At the moment, life is lovely. The weekend has been so good, thanks to people I care about. It has also helped that I did many activities I love. I made several songs, watched “New Girl”, ate proper food, exercised, read and did some scrapbooking. Now I have come to the end of the weekend, and even though I am ready for bed, I just wanted to write a tiny bit about the good things in life. I also want to remind everyone that doing more of what you like, will give you energy. Sometimes it will feel like this is not possible, for several reasons. It can be lack of time, lack of motivation or problems that block the road to fulfillment. But like the mental trainer Øyvind Hammer underlines, there is few excuses for not trying. He asks three questions every time motivation drops or something bad happens.
1. Would this be so bad internationally?
2. Could it be worse?
3. Would someone in the world like to exchange your problems with theirs?
I liked those questions.
Life can be hard, no doubt about it, but by trying to change the way we view things, we will have more mental energy to cope with the real catastrophes when they strike.
