Hey! Hi! Hello!
So I guess I don’t really know how to introduce myself… I’m Olivia, also known as Liv, Livia, Livi, and Yahyah to many others. I’m here for one reason and one reason only, to showcase my perfectly imperfect life. There are so many things that should be said, they will most definitely be said on here. To be completely honest this blog hasn’t got a purpose, it’s just for me.
My mum started a blog back in 2005 (before it was even cool!) There she kind of talked to herself, I actually never knew about it until sometime in 2013. By then she’d stopped doing it, however, it’s still very strange to look back and see all of the memories she showcased on there. Weekly, my mum posted about her days and adventures living her totally ‘normal’ life, even though the initial reasoning was because my brother was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia just after he was born. I think she felt she needed to find somewhere to escape and write her feelings down; the blog did that for her.
I guess that’s what my aim is here, to find escape whilst not escaping.
There are so many different types of blogs out there; beauty, fashion, photography, cooking and many more. However, I hate stereo-typing and putting people (and things) into certain categories. That’s why I don’t know what I’m going to be posting! One week I may post about my day and the next I could be showcasing some of my photographs; the possibilities are endless.
2015 is going to be amazing, I can just feel it. Like every year (for the past 3 years) I have made a mantra, that I will use and live by, maybe for just that year or maybe forever after. This year it is; “Just do what makes you happy, there is no point in being down about something that you don’t need to be down about” I know this sounds totally cliché of me, however, so far it’s working! If I’m being honest I took on this approach from about October/November last year and I’ve never been so happy.
People go through a lot of crap in life, it happens.
There isn’t anything you can do to stop things from happening. Nevertheless, keeping a positive attitude and accepting things or people for what they are, is important. I can’t say that this year is going to be the “best year ever” for everyone, but I hope that if you are feeling down, you know there is a light at the end of that tunnel.
You’re alive and that’s one thing we all have in common.
