The Confessions Of Wonder Woman...

'Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says 'Oh crap, she's up'

This is a quote I came across the internet a couple of months ago and has since remained at the top of my thoughts. It's the kind of quote that really pushes me at everything I do. 

Everyone has there off days, you know the kind. When it feels the world is against you and everything you want to achieve is unattainable. Today felt like one of those days. In the midst of drowning in paper and books I hit a wall and being a typical emotional girl, had a little cry.

And that is A-Okay! I brushed off the tears, made a cup of tea, ate some biscuits and I was on my way again.

I always say that you should never let anything or anyone bring you down. I've had my fair share of 'You're not good enoughs', 'yeah right' and 'You're not ever gonna make it' thrown my way. I take that as fuel for working to what I want.

I write this blog in hopes that it motivates someone out there, whether it's one reader or many. Never let anything stop you at achieving what you want to achieve.

I was told in high school at a parents evening by a horrible grumpy old chemistry teacher that I shouldn't try to go too far in education. I should leave high school and maybe go into beauty at a local college. My mum was outraged and took great offence. As I was in year 9 I didn't really care. I found dealing with the social side of of school much more of a challenge then the academic side.

But look at me now. I'm at one of the UK's top universities, rocking a degree and having the time of my life working towards a future career. I'd love to go back to my year 9 chemistry teacher and show him how wrong he really was.

But i'm past that. People bring you down because you are above them. I'm above being told I'm not smart enough, I'm not pretty enough, I'm not 'cool' enough, I'm not thin enough. Blah Blah Blah. Cool story bro, tell it to someone that cares.

I'm being thrown into the future, as most people are, completely blind. I'm scared and clueless. But I can't wait to take on the challenge and see where life takes me. This is the kind of feeling you should take on too. When ever anyone makes you feel small, makes you feel ugly, makes you feel insignificant. Just smile and walk away. Because you, yes you, are unstoppable.

It's going to be a bumpy road and it definitely wont be easy. Some days you will feel like Wonder Woman, some days you will want to hide away from the world. But I believe you can make. So should you.

I apologise for the overwhelmingly soppy blog post. It's just one of those days.

'Use your smile to change the world, don't let the world change your smile.'
