I have something fun to share with you today. I am a very openminded person and I don’t care to share my life with people. My life is an open book. That is why I have a blog because I love to share things from my life and blog is about interests and I know that everything will not hit home with everybody. As a person I am very optimistic even though some of my optimism has been lost due to some bad things that happened 5 years ago but the optimism is coming back stronger and stronger. I am quite positive even though I have some negative periods as I believe is quite human to have.
Let’s talk about something fun that happened in the last couple of months. I had a job when we moved from Stavanger to Trondheim and we moved primarily for Johan’s sake. He was quite negative when we lived in Stavanger since there were no jobs there and it was a bit depressing to not get a job after having studied for that many years. I was the one that kept on motivating him and telling him to stay positive which he finally listen to. I reminded him to thing of the power of the mind which is from a book that talk about that we can obtain everything in life only by choosing the right attitude. When we came to Trondheim he found a job right away and his life has really improved since we came here.
Things did not turn out quite good for me though and it was a bit hard to leave Stavanger and not getting a job as Johan did. I felt sort of that I had given up everything for his dreams and this depressed me in some way. It was really demotivating to stay at home every day waiting for Johan to come home from work. He reminded me about the things that I used to tell him when he was looking for jobs and that positivity brings positive things. I realised that it was easier to say than do and I understood how Johan must have felt when he was hearing these things from me. Anyway, the words are true and did help him and even though I kind of knew that the attitude would help me as well it was very hard to turn my mind into those thoughts.
The last couple of days I have managed to get more and more positive after having decided that I should try to change the way I was thinking. Johan and I had a nice conversation yesterday at a lovely cafeteria in Solsiden in Trondheim where we talked about the future and bringing rutines into our lives and guess what today a fabulous news came on my email where I am now going to attend a course which will guarantee me an apprenticeship in a few months and a full time position in a company after that. Norway has a great welfare system but it can differentiate between the cities and the regions and Trondheim has actually given me more than Stavanger did.
So next Monday I will start on the course and I am so exited and grateful for the opportunity that has been given me. Now I will finally join my boyfriend in the mornings and we can watch the news and drink coffee together haha..
If you are in the same situation that I was in please don’t let the negativism get you but that will only bring you down. If you feel heavy in the morning put on some music that makes you happy and look in the mirror and tell yourself that I can and I will do it. It sounds crazy but it works!!!
