If you're in the UK right now, you understand the title...
Although that doesn't have much to do with this post, I just thought it was fitting and find the juxtaposition really quite comical. Although nothing unusual, based on our current global climate crisis - it just never ceases to amaze me that summer completely bypassed us yet again.
And I'm definitely not complaining... just an observation lol
Speaking of summer, your girl has had a productive one! From finally starting therapy to completing my project management course to shooting content... I'm already making sure I'm hitting the ground running come 2024.
The realisation of how far I've come in terms of self-awareness, maturity, confidence, independence, setting boundaries, emotional stability and mental strength is almost blinding now. I see it when I look at myself in pictures, when I'm about to make decisions, how I interact and communicate with people etc. I've put a stop to chasing perfection and instead am putting more emphasis on chasing growth, challenges that help me excel and unlearning years of pain and operating from a place of lack.
I want to dive deeper into my journey to beginning therapy at some point because for years on this blog I've talked about it but the fact that I bit the bullet, invested in it and am now actually seeing real life benefits from it, is not something I can or want to overlook.
The rate at which I've been changing and excelling has honestly been scary and very lonely at times but at others, has left me inspired by my own damn self!
Of course it's easy for me to say all this without much context, but believe me, you will start to see it in all the different ways I express myself on here in due time. As there are more eyes on this blog now, obviously, I have to be a lot more diligent about what I reveal moving forward so I won't divulge everything I'm up to/dealing with for my own safety.
One thing I would like to share is my content creator journey which even though I have a whole lot of work ahead of me still has already been going so well! I've really stepped outside of myself to challenge even more creativity and outward expressions of what's going on in my mind. With the help of some other talented individuals, my vision is starting to come to fruition and I'm toooooo excited! The content itself will be a separate entity from this blog, so don't expect to see much (outside of the occasional fire pictures I've taken!!), but of course, I will be a lot more open with that journey eventually. It's a huge passion of mine lately and therefore a huge part of me so exciting updates soon some!
Persistent work does pays off 👏🏾
Until then, here are some stills from my content shoot a few weeks ago:
