Guest Post: Take The Focus Back to You

Anne AamoneIf you have ever been in a long-lasting relationship, you are probably acquainted with all the sacrifices that you need to make constantly. It always comes to putting your partner’s needs at first place which often leads to ignoring your priorities and activities. Of course thinking about the other person always help us to realize that we are not all alone on that planet and that we need to get rid of the selfish behaviour that we tend to demonstrate without even realizing it.

I have to admit that maintaining a stable and serious relationship, where responsibilities are shared is more than challenge. There are a lot of obstacles that need to be overcome every single day and sometimes it is really hard not to lose your identity when you have committed all of your efforts on the relationship.

To take the focus back to you is not so difficult, if you are really determined to strive for your priorities. After all, true love has always have the power to survive even when faced in front of challenges. I will give you valuable advice how to cope with preserving your personality and way of living when you are in a relationship.

Discuss With Your Partner Your Hobbies and Interests

Find time to talk about your hobbies and interests and how you will fit them in your schedule. Do not neglect them, because you think that you won’t have time for your beloved one. I assure you that one or two hours, twice a week won’t represent a problem for your relationship. If your partner really respects you as a person he or she will be delighted with the idea that you want to develop your skills in a certain area. It is important to explain that you need the possibility to pay attention to your own interests, which, of course does not mean that you will sacrifice your relationship.

Make a List With Your Priorities

If you want to be sincere with your partner and, of course, to yourself, think about three priorities in your life, including your relationship. Make a list and write them down. If you have put aside some of them only because you are in a relationship, I assure you that this is definitely not the right thing. Compromises could be made both ways, so it is better to talk to your partner and to find a solution that will let you be yourself, with some of your priorities and professional activities.

Do not Lie about Your Plans and Intentions

As your relationship with your partner gets more and more serious, you are well aware that lies will only cause you a lot of problems to solve. Especially when it comes to priorities I advise you not to mislead the person in front of you, if your intentions are to focus strictly on yourself. Instead you can try to be honest and to find a solution that will save your relationship without stopping you from following your dreams. Although it sounds quite easy, I guarantee you that these issues require a lot of discussions and sleepless nights, so prepare yourself with a lot of patience.

These are the valuable tips that will allow you to focus on yourself,without ignoring your beloved one. Sharing the cleaning duties now seems like a child’s play but if you really count on your relationship you will find a decision to this problem that will let you follow your dream without hurting your partner. True love is capable of winning all the battles that are offered, so do not be afraid to hold your hands and to accept this challenge.

Guest Post: What is the most valuable thing in the world ?

pan thaiI think it’s time.

Because everything is acquired in time and all of human’s business is conducted by time. You could have food, clothing, fabulous homes, wisdom – have all you want, but if you do not have time, it means you have nothing.

As we go through life, we  realize, if there is anything in the world which will never come back again, it is time. There is a saying “Time and tide waits for none”. The saying is indeed true. Time waits for none. It comes and goes. No one can buy it. Nothing on earth can subdue or conquer it.

Someone said “Time is a precious thing” that God give us 24 hours or 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds equally.
So, we all have a precious treasure called, time. Each of us obtains it 86,400 seconds per day. Do we spend it on the right way or let it go slowly ? You think God will give you a new day, that is filled with 86,400 seconds and because of this, you’ll just spend time aimlessly, right? I think most of the successful people use it reasonably and doubtlessly. Great men and women used their every moments most profitably and economically. It’s through this method that they have invented great things, discovered wonderful things and left their footprints on the sand of time.

I used to think that I have too much time to waste, but today my time is fading away little by little. I have no time anymore even though God will give me 24 hours tomorrow – and that’s for sure. But I feel…feel like I need more time…more than I have before.

So now, if you are young. Do not think like my childish idea. You should never postpone doing good or important things. You should never be idle when you ought to be working hard. Leisure is enjoyable only if it yearns to fruitful hard work. It’s our duty to not leave any work till tomorrow that can be done today and now.

Someone who wastes time uselessly will some day be wasted by time because they don’t gain anything from the time they waste.

Time is powerful. It conquers all.Analog Clock at 9 o clock
A student who has to repeat another year knows the value of time in one year.
A mother who looks after her child knows the value of time in one month.
A weekly newspaper editor who doesn’t send his work in time knows the value of time in one week.
A man who is waiting for his girlfriend knows the value of time in an hour.
A man who misses the last train knows the value of time in one minute.
A man just surviving an accident knows the value of time in one second.
A runner who wins the race knows the value of time in split second.

How about you ? Have you known the value of your time yet ?

Guest Post: Improve Your Daily Schedule

White Board Schedule, Markers, Eraser Are you among these people who are constantly complaining that they are too pressed for time and therefore unable to run all the errands they are supposed to during the day. Don’t you think that improving your schedule, making it more flexible and easy to follow can greatly improve your ability to cope with all the tasks at your home, office, garden and even find some time for yourself? Make the necessary changes and start doing more things that make you happy.

  • Don’t underestimate the importance of the good sleep. An adult needs to sleep between 6 and 8 hours per night in order to be energetic and productive during the day.
  • It is a well-known fact that breakfast is the most important meal for the day. Under no circumstances should you miss it but you have to make sure it is healthy and nutritional. Having an abundant breakfast will save you time for snacks during the main meals and will undoubtedly have a positive impact on your body.
  • Do your best not to neglect your appearance and absorb yourself in performing the tedious daily tasks. You need no more than 20 minutes a day to look good and rest assured it will be noticed by your friends and co workers.
  • In general, there are two types of people – those who are more productive in the morning and those who get energetic in the afternoon. If your manager allows so, set your personal working hours. Always perform the most difficult and time – consuming responsibilities at that time when you feel in a top form. Prolonging and postponing the unpleasant tasks won’t do you a good favor.
  • Before leaving the office take your time and make a list of all the things you have to do the next day. It will enable you to go straight to the work instead of wasting time and getting distracted while planning the daily activities.
  • If you are the only one within the household who really cares about cleanliness and neatness, it’s time for changes. Ask your spouse or your kids help you do the weekly cleaning. Throwing the rubbish and wiping down the computer screen are easy cleaning procedures that can be performed by everyone. They don’t take more than 10 minutes but when you have to do everything on your own, every minute counts. However, when divided by PerfectCleaning, house chores take much less time.
  • Even if you are really busy, don’t forget your friends and family. They can help you overcome the stress you are exposed to. Sharing your issues and concerns with your closest ones and spending some time outdoors will greatly improve your mood and reduce the anxiety.
  • Minimize the time you spend in front of the computer. Don’t you think that there are much more enjoyable activities than spending the evening browsing in the social networks and reading nonsense? If you want to use them anyway, set up a meeting with friends, read the latest book of your favorite author, listen to your favorite music.
  • Find some time to workout. Concentrating on the proper performance of the exercise will help you be fit and forget about the daily worries for a while. However, if you don’t have to go to the gym sporadically. Set two or three days of the week when you can go and do some training and stick to your new schedule.It is never too late to start all over, rearrange and prioritize your goals. There is time for everything you want to do and you can undoubtedly find the happy medium between work, family and fun.

Guest Post: How to Find the Love of Your Life… in Yourself

Written by: Jessica Conars
Jess1Loving yourself is not a sign of being selfish – it means that you recognize your personal value.

The most important person in your life is You. You have to realize that you deserve love and that love starts from you. You reflect the way people treat you. When you are filled with doubts and troubles, you sometimes might feel like you are stuck in a hole, from which you can’t get out.

Most people have been taught not to be selfish. But we aren’t taught that it isn’t being selfish when we feel love for ourselves – it only recognizes our value. When we realize our personal value, our life will turn into a floating river which will wash away our doubts and troubles.

People are often being too harsh to themselves. We often fill ourselves with negative thoughts for ourselves without even realizing it sometimes. Some of those thoughts and words could even be something that we don’t actually believe to be connected with us, we might have just heard it as a comment about us years ago. We can change this. The first step is to realize them and the second is replacing them with kind and loving words and thoughts.

Sometimes the negative thoughts we have can seem too strong, but if you are patient enough and spend some time on helping yourself, you can replace them. If you choose your thoughts carefully, instead of letting the negative ones to enter your mind freely, the positive ones can become stronger. You will be able to see how your life will quickly change by eliminating your negative thoughts one by one.

Here is an easy exercise. To prepare for it, you will have to think of:

1. Someone you love entirely: It can be anyone – your best friend, husband/wife, child, brother or sister – just think about them and your heart will warm up.

2. Something that you blame yourself for. It can be a failed attempt to lose weight or your difficulties in finding a financial stability; it could be the fact that you always postpone things are a problem in your relationship. We all have something that bothers us and we like being critical about, so just think about it.

Now that you have finished the two tasks above, it is time for the real exercise, which is based on 5 steps:

1. Spend a few seconds to concentrate on your breathing. You shouldn’t change the way you breath – just notice it. That will help you to feel like you are entirely here and you are present in this particular moment.

2. Think of the person that you love. Remember how it feels like having them around and talking to them.

3. Now imagine that the person whom you love starts talking about the problem you have chosen to think about. Our loved one has come to us, because of the love between you and them and because they need an advice for the same problem that you are having.

4. Imagine yourself giving a sincere heart-to-heart answer. When we truly love someone we become able not to judge them. We know that their problem is not so big as it seems, and we are able to comfort your loved one and to show them that we support and love them.

5. Now it is time to apply that advice in your own situation. That will help you face and overwhelm your challenges little by little.

You need to start treating yourself the way you treat the person you love most! Why not give yourself the same love and respect that you would give others? You deserve unconditional love; and when you look deep inside your soul, you will realize that you know this. You will be able to smile and be happy about yourself!
