Yeah…I’m Back!

Hey Guys,

It’s been a while since I have said that, I know! I’m not even sure if I will be of interest to anyone now after being absent for what feels like forever. I just needed time away from this blog, to gather my thoughts, gain that passion once again and find myself.

It’s not that I was regressing because I wasn’t, but rather I felt stuck for a while and this felt forced, which I never wanted.

But here I am. I am back. Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. I just had this sense that I should write to you all like the old days. I think it all began yesterday. I was talking to someone where I work and it reminded me why I enjoyed writing in the first place and it really made me realise…I truly miss it.

What a revelation! And just like that, the spark seems to have returned.

I will be changing theย name of this blog as that isn’t the person I am anymore and I refuse to feel that way. I am moving forward and can’t wait to share this stage of my journey with you all.

Finally, just like I used to say…

See you all soon (and I do mean soon),

Oh How Life Changes!

Hey Guys,

We are now coming towards the middle of March and the year is well underway already, but it’s not too late to say that I believe this year is going to be a great one for me in terms of personal growth and that is not me trying to brag, but letting you know that things can change for the better.

Just let me explain and you will see.

First of all, I have been in my job now for 7 months. That has really flown by, hasn’t it?

In fact, it’s not only a job, it’s something I truly love and am actually quite good at.

I remember letting you all in on my journey to getting the position, to telling you about my first month update and now it has been over half a year.

In that time I have learned so much, and have really expanded my skills, opening myself up to new opportunities along the way.

It’s definitely true what they say, that when the real world hits you, it does truly hit you like a tonne of bricks and you know what? You don’t always realise to begin with. But the thing is, it isn’t a negative thing, but rather the complete opposite, it is exactly what should happen and I think I am really beginning to grasp that now.

Let’s look back a few years ago, to the girl you first came to know. She was lost, unsure of herself, and not happy with where her life was heading.

Jump forward a few years, and that same girl is working full time, volunteering and getting involved with several projects with Church and Charitable groups as well as still managing to blog on the side. I have really shocked myself.

It’s as though my life has turned a full 180 degrees and I am on the path I am supposed to be on, or at least that is how it feels right now.

There is absolutely no telling where I am going to end up in my life in a year, 2 years or even 10 years time, but what is for sure, is that I am more prepared for any changes or unexpected moments which may come my way.

I am excited for the next chapter in my life. There are some great life challenges on the way which I can’t wait to face. Bring it on because for once in my life, I feel ready!

To any of you that are worried right now, feeling lost or not sure what is next for you, just remember things can change. Nothing bad lasts forever, no matter how it seems now. It takes a little hard work but you will reap the benefits soon enough! Surround yourselves with positive people and build yourself up. Bit by bit, a difference will be seen.

Bit corny, but totally true.

See you soon,

Fun Interview With Anna Regina from Diversion3000

DON'T SUFFER IN SILENCE(2)

Hey Guys,

Remember that time when I told you about this cool idea about blogger interviews? Yeah me neither! It was really that long ago.I have finally figured everything out, and got past some barriers which were in my way, and now I am here, and completely ready to give you the first of hopefully many interviews. Are you ready? Good!

The first interviewee is a friend of mine, and the co creator of a little group we like to call Team Awesome, it’s Anna Regina from Diversion 3000 (I sound like I am an announcer in a Boxing match. ‘And in the blue corner..’).

The Interview:

I feel like this will be a good place to start, in the form of a tweet, explain to everyone here what your blog is actually about.

My blog’s about my opinion ’bout stuff, reasons why I like stuff, experiences, photography, funny things, interviews…Was it too long? Did I explain it well? I f you want me to put another answer, you can just ask me!!!

No it was fine! In fact great! How did you come up with your blog name, because it is quite weird and unique, but in a good way.

The blog’s name is actually in Spanish. My blog was entirely in spanish at first, I changed it cause blogs get more views if they’re in English. The word “diversiรณn” is a spanish word that (if you study spanish may know) means “fun”, and the “3000” was simply because I thought it sounded better with a number.

Now that was long, HAHA!!

Well I guess that makes sense.ย 

Once you had come up with this name, did you have a clear indication of where you wanted this blog to take you, or what you wanted to do with it?

That’s a good question, I think I just wanted to amuse other people for at least 5 minutes. But I just didn’t think I would get more than 20 followers!!

Obviously you were going to get more than 20 followers! Come on!

Yeah but I didn’t know that. Haha!!

Now I come to think of it, I thought the same. When it comes to actually writing your posts, what would be your usual process to coming up with the awesome ideas that you do?

I just sit at my desk, make a list of ideas (something like a brainstorming) for posts and just choose the ones I like. And when I don’t have inspiration, I just listen to music, it really works!!!

Ok! That’s actually really awesome! If you had to choose one blogger who is clearly your spirit animal, and you are mostly inspired by, who would that be, and why?

Does it count if I say it’s you??

What genuinely? Me?

Of course, you doubt it??

I just can’t believe you would pick me! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ok but why would you say me?

Because you’re very nice, I love your blog and I have fun with you!!! You even recommended me Goodreads (something which is so hard for me to understand) and that’s why!!!

Aww Clearly a girl of good blogging taste haha! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just kidding ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh this question is quite a good one, how do you manage to juggle blogging with your school work? Any tips for that?

I avoid dealing with that, that’s why I only post on weekends. But if you ever post in the middle of the week, just remember school ALWAYS goes first: just do your homework, study and then you can blog as much time as you want!!!

Oh right! I always found it difficult to juggle the two, so I always felt pressure! Anyway, as the creators of Team Awesome, we will need to recruit others to join us. Who do you suppose we should invite to join this great team?

Sure!!! EVERYONE is welcome!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

You hear that, you all can join our team!

Finally, I would like to ask you to describe your followers in just 3 words. It’s a difficult one!

Totally!! I would say: cheerful, funny and amazing!!!

YES! Woo! Thank you for joining me, and letting me interview you! I will leave your social links below so people can find you ๐Ÿ™‚

You should definitely check her out, because quite soon we are set to do a collaboration on her blog as well, so look out for that!

Ever Feel Like You Are Not Enough?

About Me(3)

Hey Guys,

I have seen a lot of people recently talk about self image and being able to love yourself, and that’s why I have decided to write about this, because I really struggle with that.

For the last few weeks, months, probably even years, I have felt as though I am not as good as anyone else in any way. People tell me I have a lot going on for myself, but for some reason I just can’t accept it as the truth. Others just tell me just to get over it, but I don’t think they get how much I am hurting inside.

It’s got to the point where I have become obsessed with making myself look as good as I can before I leave, because over the years people picked out every little flaw I had, and it made me scared of it happening all over again. So now, I do anything I can to stop it before it does happen. It wasn’t just my appearance, but the way in which I acted, and who I was. Everything I was, was wrong to them, and at any chance they had, they tried to alter that part of me.

The emotional distress ruined me!

I went from having total confidence in myself, to not being able to leave without being frightened of what others might think, or if I would see these people again. This was partly where my anxiety came from, and why I find it difficult to leave my house at all.

Over the years I became much worse, and have even reached the point where all I can say to myself is, ‘I hate myself’ or ‘why am I like this’. I have realised, although I am not with these people anymore, I am continuing what they did to me, by bringing myself down. Maybe that’s what they wanted. I don’t know!

But what I do know is, I can’t keep living this way, so I am going to do whatever I can to change my views on myself, and beat those who beat me down!

Thank you guys for all of the support you have given me, you are the ones that keep me going, along with my parents and friends, and constantly help me with your great comments!
