How to Achieve your Goals

We all think that the chances we didn’t take would be making us feel much happier than we currently are. We need to change this pattern of thought. The most important step to achieve your goals is:

1.Change your Mindset

Start paying attention to your thoughts. Every negative thought you have, change it into a positive one. At the end of the day, you will realize that you kept changing your thoughts because most of them were negative. Be more positive.

2. Consistency

Remember, you’re changing a pattern, you need to be consistent with “step 1”. You’ll start building more confidence, and that is the key to achieve any goal that you set to yourself. Your life perception will change for the better.

3. Where do you need to Invest?

Improve yourself, now that you are aware that you can achieve whatever you want and nothing is impossible, you can start searching for all the tools you’ll need to get you there. Is it more knowledge, more money, more time, meeting new people?

4. Do it!

You came this far, go for it. Don’t be afraid of failure, of disappointments, you are getting there. You have the confidence, you have the knowledge, you have the drive, and you have the focus. Nothing is stopping you. You got this. Be resilient! Overcome the obstacles and keep going with your positive mind. It could take time, but you will definitely get there.

How to Start Over on a Positive Note

To start over… just by thinking about it, it makes us want to run, right?

We worked so hard, we invested so much time and emotions to get where we were, and suddenly it’s over. This is hard, regardless of the area of our life that we are dealing with this situation.

And then come the questions from everybody and we don’t feel like talking about it. We are just trying to figure it out ourselves. What happened? How did I get here and so on..it is a mess!

First of all, keep in mind that this is just your current situation, not the final one. You are moving on!

Find a good friend. Talk about, cry about it and then shake it off!!

It’s time for you to start over, stronger, wiser, smarter, you know you deserve more, so go for it!!

A positive mindset is the way to go. Start by analysing what is it that you want to change in that particular area of your life, and that is regarding you and others. Make those changes and look for something that will only add to your life!

When we are looking for different outcomes, we must start by taking different actions than before, right?

I do it! Don’t over-think it, just do it, because you can!

The most important message that I want to give you is that starting over is a good thing!

I know that it means a breakup, ending of secure situation, the ending of a safe place or person. Look at it this way, you’re getting new chances in your life, new situations, new people, new lines of thinking, new ways of living life, new opportunities of being even better than you were before!

Trust the process, if there are new beginnings in your life it’s for an even better life than you expected!

Give yourself the chance of happiness, of joy. You definitely deserve it!!

How Positive Affirmations will Change your Life

Every morning when I wake up, the first thing I do before getting out of bed, I grab my positive affirmations list.

I made a small book with all my positive affirmations. So, I started a routine, made it a habit, and I read my boost affirmations and, let me tell you, it works!

I gained a totally different vibe, my confidence level is always high, no matter the surrounding mood, I’m at peace, I know that every day is going to be amazing, I know it in my heart, I’m aware of my daily challenges, but I’m also very much aware of my capacities to overcome them. I know my routines, I visualize my entire day in my mind, and I immediately feel great!

This habit can be life-changing. Imagine that you’re dealing with grumpy people all day, but it has no impact on you, it doesn’t affect you, because of your positive mindset, all of your positive affirmations are dancing in your mind, and you are happy!

This has enormous power. You know you have the confidence, you are capable, you are able to achieve whatever your mind wants and dreams about.

I’ll leave some examples of positive affirmations that I read on a daily basis, and I hope this will help you to achieve the right mindset and to get you where you want to go!

– I am proud of myself

– I am in charge of my life

– I love my life

I am grateful for being able to share this with you!

How to Organise your Finances

Having control over your finances will help you be debt free and increase your savings. This will bring you peace of mind.

On this post, I will share with you what I do to organise my finances.

1.Set Goals

Setting a goal will help you be more motivated to have control over your finances. Wanting to be debt free, save for a house or for a trip will help you not quit.

2. Change your Priorities

Start making smart choices. Instead of dining out, make yourself a lovely meal at the comfort of your own home. Little changes like this will have a huge impact on your finances.

3. Start Organising

For me, the only way I actually started gaining control of my finances and where I’d spend my money, was when I started to write everything down. I got myself a money planner and made sure to write down all of my daily expenses, and I started to make a plan of how much I wanted to spend on each thing. When I begin to track all my expenses, I realised how much money I was spending on unnecessary things. This was life-changing.

So, thinking of it, I decided to make a Monthly Budget Planner that will help you do the same. On this Planner, you’ll be able to find a Monthly Log, a Budget Tracker, a Savings Tracker, a Debt Tracker, a Money Goals Spread, an Expenses Tracker, a No Spend Day Tracker, a Bill Tracker, a Week Overview, a Shopping List, and more!

I’ll leave the link here in case you are interested.

Self-care on a Budget

We all love to pamper ourselves every once in a while, but better than that, it becomes mandatory when we make self-care a daily routine!

This is the time when we renew our energy, it lowers our stress levels, we feel balanced, peaceful and everything flows, right?

The great news is that, with the right budget, we can make this happen every day, instead of once a week, or every two weeks!

This is how you make it happen:

1.Spa moments

You can have your evening bath with bath bombs and get relaxed and feel fresh. Just add them to your bath water and turn your bath into a fun skin treatment. All the bath bombs, yummy soaps, and bath salts can be made by you, making you save a lot of money. I made a Pinterest Board for you, click here to be inspired.

2. Body Care

If you do little things at home instead of going to the beauty technician, you’ll save a ton of money at the end of every month. So, things like cellulite treatments, hair removal, eyebrow, and nails are all done by me, at the comfort of my own home.

3. Me Time

We all appreciate moments where we’re just doing what we love and are super relaxed. For example, reading is my favourite way of spending my “Me time”, and I found a way of continuing to have it even though I’m on a tight budget. Instead of buying the books, I land them off my local Library, this makes my “me time” way less expensive.

I hope this will help you to have your Self-Care Routines on a daily basis. Thank you for meeting me Halfway.

How to be an Organized Stay-at-Home Mum

As a single mum, I quickly realized how bad I needed to be organised in order to attend my daughter’s needs and mine. The first couple of years where quite hard but everything changed once I started to become more organised. So, in today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you the perfect way to organise your life as a stay-at-home mother.

1.Wake Up Early

I know what you’re thinking, you can barely sleep and I want you to wake up early (I’ve been there). Let me tell you, waking up early will help you get everything done, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have a few minutes just to yourself, for your self-care moments!

2. Stay Calm

This step goes along with the previous one, when you wake up before your kids, you get to do your morning routine quietly, preparing breakfast will be a much peaceful task. You’ll be able to prepare their lunches and their snacks in advance, and after all this, you’ll be able to enjoy your breakfast with your family and start your day in a great note.

3. Write Down Everything

Planning everything and writing things down will help you achieve what you’re meant to do and it will help you save time.

Knowing how important this step is, I made and launched a planner that will help you with all of these tasks. It’s a Mum’s monthly planner, it includes a Monthly Overview, a Household Duties Tracker, a Kid’s Schedule, a Mum’s Schedule, a Mum’s Self-Care Spread, an Activities Tracker, a Weekly Overview, Meal Planners and more! I’ll leave the link here if you’re interested!

Mum’s Planner

I hope these tips will help you as much as they helped and continue to help me.

Types of Savings every mum Should have

One of the main stressing issues that all parents have is about money. We want to make sure that we raise our children with all the comfort and care that they deserve.

Here are some money saving tips that will help you raise your baby with some financial stress relief:

1.Emergency fund

Create an emergency fund. Every month put some money aside. This will help you to cope if you have any unexpected situation. You should have 6 to 12 months of monthly expenses (bills, groceries, rent, etc) saved.

2. Baby Savings

When expecting a baby all our priorities change, everything circles around this beautiful life that is about to join us in this amazing world and we often forget how much we are going to need to spend on the first stages. So, during the pregnancy make sure to gather all that you’ll need for the baby’s daily care.

See among your friends and family if they have any baby’s furniture that they no longer use, to lend you.

Make a list of all the items you’ll need and start purchasing them now. Look for sales, make choices and you’ll be able to save money and have quality products.

3. Create activities/holiday funds

On your financial budget make sure to put some money aside for weekend activities and holidays with your children. Plan ahead where you’re going and save money monthly so that, within your budget, you can enjoy to the fullest these amazing moments with your family, Look for fun free activities and create great memories at a low cost.

4 .University fund

Start to save small amounts of money per week. If you start doing this on a regular basis you’ll be amazed at the savings you made through the years. Start when you’re children are young and, by the time they turn 18, you’ll have a comfortable university fund for them.

I hope these tips will help you.

Cry it Out!

All of us, although in different stages of our lives, are struggling with something, right? Either a small thing that we just want to overcome or a big thing, that is taking our peace. Sometimes it becomes so overwhelming that we just cry!

This is what I want to address today. First of all, crying is not a week sign, it’s, in fact, a sign of intelligence. Why?

It calms pain, reduces stress, it helps you deal with grief, you’re purging negative energy, it releases hormones that were keeping you from being balanced, it helps to balance our mood. After crying you feel relief, you have a sense of peace, expresses vulnerability, people can relate to you and feel empathy because we are all human and we need to release that negative energy. When you don’t release it, it will grow on you.

So, be brave to cry out of grief, deception, or just because you’re hormonal, just until you feel the tension is gone. Then, wipe your beautiful face and keep this in mind:

-Cry in a healthy way;

-Don’t take situations so seriously;

-Learn to laugh at yourself;

-Run away from drama;

-Learn from the situation and keep a good mood;

-Evaluate each situation and find out what’s bothering you;

-Express what you feel and don’t hold on to negative situations or people.

We all cry, we all have challenging moments and situations, we all suffer losses, It’s okay to cry, just make sure not to stay there, overcome and move on!

An amazing life awaits!

Simple ways of organizing your life

For these last 10 years, I gain the habit of organizing my days and all areas of my life actually with written lists. The funny thing is that this was something I learned from my daughter! She had this thing about registering all the activities that we were planning for the day, when we went to the supermarket (she even had a candy list), what to put in her backpack for school, just about every countable thing she would make me write it down.

I found it very sweet at first, and very useful as well. Everything was organized and there was this amazing sense of accomplishment, it was a good feeling.

So I started to apply this to all areas of my life, and by doing that I felt like my mind was being organized as well, I was starting to gain control on all areas of my life. I created specific goals, daily goals, weekly goals, I started to make lists about myself, how I felt that day, things to improve, things to be grateful for, motivation quotes that I read every morning, how to become more productive, how to become more motivated and it felt like a therapy.

This amazing tool that my beautiful daughter taught me had a huge impact on my life.

My mind is organized, I have my boost motivational routines, I have my financial life in control and all of this brings me this wonderful feeling of safety and control in all areas of my life. Of course, I don’t have control over what happens on outside events, but I have total control of my mind and how I decide to overcome any situation.

Today I’m giving you a free printable. I usually use this printable to increase my self-esteem and gratitude.

This is the printable.

I hope you’ll try it because I’m sure that it will have a positive impact on your self-esteem.
