my guilty pleasures lily melrose

I feel like now I'm entering mid twenties territory my life is flashing before my eyes. Hours, Days and Months pass by quicker than I care to admit sometimes. It’s interesting to see how much life changes over time though. I feel like the past is the past, dwelling on things does nothing for the soul but I do feel reflection is a really important part of moving onwards.

Going into 2014 I was coming out of a really bad year. On the prompting of a friend I decided to write down all the things about my life that were different then and now. I found it quite cathartic to write down my list my achievements and failures and sit back and reassess my life in 2014. It was healing in some ways to look at how far I’d come as a person and showed me that my hard work has really paid off. I grew in confidence as blogger, creator and in my personal life. Something just aligned at the end of 2014 that made everything make sense again. I felt like whatever I was doing was just right. I feel more authentic, like I could express my opinion without worrying and felt myself beaming with confidence all over again.

Life is constantly changing and full of milestones. It’s so easy to focus on the bad things in life and let the good things pass us by without a second thought. While I’ve always said I'm never quite sure where my life is heading - even at the age of 25 I don’t know what I want to do with my life. I'm really happy, positive and motivated with how things are progressing.

Always be proud of accomplishments, no matter how big or small. Reflect on the good and the bad time and use them to grow as a person. Think about  how much your life can change in such a short amount of time. It might not be perfect right now but in time things will work themselves out. I promise.
