“Single people want relationships, settled people wonder if they’re missing out on something, travelling types miss stability, stable ones are restless, old friends want new friends, new friends miss old friends, and basically everyone my age has some dangling worry trailing around after them that they’re somehow not doing everything, that what they’re doing is not altogether the right thing, that they are missing out….Do not be ashamed. The doubt is natural, and everone you know – yes even that person – carries it sometimes too. Allow yourself to be peaceful. Allow yourself satisfaction in what you have. And if you really don’t like it, allow yourself permission to make changes.”
It’s that time of the week again. I came across this quote on instagram last night and I just fell in love with it; it just perfectly describes how I feel about love. I have been single for quite some time now and, trust me, I am really happy on my own but obviously I wouldn’t mind meeting someone special at some point to be part of my life. Dating in London is so complicated and I am really over it some days. People seem to have so many ‘wants’ and requirements for the people they date. For me, it’s about the simple things. This is all I want…
That time of the week again! Just some quick midweek motivation from me today. Hope you are all having a fantastic week. And remember; you got this! Happy Hump Day :)
Hello everyone. It was a bank holiday weekend here in the UK and I enjoyed it with friends in London, pretty much just drinking and eating my days away! Is there any better way? However, now back into work mode and it’s been very busy at the new job so trying to keep up with the blog is feeling a little challenging sometimes. But I just can’t miss midweek motivational time so thought this quote today was a good little laugh and a great reminder at the same time to always give it your all.
Happy Hump Day everyone! Just a quick midweek motivational message from me today. I love this quote “We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realise we only have one!” Rachel from Nourish talks a lot on her blog (check it out!) about ‘inspiring the doers in this world to dream big, scheme, and take the steps everyday to design the kind of life they want to live’. So I thought I’d share her 5 ways to ditch the life plan + start living.
Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a fantastic week so far? I’ve been in my new job for just over a week now and am loving it. A new job means new people, new goals and new challenges which can all be pretty daunting. So when I saw the quote “Behind every successful woman is herself” the other day; it really spoke to me. It reminded me to always keep believing in myself because behind the success of most women would have been HER drive, HER determination, HER pushing herself and most of all her believing in HERSELF.
I read somewhere recently that when researchers asked twelve hundred elderly people what they had most regretted in life, they were expecting dramatic stories about addictions, adultery, failed relationships or bad business deals. But the truth turned out to be very different as most of them answered the question with one simple line “I wish I had worried less about all the small and unimportant things in my life”. So remember this when you are worrying and stressing about something; ask yourself the question if in 5 years it would really still matter! And if not, just let it go, let it flow and most of all….
