A little more about me
21 May 2015
Does the world need another blog? I am not sure of the answer, but I am going to just go ahead and assume it’s a yes.
This is my first post and I thought I would take this time to give you a little bit more about me and what I will be writing about.
I think I have the usual concerns. “Am I actually able to write and will anyone read this..?”
So, like a lot of things I have done in my life, when I am unsure and I think, “Should I really do this because this is a bit scary?…” I just do it anyway.
Why am I writing this?
Well, there are a couple of reasons, but the main one is, why not? I regularly read articles and blogs that are inspiring, amusing, I don’t agree with and then there are ones where I am like “Ah yes, that’s exactly what I think!!”
Maybe some of you will feel this way about mine… That would be awesome!
If you read something that I write and feel inspired, or you can relate to it, please tell me. I would seriously love that! Plus, it would let me know that people are actually reading what I am transferring from my brain onto screen. I actually hold a lot of useless information in my brain to be honest. I often can’t remember what I did last week, but I remember a whole lot of other stuff! I have been told I have a lot of interesting information and stories in there. Which leads me to the the next part.
I haven’t had the easiest life. If I was trying to explain it to you right now, I wouldn’t even know where to start. But then again, most of us haven’t.
You know the saying ‘Be kinder than necessary because everyone is fighting some kind of battle’ ?
How good is that quote?!
Well, if anyone is ever acting a certain way that I don’t agree with, I just remind myself of this, because so many of us have gone through so much crap and sometimes we all just deserve a bit of non-judgement.
Since I have had my fair share of crap, I pride myself on getting through the shit times and coming out the other end with a smile and always a lesson learnt. I think it has made me a little cynical, but I would like to say that even if that is true, I am still also quite the optimist. Definitely more optimistic than cynical… Actually I think you could probably call me a realist?
So let me tell you what I will be writing about and what you can expect.
It will be a mixture of things. It will be quite a bit about self esteem or lack thereof, you will get lots of openess and honesty and even some wisdom. I will have some tips on how to look and feel good, for those of you that are single, I may even have some dating tips (I have been known to be called ‘the ultimate wingwoman’ but that’s another story– I am not even joking!) and some humour, or at least an attempt at it. I am always up for a good laugh, even if it is at my own expense.
Here are some of my posts that are in the works right now (Yes, one of them says ‘Still waiting for my boobs to grow’)
I am quite an open person, probably even a bit too honest sometimes, but I am ok with that. I have learnt that sometimes this can be a bit confronting for people, but most people love that about me.
I have really started to understand that not everyone is going to like me, and that is ok.
I seriously wish I had felt more like this when I was younger, instead of sometimes getting upset when I thought someone didn’t like me.
Growing up as a teenager and in my early twenties, I wasn’t as proud of my body as I should have been. There was a time when I tried to cover up parts of my figure, or change certain things. I am now proud to say that I am so much more accepting of what I have and I hope by sharing my story, I might be able to help someone that has felt the same way.
Since you have read a bit about me, I would love to hear from you! I would love to read your comments below, or even via a private email if that’s what you would prefer.
