Let's Talk: "Who You Are".

Saturday, 19 October 2013


Life is a crazy thing. 

As pro self love and pro positivity I am, it's bloody hard sometimes. Not everything is rainbows, unicorns and fashion blogging. Aside from the shiny perfect bubble that blogging seems to be, there are people, you and I with very real lives. Some of us are in education, some of us work, some of us are old, some of us are young... You get the point. Life, as wonderful as it is, can sometimes get on top of us and believe me I have most definitely had to face the storm before seeing the proverbial light in life. I went through the whole self deprecatory period of "Who am I? What am I doing? What am I worth?"

We worry and fret and push and pull ourselves till we're nothing more than a tired shell of our former selves, as i've said before and will continue saying, Self Love is paramount. Take everything day by day, keep working with yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses and never ever against! Find what you love doing in life and do it well! You are wonderful and fearfully made!

I'm currently finding my final year at university difficult in the sense that I need to have faith in myself to be able to present my projects in crits, i'm terrified, but i'm working on it. Little things like rehearsing presentations to myself in my bedroom till i sound confident enough to sell a concept to a potential client, forcing myself to be more confident in social situations and just allowing myself to breathe! I've found that writing out a list of all the wonderful things life has to offer and all my short term and long term goals really helps in a "This too shall pass" way.

I've noticed a lot of people are going through transitioning phases in life right now so i thought this might help, sometimes it's nice to spread some positivity and love!

  6. Amazing post. I admit I sometimes struggle with the self love bit. I find it hard to accept myself the way I am and sometimes I wonder who I am but gradually I'm learning more about myself and I'm becoming more comfortable being me. xx

  7. I needed to read something like this so badly, Sade, and I didn't even realise it. What a wise lady you are - to me you have always looked strong and determined and I think that kind of attitude is totally unstoppable if you combine it with positivity.

    I wont wish you luck for your endeavors because luck makes no difference - instead I'll wish you confidence and even more inner strength. You can do anything. Your self love is encouraging my self love, and love of you!

  9. Life is not all rainbows, and unicorns, I agree. This post has so much truth in it. It's important to see all the good you have in your life already - something we all should remember and make note of. I wish all the luck with your final year. And be confident! I always admired how your blog as grown and everything you have achieved is thoroughly deserved. I'm just on a little high that you visited my blog and left a comment so thank you. x

  11. Such an amazing post. I felt exactly the same in my final year. the fret of not passing, knowing that stepping out in to the real world and having to find a REAL job wasn't that far away and most importantly having to prove yourself for a grade... which may i add really doesn't mean anything!

    Good luck with everything and keep your head up x

  12. You know when you've been in a crappy mood all day and need something to pick you up? This was definitely it so thank you. I seem to find myself questioning myself and my abilities far too often but I'm slowly learning to try and turn those negative thoughts into motivation to get better at whatever it is I'm stressing about. Good luck with final year and your presentations!!
