Priya ✨  Gratitude & Positivity Self - Care, Love & Respect

"Peace starts with suffering, freedom starts with confinement, courage starts with fear, strength starts with surrender, every mountain starts beneath the earth and you too, shall rise". In other words I mean business 🐍✨

In a previous post I mentioned that I always want to explore new places but I rarely explore London. I mean I go to London but I never try to find new places.
In an effort to change my ways here's the first tick on my Exploring London List: Afternoon Tea at The Barbican Conservatoryβœ”. It's so pretty!!
I melted a few times inside there, gracefully of course.....but it was practically 30Β°c that weekend. So yes number one is done, what to choose next πŸ€“. .
Photo creds totally go to my pal @ohbloodyellindsey πŸ“·βœ¨

If you find yourself in the position where you have to convince someone of your worth - they aren't worthy of your time. In the past I've sat around wasting my energy trying to mould my way into somebody's list of "priorities".
It sounds awful but it's true - that word has even been used (urgh)! I've now come to realise it's an injustice to my own wellbeing. Why should a person feel like they need to change or wait for someone else? Whilst being sat on the sidelines of anothers life, your own passes you by..
It's not a weight made for our shoulders, somethings and some people are just not meant for us. If we don't fit into that perfectly cut empty space in the puzzle - then maybe it's because we were made for something better πŸ€·πŸΎβ€βœ¨

When the topic of living abroad came up in general chit chats - I'd always say "hell yes I want to live abroad!". London to me has always felt like a busy, unfriendly place filled with people in a rush and mostly miserable unless the sun is shining (even then we still complain πŸ˜‚). But I realised when I visit anywhere else I fully immerse myself into my surroundings. I research where to explore, plan fun trips and make memories. So why don't I do it where I live? Now don't get me wrong I'm not moving anywhere anytime soon lol - but it got me thinking..How judgemental am I against London to write it off before I've truly experienced it πŸ™ˆ. In an attempt to give the old girl a chance, I've made a list of things I want to do in London throughout the year. Who knows maybe she'll change my mind... Where are your favourite places in London?✨

Hi babe, I fancied a change. Let's call it my little big chop ha βœ‚πŸŽˆ! I've been pretty quiet on instagram this year & in general. To be totally honest, I've always battled with confidence issues and for a brief moment I felt deflated. So I decided to bury my head in the books I love, spent time with the people who make me smile & embraced a little tlc. Life isn't always perfect and you know what - that's ok! It's good to set high standards but f*** me sometimes we just need to be happy with where we're at right now. So hello ❀ I had my hair cut last weekend and I decided to go shorter, which I'm loving! I hope you're all ready for your bank holiday weekend in the sun!✨

The other night I wrote two letters, nobody will ever read them because they aren't going to be sent. The first was to someone in my past and the second is to someone who is neither here nor there - forever floating around in my thoughts. I felt that I had unknowingly let them/their actions have an effect on me. Tired of being stuck in the same loop I decided the emotions I had attached to them needed to be released. So I sat down, opened my journal, took a deep breath and asked my higher self "What emotions do I need to release in order to move forward?".
Whilst writing the letters I realised I was actually grateful to these people for being a part of my life because they have both taught me a valuable lesson - I deserve to be treated better. I finished both letters and went to bed. I felt lighter when I woke up, less stressed but what happened over the next few days surprised me. Vibrant new people started to pop up into my life out of nowhere.
When we focus on situations which cause us to feel inadequate in someway, we put an energetic block towards other opportunities from taking their true form. Maybe there's something in your life that you want to be different? Just a thought. Have you tried writing about it? ✨

A quick question for you.. Have you noticed a change this year? I mean in the sense of people and their success? A shift where those who are being their authentic selves are now receiving recognition for it. I think 2018 is going to be the most creative one yet, I've witnessed so many people using their talents and sending their creative energy into the world - whether it's music, writing, painting, holistic therapy, dancing.. you name it, I think this is the year to start something beautiful. In other words GO FOR IT - whatever "it" is! ✨. P.s here's the side of my face because I couldn't be bothered to stand in the snow any longer πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜




Morning beautiful! I've been "hibernating" lately. Disconnecting, switching off, doing as much or as little of whatever I feel like in the moment. It's the time of year when I like to reflect, acknowledge, forgive and move on. I'm also making a conscious effort to get back into journalling. So when I'm all snuggly at night in my bed I like to write down my thoughts in my journal. I finish each entry by listing three positive things from the day - no matter how big or small they are. I wonder what I'll be writing tonight..βœ¨πŸ’š

I fully intend on spending the day listening to reggae, munching food & being kind to myselfπŸ€—. Let's not forget the journey. P.s I'm referring to the life journey, although I love the hair one too. I hope you have a lovely weekend!πŸ’•
