MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY – STEP 17: Summing up

It’s time to sum up this year 🤩 First of all, think what happened this year – if something bad happened draw conclussions, let it be a lesson 😎 and forget about it 😉
Now focus on all the good things that happened and take only that with you, only good emotions, good memories 😊
:::
Now in order to finish this year well and to know what you need to work on in the next year I want you to mark several segments of your life in 2021.
Mark from 1 to 10 how happy you are about your:
🔸️ career in 2021
🔸️ self-development in 2021
🔸️ relationships
🔸️ hobbies & passions
🔸️ finances
:::
Now looking at your marks think if you’re happy about your results. What do you need to work most on in 2022? 🤔
:::
Another excercise – draw a circle and mark how much time you spend each day on something – whole circle is 1 full day so if you e.g. work 8h a day mark 1/3rd of the circle as ‘WORK’. How mucy time daily do you spend working on your passions? 🧐 How much time do you spend on learning new things? How much time do you spend on working on your relationships so spending time with your family/friends? How much time do your spend working on your health so having a good nice sleep, working out/going for a walk etc.? 🤔
:::
Now look at the circle you’ve created and think if you’re happy about the results. What do you want to work on in 2022?
:::
Last one – take a piece of paper and write down (yes, write them down, this is a crucial step in planning your goals) what are your goals for 2022 📝
Now put it up above your desk, next to a mirror or somewhere where you can see it everyday! 😃

7 things I’ve learned about Mayans while being in Mexico

➡️ 1. There’s still plenty Mayans among Mexicans  and some of them will actually get a bit angry if you call them Mexican, not Mayan 😉.
➡️ 2. Mayans were VERY intelligent people who could meassure days, calendar and solar systems centuries ago just by observing the nature around them 🌹🌒🌓🌕🌖🌗🌙 and their calculations compared to  nowadays’ calendars were mistaken by only 6 seconds! 🤯
➡️ 3. Mayan calendar is very complicated, it is actually a combination of 3 different calendars, and each day had a special name in calendar and everyone got a name after the day they were born.
2012 actually wasn’t the end of Mayan calendar. Their whole calendar cycle lasts over 5000 years and 2012 was the end of 1st cycle 😉
➡️ 4. The ancient Mayans believed that the world was created on 11th August, 3114 BCE. The Mayan calendars start counting from that date.
➡️ 5. Do you know how to write number 10 in ancient Roman numbers? It’s ‘X’, right? 😃 5 is ‘V’ and so on. But how do you write ‘0’ in Roman numbers? 🤔 There is no sign for that because the concept of number ‘0’ was invented later by Mayans! 😃
➡️ 6. There are plenty words in modern language that were invented by Mayans. One of them is ‘chocolate’ 🍫– ‘chocolhaa’ in Mayan that means ‘bitter water’
➡️ 7. Mayans kind of invented soccer but the rules were quite different 😅 – you could hit the ball only with your hips, forearms or calves and you had to aim the ball to a stone hoop that was couple metres above the ground 😃

SELF-LOVE: Fooooood

SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
I think food is a big part of self-love 😋😅 not only eating delicious stuff makes your mood bettet but I find whole process of preparing a dish relaxing. You go into kitchen, turn your mind off and start creating something delicious out of seperate things 😍 It always find this whole process amazing how we take some seperate ingredients and when we mix them together we receive something amazing 🤤 Don’t you agree?
So today as a part of self-love not only eat something you love but create it yourself. Go into kitchen and get creative. Maybe you’ll think of some new dish? Or try some new recipe?

Communication

Do you know what’s key to good relationship?
Communication 😉
:::
And it’s not only about love relationships, it’s important to make any kind of relationship work – a friendship, a relation you have with your daughter, mom, neighbour, coworker. Anybody.
:::
We are ALL different. And nobody sits in your head, nobody reads your mind, believe me 😉. So when you don’t like something, when you need help with something you need to COMMUNICATE.
:::
Plenty woman (I used to be one of them) think that if they send „signals” to their partner he’ll know what she needs/means 😅 That if she says something between the lines about a movie she’d like to watch or talk about her friend’s new cosmetics he’ll instantly get the idea to take you to cinema to see that movie and he’ll buy those cosmetics for you 😅 No, this doesn’t work with men.
:::
Men and women work totally differently and so do our minds! You need to be loud and clear 😉
COMMUNICATE.
:::
It works like that with everybody. If you’re angry with your boss because he/she gives you so much work tell him/her politely (!) that you’re swamped and ask if he/she can maybe get one of your co-workers to help you, to divide some big task between 2-3 people, not just 1 🤷🏼‍♀️
TALK.
:::
If you’re frustrated with your friend because he keeps inviting you to places you don’t like or wants to do something you’re not fan of – tell him. He simply might not know that you don’t like it! I’m sure he doesn’t do it to make you angry, he’s just anaware of your negative feelings. Why? Because you’ve never told him that you e.g. don’t like bowling or eating at that Thai restaurant. 😉
LET HIM KNOW.
:::
We all need to talk more. Say what we think out loud. Don’t keep your thought or feelings to yourself. But remember, if it’s something negative think how to communicate it to your friend to not hurt his feelings 🙏. We should always be sincere and if you don’t like something you should say it but do it gently.

SELF-LOVE: Stay home

SELF-LOVE
Turn tv off, turn social media off (apart from @smileysociety of course 😉😂), stop listening to news and just relax.
What’s happening out there, is happening out there 🤷🏼‍♀️ and as it doesn’t concern you as long as you are at home 🏡.
Look at it as extra time at home to read a book you’ve always wanted to read, to watch a movie or tv shows everybody is telling you about 🎬, to take up some new hobby like decoupage or playing guitar 🎸, do yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️, do home fitness 💪 or do coloring like me 😁
I find it sooo relaxing 😍
What do you do these days?

Genesis of evil

I’ve been watching „Maleficent” recently (you know the movie? 🎬) and a thougth occured to me – are people originally good 😇or bad 😈? Or maybe neutral? When a person is born is he/she good and then becomes bad? Or is it bad straight away because of its fate or origin? 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
In the movie „Maleficent” (I know it’s a movie but still…got me thinking 🤷🏼‍♀️) it is shown that the fae played by Angelina Jolie was good and of pure heart ❤until she had that heart broken and been betrayed 💔. Kind of same story with „Joker” (have you seen it? Sooo good! 😍) – Arthur Fleck (played by Joaquin Phoenix) was a normal guy, bit of introvert but of good heart, he took care of his mother and wanted to become a famous comedian. But then it all changed. He had his heart broken by all this evil in the world and became Joker, a villain. 😈
:::
I think we are all good in the beginning but sometimes things go wrong and people become cynical, they don’t trust people and in the end they become bad 😞. There are so many stories and examples of e.g. rapers who do what they do because they’ve been hurt in their childhood 💔. Evil experiences/memories bring evil actions 😩.
:::
But we must not let it ❗. We need to fight with evil 👊. And whenever something bad happens, we need to stay good 🙏. As the Bible says: “Do Not Be Overcome by Evil, but Overcome Evil With Good.” 🤗
:::
When something bad happens do not look for vengeance 🚫. Stay good, be good. This is the only way to fight evil. 👊
:::
When our mayor Paweł Adamowicz was killed last year 💔 this is what his wife kept telling us, this is what our whole city kept repeating – to fight evil with good, to stay united 🤝.
:::
And that is the best way to do, believe me.
Just be good. 🙏
I believe there are more good people than bad ones in this world and we need to keep it this way 🙏
