Do What Makes YOU Happy


So this blog post is going to be nothing like any of my usual ones; meaning no makeup, no clothes, no wishlists and no recipes. I was in the mood to sit down and write a chatty blog post and this has been a topic I have been thinking a lot about lately, and I decided it would be a good idea to combine my chattiness and this topic together. I apologise if it gets a bit preachy, but this is something I am very passionate about.

We live in a world where we are constantly thinking and worrying about other people; what they think of us, how they are feeling, and just generally how to make other people happy. Sometimes you need to take time out from thinking and worrying about other people, and in particular what they think of you, and just do what makes YOU happy. Take time out of your busy work and study schedule and take some time for yourself. You can spend all day working to please other people, but if you take no time to please yourself, it will all be for nothing. As they say, it's about working to live not living to work. 

If you want to book a holiday and just lie in the sun for a week - DO IT
If you want to order £50 worth of clothes from ASOS - DO IT.
If you want to order a takeaway - DO IT
If you have the money to do all these things and you want to do them - DO THEM.

Don't think about what other people will say about your decisions. It's your life, and if people are going to say to you "you can barely afford your rent why are you paying for a holiday?", ignore them. If you've saved up enough to pay your rent and go on holiday then why not do it? Why not order that dress you've bookmarked and been eyeing up for the past two months? Other people's opinions do not matter. You are the most important person in your life, and therefore you need to think about you.

Sometimes in life you just have to do things that will make you happy, even if you might regret it in a few days time (aka when you order £50 worth of clothes and realise you don't need any of them), it doesn't matter, because for a while that was something you wanted, and you went for it. 

As they say, in life you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the things you did
