Being 25 Is Hard Sometimes…

June 1, 2017


Okay I’m just going to say it… being a twenty-five-year-old woman is hard sometimes, especially when you’re a twenty-five-year-old woman who is about to turn twenty-six…

I’m currently going through a series of changes in my life (no, not THOSE kind of changes) and it’s all very exciting and at times a little scary and I want to talk about it!

It’s a common misconception that if you’re a woman who owns and runs a successful business you have your ish together and life is all sunshine, rainbows and being fed grapes by a gorgeous Greek Adonis and hey maybe it is for some women, but it isn’t for me.

I’m noticing more and more on the internet that Bloggers, YouTubers and basically anybody with a social media account will only talk about how perfect life is and rainbows and unicorns and glitter because we’re all so happy. I know that this is something I am guilty of at times.

I want to change that, I want real talk, I want to talk about feelings and changes and the process of selecting the Greek Adonis that will feed me grapes for all eternity.

So, for the month of June that’s what we’re going to talk about, I’m going to tell you about all of the changes in my life and we’re just going to take it back to basics. When I started this blog over ten years ago it was all about my life and my feelings and everything that was going on. Just over ten years later, my audience has grown considerably but we’re going to go back to basics and that’s the stuff we’re going to be talking about all month long because sometimes being a 25-year-old woman is hard and we should talk about that more.

I get at least ten emails a week from women of a similar age to me wanting life advice because they’re at a crossroads or going through changes and they don’t know what to do, I love reading and replying to those emails but I never quite understand why people come to me for advice because behind the blog posts and the happy carefree live streams and snapchats / Instagram stories I spilt coffee all over my map and the dog ate my guidebook and most of the time I don’t have a clue where I’m going or what I’m doing.

I’m excited to tell you all about the changes over the next month and I’ll start to get into them properly tomorrow but just as a little teaser I want to quote from my “About” page that I wrote on December 28th, 2016.

“For me, 2016 was a year of change, of getting better, of cutting ties, closing doors, setting suns and leaving the past behind. I’m very excited for 2017 because I’m not entirely sure what adventures are waiting for me, it’s a little bit scary but as it says on my left wrist… In Omnia Paratus!”

I never could’ve predicted in a million years the changes and adventures I’m about to embark on! I’m really happy with this new direction my life is heading in!

I’ll tell you more tomorrow!

In Omnia Paratus,
