It has taken me a few days to get my inspiration up and running again, but here I am ready for another blog adventure. Despite the lockdown and working from home, I seem to be very busy! A few projects going on at the moment! Surprisingly!
I have been using the “one day more, one day less” for a while as I find it very useful. It also comes with a positive touch and a grateful approach. I will go further on this later on. I love making plans, whether it is a trip away, a new project or an exciting challenge. My mind is always bustling with ideas and thoughts, which become plans sooner or later. My imagination goes wild on a daily basis, plotting intrepid adventures for me to jump on! I can’t help it, the bold princess Merida keeps popping up whilst she whispers “let’s do it”! As a result, I usually find myself setting deadlines for my new daring goals.
Deadlines can easily turn into “dreadlines” as we tend not to be able to see light at the end of the tunnel, even when it is blinding. We get surrounded by the thick fog of doubts and lack of confidence along with that dreadful feeling of getting lost in the fears of not succeeding. By taking it day by day, the finishing line is reached swiftly. My “One day more, one day less” has helped me out numerous times, indeed. I try and make an effort not to just focus on the final target, setting up small goals along the way speeds the journey towards the end.
As I have pointed out earlier, my “one day more, one day less” has a positive and grateful side. Rather than complaining and moaning about not making any progress, I prefer to cherish it while getting into bed with a smile in my face. Happy of having make it through another day as well as having moved forward to my goal. One day more because I have had the chance to live it, remarkable gratitude. One day less because I have had the opportunity to get closer to the finishing line, striking positivity. One day more because I can get up in the morning and go for it, outstanding gratitude. One day less because I can move onto the next page, exceptional positivity.
This reminds me of one of my best friends, my creative magni, who is always so positive. It took me a while to be able to take in her optimistic approach to life. I guessed she was always thinking I wasn’t listening to her, but I just wasn’t ready. Being positive is a way of life but you need to be willing to be on the frame of positivity. Waking up in the morning smiling as you breath into a new day is priceless. Going to bed at night marveling at the day you have lived is treasured gold. I am glad she never gave up otherwise I wouldn’t be relishing what’s around me.
We are all stuck in this groundhog day feeling called covid19, it is tough, it is weird but it is what it is. So don’t forget to be positive and be grateful. One day less for better days to be here. One day more for….
Making new memories,
Sharing unique moments,
Gathering dazzling pictures,
A glimpse of our future!
