When do you have to say goodbye

When to say goodbye

So many memories. So many feelings. So many experiences. So many deep conversations. When do you have to give up on it? Do you have to at all?

Once, someone told me, you can manage only around 100 people in your life. Someone has to fall out to give space to someone new. I always think about this when an emotional distance wedge a rope between me and a friend and a friend became a stranger. Or at least someone who is not in my life anymore. Continue reading

New Year’s Resolutions – YES or NO?

motivational jar

I used to wait for the 1st   of January every year to replace my bad habits with good ones. It always worked for a few weeks then everything went back to normal.

At some point, I stopped expect everything to be upside down just because we leave another year behind us. The whole New Year`s Resolution is for self-improvement which should start with an appropriate approach that you can actually keep it. We don’t have to rely on it necessarily. Think about what is the best way for you and go for it.

If New Year’s Resolution gives you motivation, that’s fantastic but if you are like me and it is not an ideal option for you, here are my favourite self-improvement ideas which you can start any day of the year. Continue reading

Who is your role model?

role model

Most of us say it is a parent, friend, author, actress, businessman or even a motivational guru or certain life coach. I always wanted to be prepared for this question but I still don`t know.

Hm… you know what? Actually, I know the answer: I don`t have a role model. I admire people who have a positive personality, hard worker, strong, and confident and don`t give up on their dreams. These motivate me and that is the point of the role model. Continue reading

Spending Christmas with loved ones

Christmas without family

This is my 5th Christmas not being with my family, staying in London and spending time with my partner and friends.

I have lost a spirit in the last few years when I still lived in Hungary. The expectations bother me. Somehow everything has to be perfect for and during Christmas, nobody can say an angry word, we must love our brothers and sisters and we must be good for a few days.

I reached a point when I found this very dishonest. Why those `rules` state for only 2-3 days? We should be kind to others for the rest of the days as well. I believe it is okay to acting as it is a normal day like any other. And anyway – I remember – something always happened and we ended up in a fight. Continue reading

Perfectionism or Self-sabotaging

Perfectionism and self-sabotaging

I have read a blog post about self-sabotaging and it made me realize this is what I used to do!

Of course, I didn’t give a phrase to my actions at that time, but I always found a reason not to do something I really wanted to do. I always wanted to do something 100% perfect before I even started or practice it! But this is not possible – I know it now. Continue reading

How a big city changes you

how a big city can change you

This subject sneaked in my mind when I was exploring Prague in the middle of summer. I started to think about how much I have changed since I moved to London. Despite being happy for all of the good alterations that I can recall, there are a few spots that surprised me.

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

Why asking for help is hard to do?

Why asking for help is hard to do?

Do you keep your promises?

I am a person who keeps her words. I expect the same from others but this is not happening very often. Well… depends on the person. I should be more aware of this, but I tend to forget and assume the best from everyone.

I don’t think believing in people is a problem but after a while, it can be really disappointing. And that’s why I avoid asking favours. Well… I do, but very rarely and mainly when someone else is in a need. When my brother was looking for a job, I tried to remember all of my contacts who might be in a position to know some places where need an extra hand. Also, when my boyfriend needed some information one of the IT courses he was thinking to start his career at, another friend promised to give information about but it never happened… Continue reading

Thinking about someone from the past

What do you do when you have mixed feelings?

I have been distracted by my feelings lately. I couldn’t figure out what is it. I am not stressed – well… just a healthy way on a daily basis when my bus is delayed and I am on my way to work… Yeah, that’s so annoying but hey this is a disadvantage of a big city! But otherwise, all is good. I am feeling positive about a lot of plans for my future. And still…

I needed to find a reason because of my low mood so I started to think. Then hit me! Continue reading

Three weeks break – craziness around

3 weeks break

I need a break. I never let myself lie down and take a break. I would feel guilty. But now…

The last few months were a lot. I was looking for a new staff – actually two; going through hundreds of CVs, making phone calls, organizing interviews… My co-worker went on holiday, so I covered her shifts and ended up working 12 days in a row. I still had to do some shopping for the coming holiday a few days before the departure. I have started shopping 3 months ago just to avoid exactly the same situation such as finding a dress and shoes at the last minute, but it didn’t happen somehow. One of my friends told me a long time ago, I like adrenalin and last minutes feelings. I don’t. Trust me. But sometimes I feel she is right, tho. Continue reading
