I’ll be happy when…

I have started new (and probably biggest yet) challenge on my Instagram! 🤩 It’s about following dreams! I’m one of those people who always encourage you to dream big and follow those dreams! I’ll be always rooting for you to work hard on reaching your goal 💪.
:::
BUT!
Setting goals and dreaming big is amazing and I am all for it but you need to learn to be happy during the process of following dreams, to be happy on your path, not only at the finish line ☺️.
:::
You can’t get stuck on „I’ll be happy when…” syndrome.
➡️ „I’ll be happy when I finally manage to get a new job and quit current one.”
➡️ „I’ll be happy when I finally move to a bigger house.”
➡️ „I’ll be happy when I succeed and when my company gets 1000 clients.”
:::
Do you see what’s wrong with those sentences? You’re blocking your own happiness! 😔 Thinking that you’ll be happy when you succeed you subconsciously tell yourself to be unhappy now 😬. What if it takes several years for you to achieve your goal? And what if it doesn’t work out and you won’t reach that particular goal (sometimes it just doesn’t happen, sometimes you miss your opportunity, run out of time etc)? Will you never be happy then? 😔
:::
Appreciate all the steps inbetween! There’s so many more steps to be happy about rather than just the final one 🏁. E.g. if your goal is to get 1000 clients you still get a milestone when you get the 1st one! 🤩 That’s a huge thing to celebrate! Somebody liked and bought your product/service! And when you get to 100 clients – woah, that’s a lot of people, you should be happy! 🤗 If your goal is to lose 15kg you should be happy about every single kilogram lots, you should be happy about yourself taking care of yourself, you should be happy now! 😊
:::
Remember, when setting your goal and following your dreams, make sure you’re happy all the way through the process!

Nowadays

Do you know the saying „The appetite grows with what it feeds on.”? 🤔 The more people have, the more they want and this saddens me 😔. When will those people be happy? 🤷‍♀️ They’re chasing all the time to have more and more and in the end they never have enough, they are never happy. Isn’t is easier and better to appreciate what we have? 🤷‍♀️
To be grateful and to be happy all the time and even HAPPIER when you get something new, something better? 🤔
:::
There are people in Africa or South America who don’t have much, who struggle to survive and yet they are so much happier than people who have so much more. Because they appreciate what they have 🙏, because they are happy about the simple things like having food or a roof over their head. We should learn from them!
:::
I know we shouldn’t compare ourselves but in this case do it. Compare what you have to those poor people who hardly have anything. Compare the conditions you live in with wifi, shower 🚿, Netflix and/or Playstation 🎮 to the conditions they live in with a bucket of warm water to clean themselves with, with one wooden toy for all 6-7 children and no idea what wifi is (not everybody there lives like that of course but there are plenty people/houses who do).
:::
Do you still think that you don’t have much? That you live in bad conditions? 😶 Compare your life in which you are able to go to a cinema, to travel, to see your favourite band live with the life of e.g. Cubans who can’t travel (they don’t have passports), who hardly get any access to international movies 🎬 or music 🎵, who use their day off to stand in line for several hours in front of a grocery shop to get any food yet they still go out to the streets and laugh, dance and love life. Do you still think your life is so bad?
:::
There’s one simple rule to have a happy life – look down on those who have less when building gratitude 🙏 and look up for those who have more to build motivation 💪 and to get inspired. And never do it the other way round 😉.

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! ☺

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! 😉
