5 Ways To Brighten Up Your Day

Tired of work or life in general controlling your mood? Instead letting the outside world effect you internally, how about you switch it up and let your mood effect your outside world.

P.S. you only want to do that if you’re in a positive, happy mood.

 

I put together a list of things I implemented in my life, to make my day bright even on a rainy day.

#1 Be observant and aware of your emotions. Acknowledge what stresses you out, and what makes you angry. Pay attention to how those things effect your whole day. The great thing about observing these things is that you have an advantage of being able to solve the things that are bothering you.

 

#2 Change your perspective. If you can’t change the things that are bothering you. Then you have to change your perspective on the situation. You have the power to decide how you feel, so start by deciding to be a little more optimistic. Possibly the problems you are facing are only temporary, maybe it’s helping you be a stronger person, the problems you are facing could be fuel, motivation to make a big change in your life. Looking at your problems from a different perspective can sometimes show you that they are not real problems or problems that can be easily solved.

 

#3 Predict the future. Decide and believe you are going to have a good day before it has even officially started. I do this when I take up an agency jobs, the reality is I don’t like the jobs but for some reason deciding that I am going to have a good day made it so much easier. I honestly have a good day, I think that’s because I believe that I’m going to have a good day. So the night before or the first thing in the morning plan, out your day. With the things that normally bother you, plan in your head that you’re not going to let it bother you. Your day will not go exactly as you planned but because you are conscious and self aware you can manipulate your feelings towards the day.  The way you feel inside can effect what happens outside.

 

#4 Have something to look forward to. You know the feeling you get where the day to your booked holiday is getting closer. Well you should create that feeling with other things not just holidays. Discover your passions again. If you love reading treat yourself to some books. Make time for yourself and do what excites you. Maybe you need something big, like follow your passion and start your own business. Whatever is make sure you have things in your life that you can look forward to. So start planning for your self.

 

#5 Self love, the confidence that everybody needs. Notice how you tolerate things because confidence is stopping you from dealing with it. Confidence is the key to success and happiness, love your self be proud of your achievements, be selfish sometimes. You deserve to be loved and respected, and if you want more people to treat you how you like to be treated, then you have to love and respect yourself to. I’m sure people will love and respect you without you loving yourself. But it is important that you do it will encourage not to put up with being mistreated, it will encourage you to do things that make you happy and it will give you the strength and confidence to do the things you’ve always wanted to do so that most days become bright.

The Big Move to Paris

Paris

 

 

 

I never dreamed of living in Paris but life sends you down paths you never expect to walk. I’m a chef so my job allows me to travel to the most amazing places and one of them is Paris. What brought me to Paris you may ask? It may sound cliché but it was love, a young Parisian man brought me here. We met on a beautiful Island in Tahiti and I felt it was definitely more than a holiday romance. He works in the military and at the time I worked on a cruise ship so it had to be long distance for a while. I gave up my ship life because its honestly for the young a single if you want enjoy your time on the ship. If you would like more detail on how I met my boyfriend comment and I’ll do a blog post on it.

How I did it?

Finding a job in Paris; Craigslist or through Hospitality agency

Accomodation;Weroom, Roomlala and erasmasu

Savings; you need to save enough to support yourself for the first month until you start receiving your monthly salary.

If you are not part of the EU it will not be as simple as you would obviously need to apply for a visa and flights maybe expensive depending on how far you are. If you are an international student you may find it slightly easier. If you are planning to move there I can guarantee you’ll have an amazing time!

Advice? Learn as much of the French language as you can before you arrive.

 

But yes a man brought me to Paris, I’ll be working in the city in a brand new hotel so it is an exciting adventure in a beautiful city. Paris is beautiful in the day but during the night it really comes alive. There’s musicians where ever you go and shops restaurants, bars are full of life it just has an amazing atmosphere. It is definitely a city I recommend everyone to visit its full of culture and beauty and you really get to see why it is called the city of love. You can genuinely fall in love with city which is why so many Parisian’s are proud of there city and can’t imagine living anywhere else. Last year its no secret Paris went through a very tough time but I don’t believe you should let that stop you from coming. There security is better than ever they have soldiers walking around the city so you feel a lot safer.
