If you ever feel like you don't have anyone to talk to...

Life can be hard sometimes.

Sometimes things can feel utterly overwhelming, like you're carrying a huge weight on your shoulders that feels heavier and heavier each day. Sometimes it feels like you're trapped in a dark place and no matter which way you turn, there's seemingly no way out. Sometimes it may seem like there's no light at the end of the tunnel, like the happiness that you crave is just that ever so slightly too far out of reach.

I want you to know, or at the very least I want you to believe in the possibility that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes that light is just too small to see or it's obscured by something vast that just keeps getting in the way. But it's always there, even if you can't see it. Happiness will come just that little bit closer one day so you can reach out, grab it with both hands and never let go.

If you ever feel like you don't have anyone to talk to, please know that you do.
I'm always here, just an email away.

  8. Oh Jennie, I really needed this today! 2014 hasn't got off to the best of starts and I have been having more down days than usual recently. Everything seems that tiny bit hopeless and I'm really tired of being rejected for jobs and long distance is really taking its toll; I can't make any plans at all and basically feel as if my life is in limbo.
    Your blog makes me happy anyway but this post is so nice to read. I wish you a lovely day, today and everyday; you're so kind and you deserve it. xx

    1. I hope things start looking up really soon, I'm sure they will! It can be so difficult when to a certain extent those things are almost entirely out of your hands. You'll get that opportunity soon, I'm sure of it <3

  24. This is a very lovely post...I sometimes feel lonely and need to talk to someone because we moved many times these last years and it's so difficult to make new friends when you live in a city where you don't know anybody...And it's a great pleasure to find blogs like yours, to read, during my free time.

  25. Aww super sweet post- it's nice to know that you're not just a blogger but also a friend. And this reminded me of this one quote I read, "If it's not ok in the end, then it's not the end" :)

  33. I think everyone gets down in the dumps at time, with me it's when I think of the future. I'm starting another course april, it's only a short course but it's cost a heck of a lot of money, money I wanted to invest into a home etc... but I thought to myself 'how can I think of moving out when I'm not in the job sector I want to be in?'. It's all just baby steps though I think! I'll be moving too which I've never done before and being a timid character it'll be hard.

    Good to know you're always there for a chat, feelings are very much mutual there Jennie :)

    1. I totally think you're doing the right thing and I have no doubt that you will adore your course and it'll be worth the money! You'll get to where you want to be <3 x

  34. Definitely a good idea to document the last years of your 20's too. 5 years will really fly by I think, quite a scary prospect!
