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! 😉

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. 🙏

:::
This is why I often talk to you here about motivation, about hard work to make you follow your dreams!
But on the others hand I highly encourage and often talk about the need to rest, to practice self-care etc.
It’s all about that healthy balance!
