Motivation Monday

Good Morning! It’s Monday and time to kickstart a new week. I am getting closer and closer to my deadlines for my four essays, but I am working hard.

Today’s motivational quote is:

“A Goal should scare you a little bit and excite you a lot.” ~ Joe Vitale

I agree with this. Moving here to Edinburgh to study was scary but so exciting. And that was a really good thing.

Now I have to go and get ready for today’s tutorial and lecture. Have a wonderful Monday and a fantastic week.

Love, Nea

Motivation needed…

So I have been MIA for a while now. I have been stressing over my first assignment that I turned in last week. Then I have taken a much-needed break, from all.

On Friday my husband and I had a date night. We didn’t do anything special on Valentines Day, because I had a late class and I was so tired when I got home. So we made up for that on Friday instead. We went to Giant Lanterns of China on Edinburgh Zoo. It was amazing and breathtaking. I took so many pictures with my camera and we had a really nice time. It was so worth how tired I was when we got back to the apartment. And I would definitely go to that again if I ever got the chance. We already started talking about going back to the Zoo this spring to see the animals. I have heard nothing but good things about Edinburgh Zoo and I hope that all I heard is true. I am not really a fan of keeping animals in cages. There are like two Zoos in Sweden that I actually like, but that’s just because I know how well treated the animals are and I know that animals are not being treated like housepets, but kept wild.

On Sunday we took a two hours walk around the outskirts of Edinburgh. We got pretty high up and had an amazing view of Edinburgh. It was an amazing day to just relax and be in nature.

Today I have no lectures so it will be a study day. I have 4 essays left to write before spring break and a lot of reading. I have been awake now for over an hour, but I am letting my husband sleep in. He could really need it. I have been sleeping bad and having anxiety, and I know that he sleeps badly when I feel like this.

Now I am going to try and get something done and not just sit here on the couch. Have an amazing Hump Day! I will try and get better on updating the blog.

Love, Nea

Amazing start to the week

Today is a really good day. I had a really good day at campus and I feel so happy about that. I had some minor panic attacks and anxiety, but nothing that affected me in any major way. I just worked through it.

When I woke up this morning I was exhausted, after a night of very little sleep, and this because when I had gotten to sleep last night I woke up because there was a really high crashing sound. Both my husband and I investigated but could not find anything in the apartment. And this made me anxious, which is why I slept poorly. This morning we got the answer to what the noise had been. A roofing tile had come loose and crashed down right outside our front door.

Today I had a tutorial this morning, then two hours free and then 2 hours lecture. It was quite an interesting lecture and I think I have learnt something new at least.

Before we got home from campus I had a meetup with my study partner for an assignment and I think we will be able to do a fantastic assignment together.

Now I am going to continue working on my essay that is due in 11 days. I hope you have a magical week.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday – 4th February

It’s another Monday and it’s time for some motivation. I don’t know about you, but today I really need it. Today’s motivational quotes are:

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

And this important. Think new thoughts. Forget the past. Forget what has happened. It’s a new day. A new week. Take a deep breath and just keep on going. That is what I am going to do.

Have an amazing Monday and a wonderful week!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ 27th January

It’s time for a new Motivational Monday. I am starting week 4 studying here in Edinburgh today. I am still sick, but I am working as hard as I can.

Many people have had their ideas what I should do with my life. Friends (no longer friends), doctors, employment officer and so many other people. But it’s my life. And today’s quote is perfect if you need the push to live your life your way or if someone has opinions on your life!

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life” ~ Steve Jobs

Live your life how you want! And have a fantastic week!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday

So I was told when I got into University in Sweden, about 26 months ago, that I could never study full time. This was from a person whose job was to help me find a job and support me. I was so angry when I left that person office and I told my self that I should not listen to what had been said. That I am so much stronger then people believe.

And this is why today’s quote is:

“Think Big And Don’t Listen To People Who Tell You It Can’t Be Done. Life’s Too Short To Think Small.” ~ Tim Ferriss

Never listen to the negative people around you. Go after your dreams. You can do it! I believe in you!

Have an fantastic week!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday

I am still having a hard time here in Edinburgh, but I am not giving up. I am trying to do every day the best I can. Therefore I think today’s motivational quote is perfect for me right now.

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

And this is what I intend to do every day. I want to give it my very best and get these 5 months abroad a real chance.

I wish you all a fantastic Monday.
