Does anyone else really enjoy looking at other peoples photography online? 

I can spend/waste, (whichever way you like to look at it) so much time flicking through google images and places like tumblr just admiring photos. I would like to share some of mine once i get a few followers but for now i'm going to post some of the pictures that caught my eye and I saved on my computer. I don't remember where I found half of these as i've collected them for so long but that doesn't mean I admire the photographers any less.

I hope if anyone does come across one of their photos on my blog they will let me know and I will be happy to state the source of the rightful owner or take it down if requested.

Need a therapist? call a friend

One thing I've learned in the past year is all those cheesy phrases about how 'a problem shared is a problem halved' are actually not too far off the beat. Now I'm not saying that every problem in life or people suffering from depression etc can be fixed with this advise but for the girly first world problems that we all tend to suffer with it's the best cure. 

I used to be a bottler. Somebody who was too proud to tell friends about relationship problems, family problems, money problems and even image insecurities. I used to worry that i'd be judged or seen as weak for venting about these 'silly' things. How wrong i was!!!

The best thing you can have in life is a good friend who listens and who cares. I am no ms popular but I do have a handful of really great people that have always been there for me and I learned a valuable lesson about  how opening up to them and letting them help you can make you feel stronger. 

You don't need to burden people. At the end of the day you do need to be the one to tackle your own problems but always talk to a friend. Ask for advise even if you don't always like it or take it another opinion is worthwhile. If i'm worrying and stressed about something sometimes just ranting to a good friend about it can make me feel afterwards like it's not the big deal I thought it was and takes a huge weight off my shoulders. Boys and jobs come and go and life changes but friends are the ones that you will always need to turn to. Even if you don't have a crazy social life or if you're not the most popular girl in town, count your blessings if you have at least one that's there for you! It's a great blessing to have!

What's your opinion on sharing your problems with friends?

January & Journaling

So I decided quite recently to start keeping written journals along with this blog. Why I love the idea is a creative thought or idea can happen at any moment in any place. I have noticed also that most of the bloggers that I admire and follow do this and swear by it so it's part of my list of new things to do. I got this little gem and stared writing today. 

Don't get me wrong, it's not going to be material worth publishing and sitting with it in my favorite coffee shop today and basically ended up doodling for about 30 mins but I'm sure i'll get into it in time. I have read that many people keep a few for different ideas and topics but I'm going to stick with the one for now. Having several different notebooks full of personal material floating around in my many handbags seems like too much of a commitment and a bit risky to me at the moment ;) 

I did make my bucket list today to help me figure out where I am going with life. I'll post it a soon. 

Anyway, I have read a lot of things about the 'January blues' these days. I have to say, I love January! It's one of my favourite months. The weather is crisp and people get all excited making new plans and resolutions (even if we don't always stick to them). It feels like a fresh start, so happy new year! :) x

New direction.

I've always been told about the power of keeping a journal. Writing down all your thoughts and ideas can be therapeutic and empowering. So this is my journal and these are my thoughts.....

Right now I'm at a crossroads in life. I feel like I no longer belong where I am and it's time for a change. I've always hated change. It's scary and risky but maybe at some stage everyone gets to a point where it becomes inevitable.... I'm going to make a bucket list tonight and take the first step. 

my hopes for this blog is that I will meet people like me. At the moment i'm choosing to remain anonymous. I'm not sure who I am right now or what i'm doing so I'm not sure what to share right now but I hope this space will change that. I do have one rule in life though that won't change and that's to always.....

And so it begins ;)
