"We are at war with what comes most naturally to us."
Ever since I read the above quote in Rupi Kaur's book, "Milk and Honey", I've been unable to get it out of my head. It's been made worse by the fact that I've seen evidence of its truth not only in my own life, but in the lives of other women as well.
Seeing as we are coming to the end of March - the month of International Women's Day - I decided to dedicate this month's vlog to addressing this topic by sharing my own experiences of being at war with myself, and suggesting possible solutions that we, as women, can use to solve this problem.
As always, my hope is that my story helps you move closer to being at peace with yourself, as well as what comes most naturally to you. 😉😊
"Debz Meets World" turned TWO!
Reading that statement back both surprises and excites me. 😃
It hasn't been long since I started blogging, but it's been quite the journey - one that has taught me way more than I ever thought I could learn in 24 months.
Although my initial plan was to release a video introduction of the website when I was launching the blog, I ended up making the decision to postpone it & to do it at a later time when I felt like I could better explain the motivation behind creating this blog.
That time is now.
Below is a vlog detailing the back story, as well as the vision, of "Debz Meets World". I hope that, after reading it, you'll know me a bit better and have a better understanding of the blog & its content - and most importantly, I hope that you'll join the discussion. 😊
P.S. Thank you for all your support so far. It means more than you know. 😘
"I just booked your flight. You leave tomorrow morning," said Mum's message.
The news was surprising, to say the least, seeing as a week before then I hadn't even been sure I'd be travelling at all! 😯Nevertheless, I mentally hopped on board the last-minute plans, and started packing for my trip. 🕶🎒🛫
We were going to Portugal for Christmas - one of the European countries that I've been looking forward to visiting for a while now. 😃 🇵🇹 I have to admit, though, that I didn't know much about it before we travelled; and that fact was emphasized more and more during our first few days there...
I was just getting ready to settle down in my room when the doorbell rang.🚪
As far as I knew, none of us were expecting a guest, and so I debated answering it for a few seconds. Just then, my housemate - who had only just gone into the bathroom - suddenly came out & informed me that she'd ordered a pizza online a few minutes ago, and suspected that it might be the pizza delivery guy at the door. Her suspicions were confirmed when I answered the door bell phone; and before she could even ask, I informed him that I'd be right down to get the pizza from him on her behalf.
I still remember how I felt knowing that I was doing her a favour - no matter how small it was. It's the feeling I always get when I can be of help to someone. 🤗What I hadn't realized, however, was how much this feeling changed when the roles were reversed...
I find it easier and more effective to write down how I feel rather than to say it.
