18 Goals For 2018! #2

Happy Monday lovebugs,

I hope you had a great weekend. This weekend B and I decided to have a date day on Saturday and dedicate Sunday to work. Saturday we went to Namco Funscape to have some fun! I will admit it’s a bit pricey but it is really a fun day out and both of us needed to feel like kids for a day haha! Sunday was spent on planning content for both the blog and my Instagram account and I did manage to sneak in a cheeky gym sessionWhat were you up to? Anything exciting? 🙂

I’ve mentioned again and again, that I never really was a fan of New Years resolutions. Mainly because I don’t get the New Year – New Me – like why do you want a new me ? Why not just improve yourself instead of changing yourself? You’re good enough! Another reason is, that people always say something like “I’ll never again…” or “From now on I’ll always..”. I think you have to be careful with the use of never and ever when it comes to resolutions or goals. Because when will you know you’ve reach your goals, when it includes never and always? However I did decide to make a few goals for my self, you can re-read the 4 goals from last week,  and below is another 4:

Be present!
I started thinking about multitasking. Why is that a good skill to have ? How about being focused on one thing at a time, if I’m with friends I should be with my friends, don’t have that little black box (= my phone) in my hand and scroll down my Instagram feed, because to be honest the only thing I’m missing out on whilst doing that is missing out on quality time with my friends, boyfriend, family who ever I might spend time with. And that’s a real shame. Don’t get me wrong I love my phone and I can spend hours on Instagram, but I wanna focus on that when that’s what I’m focusing on, and focus on being there when I’m with my friends etc, otherwise I’m there but not really. Do you know what I mean?

.. Less mess and stress less!
I really need to de-clutter my room, I have so much mess which I really don’t need. The other day I found a calender from 2012, okay okay I might have saved that because of the Photos of Ian Sommerhalder on it, but still! Come on Sara! What do I need a 2012 calendar for in 2018? I also found my old Volley Ball t-shirt with like 12 tiny holes in it, it’s time to go babe! I have a feeling that tidying up my mess will help my stress levels, because at times those levels are way out of hand and often I just stress about small insignificant things. Regarding the stress I’m also teaching myself that I can’t control everything, even though I like to think so, whether it’s about a goal I’ve set for myself, or something happening with work or/and outside work. Most of the time we really can’t control the situations we are in, so instead I just have to roll with them in the best way possible. 

.. Get outside my comfort zone!
Say yes! This year I want to go outside my comfort zone and takes risks. I think it’s extremely important to make those changes in your life because they can potentially lead to real personal growth and who know, maybe you get to know a few things about yourself to eh?

.. Appreciate the little things!
Most of you might already have read my Friday Gratefulness posts, so you already now I’m all about being grateful for not just the big things but also the small things. And yes, you’ll definitely see more of those posts. I believe it so so important to appreciate everything coming your way. I’m forever grateful for my life, my family, my boyfriend, my friends, having a roof over my head… the list goes on. I want this to be a life long goal and not just a thing for 2018, actually all of the things on my list probably are life long goals and I wanna make sure I hit every single goal, but I will not fixate on them, because that isn’t healthy and will not help on staying present and stress less, so although I’ll do anything to hit those goals I don’t wanna fixate on them and I’m not gonna feel crappy if I don’t reach some of them, because it’s all about the little victories after all.

 

The next 5 goals will be up on Monday the 22nd, so you don’t have to wait much longer. Please feel free to add your goals in the comment section, it’s always nice getting to know you ladies(and gents)!

Happy #PinkWednesday babes,

As I was writing in Mondays post one of my new goals is to go gym 4 times a week, but I do wanna look nice at the same time. At the moment I’m wearing super old Nike running leggings, so worn out they’re turning see through. NEED TO SORT OUT ASAP! Therefor I thought this weeks OWWWP post would be about active wear, because who wouldn’t feel pretty on the treadmill wearing pink? 🙂

18 Goals For 2018! #1

Happy New Year lovelies!
This is my first post of the year, can you believe it?

I’m not normally much for New Years and the whole New Years resolutions, And before every one starting to say, what I normally do, “Yuck why make any NY resolution, why not just start when ever you want to?” then know that something happened inside me the last few days of 2017 and I’m more motivated than ever, motivated about progression, being the best version of myself stop having the nagging feeling of feeling stuck! Do you know what I mean?

No progression without goals, so here’s my 18 goals for 2018:

.. Travel more.
I know I know, I say this all the time, but this year I’m serious. The matter of fact 2,5 trips has already been planned. WAUW what’s going on with this organized new me? :p ! First of, in February B and I are going to …. (I won’t tell you just yet, as he won’t know until we’re in the airport. He knows we’re going somewhere though, as it’s his Christmas present from my family and I, he just don’t know where) for 3 nights and I’m so excited!, in March I’m going to Denmark for our family weekend tradition and as of January 1st I started putting my coffee money(the money I normally spend on coffee) aside for my NYC for New Years Eve, I might go alone or someone might join – we’ll see. However I need loads of tips for NYC and more of plans for this trip will come in a post later this year.

.. Have four training sessions a week of at least and 1 hour.
It’s no secret I’ve been struggling to lose weight and I’m still trying to. I think the main reason is finding the motivation, because apparently it wasn’t motivation enough not feeling great in my own body. How the brain works sometimes huh?! But right now I’m more motivated than even, so it’s now I need to do it! It’s going rather well, if I can say so myself. Not making up excuses for not going, actually scratch that, I am making up excuses but I’m not falling for them haha! 

.. Make my bed every morning!
 So far, so bad :p

.. Read a book a month.
January’s book is “How To Become An Overnight Success” and I must say Maria Hatzistefanis is killing it writing this book. Also on the list is “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*Ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life“, “Papmaché Reglen“, “#Girlboss“, “The Little Black Book” and “How To Be Parisian: Whereever You Are“.  I’m in need of inspiration for more book, both fictional and non-fiction, so please feel free to comment what you’re reading right now or any recommendations you might have. 

What are your New Year goals, do you have any or do you hate those things?
Next 4 resolutions will come in the next post on Monday the 15th! 🙂

Lately #3

Geez Louise (Yeah I don’t know why I’ve started saying that) I haven’t done one of these in ages, guess we have a lot of catching up to do 🙂

Lately I have been:

1. Having dinner in Yurt Cafe London for the amazing chefs behind KiwiandRoos very first Supper club – The venue and food was amazing – we got multiple dishes including booze, starters and dessert. Yum!

2. Celebrated B’s birthday. We’re normally going big on the celebrations like when we had our anniversary – but B doesn’t like celebrating his birthday, so instead we did exactly what he wanted and went to get his favourite meal –  Pie and Mash  – and saw Kingsman “The Golden Circle” in Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel – to those who haven’t been to Genesis yet, it’s worth a try if you’re looking for something cheaper but don’t want to downgrade your standards – they have pretty cool art and stuff too. Oh and I can totally recommend the movie too 🙂

4. Saturday we went to do Zip lining with Zip World London and I was a bit disappointed to be honest. Haven tried Go Ape I hoped for a bit more than just a 2 second ride – It was so much fun though! I absolutely love doing crazy adventurous stuff, like when I went indoor skydiving – granted.. Maybe not as crazy and adventurous as proper skydiving but you get the point..

5. Followed by a lovely Brunch at The Fire Station Waterloo and a walk by the River Thames.

 

What have you guys been up to lately?

I’ve earlier written about not just appreciating big events but also the little things. Therefor every Friday I’ll be posting one or more things that I’m grateful for the following week. This I believe is the way forward to a happier every day.

First and foremost – I’m so sorry about me just stop posting from one day to another. In stead of coming up with any excuses, I’ll just tell you that I’ve been very busy and finally found a new place to call home.

This very moment I’m at my parents house in Denmark next to me is Viva, my little furry best friend – my dog, and I’m so very grateful to have the opportunity to always being able to travel back home and visit my family whether it be for a weekend or a week, like I am this time. My plan is to do as little as possible and finish up a few of those blog post I have saved in my drafts. At this moment there is 35 pieces, some finished, some only just begun so trust me, it’s not because I don’t know what to write about..

And don’t worry I’ll write a post, so you guys know what I’ve been getting up to lately. What have you guys been up to ? 🙂

“It just sounds really lovely with your family. It’s so unbelievably lucky, that you all have each other even though you don’t see each other every day” a friend said over a pint the other day. And I couldn’t do anything but agree with her. To think that we are four siblings, two sets of parents and even more grandparents, that all agree on that we are each other’s favourite. That we can, as we say in Denmark, “hygge”, no matter if we’re just a few or all of us together. Each year in March we all skip in and rent a massive house where we just hang out and enjoy each others company.

This she said after we had talked about what my plans were in September and I told her, I’m going home to see my family. So well known that in September I have a massive family gathering, I’m comfortable and extremely grateful leaning back on the sofa with my Soy Latte, that I’m also grateful for.

Are you guys family orianted? And what are you grateful for this week?

I’ve earlier written about not just appreciating big events but also the little things. Therefor every Friday from this day onward I’ll be posting one or more things that I’m grateful for the following week. This I believe is the way forward to a happier every day.

This week I’m particular grateful for my crazy, beautiful and cool friends. They’re doing a great job, just being them self. They’re great at taking care of me and vice versa and I think we all suit each other quite perfectly!

What are you guys grateful for ?
