Motivation Monday

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.

Motivation Monday

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.

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to decorating your living room for fall

Even though I might call myself all equipped for fall when it comes to my wardrobe, there’s one part of my life I’ve been quite lazy with so far in terms autumn make-over: our apartment. I can just remember so well how motivated I was, when we just moved it – literally visiting interior shops on a daily! However, that first excitement faded away quickly and I found myself living with the same decoration (this exact one) for three years! That’s why when TK Maxx asked me whether I’d like to restyle my home for autumn I was like: You bet, let’s do this! Clearly I used that chance to create a new interior inspo blog post for all you girls out there feeling just like me when it comes to changing your interior 😉 The lazy Girl’s Guide to decorating your Living Room for Fall!

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.
