OK. Just 1 more pic. And that's the end of the studio tour. Nothing else to see here, hehe. Told you it was teeny tiny. I have my work cut out, getting all my filing in there! Anyone want to help me? πŸ˜‚

I'm a bit excited so here's a sneak peek of what might be my new teeny (27sqm or 290 sqft) office/apartment. Finally moving all the work stuff out of the family house & late nights won't be followed by 20 kilo alarm clocks jumping on me! Everybody wins. 😊 πŸ‘Š Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly.

Reading a very interesting (unfinished) book about confidence & just had to tell you about it. It's called "Catalyst: How confidence reacts with our strengths to shape what we achieve and who we become". And I promise, one of these days if the sun ever returns that I'll take a pretty picture or two. 😘 #foodforthought #confidenceisaboutbalance

@andlyyli
Being negative can have heavier weight I think. And it can empty out the glass. But I agree, we can't ignore it either.. I'll look into it, thanks! :)

@parkvilleinjune

@parkvilleinjune
@tippics Finally someone gets it! I call it just keeping things real! On another note that I am getting tired of is yes the Think Positive nonsense out their and the positive mind, positive life nonsense also (tell that to a sufferer of PTSD from the war etc - goodness some of them try really hard to rid themselves of the memories and I think this saying can sound mean and condescending and also just make a sufferer feel guilt!) People also say move on, forget the past etc then why have an Instagram account and photos of our past? Sometimes we just like to preserve the memory of a lost love or a lost pet?! We also would seem pretty callous if something dreadful happened and we did not acknowledge it or feel it or even grieve over it. Thank you for this post. I am sorry for my longwinded message but you have made my day πŸ‘Œxx

@parkvilleinjune

@parkvilleinjune
ps. I did not express myself too well here and my grammar and phrasing was not great but hope you can decipher and understand my case point. Thank you xx

@tippics

@tippics
I get what you're saying @parkvilleinjune. It's important to feel the pain BUT it's also important to move past it. I still remember loved ones but it's that I miss them or momentary sadness but it doesn't eat me up - that's what moving on is about I think. It's not about forgetting. I mean, how could you?! I am an eternal optimist and definitely a think positive kinda gal (I wouldn't still be around otherwise as I've lived with depression for more than 30 years) but it's none of the rah rah BS stuff but more about gratitude and choosing happiness. 😘

@parkvilleinjune

@parkvilleinjune
I agree @tippics I am a sufferer of depression also and was diagnosed with PTSD from a traumatic experience about 5 years agog now. I manage my condition and I have learnt and still learning what my triggers are. My Dad has PTSD from the Vietnam War and that has been another battle in itself. I am optimistic but have my pessimistic bouts also. I think it's right what you are saying and that of the book. It's about balance or getting your measurement skills out. It's easier said then done sometimes I think. I could talk more about this topic as it's an interesting one and good to get different perspectives and yes being grateful, moving on and choosing happiness. Thanks for the recommendation of this book. Have a wonderful day 😘😘

@tippics

@tippics
Keep on learning @parkvilleinjune - hanging on to our pain doesn't serve us so it's really about being kind to ourselves too and letting it go. 😘

@parkvilleinjune

@parkvilleinjune
Yes Tip @tippics I learn something new everyday and you are so right. I need to let a few things go. I enjoyed our chat today. Thank you 🌷😘

@natplays & I released an eBook before Christmas in its first stage because good enough is good enough...get it now by signing up to our blog @apartmentdiet or you can wait to buy the final eBook when we release to Amazon in February (once we've found our new biz name! Can anyone help with this?) I'm assuming of course that you'd like tips on how to kick procrastination or creative blocks to the curb?! 😊 We also hope to start a daily challenge collaboration around Just Start in February too (more will be revealed soon). It's all happening - now I just have to get over this flu... #screwperfection #20waystostart

Do you value simplicity? I do these days. This, to paraphrase David Allen (@gtdguy) made me think - does living up to your values simplify your life or complicate it? If I'm honest, my values can sometimes complicate mine - trying to be the best for my kids, expecting excellence at work, the list goes on ... I've let go of a lot of expectations of myself in the last couple of years so things are improving but I'm committing to do more of that as this idea of how my values could be getting in the way of my desire for simplicity totally hit home. Happy weekend - the sun is out! Hurrah! 😊 #simplicity
