    I’m such a pessimist! I will always look for the negative in any situation and make that outweigh the positives! It’s good that you’re trying to become more positive, I wish I had tips on how to help but honestly I need the help myself! I’m sure that this year is going to be difficult for you at times but it will be worth it and I can’t wait to read more about your experiences!

      Ah I’m exactly the same, but lately I’ve been trying to look past the negative – negativity gets you nowhere! Thank you so much, thanks for reading! ✨xx

      It can be so easy for us to get into a negative mindset when things don’t always go to plan, but it gets you nowhere! Thank you so much ? xx

    Sometimes, things don’t work out the way we expect but that’s totally okay. There’s room for mistakes, as long as we accept them and work on it. It’s great that you’re trying to be better at speaking Spanish. That’s the same with me and Cantonese. Glad you’re gaining valuable experience. Mistakes make a funny story indeed! You can tell this story in the future and maybe turn it positive saying how you learned a lesson. I try to stay positive because it’s a mood that keeps me going, even through rough times :).

      Ah I couldn’t agree more. We need to make mistakes in order to learn from them, and it’s all part of the learning experience in the end. Staying positive is so important, thanks for reading xx

    I love everything about this. I am such a fan of how you chose to reword every negative into a positive! Just the other day, I heard a message very similar to this, so maybe the universe is trying to tell me something haha :’) I’m generally a very positive person, so when I do feel down about something, I feel like it hits me harder. In either case, having an attitude of gratitude is what gets me through!

    • eviejayne says

      Ah yes gratitude is so important. I find it so easy to let the negative take control, so this was an attempt of becoming a bit more positive haha. Thanks for reading x

      It can be so easy to believe everything we see online and think everything is plain sailing, but it’s not always the case! Thanks for reading x

    Thanks for this post, Evie, and your honesty! I’m in Madrid too on my YA and whilst there have plenty of fun moments, there are definitely times when it seems way harder than I could have imagined. I think taking it slowly and looking for little bits of progress, rather than expecting big changes overnight, as you say, is the best strategy! This is such an exciting time xx

    • eviejayne says

      Yeah definitely! It’s such an exciting time and opportunity, but taking it slow is the way to go in terms of immersing ourselves into the culture. I feel so exhausted otherwise! Thanks for reading ✨xx

    I know this feeling. Everyime I do amistake or something goes wrong, I think I cannot do anything. But that’s not true! There is so much power in us. And I love the pictures, they remind me of when I visited Toledo.
    Glad I found this blog

      Exactly! We can be our own worst enemy’s sometimes. It’s important to remember that one mistake isn’t the end of the world! Thank you!
