The Power Of Doing


Hey guys

So I wanted to do a more chatty post today and discuss the power of doing.

I've always been someone who chooses flight over fight 99% of the time and I tend to blame anxiety and insecurity. This has been something I've battled with since school and I've found it very difficult to shake off. Because of this, I tend to never do anything out of the ordinary and stay firmly in my comfort zone.

My life has been the same revolving "boring" circle the last 7 years, I had been stuck in a rut but something has changed recently, and I've started to DO things that I didn't think I would ever do.


An example of this is, ever since I was 17 I was told I needed jaw surgery, but I never went ahead with it. I always discussed it with people like it was something that never was, and never would happen.
I now have an appointment booked with the hospital to discuss options and possibility of me getting jaw surgery. I know this will be a massive ordeal (metal braces again for 3 years, and of course the surgery), but something in me has the passion to just do it? I now think to myself, why didn't I DO this sooner!




What I'm trying to say in this post is that don't brush things under the carpet. This is coming a very anxious, shy, insecure and indecisive person. There may be things that I won't do because I just can't allow myself to but that's ok, I don't want to pressure myself or others, small steps. If there's something you're not sure of trying, doing or changing, maybe this is a sign to just DO IT. OK.. this is not sponsered by Nike k.


I hope this inspires at least one person.

  1. I can certainly say this post inspired me, I'm so so bad at putting things off and just hoping for things to change themselves. But of course, they don't. I'm thinking about getting a new job, but realise I really need to commit to looking!

  2. Girl, you inspired me! I'm going through the kind of the same thing right now and it was nice to read this! I'm honestly just very confused about what to do in my life and it's very hard for me to commit to something. I think I've always told myself that I'm fine with change but in reality and deep down, I don't think I am! It's something I'm definitely working on but it's a process!

  5. This is such an empowering and inspiring read beautiful babe! I'm so happy you accepted a new job and made a change that's leading you into a new direction and giving you the freedom to do more things and making opportunities possible, that is incredible and you should be so proud of yourself :) It's also so brilliant you're looking into jaw surgery, another positive step ahead for you for sure. I'm definitely one of those people that wants to do a lot of things but puts them off/never gets around to doing them and your post has definitely given me a wake-up call to stop brushing them under the carpet and really take action :) So excited for you to complete your list, so many fabulous changes I know you'll smash them all! <3 <3 <3

  7. It's definitely easy falling into the rut of procrastination and putting things off. But there is something so liberating in getting things done, in productivity - it's quite an addictive feeling.
