Confidence!

You know what’s sexy?
Confidence!
And the more confident you are (= you see more good values and less bad ones in yourself) the happier you are! 🤗
So here’s an excercise to become more confident:
Think of 3 things you like about yourself (even better to ask somebody else to tell you what they like about you), write them down on a piece of paper and put that paper next to a mirror. Read it out loud in the morning while looking at your reflection, look at it while brushing your teeth, just get that inside your head! 😁
Then after a week write down 3 other things you like about yourself.
Keep repeating until you trully love yourself! 😊😘

Don’t buy time to spend it anyways

You know what I find really surprising and odd? We keep inventing those facilities, those machines that are supposed to get us more time yet we keep lacking it. We now have washing machines that do laundry for us yet we’re still in a hurry. We’ve got dishwashers that get dishes clean for us which normally took plenty time yet we still don’t have enough time for anything. We even got diet caterings (which I got addicted to this month) thanks  to whom we don’t have to cook or do grocery shopping.

We keep buying more time in order to keep loosing it doing something else.

Aren’t you tired of that rat race? Of constantly being in rush? Of running from one place to another with your tongue out? I sure am.

We live in great times when we have somany machines doing stuff for us, we live in times when we should have so much more time than our ancestors who had to do everything manually yet we still don’t have it. Many years ago people started escaping from nature into the city to find a better life yet now we run away from city into nature to catch a breath. Does it apply to you?

This needs to STOP.

We all need to slow down. And the easiest way is to start appreciating here & now. Don’t rush from one task to another, don’t take anything for granted and learn to make time. That’s right, sometimes it is not about having time but making time. If you have those machines running and doing laundry, dishes or dinner for you don’t use that time to get soaked into more work, use it with your loved ones, with your family, reading a good book or simply connecting to nature.

Of course it is convenient and helpful to use that extra time (while you have that laundry or anything else done for you by a machine) to do something else but don’t overuse it.

It is all about that healthy balance to be able to divide your time this way to both have some work done but also to have propper rest and to spend your free time nicely. I am a workaholic and tend to put loads of work/project on me but I never work past 9pm or on weekends. This is my time to rest, to reload, to connect with family, friends and nature or to travel around the world and enjoy its charm 🙂

Perfect time

Let me tell you something about most valuable currency in today’s world – time 🕛.
You’re probably running out of time, you never have enough of it etc but this post is about something else.
It is about waiting for the right time.
:::
You probably had many situations where you promised to yourself that you’ll start/change something but were waiting for that perfect moment? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Some new dream that you wanted to start following as soon as something else happens? You kept putting and putting some dreams/plans away because „that’s not the right time yet”?
:::
Well, the truth is the time will never be right/perfect but we just keep postponing some changes using „it’s not the right time” excuse because we are either scared of the changes or simply lazy 😉
:::
So stop waiting, start acting! 💪
Maybe some other things will happen/change and in a year you’ll wish you have started today. You’ll never know so just do it now! 😉

Control freak confession

I already said that but I’ll keep repeating it from time to time so that you remember it – you can’t control everything! 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
You can plan what you want 📅, you can make the most precise schedules 🗒, you can be excelent at time management 🕰 and you’ll still never predict everything, there always will be surprises and you need to be ready for them. ⚠️
:::
I am a control freak 😅 and I write all my projects, ideas and plans down in my calendar. I tried to plan everything, sometimes even couple months or a year ahead! 🙈 I had a plan for my 20s and my precise goals that I needed to achieve e.g. by the age of 25. The more plans didn’t work out, the more devastated and angry I was 😵. I even stopped realising how much other stuff I managed to achieve, I only saw those unrealized plans. This led me to having panic attacks.🤯 I started going to a therapist. It was not good.😬
:::
Remember, planning is good and I am all for it BUT you need to be ready that it can go wrong sometimes, that you might have some surprises and that some plans not only may delay but they may actually never happen. And that’s ok. 👍
:::
2018 was a year of big changes for me, not careerwise but with my relationship and with my stability. I got married 💒, we got and moved to our new nest 🏡, we went on a honeymoon 🏝. There was lots of work (with the wedding and apartment) but it was the best year of my life 🤗.
:::
2019 was supposed to be MY year, for my projects. I published a book in February 📖, I started this blog 📝 (I actually started it in November last year but it was quiet here for first 2 months) and I was supposed to start writing my 2nd novel ✏. Meanwhile we had many family issues, health issues and in the end I did maybe 30% of what I had planned with those projects. And that’s ok. 😉
:::
When such a situation appears you need to be ready to be flexible and to choose what’s more important. ⚠️ I still did a lot this year (+there are still 3 more months left!) and there will still be next year 😊

Past dreams

Remember what did you use to dream about? What were your goals once? 🤔
:::
Maybe you dreamed about a job you have now? Maybe you were trying to get a girl that is now your wife? Maybe you tried to buy that dream house that you call your home nowadays? Are you still happy about those things? Do you appreciate what you have? That you have what you dreamed of some time ago?
:::
People tend to forget to be happy about what they have. To be grateful for where they are.
You got your dreams! You won! 🤗
:::
Obviously once we get one thing we dream of another but don’t forget about the goals you’ve already achieved 🙏. Be happy about the job you got that you wanted so badly in the past, be happy about the girl of your dreams that is now by your side and be happy about every little dream you’ve accomplished!
Don’t take anything for granted ⚠️

Contradictory world

We live in weird times, don’t you think? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Times when everything is wrong and has it’s own haters. At least that’s how I feel.
▫️
I feel like whatever used to be good some time ago is now bad. I feel like we, as civilization, do circles when it comes to everyday rules. For example, 20-30 years ago people ate eggs and vegetables from their gardens/farms. It was all rural and eco 🍏🥦🌽🍅🥚. Then the technology moved on and somebody invented all this crap that we put into our food now to make vegetables last longer, be bigger, taste better, be more colorful etc etc. And it was hip. 🔝 People gave up on fresh food straight from farms and went for food made by big companies. „Because it tastes better!”, „Because it cheaper!” etc… And now we go back to point A. Fresh, healthy food is now on top, eating bio and eco stuff is trendy and food made by big companies is bad 👎. I feel like we keep saying that what we have is BAD and that we need something BETTER.
▫️
And it is not only about food. E.g. cosmetics too! There was a time when people used herbs and natural stuff to take care of their skin, then we had big companies make creams for us with all those chemicals inside that apparently made our skin more firm, glowing, younger looking and God knows what else. And now we are back to point A where the less chamicals cream has, the better. Obviously.
▫️
I feel like we no longer know what is good for us and what isn’t.🤷🏼‍♀️ There is such a a mix of various information on every subject that we don’t know what/who to listen to anymore 🤯.
▫️
Like some people say coconut oil is good for us and others are totally against it. Some specialists say silk is good for your hair and others say it isn’t. Some people say that motivating others and trying to make them feel better, to motivate them to reach out for their goals is great and some say that coaching is pure evil and nobody should listen to it.🤷🏼‍♀️
▫️
How do you find yourself in this hectic world nowadays? How should we react to all those contradictory opinions?

Getting up

YOU, not anybody else, decide in the morning what kind of a day it will be. 👊
It is you who wake up and set your mood on.👊
:::
Stop thinking „od damn, I woke up in a bad mood”. Who turned it on for you? You did it. You have full control over your mood and stop thinking otherwise. 🚫
:::
If you wake up feeling sad or tired just quickly think of some good things you have planned for that day. Try to learn to quickly find those things you can be excited about on that day. Maybe you have delicious dinner prepared? 😋 Or you’re meeting with your friend in the afternoon? 👬 Or it’s Friday and you’re so close to weekend? I get up excited even on Mondays as new week is always new challenges for me and I love that. 😉
:::
Believe me, your first thoughts in the morning and the attitude you put yourself in will have HUGE ⚠️ impact on the rest of the day so choose it wisely.
:::
Do you want to get up smilling and have a good day or do you want to start your day cranky and full of anger? It is YOUR CHOICE to make. 😉
