December blogging and sharing thoughts

December is a great month. For us as a family it’s full of birthdays, celebrations, school events, get together and preparing for Christmas. I’m especially looking forward to Christmas this year as we will be together just close family. We will have days together with no expectations. Or well… as they can be with a 9yrs old in the house!

I am planning on spending more time on my blog. To make it look a bit nicer, go through previous posts, look into Pinterest more and most likely go self hosted. I’m still not certain about that as technology is not my forte. I did notice that there are changes coming to my subscription plan here and it’s making me reconsider a few things. Why do you blog? What is it that you want to achieve? Do you have a vision of what you really want? Do you have to know? I write because I’m really enjoying it. It’s been 6 months now. It’s a balance as well. How much do you write about your personal life? It’s completely up to you. You decide. It’s important to be genuine though. I think that’s important. I really want to recommend and create these challenges! 2019 will be more. I did a small crazy thing and signed up for a half marathon as already mentioned… so I will have a few challenges about running. There will be more about Yoga with Adriene. She does this amazing challenge in January. Then I want to inspire and encourage and focus on the positive in life. I don’t always succeed. This week has been tough. I don’t really like confrontations but sometimes you have to confront. I know I have a few small disagreements coming up in my life… I’ve learned though that it’s part of life. Some people actually enjoy differences and disagreements- I personally prefer agreements and harmony. But life isn’t always that. There is so much I want to achieve in 2019! I want health, fun, focus, challenges, personal and professional success meaning happiness and contentment and truly really feel that I make a difference. I want to influence and spread good and this “can do attitude”. Life certainly is not a dance on roses. But it’s a lot more fun if you can learn to laugh more, take things less serious, enjoy, challenge yourself and believe in yourself!!! That… I truly really recommend! The rest of December will be amazing! 2019 fantastic!!! Enjoy every minute of every day… the good, the bad, the grey and the pink. It’s a privilege to be here…

Convinced it’s the small things in life that we need to focus on to ensure we live a happy life. Love sharing experiences and recommendations and starting to understand that positivity is very contagious!

  1. I am with you on this one and at work, this is what I have found while being in this new job, before the start of something else that has caused an atmosphere at work, as whole. Hence my blog post last night. “Some people actually enjoy differences and disagreements- I personally prefer agreements and harmony. ”
    I want the same. Life is for living and having fun. One person seems to have forgotten that, but as a whole, I am not being dragged into that atmosphere. Life should be fun. There are enough issues in this world, without creating more.

    1. Yes I fully agree… sometimes it is more about the other person than about you. It’s important with boundaries at work and to keep respect… and to not forget that life is to enjoy. There will always be people with opinions- some stronger than others. Be true to yourself… take deep breathes and also fantastic that you love your job. It will pass πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Œ

      1. This particular person has made it clear for months about how she hates work. More so now because of new changes the last few months. But when another person caused upset, which she clearly hates, it’s like she is losing the sense of humour she once had. Before the atmosphere started, it was just me and her at the time discussing this other. (I don’t like this other either, as I knew her elsewhere.) I said to this lady that the only person stressing right now while talking about the other, is herself. Which isn’t helping her I said and the other person is not going to care. She agreed. But it’s not changed her.
        I said to her how I have learnt over the last few years, but more so in the last two of keeping myself to myself. Don’t worry on things you can’t change and if you hate your job that much as I did at my last place, then leave, otherwise find ways to sail through it, because you are only hurting yourself.

        I shall keep myself to myself and speak individually when it’s to do with work and being polite. But I shan’t sit as a whole group.
        It made me nearly ill, hence I was craving quiet so much. Removing myself away from them, is the only way and speaking to them individually on passing. x

      2. Is there anyone else you can talk to- a manager? Your strength is that you love your job so focus on that. It’s never fun with confrontation and/ or negativity in the workplace. Natural and normal? Yes to the extent that in the workplace you are put together with a range of people… you don’t get to chose them. To some extent differences can be good. But it’s never a good thing if it makes you ill… hopefully you can talk to someone near you, focus on your good work, enjoy life outside of work and know that better times are just around the corner. β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Œ

      3. Yes, the manager I can speak to or email anytime. She already knows before I was sick of their moans and groans and how some of it I felt was pointless. She was the one that told me to sit on my own in this other room I now choose, as I am allowed. She doesn’t know the latest where it made me ill nearly and onwards, so I need to tell her this.

      4. That’s great… and remember… it is not about you here it sounds like- at all. You love your job and seem to have a good relationship with your manager. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Œ


      5. Email already sent to her, while my mind is on it. I know it’s not directly towards me, it’s just however she is feeling too. But she needs to deal that with herself and let go. But by me not being round it, I won’t get dragged down. Thank you for listening. X

      6. Of course! Been in tricky situations at work too… not fun but important to not get too upset about it and to say stop when it makes you ill. I actually got help this year by an amazing career coach! As with moving etc and dealing with a new job and everything that comes with that got a bit too much! It helps sometimes to talk to someone outside circle of friends and family. I do know that it will pass and situations like this will make you a stronger and more resilient person. Good luck !!! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Œ
