Life's too short not to live it

Hi Beauts.

Today is a bit of a different post for you all, it's going to be a bit of a rambley, long winded lifestyle post so I apologise in advance for getting all sentimental on you :P

On Monday I FINALLY got my first tattoo, if you follow me on twitter or Instagram you may have seen it, if not here it is:

I've wanted a tattoo for the longest time but have always changed my mind about what to get. I didn't want to get one just for the sake of it, I wanted it to mean something. 

I decided to get the word 'Live' for a number of reasons, every quote I love is to do with living life to the fullest or taking each day as it comes. However the main reason: life's too short not to live it.

We all have crap going on, some worse than others but we all have two choices. Let it drag you down or turn it around and refuse to let it stop you living your life how you want. Too many times I've chosen option A, not any more. Where does worrying about something get you? Nowhere. One quote my Nanna used to like was 'Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but doesn't get you anywhere' Very true right?

My point is, if something happens that you can't change, don't waste time worrying about it because it won't change the outcome. You just waste time worrying and being unhappy. If you want to do something, do it or you'll end up with regrets. If you like something that someone else doesn't, good it means you have your own personality and you're not a sheep. 

Never let anything or anyone stop you from being happy, or living YOUR life the way that YOU want too. Life's too short!

Have a great weekend Beauts!
