A very long time ago now I sent a DM on Instagram to some of my closest blogging friends and I asked them ' What is the best piece of life advice you have ever received?' and they all got back to me, which was great. Admittedly I completely forgot I even asked them this question and it wasn't till the other day that I realised that I hadn't actually made the blog post, I said I would. So here it is a whole 12 weeks later, their response!
" If you try your best at something then no matter what happens you can be proud and know that you couldn't have done any more, whether that be at school, sport etc. "
"Anything is possible if you can dream it you can do it! Never give up on your hopes and dreams. Just have the motivation to continue every step of the way, even if you get knocked down along the way, and soon you will be one step closer and eventually there"
" If at first you don't succeed-try, try again. Never give up"
" Look at yourself, look at how beautiful you are. Pick out your best feature and notice it! You need to learn how to accept and love yourself and be comfortable in your own skin so that you can face the day confidently no matter what your flaws. Everyone has flaws, everyone is beautiful on the inside and the outside
" Don't worry, there are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure"
" Don't compare yourself to others, ever. why? because individuality is why you are loved and similarity is boring"
" Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain"
" I just believe that everything happens for a reason and if you don't get something- it obviously wasn't meant to be"
" Believe in yourself and you are halfway there. A positive mindset works wonders"
" Yeah yeah yeah, that's really nice and all, but what was the point of this post? The idea of this post was to bring some positivity to your day, which sounds really cheesy and something that I don't really do on my blog that often But the thing is, I am the writer, editor and photographer of this blog, I run it all by myself, so you only ever hear my advice, my opinions, my stories etc. Something that I am very aware of is becoming to narcissistic. I don't like to hear my own voice over and over again like a broken record, telling you the same things. Sometimes it's nice to have a breath of fresh air and hear it from a different voice.
Thank you to all the girls that were part of this post! I'm sorry it's been so long but you know life gets ahead of you sometimes!
Thanks for reading!
