As you may have all seen, in the past week or so I’ve made a few tweaks to my website and even created a Facebook page, because I have decided to 110% throw myself into this project. I have said it before, but this time I really am going to try and write as often as I can. For one main reason. This is what makes me happy.
I have always been a very realistic person - not overly positive or overly negative, quite a balanced mix. But being a realist doesn’t get you anywhere. You are kind of stuck in a grey zone, always compromising in a bid to avoid failing, resulting in not succeeding or living life to the fullest. So, without sounding like an annoying, happy clapper, life is amazing, 4am wakeup kind of person, I am going to try to change your perspective on how you live your life in the next three minutes that it takes you to read this. Three life changing minutes people, listen up.
For anyone on the cusp of a new chapter - whether that be work or career wise, relationship wise, lifestyle wise - whatever it is, it can be very daunting. Making sure that the decisions you make are the right ones often leads to stress, which leads to anxiety, which often leads to you feeling very low, feeling like you are stuck in a rut, or even a little depressed. This project, magentaporter.com, is yet to make me feel like this, and I hope it never does. However, I am well aware that it is going to take a lot of work for this to really take off. So far, I am yet to receive any harsh criticism, and that is thanks to all of you, my friends and family, who have supported me and welcomed this website with open arms. However, I am sure that there are people out there who are probably thinking that I am being very arrogant in thinking that I will truly succeed. This does not bother me. I am not bothered anymore by the thoughts of others. I am not bothered by the little setbacks that life gives you. Because I believe, I really truly believe, that I am going to make it. Because no one ever succeeds believing that they are destined to fail, do they?
For all of my Instagram followers out there, you may have noticed two things. Firstly, that I am obsessed with Instagram and am most likely, probably addicted. After all, my Instagram name used to be gram_addict. But that had to go, because I realised that it may have other, unintended connotations. Secondly, you may have noticed that I have recently gained a newfound confidence, a confidence that has allowed me to post solo pictures, something that I rarely used to do, as I always felt like I needed someone else in the picture to really make it a good one, a worthy one. To get a positive response out of it. With this, comes the more fashion-focused photos that I have been posting recently, with a more fashion blogger feel about them. I know that I am not yet considered a successful blogger, content creator, glorified opinion giver or whatever title you want to give me. But I realised, if I don’t start acting like it, believing in myself, that I am right on the road to becoming just that, how will I ever fulfil my dreams? So, I made the decision to start posting, as if I already am living the life that I eventually want to live. I don’t care if you think I am pretentious, arrogant, or a bit of a joke, already acting and posting like I am some well known influencer. I acknowledge that this is probably how at least a few, negative people, are thinking when they see my Instagram posts, or even when they see this website. But I simply laugh at this. Because I know, I believe, that I one day soon will be succeeding in this field, on a larger scale. And the only way to get there is to act like I already am there.
My new positive frame of mind and attitude is not just random. Something very weird happened last week. I was browsing my parents massive book wall, searching for art books that I could use in one of my Art History essays for university. After I had selected a few, I began to walk back to my bedroom. But out of of the corner of my eye, I saw this blue spine, that I was, no joke, drawn to. I couldn’t walk back to my room without grabbing that book. Out of the hundreds on the shelves. I had never seen it before, even though I look at that book wall every day. It was The Secret to Teen Power by Paul Harrington. It was like my destiny to pick up this book. So I thought why not. That night, I began to casually flick through it. Little did I know that my entire outlook on life would change.
The book, if you haven’t heard about it before, is about the Law of Attraction. I realise that this blog has gotten very lengthy, so I am going to wrap it up here. However, this is just part one. I have decided to take a leap and believe in this law of the world, in order to attract my dream life. Next week, I will delve further into this whole Law of Attraction idea for anyone who is interested, and tell you how it is already changing my life, for the better. So like the Facebook page (below) and follow me on Instagram if you want to hear more about it.
I am not one of those annoying, always smiling, and always-on people. No one can always be happy. But hey, you can try.
