Time of self-reflection

self-reflection

They say until situations are happening again and again, you still need to learn something from it. The tricky part is that you don’t know what it could be!

It can be a colleague who you have a fight with all times but then changing your job, you find yourself in the same shoes. So, what you need to learn? It could be more empathy towards different personalities or more understanding of other beliefs and working style.

Chasing a right relationship, but you always find a partner who never spends enough time with you or never give you any compliment. What do you need to learn? Maybe you need to leave your habit behind you of measuring your values on others opinions.

Knowing what you need to improve on yourself is hard. There is no thing said out loudly, you just find yourself in the same position again and again. You can blame the circumstances or environment around you, but the truth is this is a sign of finding the root of the problem inside. A sign of self-reflection. Time of realization of you need to improve yourself.

You can take it as a pain in the neck thing or you can take this as an opportunity to be or handle things much better for the future. Less thing bothers or upsets you, higher your inner peace would be.

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

How easily do you change your mind?

change your mindset

I think it depends on what is on the table. Sometimes, I feel jumping between options but when I am thinking about my habits it can be hard to be consistent with a new perspective.

I have read a book about taking pictures for Instagram and other social media sites. It was a lovely Xmas present and finally, I had time to finish it. The book is about change your general perspective and always tries to explore different shapes, colours or subjects when taking photos. It can reflect on our lives as well, I guess it doesn’t harm anyone to change our view from time to time. Continue reading

How to adapt to a situation

How to adapt to a situation

Recently, we moved into a new flat and I jumped into decorating it. I am so obsessed with decoration and design (at some point I was thinking to be a graphic designer but never happened… yet…) and usually, I try to buy cheap DIY staff and create myself something which gets in shape in my mind or just order a wall sticker and place it. This time – of course, because of the coronavirus and lockdown – I had to be even more creative. I had a few days of research on Pinterest that I will be able to manage to make from what I have at home and jumped into it. Continue reading

Does time anxiety exist?

does time anxiety exist

It actually does and you can give a meaning to it such as ‘is it too late’? This type of anxiety is the fear of wasting your time, not using your potential, or feeling it is too late to start something new.

I was talking to a friend the other day and what else could have been the main topic – of course – other than the coronavirus. We were sharing feelings about it and how we are copying in this unusual situation. Continue reading

Why I am grateful for each babysteps?

Why I am grateful for each babysteps

I am in the middle of my room around a big mess and trying to put my life into boxes. We are moving into a new flat on Saturday.

I am trying to sort out what comes and what goes to charity – when they will open again… My London-life… It happened 6 years ago. I packed a bag and booked a flight to London. I would say it definitely was the best decision in my life.

So many things have happened since I arrived in this (for me) new country. I have had different jobs, apartments, opportunities to grab and lose. I have become friends with so many people and lost connection with so many from the past.

Every step was about moving forward and each move was a bit better than the previous one. I always have had a bigger picture in my mind where I am and where I want to be. Sometimes I could move on quickly, but sometimes time just didn’t want to come.

Working on better chances, circumstances or just call it life is hard effort. These 6 years have taught me whatever want to do in your life is only up to you and your dedication to that goal.

Whatever stage you are in your life it can be better and it will be better. You are the one who can decide what you want and have endurance working on it and make sacrifices.

Change your habit, change your mindset and realize you are the leader of your life. Before that, you always would blame your circumstances, your past, people around you, not having enough opportunity to break out of your current conditions.

 

Don’t give up. Remember if ‘Plan A’ didn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters! Keep going on!

To be grounded as an adult

self isolation

I have to say, I actually like it – so far. It has been only 1.5 weeks so it is not really much and let’s see what I will say about this lockdown in a month’s time :O but hey…. let’s live in a present for now. 😉

Since the lockdown, there is great British weather outside of course… which hardly happens usually… and I am only able to look at this tempting sunshine from my window which is next to my desk where I work. Not sure if this is the right spot for me…. Continue reading

You are not late from anything

You are not late from anything

Another birthday, another cake, another candle at the top. Yep, I have a birthday this Friday. Khm… Thirty-something…

I used to hate my birthdays when I was younger because it always reminded me how my real life is different than it was in my dreams.

I am okay with it for a few years now, of course, but I don’t make a big fuss about it. It is just a number and doesn’t mean much anymore. Continue reading

Avoiding regrets in life

avoiding regrets in life

I have been reading a book from Anne Griffin When All is Said. An elderly man raises five toasts to five people who have meant the most to him.

These stories are full of joy, regret, tragedy and secrets which part of our lives anyway. It is thought-provoking to read how the smallest thing can cause regret in the future – a childish action or even stubbornness. Continue reading
