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.
”Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.” ~ 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.
For this week’s Motivational Monday I have chosen this quote:
“She needed a HERO, so that’s what she became.”
I don’t know who said it, but it struck a chord in me when I first read it on Pinterest. If you are like me you have grown up reading fairytales where the Prince always saves the girl and the day. But that is not real life. Women don’t need a man to survive. I think we all need to be our own hero from time to time. And with this, I don’t say that we shouldn’t take help from men or other women. All I am saying is that we can be our own hero. We are stronger than you think. And we can do more than you think.
You are the Hero of your own story! Remember that.
