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.

When you don’t have a chance to do what you really want, create one for yourself. It could be anything, really.

I created a place for myself where I can do what I always wanted to do, writing. Also, it gives me a great opportunity to learn more about marketing and business.

After a year, I am still here, sitting in front of my laptop and writing my weekly posts. 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 we can understand people and why it’s important

How we can understand people and why it's important2

Have you ever been mad at your friends? Of course, you had been… Let’s be honest, friendship is as the same as any relation – different personalities, dreams, desires, plans, ways of thinking. It is normal to have a disagreement between friends.

I had been angry with my friends lately. They decided to move to Spain a few months ago. They are still in London, but since then I haven’t really heard from them. We always tried to plan a night out but never happened. They were too busy with other stuff… Pf… Who wasn’t? They finished their job months ago and – in my mind – the only thing they had to do is packing. Of course, I didn’t know the small but important details such as they haven’t found a house in Spain yet, they haven’t found a new housemate who will take over their rooms and so on.

How should I know? They didn’t tell me these! I only knew (from my point of view) that they avoid me. I felt down because I knew our days are counted. Of course, I am going to visit them, it will be a great opportunity to explore Alicante, but I badly wanted to have time with them before they jump in the car and start their journey.

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

How and when do you implement change in your plan?

implement change in plan

My easy answer is when there is a need. But it is not as simple as that… I know that! It is NEVER as easy as it seems!

If you are a little bit like me you know that waiting for something is not our thing! At all! We like planning ahead and like to start working on our plan as soon as possible. Better to say immediately! Oh yeah… and get mad when something is not happening as fast as we would like! We need to work on this tho… 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

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 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
