This week focus is on balance and finding strength. “We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same”. This is a great quote I certainly need to remind myself of. These last few months have been hard and made myself quite vulnerable. However in vulnerability, we can also find strength. A bit like a Phoenix. See yourself as strong, set goals that make you happy and a better person. The world is always in need of kind and good people. Make sure you remain one of the kind ones… I so… recommend!!!
Right now life feels hard and complicated. Wanting to be able to do more- but many of us are so restricted. Most of us wanting this to just end… it’s so important to show kindness right now. Having been on the receiving end of too much negativity it’s important to try and find what & where to find the strength again. In relaxing, exercising, cooking, talking to friends and family and also in doing just nothing. What are your best advice when struggling completing a task and receiving nothing but criticism for it? How do you switch that of and turn something bad into something great?
Whatever you do… think good of people and be there to offer support. Don’t attack someone who needs help… it’s all about kindness- especially right now! I so… recommend!
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… 😌🙏
