My One Year Blogiversary

♡ Today I am celebrating π’Άπ’Ύπ“‚π‘’π‘’π’Ήπ’Άπ“‡π“π’Ύπ“ƒπ‘”π“ˆ 1st blogiversary...Icant believe how quickly it has gone. I remember debating on whether I wanted to do this for so long as I was scared of what other people thought. With the help of my teacher and my family I decided to just go for it, writing is my passion, it’s how I express myself so why should I let other peoples opinions stop me. It’s the best thing I’ve done. It’s what’s helped me when I couldn’t find the words to speak, instead I would write it down. From the very start, and still to this day, my intention has always been to help people who are going through similar things I have struggled with for years, something I am extremely passionate about which is mental health. I won’t lie about it but there have been days I wanted to quit and I got into a bad habit of comparing myself to other bloggers as I thought I wasn’t good enough. But this is something I struggle with anyway in person. Comparing. But I’m only human and we are all on a journey. I joined groups of others bloggers and soon after I just felt inspired, motivated and determined to not let my insecurity control me. I want to make my blog successful and for it to reach so many more people in order to help them. But I want everyone to know there is a difference between success and greed and personally for me it’s never been just about statistics for me, I wanted a platform which I could share my life not only to help others but to help myself, as something to look back on in the future and to read what I’ve achieved. Looking back on my posts, there have been some amazing things. 

I’ve spoken to so many people in the past year and heard some amazing stories from such strong individuals. But at the heart of it all is my family. Without their support, guidance and love I wouldn’t be here today. There’s not enough words in the world to thank them. 

I’m also still learning about the blogging community and I’m starting to widen the topics that I write about including reading recommendations, which is another hobby I very much enjoy. As some already know, in September I will be starting University and I will be studying Creative Writing to pursue my dream of becoming a writer. A sentence I never thought I would say four years ago when I was in a very dark place. Every day is a struggle but I have achieved so much and I’ve always found it a struggle to say these words but I am proud of myself. I’m still here and standing. 

If you’re reading this now and you’ve been here since day one, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Writing is my passion and I want to share it with people. I am excited to learn more, to achieve more and to help more. Thank you all for staying with me and I hope you continue to do so. 
Here’s to another year and many more...
