Since making the video, I’ve been trying to practice self love as mindful as possible. I had fun with friends, let go, had some drinks, ate good food and lived life. I had nice conversations with friends and my boyfriend. Filmed a video, inspired some people to keep a gratitude journal. It was good. Very good.
I’ve decided to things a little bit different. I’ve been trying to lose weight forever. Like from when I was in my early teens till now. And its been a bit more on the background since I went vegan because I simply didn’t care about weight loss anymore. I cared about the animals and as long what I ate was vegan, I didn’t care how healthy it was. Now I do have to say that I eat a way healthier diet then I used to eat and I’m not gaining anything at the moment. But… I’ve been drinking a little too much alcohol, a little too much binging sessions etc. and I’m done. I don’t feel good. I’m not in the shape I’m supposed to be.
YES. So I uploaded my first two videos, working on the third one and I feel so good and inspired. I’ve been wanting to do this stuff since for years and I can’t describe how good it feels to DO the things you want in life instead of thinking or saying you want to do them. And as expected, my little Youtube debut, the act of doing, inspires me and how I live my day to day life.
I’ve been reading, watching videos and what not about meditation, tried a few times and loved it but never ever came through with creating my ideal routine. I love reading, but I just didn’t do it because I was so used to being on my laptop watching videos or checking Instagram on my phone. Slowly but surely I’m changing things up but I can more and I can do it better.
So today when I woke up. I checked my phone automatically but decided to look up a guided meditation video for waking up. It was a short and perfect one for a meditation newbie like me. I finished it, read a couple of pages and drank water before making breakfast. Tomorrow I want to do this again, but also do a little bit of stretching or even yoga.
Excited to go to the island this week, the place I can truly clear my mind and spent time near the sea, forest and my boyfriend. I have so many things I want accomplish and with my new and more active approach I’m ready.
Lets do this.
We never moved when I was a kid. I’ve always lived in the same house while growing up. That makes this place a little extra special to me. I always feel safe and at peace, its nice to come here and clear my mind for a little bit. I always enjoy going back to my own place where I have all my stuf, my room is very special to me and of course my furry friend that is waiting for me. But still. My parents are away for two days and asked me if I wanted to take care of our family pets. We have a dog, cat and a bird. Of course I said yes and it couldn’t have come in a better time.
I’m in the process of creating a routine at night and in the morning and include more reading, meditating and writing. Its definitely a work in progress ;). Even though I’m reading Shantaram, which is amazing so more about that book when I’m finnished, I felt like taking my laptop to bed and just write down my thoughts.
EEKPEEK will be bigger and better! Working hard on the lay-out and content to launch a.s.a.p. and with my graduation project being all about social media, I can invest most of my time in this blog. I’m planning on starting a Youtube channel and will probably will be producing my content in English.
New content will still be about my journey with living a more compasionate, green and healthy lifestyle, promoting veganism, learning more about spirituality and becoming the best version of yourself. 🙂
Slowly but surely I have the confidence to put out videos, like I always wanted and try to make the movement that is taking over social media, even bigger. Right now you can follow me on Instagram (@eekpeek), I share a lot of tasty food and cat pictures.
