A 17 year old UK blogger.
I guess I can call myself that now, right?
I’ve decided to start this blog for two reasons: to act as an online journal, and to connect with people who share the same passions as me. I want it to be somewhere that I can totally be myself and I can share ideas, experiences and advice with others.
My passions in life are dancing, reading and, of course, writing. Those are the things that I love to immerse my heart and soul into, because they’re what makes me me. My family also mean the world to me. Those, along with my friends, are the people who I look up to and where I get most of my inspiration from. On top of this, I also have a newfound interest in photography, which I’m hoping this blog can help me delve further into.
So, those are the facts. The things you immediately think of when someone asks you to describe yourself. But, to be able to truly connect with you, I want you to know a little bit more. I want you to understand the things that make my life special and completely unique to me.
First of all, I like the little things in life. Like walking across a beach, taking a bubble bath or making somebody smile. Those are the things I think we should all learn to love, cherish and appreciate. They’re the little finishing touches to life that, when you think about it, can make it truly wonderful. I believe that everyday we should think of three things that have made us smile. The little things that, even though you may not have realised it at the time, made everything worthwhile.
Another thing you should probably know is that I’m a perfectionist. Well, I say that, but a perfectionist is described as ‘a person who refuses to accept any standard short of perfection’. So, we strive to do something until it’s ‘perfect’, but what exactly is it that we’re working towards? You see, everyone has a different perspective on the world – we all have different ideas, different likes, different dislikes – so we’re all working towards something completely different. If that’s the case, how can anyone possibly achieve perfection, when your idea of perfect may not be the same as everybody else’s?
Finally, I want to finish every one of my blog posts with a quote. A quote that I’m hoping will act as a tiny bit of inspiration for you. I’m not expecting to change the world, but I’ve always longed to inspire somebody and, if this blog comes anywhere near helping me to fulfill that dream, I’ll be incredibly happy.
