Breaking your comfort zone

26 November 2014

Hello! I'm back! After a few months I've decided to return to my blog and start posting again, and I've decided to bring my first post back as something a bit different.

The other day, I realised while thinking about why I actually stopped my blog, that there was a pretty clear reason. Once I'd stepped away and actually thought for a while, I realised. The reason was I wasn't posting what I wanted to. By that I don't mean to say every post I've ever written has had a subsequent lack of enthusiasm on my part, but at times there were things I wanted to write about but didn't. Why? Because I was scared of what people would think? Because I was scared no one would care? Because I was scared my opinion didn't matter? All of these things. But now I realise. It doesn't matter what other people think or if anyone is even reading your posts. All that matters is that what you're doing is making you happy, because really, how can you expect to make a good job of something if you're not 110% into it?

This time a year ago I had only just started this blog, and that was a big deal for me. I'd never done anything like it before and it involved me breaking out of my comfort zone to do so. To say I was naive when I started blogging is an understatement. I expected that after my first post I would have thousands of views and hundreds of followers. That didn't happen, and it still doesn't. The truth is though, it does it really matter? When you get past the glorified image you can set of yourself online does it really matter who is reading or how many people are reading?

I'll be the first to admit I'm not the greatest writer nor do I ever try to say that I am. I dont always have the best content or best photos but when you get down to it surely it's more about the meaning then how it's conveyed. Sure a pretty post is nice, but without depth beauty is just decoration.

My point of this post? It shouldn't matter what other people think of you. I've spent way too much time putting others before myself and just doing what people expected me to do because that's the norm. I should be able to post what I want on my blog without thinking twice about it, because it's my little place on the internet and really it shouldn't matter whether other people agree or not. It's good to be different. I should be able to post about what's bothering me in my life as well as beauty posts. So this leads me nicely onto the point of change. This blog isn't just going to be dedicated to beauty anymore. It's also going to contain a lot more lifestyle as well (maybe even some photography posts because I love photography)

What does this have to do with breaking out of your comfort zone? Everything. A week ago let alone a year ago I wouldn't of even dared to post this because not only do people I know in real life read this blog, people from all over the world can too. But that's what I love about it. I want to share everything on my blog, even if I'm worried other people won't like it, I'm going to post it, because I want to, and I hope you respect that. After all, life is too short.


Well...what a post to come back to 'ey? I know this was a bit different to what you were expecting but I hope you guys will still enjoy reading my blog from now on even if my posts are a little different to what you'd expect.
