Relationships

Recently I’ve been thinking about people that I have in my life. I am one of those people that would like to keep in touch with all the people I’ve ever met – with people from primary school, college, from the time when I lived abroad, with people I met at some holidays or parties… but it’s just not possible.
:::
Building relationships and taking care of them takes time. You can work on a relationship for years and then lose it in 1 week/month. 💔
:::
So if you have somebody in your life that you’d want to have forever – take care of that person and of your relationship. Don’t let him/her go. 🙏
:::
Use this magical time now we have now and take care of the people you want to keep in your life – buy some small gift for them 🎁, send a Christmas card 🎄 or just call them with best wishes 💫
:::
We need to cherish good people that we have close to us and make them feel loved and appreciated 🙏

About me · positive

I’m…30!

I turned 30 last week. 😜
And it actually got me thinking about the origin of all of us celebrating birthday. Like what is a birthday exactly? It’s an anniversary of us being born 🥳 a celebration of the day we came to this world 🤩 quite beautiful! But for me, we should celebrate our life, our presence in this world everyday! 🤗
:::
How? Just living a positive life! By appretiating what we have 🤗, by noticing the good and positive things in our surroundings everyday 🥰, by being kind and positive towards others 😘.
:::
Do you agree? ☺

5 things you NEED TO remember

🔸️ Rest can be/is productive 🙏. Never feel bad about taking a break. You need it to reset your body, to rest and be more productive later on, to get new ideas and be more creative.
🔸️ Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness 🤝. Don’t work your a** off just to prove somebody you can do it by yourself, it’s not worth it. Simply ask for help when you need it and help others when they need it.
🔸️ You don’t have to have it all figured out. I’m almost 30 and I think I know what I want to do for the rest of my life yet it keeps changing every couple years and that’s fine 😅 I change my dreams whenever I find some new passion because.. :
🔸️ You’re allowed to change your mind. Whether it’s about your job, a city where you want to live and other big decisions as well as on each everyday step like saying you’re not gonna go to a party even though you RSVP’ed because you don’t feel like it 🤷‍♀️.
🔸️ You can keep as much of your private life to yourself as you want. Just because somebody else starts talking about his/her problems, his financial situation, family drama etc doesn’t mean that you have to be open about it as well 😉

Core beliefs

What are you main core beliefs? 🤔
For me it’s:
🔸️ Be kind – always treat others how you want to be treated, don’t judge another person, especially if you don’t know the whole story
🔸️ Think positive – positive vibes really attract positive mind = positive life. Learn to appreciate what you got, to be happy about the little things, learn to see something good in the world around you
🔸️ Follow your dreams – set your steps that you need to take to reach your goal and try doing something everyday to pursue those dreams. It doesn’t have to be big, just keep taking small steps and keep moving forward. Anything is possible with hard work (and maybe a little luck)!

Which one out of those 3 is most important to you?
Keep reading my posts and I’ll teach you how to take care of/practice all 3 core beliefs 🙏

Inner child

Don’t mind me asking but… how old are you? 🤔 Are you 20+? 30+? Older? If so, do you act for your age, are you mature and serious all the time? 🧐 You’re no longer a child so you have to be serious, responsible and definitely not spontaneus…. Wrooooong! 🚫👎🥱
:::
Age doesn’t define us! 😉 I know plenty men who are almost (or already) 40 and act like 20 and that is not a bad thing! 🤪 Of course you need to be responsible and, if the situation requires that, serious from time to time but so you should be crazy, fun and wild! 🙃
:::
I remember hearing a girl saying „I want to be a kid again, this was so much fun, now nothing is fun” once 🙄. Well… if this is what your life looks like then you made it this way!
:::
Be crazy 🤪, be spontanous 😎, be passionate 🥰, be wild 🥴 – this is how you create memories! 😃 This is how you make life beautiful, fun and happy!
:::
Go and dance in the rain 🌂, surprise your friend at his/her door with a bottle of wine 🍷 (even if he/she lives couple hours away), go to karaoke bar 🎤, play hide and seek 🤭, go to a cinema with a bag full of jellies to see a Disney movie 😜…. why not?
:::
If there are any activities you liked as a child and you wish you could keep doing them just…keep doing them! 😃 Don’t let age, or actually not the age itself but the society pressure to BEHAVE YOUR AGE 🙄, stop you! Do whatever you wish! 🥰
:::
I, for example, love being goofy with my husband and e.g. do funny faces 🤪 and voices or sing with high-pitched voice (our neighbours must hate us haha 🤣), I watch cartoons and I love it ❤, 90% of the time I want to be a businesswoman/boss babe/independent woman 💪 but 10% of the time I want to be spoiled, eat candy and watch silly romantic comedies 🤭 like a teenager… and that’s fine! 😀
:::
Just do whatever you want to do, be your true self! ☺

Appreciate your time

Do you appreciate your time? Do you value it? 🤔
:::
„Time is a currency you can only spend once” – remember about it! ⚠️
:::
There are plenty things that you can get back after losing it 😉 – any material thing of course but abstract things like relationship 💏, trust 🤝or confidence 💪 can be brought back to you too!
:::
Yet there are 2 things that you can’t get back once you lose it – health and time 😬. As much as with modern medicine and some cures you can get your health back in some cases, you will never get lost time back. 😔
:::
That’s why it is so important to choose wisely what you do with it but also to cherish your time, to appreciate the time you have for yourself 🙏.
:::
If you don’t feel like you belong somewhere (you’re bored and not learning anything at work 🤷‍♀️, you’re invisible and being ignored at a party 🙄, you’re pouring your heart out and not getting anything in return in a relationship 💔…) just drop it. Don’t waste your time on a job you dislike, on hobbies you’re not passionate about or on people who don’t care about you 😚.
:::
Cherish your time, this is the most expensive value/currency you’ve got 💰. Use it to spend it on something that matters to you, something that is important to you 😉.
:::
Also remember to save some time for yourself 🙏, to regenerate, to get your energy back. Stop putting others’ needs first – if you booked some time for yourself and somebody calls you asking for help or simply to spend some time with him/her just be open about your needs and say that you want and need to spend some time on your own ❤ (unless it’s really urgent and somebody really needs your help). There’s nothing bad about it! 😉
:::
Everybody needs and should have some me-time from time to time! This is the time where we truly relax, truly are ourselves. Respect that need and that time! 🙏

I am happy

You know when I trully realised that I’m happy? ☺ That I love my life? ❤ When I realised that I love all seasons!🥰
:::
I used to  be a really grumpy person, believe me 🙄, and couple years ago when you’d ask me what’s my favourite time of the year I’d say ‘none’. Because there was something bad in each season – too cold in winter 🥶, too hot in summer 🥵, too rainy in autumn ☔ and there’s be something wrong with spring too (I can’t even name now what would be wrong with spring haha! 😅).
:::
Then some time later I started to love spring 🌸 and summer ☀️ but autumn and winter were still kinda depressing for me.
:::
And this year, couple weeks ago actually, I realised that I’m excited about each season! 😊 I was really excited about spring when it came this year, about being able to have nice walks out, to watch flowers bloom etc. 🥰 Then I was really happy when summer came and we started taking even more walks, having some picnics out, lovely long evenings in our garden and I was kinda bumped to see it all end when September started but then I realised…oh my, oh my, it will be so beautiful now with all the leaves falling 🍂, with sweater weather, hot chocolate, sitting under a blanket… such a cozy and lovely time! ☺ And I’m excited about winter too! I hope that it will snow in Poland a lot too like it did last year! ☃️
:::
Because it is all about mindset and seeing what’s good about something and not focusing on disadvantages of it😉. And it works with everything! You can see only disadvantages in your partner, point out why he’s not like prince charming 🙄, or you can focus on his good qualities like how he treats you, how he takes care of you etc. Same with e.g. your work – you can hate it and be unhappy everyday when you need to go to work or you can decide to see positives in it – e.g. that you like people working with you, that you like how your boss takes you seriously, that you love new challenges in it etc. ☺
:::
It REALLY is your choice how you see the world and wether you’re happy or not! 😉

Talking on Internet

You know what drives me crazy lately? 🤬 People not responding on Internet 🙄.
:::
You write somebody a message, you inform about something, you may even ask about something and… you get nothing 🤷‍♀️. Nowadays you even see if somebody read your messange (on Messenger, Instagram or Whatssapp) yet some people still have no difficulty in leaving it on ‘read’. 🙄
How rude. 😬
:::
Imagine same situation face to face. You walk up to somebody, you ask him/her a question 🗨, he/she looks at you and walks away. Would you do it? 🤷‍♀️
:::
Online or offline, lets all respect each other 🤝, treat each other how you’d want to be treat it and act like you’d be acting if you’d be talking face to face.
:::
Also, I am so done with people who are ‘honest’ online yet are not able to say what they really feel/think when you see them face to face 🙄
:::
I am so done with people who get online to let their rage out 🤬 and all they do is criticizing other people in a really rude way (so-called haters).
:::
I am so done with people who are curagous and could talk you up when there’s a screen between you and would never do it ‘live’ 👎
:::
I am so done with fake people who act different in Internet and different face to face.
:::
Let’s all be real. 🙏
Let’s always remember that there’s a real human being on the other side of the screen. 🤗
:::
Please let’s all respect each other no matter if you’re standing next to each other or you’re talking via social media.
Be kind. 🙏

Confession pt.2

Continuing my last post…
Apart from gardening pastry cooking is also my new hobby. I love it how from couple seperate ingredients you can create something amazing, something delicious 😋
:::
While being focused & creative in the kitchen I forget about problems, about others things to do…I am present just here & now.
:::
I’ve done macaroons couple times now and I’m getting better and better at it and my next challenge will be red velvet cake pops – have you ever made it? Or macaroons? 😊😋
:::
I love creating stuff whether it is some DIY home decor or some jewelry or in the kitchen..
I feel that being creative truly calms my mind and makes me happy 😊
And there will be some special project about me being creative soon so stay tuned! 😀

You know that feeling when you’re working hard on something and it doesn’t work out? When you put loads of effort into something and don’t see results? 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
I put LOADS of time, work, effort and money even into @smileysociety. Last autumn I decided to work harder on this page, to take better pictures, to bring more interesting content in stories so I started creating quizes, DIY tutorials, regular healthy recipes etc to bring more interesting stuff. For you.
:::
Having a full-time job (and working even 10-13h a day sometimes) I spent my whole free time I had in autumn, winter and spring creating content for @smileysociety and…it got me nowhere 🤷🏼‍♀️😅
I gained very few followers, wasn’t shared on any sharing page etc 💔
:::
This is why I haven’t been so active here for last 2 months. I felt burntout and didn’t feel like working on this page anymore.
And so I found new hobby – gardening 🌱👩‍🌾.
:::
With gardedning it is 100% sure you’ll see results of your hard work and this makes me happy 🤗.
If you follow couple simple rules (plant your plants in good soil, water it, fertilize it etc) you’ll soon see your plants growing, your flowers blooming and maybe even some fruit 🍓🍊.
:::
Gardening makes me not only happy because I see results but also makes me calm, takes my problems away and lets me focus on here & now.
I need to water my new beautiful grass everyday for 15min and those 15min are probably most relaxing during whole day 🙏.
If you have a chance try gardening and see how it can heal a soul!
