The Monday Checklist

 Now when I’m back from holiday, I think it’s time to resume our weekly Monday list again. I love to summarize the week that has gone and to plan for the one ahead. It makes me define my goals and find my path. 

I have a whole bunch of fun stuff coming up soon. I will be able to reveal the first one at the end of the month, I think you will like it. It has to do with Sweden so I will be there that week. I’m very excited!

And on a completely different note, if you have a little bubba in the same-ish age as Ace, don’t forget to check out my Instastory from today. I’m cooking his favorite dish and sharing the recipe.

The mantra of the week  – I am the sky, everything else is just weather. If I know who I am and what I stand for then all the rest can come and go. The sky is there no matter what happens underneath.

This week’s affirmation – I deserve all the good that is coming my way and I have confidence in my own abilities. Why do we sometimes doubt ourselves even though we know that we both deserve and can handle all the good things coming our way? We all need to get better at believing in ourselves and not allowing negative self-talk to get us down.

The goal of the week –  To start planning for fall. I’m going to take an hour or two to just sit down and make an action plan, look at my dreams, goals and all the important events coming up. It’s really important to have a little check in with ourselves now and then, to sort all the thoughts, make a plan and motivate ourselves.

Dream of the week – To get to work in-between Sweden and London. I love to live here, but I want to spend more time back home. I wouldn’t mind the traveling, as long as it’s for fun and motivating work.

This week’s vision – Ace comes running down the stairs in our big house here in London. He is 16, a lot taller than me and asks what’s for breakfast. The 4 of us sit down and eat together before we all go our separate ways to work and school. A snapshot from a regular day in a happy family.

The focus of the week – The future, especially work and career. I’m going to make some choices and take a few big steps. I’m ready and excited.

The event of the week – Nanna is visiting from Sweden! She is Ace’s godmother and one of my favorite people in the world. Noone gives as great advice as Nanna do, she is a straight shooter and I really appreciate it. She used to live in London, but these days she is back in Sweden again and we don’t get to see her as often as we would like to.

The lesson from last week  – Always do m own research and push for what I thin ks right. Saturday was meant to be my last visit to the hospital to empty out my breast abcess. And I had such a dissapointing visit . Not only did I get dismissed like a naughty child, I also didn’t get the abscess drained since it’s now to solid… after trying to get appointments for I don’t know how long. Thanks, NHS!

This week’s everyday-luxury – It might not seem like a luxury, but every night after ACe goes to be I walk olive on my own for 30 minutes. I love to just get to go outside in the sunset, breathe some fresh air and be alone with my thoughts.

Inspiration of the week – If you havent heard if Simon Sinek, then I think you should ceck this clip out. Be warned, you might get stuck clicking on another one… and one more.
