Destination unknown: Why it’s OK to have no idea where you’re going…

Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. We’ve all got to that point in our lives where we question everything. Where we question what we’re doing, where it’s all heading and just get stuck – completely forgetting our destination in life. It happens to the best of us.

But it’s okay! It’s alright because we all have it. I think it’s part of growing up, part of discovering where you’re destined to be and part of creating our own path towards the life you are supposed to live.

I am a firm believer of everything happens for a reason so all of the events that unfold throughout our lives are just carving the way for a better and brighter future: we are all allowed to be happy, and I believe that the universe wants that for us, we just have to be brave enough to reach out and take it.

Sometimes, all it takes is just a little glimpse of rock bottom to spur you to get back on your feet and face the world with two fingers up. That’s ok. It’s all ok, I assure you.

My body shame

Body shaming. 

What’s the first thing you think when you hear those words? I can almost guarantee that you immediately associate it with girls, myself included, but I can also assure you that it’s a problem for men too.

As someone that is constantly being told “You’re too skinny”, “Put on some weight” and “You’re just skin and bone”, it resonates right to my core when somebody says that body shaming doesn’t happen to men. Saying these comments might seem a little light-hearted and in good faith, but it’s truly amazing how much it has affected how I see myself.

Why I stopped caring and started living…

You know those times when people tell you to stop trying and you will never be disappointed? Well, that’s exactly that mantra that I’ve been living with at the moment and I honestly think I am a better person for doing so!

I am a firm believer in the proverb “Everything happens for a reason“, so learning to let go of the pressure and just get on with it has become something of the norm to me! I think by letting things go their own way is one of the most easy ways to live, letting nature take it’s course and leave life’s decisions down to fate.
