For years I wanted to have my own blog (I created one when I was at university but I quickly deleted it again). I guess I was scared that people would judge me or make fun of me.
But why do we worry so much about what other people think of us?!
Since being with Shaun, he’s really helped me realise that other people probably don’t care what you’re doing and honestly it’s none of their business anyway. When I first met Shaun, I was scared he would judge me because I’m a fussy eater and I don’t drink alcohol … But he didn’t care. I still remember him saying to me ‘I love you for everything that you are, and if that means you’re fussy with your food and don’t drink then I love that too’ (Top Boyfriend points right there!)
When I told Shaun I wanted to start my own blog he told me to go for it and do what makes me happy. So I did and I’m honestly so happy right now!
I LOVE being creative, I love designing hand made cards. It’s what I enjoy and I’ve enjoyed it since I was a child. I stopped making cards when I was about 14 because it didn’t seem like a ‘cool’ thing to do. But last year I decided I wanted to start making cards again – I’ve even been selling them to friends and family and it’s such an incredible feeling when someone tells you how great something is that you’ve made.
Now that I’ve actually starting doing things that I enjoy I feel so happy…. When I’m sat in work with the boring drag of a 9-5 job, I sit and think about what I can design when I get home, or what I want to write about next. I’ve honestly felt like a different person over the last couple of months. I’m full of ideas and creativity and it’s because I’m doing what I love.
I guess all I’m trying to say is do what you love – If people don’t like it then screw them! You don’t need people in your life who are negative and bring you down.
Be yourself and be proud of that!
‘See ya real soon!
