And then there's Sarah, who writes over at A Cat-Like Curiosity, and she's also quickly become one of my new favorite people! You should check her out too! Find her on twitter, pinterest, facebook, and etsy!
Hey there people - my name is Sarah and I blog over at A Cat-Like Curiosity. I blog about all kinds of things really – DIY projects, Monday Mantras, Etsy Lustings, and many many more things. Basically whatever pops into my head.
I am so pleased to be able to do a guest post for An Unstyled Life. I must say she has the most stylish of unstyled lives I have ever seen. Yay to that!!
The main focus of my blog is one of curiosity (hence the title). I am always looking for new things to try, new ways to look at life, and new goals to achieve. My blog began when I stumbled across the book The Secret. I started to write as a way to document my experiences of trying to live with the techniques of this way of life. It really was a turning point for me. Up until then I had been feeling really quite stuck. I felt that I had messed up my career, my finances were a nightmare and I just wasn’t really sure what to do about it all. I didn’t really think there was anything I could do. I had succumbed to a deep depression and was really very ill.
Then I read The Secret. It really opened my eyes. I must preface this with the fact that before this I had NEVER EVER read any kind of self-help book at all. I had some pretty negative views on them actually, and to be honest thought that only weirdo’s would read such a thing. How wrong was I?
I started to try and use the techniques in the book to overhaul my outlook on life, and the results were just what I needed. I have been on a journey from being seriously depressed to being full of energy, ideas and inspiration in a very short space of time.
Since then, I have read and gotten involved in lots of inspirational Life Changing ideas – some I have blogged about, others are more private. But the journey itself has been pretty cool.
So – what are my main goals at the moment? Here they are in a nutshell:
- Keep training and get to my goal weight.
- Continue to work on and make a success of my blog and Etsy store.
- Make a success of my Debt-Free ASAP plan.
- Complete my novel “Snapshots of Sophie” and submit it to agents.
- Crochet blankets for my house.
- Learn to produce better digital art work on my new android tablet.
I feel as though I am on track to achieve these goals. The top four are my core goals I think. The others are more projects/hobbies to keep my creative juices flowing!
I really can’t explain enough the difference in my outlook and my life since starting this blog and connecting with like-minded people who want to achieve more, do more and live a more fulfilled life. I am entirely a different person to be honest. Sorry if I sound all evangelical or something – but I just wish I had known how much happier and fulfilled I could be a long long time ago!
When I’ not working towards my goals I enjoy cuddling with MHI (My Handsome Irishman), watching Game of Thrones or any kind of CSI style show. I also enjoy crocheting and am currently making a gigantic throw for our sofa.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek into my blog and my world. Feel free to head on over and say hello.
