I saw this quote yesterday and fell in love with it. It's something that has really touched me somewhere I can't explain. I don't usually talk about personal things on Avenue M as much as I probably should, but at the start of the year I was desperately unhappy. I don't know why, but I wasn't satisfied... I just felt negative, but knew how to hide it well. I never had days like the above quote. I always woke up feeling 'meh'. I don't consider it depression, but I know it wasn't normal to be having such spells either.
I've come a long way I think. I love life. I am excited about my future. I laugh and enjoy myself so much more and it's getting easier and easier to not care what people think. I have days where I don't feel fantastic but my outlook has changed overall... there's always the chance to make a day better. Whenever I start to feel unmotivated or completely hopeless it doesn't drag on... I feel like my eyes have finally opened up to see that there is always a solution. The bigger picture is a beautiful artwork and the present is just a small detail of the huge painting that is my life.
I was watching Katy the other day, and she mentioned that life is so short. Make the most of it. And this quote from my beautiful friend Hannah's blog is something I love too:
Fall in love too quickly. Eat the piece of cake. Dance in the rain.
Wear red lipstick for no reason. Be happy. Watch your favorite movie.
Send yourself some flowers. Go out in public without makeup.
Try something new (Middle Eastern food, anyone?).
Splurge on that handbag you've been eyeing for months. Tell that special someone how you feel.
Take a chance. Take a risk.
Speaking of happy, this necklace did just that! It's absolutely beautiful and was a gift from the girls at StyleLately. It's such an awesome site: the postage was prompt, the packaging is so cute and they have a marvellous range of jewellery items. The necklace I'm wearing in this post is available in plenty of different colours to match all your funky outfits. I had better skidaddle, I have lots of English homework to complete and I need to savour some of the limited concentration I have left! Talk soon xo
P.S: For those of you have been curious about how Roaccutane is going; it's ok. I've been on it for about 110 days now and have noticed pretty minor improvements but it's to be expected. Things should start clearing up fully by the start of September. In the meantime, I'll just keep pushing through, it'll be worth it in the end. :)
