Bitchezz, I’M BACK!
Back from where? Nowhere, actually. I’ve been here all along, getting on with my life in Zagreb, focusing on getting through the winter days as it requires LOADS of my mental energy as ridiculous as it may sound to you. BUT. Spring is here!
I feel reborn, awake and energized after months of fogginess and lack of motivation, so you may expect new posts by me a little more often ;)
Actually, looking back now that it's over, I am pretty proud how I got through this winter. It wasn’t easy, but I fought and got up million times, keeping up with my self-care routine religiously which consisted of daily guided meditations, evening gratitude list, journaling stuff that happened and my feelings about the same, going to the gym at least 2-3 times a week, eating super healthy and staying hydrated. I know the last one may sound strange, like what the fuck water has to do with your mental well-being, but trust me - it makes a HUGE difference - at least it does for me. Guess I am much like a baby, getting all irritated and evil when lacking sleep, water or food, when I am too cold or too hot. "High-maintenance" they call it? Just exaggerating (mhm, or not?), I can adapt when I need to, but when I am at home I want to be comfortable and satisfy all my basic needs, traveling and adventure-times are again something else and call for some leaps out of our comfort zones, which is great. Also, I think it’s very important to pamper ourselves every now and then, show some appreciation and love to our bodies, minds and spirits the same way we do that to our loved ones, but I’ll get to that more in depth in a separate post.
I have to admit that I am pretty excited about the days that are coming my way, having some amazing trips planned that I am looking forward to and some kinda scary challenges/goals that I set to myself which are awesome as well - because, as I keep learning and relearning over and over again, there are no failures, only outcomes.
P.S. My lovely friend Ivana just started her blog, so check her out! She’s such an inspiring, powerful and strong woman that I really look up to and you can surely learn much from her as well!
Lots of love :**
