BEGINNING A NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE

Hey loves! How are you? I’ve been SO incredibly busy, and so that’s the reason for a short break here on my blog. As I mentioned a few months ago, I’M MOVING TO LONDON, well next week to be precise! The nerves have caught up with me and just like all the other six times in my life where I moved to a new country, I know that nerves are a good thing! Although I’ve moved around the world enough times, I still want to know any tips any of you might have to share with me and it would be great if any of you are londoners as well ūüôā

What’s to come

Since it’s my last few days in Nairobi, I’m spending them with good company and making beautiful memories before I leave. Tomorrow night we’re all going out to KIKOY CULTURE and I’m sure it’ll be an amazing night and then after lot’s of quality time together with people I love. THEN TOUCH DOWN IN LONDON and I’ll be celebrating my 21st! As for the blog, I’ve got scheduled posts that are going to go up and of course I will keep you updated and take you along with me on my big journey.

Hey Loves! How are ya? I currently am in bed watching a few videos from Marie Forleo/ Marie TV on Youtube. The video I’m watching is all about feeling lost and trust me I’ve been there. Although I have always had a pretty clear idea of who I wanted to become and the things I wanted to accomplish, I always felt lost in not knowing how to get there or worst of all; worrying about my future.

I’m not going to lie; I don’t just about my success within my career life in the future but about relationships I’m in, I worry about time, I worry about accessibility , I WORRY A LOT. Well, I used to…

A lot has changed over the past year and I’ve began to worry less. In no way does this mean I don’t worry anymore, but I’ve learned how to cope when I do worry.

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL

For a while, I would worry endlessly, and a lot of the things I worried about were inevitable for example making mistakes, getting my heart broken or experiencing one big confusion about my life and career. Guess what? All three of these things have happened to me! I can proudly say that I’m not yet where I want to be, but I remember to aware of what I can control. For example, my priorities right now are my visa application, a copy-writing class I’m doing and my online content. These things I can control whether I put effort into them or whether I decide to put them on the back burner. In terms of friendships and relationships however; you can worry about where those will take you but always remember to bring it back to yourself and if you have any doubts be conscious of it and communicate!

ENJOY/EMBRACE THE MOMENT EVEN IF IT’S HORRIBLE

Learn to enjoy or embrace the moment you’re in. There’s a fantastic quote I once heard which said ” I’ve learned to appreciate happiness , love and all the great things in life because I know what it’s like having felt the opposite of that and being full of pain” , I don’t know about you but I can relate to this entirely! Even in the toughest of times, I think the best thing to do is not resist it, bask it in and experience it , so that when things do turn around you can truly appreciate its worth entirely. As Marie says, making this moment its fullest potential could give you amazing opportunities for the future.

GRATITUDE

Sometimes when we worry too much, we often visualize what we don’t have and dwell on that , of course it’s a very human like thing to do BUT shift your perspective sometimes and instead of looking down upon it, be thankful for what you do have or what has happened in your day even if it’s being thankful for someone opening the door for you, or having an amazing meal, that way you can attract better things and can understand the value of gratitude!

FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU NEED RIGHT NOW

A lot of our worries tend to be connected to a lot of things we perhaps need emotionally, worried about your friendship? Perhaps spend more valuable ( valuable is the important bit) time with your friends, family and partners. Feeling insecure about your skills? Take an online course, FUTURE LEARN and SKILL SHARE have so many incredible online courses, you could patch up your skills or even go out and learn something new!

I hope these tips were helpful! Have you got any other tips to help with worrying? Let me know in the comments!

Kisses,

Hey loves! It’s been almost 2 months since I put up my last post on here. WOW I have missed blogging. A lot of my friends and of course you guys have asked where I’ve been , or did I stop blogging? The the truth is, I took a break from EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE. I had to for my health, my sanity, for my growth.

 

WHAT HAPPENED?

To start off, a couple of months ago when I left Australia, I hadn’t officially announced that I was leaving Australia for good. I left for very many reasons. Mentally I was all over the place and felt like, I NEEDED TO BREATHE. I came home to my mom and my cousin Hellen ( FYI we don’t live together but we see each other often) . ¬†As much as I thought I was okay, because I suppressed ¬†a lot, I wasn’t ok and that eventually led me to a hospital where I was almost admitted into. The truth is, all I was doing for a while was pushing myself and my engine had no fuel in it, I couldn’t stand people, I had the worst social anxiety and hid in my house, and I began to hate myself. I went off of social media for a really long time. I did it because it felt like noise for a while and felt a tremendous amount of pressure.

6 MONTHS

The truth is, the first 4 months of my life were hell. It’s an understatement to say I couldn’t get out of bed, but I could barely take a shower everyday. I couldn’t dress up. Leggings and sweatshirts were my go to no matter where I went. Both my mom and Hellen noticed this huge change in me. But it’s not that I was lazy, but physically couldn’t dress up everyday. I was always uncomfortable or in pain ( which also had to do with the serious back problems I was facing). I did nothing but cry to my therapist, and my best friend about how I felt like I wasn’t myself and felt like everything was spinning all the time, I felt out of focus or I guess out of touch. But into the second week of April, I guess you could say a shinning light came through, I saw doctors, got on the right medication where I began to get the right help. I will say that a lot of spirituality helped me. ¬†I few weeks prior, I created a vision board ( BLOG POST + VIDEO COMING SOON) .¬†

Even more importantly, I had the best 3 individuals hold my hand along the way. And after that along the next two months, I manifested so many things I wanted in my life!

WHAT IS TO COME? 

First off, I’m moving to… LONDON,¬†words cannot describe how incredibly thankful I am to not only have the opportunity to head to the school of my dreams but to live in the fast, vibrant city of London! I will pick up blogging and try my best to produce regular content. I want to keep being open and honest with all of my readers, not just about my successes but bumps along the way too! Lastly, give the best advice I can based off of personal experiences. Remember: THINGS WILL FALL INTO PLACE¬†

WHY I DECIDED TO SPEAK UP ABOUT THIS

There is such a standard for perfection and sometimes we forget we’re human, we can definitely have our doubts about our future and we can grow from the worst of experiences life will give us, but THINGS WILL FALL INTO PLACE. ¬†I don’t want to put a false impression of who I am or how my life is going; I choose to be open about it because it will help me grow and I hope it can do the same for you as well!

The last thing I want you to take out from this post is ; life isn’t necessarily about our success or our failure, yes that will make up some part of it. But majority of it will be growth and be the women or men we want to be.
