Happy Thanksgiving

Happy-Thanksgiving.jpg

This morning we brainstormed some things we are grateful for, as you can see, Santa is on the list. My 8-yr old is very grateful for Santa, believe me. We should be thankful everyday of our lives, but somedays you just can't, somedays, are just blargh and you don't want to be grateful for anything. Thanksgiving reminds us of just that. It reminds us that we have things to thank life for each and everyday.

I used to do a daily exercise of writing down 3 things that made me grateful that day, but a lot of times, I just wrote the same stuff over and over. It's a great exercise to make us dig deep, after all, each day we can find things that make us happy, even on those days blargh.

So, enjoy Turkey day for those in the US or those who aren't in the US, but celebrate Thanksgiving.

And it's Here!

2015  

I confess, I totally stole the (saying) idea from canva, where I designed the card above and where I've been designing all of my blog cards/posters. But how can we not expect 2015 to be the year of awesome? I fell in love as soon as I saw it.

I have high hopes for 2015. I'm excited about my blog, and a few other things I have been working on.

Besides all that, here are my goals for 2015:

  • To be a better person
  • To be a better mother
  • To grow each day personally and intellectually
  • To start running again... Oh dear, I need to find my motivation for that one...
  • To travel more

What are your goals? Anything exciting?

What Are you Going to Do about This Travel Bug in 2015?

A lot of people are content where they are, without travelling, and that's absolutely fine. Isn't this a wonderful world because of our different opinions? Now, there are people who always wonder... what would it be like to see this place and that place... what would be like to speak this language or live like them?

Sometimes it's a dream and it doesn't have to be only a dream. Put it into paper! Write it down! Visualize it! Believe!

Since it's almost 2015, and we are all setting goals, thinking of what we did in 2014 (or didn't do), I've created a worksheet to give you a little push... You can print it and stick to your wall or save it to your computer screen. Best of all, it's free!

(I'm planning follow up posts for these tips in due course, stay tuned)

Expat goals 2015

Forget about how to lose weight or how to stop smoking goals (although, they are valid...), let's set "let's live in another country" goals!

Enjoy!
