How to add more inspiration to your life in 2018 and make magic …

I am always trying to be 100% honest with you guys and truth is during my Christmas/NYE break I somehow lost the ability to produce written content. I wouldn’t say that I was all lazy during those days but rather that most of the time I was involved in getting done ‘straight forward’ activities such as ‘wrap presents’, ‘prepare documents for tax consultant’, ‘answer this e-mail’, ‘clean apartment’ etc. And these activities were anything but creative or stimulating in terms of inspiration.

Are you taking blogging seriously?

Some days ago I was having dinner with my Mom. It was one of those very seldom evenings when it’s just the two of us and we can finally enjoy some mother-daughter time and talk about all these girly topics. Naturally, we started to talk about blogging (sorry, Mom, I’m just too obsessed 😉 ) when she dropped the statement “I would have never thought, that you’ll keep up blogging for so long. I thought you’ll make 2-3 outfit shots and then you’ll be fed up with it”. I actually wasn’t at all surprised about her opinion looking back at myself when I was still a kid/teenager.

4 Habits that will make you live a better life

When I was still in university (which honestly seems like a decade ago, boohoo!) I used to maintain a bunch of unhealthy habits. And with unhealthy I don’t necessarily mean those habits involved doing something that was potentially harming my health. I am rather talking about things I did that were harming the likelihood of me having the life I would consider a good life.

The 1 Thing I had to learn about Time

I remember very clearly how a friend threw these words at me: “Jecky, you have more ideas than possibilities”. Back then I was still a teenager who was way too influenced by American TV shows and glossy magazines, imagining that one day she would live a life just as glamorous as the one on O.C., California. And while back then my teenage friend was clearly hinting at financial possibilities, with the years I realized that there is one other resource – much more valuable and scarce – that is holding me back from realizing all the ideas I have in mind: Time.

Is it okay to feel unmotivated?

Let me be 100 % honest with you guys: the last week was anything but a good week for me. I felt uninspired, drained and most of all unmotivated to change anything about that stage. I get so many messages from people asking me how I manage to regularly publish high quality content on my blog that I somehow felt like I had mastered motivation – at least it lifted me up as much as deciding to write a weekly blog post on that topic 😉 Truth is, instead of feeling all encouraged, driven and at the top of my productivity game, I found myself in a self-hatred stage of procrastination and staring into the nothingness instead of getting shit done.

What I gave up for blogging

“We should do this more often again” – the words of an old girlfriend of mine. “Next year, we should all go on a week’s holiday together, relax and be offline” – are the plans of my fiancé’s family. What sounds like a relaxed planning of free time to spare, often gives me a really uncomfortable feeling. An uncomfortable feeling, because I have made a decision for myself not too long ago.
