The beginning of living your best life.
In a world of social media and phone addiction, it's hard to escape comparing yourself to other people and wanting the things they have, the clothes they wear and the life they have.
I'm almost a bit of a hypocrite. I scroll through Instagram, wishing I were the people on my screen. I used to think like this all of the time.
I used to wonder and wish what my life would be if I had the riches to live the kind of lifestyle you see on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter every hour of the day.
Then I realised something. A few things in fact.
No. 1; That kind of life, the material things, the clothes, the food and everything else doesn't have to cost that much money. If I thought about how I went about it little harder.
No.2; That kind of life, isn't going to be the only thing that will make me happy. It would sure help! But it's not going to be the only thing.
From 20 I always wanted to live the luxury lifestyle. I always wanted it to happen right there an then.
You quickly learn that it really doesn't work that way.
What I have done since 20, is work out how I can get my life as close to it as possible, without breaking the bank.
Now you can call it what you want. Faking it until I make it, what ever.
If I look like I own a private jet, maybe one day I will own one!
What I've also learnt since I was 20.
It's not all about the material things that make you happy in life. The food you eat, your mental health, how you like your job are all things that make up your life. These things shouldn't be overlooked.
At all ages, life is a grind. It's not easy. But if you get the basics in life right, the material things will follow.
I'm not saying I don't still look longingly at my instagram or that I've got absolutely everything figured out.
What I can do, is share with you all that I know to look your best, eat a great meal and live a great live, all without breaking the bank.
We all want to live a better life. I hope you enjoy reading.
