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!
Tomorrow is a new year. And for this Motivational Monday I thought this quote was a good one:
“A new year A new start And way to go!”
And as some of you now, I am moving with my husband to Edinburgh in a couple of day. I am going to study for a semester on Heriot-Watt University.
I am so excited. This is a big step for me and in my darkest moment I didn’t think I could do this, but I have the support from my husband. And my family of course. So I am really motivated right now. My emotions are all over the place.
But think of all you can do in this new year. Make it a new start. Don’t think about the past. Focus on the future.
Yesterday I had my last day at campus, here in Sweden before I go to Edinburgh. It has been a hard week so far. And I am so thankful for my friends at campus for helping me through this tough week. I think that it’s more real now that we are moving. Moving away from my dogs, my family and my friends. It has always been like months away, and now its just a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to studying abroad, but I know I will miss everyone at home.
I have always dreamed about studying in another country. But with my depression, anxiety and panic attacks I never thought I would be possible. Now, thanks to my wonderful husband’s support and the help from my family I am finally going.
I know that I am stronger than I think. I know I can do anything I want to do and I also know that my dogs are going to be well taken care of while I am gone. And this is a quote that I try to remember.
I missed posting a few of my planned Christmas Countdown post this week, just because I have had these bad days. But I will post them soon.
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!
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!
