Its been so long since I sat down with a cuppa to have a chat with all of you lovey lot! Eek I feel like it’s my first day at work! And all of you are my lovely colleagues! I would not be in this position if it wasn’t for your constant support and loveliness so massive virtual hugs to you.
So, what’s been going on?
TRAVELLING THE EAST COAST – AUSTRALIA
Ahhh the land down under, such a beautiful country, for all of you that aren’t already aware I have spent the last few weeks travelling the east coast of Australia with my wonderful boyfriend, it was absolutely amazing and I 100 percent would reccomend visiting if you can, and I apologise in advance for the upcoming holiday spam pictures on instagram (#sorrynotsorry). One thing I will be completely honest about is, I always thought I wanted to live in Australia, it was always like an elusive dream that I had. But when I was there, as stunning as it is, it made me realise that I need to build my own home and happiness, in England. I love the countryside, the heritage, the culture here. But I’ve spent most of my life running away from it and trying to find the beauty in over countries rather than my own. Thinking that happiness exists in a different country or a different place, but happiness starts and ends with me. I have spent that last 5 years travelling to the most beautiful countries, and i’ve finally realised it’s time to build a solid happy foundation for me, and a home in which I don’t feel like I need to run away from. So that’s a key resolution this year for me, finding my happy home.
BEING MY OWN BOSS.
Wow. this is a huge change for me, I honestly can’t believe that little old me is in charge of my own proffesional life. (Like OMG mom am I like a real adult now?!) I’m not going to sugar coat it, monday morning after the initial smug happiness of knowing I didn’t need to take a freezing cold commute into an office. PANIC STRUCK. Soooo… what do I actually do now? I thought as I gulped my second coffee in an hour staring blankly at my laptop (god damn you jetlag). I have had 3 weeks off of total bliss away from the all consuming world of social media and I almost felt like I was starting all over again in this crazy online industry. And suddenly I started to spriral into a self doom vortex. Have I made a mistake? Can I do this? Where’s my motivation gone? WRITERS BLOCK HIT ME LIKE A MOTHER F…. But at that point, I knew I had to have a little word with myself and ground myself, because truth be told I know deep down this is right for me, no matter how hard it gets. So it’s time for me to put my big girl shoes on, step up to the plate and produce content, every single day. Pray for me ladies!
FINDING MY FEET IN THE INDUSTRY
Woahhhh this industry is a bit of a mind field (to say the least). Sometimes i’m like wait, do I even fit in? Of course I love beauty and make up and fitness and fashion and allll the other lush girlie things we get all this juicy daily content about. But that’s not what I am passionate about, i’m passionate about helping you live your dream life, about wellness, about organic products, veganism, yoga and all the ‘woo woo’ things. And sometimes I feel a bit lost within the sea of all the other popular content and I wonder where I fit in, or if I fit in at all. But in all honesty I am still finding myself and I just want my content to reflect that and reflect my truth, so I plan on sharing that journey with you and hope that it can resonate with you!
I am only just beginning this journey, and I have no doubt that it’s going to be complicated, messy and a bit crazy but aren’t all the best things in life?
Thanks for reading!
