I don't drink coffee a lot but I actually made myself one; I'm not sure whether I made it to look more authentic for the post, or whether I just generally wanted one. We will never know the answer to that life question!
Quite a bit has been going on in my life over the past couple of months and I feel I'm now ready to start talking about it - don't worry, it's nothing bad or anything like that. If anything, I'm casting aside the negative from my life and starting anew with a brand new mindset and way of thinking. Let's just break this down into manageable chunks.
I've started a new business. That's the first time I've said it out loud, (or typed it for all those pedantic readers out there) and it feels good; I'm a Younique presenter. Younique is first and foremost a makeup company, but our mission is to uplift, empower and validate women around the world - it's more than just a makeup brand. This experience is really taking me out of my comfort zone and encouraging me to be more confident in everything that I do, and not just my business. I've only been a part of it for a couple of months now but I can already feel my journey is just beginning, and I'm so excited to see where this takes me in my business and in my life.
Keeping with this theme, I've also started working on myself in a personal development kind of way - I've started reading books of this nature and am beginning to get into the mindset of a positive thinker. I don't want to have any unnecessary negativity in my life, and I'm doing my best to clear my world of this influence. I've always been a believer that thinking positive thoughts will, in turn, lead you to see positive results, however, I was always a partially negative person and often wouldn't see the positive in every situation. I'm trying to change this!
As mentioned in my last Dear Diary post, the fact that I have now got some plans set in stone as to what I'm going to do with the remaining few months of my Australian visa has been a massive weight off of my shoulders, but I have also started planning some new travelling expeditions for next year as well. In August 2017 I am off to New Orleans for the Younique Annual Convention which will be AWESOME, and although it's a year away, I'm already super excited. I'm hoping to combine this with a trip to Canada in order to visit a good friend I met travelling, this would be equally amazing to do as I've always wanted to go to Canada - it looks absolutely b-e-a-utiful!
Now, with regards to my blog, I've had a million and one ideas of what to write, where to take my blog next and an eventual rebrand of everything. Despite all of these ideas running around my mind, I just haven't been able to stop thinking about my Younique business, which is not a bad thing in the slightest as it shows that I'm passionate about what I do. However, I want to be extremely passionate about my blog as well! I'm just very much a mood writer, and if I don't feel like writing then I just physically can't write. I'm trying to be more productive and schedule my days better to fit everything in rather than getting up late and not even starting anything until 11AM, which is just a waste of half a day. I always say I don't have time for things, but the truth is, I do - in the time I spend on facebook, I could be doing things that will impact my life and my passions, and that is what I want to do!
Last but not least, and I don't know if this one will be forever, I've decided to give up alcohol! Yes, I know what you're probably thinking, "Yeah, yeah, everyone says that after they've had a big night out", but I've been thinking about this for a while now. I know nobody likes the aftermath of drinking, but alongside the headaches and puking, I get emotional hangovers - I get anxious, depressed and nervous. I get like this every single time I drink, and I hate it, I can't and I won't deal with it anymore. I'm not a casual drinker, I can't just have a glass of wine in the evening and that's it, I'm a go hard or go home kinda gal, which isn't a good thing but also doesn't help with the way I feel. I'm not a massive fan of the taste either, it's something I could live without, so I've decided to try and live without it! I will keep you updated on this one but I personally feel as though it's the right thing for me to do.
Anyways, that's enough about me, how're you doing? I feel as though I haven't spoken to you guys properly in a while.
Tell me what's been going on in your life
