Challenge yourself!

source

If your read my blog, you probably know that our life has been hard lately. Lack of love, time, money, space...
For a long period we have been quite miserable. We were constantly thinking about all those things we didn't have and how everything would be better if...if...if...
What I realised was that the problem was inside us! We thought that if we had more, we would be happier! So wrong! Materials can't buy happiness. We need to be grateful for what we have, sympathetic for everyone around as. We need a healthy body, a healthy brain and a heart full of love to thrive!
Since I realised that, I have been trying to find ways to make our life better.

My biggest problem was that I am surrounded by people who are not willing to give up their bad habits and negative emotions. I seriously can't remember when was the last time I spoke to a trully posititve person. It's understandable, with the conditions in our country. But I refuse to only feel doom and gloom! 
Being happy isn't hard, neither has to coast money (thanks to the internet)!

Want to know what my plans to be happier are...?



Interacting with positive people-do positive stuff!
A few weeks ago, one of the creators of Happify , contacted me and asked if I wanted to be one of their pioneers. I happily accepted, got started and fell in love with it! Happify is a usefull tool that helps you be a more positive, balanced and happy person! It encourages you to take daily(or as much as you want) activities and offers knowledge all related to happiness! I swear this thing works! My experience so far is more than positive...I love it! This site is still in beta but I can invite 5 people! So, if you can't wait contact me for details!

Being a yogi!
Since I remember myself, I have been doing some kind of excercise. From ballet to swimming and many other activities have kept my body fit and healthy.  My latest obsession is yoga, of course. I know it's hip, but I love how amazing it makes me feel. After a yoga class, I remember having this unique feeling of total relaxation and  great power at the same time!
After I had my son, I started doing yoga at home by myself. I quickly lost my motivation. It only lasted a few weeks. I desperately wanted to start doing yoga again, even just a few times a week, although I prefer practicing daily. Actually, this is one of my 22 before 22 list's goals (I secretely knew it would never happen). I was lucky enough to find Bettina from Little Old Souls who started this challenge. A group of ladies practising with me (from their own home, at their own pace) and a facebook group where we can share our experiences and help each other...well, it works for me! A couple of hours ago I finished my second practise and I feel a-w-e-s-o-m-e! You can join too...it's never too late!

Reconnect with my love!
Having a baby is a challenge for every couple. But for us, it was much more. Not because of the baby but for everything that happened to us since he came. The difficulties have broke us down. Way too many times we have thought about breaking up. And we're still here. Living with my parents, having almost no privacy, not enough money but we are fine! Not perfect, but fine! We love each other so much and maybe for the first time we are both really trying to repair our relationship. I have a lot to share about it, but not yet. Maybe in a later post!

Once again my life proves that the harder you work the luckier you get! I feel so positive for our future! Things are still hard, but for some reason I have an extremely optimistic view for the days that are coming! My new habits have enhanced the way I see things now! Man, I feel good!

What are you doing to be better?

  2. I love the honesty in this post. We have been striving towards an inner peace to feel fulfilled, not material things. The Happify thing sounds interesting. I requested an invite with them on Facebook, hopefully I'll get my invite code soon!

  3. Thanks for stopping by. Honestly, I think you could use half the crumble amount and it would still be just as good. Heck, it would be good without the crumble. I am going to add blackberries to this next time also. It is really a delicious dessert.

  4. I love this post! I was asked to be a happify pioneer too and I signed up. I have to be honest, I haven't done one activity yet. After reading this post I think I am going to take it more seriously now. I know how you feel being around negativity that isn't willing to change. I am glad you can find the energy to be positive and take control of your life! You inspire me! ♥

  5. i wrote a post almost identical to this a few months after my son was born. we were going through the motions, living on next to nothing in a tiny box, and it was dull. i think it's normal after big life changes to feel the need to reconnect. so we do. i love your positive look on it all. ;)

  6. I'm new to your blog, but I had to comment on this post because it's very similar to our lives at the moment! we have been struggling in many areas and it's almost broken us...it's hard to hang in there during the rough times. but I really do believe we can make our lives better by being positive about it :)

    1. Sure we can! I have noticed that since I adopted this kind of view things have gotten better in my life...not huge changes, but things are definitely better!
