Motivational Monday

It’s Monday and its a new week. Yay. I have so many plans for this week and so much to do.

Today’s motivational Monday quote is:

You need to think about what you think about yourself. Get the negative thoughts out of your head. You are stronger then you think. You are amazing. And you can do it!

I wish you all an amazing Monday and a magical week! And please try and think better about yourself. I know it is hard, but you are better then you think.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday

I can hardly believe that today we been home for two whole weeks. And these two weeks have been a roller-coaster, and if I am being honest, the time before we moved home again was also a roller-coaster.. Maybe if I should be completly honest with myself and with you, I would have to say that the last year has been a roller-coaster. And I guess that is kind of what life is. I mean, it goes up and it goes down. Life is about the ride and trying to enjoy it.

This is why I thought that this quote is good for this weeks Motivational Monday:

Sometimes you just need to see where the road takes you. I mean it could be a really good place.

Now I just want to wish you all an amazing Monday and week. I have a lot to do this week at home. And in a while I will have some exciting news to share with you.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday – May 27th

It’s Monday and I a bit stressed over all the packing my husband and I need to do before we start our journey back to Sweden in a couple of days. I am looking forward to moving back home to Sweden, but I will miss Edinburgh and Scotland very much. We are definitely going to come back here.

I need to stop stressing and I found this quote when I was searching google and I thought it was really nice and suitable for me right now (it’s not really that motivating):

“For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.“ – Lily Tomlin

I like this quote so much. It speaks to me and I feel like if I try and relax and enjoy my last couple of days here in Edinburgh it might help me. I know I will finish packing in time. We are two people that can do it together. It’s not like we live in a big mansion, but a small apartment. Yes, I have bought a lot of stuff, but we are taking a car home, we got the room.

So today, I hope we can take the bus into the city, for the last time, and kind of say good bye for now. It’s kind of bitter sweet, but I miss my dogs and my family. And we will be back.

I wish you all an amazing Monday! And take time to slow down and smell the flowers!

Love, Nea

P.S. I will write one or more posts about our trip in the Highlands, but it will probably be when we get home to Sweden.

Motivational Moday – 6th May

It’s Monday again and I am kind of stressed. Tomorrow I have my two exams. I do not feel prepared even though I have studied as hard as I can. I have cold that just does not want to disappear and it’s starting to make me into me into a bitch. I want to complain about it but then I talked to a friend and she helped me. It sucks being sick, but there are so many people how are dealing with so much more then a cold.

So today I am am focusing on being grateful for my life and how far I have come. And tomorrow I will give it my best on the exams and that just have to be enough. I can’t do much more than that. And at least I have tried. At least I have given it my all.

Days like this I remember this quote:


“I never dreamed about success, I worked for it.”

that Estée Lauder said. I have worked hard to be where I am today. And I have not given up. And I won’t give up.

So if you are having a rough day or just needs some motivation anyway keep fighting. Work hard for what you want. You can get it. I mean, look at me… I am living my dream. Studying abroad even though I live with panic attacks, anxiety and depression. If I can do this, you can do whatever you want. We are all so much stronger than we think.

Now I am going to get some more studying done! Have an fantastic Monday!

Love, Nea

8th of April – Motivational Monday

It’s Monday again and I have Spring Break. This week my mother, nephew, brother and sister-in-law is coming for a visit and I am looking forward to it. There are so much I want to show them here in Edinburgh. And I have missed them very much.

This weeks Monday motivational quote is:

I feel that this is an important thing to think about. You can do what ever you set your mind to. Because you are the only limit in your life. So please don’t limit yourself. Look at me. I am living with anxiety, panic attacks and depression, but I won’t let that limit my life. My dream has been for many years to study abroad and now I am doing it. Granted that it’s later in life than I had planed on. But I am doing it. And If I can go after my dreams, then I know that you can to.

So have an amazing Monday and a magical week.

Love, Nea

18th March – Motivation Monday

It’s Monday and here in Edinburgh the birds are singing outside the window. Its kind of cloudy, but that’s okay. At least its not snowing or raining like it did this Saturday. It feels like spring is here to stay and that is one thing that motivates me.

Today I only have one lecture. And I need motivation to go to it. I am still tired from the hectic week I had when I finished to essays in the course of a week. I think I kind of drained myself. But this week I am going to really start on the next essay. And the theme of the essay is something that I find really interesting so I hope it will be more fun and relaxing to write.

Today’s motivational quote is not really a quote. It’s more of a mantra that I found on Pinterest a while back.

I am grounded.
I am loved.
I am enough.

I don’t know where it comes from and or anything, but it helps me in my darkest days. And I wanted to share it with you. I say this over and over in my head some days and it gives me the motivation to keep going. Keep fighting. Because I know that I can do it and that I am so much stronger then I think.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday and a fantastic week!

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
