I've met a countless number of people thinking that my life is so perfect. Given that I'm still fairly young with quite a lot of life experience which I've gathered throughout my studies, traveling, working, living abroad while raising a young family and building a new company, I figure that it's quite easy to assume that I have it all sorted. The reality is - in appreciation of all the blessings that I can count, there is no such thing as perfection.
Ebb and flow are real. It happens to each and every one of us. The question is - how do we deal with it. Some people say that it's not about the situation, but how we choose to see it. I believe that circumstances are an important part of the whole story. We cannot ignore them. However, I realized that in order to survive and hopefully thrive in spite of any circumstances, we need a well-established support system in order to deal with whatever comes our way. All those tiny things that we tend to put aside thinking that only a big life-changing event would get us out of the rut, are actually vital to get us on our feet again.
For those of you interested in how it is to live in a foreign country and raise the children - I'll tell you this - it is a no joke folks. You'll never have the history, you'll never know the unwritten social rules and at the end of the day - you'll always be a foreigner. It's only thanks to this experience that I've finally understood the importance of mastering the art of living. That is a secret of living your life gracefully.
As my gift to you, I'm sharing a Self-love Menu For The Bad Days that I've created for myself to help me survive. It's something that works for me, and you can use it as an inspiration to make your own list of the things that are close to your heart. When the going gets tough, take a look at it and feel free to help yourself.
Do simple better and remember that lifestyle is a set of choices you make on a daily basis, so choose wisely.
