Live a Little!

I've come to realise it's time to let loose and live a little!

(I do not own this photo. Source: Unknown)

I was always the person who people were shocked to see drinking, swearing or doing something a little bit astray of the 'goody two shoes' image. This was especially the case whilst I was at school and I have to say I got a little sick of it.

I'm a worrier and I over think everything. Recently I've realised that there is no joy or happiness to come from that, in fact it makes me upset, sad, worried and angry. Why can't I just live in the moment and enjoy what's happening rather then worrying what might happen the next day?

I want to start feeling happy in the moment. I want to not worry about getting in a little bit of trouble. I want to laugh more. I want to be more positive. I want to look back at my years as a young adult and think 'wow you had the best time' rather 'why did you sit there worrying so much?'

Don't worry, I'm not off to do loads of drugs, steal from a few shops and start fights with strangers... I will never be that person! By 'trouble' I don't mean with the police or any of that nonsense, I just mean the lighthearted saying that 'rules are made to be broken'.

I am not an unhappy person at all. I'm really happy, but I have these moments where worrying just takes over. I've found it effects me when writing blog posts and even more so filming youtube videos. I film a video, edit it all, uploaded it to youtube, go to post to twitter and suddenly think 'but what if that person who I went to school with, who I haven't spoken to in a year and who lives half way across the country makes a mean comment about it?' Well, I have come to realise (please do excuse my french, but this blog post calls for it!)... 'Who gives a sh*t if they do?!'

Just ignore that fact I've had a little to drink in both of these photographs... but this is the 'me' I want to see more of: I'm happy, I'm laughing, I'm singing my heart out, I'm hugging a plastic fish and I'm loving life, in the moment, with not a care in the world. 

So here's to the new G!



  1. I know what you mean! I am a constant worrier! You go girl! And good luck to you! Xx

    1. Ah thank you! I'm very happy you commented as I needed to remind myself of this again! :) x
