This will be a slightly different post for me, but it’s something that’s just swimming in my head at the moment and I think it’s good to talk!
How do you define happiness? Is it achievement in your career? Feeling content in your personal life – be that with a partner, alone or with your cat?! Or is it all about balance?
For me I think it has to be about balance. I love my job, but commute around 2hrs per day to do it; I have great relationships with my close family and love spending time with them; I have been in a long term relationship with my boyfriend and love spending time with him too, he’s my best friend in the world; but it’s also great to catch up with friends either from work or school and just be with the girls!
I hear so many people around me and on tv who talk about what they want to ‘do’ with their lives. Do we really need to know? Don’t we just live it and see where our decisions take us? I think it’s great to have things to aim for but sometimes it’s great to just go with the flow!
I’ve spent far too much time analysing what people say – to me personally, on social networks, and to other people – but recently, since I started blogging, I’ve had a real change of heart. I’ve found something that I really love doing and little things like that don’t play on my mind anymore, I don’t waste my time thinking about petty things like that. I may not get a huge amount of traffic, but I love compiling posts and getting them published and just seeing my little ramble about beauty and fashion have it’s own little spot in the internet universe.
I’m a little ashamed to say that I didn’t really have any hobbies before blogging (other than reading other peoples blogs/watching YouTube videos and spending my money on what they recommended!). I used to come home and loved nothing more than catching up with my favourite tv programmes. I still enjoy a good old tv catch up, but now I feel like I have something else to put my energy into.
My blog is still very much in its infancy, and there are lots of things I’d like to change and learn about, but for now I’m happy just chatting away to anyone who will read and listen about the products and things that make me happy.
I hope you have all had a good week! It’s only bloody Friday! 😀
I won some tickets to The Clothes Show Live via Twitter so that’s what I’m doing today. I will get a post up as soon as I can but I am working all weekend after that.
Please let me know what you think of this post as I haven’t done one like this before.
Lots of love
