HAPPY ON A FRIDAY


 What a week again. This is my third week at the new job and I still struggled with my basic duties. Thursday was the first day when everything went 100% smooth, but as they (Winston Churchill) once said "If you’re going through hell, keep going". And that's exactly what I intend to do.
 I've even experienced minor anxiety going to work now because I'm so frustrated that I can't get it right every time. I've done guided morning meditations, got to work early so I'm in no rush, enjoyed mornings relaxing by the Hudson River Park with a cup of tea and just getting the day started right.
Yes, I've also sat at the bar to get rid of the anxiety at the end of the day. One drink and I feel a little better, but I know that's really not the way to go. Although meeting friends and getting something else to think about helps also. And Cowgirl does serve nice frozen margaritas during their happy hour...
My mom-in-law's house.
Wishing you all a happy weekend!
You were not born to be average, normal or typical
You were not born a carbon copy.
You were born unique, born to excel, born to manifest the glory of the universe in your authentic truth.
You are not weak.
You are stronger than you imagine, wiser than you know, and have vast powers that you have yet to actualize.
Stop playing small.
Be YOU. Tell your truth - now, today, this very moment.
Manifest your true self - not a poor reflection of your circumstance.
Don’t walk through this world unconscious of your greatness, sleep walking, surrendering your light to the bland grey around you.
You were born to be brilliant,
To be light,
To be fire.
Infuse your glory into this moment, into your choices, into your deeds, into the habits you create.
Consciously choose.
Choose your body through conscious consumption,
Choose your attitude, through conscious thought
Choose your destiny by being present right now – for remember: Mindful moments multiplied, totally transform tomorrows
Today choose integrity, choose discipline, choose joy, choose joy, choose joy.
Rejoice in your blessings AND, most importantly, know that EVERYTHING is a blessing.
And your blessings are rich soil.
So choose to grow into the boldest, proudest, most glorious version of YOU.
You were born for this.
-Cory Booker

  1. Hih, siellähän istuu tuttu tyttö sun vieressä baaripöydässä.

    Tsemppiä töiden kanssa. Ei kolmessa viikossa vielä kaikkea tarviikaan oppia! Don't worry! <3

    1. Kiitos Eveliina! Hei, tunnetko Mipen? Kivaa! Mulla on aina paineita oppia asiat heti, mutta oikeesti tassa on nyt niin paljon kaikkea uutta ja vaikeeta (payroll, accounting ja muuta vaikeaa numeroiden kanssa vekslaamista) etta ehka mun ei pitaisi olla niin ankara itseani kohtaan. Mutta kamalaa tama ahdistava tunne aina valilla. Ehka neljas viikko on parempi... Hauskat viikonloput teille! X

    2. Juu, muutaman vuoden takaa blogin kautta ja punkkasin sitten ohikulkumatkalla Mirvan kämpillä.... :D Hassua tää blogimaailma, mutta ihan loistavaa.

      Ja varmasti neljäs viikko on parempi, ei kannata olla tosiaan liian ankara! Muista kirjoitella asioita paperille! Mua ainakin auttaa se että mulla on oma nolo muistikirja jonka avulla teen kaikkia tarkkoja numerohommia kun olen tuurailemassa toisten hommissa. Ei niitä juttuja vaan voi muistaa kuin vasta sitten kun ne on tehnyt miljoona kertaa, vaikka ne lopulta olisikin tosi yksinkertaisia... ja sitten kun ei taas vähään aikaan tee niin ei muista enää mitään :D

    1. Thank you darling! I'm sure I'll be ok by the end of next week. Just being hard on myself as usual. But yeah, the neighborhood is amazing and makes me feel way better. Especially being so close to the water and the peaceful park. Enjoy your weekend lovebirds!
