Hello my readers! It is time to tell you what is going on with me and why I have not been posting any articles. By this post I am trying to encourage myself to be better and do better. Life can be a bitch sometimes. I am so lucky to have people who stand by my side, helping me get through every bump that gets in my way. Still, I need to deal with things all by my self, in my head. Feeling depressed, no motivation...name it. I got through so many feelings in a couple of past months. My mum moving out with my sister, tough school...It was just too much and I couldn't handle it. Today I am here to tell you that it is OK sometimes not to be OK. It is part of our lives. Everyone had tough times in there lives. The important thing is how that person dealed with it. The act. We need to inspire others, encourage people, help them. That is important. I want to share with you a few things that helped me and also a few things I need to work on. It is time to change things a little bit.
I need to:
1) BELIEVE IN MYSELF
This is a tough one. I always everything blame on myself. It is time to trust my guts and start to believe that I am good enough. That I can do whatever I want without questioning myself. It is totally normal to make many mistakes. We are human and we learn from every mistake we make. I have started reading this book called 'Playing Big' by Tara Mohr. I can tell you it is pretty inspiring.
2) SEE THE GOOD IN BAD (TURN NEGATIVITY INTO POSITIVITY)
I need to stop being pessimistic and start to see the good. I can tell you, it is hard. At least for me. Media always try to tell us how the world is a mess and than people start to believe that stuff.
3) FEAR CANNOT STOP ME
'Fear is our worst enemy' they say. And it is true. Now I can see that.
4) DO STUFF (KEEP MYSELF MOVING)
Yes. That is what I need to say on every adventure.
Like cup of tea, nice sunset, the sounds of nature...or just a song. You can follow my Summer 2016 Spotify playlist if you want.
6) BE KIND
To everyone, even though they do not behave very nice towards us.
7) READ MORE
This is so easy. I love to just dive into reading.
8) LOVE MORE
9) DANCE MORE
I miss dancing so much.
I stopped meditating and I think this is the main reason I have been feeling so down lately. A week ago I started doing yoga again and guys, yoga is a miracle.
It does not matter if in the forest or in the city. I am planning on trying to do gratitude walks. If you don't know what that means, I am going to shortly clarify this term to you. While you are on your walk, you just start saying outloud the things in your life that you are grateful for. Excuse my poor explaning skills. If you want to more about it there is loads of articles, for example this one.
12) KEEP THE CALENDAR/WEEKLY PLANNER UPDATED
It helps me to keep track of things I need to do. Without it I feel useless, like I am doing nothing with my life.
13) SPEND MORE TIME WITH FRIENDS
14) WORK WORK WORK
