"Although this post is aimed at everyone of all ages, my hope is to reach the younger generations, to let them read this post and I aim to get you to think long and hard about the choices you make. We've all been teenagers at one point in life, so we all understand the challenges you face from hormones to getting to know yourselves. I personally believe our teenage years help shape the person we become. We've all been through the reckless stage where you think you're invincible and you can do anything and everything."
Today I want to share with you, something that has been in the works for a while. I sit here and say it's been in the works because in all honesty it's been sat within my to-do-list and not moved, you see normally I'd just go ahead as soon as I'm inspired and publish my thoughts there and then. But to me this one's different, it's one that I'd put off in fear of the response I'd get, not because it's something I shouldn't share, with you, because this is damn well important and needs to be said, but it may also hit home with a few people.
"Most of the time while you are working on your "side hustle" in hope of making it and being able to make it your full-time profession you're also aware that it may never happen. But if you love it from day one then that won't be the be all or end all and like me you won't mind because you'll still have your very own little space on the internet."
Right now I'm doing something I've always said I wanted to do, it's nothing big like jumping out of an plane (hell no!) but I'd always walk past people doing the thing I am now and say "I wish I could do that, I bet it's so productive" believe it or not I'd always wanted to sit in a quirky little coffee shop, tucked away in the corner
of a street.
I can't tell you why, but the thought of it sends my over active mind spinning with creative excitement, so here I am on a Tuesday afternoon sat in a cute little coffee shop sipping on my Frappuccino with pen to paper. The Wi-Fi is slightly worse than I imagined, but that's okay because the less distractions the better. There's something so special about sitting here drinking my Frappuccino and letting inspiration flow naturally.
"As embarrassing as those time are now I'm 23 I'd be lying if I didn't say that some of those years where the best of my life, back when N-Dubz were cool, S-Club 7 were probably big and we can't not mention the Jane Norman bags that took over school."
I got thinking the other day about growing up, something we all go through and something that we all experience. Everyone experiences a different childhood and most of us get to an age where we are finally aloud to go to the park alone, just you and your friends; the rule back then would be to return home once the street lights are lit. Usually £2 would be your daily limit so you'd stock up on Fredo's (before they became a pound!) and have a whale of a time on the park.
You see there's some memories of thing's we as kids used to do without a single person blinking an eyelid, try that in 2017 and goodness knows what would happen. It seems the older I become the worse this world becomes, does peace even exist any more? I can no longer walk down certain streets without feeling slightly on edge, let alone the whole smiling at strangers thing that's gone out the window.
I guess danger along with anxiety has become a way of life, we have slowly somehow adapted to the fact we aren't always as safe as we'd like to think; I guess things change ey. Anyway that's not something I wish to focus on here, I think it would be much better to focus on "old times" instead. (sounds fun to me)
"At some point in life you are likely to experience a break up, even if you're young and maybe don't think your deeply in love, you will probably relate to feeling 'the emptiness'. You know the time when you're sat in bed alone after the break up and your head seems to want to replay memories of your lover over and over, resulting in you
I decided to have a little break after publishing
a-daughters-perspective. to be totally honest I was a little blown away from the response this post received, this was a very personal post and slightly different from the others as I focused purely on myself. I wasn't sure on what to expect when I hit publish, it's safe to say my views sky rocketed and messages came flooding in. So just quickly it's only right I thank those of you for reading this post, to those of you who reached out to me and just genuinely for the support from you guys; it honestly blows my mind! I'm so truly grateful to be able to share the things I do on my little internet space, be able to do so without feeling judged badly is incredible and I hope you guy's realise how
much I appreciate you.
