
You need to know when to stop.⚠️
There will always be something to do but you need to learn to put it aside undone and have some time for yourself. You won’t work well without rest anyway!
It was hard for me, some time ago, to stop working and start chilling when I didn’t finish what I was doing. I kept going and going until it was done.
Today I set myself times when I start relax time and when it comes I just leave work and go rest. For example, I work till 9pm at my music agency or blog stuff (or doing chores at home or anything else) and whatever I manage to do till that time will be done and the rest I’ll do the next day. The world won’t end if I do the laundry the next day or send some emails the following morning. 🤷🏼♀️
You need to proritise your relax time too. Don’t push it further and further. Just put work/chores/anything else aside and chill. You’ll get back to that tomorrow.
It’s not only about small one-day activities. We keep setting new goals one after another after another. We succeeded in one thing, we got to our finish line and we want more and more and we keep pushing our finish line further and further instead of appreciating what we’ve achieved in the 1st place.🤷🏼♀️
Don’t run forward. Stop and rest from time to time. Celebrate your successes, enjoy what you achieved, have some rest and then set new goals.😘 —

How do you feel about Mondays?
Do you hate them? Do you get up unhappy? Are you counting days down to Friday?
If you feel unhappy Monday to Friday and you live only for the weekends there is something seriously wrong. 💔
Weekdays take 5/7 of a week (duuuh 😅) and so days from Monday to Friday, workdays, take 5/7th of your life. That is over 70%! Do you want to be unhappy 70% of your life? 💔
If you really can’t stand workdays and you’re only happy during the weekend then you need to make a BIG CHANGE. Either with your attitude, hobbies or simply change your job if that’s what makes you so miserable.🤷🏼♀️
Try to do some fun stuff in the evenings of workdays too. You can go to a cinema on a Tuesday after work, you can meet with a friend on a Wednesday and go bowling on a Thursday. Whatever makes you happy, do it during weekdays too!
It is finally summer time so you can take nice walks, go on a bike ride or go geocaching with a friend (if you don’t know what Geocaching is go to my stories highlights and watch „Ideas for FUN” part. I’m going to put some ideas for fundays in that section from time to time so you can use it during weekdays too!) everyday after work.
If that doesn’t help and your Mondays still suck cause you get up frustrated that you need to go to work…maybe just change it? 🤷🏼♀️ Try doing what you like. Ideally follow your passion and make it your job but if that’s impossible (although I believe that with hard work it never is 💪) try to think what you like doing and match it with some workplace.
Try googling if your city council has a work advisor that can sit down with you, talk to you, find out what you like and help you find a job that you’d like going to. I know my city has a whole bunch of people who do that so perhaps there is something similiar in your city too.
Seriously, life is not worth living if you’re unhappy most of the time. Try and make your job likable. Try changing something so that you’d wake up on Monday with a smile! 😊
Do you still have an inner-kid inside you?
Being an adult is extremely hard and stressful. Do you remember how easy and cool it was to be a child? To play all they? To not worry about anything? To be reckless and happy?
Maybe we can take a break from being a stiff formal adult from time to time?
I’m not saying loose it all and start a reckless irresponsible life but maybe we could have a day to just be a kid again? To just play, have fun and not worry about anything? I think we should! 😊
As it is International Children’s Day today (we celebrated it last weekend in Poland) let loose and have fun! Stop worrying, stop planning, stop organizing and scheming. All your duties can wait, all your problems will wait too. Just take a day off and let your inner kid out! 🤗🤗🤗
What is freedom to you?
Please read till the end.
Yesterday was 30th anniversary of 1st free election in Poland after WWII. Anniversary of that historic day that changed everything. Events that actually started whole movement in Europe (Czech Republic and Germany were next).
June 4th 1989 was when Communism ended in Poland. It was the day when we gained freedom again.
I was standing at a concert held due to this anniversary yesterday (check on my stories) and heard elders talking about that day. We were shown news and documentaries of what 80s looked like in Poland. It was times of Martial Law here in 1981-1983. There were plenty strikes then (it all actually started in my city Gdańsk), people were fighting for freedom. My parents told me many times how awful those times were. How they couldn’t go and buy anything they wanted in a store (there was food rationing, every family could buy certain amount of bread, potatoes, toilet paper, soap etc. per month), how they couldn’t leave house and walk on the streets in the evenings, how they couldn’t talk openly about politics or even use word „freedom”!, how media couldn’t write the truth but only what the government told them to print/say on the news…
I was born 2 years after we gained freedom again and those horrible times ended. My brothers were 6-7 years old then though. They had few toys, hardly had any clothes. Can you imagine that?
So I was standing at this concert yesterday and was thinking how lucky I am to live now, in those better times. Can you imagine not being able to say what you think? To be forced to keep spreading lies? To be punished for saying what you feel? To not be FREE?
What is freedom to you? Because being able to say what we want, to do what we want, to buy what we want is freedom to me. And all those people, including my parents, my aunts, uncles and young brothers didn’t have that then.
I am so grateful that I am able to do all those things nowadays. I am so grateful to be able to travel (Polish people couldn’t go abroad during Martian Law!). I am so grateful for FREEDOM.
Sadly not all people around the world have that.
Are you following your dreams?
What does have to happen to make you start going for it?
Are you waiting for the right time?
There never will be. There’s always going to be something on the way, some obstacle but you need to overcome it and just get to work 💪
Are you waiting for something to change so you can start? Stop waiting. Don’t wait for some change, be that change ❗ The world and your life don’t change on their own, you have the power to change them.
Are you waiting for a sign from the Universe that you should get to work? There you have it. I am giving you that sign. 💫
Stop creating excuses. ⚠️
You’ll always find a reason not to do it but that’s not the point.
Just get up and start following your dreams.
You can do it. 💪

Why do people give up⁉️
Is it because they are not good enough? Because they are not capable of achieving the goal?
You are good enough and you CAN achieve the goal! 💯
When it comes to setting goals and following dreams people tend to be very impatient and want results right away. They give up because they haven’t reached their goal in a week or a month. Not that fast! „Rome wasn’t built in a day”, they say. Be patient and keep going! Don’t give up! 🙏
Also, when going after a dream people tend to look ahead. They keep looking how much road they have left to reach the finish line 🏁 instead of looking back once in a while and appreciating how far they’ve come already! Do it! Look back! ⏮
When e.g. you are trying to lose 10kg and after a month you’ve got still 7 more kg to lose, don’t give up! It means you’ve lost 3kg! Congratulate yourself and keep going! (Also, it is not possible to lose 10kg in a month in a healthy way 😉).
OR you’re trying to build a popular blog or an account here on ig and after couple months you’ve got only 20% of what you wanted. Don’t give up! Keep pushing! And look what you’ve got already! I, for example, thought Smiley Society will be way bigger after 6 months (has it been that long already?! 😅) but I’ve got 1800 of you here and when I try to imagine 1800 in a room and me talking to them…that’s a lot of people! 😅
Do you see what I mean? When going after a dream don’t just look forward and look out for the finish line. Look back and see if you can see START. You have passed it which means you are making progres! 📈
You’ll get where you want, you just need to be persistent and patient!
I believe in you! 🙏💫
