Situation Sunday ~ 16th December

A hard week is soon over and a new week is just around the corner. I am so grateful for all the amazing people around me that support me. This week has been a challenge, but I made it through and because of that I am a little bit stronger. 

Today I wanted to quit. I was going to my self-defence class and I just wanted to call my friend and say that I was not feeling good. But I powered through. And I had an amazing time. It was hard at times when I had my flashbacks, but the trainers where amazing. 

After the self-defence class, my husband and I took a walk with the dogs down by the river. It was starting to get dark, but it was beautiful with the snow that was gently falling down.

Picture from today’s walk down by the river

Now I am sitting on my sofa with two sleeping dogs beside me and my husband is driving to change cars with my parents and to pick up pizza. Probably the last pizza before we move to Edinburgh. I love pizza, but we don’t eat it that much. We try to cook as much as possible, because of my food allergies. 

Now I am going to snuggle with my dogs. I hope you all have a fantastic Sunday. A happy third Advent. We are going to light the third candle when my husband gets home. 

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday – 10th December

It’s Monday and time to get motivated! Today’s quotes are one that I know I had in one of my old Calender’s.

“Do What You Can With All You Have, Wherever You Are.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

I don’t really know what to say about this quote. I think it sums it up well. And I think this one is good not just as a motivation, but also if you think about what you see in the world. If you want to change things that you find to be wrong. Everyone can do something. 

I hope you will have an amazing Monday and a fantastic week!

Love, Nea

3 December ~ Motivational Monday

It’s Motivational Monday and today I want to share a motivational quote that I feel is very important because when I started studying at University I was 26 years old and people said to me that I was too old.

“You Are Never Too Old To Set Another Goal Or To Dream A New Dream.” ~ S. Lewis

But you are never to old. Do what you want. Follow your dreams. Go after what you want. 

That’s all I wanted to say today. Have a fantastic Monday and an amazing week!

Love, Nea

26th November ~ Motivational Monday

It’s a new week and I have so much on my mind. For this Motivational Monday, I decided to share a quote that I have to remind my self about constantly. 

“Think Continually About What You Want, Not About The Things You Fear.” ~ Brian Tracy

Bemuse I live with anxiety, depression and panic attacks, I am afraid of so many things. I am afraid something can happen to my husband, the dogs or my family. I am afraid to faint in public. I am afraid of getting a panic attack. I know this is ironic because having anxiety over this can cause a panic attack.

Sometimes I just have to think about what I want in life and not everything I am afraid of. Everyday is a struggle for me. I have a panic attack at least once a day, but I don’t let it stop me. I know I am better than that. And what I want is to get a degree and I am not going to let my fears stop me. 

And if I can do it so can you. You are so much stronger than you believe!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday

It’s time for Motivational Monday. New week, new challenges.

“Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars.” ~ Les Brown

I really like this quote because it tells you to always do your best. Work your hardest. I think some people are having problems with staying motivated in the autumn we are having. I have to say I am one of them, but then I motivate myself with thinking about my goals and why I need to keep pushing. I am not going to be where I am my whole life. My husband and I have big plans for our future. And I will not stop fighting for my dreams. And you should not do that either. 

So keep fighting for your dreams! And have an wonderful week, I know I will.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ November 5

This week’s Motivational Monday quote is:

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kindAlways.” ~  Ian Maclaren

This Motivational Monday quote is a reminder that we can’t see what everyone is fighting against. Some people can be fighting depression or maybe fibromyalgia. We don’t know. But we can be kind to each other.

I am so tired of people not being kind to each other.  It doesn’t take some much more energy to try and be nice. Give each other compliments. Build up one and another, instead of tearing down.

Be a good example for the children, for a better future. The world needs more love, not more hate.

Love, Nea
