Not A New Beginning, Just A New Chapter

Saturday, March 04, 2017 23 Comments A+ a-


Who Am I?

Hello? Welcome? Hi? Okay, welcome. My name is Jessica and this is a brand new chapter in my life. If you didn't already know, blogging is not something new to me, I also have a joint couple food, travel and lifestyle blog with my partner, James, but this blog is all me, my life, my story, my experiences and my mental health.

It has taken me a while to realise how much I wanted to do this for myself, so today, which is actually my 23rd birthday, I thought this would be the perfect time to start this new chapter. I used to own my own private blog way before the food blog, but it was kept away hidden from the public and only a handful of close friends had access to it, but this time with control, I'd like to share these thoughts with you and whoever wants to know.

Why Have I Chosen This Blog Name?

I am not or can I ever quote myself as a religious person, do I believe in God? Yes (woah maybe a bit too personal for the first post) but in all honestly, most of the main quotes I live by are God related, and which one of the quotes is actually based on how I got this blog name;

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference."

With this blog name, you as the reader, can interpret that however you wish to take it. This is my very own personal blog, nothing food or travel related - just me, my thoughts and experiences in life. I can only assume that you're here based on finding me through my food blog but I feel like there is only so much I can share and show you when we are food based, and I have so much more to share - unfortunately you won't find anything fashion or beauty related on here neither, as much as I wish I could be, I'm just not that into things like that (but let's be honest, I do read many many beauty blogs wishing I was them) but don't hold me to that..

Why Have I Created My Own Blog?

This is just simply something for my own, somewhere for me to be open about things I don't usually share; my mental health and difficult life situations, as well as that, I would like to share my life path in general, the future and my absolute love for planning.

What I Can Do For You?

As well as sharing my own story, I'd like to share yours, if you are someone suffering with mental health issues but don't have a platform to express or you simply want to share a message, anonymously or known to all, I have created an Ask.fm, in which I can see and answer/share your stories here on this blog if you wish.

~~~

I hope you'll join me in my life journey, as I take you on this personal ride.
