Hello my lovelies, how are you?
I’m loving my work-life balance right now. I have just enough time at the office, at home on my own with my own influencer work and with Ace. He goes to nursery 2.5 days a week and has a nanny for 4 more hours. And in that time I have an almost full work life. Also, our house is finally tidy and clean again
…except for the hole in the wall… Ace pulled down one of our glass shelves last week. Luckily it didn’t hurt him, but it was glass everywhere and we now have 2 matching cute little holes in the wall.
When I closed my Swedish blog it felt like I was giving up on something I worked really hard for. I thought I would regret that decision, but if anything I have only felt like I should have done it sooner.
Now when I have time to do what I need to do and my balance finally is there, I’m enjoying blogging and creating a lot more. It was a hard thing to do, but the right thing for me.
I miss my Swedish followers of course, but I still talk to a lot of them/you on DMs on my Instagram ( I ALWAYS answer!)
This is my inspiration, dream, focus, and mantra this week;
My mantra this week – “I’m no longer available for things that make me feel bad”. I don’t know why I ever was, to be honest. These days as soon as something takes more than give, I’m out. There is no need to suffer, life is too short. It took me way to long to not only realize this but also put it into practice.
My affirmation this week – “I’m happy, relaxed and excited for the future”. I’m feeling really great at the moment and I want to keep riding on that wave. So I will remind myself as often as I remember.
My goal this week – Is to make it to Sweden on Thursday in one piece. I’m going on my own with Ace and Garth will come on Friday. It’s the first time Ace will have his own seat on the plane!
My dream of the week – I dream of spending more time with my family back in Sweden. I never feel like I get enough time when I’m there to check in even with my closest family. I have 4 younger sisters that all live away from home, divorced parents with separate lives, stepparents, former stepparents, a great-grandma, you name it. There is never enough time to really spend time with all of them.
My focus this week – Is to only take on 75% and do it all really well.
The event of the week – Going to Sweden on Thursday and my stepmom’s 60th Birthday Party on Saturday. They have hired a small castle for the event!
My lesson from last week – Don’t leave laptops on the table when toddlers are eating. My poor Mac book got a milk-infusion and my screen went black. Luckily the lovely people at the Apple store sorted it out in 20 minutes and charged my absolutely nothing. You can’t beat Apple!
My little luxury this week – I’m going to meet up with my lovely friend Masha on Wednesday for a coffee. He is an influencer too and I just love her Instagram account. We are going to my favorite no-waste café her in Clapham called “Common”.
My inspiration this week – The phrase “What if it’s not a problem?” stuck with me this week. I don’t know where I read it, but it changed something in my way of thinking. Is what I see as a problem actually even a problem? A lot of times it’s not! Life-changing!
What is your inspiration, dream, focus, and mantra this week?
