Being on holiday is such an amazing time! You’re in a space where you can escape your reality, take in new experiences in an unknown land for an often short yet amazing period. The thing I love about holidays the most is that it gives me time to pause and reflect on my life. Taking the time away from my daily reality to really take stock and assess the things that mean the most to be.
My trip to Mykonos will definitely go down in history as one of my most iconic trips for many reasons (most of which will stay holiday secrets). While posting pictures and tagging outfits I also want to briefly cite how the holiday changed my perspective on a few things in my life.
The weird things about me are what make me ME
I am such an odd ball at times but over the years I’ve learnt to accept all my quirks and peculiarities. These are the things that make me unique and are also the things that draw people closer to me (well at least I think it is!). Growing up I often felt I had to act a certain way to fit on, or mute certain aspects of my personality but I am so glad to be in a space where I feel free to unleash the real, uncensored, unfiltered version of myself and still be accepted.
I love my friends – and friends of friends
I honestly don’t know who or where I would be without my friends. I’ve actually decided to stop calling my friends ‘friends’ – at this point some of them deserve to be family because they have (and I hope they continue) to have a significant impact in my life. Being in friendships where you can be so open and honest, hate them one minute, love them the next and still maintain a consistent level of respect for, is what I live for! The friends of my friends are also my friends, because birds of a feather flock together …. and this flock is LIT!
Life is too short to sweat the small stuff
Easier said than done! I’m learning (day by day) to not let things which are often insignificant get to me or bring me down. I have a lot of things to be happy and thankful about and I hope that I will continue on this path where I consider the bigger picture and count my blessings rather than counting my problems.
Seize the opportunity (no matter the cost) – Some moments in life are priceless
Damn Mykonos was an expensive trip – (my bank account is still giving me side eye)! However sometimes you’ve got to seize opportunities as they present themselves. Worrying about having the time to do things or the money to do things is pointless. Because time will go, money will go but the memory of the things you experience will last forever!
