You hit a certain age in your 20's and then that's it. It's that nagging feeling. You try to push it away but it still keeps taking prominence in your train of thought. The plunging feeling knowing that you're a twenty-something and haven't quite achieved that 'something big' that the new age definition of success equates to. I, myself have been punched in the face by this horrible mind-set. And I feel like it's such a sinking tug of war. I try to remind myself that I'm still so young and have time to achieve whatever it is that'll make me truly content. I just don't know what that is yet... But then I'm constantly batting away with the fact that I'm not a 'success' yet. So as of yet, I can only offer help which I'm utilising myself to overcome this quarter life crisis!. So come on, *we've got time on our sides!*- 'Youth is something I never wanna take for granted. I just want to smile and live life'- Tyler, The Creator

A lot of people chart their life progress. There are tonnes of on-line platforms where people share snippets of their life. But having a journal is so much different. And an old school one when it comes to that. Something that is just for you. You don't need to share it with anyone else. It's all your thoughts, your desires, your needs and wants. No one to judge you. I was a huge diary penner as a teenager and as a shy unsociable person it was the most authentic outlet for me. And sitting back and having a look at the current social media landscape, it seriously worries me that young women won't be taking to this form of outlet. We're too concerned about emulating the success of things that aren't wholly real on-line than talk through the highs and lows of our day to ourselves. Here I present to you a couple reasons why a notebook full of your secrets is the best way forward- 'The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it-' James M. Barrie

Whenever I achieve something, I automatically think 'what next'? And in some cases that's extremely detrimental and I've learnt to slow down and appreciate my life right now and all the small and big things that I achieve. But I never want to let go of that feeling of wanting more. I didn't realise just how passionate I am about life. I want to travel the world, live abroad, meet different people, experience other ways of living...and all of that won't be accomplished from the comfort of my own home and pin-pointing further- my own bubble. And this fiery inner desire may come as a surprise to others around me. People who see me as closed off, 'shy', affected by past life situations...but the only way for me to work on those things is to embrace my 'itchy feet'. Hah nice saying, huh? And here are the following reasons why I'm okay with this desire and you should be too. Let's do this!- 'Sometimes it takes a heartbreak to shake us awake & help us see we are worth so much more than we're settling for'- Mandy Hale

I get it. Instagram is most definitely a highlight reel of most people's lives. A lot of primping, preening and posing goes on to take the perfect shot. But I don't necessarily look at it as a bad thing. I try to use it as fuel to better my life, not compare. And there's something about those beachy Instagram beauties that has me *insta fan-girling*. There's loads of women out there who post bikini snaps on Instagram, but the few I have mentioned in this post have that little extra sparkle.
A little bit grunge. A little bit spiritual. They're the types of beauties who would pick up a small bag and leave in the middle of the night. The type who welcome adventure. They type who would meet a handsome stranger and elope a week later. They take chances. They're confident. And they have the most captivating vision. There's so much more to just standing in a bikini and posing. There's the meaning behind it....'Sunshine and salt water'- Sahara Ray
