Ramblings of a 20-something lifestyle blogger

‘She Designed a Life She Loved’ 

I feel like I’ve been struggling a lot lately. I mentioned it in a previous post, the one where I shared the 5 things that make me happy.

I’m always tired, I’m majorly fed up in my job – I got moved back into a food department and I feel like I’m in square one again. I feel like I have very little motivation to be there and I think that’s the main reason I’m struggling. It’s draining me. The shifts are awkward, 99% of the people aren’t nice people to be around and I feel like I need a new start in a completely different atmosphere – with new/different opportunities for me.

As I was writing this post a cold called rang my door bell and as I got up to answer I knocked my freshly made cup of tea everywhere. I seem to be having a lot of these moments lately. 

Anyway, I recently found a quote – online; I can’t remember whether it was Instagram or Etsy.

This quote has been helping me a hell of a lot through the moments where I want to be anywhere but work because we all have to have a starting point, we all need that little bit of money coming in every month so we can do what we want to do. To me, at the moment all I want to do is design – well, decorate. I want to work around what we have in our home to design the way I want it. I want to start being more crafty, even if it’s just painting my wall, or revamping some old furniture.

But I also want to start drawing, painting, making cute little handmade gifts for friends and family. To do that, I need a work space. To create my work space – which will hopefully be rather big sized desk area in our spare room – I need money to buy the things I need. Therefore I need to keep going in my everyday job.

And one day I will get the life I love.

For now I just need to keep on going. Let’s go and make another cup of tea.

    I have been feeling the same way. this is a great quote and think I will adopt it. I want to be a journalist but struggling at uni. Life’s a bitch. But I think we’re strong enough to get there!

  2. Don’t worry I’ve been feeling a bit like that as well lately, sometimes I get in this negative funk where it seems like everything I do is wrong or it goes wrong or it turns out badly. It does always turn around though…eventually.

    It is great that you are finding stuff to make you feel more motivated and happier. I always think about this quote as well if I am having a down day. Good luck with all your decorating and crafting, sure it’ll turn out great!
