Stay positive!


Hi! I am sorry, I’ve been quite busy the last couple of days. My brother and me moved to a new apartement, so there was a lot of work to do, building up Ikea furniture, cleaning, packing and so on. Then I had to study for my first real exam at the university and I was a little sick the over the weekend. Not that sick that I just could lay in bed, but my ears hurt (and they still do) and my throat, but I wan’t able to work out.

Anyway, I am so happy that I could move to a new apartement. After two years of living in a boarding school, 1 1/2 years in a students living community, where no one really knew what ‚clean up behind you‘ meant, I can finally live at my own peaceful place. I wasn’t quite happy the last couple of weeks, at least my friends told me that I looked differently, tired and not like myself. I could feel that I lost almost all of my ‚inner peace‘ and I got stressed very easily and wasn’t able to manage things in that easy way I used to do. We were really lucky that we found that apartement by chance! Even when I like to say: „There’s no coincidence, only the illusion of a coincidence!“ (-Alan Moore)

So what I want to say is, if you are not happy, you have to change something! We choose happiness, it’s a choice, not something that just happen to people who are lucky! People ask me: How can you always stay positive?
– Simple as that, I would not be able to manage anything, if I would be angry and mad at everything. Sure, there are bad days when I just want to cry, when I fail, when I struggle.. We have to fight through these days to know the worth of the good days!

I am reposting an old article about my positive thinking, just as a reminder for myself and everybody else who is struggling at the moment! 🙂

  • First of all: worry less! I read in a book that 90% (!) of our worries are unnecessary! We use to think too much, worry too much, but every problem can be solved, just think positive and more clearly. It’s never a problem, it’s a new challenge!
  • Suround yourself with uplifting and encouraging people! It’s easier to be happy if you stick to nice people.
  • Treat everyone one the same way you wish to be treated. How do you feel if people are unfriendly and mean? Not good? So don’t be that person no one wants to be with!
  • Don’t live in the past, everyone makes mistakes, everyone made wrong decisions, but it was YOUR decision, so you have to live with it and accept it. We can’t change the past, so don’t think about it that much anymore, instead learn from it!
  • Live in the moment! Enjoy your day, smile, laugh, be happy, do things which makes you happy right now!
  • Love yourself first! Take care of your body, make time for yourself, be happy with yourself!
  • Be optimistic! If you think you’ll have a bad meeting, a bad race or write a bad mark, it really will be bad! So tell yourself instead everytime: ‚I can do this‚, believe it and the next time it will be much better! 🙂
  • Most important: Do what you love! If you don’t like you job, quit.. if you don’t like to run, go and swim.. You’ve always wanted to try this yoga course? Then make time for it and do it! If there’s something that doesn’t make you happy, then simply don’t do it! Don’t feel ashamed and never think about what others think! Believe me, this could make a huuuge difference in your life! It’s important that YOU feel good about the things you are doing. It’s not important what others think as long you are happy! 🙂
  • Life is great, never forget that! 😉
