Everyone’s Doing SOMETHING

*Apologies in advance for this brain dump of a post!*

Here I am on a sunny Sunday afternoon interrupting my usual blogging schedule to write this spur of the moment post. My blog is my beauty haven, my little place I can do what I want and for me to just ramble on and see who reads but above all else it’s a place I feel safe to say what I want. So instead of writing posts and scheduling tweets *yawn* I’m procrastinating and reading posts.


I’ve read around 20 posts now from all different kinds of bloggers, different niches from all over the world and everyone seems to be doing SOMETHING. I can’t help but find myself looking around at my four walls wondering what the fuck I’m doing. No really, what am I doing?!


People are travelling the globe, joining the property ladder, decorating their homes, getting married, having babies, going on holiday, going out for brunch, shopping, meeting friends and doing their thing. What’s my thing?


I’m starting to feel like the world is moving on along, the time is moving faster yet I don’t actually seem to be going anywhere. I rarely go out, I don’t have friends outside of blogging and I guess I’m just feeling like I’m doing everything wrong. How can I make something happen? What can I make into my thing? How can I go out with people…when the only people I know are bloggers scattered around the earth.

I need something. But what will that something be?! 

I need to find my ‘thing’ because if I don’t I’m just going to end up this fossil that does nothing. So I may be a little sporadic, not as active but will still be posting on my blog.



Do you have a something outside of blogging? What is it? I’d love to know!

    Totally relate to this. Its so tough when you look around and see the successes of others and then look at yourself and wonder what successes you have had. I hope you find your thing and remember not to be too hard on yourself. Your blog is super successful (in my opinion) and I always love reading it.

    Apart from my fiance – I don’t have anything outside of blogging either! If I’m not blogging, I’m reading, or shopping on my own. I know exactly how you feel – I often feel like I am doing life all wrong too but I don’t think you, or I, are. As long as we’re happy, who cares if we aren’t doing the same things as other? But if you’re not happy with how things are, CHANGE THEM! You can do it 🙂

    This is so how I feel right now.. me and my partner can’t afford to live together, can’t afford to go on holiday, I don’t really have any friends of my own to hang out with and he’s at work all week and tbh I’m just BORED. Isn’t it just poop??? x

    I could’ve written this post – I feel exactly the same! I think comparison is the route of all evil in a lot of ways because it makes us focus on what we’re NOT doing, instead of all the good things we are doing! I bet there are people that look at us like we do others. Important to focus on the victories of all sizes, what feels tiny to us may be huge to others! 🙂

    You call this a “brain-dump” of a post, but I actually relate to it a lot! (I love brain-dump posts, btw, because they tend to be the most real). I mean, I work, and go to the gym, and I write, but that’s really it… I got divorced last year, don’t have a ton of friends, and haven’t had a vacation in 3 years! Social media is horrible for making us feel like we’re missing out on something, or like we’re somehow doing life the wrong way.
