Mindful Monday 18th November – My inspiration, dream, luxury, and mantra this week

Hi guys, how are you this week?

We had an awesome weekend in Sweden. My step-mom turned 60 and had rented a small castle to throw a dinner for 45 people. And what a party it was! The oldest person there was my step grandad Lelle, he is 90 next year and the youngest person was my little nephew Lukas 7 weeks. Lukas was sleeping in the sling on my sister’s belly all night and Lelle stood up and sang twice.

You can imagine the dance floor after dinner. 60-somethings got some pretty snazzy moves.

With all that fresh Swedish air in my lungs I’m ready to kick this week off with a Mindful Monday.

This is my inspiration, dream, luxury, and mantra this week;

My mantra this week  – “Little by little, day by day, what’s meant for me will come my way”. I try to have faith in that what is meant to be will be and that anything in my way is there for a reason.

My affirmation this week – “If I’m the smartest person in a room, then I’m in the wrong room”.To learn in life we have to be curious and constantly ask questions and listen to answers. And the best answers come from those smarter or just different than ourselves. So I have to step out of my comfort zone if I want to grow.

My goal this week –  We have an event at xInfluence, so my goal is to get everything sorted tomorrow.

My dream of the week  – I’m dreaming of a white Christmas..haha! but really, I’m hoping to spend Christmas in Sweden with my family. And if it would happen to snow, then that would be dreamy!

My focus this week  –  This week I’m focusing on my wardrobe. I need to do a new clear out. I had a massive one in January last year, and I have to make sure I keep on top of it and don’t allow clothes to build up again.

Mindful Monday - After a weekend in the Swedish fresh air, I'm ready to get back to work again. This is my inspiration, dream, luxury, and mantra this week;

The event of the week – I’m going to a really interesting event and sustainability talk tomorrow with Reve en Vert and Togetherband. Don’t forget to check out my stories tomorrow night.

My lesson from last week – Life goes in phases of hitting the gas and slowing down. Times of preparation and times of execution. I have to learn to accept when I’m having a slow week.

My little luxury this week – I bought luxurious Swedish licorice chocolate with me from home and I will have a few pieces after dinner every night.

My inspiration this week  – You know I’m all about positive thinking and try to have a positive outlook in life. I found this TED talk really helpful to deal with negativity.

What is your inspiration, dream, luxury, and mantra this week?

  1. I love this affirmation! It’s important to always be learning.

    1. I think once we stop learning, we stop living.
