Sitting on the floor in the shower

I had a so-so week where I had many ups and also many downs.

Sometimes I just feel like I am selling myself short, I know I can do more, and yet I am still overthinking many things. Although I am working on making it better and actually go and give my full potential.

Yesterday was a very good day, I went for a run (note: in the rain), and then I took myself out on a date to the movies. I love the movies, I love popcorn and soda, and the combination with a big screen is my ideal date. So I went and spend some time with myself and just be on my own. I love to do things on my own, it is so much fun and it really feels like freedom.

Today however, I felt a little bit down, maybe because the weekend is finished, it is full moon, I woke up grumpy or whatever the reason may be. I did not feel myself today and so I took a long shower and sat on the floor. Crying my eyes out. And I allowed myself to do so. It is OK to do so.

I did not judge myself, I did not feel sorry for myself, I did not think I was a sad girl with all the worries of the world on my shoulder. 

I let it all out, and now I am writing this blog. To let you all know, that sometimes we have amazing days and sometimes we have days that are less amazing but are still amazing because we are alive and there is another chance waiting for us to try and give it our all. And that is the blessing and the gratitude we need to show ourselves and the universe.

May it provide more and more of the amazing days for us.

Thanks for reading!

Life never stops teaching

How many of you think that one day they will be free from problems? How many of you think they will be free from worry or free from the less-good things happening in their life?

I personally think we will never be free of any of that at all, unless you are dead. Then you have no problems at all. You will be then worry free, stress free, problem free, anxiety free. fd9e02ea-10b3-4d56-8991-7a637350e5db

Why is this? Because life never stops teaching and we will never stop learning. In order for us to grow and to get somewhere amazing we have to keep learning, it just never stops! And don’t feel bad about this, because it is actually a good thing! WHY? Because it means that you are developing yourself and becoming a better YOU! Sometimes growth is fun, and sometimes it is less fun and we have to dig through the dirt to see the sunlight.

When I realized this today I felt a bit of heaviness off my shoulders, because the moment of being free of all that will never be here, and it is something that I do not and CANNOT chase. The road that kept leading me into a wall is not on the map anymore, I have erased it. Instead I see it from a new different perspective. Every level has its challenges, and see them as FUN challenges, the ones where you get to know yourself better and go more inwards.

We will not suffer when we grow and reach our goals. Absolutely not, as a matter a fact I think we become even better at solving problems and at “worry”, because we know how to handle it and worry even less. We will become more peaceful with life and with ourselves and allow ourselves to grow. But you have to allow yourself to rise, do not Pas de promessesresist or it will only hurt you even more.

We become a better version, more polished and get through life much easier and with more joy. But before we can enjoy that version of our (future) self, we have to understand that life will never stop teaching and we will never stop learning.

Here is to rising higher and enjoying the sunlight. Cheers!

You create yourself

We build ourselves with the choices we make every day, deciding to do something, or not.

When you leave your house in the morning, you will not come back being the same person. You have changed during the day, simply by the choices you have taken that day. Who you hanged out with? What were you thinking, positive or negative thoughts? Did you actually DO what you wanted to DO and know you have to DO or did you slack in discipline and left it?

Be aware of what you are doing today because you are creating the person you will be tomorrow. If you are not happy with yourself at the moment remember that you brought yourself to that position. You have to take responsibility for that and fully understand it. Do not blame anyone for where you are now at the moment but yourself.

So now that you know that you BUILD yourself and you CREATED this person that you are now what would be your next step? Are you going to do the things you NEED to do in order to become the person you want to be tomorrow?

Surround yourself with people who you see yourself with when you are successful, take the choices that you would take if you were already that person that you want to be. Ask yourself, will I do it like this or that if I was already where I want to be? Chances are NO, you would probably take different decisions because you would have a different mind-set, different priorities, you see things differently.

Therefor, be aware of what you are thinking today, what you are eating, what you are doing, who you hang out with, and build yourself from there. Become the person you WANT to be.

The healthy breakfast

I have been trying to eat healthy since I came back from my holiday. I went to visit my families and when I am on a holiday I like to let myself go and enjoy all the food. I never calculate calories or such.

Since I came back to Sydney, I made sure that there is always something healthy to eat in the fridge. Yesterday, I was lying down in bed and I could not sleep. Scrolling down Instagram I found some very creative ways of having my yoghurt with my Muesli and fruit. I could not wait for the morning to come so I can create something delicious for myself.

And here it is:

Ingredients: Strawberries, Muesli, Nuts, Vanilla Yoghurt, Orange, Apple, and Berries 🙂

Since I am injured and I cannot exercise, I thought to myself I have to eat healthy because I am not moving a lot at the moment. This breakfast was delicious, fresh, smooth and crunchy.

Try it out and let me know your thoughts!

Monday Motivation

Do you remember guys that I made a video saying how much I regret not enjoying my time in Sydney and did not do what I truly wanted to… Well guess what… I came back to Australia last week, and I couldn’t be more grateful for it.

First week was mainly getting over my jetlag, I had troubles sleeping at night or staying awake during the day.

Now that I have asked the universe for another chance to still go back to Sydney and do all the things I wanted to do and explore, I will not let this go to waste!!! I have regret it once and I made a mistake, I am not planning to do it again, yes, trust me. The feeling of regretting something is too painful. Although I am happy for whatever happened, like I said, lesson learned 🙂 .

For my Monday Motivation blog for today, I would like to remind you all, if there is something that you really want to do and you have put your mind on doing it, just go for it. It is not easy to regret things afterwards, trust me. If you feel like you need some guidance and some help from a higher power, just ask the Universe and let it lead you to whatever you desire. Don’t forget to follow the Universe, it knows the way 😉 .

Side note: Never be sad when whatever you asked for is not coming, the greater powers might have planned something bigger for you, or they are giving you a detour as they want you to collect a few more skills along the way. 

I am happy that what I asked for came to me, I know that this is where I need to be now or else I was somewhere else. This is my chance to enjoy like never before! ❤
