University post #3

Three weeks of life at University and I’ll tell you, there’s been many ups and downs! Time has flown by, and already I am deep into work. It seems like the pile of assignments keeps on growing and there is no end! I am writing this post on a Wednesday morning with a freshly madeContinue reading “University post #3”

What is the one word that motivates you in life?

As we start to move out of lockdown, I’ve been wanting to write a more positive blog post. So, this post is centred around one thing: what is the one word that drives you forward in life? Which word, if there is one that exists, pushes you and motivates you to the absolute extreme? IsContinue reading “What is the one word that motivates you in life?”

What is happiness to you?

If I asked you the question ‘what makes you happy?’ a lot of the responses would involve materialistic things, such as ‘food’, ‘money’ or even ‘a glass or two of wine’. Those things make me happy too. However, don’t these things just offer momentary happiness? We get the item we so desperately think we needContinue reading “What is happiness to you?”

Looking back on 2020❤️

This year has been so different for us all, and we have all found ways of coping with the new adaptations we’ve had to make to our lives and lifestyles. Some of us have struggled more than others, but to some degree we have all found it hard. However, I want to take a momentContinue reading “Looking back on 2020❤️”

Let’s Normalise This

I know I talk about it a lot, however, things have not changed. Every single one of us have insecurities, the majority being about our body.

What’s it gonna be like now?

Recently I have realised that, since the UK is slowly leaving the lockdown situation (emphasis on the slowly), it’s time to start getting back to normal – but what is normal? I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that I definitely have lost myself a little bit over quarantine: lack of skin careContinue reading “What’s it gonna be like now?”

Just a little reminder…

Nowadays, I feel like we all think that from time to time we have to do certain things to prove ourselves to society; do things for others. For example, quite a lot of the time we feel like we have to hide away our emotions and thoughts so that we don’t ‘burden’ others. It’s okContinue reading “Just a little reminder…”

It’s OK to be selfish.

If anyone ever comes to me looking upset, down or just seeking advice, this is the suggestion I typically give: sometimes you have got to be selfish in life and put yourself before others before you can actually help anyone else overcome their problems. In the society today, a lot of the time people areContinue reading “It’s OK to be selfish.”

Social media & Having Self-Confidence

Thursday 20th February 2020 Today’s blog post is a difficult topic for me, since I have struggled with self-confidence and self-belief in the past. But, I believe going through this struggle that every teenager goes through at some point, or maybe even also struggles with it, and so it is a very apt topic toContinue reading “Social media & Having Self-Confidence”
