Hey there, you beautiful bunch.
Over the past few weeks I have most definitely been looking at my life. The changes, my mental health and the things I have learned in 2017 have definitely shaped the way I think and feel. As of right now, I am a much more grounded person- give or take a few tantrums over jeans not fitting the way I imagined.
This lil’ blog of mine is something I am so proud off. From the opportunities I have been given and the people I have met along the way- blogging has really effected my life. So thank you, you wonderful humans, for giving me a place to moan.
Clothing to me, has always been something I hated but loved equally as much at the same time. Yet, after excepting the fact I am never going to have the body of Claudia Schiffer or the face of Scarlett Johansson, I can finally drop the idea of ‘what I am supposed’ to look like and embrace the face (and body) I have been given.
For years I have been quite unhappy with the way I look, not just with the clothes hanging in my wardrobe but the body that filled them. You see, when my mental health declines, I put a lot of weight on. Neglecting myself in a way many wouldn’t deem neglect. Yet, it is.
I am not for one moment saying you have to lose weight, nor should you. I am simply saying I needed to feel better in my own skin and losing weight, finding my style and making myself a priority has definitely made me feel much better within myself. Finding confidence to further not only my independence but my blog, career has really given me a different outlook when I comes to achieving the thing I never thought possible.
As I sit back and proof read the above snippet I realize how deep, I have gotten, in fact how deep my blog is. And it is far from the blog I initially thought I wanted. My initial idea was one of a space where someone could go for just five minutes, have a brew and find something to smile at. In fact my blog is very much representative of myself. A bit emotional, slightly sarcastic and a little bit Yorkshire.
I realize that there isn’t really a point to this blog post. I just started writing and hoped for the best. Tomorrow you can see the amazing weekend I’ve had to celebrate my birthday, but for now, I hope you enjoyed this little blog. Cause I really enjoyed writing it.
