Being a blogger sounds like a perfect job so many people dream about. Even though I blog part time only, I tend to say that blogging is my full time job and my full time passion I’m so happy to be able to work on. However, we are all aware of the fact that, even though we all dream about dream jobs, there is no dream job without any draw-backs at all. Having said this, I’m not trying to deny I do something I’ve always wished for, but I’m simply being honest, because in the end…
Even a dream job is a job and it means to constantly work on something to achieve something.
Having a baby is probably the most beautiful experience ever! I have got my little prince four months ago and since then I’m the happiest person on earth. Well, I guess most moms feel this way. But, here comes a big BUT! Having a baby is a big deal too, a really, really big deal.
Well, today I want to share with you a very personal issue. Today I want to tell you something, that no one told me and I’m a little bit mad at everyone around me.
With the beginning of the new year, I want to start something new on the blog – namely a monthly recap. In these, first of all I want to share my highlights of the month with you guys, but also I want to do this for me as a motivation, just so I don’t lose sight of all the great things that happen in my life and everything I am thankful for. This way, even in 20 years from now I will be able to see which great things happened in January 2017 :). Since I’m not consistent to write a diary, I will at least write a monthly recap. Now let me share with you some highlights of this month :).
How often do you catch yourself commenting things like: “Gosh, why is she posing naked? This is so cheap. I would never do this.” or “She’s in a relationship with this old man. This is so disgusting.” Now tell me, how are you feeling at this very moment when you say these words? Do you feel good, happy, or rather frustrated, full of negativity? Now let me tell you something:
You’ll never feel good when you start talking or thinking badly of anyone.
If people stopped judging each other for their actions, the world would be such a better place. Who are we to judge if someone’s lifestyle and actions are right or wrong? And what is the criterion for THE right action or decision? Our own ones? But who told us that they’re right? I’m not proud to admit this, but not so long ago I was the poster child of a person who judged everyone who was not acting according to her own principles. Looking back now, I realize how bad that was, how unhappy this state of mind was making me and how much happier I am right now that I finally managed to change this. This is something I’ve been reflecting on much lately and that’s why I want to share it with you.
2016 – a year full of ups and downs – but thankfully mostly ups. Now it’s time to say goodbye to 2016 and embrace 2017 with open arms, but no expectations and resolutions… well, almost no resolutions, except one – being happy – my only resolution for the new year.
I’m growing older. With every day and every second that passes by. Maybe it’s something I simply started noticing in the last few months, but I’ve got the feeling that I’m constantly being questioned about my current age. As far as I can remember, no one used to care about my age just a few years ago and I’m seriously starting to ask myself: What in this world has actually changed? Is it THAT visible, or…is it because I’m simply surrounded by too many people that are stressed about their age and about growing older. Should I feel bad about the fact that I’m growing older? And, who has come up with this “idea” that asking a woman about her age is inappropriate? Honestly, that’s one of the most stupid things I’ve ever heard.
