Does anyone remember when everyone did this blog post? I know it’s perhaps not as trendy anymore and slightly outdated, nevertheless, do I still think the idea is good. The last time I did one of these posts was in June 2018 (how absolutely crazy is that!). I feel like I’ve been blogging for so long, but at the same time I feel like I’ve just started again. Anyway, if you’re not familiar with this specific blog post, the idea is that I tell you everything and anything I’ve been up to lately or been thinking about that I would tell you if we were having coffee. Please feel free to make a cup of coffee, tea or anything else that would add to your feeling of comfort and joy. Let’s get on with it, shall we?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I graduate in less than a month. I have so many different and confusing feelings around this fact, because I’m super excited but at the same time super nervous of what’s to come. If you don’t know it’s very normal (here in Denmark) to have a gap year or two after highschool where you work in order to earn money, travel the world and have fun. But there’s so much pressure around this, because I know that these approaching years will be extremely special in the sense that I’ll never have the opportunity again to do and explore what ever I want to. I think all these thoughts and feelings can be reduces to the fact, that I for one of the first times in my life are completely unsure about what I want. It’s almost as if the more opportunities one has the bigger fear for choosing one gets. But I am really excited as well. I think what I need to learn about this and myself is that it’s perfectly fine to not know what I want – in fact it might even be good for me to question what I want (what do you think?)
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we will be having 20+ degrees (celcius) every single day for the next ten days. I can honestly hardly express how happy this makes me. I’m definitely the sort of person that’s really affected by how the weather is. If it’s rainy I feel cozy and want to stay inside, if it’s sunny I’m the complete opposite – can you relate to this?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I recently got in contact with a childhood friend that I’ve not spoken to for almost three years. We went out for a coffee and talk about everything and nothing. It was so reassuring and heartwarming to speak to a friend that has known me for so long and still knows me very well. It made me realise how much I miss speaking to my friends. I have been in a place in life where I found it extremely difficult to focus on anyone but myself – it’s not that I didn’t want to focus on my friends, I was just not able to. I now feel like I owe my friends so much because I havn’t been able to properly catch up with them. Even though I have this feeling, I also feel exceptionally happy about having the time and energy to start listening and properly be there for my friends again. Friendships are at times really difficult because I often feel like I’ve not given them enough of my time and care. Luckily, I must remember that these things can be talked about and changed.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my struggle with anxiety has gotten so much better. I don’t feel anxious every single day anymore, I don’t have panic attacks every single day anymore and my thoughts have overall become so much more positiv. I know this can be really difficult to read if you’re in a place where you’re consumed by anxiety and stress and feel like you can’t find a way out, but trust me you will eventually find a way out. Remember this ‘nothing lasts forever’ meaning the difficult things will always come to an end, but it also means we should value and appreciate our happy times, because they too are precious moments and are valuable to us because they end too.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you how are are. I know it’s super easy to answer that you’re fine, but I would genuinely like to know, no matter if you’re feeling your best or your worst. If you had something that troubled you I would give you my very best advice and understanding words. Please remember that you’re always welcome to send me a DM on Instagram or even email me if there’s something that troubles you – I’m always ready to listen and help.
This was all I wanted to share with you today. I hope you enjoyed this post and that you perhaps found affirmation in some of my words. Please like this post and let me know in the comments…
How you are at the moment? What you would tell me if we were having coffee? And what are you looking forward to the most this summer.
I hope you get to enjoy this weekend wherever you may be. I appreciate every single one of you reading and engaging with my blog posts – it truly means the world to me.
Love you lots
