Fear of the unsuccessful

You know I was asked recently what I was most scared of. Initially I couldn’t think of anything since I’m not the kind of girl who winces at spiders or faints at the sight of blood. For me I’ve always been fearful of being unsuccessful, and I think this is where the whole concept of pressuring myself comes into action.

You see, I take things too seriously sometimes because I’m always striving for more. I’m rarely satisfied because I love to push myself to the maximum, and if I’m working/studying something unfulfilling it really affects me, and I find myself getting frustrated because I’m not at my full potential.

Along with working on living with uncertainty I’m working on living in the present. It’s super important for me and my mental well-being to appreciate the journey, because success doesn’t often happen over-night. I suppose it depends what you determine as ‘success’ too. If success was waking up in the morning with a positive outlook every day I would be successful a lot of the time.

I think part of the problem with my generation is that there’s always a want/need for more. This is due to constant comparison. What we forget is that we should be working towards bettering our lives for ourselves! Not for anyone else, not to be able to compare further and judge each other’s achievements. We are all running our own race in our own time. Love the journey and embrace it, believe that you will make it and you will.

All my love,

Get to Know me a bit better!

Good morning beautiful readers. How are we all today? God knows why but I’m in a bit of a low mood, even after going on a morning run, so that’s a sign to me that after I’ve written this post I need to get outside again and go and visit my grandparents and get social rather than wallowing in my own pity at home on my own. Because I find that when I’m on my own it’s easy to get sucked into a black hole of despair, and as I just said I really don’t have anything to be sad about!

So here’s the Questions and Answers for you all- enjoy!

What’s my favourite book? This would have to be The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregroy for me. I absolutely love historical faction, it’s my favourite genre, and this book started my addiction to it! Gregory actually inspired me to write a dissertation about Anne Boleyn for my EPQ in Sixth form, that’s how much this book moved me!

Favourite Ice-cream flavour? Anything chocolaty, honestly I think I’m addicted to chocolate it’s pretty bad!

What’s your most embarressing childhood memory? I don’t know if this is the most embarressing but it’s one of the only ones I can remember, I kissed this boy at his house when I was like 3/4 and I went in for it so hard he hit his head on the end his bed post!

3 favourite movies? I’m not even going to lie to you guys I don’t really watch TV, like seriously… This probably isn’t an absolute favourite but I do love the movie Safe Haven, I love the scenery and picturesqueness of the area it’s filmed.

What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been? I would have to say South of France, we hiked between these moutains, the views were gorgeous and there were so many natural pools and greenery it was magical.

What accomplishment are you most proud of? Starting this freaking blog! I’ve always wanted to create an influence for myself, starting YouTube was another one of my big achievements, it’s just keeping commited to it!

Who would you like to live like for a day? May sound weird considering I’m a 19 year old girl, but I would love to be David Attenborough, I love the things he gets to experience and the influence he can weild, all for good causes too!

If you could ask your pet 3 questions what would they be? Do I annoy you by calling you cute all the time? Do you like being smothered? Do you love me?

When you’re having a bad day what do you do to make you feel better? One of the key things I do which eleviates me immediatly is writing it all down to find a solution, or I meditate, eat chocolate, have a bath, see my friends, cuddle my mum, go on a dog walk, get outside, go running…

Using one word how would you describe your family? Unfortunatly… COMPLICATED.

Who is the kindest person you know? Honestly I cannot pick between all my friends, I’d feel bad just writing one name down so here’s a few- Maisie, Lydia, Katy, Laurine… the list is endless.

What is the scariest movie you’ve ever seen? The Babadook really shook me up, I had to sleep with the lights on…

Celebrity crush? Gavin Leatherwood from Sabrina is seriously sexy omg..

That was a bit of random one folks, I could go on and on but I don’t want to bore you all to be honest! If you want to get to know me better you can always shoot me an email or comment below! Feel free to answer any of these yourselves too, I’m intruiged as to what you guys are like too, lets get to know each other!

All my love,

HG
