Bonjour! I'm not sure how to start this post, so I'm just going to dive right in. For the last week or two I've been absent from the blogging world - and I have to say that I have missed it very, very dearly. I've been going through some personal stuff, and it just didn't feel honest to write about positivity and life in a happy smiley way when I myself just wasn't that way. I feel like I am at the point where I can start preaching again on here, and I can now say with great certainty that going through tough things makes you stronger.
This morning I heard the phrase 'everything happens for a reason' and it really struck a cord with me, because I've never questioned whether or not I believe this. I can now say that yes, I do believe this, and it has brought a lot of comfort in realising so. It's an odd phrase. You can take it in a number of ways I suppose. You can say 'I'm sad that restaurant was closed but I'm sure it was the universe stopping me from getting food poisoning, thanks universe!' - which actually is not a bad way of thinking to be frank. However I see it more as - 'I suffer from anxiety but the world has a purpose for it, I am not to blame, it will make me strong for my future'.
Everything happens for a reason.
I have also been surprisingly busy, all pretty exciting things - there will most definitely be a picture blog post coming up soon about that too. For now though, I am in a very pretty garden eating the most amazing strawberries and trying to find a gorgeous dress to wear for my 21st birthday and graduation, which are both happening in the next few weeks.
Have a wonderful weekend!
