An update on me

Hi Everyone,

I feel embarrassed for even writing this blog but I think I have to do this as I have many people reading my blog.

So many things that have happened for the past two months, from traveling to moving apartments to getting married and so much more. Yes, I have to say that I should have given more time to blogging and vlogging, but I was too busy I even forgot about it.

Good thing is that I am back to my routine and although there are things happening here and there, I will definitely dedicate more time to blogging and making YouTube videos again.

Another note, I have signed up to run the half marathon in Sydney which will be on September the 17th. Because of lack of time to get a proper training I will not run a full marathon this time. But I feel good that I am going for a half marathon because I cannot handle the pressure of putting a 20 week trainings program into 8 weeks. No thanks, I am done with stress!

Anyways, talking about working out, I have been thinking about eating more healthy and changing some things about my eating habits. Today I started writing down the things I eat on a daily basis. I will be eating less meat and more vegetables and fish. Also, I have not been drinking any soft drinks since a week and I do not add any sugar to my tea or coffee for a while now.

I have been more aware recently about my lifestyle and I am ready to make big changes. But… big changes start with small steps πŸ™‚

I hope you all are doing great, and I promise you that I will be blogging more often than I’ve ever done before. Send me a message if you wish to see a particular subject on maanitalk.com

You can always follow me on Snapchat (username: Maanitalk) for daily update as well as my Instagram (click here to be directed to my profile).

Self esteem vs Social mediaΒ 

Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, YouTube, Blogs, etc.

Everyone has an account or uses all social media platforms. It’s fun, connecting with the world, connecting friends and family. Some have made it there business and others just use it for their own private life. AND it can be addicting to get as many likes as possible, sharing each and every moment because it will gain followers. But why are we doing that? Why do some people feel like they need to get certain likes because otherwise they delete their post. Not enough? People see that your selfie didn’t make it to the popular pages? SO WHAT?! 

Too many people attach their self esteem with their social media accounts. It’s very important for some to get more followers more likes and more compliments. That selfie is going to be IT!! And then… it doesn’t go as you wanted… as expected… then what?! You feel down? You feel sad? You feel angry? Why? 

Self esteem goes down, and people look for what others do and how they look and what they wear and try to copy that because that will give them some fame. Unfortunately it doesn’t always work like this and you have to understand. This doesn’t mean that you are uglier than the rest, less fun, less intelligent or anything in between. 

Don’t attach who you are with the likes you have. Try to see the fun in sharing nice moments, but don’t let the amount of followers or likes take away the joy of the moment. 

Nobody is going to share their problems with the wold (some do and that’s their choice). Nobody is going to share a picture where they just got out of bed, or where they are feeling angry or sad. Why? Because that’s not for sharing, that’s private in my opinion. 

So whatever you see on social media is not always how people live their life ever single moment of every single day. Don’t be ashamed and don’t feel less than anyone. Your true value is with the people that are really around you. Your kindness in your daily life!!! 

Social media, it’s fun and all, but it will never determine how I see myself when I look in the mirror. And I wish for everyone to understand. You are beautiful, with 1 or 6000 likes on that selfie that you took 100x before posting one (yes that’s me too and I’m not ashamed!). 

Monday Motivation

Do you remember guys that I made a video saying how much I regret not enjoying my time in Sydney and did not do what I truly wanted to… Well guess what…Β I came back to AustraliaΒ last week, and I couldn’t be more grateful for it.

First week was mainly getting over my jetlag, I had troubles sleeping at night or staying awake during the day.

Now that I have asked the universe for another chance to still go back to Sydney and do all the things I wanted to do and explore, I will not let this go to waste!!! I have regret it once and I made a mistake, I am not planning to do it again, yes, trust me. The feeling of regretting something is too painful. Although I am happy for whatever happened, like I said, lesson learned πŸ™‚ .

For my Monday Motivation blog for today, I would like to remind you all, if there is something that you really want to do and you have put your mind on doing it, just go for it. It is not easy to regret things afterwards, trust me. If you feel like you need some guidance and some help from a higher power, just ask the Universe and let it lead you to whatever you desire. Don’t forget to follow the Universe, it knows the way πŸ˜‰ .

Side note: Never be sad when whatever you asked for is not coming, the greater powers might have planned something bigger for you, or they are giving you a detour as they want you to collect a few more skills along the way.Β 

I am happy that what I asked for came to me, I know that this is where I need to be now or else I was somewhere else. This is my chance to enjoy like never before! ❀

Bad Karma Works For No One

We all have experienced a situation where another human being had hurt us or put us in a bad or negative situation.

The funny thing that people say is “One day they will feel the way I feel now” or “It will come back to them and they will regret doing this to me” or “I hope that this person will get what he/she has put me through”.

Something that I have found out through my experience is that BAD KARMA WORKS FOR NO ONE. It is self employed, it is not going to work for you so that you get to see the other person suffering the way you have or wishing it will be worse for them. It is not nice to be put in a situation where you get hurt or where you experience sadness or anger. But it is even worse to wish for someone else, BAD KARMA.

Karma is energy, it matches the energy that you put out and brings it back to you. “What goes around comes around”. The person that might have hurt you will get what they deserve whether it is worse or as painful based on what they have put out. Maybe they regret the way they made you feel, maybe it is unconsciously done, maybe they did not know that they have hurt you. Whatever the case, their (bad) Karma will come to them, and FORTUNATELY, it will NOT be according to your wishes (don’t feel bad, it’s all good).

You are angry and upset, you have been hurt and maybe heartbroken, but you have to just wish them all the best move on. Focus on your own Karma, Wishing or hoping something bad is going to happen to someone else is the exact energy that you are putting out and therefore, don’t be surprised when you meet another person that is giving you a hard time. So don’t try and do the job for Karma, you will not be able to do it, you don’t even know how to do it or what to do. If anything, you will cause yourself more harm than just letting it go.

You want revenge? Forgiveness is key!!! Just forgive whatever happened and move on. After being in a difficult relationship, having difficulties at work with someone, your friend neglecting your or any situation that includes people and them making you feel bad, just focus on what you love. Watch my video on my YouTube channel for more, click here to be directed. It will help you to move forward.

Again… Forgiveness is key! Have peace with whatever happened, drop it, and leave it behind.

All is well. Life is good. God is great ❀
