Am I out of date?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Are words „good morning”, „thank you”, „sorry” out of date?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 😎
Imagine the most beautiful flower in the world 🌹.
Imagine it blooming 😍.
Imagine that this flower is one of a kind, there’s no one quite like it in the world 💫.
Do you see it in your mind? Is it beautiful? 🤗
Now imagine that thanks to this flower you can do anything you want. Because you’re the only one in the world that has it. It’s like an investment 📈. You have in your hands the most beautiful flower in the world 🌹!
And now imagine this beautiful, unique, precious flower losing its petals, losing its charm 🥀. That would be such a shame, right? The flower is not blooming and you’re losing on your investment 📉!
You NEED TO take care of this flower. You NEED TO water it 💦 to make it grow, you need to make sure it gets the sunlight 🌞. You need to do it all to see it bloom, to benefit from the flower later on as your investment.
It’s quite obvious right? Even a kid knows that you need to water a flower 🌹.
Everybody knows that you need to take care of something precious 🤩. So why won’t you? 🤷♀️ Because you know…the flower is you 😉.
Now read it again.
Lets be united, lets be kind to each other, lets do good 🙏

Being good is better than being rich.
Being worried is better than being indifferent.
Being humble is better than being cool.
Watching/reading news all the time is better than not knowing anything and talking nonsense.
Helping a little bit is better than not helping at all.
Being together, united is better than anything.

Are you fair to yourself? 🤔 Do you treat yourself well? 😉 Do you think of yourself in a nice way and understand your needs and problems? 🧐 Do you expect same results as others from yourself or are you over ambitious and tend to be critical of your achievements? 🙄
Imagine a situation: your friend calls and tells you that she failed at work and is afraid she’s gonna get fired 😰. What do you tell her? 🤔 You probably tell her not to worry, you try to assure her/him that she’s/he’s probably over dramatic and that it couldn’t have been that bad. You emphasise that she’s/he’s good at her/his job and that she/he won’t get fired 🤩
Now imagine same situation but you’re the one that failed at work 😉. What do you tell yourself? Do you blame yourself? 😶 Do you keep saying how bad you are? That you deserve getting fired? 😬 Do you tend to be overcritical to yourself? ☹
Is that what you would say to your friend? No! 🚫
Be a friend not only to others but to you as well! 🤗 Be supportive, understanding and loving ❤
How to challenge negative thoughts? 🤔
❌ „No one likes me.”
❌„It’s all my fault that she’s upset”
❌„I shouldn’t have made that mistake”
❌„I can’t do this”
❌„Why does this always happen to me?”
❌„Everyone is out to get me”.
✔„What is another possibility?”
✔„What would the people who care about me say?”
✔„What is the worst that could REALLY happen?”
✔„If my friend had this thought, what would I tell her?
✔„Can I be 100% sure this is true?”
✔„What is the best possible outcome?”
Remember, be a friend to yourself.
Be kind 😘
You’re not a robot. You’re a human, you make mistakes and that’s ok 😉
Love yourself 🙏.

Nothing will happen, nothing will work, nothing will change for better, you won’t be happier, you won’t like yourself more, you won’t accept yourself if you’re doing it because of hatred to yourself 😞
If you’re doing it out of fake intension, because you need to prove something to somebody, out of punishment or any negative reason, it simply won’t work 🤷🏼♀️. You won’t achieve your inner peace, you won’t be happy and/or anxiety free.
First of all you need to understand that you don’t need to be the best, you don’t need to be the fastest, the smartest, the richest ⚠️. In fact, I’m gonna break it to you 😉 – there’s always going to be someone smarter, someone prettier and someone more successful than you, it’s just how it works 🤷🏼♀️
You need to understand that you don’t HAVE TO do anything. Your attitude will change SO MUCH when you change the thinking and instead of thinking „I HAVE TO”, you’ll start thinking „I CAN” 🤗
I can change 😎
I can follow my dreams 😍
I can work hard and reach my goals 🤩
I can be better 💪
You don’t have to be the best but try to be better each day, to grow, to self-develop ⬆️. But do all of that while being good to yourself. Don’t force yourself to anything, it won’t work. You should want to do it, desire it. Not feel like you NEED TO or HAVE TO do it.
Remember, it’s all about the attitude 😘

P.S.2. I am doing 28 day Self-Love challenge at my Instagram – come join us!
⚠️7 things you should drop in 2021:
➡️ Living in the past 🙄– cut off 2020 for good and forget about it! 😅
➡️ Need to please everyone around you 😓 – not everyone deserves your time and effort, focus more on yourself! 🤗
➡️ Fear of change 😱 – change is good! Everybody is scared of something new, something unknown but it is so worth to take the risk usually and change e.g. your job, school or even a partner! 😜 If you feel that it’s a good change but you’re scared of it, go for it! 💪 It might be scary at first but in some time you’ll be glad you did it! 😚
➡️ Overthinking and excessive analyzing everything 🤯 – just stop! ❌ Don’t worry about problems that aren’t here, don’t analyze a situation that hasn’t happened yet! Stop imagining future problems and just focus on here & now 🙏
➡️ Cancelling time and/or plans for yourself in favour of people who won’t appreciate it 🙄 – if you have plans to stay at home in the evening in pjs and spend some quality time with yourself that’s ok 🤗! Don’t feel about it and don’t change those plans because of somebody else ❌
➡️Belief that you don’t have a purpose 😞 – yes you do! Bigger than you may think! 😚
➡️ Pretending to be someone you’re not 🤡 – just be yourself! Being yourself is trendy 😉
After tough 2020 (but don’t think about it now, it’s done, gone, we’re not living in the past 😅) we all need a propper self-love time! 🙏❤ Let’s make a whole month of it or even a year! 🤗
I’m doing a 28-day self-care challenge in February on my Instagram! 🤗 I’ll be giving tasks for you everyday in the morning to do something for yourself 🤗, I’ll be sharing even more recipes for homemade cosmetics 🧖♀️, uploading videos for relaxing/meditation sessions 🧘🏼♀️ and basically giving lots of love and encouraging you to take care of yourself! 😘
