let's start a new week with a positive note, shall we? I do believe it's important to take a step back from time to time to appreciate the little things in life. I often get stuck in my little routine - getting up, going to work, having my morning coffee, working, then doing something in the evening and going to sleep. But when I think about it, some parts of my every day life are those little things that make me happy! So today I'll share some moments of last week that put a smile on my face on a Monday morning when I was writing this post.
having home-made waffles for breakfast on Sunday. There is something special about breakfasts in general and when they are home made with love, well that's just something that will forever make me very happy. Taking some time and effort to prepare an unusual treat in the morning is the definition of a perfect Sunday for me. Followed by a good cup of coffee and a walking around in the city.
going for a run a couple of times a week. It takes me so much effort to actually change into my gym gear and go for a run, you have no idea. However, each time I do it, I feel so good afterwards. It's not easy for me, I'm not the fittest person in the world, but it's kind of challenge and I feel proud every time after I finish my workout. Also, I believe it's good for the mind to switch off, listen to some music and think only about the right kind of breathing while you run.
taking time to read. I actually spent most of my last weekend reading and that was something I haven't done in a really long time. I have completely forgotten how good it feels to read and I finished this book in a week. Shocker, I know! Chilling out with a book - definitely my new favourite thing to do.
- watching Friends while it was raining outside. I often feel guilty for not doing anything & being lazy on weekends because I don't have much time after work yet sometimes it is just what you need. Saturday evening was horrible weather wise, it was raining cats and dogs outside, so it felt amazing to cozy up under a blanket and watch some tv series. I've never properly watched Friends, so it was very fitting to catch up. It made me laugh so much - no wonder it was so popular!
There you go, some happy moments of my week - I encourage all of you to reflect on yours and write comment about some of them below. Otherwise, see you later ! xx
