To all those who experienced January as a long ass year, congratulations! You’ve made it to February! As you might have known, I had some goals set for last month. Phew, where to begin? 24 Books goal Well for starters, I didn’t manage to read two books last month. I did manage however to finish one, which I also wrote about. Currently reading book #2: The little black book by Otegha Uwagba. In all honesty, had it been in English, I’d finished long time gone. It’s not the most complicated or thickest book. I just have a harder time getting through books written in Dutch. But we’re still only in February! Can I still reach the 24 books by the end of 2019? We’ll see… How did it go with the working out, you ask? *Scratches head* I haven’t been on the mat for a week…Yes, today it has been a week. Which means I haven’t done yoga nor any other exercises for a week. Meaning, the muscles are shrinking bit by bit again. I will have …

We work and deserve a bit of happiness everyday. If we, don’t we’ll just get dragged along in the slums of our daily lives. Treating yourself is a form of self-love. And if you don’t love yourself, who will? So, let’s look into the ways we can love ourselves a little.
In case you ever felt like whatever you are doing has no use, you’re not alone. But allow me to remind you why you are making a bigger impact than you might be aware of.
My 10 days off are over. I’m not gonna pretend I’m glad it’s over and I can get back to work, because I’m not. And that has nothing to do with me being lazy, but with other factors I will get into later on.
So what all did I find out about myself during this 10 day break?
We sometimes do things that make us feel good, but will have others rolling their eyes at us. Thing is though, we don’t live to make others happy. If whatever it is you wish to do doesn’t hurt anyone else, do it. With that said; here are a 10 things that are absolutely okay!
Ah, the feel of lying back in bed and writing till I feel like stopping is so liberating. Especially when the clock hits 12 o’ clock and I can add a glass of wine to the experience. As much as I’d love to have mornings like this on a daily base, that’s not my reality. In reality I wake up every morning at 5.30 am and leave home at either 6.15 or 7.15. I commute 3 hours and work 7,5 hours a day, 5 days a week. Every day I complain. Not today though. Despite today being Sunday and being well aware that’s easy as it is to complain about going back to work tomorrow, I should consider myself blessed. Because at least I have a job. Perhaps not the job of my dreams, but it does help my dreams becoming a reality. I am able to do the things I wasn’t able to before. It allows me to do one of the things I love most: shopping, have cocktails with my loved ones… Hell, …
As a little kid, the movie Gremlins was one of the movies that gave me nightmares till at least 16. Still I named my pup Gizmo (R.I.P). So, when my brother-in-law got me this shirt, I got super excited. Because I could now wear the image of the creature I named my baby after.
There are always people, who despite all the goodness there is to experience, still find the bad in a good day. Some refer to them as Negative Nancy or Pessimistic Pete. Whatever you call them, they always know how to suck the fun out of your day.
