Being Single.

Holla! Happy NatsChatsTuesday Peeps! Hope the last two weeks have treated you well. I’m in an oddly good mood right now and so I though I would touch on fairly sensitive subject. This topic either boosts my confidence and makes me feel like a cool, crazy, independent woman who “don’t belong to no city, don’t belong to no man” and other times i’m crying because i’ll be forever alone and no one wants me. There is literally no in between. But why I’m still in the first category I though Id reach out to my fellow Pringles and show you it ain’t all bad. Yes, i’m going to be talking about Being Single.

I know all those empowering quotes you find on pinterest mostly just wanna make you throw up so my first rule is: DONT RELY ON WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY TO CHEER YOURSELF UP! This applys to all aspects of self confidence.

The next thing is so, so important. I imagine whilst scrolling through Instagram you’ve seen the phrase “whats a queen without her king”. the thing I think all of you need to realise is that a queen without a king is still a queen. In modern times a woman can rule the world without anyone “by her side”. She’ll be doing the same amount of work without any help from a man (or woman). So if you are single you’re just proving to the world that you dont need anyone, and can live perfectly well on your own (btw thats what your are doing right now – if your reading this you are living).

Now the question lots of people will be wanting to avoid once you realise the single life isnt actually bad atall is when people ask “why are you single?”. When people say this just laugh or walk away. You dont ask them why their in a relationship so they must be making some joke that wasnt as funny as they thought. One of my favourite quotes is:

Because its so much better to live your life solo, than settle down!

And my favourite point to share with you, is that the single life lets you spend time with the most amazing, gorgeous person in the round, yourself. This person should be your number one priority as your stuck with them for all eternity. So please my peeps love yourself as much as i do, you are so worth everything you want, and if it dosent work out, it clearly wasn’t worth you! I LOVE YOU!XX

Blogmas Day 23: Memory Log Tip

Omg it’s Christmas Eve Eve already! How? It seems like only the other day we started Blogmas and now we’re nearly at the end. You know what, even though I did find it annoying having to come up with a new idea to blog about each day and having to actually get off my lazy ass to write something, I think I am actually going to miss you. I know it’ll only be a few days before I start blogging again (most probably in the new year) but just think that’s NEXT YEAR!!!

Anyway for today’s blog post I wanted to give you a little tip which will help to make your life seem that little bit better. This is a great idea for when your feeling down or hopeless as every time I read mine it completely boosts my mood (which can seem like an impossibility at times). It’s also incredibly simple as all it requires is a pen and paper (or ya know the notepad of your phone).

I call it my “moments to remember” page but you can come up with a much more personal or creative name if you see fit. Basically all you do is bulletpoint little moments that made you smile. This could be anything from seeing an act of kindness to experiencing a favourite activity. As some of you may still be a bit confused I have listed some of mine below, I don’t have many but that’s fine as the list will grow as you get through life which is what makes it so magical:

  •  How excited the male Stuard was when you got off the plane in Hollywood (2015) and he said “that’s where he (Tom Hiddleston) sat” – October 26th 2015
  •  My A Level psychology teacher asking to see my dinosaur socks on Breast Cancer Awareness Day (we had to dress pink), I talked about wearing them the day before, so I had to take my boot off in the middle of a lesson – October 21st 2016
  • Putting my stocking on Christmas Eve eve 2016 and checking inside (for some reason?!?) and finding a “simple pleasures” lip balm in there – December 23rd 2016

For those of you able to read dates you will discover that, that last one was made just today about 30 mins ago which is what inspired this post. These moments may not mean anything to you and you may be wondering what makes them so special. But that doesn’t matter. In your list you are going to be the only person reading them. This is fantastic as it shows that you alone have control over your mood and your life which may just give you enough confidence to accomplish what you need to that day.

I hope this little tip in some way helps you. And if it does LET ME KNOW. You know how much I love hearing your views (no matter how mad you may think they are).

Merry Blogmas!
