Becoming invisible on social media

Yes I know shocking!!!! I am coming off every social media site I own for at least six months. I just want a rest from it all, all the drama that society brings. It doesn't do us any good at all!
Instead of picking up your phone to see who said what, spend time with the family, instead of looking at your phone read a book that is gripping. Use the time to do something new everyday, challenge yourself and achieve things you didn't think you could achieve. Dream big!! Look at the world with fresh eyes and not through the opinions of others. These are things that people told me. I never listened but now I do, now I want to make a world for myself, a world that is new, that only exists in the minds eye, a world that doesn't have drama written all over it! I don't want to be controlled by my phone, when I pick it up when I hear it go off every second, I want to control the way I live and not the way society has me live. I AM A CARE FREE GIRL  Don't let your phone s…

Update on what's been happening

Image
Have missed posting here! Can't tell you how busy life has been lately. I have had so many essays to write and so many trips out with friends that I have had no time to sit down and even now I am sitting at lunch blogging. So anyways I hope I will get some time to myself. The HNC is very stressful and would never of thought that I would get this far but I have and I am so pleased. 
Life has certainly taken me on a roller coaster but in a way I am grateful for that as it's made me who I am today. I have bumped into a few obstacles but managed to get through to the other side. As a friend once said to me it's not what has happened that is important it's how you deal with the situation. I definitely agreed with what they said. It showed me that any situation you can get out of but only if your willing to move on and start a fresh.
Got a few things planned for my easter holidays. My best friend is coming up which will be so lovely to see her it's been awhile since we ha…

Whats ahead?

Life seems to have pulled the carpet from under me! But I have definitely found solid ground to stand on :0 There's always going to be ups and downs in our life's but what's important is how we go about dealing with them. For me I have had to learn that just giving up wont be the solution to the problem but carrying on and accepting what the trouble is and just finding a copying mechanism.


Which for me is writing things down 15 mins every night before I go to sleep so that when I go to sleep I wont be thinking over and over what happened about the day and that I can leave it behind on a piece of paper. There are so many copying mechanisms out there its just finding the right ones for you.  2017 has definitely taught me a lot. Especially as  people come and people go from your life, its a matter of fact really. Not everyone will always be there but the important ones always stay. I have found some new friends this year which has been a highlight to find people with the same…

Lots and lots and lots of news

Wow it has been ages since I have last blogged on here! Have definitley missed writing my thoughts and things i have gotten up to. Blogging for me is one those times where you can just take yourself away and write about the good things. Anyways theres been a lot of things happen! Don't know if you all know but I have started my HNC childhood practice which is going brilliant although at times it can be stressful but during those times shows how much you can actually accomplish. Still doing my driving lessons and so close to being independent and getting my own car which i am so excited about. Just love the thought of going on a road trip and singing all the old tunes 😁. Still going to slimming world and absolutely love it! The support you get from them all is incredible and wouldn't miss it for the world, I am feeling really good in myself although I am going to try and lose another stone and a bit but that won't take me too long! So motivated to get back on track once an…

Time has flown by

Its been a while since I have posted anything on my blog. I have been so incredibly busy that I havent had the time to sit down and write. So time for a catch up! So a while back I was talking about how I couldnt find a job and was looking all over for one,anyhow my mums friend found me a job at a private fishing hotel near Ullapool. Its a fantastic hotel but is very demanding. As it is quite a distance from where I live and because I do morning and night shifts I have my own room at the hotel. I have been working there over two months ago, which has seemed to go so quickly. Such a lovely atmosphere at work there but it does have its challenges like many jobs I am sure have but you just keep doing your best everyday.
So as I have split shifts I find myself walking a lot and I found this gorgeous walk by the river behind the hotel and it leads to the falls.


I love spending these quiet times sitting on a rock looking over the water and enjoying the peace and quiet that surrounds me, apa…

Being content with any situation

At the moment I am learning a lot about how to be content in life, learning to take each day as it comes and accepting that your life could change any minute. Especially with the news at the moment it's brought home to me how precious your life is and if you don't take every opportunity that comes your way then your letting yourself down and loved ones that are around you as they want to see you strive and to be the best version of you.

I think learning to be content is hard, even if it's been content in yourself or content in Job situations, no matter what there is always going to be something that you are not happy with and you have the power to change that.

One of the big things for me that I am finding so hard to be content with is my weight, ok so I am only a size 12 but for me I am not comfortable in my body i have struggled with my weight since high school with situations going on around me felt like my life was turned upside down and eating was a comfort to me. But…

18 and responsibilities!

Oh dear! didn't think  my 18th was gonna come this fast and wasnt really prepared, but who ever is. I have had to make an action plan of what I am wanting to do after this year, don't get me wrong I am going to continue to study to be an early years practitioner but I also want to find a job. I have been emailing round everyone to see if they have any vacancies to do an apprenticeship and also finding jobs around the local area for the summer, it's difficult because you really cant be picky when it comes to job hunting, you just got to go with what's available. I am also finding ways and means to pay for my driving lessons and also trying to find away to fund a car and wondering how possible it is.
I feel like I have put together a jigsaw but can't find the last missing piece and without it I cant go forward a step but stay there until it's found. From being totally dependant on my parents for money to having to find a way to earn money for myself.

Anyway's…
