You know how they say that once you stop believing in coincidence, your life starts making so much sense? Well, something stalked the heck out of me on my social medias until I gave in and the results have been beautiful.
I was about 6 when I realised something was seriously wrong with me. On my first day of ‘big school’, we’d been assigned seats and I sat in a group with 3 other girls, these two long desks put
We’ve made it to yet another month and I’m honestly very thrilled to be free of my college stress for at least a few weeks to get back into the swing of blogging and focusing my energy on my other passions.
Dear past and current Lydia,
In light of it still being the month of love, I’ve been inspired to write a letter from the future to both my past and present selves. Most times, we live a life of stress and panic; we’re afraid of taking leaps of faith for our passions or the people we love out of fear of failure or even the fear of beginning, because of the unknown. You’re a perfectionist and always want to come out on top with a bit of praise and, while that’s okay, facing your fears is the first step.
One of the lessons that being single has taught me is the importance of self-love. When you go a while without being romantically involved with someone, you have no choice but to focus on yourself and on how you can grow while you wait for the right person to come along.
My Law of Attraction journey has since taught me that there is no such thing as coincidence. You are always at the right place at the right time and, in that time, whatever you come across (be it through whichever of your senses) is simply a message the Universe has been meaning to give to you— you are at the perfect place and in the perfect state to receive. That’s something, isn’t it?
IT’S THE MONTH OF LOVE!
For a lot of people, February is just a drag because it means that the shops are stocking up on Valentine’s day things to sell to you and you’re reminded quite bluntly that you’re the single friend while everyone has plans for February 14th and all you have, for yet another year, is your TV and a box of tissues (you could even blame my fellow Scorpios for this because apparently we created this lovely day to scam everyone into conceiving more Scorpios. I love this idea better). I really want to say that I feel your pain and that we can all virtually hold hands around an imaginary fire and sing some anti-love songs but, firstly, I’m here with a lot of self-love posts lined up for you and secondly, I’m manifesting a Valentine’s day date so I can’t cry with you this year. Sorry.
After spending the last twelve months counting down to the end of it, we begin the cycle all over again in 2019.
A lot of the time, people get caught up in asking and asking to fulfil their materialistic desires and I’ve realised that this is a habit that some people have, not just towards the Universe/ God but towards other people too.
The year is almost coming to an end and more than anything, I am so excited to be stepping into my birthday month to reflect on my growth over the last 12 months. I’ve looked forward to this time since it was this time last year, and while I’ve been counting down the months to yet another birthday, I’ve learned to enjoy the journey this time around.
