Two years ago my home was filled with all the things I thought it should be; ornaments, sentimental keepsakes, wardrobes full of clothes, drawers full of makeup, furniture to fill the space in each room. It always felt a mess and this would really stress me out. I would clean up, and by the next day
everything had gone back to the way it was before. I could never figure out where I was going wrong. I love interior design, and scrolling those beautiful interior decor images on Pinterest is something I love to do. I’d always be left thinking, why can’t my home look like that?
I turn 30 next year. As I get ready to leave my twenties behind, it feels like a good time to reflect on all the life lessons I’ve learned so far. I am so different to who I was a decade ago and I have these lessons to thank for that. I’m wondering if any of these echo with you, or if there are any you would add. Let me know what they are in the comments.
When I started a blog, my head was full of negative reasons not to. You don’t live anywhere glamorous like London or Paris, you don’t have time, you don’t know where to start, people won’t be interested in what you have to say. These are all reasons, I told myself not start a blog. Doubts.
I wanted to start a blog, because I wanted an outlet where I could create and share content I thought like minded people may find valuable, and could trust. I’d been reading and enjoying blogs for years, and I’d imagine what my own might look like, but I never had the confidence to start my own. All the reasons above stopped me, until now. Instead of thinking about the negatives, I started thinking about the positives, and that’s what gave me the push I needed to take the leap. Let me outline a few of these for you.
