Life’s too short..

You probably think that this is one of those cliche posts but honestly I think that all the little cliche things in life are often true.

Recently, I was sat thinking about the passing of time and how fast 2017 has gone so far. Then a sudden realisation hit me hard, that life really is too short. Time is precious and it made me have a sudden urge to ring everyone important in my life and tell them I love them because life is too short not to tell people how you feel.

There are so many things in life that we put off and say that we’ll do it later on or another day because we’re scared of what people might think of us or that we could be judged in a particular way. People don’t do things that they want to do or wear what they want to wear. As humans we often stop ourselves from doing all these different things which make us happy to try and make others, who we actually don’t really like or know that much, happy. Life is way too short to be doing this.

We never know what is going to happen, unfortunately and as morbid as it sounds people die every single day and the truth is that we never actually know what day it will be us or someone who we love. It could even be that guy or girl who you liked and never told. I know that this sounds incredibly morbid but its important, we always think its not going to happen to us, until that day comes and it does happen to us or someone we love or the guy/girl you liked and never told. Life is too short to live like that, tell the people who you love that you love them and be you. We often go through life not telling people how we feel, that we like them or that we love them just because we’re too scared. Then we waste valuable time by constantly battling with our own brain, asking ourselves.what if they say this or what if they say that and in reality we never really find out what they would say.

I guess part of this post was inspired by me thinking about how much time I’ve wasted, precious minutes and hours, not telling people how I feel and not doing things that make me happy in fear of what others will think.

I’m not really sure where I was going with this post but I guess what I’m trying to say is life is way too short to not be who your are and say how you feel. Tell your family and friends that you love them. Life is too short so don’t waste it, live everyday as if it was your last day on this earth.

Thanks for reading my random thoughts and rambles,

Saying goodbye to 2016

It’s that time again where another year has passed and I feel like it has gone so quickly.

I wanted to write this blog post as something for me to look back on in the future but also to share with all of you as an end to 2016 on the blog and to look ahead to 2017 together.I started this blog on the 30th December 2015, and honestly I didn’t know how well it would all go.

A year later, I can honestly say I think it is one of the best decisions I have ever made, I love writing blog posts now more than ever. I often have random ideas spring to mind, sometimes at like stupid o’clock when I should be asleep but my creative mind is keeping me up!

I am a person who believes that setting yourself goals is important to help you to progress, whether that’s making progress in something which you do or growing as a person.I’m not very good at talking about myself and my achievements, so you will have to excuse me whilst I stare at my laptop keyboard for hours trying to write this next part of my post.

2016 has been a pretty hectic year for me, but overall a good year.

In march I was lucky enough to go to see Adele in Birmingham with my sister and it was honestly one of the highlights of 2016.

I set myself goals about achieving the grades I wanted in my GCSE exams and when i collected my results I was very happy that all my hard work had payed off. Throughout 2016 I have also made so many memories that I will treasure forever,spent time with family and made so many new friends.

Don’t get me wrong 2016 hasn’t always been plain sailing, it has had its tough times too.I can honestly say I wouldn’t have got through some of those tougher times without some of the people who are closest to me (you know who you are).

Looking ahead to 2017, I am more determined than ever to get up every morning and chase my dreams in the hope of making them a reality.I, also want to start saying “yes” and to the majority of people reading this i’m sure your all probably a little confused.I’m often the kind of person who overthinks and turns down different opportunities. So in this next year I just want to start saying yes to more opportunities and see where it takes me.

In terms of any other goals, I don’t particularly have any, I just want enjoy every single moment I can with my friends and family and work hard to make every day count.

I hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas, if you celebrate it, and you have a wonderful new year.

Appreciate the little things

This is probably going to be one of those cliche posts, but I really think its important to appreciate the little things in life.

Life is so delicate and precious. You honestly never know what is just around the corner so appreciate everything you have right here right now because you never know when it may all get taken away.

So tell your friends and family that you love them, smile to people who you walk past in the street and take every single opportunity that you get!

We all sometimes forget to focus on the little things, we spend hours upon hours thinking about the next big thing that’s happening in our lives.Whether its leaving school,going to uni,moving house, getting married or having children.

Don’t get me wrong the bigger things in life are important too but I really think that we sometimes forget about the little things, in between all these big events, which actually mean so much.I guess this post is not only a reminder for you but also something for me to come back to when i’m in need of a little reminder.

There’s so many little things that happen in between all of these big events that we don’t think much of at the time, but when you look back you realise actually those little things were really some of the best.

Whether the little things in life to you are something as simple as texting that friend you haven’t spoken to in a while or having a night in with your family watching a film.

I honestly urge you to just talk about the little things in life or even just to occasionally take a moment to yourself to think about all of the little things that have happened recently in your life and appreciate them.

More blog posts to come soon.

All things autumn.

There’s something about this time of year that I just love, when the leaves start to turn all different colours and go all crunchy when you walk over them.

Don’t get me wrong I ┬álove summer, the longer and lighter nights, the going out to bbq’s with friends and the picnics in the park but there’s just something I love about this time of year SO much!

I love autumn because of the cosy jumpers and the wrapping up warm. I mean, anyone that knows me well will know i’m a huge lover of warm knitted jumpers and huge scarfs that i can almost hide under.

There’s something which I find so special about cosy autumn nights, all snuggled up in a blanket in front of the fire with family and friends after an autumn walk.I JUST LOVE IT!

I’m excited to continue writing more frequent blog posts.I hope you enjoyed reading this and I’d love to know what your favourite thing to do at this time of year is!

Everyone’s definition of success is different.

Every individual has their own personal definition of what the word success means to them.

I can’t even remember how many times I must have said it recently but I’m going to say it again now.Everyone has their own definition of success.On the 25th of August 2016 I, along with thousands of other teenagers, received my GCSE results. This day could have gone one of two ways: a day filled with happiness and probably the highlight of my entire time at high school or the most disappointing day of my entire time at school.Thankfully for me the 25th of August was a very happy day

I feel like this point has marked the end of a long chapter in my life and I thought that writing a post like this would be the perfect way to reflect upon this chapter of my life. People often get caught up in comparing themselves with others, I’m definitely guilty of doing this from time to time.Exam results and the process of exams can often be made slightly competitive.Whether its discussing how many hours of revision you did that night, or how late you stayed up to revise or the amount of A*/A grades you achieved.

Personally, I believe that its not all about the grades that are on that piece of paper on results day. Its about the amount of work you have put in leading up to that day.Some people are naturally academic people, but if you not one of these people, it doesn’t mean that you should feel disappointed in your results because you may have worked equally as hard.Reflecting upon this chapter, I’m so proud of where I have ended up, it has taken me a while to realise it but I worked hard for the grades that I received and I can honestly say I tried my best.

whether you opened your GCSE results to say A’s and A*’s or not.It doesn’t matter you worked hard and tried your best and that is all that matters. There are always many different paths which you can take in life and some of these may not be the typical route through education but you only have to look at many extremely successful people in life to realise that no matter your grades if you find something which you truly love and work hard at it you can achieve anything which you want to.

Thank you for reading this post and I hope that you have recently received results that you are happy with. Remember that some of life’s greatest opportunities arise when you are least expecting them, so take every chance you get to pursue your dreams.

Always keep in mind that “Everything happens for a reason.”
