As a teenager I didn’t have an easy time at school. Don’t get me wrong some parts where great and others not so much. It’s the time of year when I would have left school for what feels like a lifetime ago. I was quite insecure about myself back then, and it got me thinking about how much I’ve changed and become way more confident.
Like most material things in life they come and go through our lives. Some things stay with us forever, reminding us of childhood memories or important moments in our lives. Some are only there until they are broken or no longer serve their purpose. And other objects fall into a category where they have memories attached to them, like little balloons following them where ever they go, yet are too difficult to let go of even if they’re hardly used.
They say you should do something that scares you everyday. Which is something I definitely don’t do. I fall into a routine of making plans for tomorrow and not today. Leaving things to be done for another time. Sometimes it can’t be helped, things have to be saved for another day. But there are certain things that can be done.
Hi everyone! I hope you are all okay! As we are now 3 months into 2017, cue cliche saying of I can’t believe 3 months of 2017 has already gone! Seriously where is the time going!? But for real though how does it go by so quickly? I thought I would do a 3 month update of how my goals are going.
Last Sunday here in England it was Mothers Day, and the weather was absolutely gorgeous! For Mothers Day this year we went to Bourton-on-the-Water. The last time I went was ages ago and I couldn’t really remember it other than a few details.
Recently I’ve really been feeling the urge to write my thoughts down and I wasn’t really sure where my thoughts were leading. So here’s where they ended up. In the past few years anxiety has become more prominent in my every day life. In my younger teenage years I think I definitely suffered constantly from anxiety without really knowing it was anxiety. Pressure to do well in school, pressure to know what to do with my life, pressure to be someone I wasn’t. And in my adult life I feel similar pressures.
Hi everyone and happy Friday! This is my 100th blog post here on Amethyst Rose Beauty, which is pretty crazy because it doesn’t feel like I’ve done 100 of them! I absolutely love blogging and I’m excited to see where the journey continues to take me! My blogging schedule has been off for the past few weeks as I’ve been pretty busy offline. Next week should be the week it starts getting back to normal!
Although we are now 8 days into the new year and I have written up goals I want to achieve in the next 357 days. I was on the fence on whether it was too late to write this post, but it’s better late than never. 2016 for me was a really crazy year, I know a lot of people have been saying how bad it has been for them and on some things I can agree. I’ve had some pretty tough things go on in my life last year that I never envisioned at the beginning of 2016.
One thing my Dad and I love to do every year is make ginger bread! In previous years we have made our own ginger bread and decorated them. Every year we always say that we’ll make a ginger bread house and previously it has never come to fruition. So this year we bought a kit in November so we wouldn’t forget!
