get things done
Basically I’m talking about the things that have to be done in every adult human being’s life. Papers, household, and so on. If it drives you crazy at 3am, that you haven’t done your taxes yet, take a few hours and do them. If you think about your dishes and your dirty kitchen, go do it before bed. You will wake up thinking about starting the day in a welcoming, beautiful environment.
a tidy environment walks hand in hand with a tidy mind
something that works so incredibly well for me. I’ve never been a tidy person or a clean freak and sometimes it’s a real struggle BUT I always feel better in a tidy, clean & beautiful environment
keep a journal
Very often in moments where the brain is messing with you the hardest, it feels like there’s not one single person in this world who truly understands what’s going on inside. In these times (especially at this horrible, cursed hour of 3am), treat a journal like a person. It takes everything in. It does not judge. It’s always there.
spend time outside
I know it’s easier said than done but in the end, it’s a good habit that can be practiced. It’s like a muscle. Getting stronger by using it. The more you charge your mind with positivity and peace, the stronger it gets coping with the bad moments.
avoid unhealthy people
as cruel as it sounds, some people are like poison. Some people may be better at coping with this kind but for me as a highly sensitive human being it’s very draining to have poisonous people in my environment, so if they are immune to positive energy, I try to avoid them as much as possible.
Funny how while sitting outside, writing my post on my phone, I actually had a conversation with a woman I did not know – about what I just wrote – every point of it.
I just had the best few hours in a very VERY long time ♥
or why I want to start blogging again
I’ve always loved sharing thoughts & experiences
since I can remember in that aspect I’ve always been the typical woman – I love to talk.
A lot. Plus, I’m highly sensitive. I think a lot about anything and everything and I conciously perceive lots and lots of little things during a day that make me happy or sad or just make me think about things. And I love to improve my life. Constantly.
My private environment is not as interested
Sad but true. Which is one of the reasons how I got the idea to start a blog again … it’s a place to treat like a person without being a person that may react the wrong way or just not being interested enough. The thing is (to give you an example), I rearranged my living room after it had been in a state that’s been causing demotivation and anxiety for too long. I happily told my mum in a super long whatsapp about how I feel so much better and being so happy – and her plain reaction was … “nice”
Around the same time (last weekend) my best friend told me, I’m always texting so much she may not have gotten everything I told her.
Not expecting feedback from a blog
maybe texting people is the wrong way of sharing thoughts. at least for me it’s the most frustrating in my personal environment. Maybe I just need to tell things but if I’m texting people, I’m expecting certain things. Reactions to be precise. On Blogposts, reactions are appreciated but not expected.
Always torn between different social media
I love social media but no matter what platform I focus on and no matter what I’m trying, social media is wonderful, I really love it and need it, but it’s not enough. Will never feel as personal and private as a blog or website.
English is difficult but I will try
English has always been my preferred language because it is the one language, most people are able to understand. It’s no problem to chat or write social media captions – but it’s a whole different story to write long blog posts and trying to express my thoughts which are often multi-layered and chaotic.
Being the starving artist I am
I just deactivated my Netflix and Amazon Prime to focus on being more produtive. It’s My way of coping with finances. I know I could have started with a free wordpress but I dearly love my blog title and wanted to make sure the domain is mine from the start.
So. here I am again. Back at the thing I always return to in the end. being a blogger. LET’S DO THIS!
