Thoughts on… Work

I hope everyone would have the courage and interest to strive for that dream job. Working with things of your own interest is very satisfying. Feeling accomplished doing the things you are interested in, what could be better.

But.

Don’t live for your work. Have other things to look forward to. Goes without saying I’m sure. But what I have noticed is that when you like your job, it’s sometimes hard to stop or to say no. So take a minute and evaluate the situation. Are you getting enough rest?

I leave you with this thought as I head for a vacation. I have to admit that I do need this time off to rest and to take my mind off work.

There will be travel posts to come! 🙂

Thoughts on… Travel

I love the possibilities to get up-to-date information on travel destinations. How great is it to find out about places to visit that you might not find in travel guides? Priceless. But how much does the negative experiences effect your travels..? While traveling I have met so many people and have many fond memories from chatting about travel experiences and other topics. Often times I didn’t even catch their names but learned a lot about their life.

This encounter happened years ago. I honestly don’t even remember which country we were at, but must have been somewhere in Asia. I don’t remember much about what we talked about but I just remember the absolute dislike towards a country this person manifested for the reason of having a layover “from hell” at the airport there. I’m sad how that one experience made this person feel so strongly towards a never-seen country. Reasons for this bad experience was no sleep and a flickering light.

If this information filled society has taught us anything it should be critical reading. Also good to practice it while listening. 

Thoughts on…

Trying something new. I have a structure I try to follow with my posts and thought I would start this new bit called “Thoughts on…”, which can be either about work or travel (and who knows where it will take me in the long run). In the beginning I was very hesitant about writing something of my own but now it doesn’t seem as scary. With these thoughts -posts I will try my hand in writing and sharing work and travel related topics with you all and hopefully eliminating any hesitation towards writing. 

Work has taken a lot of my time lately and sitting down to work on blog posts hasn’t always been the first on my mind when I do have a moment for myself. I am glad that I have found some great blogs to follow and with the WordPress app it is easy to keep up with them on the go. Writing on the other hand takes a little more concentration and my laptop. Reading great posts about blogging and it’s challenges (if it’s writers block or a busy schedule or something else) have opened my thoughts to all that regarding myself as a blogger. From the beginning I knew I want to shape my blog along the way. I started my blog for a quite specific goal that has in a way been reached now. I have realized I grew to like this topic of work and travel and by making changes to my blog and by not being too strict with it all, I think it has found a more permanent place in my life.

Thank you all for having an interest in my blog. I never thought this blogging environment and community would have such a special place in my heart.

Long introduction to all this… First “Thoughts on…” post up tomorrow!
