Little Life Update


Pre-Warning, this post is a bit of a ramble. So, if you don't wanna listen to a 21 year old ramble and chat about her life, then click off. Actually, please don't, kind of need the views lol. I guess I'm kind of writing this post, as I'm feeling rather chipper. I hit rock bottom about a week ago, and I guess it was a kick up the back side. Since then, I've been working my ass off and keeping my self busy. I've been exercising daily, eating healthy (ish) and making sure I get out of the house every day. I'm also taking care of my self more, with a skin-care regime and taking care of my hair. I feel so so much better than I did this time last week, so it really does just prove that everything can get better with time, and a bit of self-motivation.

I've also become much happier, since realising what I've got right in front of me. I'm so lucky to have the life I have. I used to focus on the shit things, but I realise it wasn't doing me any favours, and just making me feel low. Yes, I had to defer Uni due to ill health, but, I now make money daily from doing what I love, writing. I also have more time to blog and focus on my photography, which also makes me happy. Over the past few weeks I've had amazing opportunities given to me because of my blog. From going to blogging events, to meeting new blogger friends (shout out to the LN gals), to getting more sponsored opportunities, including working with ASDA. All this couldn't of been done without me deferring Uni for a little white, so, every silver linings eh?

I'm also incredibly lucky to have to my family & friends around me. When I hit rock bottom, my friends and family were there to support me. I couldn't thank them enough. They're so supportive. Also, I guess all this has made me realise, that no-one can help me, but me. And it's so true. Although medication can help, it's not going to solely help. You need self-motivation to really kick the demons up the ass, you only have one life, so make it worth it. I'm learning to take every day as it comes, and treat every day like it's your last. As, tomorrow may never come, and yesterday has gone. A bit morbid, but it's true.  So, that's my happy/ motivational, rant. 

How are you all?

  7. You go girl! As soon as I read it was a rant I wanted to read on (I rant a lot on my blog!). You definitely are doing so much better with the help of your own motivation. I hit rock bottom just a few months ago - since then I've transferred university's, met amazing and more positive people, and had awesome experiences. It's all about helping ourself and I'm so glad I made such big changes! I wish the best for you and I think you're going to get better and better from here. I just stumbled upon your blog, but I'm going to be your newest follower once I'm done with this comment! I'm excited to see all the things you do and hear all your thoughts in the coming days and weeks. Cheers!
