Okay guy's after I did my poll on Twitter and Facebook, asking you to vote on my next content. The clear winner was this, so lets get started.
I would like to take one second to mention the title and why I feel you need to hear this. The moment came when I was driving to my boyfriend's parents village, me and Cal ended up in a deep discussion which I feel and am so strongly viewed on that I thought "fuck it" (excuse the language but hey, people swear in necessary moments and this is one of them) I need to write about this, share it and get it out there!
What have I got to loose? - in my opinion nothing because this is a general opinion of mine and to be honest I feel like opening up to you all, I also feel this could potentially be relateable, debatable, agreeable and maybe even open up some people's narrow minded views. This is in no way shape or form aimed at anyone in particular, so please don't read this and turn into a fired up dragon.. (if you get me)
Now that's cleared up, let's get into the swing of things. Grab yourself a snack, coffee or anything you feel you might need for that matter because hopefully you're going to stick with me until the very end and once you're there your going to write down exactly how this made you feel, whether that be in the comments section below or on my social media platform that helped you make your way into "That Bridge Girl" because I truly do love to hear your views, feelings and anything you feel you'd like to share with me, because lets face it I have no fear and this is the very reason I am sat here (in bed cuddled up in my duvet while the snow is falling with a cuppa coffee of course) typing away and working hard.
Quick side note: Please don't come at me with any spelling errors or typo's, I'm pretty sure you'll come across a few but I won't pretend to be the perfect speller and never intend to be - I'm only human sorry!
If you have read my other blogs you should be aware by now that I talk of being inspired at the most random times and I'll tell you it really isn't good for me to have been inspired while driving.. because I'm not one of those people that can read or write while traveling -that will always end with me feeling sick! So instead I had to try and keep the conversation flowing to remember what it is I want to share with you. You may or may not have heard bloggers talk about "bloggers block" and I hope to god I never get this because after upping my game with my blog in the past 6 months, I've also been trying to seriously kick butt with my content for you. I find the random moments of inspiration or idea's extremely exciting and I have to write everything down there and then in fear of loosing my streak or memory of ideas! (so while writing this down in my notebook, it's currently 12.30am and I've only just begun.. that's without typing into my phone and finalising anything)
To be honest for everything I've rambled about above those are just just a few of the reasons as to why I decided to create "The Bridge Girl" of course there's plenty more I'd quickly like to throw in here quickly because I haven't spoke of this before:
So those are the reasons as to why I decided to start my blog, but I wouldn't have taken the leap without one day waking up after reading someone's blog the evening before and simply thinking "fuck it, I want it, I'm going to have to put myself out there - I'M READY TO TAKE THE LEAP".
I'm not going to lie to anyone, but for me doing this whole thing was and sometimes still is seriously petrifying because let's face it, you can basically sit down and read about my life, my mums cancer, my relationship, my views, my dreams/goals, you see photograph's of everything, you can see my effort's in the gym, my own story following my migraines/experiences - basically long story short you can read and see everything about me and that's scary.. you could be anyone from a friend of mine, family members, someone I've never met, a secret "hater". (someone I'd hate the thought of reading my blogs - but I know you probably are out there somewhere having a cheeky nose around or a reader of mine)
I guess that's significant and I personally am completely okay with all of that, I've thought this process through many times and I came to realise I have no problem in sharing or publishing the things I decide to write about, because if I did care I wouldn't be doing it - it's that simple.
I have got to the age of 22, I'm so passionate and ready to chase after one of my dreams and no one's going to stop me from doing so. My favourite part is knowing I'm publishing truth and I am doing it from the comfort of my own bed (or my boyfriends) I don't think I've ever wanted something so much! I know I have come such a long way in myself, I mean come on I was the girl in school who was as quiet as a mouse, would never stick up for myself, never let people in and I got taken for a mug by some people, but now I'm ready I'm roaring, I get told I talk too much (probably very true) but the point is, all of that has made me who I am now and I'm absolutely loving life.
I'm not going to take all of the credit in the person I have become because there's a few people out there that have helped or influenced me into who I am.. you've helped me come out of my shell so to speak and many other things. I hope you're reading this and if you are you'll know I'm talking to you. So I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!
Moving on.. let's talk about the "haters" as I like to call them. These are the people who:
Now I'd like to get down and dirty here, to anyone that may or may not be a "hater" but you fit in with the above and to anyone else reading this. There is absolutely nothing you can say to hurt me, I have no fear whatsoever from you reading my blog, you will never stop me because I love what I'm doing. I may not personally inspire you, yourself but I know there are a few people I do inspire. You "haters" do nothing more than make me want to keep going, keep pushing and you fuel my ambition. (I hope you read this, and feel the same towards anyone that may try to put you down, anyone that may bully you, or someone who is any of the above towards you and I hope you learn from this, agree with me and feel exactly what I'm saying here)
If I manage to inspire just one person, leave a good influence or make someone take the leap into doing something they've always wanted. Then I know I am doing what I wanted, that is the biggest achievement for me I love and hope I am building you up, I hope I am opening doors for you. Likewise if just one person reads my blogs and can relate or connect to anything I share, I hope you realise that's my aim. I want to be someone in the world that doesn't just do good for myself, but someone that potentially helps others, this world is becoming a horrible scary place, along with that some people also seem to be changing into horrible scary people but, I want you to realise you supporting or building another up will do nothing but share your strength, help that person and one day they'll also realise they're a good person that this world needs. So please stop for one second, think about how you portray yourself to the world to and the people around you.
I think "You need to hear this" because I believe in not only myself, but you too. Blogging for me is my passion, my talent - so to speak, a way I express myself, something I want people to read, like and follow. Grow with me because I know from here I can only improve, and become better, stronger. I'd like to mention something I wrote the other day over on my Facebook, something that I feel may have also helped to inspire me with "You need to hear this":
"Since I decided to change my mindset it puts so many things into perspective, I honestly don't care or batter an eyelid at anyone who doesn't like me anymore, it doesn't phase me if you do or don't like me, if you talk about me, form your own opinion that's okay. I know exactly who I am, what it is I want, I'll continue to work towards my goal/dream and if I have to do it alone that's fine. I'm me, no one can take me down, I'm making changes and choices that I know will help me. I haven't got to please anyone, that's not why I do what I do, as long as I am happy with myself that's all I believe I need. Likewise I don't care if you choose not to read my blogs because you don't like who I am, I'm not here to be liked by everyone. Those who do choose to read it, read it because they want to and those are the people who matter to me. Life is made up of choices you make and I choose to focus on positive energy, happiness and building/supporting those around me".
The notebook I write my blogs in as my first draft, is my favourite notebook ever - fun fact I'm addicted to buying and looking at notebooks, I have to have a look and see what shops have what notebooks, so if you ever for any reason want to buy me something I'm very easily pleased and a notebook is the way to my heart. Anyway the notebook I'm currently using is one filled with quotes every 7 pages. I have ended with a quote I'd like to show you, one I'm pretty damn sure I am realising more and more every day to be true and after you've read this quote I'd like for you to think long and hard about how this quote makes you feel and tell me below!
What inspires you? How did "You need to hear this" make you feel? Did you enjoy this post?
