What do you focus on today? What does it mean to you? Focus…? The older (wiser?!) I get, the more I realise that any kind of change you want in your life, it is all up to you… whatever it may be that you may not be happy with or would like for to be different- that change that should happen to make sure it turns into something- it is all… up to you. Nobody else. Don’t expect your family or friends to change, nor your workplace or your colleagues. The only thing, or person you can influence- is you. So on that note- what are you going to do about it?
“This is your life and only you can live it well”.
That will be my mantra for this week. Of course I know in life we all have challenges, life altering such… but with these words & mantra hopefully it will inspire and empower you. Tell yourself that this week and set your mind to complete something that you have put off for too long… why not? I so… recommend! Have a super week!!! 💪
Focus this week is to get out of comfort zone and to dare. Challenge yourself into doing something new or something different?! Get up earlier for exercise, prepare healthier breakfasts, cook more from scratch, make that presentation at work, connect with friends or family you haven’t talked to in a while, watch that movie you’ve said you’ll watch or read that book you’ve thought about reading 100’s of times. Just do it! Enjoy every single minute of this week… breathe, smile and just be happy. Why…? Just because you can. “Should, would, could, did.”
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!
