Hi everybody, Shreya here. I hope your week has been lovely so far:) I woke up to the most beautiful autumn weather and I thought…aren’t seasons just amazing? It has been so breezy and rainy the last couple of days which has made me extremely happy with it being my favourite kind of weather. I could see the heavy rain rattle on my window in a calming motion that just put me to complete ease. It’s days like this that spend writing all kinds of random things and just generally pausing and thinking about my life and the events that have occurred in the past couple of days, weeks or even months. I like to just take some time to think about my actions every once in a while and see how I’m doing educationally, emotionally and physically. I would love to know if any of you do the same, leave a comment!
So I was thinking about all the changes I’ve had in the past couple of months and I feel like there have been some ups and downs. I’ve become a lot more independent (I feel) and I’ve kind of taken my responsibilities a little more seriously than I had before. It’s not that I wasn’t organised or trustworthy before this but I had so many people like my mum and dad to do things for me. I’ve decided to kind of rely on them a little less:)
I’ve always thought about blogging since I was very little but I haven’t got around to it until the past few months which is extremely exciting…I’ve learnt so much from the whole blogging community and I’m so thankful for this experience. Although, even though I created a blog because I constantly have so much to say, it was also because I wanted to share my thoughts with people who won’t judge me for thinking them because well, they won’t personally know me. The more I thought about this, I got more and more worried about “What if someone I actually know finds out I have this blog? Will they make fun of me?”. I constantly felt worried that it won’t be as anonymous as it is anymore.
But then one day, I don’t know what happened but something inside me kind of clicked. I wasn’t worried about any of that anymore and couldn’t care less what people thought about me having a blog. It was a decision I made and I wouldn’t let anybody stop me from doing this. I feel like we lose sight of this a lot these days with media changing our views of the word ‘unique’. Sometimes I feel like the word ‘unique’ just means weird and different instead of something like ‘one of a kind’.
So don’t let people who’s opinions don’t matter help you make your decisions. Listen to your family and friends who care about you and support you through the decisions you make. Don’t listen to the people who judge you for being different because haters gonna hate! So just shake it off and carry on being fabulous! Don’t let the choices you make define you as a person. You should define yourself with the words you choose to define yourself with. Just remember to always be the best person you can be, for you and the ones you love.
I hope you don’t mind my little rant right there! It’s good to clear your head sometimes. Should I posts things like this more often? Let me know in the comments! Happy Wednesday…we are halfway to Saturday, what a great reason to celebrate:)
