This morning I got the question from my mum if I wanted to follow with to visit my sister who is back in her university city. My first initial response was "no, I'm going to workout and then I need to study... " but after 10 minutes of thinking I realised just how silly and pathetic my response was. Yes I wanted to go to the gym, yes I needed to study but if there is one thing I have learned is that there is more to life than those two things and I shouldn't say no to life. Because once I'm back in gothenburg I'll have plenty of time to workout and study, but now that I'm with my family I should spend time with them.
I'm not perfect and I'm writing this post to share how easy it is to get into a comfortable routine, to say no to life. Yes I have a test coming up, yes I love going to the gym but there is more to life. It is that moment of thinking, the more rational and smart mind that is so important. I self reflected and realised that my planned day could infact be changed. I'm not writing this post to get critisizing but to show the truth and be honest. No its not a sick mindset, but I am good at living a routine life but how fun is that?
This is the type of thing I mean when I say I need to start saying yes more often. Say yes to change in routines!!
If you are like me maybe this can help inspire you to realise that yes studying and work are important but there are more things in life than that. I mean when I'm 80 I don't want to look back on life and think "wow all I did was study ".
So, a little moment of self reflection! However I don't know if we actually will travel to my sister because of the snow chaos and traffic, so maybe I'll end up just going to the gym and studying anyway but the mindset change is key!!
P.s i know i just made 3 posts in a row... but I don't really care about timing anymore. Somedays there's 1 post others 5 ^-^
