Life is unpredictable and can change in a moment. No one can predict what will come next. These last few months, last year even, should teach us more to get better at appreciating the now. And also to teach us how to appreciate the smaller things in life. One of the main reasons I started this blog actually: to appreciate the little things… today I will take my bike and go for a ride. I really look forward to that. To feel the wind in my face and also feel the sun on my skin. We are lucky. Today is a sunny day!!! We really have proper April weather here where in a day we see all seasons: wind, hail, snow, rain, cloudy skies followed by blue sky and big white clouds revealing the sun- it is actually still there! It’s nice to see that in our world there is still consistency. Take deep breathes, look at nature today. A flower, a leaf, go for a walk or if you can and have a bicycle, take it for a spin. It will do you good just to get fresh air and to clear the mind. Take a beautiful photo of something unexpected outside. It will appear in your photo stream in a year and remind you of this day… a Saturday in April where you enjoyed the little thing in life. I so… recommend!!! Have the most fabulous of days!
A blank canvas… that is really what each day offers us. You are the author and decide what the day should be filled with. Mind over matters? Focus on feeling good this week. Take deep breathes. Do what makes you happy. The pace right now is different. Slow down- you too. We are in a big shift right now. Go with that flow. The affirmation is “I will focus on what makes me happy!” Do… slow down if you’ve been stressed, prepare for a calmer period. Reflect? Time doesn’t stop and every day is a day closer to the light! Have a great week- and truly focus on what makes you feel good. I so… recommend!
Yet another Monday. Life continues- time doesn’t stop for anyone. I hope you are all hanging in there? Many countries with so many different approaches in how to manage this situation. Just don’t forget that it will get better. We are resilient… and hopefully we will come out of this more humble and grateful than before. I think it’s fair to say that we have all faced (are facing) various degrees of losses. Just remember that what you do today, will serve you when the world has opened up a bit more. Please don’t forget that. I need to write this to myself as well…! The world awaits us!
Focus on that image of a more normal world as we know it and that it will be here soon again. Visualise how you want your life to be in 2-3 months time and use the time well. We are in the longest marathon sprint ever and right now in the final stretch. The goal post has changed many times, and it may change again! But we can continue…
This is a beautiful quote by Maya Angelou:
“You may not control the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
Continue this week with many positive thoughts and a “can do”attitude… you will feel so much better about it! I so… recommend! Take care… 😌🙏
Just some thoughts this Saturday… it’s hard at times to keep things normal as everything has changed so much. Who would have thought the world would look like it does today 18 months ago? For many of us our lives have changed dramatically. For some of us, maybe not as much?
Have you read any good books about personality traits? It is fascinating how we all are so different. Is it how we grow up or the environment or a combination of both? And most likely a mix of many more ingredients! I still believe in kindness. That is a very powerful tool that can be applied in so many different situations. Be kind and always think bigger!
“ Rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength”
Such a simple quote but so powerful. Be kind, be humble, be open… I so… recommend! Have a fantastic day!!!
Focus this week is to look forward. Yes it’s important to focus on the here and now and love every minute of it. But don’t forget how resilient we are as a species. Good and bad. Humans have a tendency of finding solutions to problems and evolve. We will get through this as well. As I’ve said before, no doubt the world will be a different one to just 14 months ago. Focus now and visualise yourself who, what and where you will be in 6-12 months time. With the Internet there are so many opportunities. Learn a new language, go on a virtual tour in Venice, train with a YouTube class, learn how to cook, improve your finances, take a course in something different. There are so many opportunities out there. Try to avoid too many negative media input. Unfortunately news have a tendency of focusing on the negative. Not so much on all the positive that is actually also happening and taking place right now.
“I will focus on what makes me happy!”
Be selective in what you consume… I so… recommend! Have a great week!!!
