It’s my last month, or month and a half (I don’t exactly know yet when am I going home) in Australia for now and I really want to take this month to focus on myself. My time here has been a lot about meeting people and that’s what traveling is about, and I get tears in my eyes if I think about all the amazing friends I’ve made here. But it’s hard to balance that with ‘me time’, I’d say the whole summer I was busy doing something with someone every single day, even if I woke up without a single plan after a phone call from a friend or a text from someone I had my whole day planned. No time to think, just go do things – you are in a new country, go out there, live, explore, meet new people, have fun. That was pretty much my summer, always on the go. So now I really want to take this month for myself, I will still hang out with my friends of course but instead of dropping all my plans the moment someone wants to do something, I reschedule it for another day and go to the gym, do a face mask and read a book or do whatever else I had planned to do. This month I’ll put myself first. I want to:
- Work out as often as I can. Last week I worked out like crazy and LOVED it! I always work out but last week was on another level. I read in a book that you only have a few things that you can put your focus on every day and if you’re putting your energy into the wrong things (like constantly hanging out with friends with no time for yourself) or (things like partying and fuckboys..ugh I swear they take the most energy) then you just don’t have the time and energy for gym or whatever else you want to do! But last week I pretty much had no plans apart from work and gym and I had so much time and energy I worked out twice per day!
- Eat healthy. I’ve always been a healthy girl but just taking it to the next level and really cleansing my body with good food. Also I learned how to cook – look at all the things you can do when you take time for yourself!! I really feel like I’m growing as a person.
- Listen to more books and podcasts. It’s a bit tricky right now because my headphones broke, need to get new ones asap. But that’s the best way to feel even better about yourself, learning and growing into a better human. I want to leave this place smartest I’ve ever been.
- I really want to focus on my Instagram and taking photos and that’s just my number 1 priority. I also have the most amazing collaborations going on with my DREAM brands – Saboskirt, Revolve, Mistressrocks etc. They are literally giving me my dream summer wardrobe! I decided I won’t shop anymore for clothes, just for accessories or only if I really see something amazing and I’ve actually managed to save quite a lot of money! And I’m planning to buy myself something I’ve been dreaming of for 2 years. I’m so happy on the inside. I will forever be happy that I started blogging/Instagram and found this passion.
Ah I really feel like a month of me time is all I need! Although I’ve met amazing people here I’ve also met quite a lot of fuckboys who make you question your self worth for a second. Although I am a confident person, I know what I’m worth and I walk away if I’m being mistreated, seeing how guys act can still really hurt. I’m not just talking about myself, but all the girls here. Honestly, poor girls is all I can say. But I’m happy and grateful for all these experiences, I’ve never really been single before – to be honest the past year has been my first single year as I was in a great long term relationship before and all these bad experiences were definitely what I needed. I haven’t been sleeping around (I’ve never been that kind of person and truly need to know the person and have deep feelings for them in order to be able to do that) but more just like going on dates and seeing where things go etc and then finding out the person has been lying about their whole existence…pretty much. Honestly dating in Australia is something else, never do I ever recommend that to anyone haha unless you have a heart of steel and can’t get hurt! One night we had quite a bit of wine with Lauren and we were talking about writing a blog post about dating in Australia. Should we? haha. Anyways in the end it’s all about living and learning and looking back you just laugh at all these experiences! No need to take life too seriosly :-)) Sleep time now. Night xx
