Saying "NO"



There are three types of people in this world. The "Yes" people, the "No" people, and of course the "healthy balancers," who seem to have the whole world figured out. I have always found it hard to say no to anyone or anything, but lately I've been trying my best to find more of a healthy balance. Today's post is dedicated to my search of that balance that I crave so much.






Although I believe that it is so important to know and understand your limits, lately I feel like my whole life has been contradicting everything that I know to be true. From working too much to taking on too many new challenges, I'd be lying if I said that there was enough hours in the day to get everything done, because the truth is there's not.






There are 24 hours in a day, 168 hours a week and a total of 8736 hours in a year. Quite frankly that is just not enough time to waste on things that don't make you happy, or things that don't make you stronger or more able as a person. So recently I've been trying to refine my life, spending more time on things that I want to do and less on all that other stuff I try to do to keep everybody else happy.










I guess this outfit is inspired by my newfound ability to say "No." It's okay to be different, edgy and unique. It's okay to wear what you want and choose to do things that you know will make you happy. In today's look I'm wearing my new Primark/Penneys dress as a top, my favourite Boohoo high waisted skinny jeans, a very appropriate Zara bag, and of course my trusty Adidas Superstars.

Until next time,

Courage





I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't starting to feel like I'm getting older. I know, ironically 18 year old Sadhbh feels like she's getting old, and she is far too young for a mid life crisis moment. Let's call this a quarter life crisis. I feel as though I am growing up so quickly. Everything is changing. From the way I dress to how I address all that life throws at me, I have changed so much.

Way back when I was 15 I wrote a bucket list of 20 things I wanted to do before I turn 20. Time has flown since I wrote that list of impossibles that I somehow knew I could make possible, but I haven't forgotten about it. Although more than half of it is crossed off, I'm determined to finish the entire list before March 24 2018. I guess that's probably what has induced this "quarter-life crisis"

As scary as it seems to try to reach all those goals that 15 year old me set, part of me is glad that I have a list of things to follow and adventures to embrace before I reach my 20's. I'm glad that I still have time to make embrace being young and free

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are" - is one of my favourite quotes. It does take courage to grow and change, but it also takes courage to hold on to the same you that sits on your bed at 15 writing the impossible bucket list. 15 year old me is finally helping me realise what really matters in life. Life isn't a race. It's the adventure along the way that counts. 






Until next time,
