Stop overthinking

stop overthinking

I used to have this unpleasant habit of overthinking everything. But really – everything. When things went well, I was afraid that it would be ruined. When things went wrong, I was kept thinking about it and made the situation even worst in my mind.

I am much better now but I still can make such a mess in my head by myself.

One of my friends back on the horse as she started dating again after a long period. Guess what? She is already overthinking it. I totally understand her, I have been there and so many times I feel grateful that I don’t have to go through these stages of dating having my other half.

What she should really do instead is enjoying the day, the dates, the messages, the compliments, the dinner together. Enjoy the excitement of something new. Enjoy the moment. It is ok to think about something and ok to keep it in your mind but try not to get crazy over something. Eventually, everything will turn out either this or that way. We must go with the flow.

How many times have you ruined your day because you were worried about tomorrow? Or yesterday?

If it meant to be, it will be. Nothing – especially worrying – can change that.

When are we getting back our freedom?

getting back our freedom

When I was a kid, I used to read the description of star signs and was always excited when something great was written to me. Growing up, I left these columns behind me but if one thing is true, being an Aquarius, I cannot stand any limitation of my freedom. You can imagine how lockdown made me crazy then.

Now, having more normality in our life again, there are only a couple of things that is still not allowed to do, but there are so many restrictions which is more or less a limitation of our freedom – still.

Of course, I understand why we need to do certain things and I follow the rules, but a pleasant thing is becoming a hassle now. I love to travel and discovering new countries and cultures, but even going anywhere doesn’t give me joy at all. Even just going home is such a difficulty. Or going out. When there is a long queue in front of your favourite restaurant makes you feel losing your appetite.

I thought lifting the lockdown and going to work again will solve my mood swings, but it didn’t really work out how I thought it would.

I try to see the positive side of everything and find alternatives of my `normal doings` but with all uncertainty around, most of the time is difficult.

Get the blame for a kind thing you have done

Get the blame for a kind thing you have done

What an amazing feeling could it be?!

Well yeah, I definitely feel it from time to time. Have you ever heard a sentence “once my big heart will kill me”. So you know what I am talking about…

I have learned to say no for a long time ago now… It makes my life easier and protects me from unnecessary drama and conflict which I am not into at all. Sometimes, I still put others above me and in the end, I am the one who hurts the most. Continue reading

Call it home

call it home

They say it doesn’t matter where you live as long as your heart in it and I have to agree to it!

I had lived in many different places in the past in Hungary and in London as well but I always tried to make the most out of it. It doesn’t matter if it was a small or bigger room, living with many people, but my own space, my room was my castle! I always find a way to decorate within a low budget, I don’t go crazy spending a fortune on it, but rather rely on my creative self and using what sources or material I have. And of course, there are plenty of DIY pages and videos on the web so getting ideas shouldn’t be a problem. Continue reading

Would your 5 years younger self be proud?

Would your 5 years younger self be proud

 

Yes… no… maybe… I don’t know…

There are so many different answers we can get. I think it all depends on what matters? How we measure success or happiness? How we measure proudness? What do you want to achieve to be proud of yourself? List things to own? Milestones you have reached that you set for yourself by the age of 25? 30? 40…? Do you consider happiness as something to be proud of? Continue reading

Find every day’s purpose

each day has its purpose

Usually, I wake up with a “let’s-do-it” attitude and carry on task from my to-do list. I am very satisfied when I can tick off something from my never-ending list.

One of the days in the middle of the lockdown (who knows which week or day was it…) I had a day when I woke up with a fed-up feeling. I felt like ah… it is a new day. What shall I do today? I felt like this day will be exactly the same as many others before. Cooking, exercising, studying, watching series, blogging – just to name a few. I was not in a mood to do anything super productive. Instead, I was scrolling my Insta, making comments and listening to music and just singing. Thankfully, nobody was a witness to my voice. 😀 Continue reading

Is it bad thinking about the past?

thinking about the past

 

We all have good and bad memories from our past which can be crawling back to our mind from time to time. Remember of pleasant moments are uplifting and can draw a smile on our faces. On the other hand, remember unpleasant memories can make us sad or even angry.

When this happens, it is advisable to understand what they mean. Why they are pop in our minds when we don’t wait for them. And why we punish ourselves chewing them over and over again. Continue reading

Forget about how busy we are for a moment

how busy are our lives

How busy are our lives?

I have been sitting at home for 9 weeks now. It shows me how important to spend more time with family and friends when there is no virus around and we get our lives back.

But these weeks are teaching me something else too. It also shows how I forget to appreciate moments. I was going to lose my mind just staying at home at some point. I understood the reason and kept this rule as long as I had to but still had better and worse days to accept it. Continue reading
