So I took a hiatus…

I can’t believe that my last post was in January!

Time really does fly when you’re on a journey of self love and discovery.

So there’s a lot to discuss. Let’s start with my health and weight journey.

Since January I have actually lost 2 stone and I’m actually so proud of myself and how far I’ve come. I love working out I find it’s good for me physically ovbs and mentally – really sets me in a good mood, allowing me to focus on staying on a positive vibration. Healthy eating I can do but I do find it a chore some times ( I know it’s bad but I’m a self confessed lover of McDonald’s haha) but none the less I do bare in mind that every thing is about balance πŸ’ͺ🏽

This year I really wanted to focus on loving myself and speaking up for me because at the end of the day no one will have your back like you do. It’s always okay to voice how you feel or an opinion to people in your life. This issue is with the delivery. I have learnt over time that depending on the delivery your message can sometimes get lost.

If I feel angry or frustrated I normally take a step back and evaluate what I feel and how I can portray this in an effective way allowing resolution.

So far so good and I intend to keep learning how to voice how I feel in a productive way – but remember that you should always bare in mind when you should be assertive because the world is a cold place at times. Don’t let people take your kindness as a weakness πŸ’•

I’m 25. A quarter of a century. I’m still young but why do I feel so old?!

I’m at that age where people around me are with their long term partners, getting married and having kids.

Me. I’m just here trying to make it through life. Even though I know eventually I will meet some one who will be the right person for me, it can be frustrating that every one else is on this path that you are no where near.

You really shouldn’t compare your journey to others but it is hard!! Especially when you are faced with couples on social media doing things you would like to eventually do.

I know what I would like in some one and I’m just not willing to settle for less just to ensure I get on this path every one seems to be going down..

However I am really just trying to focus on myself and my growth. I have many fun things planned this summer, so who knows what the future may hold.

A Wonderful Time of YearπŸŽ„

Merry Christmas everybody! I hope you are all enjoying the festivities with family and friends.

It’s such a lovely time of year to celebrate what is really important in life and the love people share between each other.

Hopefully most people know that this time of year is about celebrating your beliefs and/or the love for loved ones but like any holiday there is an essence of materialism.

Apart from proud parents sharing the moments of joy from their children opening gifts from Santa, I think it is highly distasteful for adults to sit there opening gift after gift.

Of course it’s lovely to receive nice gifts for Christmas but continually showing off what you got is wrong imo.

What kind of message are we sending to the already confused and some what lost younger generation who already deem material goods at such high regard. We must remember that what really matters is family and friends and not showing off for Instagram or snapchat which forever creates a false sense of reality!

I’m not saying it’s wrong to give or receive presents at this time because even myself received lovely gifts but I just don’t agree with the constant showing off when it comes to material goods.

As well as it being a time to celebrate love it is a time to be thankful. Be thankful for the family and friends you have around you to celebrate these moments. Be thankful for the abundance of food we get to endeavour at Christmas. Be thankful for being healthy and alive as this time of year can be very hard for people who aren’t as lucky to have the blessings we do.

Many people spend it alone and Christmas can make people feel worse about things they are going through right now. It’s a time to be kind and understanding as we would hope for the same if we were alone.

I hope everyone enjoys this festive time πŸŽ„βœ¨
