Hello, I’m Lydia Marumo, a 20- something year old woman from Johannesburg, South Africa. I’m currently studying to get a diploma in radio production but have an overall love for entertainment and I’m looking to pursue a career in as many entertainment areas as I can someday.
When Lydia Smiles was inspired by my love for writing and my desire to share some happiness and positivity in the world. Smiling and finding joy in everyday life comes so naturally to me, I was nicknamed Smiley in high school. One of my dreams is to work at a fashion magazine and become a published author and this blog has become a way for me to bring myself out of my comfort zone to speak out to the world because I believe I have something valid to say in the sense that I believe I am capable of changing at least one person’s day, mood or life through my words and encouragement.
When Lydia Smiles
I’ve recently begun practicing the Law of Attraction and being in a positive mind-set is highly important when manifesting anything. When Lydia Smiles was created on the foundation of wanting to encourage positive thinking by inspiring people to find the good in everyday life, hence I created my gratitude segment, The Weekly Thanks. I write about a lot of other things on my blog which make me smile (and essentially make me who I am)— art, books, music, fashion, beauty and of course, the Law of Attraction. I’ve found it difficult to put my blog in one box as I feel that I’m not able to describe myself as one thing but, ultimately, the goal is always to inspire positivity, self-love, creativity, growth and perspective.
Thank you for reading! Love and light,
