TWO BLOG POSTS I CAN RELATE TO | PART ONE


Hi everyone! Today’s post is going to be a little bit different than the usual, but I feel so inspired, motivated and understood, that I just have to share this with you! This is the first part, because don't think I can do this in one go. 

The posts I’m talking about are both written by Zoe. I’ve never actually talked to her or anything like that, so this isn’t something she has asked for. But after reading these two posts, I feel connected. (In a non-creepy way haha)



The first post I want to address is Just Say Yes. It’s about letting go of the thoughts about what might happen and just go for it.

I sometimes think "If only I never had to worry about anything", but then do I really have anything to worry about anyway? Are the things I worry about really significant in the grand scheme of things? The answer is no, probably not.

I am a total control freak and I get anxious when I need to do things I’m not used to, or when I don’t know what is going to happen. ‘What might happen’ is what keeps me from doing things, fun things, good things, things I’m going to look back on – happy that I’ve pushed myself into doing them.

Another thing that gets me is what people might think of me. Not just “people”, but people I know well. Friends, family, neighbours. That is what had been keeping me from starting a blog or YouTube Channel.

I didn’t realize how much this affected my life and this month I realized I needed to just do more of the things I would’ve said no to.

I made a start: I’ve started a blog, I’m going to the Beautygloss Party in April and I’m going out clubbing in two weeks!

This might seem easy for you, but it is kind of a big deal for me. I want to say yes to a lot more things and this post has inspired and motivated me to do that!

Lots of love, 
Laurie
