So, I have now been writing for almost three weeks. It’s exciting when I notice that people are signing up to my blog and to check out who is reading and viewing my posts- what country are you from? How can I make this into a success? What do I even mean by that? There are so many blogs that start every single day by motivated people. What will make mine stand out? I love researching and have signed up to different websites and blogs who tell me how to be successful. Usually they end with a course that I should sign up to. Do I have to? Do I want to? I admit I need to learn about SEO, how to make Pinterest work, to write about information that people search for and that they want to read about. I’m still convinced I’m on the right track writing about recommendations and telling people about many different things from integrating to a new country, to buying furniture and things for your home, how to settle in your family, job hunting, shopping, good products to also delve into spirituality a bit. This year has been tough for me in that sense that I relocated to a new country, settled in (still am) into a new job, getting my daughter into a new school in a new country, finding a home by myself, finding furniture, understand how it all works, making new friends, set up a back up network for my daughter and so on. But I am blessed- we are blessed. It’s an amazing opportunity! How can it not be. I want to share positivity with what I’m writing, set new challenges and hope that people will join me- from everything to being that bit more healthy, more present and happier and to see the light in people. Don’t expect the worst, don’t worry, have faith and enjoy every single minute of every day in your life. So I hope to attract readers who want to read what I write and also to create a dialogue. To talk, exchange experiences, recommendations and to understand what you do to live a life and enjoy it and appreciate and to be grateful. We only live once…(maybe another subject to debate) but live life to its fullest, stop being angry and bitter. I will also write with spice and passion. That is what I think makes a good read- to feel the reader and to make you think and want to participate. So, for now, have the most amazing day! Here you can read about my day, life, recommendations and… be reminded to appreciate and to be grateful on days when you need to hear that…
Thanks for reading this longer post. Together- we can achieve the most amazing things!!!
So, what can you do when you wake up and feel like all you want to do is just go back to bed again? Well it is quite easy, but requires a little bit of brain train. I have probably been a person who can look at things a bit dark. But, life is short and the person who suffers the most in these circumstances is you. So when you feel a bit down- try and think of how lucky you are instead. I have also started using the App 3 Good Things. You simply list three things that you are grateful for. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. This will be one of my challenges that I will do 7 days in a row. I truly believe that you can change your mind and how you think and perceive things. It’s is also about energy- and what you radiate. That’s what you attract to some extent. And surely life is a lot more fun if you are enjoying yourself, are positive and appreciate what you have! I recommend the App 3 Good Things
So this week my challenge is to be more present and here- not to look at my phone so much. I’m specifying the time I can use it. Let’s see how this goes! This is a real challenge for me. But it is important to spend quality time with your near and dear- the phone or that message can actually wait to later!
So this morning I made a nice one:
1 cup frozen yellow fruit
1 cup blueberry juice
1 tsp of Chia Seeds
Put in the blender and mix!
I’ve made a smoothie every morning in the last week, more than not. So I do feel proud of myself. I’ve now been writing here for about three weeks, and at first I had a few readers, now a lot less. I see it as a challenge and I will not give up. It is also holiday for a lot of people so I imagine people are staying away from media and gadgets for a few weeks. This week I will set myself allocated time when I will check my media streams. It is very addictive. I just think it can become more focused and structured if you allocate time instead of checking your iPhone every time an alert pops up on your iPhone. So that is my challenge this week! To use my iPhone more structured and focused.
Then I will continue writing here and understand the best way to attract readers and people who are interested in what I have to say and share. My goal would be to have 1,000 by the end of this year. I will write more about recommendations in Copenhagen, London, California and also about a few trips that we have planned this year. To Venice, the lakes in northern Italy, a cool train journey from London- Venice and so on. We are blessed and travel quite a lot in my family. Anyway I wish you all a great day and thank you for popping in here and reading my stories.
Ok I’m not proud to admit that I did not make a smoothie this morning. I will take this challenge up again and be more focused. Of course I could write and say I did it but that wouldn’t be the truth. So it goes back on my challenge list and next time I will be a lot more prepared!!!
I will not give up!
