Gratitude means being thankful. Also, it helps you see your situation in a different way.
In times of Social Media, we tend to compare our lives to others and forget that we already have everything that we need. We are so caught up wanting what others have that this could possibly lead to dissatisfaction and even to unhappiness. Sometimes, I am guilty of comparing myself too.
And to be honest, anybody can practice gratefulness. The fact that you wake up every day and experience life is a reason to be thankful! Also, I am very sure that you have people who love you which is the most important thing in life.
Being healthy is another reason to be grateful because once we fall sick, we then wish to recover as soon as possible and tend to forget how good life was before the sickness.
Now, I want to show you the way I practice and stop comparing myself.
SHOP THE LOOK:
Why you should be grateful
Healthy habit – a positive mind is a healthy mind
It grounds you – even successful people need it
Can prevent you from depression
You focus on the things you have
Because the most of us have a roof over our head
You let go of things that you currently don’t have in life because in the future you could have it if you really want and work for it.
Reconnects you with family
You have a positive outlook on life

How I practice gratitude / How you can practice gratitude
Whenever I feel down, I just write all the things down that I have. Like for example my family, friends, being healthy and much more.
I help and give people compliments. Because it makes me feel content and people feel valued.
Try to write things down in a journal that you have in life like family, friends, people who helped you or even compliments from a stranger
Try to eat healthily and do sports so that your body can stay in a good condition
How to stop comparing yourself to others
Detach yourself from anything that could make you unhappy like: Social Media, friends, Family who always put you down or give you the impression that you aren’t good enough.
Instead of looking at what others do and feeling bad. Try to change that energy into building the dream life you’ve always wanted.
Finally, remember people only share the highlights of their life.
To put it in a nutshell, we’re unfortunately capable of comparing our lives to ‘dream lives‘ BUT we are also capable of enjoying the things we have if we practice gratitude daily and change the view of a situation.
I can’t believe that two months of 2018 went by so fast.
For the upcoming months, I’m trying to post weekly on the blog. So that I can be much more consistent with my content. I will share more photographies, lookbooks and perhaps a bit of my skincare because I think it might be interesting for some of you.
I currently wish it was much warmer than in the pictures. Thankfully, the sun managed to show itself on the freezy weekend. I really don’t know that it could be that cold in Germany. We went for a quick walk and took a few pictures in Seligenstadt. I was covered up in my jacket, jeans and boots. Also, I wore my new brown sunglasses which elevate this boring winter attire a little.
Today I wanted to share with you my outfit and what I have been up to.
The past week I’ve been just “living life”. We went to the cinemas and ate at good restaurants. In addition, we visited two concerts. Kendrick’s concert in Frankfurt and Russ‘ in Düsseldorf. I love going to concerts because it is always great to see your favorite artists on stage. Especially when the audience and the overall vibe is magical. Furthermore, we stayed for one night in a hotel in Düsseldorf.
Now back to my outfit…
It was a quite sunny day and I didn’t know what to put on. So, I threw on some black pieces for this shot. Since I haven’t posted an all black look here on the blog, I thought it would be a good idea. Before you ask, no – I am not attending a funeral.
My black blouse is from Mango, when I saw it I immediately fell in love with it due to the overall details and the puffy arms. Also, I don’t have something like this in my wardrobe. This statement-blouse makes every outfit pop. My pants are from ASOS and I have them for quite some time and they are really comfortable. The leather combat bootsare also from ASOS. They do make the look edgy. I kept the look in one tone/monochromatic but you know an outfit is never finished without the right accessories. That’s why, I put my favorite dainty golden necklace on and carried my Longchamp bag which is also in the color black.
It‘s been a while where I shared a bit of my personal life. Also, Christmas is knocking on the door and the year is almost over, I thought this would be a good idea. The past months I was quite busy. We celebrated friends and family birthdays. By the way, I had a lot going on in my life that was on the good and the bad side. Luckily, I didn’t let these issues affect my mental health.
Last week I spent most of the time in bed because I was ill and had little to no strength. A few days ago, I and my better half celebrated our anniversary, we are since 7 years together.
Since I love food and fashion I am really thinking to keep aboutjey more in the fashion/personal way and showing you the things I like. Therefore I want to open a more business related page where I focus on a different niche. But I don’t know yet. If I do decide, I will let you know.
A few words to 2017
I am really happy for the person I have become. And I don’t want to waste my time with things that don’t make me happy or don’t feel right. That is why my main and constant goal is to grow mentally and spiritually. This year showed me that way different and uncommon things can catch my interest.
Sadly, some people that were at the beginning of the year by my side won’t be there in 2018 anymore. That is life – I learned that people stay or leave so that they can teach you a lesson.
To put it in a nutshell, I know that 2018 will be great because I will just focus on positive things and stay open to new things.
Feel free to let me know how your year was and which lesson you’ve learned.
Today I want to talk about staying positive. What I do to be more positive and how I deal with negative thoughts.
Lately, I have been letting negative energy into my life. And I have noticed that my thoughts changed me in a way that I wasn’t proud of. Those thoughts aka negativity made me do and say things I would never say. Furthermore, those negative thoughts, made me feel anxious and sad.
Now, you would ask yourself what did I do to overcome this and turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts? My answer would be – change your mind and thoughts! Because you are able to control your subconscious mind. When I started doing that, everything that happened didn’t affect nor consigned me anymore. I didn’t allow anything to control or change my happiness because I wanted to be the one that is in control of my emotions.
Ways to be more positive
– Be more grateful – Not taking things personally – Feeding my “subconscious mind” with positive pictures and – Telling myself that I would conquer the world, haha! – Lastly, not giving a fuck anymore
Also, it is important that you believe in good things and in yourself. Because if you don’t do that, how can you build more positivity into your life? 🙂
This is my personal way of being more positive in life. I hope I could help you guys or tell me what you do.
P.S. I really enjoyed writing this little post, because it made me smile. 🙂 & if you want to know more about the subconscious mind, I would recommend you this book.
