Firstly guys I just want to say that I’m so sorry that I haven’t been around much lately but like I’ve said on various social media, I’ve had major writers block and that teamed with a lot of things going on has meant I haven’t been in the right frame of mind to blog.
Recently I’ve been over thinking a lot so I thought what better time to do a post about things I wish I could tell my younger self, obviously I would be here all day if I wrote down everything I wish I could say so I thought I’d keep it short and just do the 5 that I think are the most important.
Don’t be gullible – Not everyone out there is as genuine as they may seem and soon you will start to realise that certain people will tell you anything they have to, if it means that they will get what they want. I’m not saying they there aren’t genuine and honest people out there but please just remember to not believe and trust everything you are told.
Be proud of who you are – I know like every young girl you have dreams of being a perfect supermodel with a size 6 waist and looks to die for but I can guarantee too you that nobody is as perfect as they may seem and you are imperfections are what make you unique and special. Don’t waste the next few years of your life wanting to be someone else you are beautiful..be proud of yourself!
Don’t dwell on the past – Certain things will happen during your life that you will wish you could change or do differently but one thing I’ve learnt is that yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn’t promised, No matter what you can’t change your past and by living in the past you are doing nothing but robbing yourself of future happiness. By the time you get too the age I am now you will realise that all the trivial idiots from the past and the things that happened have no significance on your future.
Bad times won’t last forever – I know during these crappy times you will feel like nothing will ever get better for you but I’m so happy to be able to promise you that they definitely will, there will become a time in your life when you will be so glad you stuck with it and overcome the bad days because great things lay ahead.
Don’t chase people – This one is something I know you would laugh at me for because I know that you don’t believe you do this but please don’t ever feel the need to chase people to keep them in your life, If you mean as much to these people as they say you do then they won’t need chasing because they will be right there by your side wanting to be apart of your life.
So if you had the chance to go back in time and talk too your younger self what would you say guys?
I thought after my recent post ‘A mixture of nerves, excitement & anticipation’ and all the lovely comments I got regarding my first public speech, it’s only fair I write a follow up post to let you all know how it went.
I’m so pleased to be able to say it went so well!, in fact it went far better than I imagined! When I arrived at Daisy the hall was a lot fuller than I had anticipated, which only increased my nerves but after speaking to some old school friends who attend the club on a regular basis and the lovely Dave KellyKelly, my nerves began to subsaide.
Although hearing claps and cheers as Dave introduced me was such a lovely experience as soon as Dave handed me the mic I began to feel a huge lump enter my throat and my voice began to shake but I knew that everything I wanted to say was genuine and heartfelt so I just dived right in and started speaking.
By the end of my speech, which was only about 10 minutes long, all of my anxiety seemed to have just floated away and my whole body just filled with happiness and pride! I know to a lot of people doing a small talk in front of maybe 15 – 20 people may not seem like much but for the women who used to giggle uncontrollably every time I was asked to speak in public, its a massive deal and if I’m truly honest I couldn’t feel prouder of myself! I feel I can now say I’m well and truly on my way too my dream of becoming a motivational speaker! 😁
So I just want to finish this post off by saying a great big THANK YOU too you all for such overwhelming and incredible support, I’m blessed to have such lovely followers!! 😘
