What To Do When The World's Against You

Lately I've been feeling super inspired to write, which is good news for all of you lovelies since I'll be back posting more than once a month! I'm beyond happy that i'm out of my creative block meaning I can finally write again, it took some time but I am backkkkk so you'll have to put up with me for a lot longer! I just want to say thank you so much for all the support you've been giving me on twitter lately, reading through all of your lovely and kind DM's really does make me happy and puts a massive smile on my face and I couldn't ask for better readers than you lovely bunch. Soppy stuff aside, thank you! I've planned out a bunch of posts and I have so many ideas floating around my head I can't help but feel like a new person. Or does that just sound weird? Hah, oh well.

I'm sure we all know the feeling of when you just can't help but think the world and everyone in it is completely against you, it's a natural human thought we will all have a few times in our lives. However some people will feel it a lot more than others and it can really get you down if you let it take over your mindset too much which is a straight up cause for trouble. I mean I know perfectly well that the world isn't against me and it's all just in my imagination, but when everything you could possibly think of is going wrong it can definitely get you down and make you feel like everything isn't worth it, and right now I know this feeling too well. I don't want to feel like I do, no one does, so today I thought I'd share a few ways to help you out when you're feeling like this, but remember that you are not alone!

Looking To The Future

One of my worst habits happens to be how much I cling to the past, now I know it's something everyone does but my problem is I let it affect me and my day to day life way more than your average person. I won't go too in depth (because let's be honest, no one wants my life story), but it's such a dangerous thing to do. Okay yes, the past has happened and some of it sucks, but holding onto it for dear life is not going to get you anywhere. Things change, people change, hell even you change! I'm a firm believe of 'everything happens for a reason' and 'the right time' (but they are two completely different posts for a very different day i'm afraid) and I really need to learn to stop stressing over the past. Life happens, shit happens, get over it. Living in the present and looking towards the future rather than having your eyes set back are so so important and I really can't stress it enough.

Loneliness can come in a ton of different ways and I just want to start off by clarifying that I think there's a big difference between being alone and loneliness, as human beings we need time to be alone, it's good for our mental health, however when that turns into feeling actually alone and isolated that it becomes a problem. One thing that my readers seem to love is when i'm open, when I write about how I feel because a lot of you seem to relate and that seems to be what's growing my blog. It's hard for me to be open because i'm quite a closed person, I don't like letting things out in the open especially to people I know, which is why using this blog as a form of escape has become a regular thing, and the fact you guys love it just makes it all the better. 

Now i've always liked being on my own, like most bloggers and internet people I'm an introvert. Until recently I found it extremely impossible to be social, especially for long periods of time but now I can manage it, to a certain extent that is. I've come a long way from the person I used to be a few months ago, but in becoming more social the loneliness has somehow creeped in unnoticed.

Small Goals For July

Okay I know this post is being uploaded a tad late but i've been so busy lately so I apologise! I have so much going on right now it's kinda crazy, but don't worry I'll still be regularly posting on here, you all have nothing to worry about! Lately I've been both the happiest i've ever been but also the saddest i've ever been, which is hands down one of THE most confusing thing's ever and makes 0 sense, but I'm just trying to roll with it. If you read my June goals post (which you can find HERE) you'll be happy to hear that I have completed 3 of the 4 goals!!  I hit 1,000 bloglovin followers a few days after the end of the month, so thank you all so so much for that, it means an awful lot and i'm so happy with where this blog is heading at the moment! I've kept up the regular posting and I've also organised my bookshelf, so my productivity levels are feeling greaaatttt right now.

The Power Of Social Media

Our generation are social media addicts. As soon as we wake up the first thing we do is check twitter or Instagram or even facebook. We get labelled unsociable and social media is portrayed as this big bad wolf that has a massive hold on us, but is that really the truth? We get told we're wasting our time and to get off our phones, but is it really that bad for us? I ran a poll on twitter asking what peoples thoughts were, and got a ton of DM's with everyone's opinions on the topic and to be quite frank it was rather interesting. Every single person had something different to say about it, but the majority agreed that our social media addict generation has both it's ups and downs.

4 Tips To Revamp Your Blog

Even I get bored of my blog every now and then, sometimes a change is majorly needed even if it is just a slight revamp. Sometimes you want to go all out and completely refresh everything, but if that isn't that case I thought I'd share 4 tips to just revamp and spruce up your blog. Think of it as a little spring clean if you want, I can guarantee you'll feel a lot better after doing some of these. Also don't ask me why I didn't do 5, I know that probably would have made more sense but hey ho I'm a fan of even numbers, even the volume has to be even around me. (Yes I'm one of THOSE people)
