Grateful

First of all, thank you all for your prayers, messages, and love. I’m truly grateful to have you all around me.

It has been a few emotional days, but the worst part is over. The surgery went good. My brother is at home and slowly recovering now. Thank you, God.

I flew home on Friday to see him. It was heartbreaking to see him at the hospital, but I knew that it was all for his best. I gave my parents a small break and I took full care of my brother last three days. He has been in a hell of pain, but he is a strong fighter.

I’m glad that I could be with my family during this difficult time. For me, family comes first. No matter what. You will always get a second chance/opportunity in life, but you will never get your loved ones back. That’s my simple philosophy.

To my lovely readers, don’t take things for granted. Be grateful for what you have in life. It’s not all about having a lavish lifestyle. It’s about those little moments in life which money can’t buy. Spend your time wisely with your family and spread the love. Be kind to each other 💗 Just a small reminder…

Loves,

Praying

It’s Monday, but not a typical Monday. It’s one of those horrible days in life. I’m sitting here in tears and praying.

I’m far away from my family and my brother. He is under a surgery at the moment. I have a brother in a wheelchair and he is having a major back surgery. I tried to be there twice, but it didn’t go as planned. Therefore, I decided to wait until it was confirmed, but it went too quick this time.

The surgery will take up to 6 hours and distance makes it even longer. I’m constantly calling my parents and asking for an update every other minute. It’s more difficult to hear them down and upset. Things are not easy at the moment, but I’m really praying for a positive outcome.

My brother is the strongest and smartest boy. He is only 17 years old, but he is more mature than me. I’m super proud of him. He runs his little car business and doing incredibly good for himself. Nothing stops him and that’s what makes him extra special. I can’t wait to see him growing and winning this world.

Sunday

Happy Sunday,

It’s been some emotional days. There is nothing in this world that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts, but I feel much better now. I decided to stand up and get back to myself. Everything will be ok in the end, right? …

After a long time, I put on makeup and went out for breakfast with my husband at the Dallowoy Terrace. Ahh… It’s so beautiful there! We had a yummy breakfast and enjoyed the atmosphere. Just after, we went for a long drive. That’s my kind of Sunday 

We have a lot of work to do today, therefore I will catch you all later.

Lots of love,

Nivetha Vijay

Swamyamvarra

This morning, I woke up to a frustrating email from the founder of Swamyamvarra Wedding Exhibition. It’s been almost two months since the show got cancelled, but the issue is still unsolved.

I got some answers and seen certain things, but I didn’t want to be unprofessional as my brand is involved in this matter. Not only that, it’s not my personality. It doesn’t suit my character and I don’t find the need to bring anyone down to make myself better. This is a bit different situation, but I’m still keeping my mouth closed. Why? I feel bad for the founder, but not in a good way.

I’m really frustrated hence why I posted on Instagram and it’s my first time. Argg! I don’t like to use my platforms to share negativity, but I was too quick today. Anyways, my husband is handling this case now and I think that’s the best as I’m tired of it. For me, it’s done and dusted.

I will remain calm and continue my journey.

I will be ok.

Hi all,

I’m back in London.

I’m very moody these days. Maybe a bit homesick? Or disappointed? Hopeless? Overthinking? I don’t know.

I can’t be bothered to do anything at the moment. I guess I’m having one of those days where you just want to lay in your bed and do nothing. I’m feeling a bit down and strange at the same time. I know. It’s a weird feeling …

I will hopefully be ok soon.

Disappointed.

Hi loves,

I’m currently in Oslo. I came yesterday in rush for my brother’s surgery as it was unexpected. We went to the hospital today for an assessment, but it didn’t go as we hoped. After being sent back and forth, we were told that they could not do the surgery as they were missing one of the results. This is the second time …

I mean everything happens for a reason, but this is ridiculous. We were mentally prepared and ready for a change.
Oh well. I still believe in God and I think he knows what’s best in this situation.

Anyways, I will try to stay positive and enjoy my time with my family. For me, it’s all about being there for them at any time. That’s the little thing I can do for them …

I will catch you all soon.

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay

Changes.

Happy Wednesday,

The sun is shining in London today and it feels great.

It’s been a while, I know. I have been working a lot lately with our new collections and planning a couple of projects. The best is yet to come.

Apart from that, I decided to be more present in life. I was still good, but I want to be better. When you are on social media and running a business, you can easily spend hours on the phone, but I’m slowly changing that. Whenever I go to bed, I put my phone far away. It makes a huge difference in the morning and the day starts in a better way.

I have also ‘’ cleaned ‘’ through my platforms and removed unnecessary things. I guess I’m getting more mature now? Hm.

Anyways, I hope to be more active with my blog. I’m looking forward warmer days for outfits and fashionable posts. Until then, I will try my best to keep you all entertained during January blues.

I wish you all a bright day

Self-critical

Many of us may be self-critical to a degree, but sometimes it can go to an extent. No matter what I do, I’m very self-critical. It can be anything. On top of that, I’m a perfectionist. It can be good, but very difficult most of the times. Yes, the critical inner voice. We can hear this nasty voice in various areas of our life.

I’m always hard on myself. I criticise and analyse everything I do. I want to give the best all the time and it can be exhausting in the long run. I have my standards and boundaries, but I decided to come out of it. I will start with little things and move slowly forward. It will be a long process, but it will be better for inner me…

Sunday

Happy Sunday,

I hope you all are good.

It’s sunny in London, but very cold. I decided to stay in this weekend and get some work done. I have been organising and planning for this year. I’m super ready for the new opportunities and challenges which I’m looking forward sharing with you all.

Apart from that, I’m not feeling well. But I made it to the gym today. Yey! Seriously, I need to get back to myself. I will hopefully reach my goal without any excuses at this time …

Time to for lunch and more work. I catch you all soon.

Wish you all a great week ahead! Stay motivated and positive

Loves,

New year’s resolutions.

Happy Tuesday,

We are at the very beginning of 2018 and we all want to set our new year’s resolutions to change something in our lives for the better. It can be all from task-oriented goals to aspirational goals.

Task-oriented goals are where you need to take an action to achieve it. Aspirational goals are what you wish to achieve, but it may be out of your control.

It’s easy to write a long list of resolutions, but is it realistic? A few years back, I thought I could change myself into a new person over the night, which is ridiculous and silly.

I learned that changes may take time and trust the process. Take step by step. Set goals that make your heart fulfilled and happy. ‘’ Life is not a competition. Each one is on their own journey. Live according to your choices, capacity, values and principles. ‘’ One of my favourites lines to live by.

Take a moment for yourself and write down what you wish you achieve this year. Create your vision board. Don’t be hard on yourself. Get inspired by your failure. Stay motivated.

I wish you all the best and success.

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay
