Lalala, Life is one of them things, when each person has a good day and a bad day every so often, And I know for sure, each of us doesn’t choose when these days happen. I often wake up feeling super motivated and ready for the day ahead, then other times where I can’t physically get out of bed, and I just want to sleep. (Yes this maybe due to female hormones, but it’s the truth, right?) Sometimes I am so motivated to eat super healthy and have the mindset of exercising every day, and other days, I want to eat as much crap as I want, and sit and watch Netflix over and over again, and not say a word to anyone. Who else feels me?
I always find that having plans in the near future always helps to keep me going, for example, a little trip away with Chris (Our recent trip to Amsterdam will be on my blog soon) or a trip to the cinema & wagamama’s with my mum one evening? Beer with my dad & a curry with my family, cocktails with my girls, or even a booked holiday? Well for me, sure thing all these things help, however my major motivation in life at the moment is Moving to OZ in September for a year! However, before this major move happens, there’s so much going on in my life. Currently in my 4th year at university, and the pressure to do well is unbelievable, I am at uni’s on Tuesdays for 8 hours, and this long day is a killer, along with my commute, however, there’s only another 10 weeks left of uni (I CAN DO THIS). I certainly don’t even think about going to the gym after this day, but it’s something I need to start doing to look after my body/health and even my mental mind. Going to the gym can be super relaxing, and focusing solely on yourself. It’s about getting out of your daily routine, whether that be, getting in from work and getting straight on the sofa, instead put on your gym clothes and try a new gym class, or message your friends and see if they fancy a coffee/cocktail? Make each evening in the week spontaneous and exciting, that way, you live each day to the fullest. You’ll have no regrets that you’re getting stuck in a rut and life is boring. I completely understand that we all need to work to gain money, and we all like to try and save, but honestly, we need to live for each day and make the most of every day, as we have no clue what’s around the corner.
Life can be the same each and every day – ONLY IF WE ALLOW IT TO BE, however, this can feel like such a boring routine, uni, work, gym, eat, sleep…. If we don’t fit in the things we enjoy, well what’s the point ey? Something my dad always taught me was ‘ Work hard & Play hard’ which I certainly try and live by but sometimes it proves difficult. I try and tell myself that I live in this bubble and that my daily routine is a part of this bubble, however now and again (even once a week), by doing something different and ‘trying to burst the bubble’ helps so much. I’m only 22, but already I see myself getting stuck in this bubble, hence why for me graduating and travelling, is so so close to me now, and it’s keeping me going.
There is so much to life, so much to learn, so much to do/try, we have just got to make the most of it. I am the first to agree, there’s nothing more that I love than a lazy sofa day with Chris, watching tv and eating something yummy, however, there’s also so much more out there to do, and yes, of course, it takes courage and motivation, but do it, you only live once. Life is about appreciating your family and friends, enjoying time with your grandparents, and boyfriend,or even taking your beautiful dog for a walk. The thing I love is that, for some, some of the best day’s of our lives haven’t even happened yet, Getting married, having children, buying a house. There is just sooooo much to life, and personally, I want to enjoy each day more and more, because I’m sure before I know it, I’ll soon be 40+ and I certainly don’t want any regrets. Do what makes you happy!
I would love to hear your thoughts about routine, getting stuck in a rut and your bubble?
