Things Blogging Has Taught Me About Life

As most people will know my blog is 2 this month and I honestly cannot believe how quickly it has gone but I am so grateful for this incredible journey that I have had over the past 2 years. When I started my blog, little did I know it would teach me a lot about my life and the kind of person that I am. My blog has been such an incredible outlet for my creativity, to be able to cope better with my mental health but also to meet new people which makes everything just so perfect! So what has blogging taught me?

You can achieve anything.

I doubt myself at the best of times but I shouldn’t do, mainly because if I put my mind to it, I work hard and don’t stop until I get there I can really achieve anything I wish. It isn’t easy in blogging as there are so many incredible and hard working bloggers out there, but there are so many opportunities out there! You’ve got this!

You cannot be perfect.

Perfection is a struggle, but instead of striving for perfection, strive for the best you can ever be. When you work hard you reap the results and never forget the importance of hard work because eventually it really does pay off!

It’s natural to make mistakes.

I’ve made so many mistakes in blogging, but it is all about trial and error! I was always scared of slipping up and making mistakes but do you know what when I do it is actually a good thing! I am growing as a person, I am learning everyday and also I appreciate the journey that it takes me on!

Put yourself out there.

I am the kind of person that I quite shy even though I don’t tend to come across like that when I’m on social media, but if you want something put yourself out there a little. I actually went after a lot the opportunities that I have had on my blog & I don’t regret it one bit, I’m so grateful for everything I have had the opportunity to do!

Asking for help is okay.

I have a lot of pride. I mean a lot. I hate asking for help in a lot of things to be quite honest, however through my blogging journey I have actually swallowed my pride a little and accepted that asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness – ever.

Surround yourself with positive people.

I have lately needed this more than anything in the world, having positive people around you makes everything so much better in life. Not only that it makes a massive difference to have all the positive vibes around me as that is exactly what I have needed with my mental health.

As it is my blogs 2nd birthday there is a wonderful self care package for you to win here!

Have you learned anything on your blogging journey?

    I completely relate to this! I’m classed as a friendly introvert but appear much more chatty online. Blogging has taught me a lot and this is the year I think I’m going to start moving out of my comfort zone to try and get my blog to grow out of the 42 followers it has now and into my first triple digit. #goals

    Great post Amie!

    I’ve always been a writer but I’ve never had much confidence in what I wrote – in terms of sharing it with others – until this blog so I agree that putting yourself out there is scary but very worthwhile. I’m still a little iffy about people I know IRL reading it, but I love connecting with others and it’s so amazing that even when writing about the darkest struggles, I can find support from people online that don’t even know me, and that we can all work to help each build each other up. There are some really awesome things that have come through blogging, and this post has made me think about them! xx

    Yesss, love it. I agree with this completely, I am a perfectionist and I need to remind myself that I just need to be happy with doing the best that I am.
