Motivational Monday & HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME ♥


My birthday was actually Saturday but oh well.

The past couple of weeks have been really all over the place and it's took me a while to get my head screwed on to the point where I can actually see hope in the future. 

I'm normally a very shy person and tend to keep myself to myself with problems, unless I'm close with you, but after everything that's happened over the past couple of weeks, it's made me change the way I think. Instead of sitting and home and thinking that all these different experiences might be nice and then carry on sitting behind my computer, I'm trying to make the effort to get out there and actually live those experiences.

This weekend I actually did this and for the most part it was successful. Instead of sitting at home and wondering "what if", I actually went for it and I'm so happy that I did.

I know this is a bit vague for readers but if there's anything that I've learnt from this break-up is that my life is what I make of it. I can sit at home and feel sorry for myself but I know choose to get out there and live my life!

take a chance

  4. Happy belated birthday love! So glad to hear that you pushed yourself to go out and start living life. Sometimes it's soooo much easier to just sit in and imagine what you could be doing instead of actually getting your sh*t together and doing it haha x
