Hey loves,

This is my third entry in the summer writing challenge! I decided to explore a few topics that are very close to me. I also added in some linked collections for further inspiration


Day 3 = Write about something that is really important to you. Why is it so important?

My friends are incredibly important. Laughing with them are always moments that I absolutely cherish. I feel incredibly lucky to now have friends that I can be myself with. Having these people that support you when you're feeling down and cheer you when you're doing well is an incredible feeling, and very valuable to me.

My family are what keeps me grounded. They remind me why we are here: to love each other and lead the best life we possibly can. I know I can always fall back on them if something goes wrong, that they'll support me even through the tough times. It's also really nice having people that know you incredibly well, that you can just tell anything.

We would be nothing without our health. I try to take care of my body the best I can, and give it the best chance possible at fighting off any illnesses. I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with endometriosis, which has only made me realise more the importance of health and how it cannot be taken for granted.

Stories have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would always entertain myself and my sister with tales I made up, wandering through the house and the garden on a grand adventure. As I've grown older, I get my story fix through any means possible, whether it be movies, tv shows, theatre, books or writing them myself.

What is life but a grand adventure? I truly feel that by keeping a sense of curiosity and drive for exploration and adventure, I will live a life that I am proud of. Being able to go outside my comfort zone is how I grow. It may be scary to do something new, but by doing so we can discover amazing new experiences. And isn't that what life is all about?

That's all for now, thanks so much for reading!
