I realised that if I make time for working on me, the root to success, I will be more stable, and slowly be able to work on all the things I want to accomplish in life. Sometimes I’ll still push myself to hard and that’s when I need to stop, breath in and do what makes me get back on the right track.
I finally have a couple of days off at the moment until my next semester starts that gave me time to be self-reflective. It is the first time in months that I haven’t had tension in my neck or in my gums. I have been pushing myself past my own limits to be successful in life. I’ve been juggling with too many things the past months, and I can’t believe that I managed to do it without it all snapped inside me.
Even though I push myself to do good I always remember to compliment myself, and I am sure that’s what keeps me going. When I look in the mirror on my way out, or before closing my eyes at night I’ll tell myself that I do good, and that I am impressive! Actually I don’t think about giving myself compliments anymore since it became a part of my everyday routine. If I had a long list of things that I needed to do that day, and only managed to do half of it at bedtime I would still compliment myself saying, that I did what I could do, and that it is expectable.
Keep reminding yourself
I found this jeweller (Frk Lisberg Jewlery) while scrolling on Instagram the other day. She is making beautiful jewellery with messages like the words I tell myself every day. Luckily she was interested in collaborating with me. These pieces of jewellery will keep reminding me: “I can do this”! Confidence takes time to build, and wont show up over night. You need to put in the effort to make it happen and work on it yourself. You need to plant the seed and start out in the small, and I believe that it will help you long term. Confidence is a root to future success in life, and to be able to run a busy life working on all the dreams you wish to come true. Show confidence but not arrogance. You will never be done working on your inner self, and a person who thinks that are just stupid in my eyes. You can always learn new things at any point in life. It is important to take control and find a balance that makes it all work in the long run. Keep telling yourself that you can do whatever you decide on doing!
