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!

Grateful

Last night I couldn’t sleep and 1 thought hit me which was : I am not just A person but I am a lot of things to other people and unfortunately I forget about it a lot.

For example :

I am a daughter of 3 lovely people (Yes 3)

I am a sister to 12 sipplings (Yes 12)

I am an aunt to so far 12 wonderful kids (yes 12)

I am a girlfriend to loving men (kidding) a loving man

A godmother to the cutest girl

A friend to great and loyal friends

A cousin to God knows how many

A blogger who has a good network on wordpress.com

and the list can be continued

But what I am trying to say here is that I should be more grateful and appreciate the people around me, so this post is a reminder to myself : Be GRATEFUL and THANKFUL  for the people in my life and for all “the roles” I get to play in their lives!

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!!

“You will never lose the sense of passion of what you love to do”

I just saw an interview with Rita Wilson who was on the Ellen Show. She is in her fifties and had recently made her debut as a singer.

I found a few things during her interview which are quite inspiring!

She talked about that there is no reason to be limited by anything and that she asks people what is the one thing that they loved as a kid, because life can sidetrack you, with “my parents want me to study this” and I have to get this job because of this and that” However you will never lose the sense of passion of what you love to do. And I think what she means is that people should remember to live out their passions.

Maybe some people will say “remember that not everything is possible and that you have to be realistic too” to what Rita Wilson had to say, but isn’t possible that some people are being way too realistic???

Have a wonderful Saturday 🙂

A short post inspired by the “Golden Girls”

Continuing with my Golden Girls mode..

In an episode regarding parenting, Dorothy Zbornak, played by Beatrice Arthur said : “Don’t do what is easiest but do what is best for the kids “, and this phrase has made a great impact on me. But not as in parenting, but in life generally.

We often choose the easiest decision/solution in life, like continuing with what we are doing instead of making a change and break out of the routine, and the easiest solution is often also with less risks. But does this mean that it is the best for us?

Think about it for a while…

To end this short post I would like to share a quote by Isaac A. Morales

“A life without risk is a life not lived”
