Things you can control

In life there are some things you can’t control but there are plenty of things you can.

Here are a few below to digest

 

Your beliefs

Your attitude

Your thoughts

Your perspective

How honest you are

Who your friends are

What books you read

How often you exercise

What food you eat

What risks you take

How kind you are

How often you say I love you

How often you say thank you

How you express your feelings

Whether or not you ask for help

How many times a day you smile

The amount of effort you put into things

Standing up to a bully

After 17 years – that’s how long since I left school you would think that bullying may have been a thing of the past. To be honest I think it’s got 10 times worse.

I was sadly a victim of bullying from alot of my year at school all because my skin wasn’t clear. I was verbally abused and then come the end of school physically.

It won’t ever leave me, but I always think I never want anyone else to have the sadness and pain I did. I know in reality that there will be thousands in the world who will feel the same pain.

Here is how you can spot a cactus friend – those that pretend to be your friend then stab you in the back…and a flower friend – the ones who truly love you and love to see you bloom.

They say it takes a bigger person to walk away from a bully. If you feel strong enough inside to stand up for yourself then don’t let someone walk all over you. But in turn don’t be horrible and become a bully in the process.

Bullying doesn’t just doesn’t happen when you’re young… People of any age fall victim and its so very sad. Cyber crime is on the up as people find it an easy way to target the vulnerable.

If we keep speaking about anti bullying, and looking after ourselves and our friends maybe one day it’ll be something we don’t have to worry about.

The return of the fringe

I was looking through some old photos of myself and it seems that the fringe has been a love hate relationship.

However I wanted to look at the ones of me with longer hair with one so I can decide what I’m going to do with my mop once it gets to that length.

So this is 2008 and I think that a boyfriend I was with at the time saw a old pic of me with a fringe and said I looked ‘hot’ with one so I went and got one, safe to say when he dumped me I pinned it back and grew it out 🙈

This next one was 2014. I had grown my bob that was blonde to above my shoulders and thought I’d dye it brown and bring back the fringe. I think in this pic I look younger than I did in the first. I think I got fed up of getting it trimmed and it went…again.

This is me today 2019 for future readers. This is a £20 amazon wig. I’m actually really digging it. It’s very close to natural colour so I can dream of when it’s this length. I may brave it and wear it out, well my theory is its gonna keep my ears warm in the winter.

Have you had any hairstyles that just keep creeping back in?

Make someone else’s day

Even though I haven’t stepped foot outside my front door today I have made sure that I’ve made some people smile today

I have had a couple conversations on the phone, and I made sure there was a bit of laughter in there somewhere. I always think if I’ve made at least one person happy then I am happy.

On my Instagram I couldn’t help but show the silly side of me with a good old sing-along and a Snapchat filter

Here it is 🙈

Sometimes people won’t be having a good day and might not have it in them to let you know. But a little cheerfulness goes a long long way.

The days not out so go make someone’s day.

Random Q and A

I love a little Q and A, get to know people/yourself.

Found on good old Pinterest I picked a few from a list, so here goes.

1. Crush? Well I’m a bit old for crushes but there is one man I like to swoon over every time I see him 😍

2. Eye colour? Green, with a tiny bit of brown at the top. I get a lot of compliments on them.

3. Last time I cried? Watching someone die of cancer on a soap ( a week ago)

4. Biggest fear? Its a toss up of moths and sick (Eww to both)

5. Last song I listened to? Taylor Swift – Bad Blood. Was on one of my playlists on Spotify.

6. Relationship Status? Single, it’ll have to take an amazing person to change that.

7. Are you currently happy? No I’m scared I have the dentist in a few hours that includes alot of drilling. Must take earphones.

8. Favourite colour? If you haven’t guessed already by the theme of the blog it’s pink… Been obsessed since I was about 12. If its pink I’m having it.

9. Pet peeves? Chamming (eating with your mouth open), loud breathers (I know we got to breathe) 🙈, polystyrene cos I hate the way it feels and breaks (kind of a phobia I guess)

10. Last book I read? Not that type of girl by Lena Durham. It was well interesting. Still not completely finished it but that’s me and books all over.

Me swooning over that man 😍
