Time...

Image
Last time I was talking about that beautiful quote. Now I realized just how much time I have with the new job - even when I come home later because I stayed over at work, either to talk with my friends from my old position or to get the help of a coworker for something on my new position, I still get home around 6 pm and I am amazed that... there are still 4 hours until 10 pm (and I don't even go to bed at 10 pm!!) and I could do so many things...

It is nice, to finally be out of the not enough time for the things I love... I am learning and studying and working and yes, I cannot do everything in one day, but I am living more in the moment and I do what I feel like (and sometimes laundry, because you have to *getsupfromthelaptoptodolaundry*). Okay, laundry is doing itself and I am back to my blog post, mellow music and banana milk.

This Saturday is pretty pleasant so far (and it's only 10 am). Yesterday I went to my ophthalmologist to get new glasses (I lost my own). Going to…

A Better Me

Image
I am trying to be a better me each day. For the past few weeks I worked a lot on many areas on my life, but now I am also working with a new motto:
One today is worth two tomorrows; what I am to be, I am now becoming. (Benjamin Franklin) Especially the first part of it - I am only now beginning to realize how important it is. For example, we got back from a wedding that was in a different city and we planned to do some cleaning tomorrow. But why wait? So I took half an hour and did some fast tidying up which will make the cleaning tomorrow easier.

It is a small thing but it matters. The thing is, now that I have a job with a normal schedule I can return to creating a routine and some habits that will help improve myself. It is a work in progress and I do believe that this is a thing I will have to work on quite a lot before I will declare myself content with my progress.

But I am willing to take the time. And most importantly I am learning from others and I let myself be motivated an…

Glass Half Full

Happiness or simply feeling content is an aspiration for most people, but far in my mind was something I believed I would never achieve. Yet for the past months... I've just been so happy, or mostly happy.  It is a weird situation and I talked about it before - it is completely new to me... and unexpected.

I still have grey days, naturally. And most often I experience moments when I feel like crap and low. Just recently I felt awful over something stupid. The main thing is, though, that now the glass is half full in spite of those moments when I feel down. Because of this I feel motivated and ready to grow even more and become a better person.

On the Mind #3

Image
It has come to that point where I realize that the house is in such a state that it has to be the only thing on my mind. Plus, this week I start on my new position so I cannot put too much on myself.

Quickly talking about last week: I tried searching for the birth certificate with no luck, and did nothing else from the Miscellaneous section, however I donated almost all the clothes from the balcony (and it's time to sort the other clothes again) and we replaced the electrical things - all the light fixtures are working!

As for the tidying up... it is a work in progress. I started from the boxes with papers and stuff we had under the bookcase because I was also searching for the birth certificate - now those are organized really lovely in two smaller boxes (and cute) from Pepco - which makes the under-the-bookcase-area look more pleasant and also leaves access to the socket (I should remember to buy an...extension cord for it). So this week we are continuing the tidying up!
