Writer’s Log

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing okay ❤

After lots of thinking, planning and lots of journaling, I came to the conclusion that I don’t like where my life is heading. I basically stopped creating in any form and rarely even writing. I stopped writing/editing, reading, drawing, playing music… and I focused all my energy on helping my family, my friends and basically stopped everything else. I am telling you the complete truth so you’ll know where I am coming from and understand where I want to be. And maybe even go through this journey with me.

I miss our connection and I want to bring it back so we will always have this community and the outlet to seek help and try to overcome life’s obstacles together.

So here it comes… Are you ready?

I am starting a huge series here at Coffee n’ Notes, that will focus on a few major things in my life that I want to change and the main goal is to be able to create again:

  • Create more – Writing, blogging, drawing, doodling, or anything else I want to create.
  • Meditate every day twice a day, and to slowly be able to de-stress and breathe better.
  • Consum less tv, and social media.
  • Declutter more, our home and lives. Living with less clutter and chaos has become one of my main goals this year, after writing.
  • Eat better, and taking care of my mind and body.

I’ve been sick for almost 2 months and due to this illness I became vegan again and you know what? I feel so much better. I know it’s just been two weeks but I eat better food and I feel much better than before.

I spoke to a specialist who said that due to my none stop stressful living, I get sick a lot and I can do even more harm to my body and to my mind, so I must change and that is what I working on right now.

This will be hard for me but I need this change in my life, I can’t give myself to others as much as I do, I am burning up all my energies and at the end of the day, I’m left with nothing. I need to trust this process and this journey to lead me where I need to be so that I will be able to be the better version of myself and by doing so I will be able to help my family even more.

I want to do the small things every single day that will slowly build these habits I want to build.

So… Every day from today 14.4.19 until 6.6.19 I will post about my progress and how I find my creativity again ❤

I have tons to do with my mom this month and on May but as I said before I need to find my way in all this chaos. I will try to keep it short and to the point in my next posts.

I hope this series will not be spam in your reader and if so I am sorry in advance, but this is something I have to do for myself and share with the world these moments… good and bad and how I truly going through things in my life.

I hope you don’t mind coming along with me in this weird journey but even though this will be hard for me (really hard, I can tell you now) hopefully, it will lead me to where I need to be and create the books I was meant to create

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Review
4 Stars

I usually don’t read self-help books, but I do try to read things outside my comfort zone and because we are getting closer to 2019, I needed every help I can get so after I heard so many good things about this book, I decided to buy it… And I am so happy I did.

This book didn’t have many original ideas, and the author told me things I probably already knew… However, it was still a nice reminder of what I need to do and sometimes it is nice to have a good reminder a push even if it comes out from a book.

As I try to surround myself with things that will be a constant reminder of what I want and how I want to achieve it, I loved reading this book because of that… A great reminder and sometimes if we know something we really don’t get it, lol. Some things just clicked really good in this book and I plan to read this book again in 2019 with fresh new eyes 😉

I mostly felt with all the things I highlighted that it was like a reminder post-it note or a smart cheat sheet for you to always pick into and plan your goals smarter and achieve them faster.

I got this book in an ebook and so I highlighted a few lines and paragraphs that I knew will stick with me for a while…

“If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse”.

“If you want to live a life you’ve never lived, you have to do things you’ve never done”.

This is beyond true and correct for me, and I just realized that while reading this book and since then… So much have changed and still is changing ❤
For me, this book was more like a push in the right direction, I needed it a lot 😀
