It’s so easy to get into the rut of believing everything that your mind tells you. From experience I think it’s better to always follow your gut feeling.

For instance, there have been so many times in my life over the past year where I’ve thought, “should I do this?” or, “but what if?”

My conclusion is, life is too short to think like that. Go for it! It’s not a good decision, most likely there is another way to look at the situation. There is always a way to ‘fix’ a situation.

  • Keep a positive mind.
  • Do your best.
  • Keep fighting.
  • You can do this!

Thats everything from me! I hope you’re all having a good week this week!

I’m Back.

Hello hello. I’m back. Missed me?

How was your weekend?

Mine was, relaxing to say the least. I got so much reading done. I started reading a new book called Everything Everything. It’s about a girl who can’t leave the house as she will get sick. A new family moved in next door and their teenage son is relentless in finding a way to get to know her. 

Its a very sweet book. I’m halfway through already. I spent some time with my family which was great. I took my cousins child swimming yesterday, it was his first time.

Today I’ve hit the ground running. I’m glad to be back into my normal routine. I got up fairly early. I headed straight to the gym. This afternoon I’ve just been focused on getting some writing done. Recently, I’ve been having a lot of inspiration for my book. So I’ve been getting a lot of writing done for that.

I’ve got a day off work tomorrow. I’ve got a lot of appointments to get through. It’s going to be a busy day, but exciting nonetheless.

I hope you have a fantastic week. ❤

Things I’m Loving This February.

It’s that time of month again. It’s time to discuss some of the things I’ve been loving this February.

Admittedly I don’t have as many things to include in this months list. I didn’t want to repeat some of the things that I had included in my previous favourite posts.

I’m not usually a big fan of tic tac’s. I was in the convenience shop earlier this month I came across these and I had to try them.

They are lovely and so refreshing!

Now I set myself a little bit of a reading challenge this year. I feel like I’m doing so well so far. I’m really pleased with myself. This month I came across these two books. Let me tell you now, they are the most influential books I’ve ever read. I had heard of The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck a couple of months ago and hadn’t had the time to purchase it and give it a read. I’m about halfway through it and I’m just amazed by the content. Seriously, they’re both worth a read.

I wrote a little about Reasons To Stay Alive here.

I’m in love with the scent of this shower gel. It was so cheap too, I think I bought it for £1 from Superdrug. I will definitely be repurchasing this!

I’ve been really into getting baths this month. I’ve found them incredibly relaxing. I’ve found it’s been that much more relaxing with a candle a face mask and a good book.  So this is my favourite candle at the minute. I bought it because of ‘H’ of course! :p

My Answers

How did my blog start?

Actually, I’ve started this blog over and over a couple of different times. I started the blog so that I had a place I could talk about the things that interested me. I also wanted to use this blog as a way to make friends and communicate with others who had the same interests as me.

I’ve had this blog for a while now and I grow more and more in love with blogging day by day. It definitely serves as an outlet for me to express my thoughts. It really makes me smile to see the feedback I get from blogging. It really does make my day when someone comments on my posts.

2017 will be an awesome year. I’m looking forward to seeing where my blog will be going. I have so many different and positive posts planned. I can’t wait to share them all with you all. ❤

Two Pieces of Advice

I don’t know if I’m qualifies to be giving blogging advice to be honest. But here goes. 

Number 1:

Keep to a regular posting schedule. Your followers will know when to check back to your blog. And, it allows you to create posts that are more structured and developed.

I usually post Tuesdays and Thursdays. I post journal posts as and when I feel like it.

Number 2:

Engage. Engage. Engage. Engagement is so important. You can’t expect your blog to be found if you don’t put yourself out there. It’s really great to get to know other bloggers. Explore their blogs, find out their interests and communicate. The blogging community is a great community to be apart of.

Nominations:

  1. Stephanie
  2. Celtics345
  3. Alli
  4. Christine
  5. A Courageous Mess

Thank you for reading,

New Year, New Perspective.

kakaotalk_photo_2016-12-26-23-24-21_90

Everyone experiences difficult times. Since returning from South Korea I’ve been going through a rough time. I’m not adjusting back into England very well as well as a few other things.

Of course I have missed England, mostly my family and friends. I’ve missed home cooked foods. Especially roast chicken dinners! As much as I love Korea, there are some things in England that I do prefer. Christmas for example!

Since coming back I’ve gotten myself into this rut that I can’t seem to break out of. I have to force myself to eat. Going to sleep isn’t easy. Damn insomnia! When I eventually fall to sleep, I find it hard to wake up. Then I have a lingering migraine all day. I think it’s due to stress. I can only do so much. I’m trying, I guess that’s the main thing.

Next year is going to be different. What I’ve worked out recently is, it’s important to pick out the people in your life who truly care. The other’s that are in your life who don’t ask you how you are, even know they understand that you’re going through a tough time. Those are the people I need to let go of. They are negative and self-centred people.

As cliche as it sounds, you do only live once. And it’s important to remember that THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Not someone else’s. You cannot constantly be following what someone else wants to do all the time. You cannot keep asking them “how are you, did you have a good day?” to which they respond with, “Yeah thanks.” then the conversation ends. They never ask about you. Or how your day was. Or what you did. Friendships/relationships work both ways. It takes equal effort from both sides.

I’m excited to start the new year. I have lots of things planned. I’m planning on taking a TOPIK test (Korean proficiency language test) next April in London. I’m thinking about doing a masters degree, maybe in events management or business. I want to start a YouTube channel, like a proper one! Haha. I want to get back into filmmaking again.

It’s important to find something you love and go for it. Life is too short to be stopped from doing something that you love because of circumstances or people.

I cannot wait to see what the new year brings~
