367 days ago…

I am blogging for a year now.

 

…I launched my first blog post after three months of planning, information searching and brainstorming. I was in a place where nothing had sense, so I needed to do something. I had a lot of time and I wanted to use it well.

Have you ever had a feeling when you know exactly this is the time? No more excuses, no more time-wasting, no more regret, just actions? Well, I felt something like that. I felt this time must work. I was tired of waiting for the big opportunity.

People are kind. It sounds ridiculous but I tend to forget that people are kind and helpful as they were in Prague and in Cyprus (review part 2) as well. I was not afraid to ask information in return to get a look or a half answer where in the end you are the one who feels ashamed to bother others. People were thoughtful enough to offer some help when they saw we struggled with something. Continue reading

When to start fresh

You feel it. Always have a point when you cannot do it anymore. You need something new. A new house, a new job, a new friend or a new life.

I started to feel that something is missing or wrong 5 years ago. I was in a relationship, I had a decent job, I had my diploma but still… life seemed to be empty and I was not happy. Continue reading

How to boost your confidence? 

There are many opportunities that we have lost because we were not confident enough. We were/are shy and let other people take the show.

But regret is always coming and stay with you even years after. I know, I have been there before. It is important to realize how many important things that we can lose because we are lack of confidence. Continue reading

How to stop being so shy?

I am sure there are stages of being shy, depends on the age. We have different personalities, feelings, hormones, experiences at school, uni, at a party, sport event or workplace. I believe that our experiences and people’s support and behaviour around us can generate feelings about ourselves.

 

It is normal to being shy when there is the coolest kid in the group.

It is normal to being shy when someone treats you like you don’t have good ideas. Continue reading
