The year of self development

A year has passed since I got home from New York and during the past year I have experienced quite a lot and  I could actually call it “the year of self development”

I came back to DK from the most wonderful stay in New York  and from not to have a job, to studying, to having a part time job, to get my coach certification and now to have a full time job again and moving to another city. And in between all that the best part was having chances to meet so many great people who had taught me so much about life both  in positive and negative ways and I couldn’t be more grateful.

 

I could write books about how much the New York trip and the past year mean to me and to my own self development – but the biggest lessons I have learned during the past year are :

1) if you want changes – create them and remember to bring your heart along

2) believe that things will work out

3 ) believe in your own strengths

And the most important –

4) learn to be grateful

🙂

Take good care my friends!

Advice from an older couple!

Last week I accidentally bumped into an older couple which lead me to a wonderful conversation about life in general.

Egon is 84 and Erna is 80 and they have been dating for the last 3 years. They met each other by a coincidence  after their former husband and wife passed away.

They told me that life is funny and that the best advice they can give is to stay positive and always look on the bright side no matter what kind of obstacles we are facing and the fact of trusting that things will work out in the end.

Another important matter is to be grateful for the people around you, your family and true friends ! They are the ones you can count on when life gets tough! And in general just being grateful for all the things we have.

That conversation gave me lots of positive energies! And I am sending them out to all of you!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Success(ful)

I like to daydream, do you like to daydream? When you are daydreaming, what is it about?

I daydreamed about  being successful, I CRAVED for SUCCESS in career!

And so I had spent a lot of time thinking of the word SUCCESS !

I looked it up under wikipedia and it said :

  • a level of social status
  • achievement of a goal
  • the opposite of failure
Thinking of these 3 phrases..It made me realize that my FEAR of failing is making me crave for being successful. But again who wants to start on something and fail on it, right? If i fail on what I am doing, that gives people a reason so say : HA ! And that thought had terrified me in a very long time.
HOW EVER how about the journey towards your goal(s), Anna asked me once.
Well, our conclusion is, trying to reach the goal is actually already a step towards success. It is no doubt a lot better than not taking actions and being left with : I should have done that / how would my life be if I….
Also it is important to think of the things you have learned during the journey !
This blog for me is about inspiring people and even though I haven’t got thousands of readers, the few people who say that I have inspired them, simply make me think: YES!! And also what I have learned is that by writing, it gives me a better insight on my own life.
I bought a book by Patti Digh called “Creative is a Verb” and in this book I found a lot of quotes which inspire me to write and being creative.
This one I would like to share with you guys and hope that it will inspire you to take a step.
