Being true to yourself

Another chatty post. Long-term readers may have noticed that I'm not exactly the girl next door for various reasons. I dress pretty eccentrically and I'm tattooed; I have unconventional interests as well as the fact that my house is like an eclectic pastel paradise..

Friends often say things like "I wish I had the confidence to wear that" or "I'd love to do my living room like yours but I'm not sure if my family would like it"

My advice is.. honestly - humans judge each other constantly. No matter what you do, you will be judged for something. In fact, you are already being judged so you might as well do what you want and be happier. Once you accept this simple fact then it really does set you free.

To illustrate my point, as a child and adolescent - I would be catergorised by others as the 'girl with the glasses' or the 'short girl with the northern accent'..now I'm the 'tattooed girl' or the 'girl who always wears flowers'. People love to lump others into categories and this does involve some level of judgement.

Get a tattoo, paint your staircase baby blue, wear your leopard print coat and your favourite floral dress at once. You will be judged no matter what you do so enjoy! Everyone in this world is different - embrace it and be yourself.
