Happy 5th birthday to my blog

Woohoo!!

PAAAAAARTY!!!

It’s my blogs 5th birthday this year and what a journey it’s been, yes i said the J word, am I ashamed?..no.

My blog originally started back in 2013, where I used it to outlay my thoughts, my feelings, my emotions and potentially things I didn’t want to tell others. I was going through a pretty shit time, and with counselling I ended up doing this blog.

Now, as much I don’t often blog any more, I do come up with so many different ideas and I’m always thinking “goddamit cat get back into it” but I never do.

So let me tell you, I haven’t gone away. I am still reading blogs in the background. I just, for some reason am censoring my thoughts. But I’ll get there.

Blogging to me is escapism, it’s the thought of having your mind out there, whilst hopefully someone else in the world agrees with your madness.

I may not have a theme for my blog, I may not focus on one particular area. I also have never had a sponsored post, or been given any product to review but my gosh I will write the raw truth as much as I can and never spell check or read it back.

Another reason why I love writing for my blog is that I can write how I like. I work for a team where I write content for a council website, where is strict and we have to write official, formal and in such a standard. But my blog is my little world, where I won’t get judged for bad grammar, spelling and how a page looks.

I will add all of the gifs I want (you’re welcome) will write in different ways because I can..

However I never ever ever ever EVER expected to have nearly 80,000 views, over 3,000 “followers” of my blog and over 2,500 on social media.

From me to you:

Here’s to the next 5 year’s.

Know who you are and own it.

Hey lovelies, I hope that you are well.

So I completely failed at the 31 day challenge, I know suck but hey tough tits. I think I got into roughly a couple of days in and thought to myself “nah this isn’t for me!”.

I thought I’d try something different to what I do, I thought I’d try something that is similar to other people’s posts. But in the end, I love to just writing from my heart and not planning anything. I am totally not the blogger to plan again, I don’t really plan my day let alone this thing.

Day 8 – do you miss the past version of you?

Well howdy there partners!! I hope you’re doing well? It’s my first day back after 2 weeks off from work, and I’m dreading it but hey that’s life.

Talking about life, it throws you some curveball now and again doesn’t it. Curveballs that really we should all learn from, whether it helps us grow as a person or we can help others learn to grow. Either way, as Ronan Keating says“life is a rollarcoaster just gotta ride it” (click the link and have a singsong).

Day 7 – relaxing and chilling

hello hello hello!

So, the challenge is going well isn’t it(!) Hahahaha!!!! I to be honest have been having quite a busy week, I have visited my University and had a day trip to London. On top of that my whole family came back from their holiday, it’s been pretty busy. With that in mind, I need to relax.

Relaxing is hard sometimes and I am currently on a 2 week break from my work, and I have loved it.

I have quite a busy job and sometimes find it very hard to relax, even my osteopath has said that I need to learn to relax more. I therefore thought I’d put together a list of things I do to relax… hopefully this may help you.
