Underneath It All...

Sometimes it takes a really dark day to realise life can be more challenging than you ever expected or imagined it to be. One that sometimes seems so terribly unfair, especially when the undying efforts you put in, often go unsung and unnoticed.

I have realised we all have our own struggles in life, everyday each one of us is fighting a battle of our own. Without these tests and challenges, we wouldn’t ever be the real version of us. Life is tough, but sometimes you have to find the strength within.

A warm and heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who was kind enough to offer me support, advice and kind words of both reassurance and encouragement on my last post. It was a difficult issue for me to address and part of me felt incredibly sad that it had come to that.

On a much lighter note- I have realised maybe, just maybe it’s time I let some of my barriers down, and embraced a new me. The shy girl in me would have never posted a photograph of myself on this blog. Maybe it's time for change.



  1. Ah, a picture of you Alice, a treat! There is a lot of love in the blogosphere, drink it all up and grow :) x

  2. Hello new confident Alice, pleased to meet you ;] XXX

  3. Yey for confidence - I know I could do with some more at times!

  4. Lovely to see you, Alice! You look adorably cheeky here!
    I was shy for years and managed to convince myself otherwise! x

  5. It's so nice to see you Alice! I was very shy when I was young, but age and experience give you more confidence plus you realise that life is too short to worry what others think of you.
    Sorry to hear life has been treating you so shabbily, I'v e never known the employment situation to be as bad as it is nowadays. All we can do is keep plodding on and hopefully things will be ok in the end. x

  6. anytime :) Will write a nice long Christmas letter soon xx

  7. Hi, honey! You have a great blog, very interesting and you are very beautiful! I'm your new reader! If you do not mind, I'll wait for you in my blog!))))

  8. Aw, just read your last post. It's so sad when you get rejected, your attitude is fantastic xx

  9. It's lovely to see your face on your blog!

    I am so sorry you are having a rough time of it at the moment, and I'm so glad you have so much support - the internet can be a pretty good place at times! Fingers firmly crossed for you on the job front.
