I think we all need a little self pep talk from time to time don’t we? Little motivational speech given by yours truly, to yours truly. It’s feels like ages since I wrote a really personal ‘here’s what I’m thinking’ style blog post, and I kinda miss writing them tbh! So I thought I’d share my pep talk in written form, for myself / whoever needs a little pick-me-up to read. 🙂
— It’s OK if you’re constantly saying ‘I’m gonna do X Y and Z’ and only getting round to half the things you say you will. Better to overestimate, right?
— It’s OK to feel 10x more confident in yourself when you have a tan, or a flick of eyeliner. Superficial yeah, but if it helps, it helps!
— It’s OK to feel like you’re spreading yourself too thinly. Trying to juggle everything at once can be difficult but it’ll be OK in the end! You’re keeping doors open and being an all-rounder. Think of it that way.
— It’s OK to not care what the label on your clothes says. Some of my absolute favourite items (and ones that you guys seem to like too) are absolute bargains. Doesn’t matter if you’re not fussed about labels at all.
— It’s OK if you feel like you’re not fulfilling your potential, yet. You’ll get there!
— It’s OK to feel restless for no apparent reason. Some days something just isn’t right, and you can’t put your finger on it.
— It’s OK to love the geeky TV programmes the most. If I ever watch TV, it’ll either be the Great British Sewing Bee or some incredibly nerdy documentary. Love me a good documentary.
— It’s OK to not want the same things as everybody else. All your pals dying to move away to university and you have absolutely zero desire to go? Perfectly fine. Me too, come say hi!
— It’s OK to sometimes feel like the entire internet is conspiring against you. Or like you just don’t know how to internet. Or feel like an outsider on the internet. Oh internet, what a babe you are.
— It’s OK to change your mind about what you want to do with your life every 5 minutes. Probably won’t end up with the life you imagined anyway, so better to just go with the flow. Each day at a time and all that.
You got this <3
