LifeStyle #1 | Dream Big and Let no one stop you!

Has anyone ever told you that you cant do something or you never been able to speak up and say your piece?

I wanted to write this post for a while as its quite personal to me, but have never really known if anyone has felt the same.

I was the youngest in my class in school as I was born to the end of August. I never really thought it had any effect on your education or personality until I started reading articles about the performance of those who were the youngest in their year. I do believe this does play a part in a young persons life from personal experience.

I was always the smiley, carefree person at school and still am to an extent. I always saw the best in every situation and took everything at face value. I never thought people would say one thing and mean another. I would always feel like ‘the kid’ at school, and never really felt like anyone would take me seriously which would sometimes make me doubt myself and think maybe I couldn’t do things. I would never believe in myself 100% until I had done it.  
When decisions would be made or some kind of seriousish discussion would me discussed I would never be taken seriously and would dismiss what I had to say, so some of the time I would just agree with everyone else. This does have an effect on your outlook and the way you confront situations, as you get older.

I didn’t have a lot of confidence at school educationally and would always be so shy when it came to things such as reading out loud I would be so embarrassed, I would admire people who have the courage to do such things.  These traits are still in me today I’m not always 100% confident when I speak out or feel silly when I do. I have just learnt to have a bit more faith.

I started working at Abercrombie and Fitch in London, after a few weeks of working there I started to change. My boyfriend pointed it out to me and said I had become more confident, and I guess I did. You have to put this front on when on the shop floor a perception of happiness, don’t get me wrong I did love my job but its hard to keep a smile for that many hours. We had to greet every customer that came through so I became very confident in being able to speak to so many different people. 

I spent most of my school years from the age of 7 training to be a gymnast, which turned into 18 hours a week, which you can imagine has an effect of your social life. I would not change that for the world as I have travelled around the world and met some amazing people and some of who are still my very close friends.

As I have grown and gone through different life situations and jobs I have grown as a person and grown a certain confidence and belief in myself.
I have learnt not to listen to what everyone else says, If you want to do something and believe you can go and do it. You only get one life.

I am now starting my own business and have decided to start blogging, which is a huge step for me because I have never done anything like this before and it’s a little scary.

If you feel like your not being heard or believe in yourself remember you can!! You only have one life so make it count, everyone way born an individual, you don’t have to be like everyone else, that’s boring. Only you can make things happen, and every step in your journey will take you to another place and you learn so many things its actually amazing.

So keep your chin up, Love yourself and remember to believe in who you are and what you stand for!
