I think it’s very important to have and to be surrounded by people you admire. I’ve never really had “famous” people that I’ve been impressed by or looked up to as role models. Have you?
Quite recently, I’d say I was more of a oh- the glass is “half- empty” as opposed to “half-full”. Earlier this year, I had a tough time moving, new job, settling in, commuting and so on. Let’s just say I was not in a good place! Then I decided to invest in myself so I actually contacted a career coach. I’d say she’s more of a life coach actually as she’s providing so many good tips and advice and teaching me to think slightly differently. It’s truly been great for me! I’ve had books recommended, Apps to use and a lot of sentences just got stuck in my mind. Sentences such as “flip the switch”, “is it really true” and the “ceiling”. It might sound a bit suspicious, especially as it is taken out of context like this but it’s really been a great experience for me! Coming from the Nordics and having spent a lot of time in the U.K. it’s a little bit of a sensitive subject to discuss how you are and how you feel. As opposed to the USA, where in my experience this seems to be a lot more acceptable to discuss with outsiders. Do you agree? I think talking about challenges that you are facing is a good thing. And for me, to reach out to someone who can ask you objective questions is great! As opposed to mole over the same subjects with friends and family and not really get anywhere. That’s why I feel so strongly about looking after yourself and writing about these weekly challenges. It’s to make you do something nice for you! Well maybe not all of them. Such as with the photo challenge. Did you see that one?
To make someone you know feel amazing!
And I also want us to think about our environment and use less plastics and so on…
So as I’ve mentioned before my goal with Fridays is to invite different people to guest blog here. I would like individuals to write a little bit about what they do to make themselves feel better! What do you do to remain positive? We all have challenges to over come, good, bad and better days! Hopefully some of you would like to participate?! I really hope so!!!
