I recently read a really stupid post about why women with big boobs are the best girlfriends and there was a silly one about how easy it is to get plastic surgery meaning ‘no excuse for small boobs” which bloody annoyed me. The only thing that has stopped me going completely mental is the fact that it honestly was a very stupid post that was only made to get views and laughs. But it opens so many doors as I thought about it.
Why on earth do people expect others to change themselves in any way for them. The only person you should ever change for is yourself and as I have said previously you are the one that will have to live with you for the rest of your life so don’t worry what others think.
Now, I know its easier said than done but it is so important to love yourself and to really be comfortable in your own skin. Basically I feel a bit of an idiot because as I’m writing this I’m thinking- well only an hour ago I was shunning away compliments from a friend because (and I quote) “Haha that’s silly”. Why should that be my first reaction to a compliment? Why shouldn’t I agree? Why should I put myself down?
Well firstly I have no idea what to say to a compliment, and secondly I genuinely disagreed with them. This is not a “fishing for compliments” etc thing. This is my start to loving myself.
As you can see I have put a picture of myself with the part of me I like the least. That being my smile and my breasts. So I am going to start something new. Each day I will pick at least two things that I am happy with about myself. Rather than pointing out everything that I think is a flaw I will say “Today I love myself because…”. This might sound stupid, or cheesy but honestly I could not care less. At the end of the day my happiness is as important as any one else’s.
How you feel about yourself will shine through so if you feel negative- people will be able to tell (sub-consciously) and they will react accordingly. Always try your best to walk tall (I can walk as tall as 5″1- but i’ll keep trying!) and always try your best to just love yourself. I’m not saying have a sudden turn around from “jeez I hate myself today” to “Wow, I think i’m amazing in every way.” But you should certainly give it a go.
Today I love myself because my eyes smile too…
What do you love yourself for today?
This is one of the best presentations I have ever seen in my life – on any subject. If you have a spare 15 minutes, do yourself a favour and watch this video.
So, the other day while being rather Ill I watched a whole series of a Netflix original “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”. What started out as “I’ll just watch a couple of episodes” turned into “oh it’s night time”
This show tells the story of a woman who along with three other young women were kidnapped when they were young and kept in a bunker for 15 years by a crazy reverend who insisted he was saving them from the rapture.
In the first episode you meet the ladies when they get set free. Being dubbed “the Indiana Mole women” got them onto a New York talk show.
From here the seemingly most “together” one of them all decides she wants to stay in New York to pursue her dreams. But let’s face it… She has been kept underground for 15 years- she has no idea how the world works these days.
We follow a quirky character who always shows optimism and many levels of PTSD who always tries her best to fix everything and make everyone happy. One who often succeeds in making myself smile. She’s an interesting woman who never ceases to be herself- no matter how weird she may be.
So here is something I’ve learnt from her that I intend to take with me further; “You can stand anything for ten seconds.”
So here goes… 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.
This unique show is one that I would recommend to anyone who needs an uplift or something to help them get through the day. Through fantastic one liners, and moving stories this show provides an excellent escape from the outside world, letting you run off into the world of Kimmy.
Kimmy is an adorable human being and I hope I can be as positive and as adorable as her one day.
I have just re read this and felt an overwhelming sense of something… not sure what…but it was something. I guess I forgot my determination.
I often find myself sitting on my sofa blankly staring into my cup of tea thinking “what now?”
Almost 2 months ago I finally gave into my friends nagging and applied to university to do Child Nursing. I have never had confidence in myself that I would be accepted, but all of my friends constantly pushed me and told me I could do it. So I did. I sat down, whacked out a personal statement, dug up a person for a reference, and entered all of my details. Honestly, it took me about two hours to do all of that, mainly due to the fact I didn’t realise I only had three days to submit everything.
Eventually I hit that submit button, I agreed to the terms and conditions and paid what I need to. I then sat there, with my cup of tea thinking “what now?”
For a few weeks…

Lately (like always) I have been thinking A LOT about home. Thinking about the fact that I am always trying to escape it. I always seem to want to leave and explore and have adventures else where. I was on a train taking in the delightful views that my home has to offer and I thought- how much of my home have I actually explored? Not much in all honesty. So while I am trying to save up to explore other places I have decided I am going to try and be more proactive about adventuring around my home. It’s so easy to get to some beautiful and amazing places without actually having to leave the country so why don’t I do that? I feel so cooped up and pooped out working constantly and dreaming about days of adventure when I could just hop on a train and explore. Get away from all my worries. Get away from work. Don’t forget where your home is guys. You might be missing something beautiful while dreaming for something “bigger and better”. Home exploring… Go!
