Quick Post – Blog Re-Brand

BeachLife. Balm & Blyss

It has been close to a year since I posted on the blog, and if you haven’t already noticed…I have made the decision to re-brand from TheGlowDown to Balm & Blyss – blog design makeover coming soon!

In the meantime, this is just a really quick post to get the blogger ball rolling again.

Recently something within my life has genuinely made me take a look at my own values and outlook, and what it is I genuinely want from life.

A quote that I have seen this week has kinda struck home with me that I thought would be cool to share…

“It’s not about wanting to escape life, but not allowing life to escape us”

This feels so true to my mindset at the moment! So in keeping with the quote, let’s see where life takes us!

What is on my mind..

Mindful

I wanted to do a quick post here on TheGlowDown on how I feel my general outlook in life has changed over the past few months – and for the better. In a nutshell, I feel more calm, relaxed and positive about my future but mainly where I am right now in life.

I feel like time is far too precious to not go after what you want or to fret about outcomes that you can’t control or affect. I feel like too often we can get caught up in the small things (which can be totally understandable) but it’s about learning to let them go.

I am a believer in working hard and creating your own path in life, and in creating that journey, reflecting your personal attitude is key. And sure there will be the odd bump in the road but it’s the learning to accept, respond and move on that strengthens and reinforces your purpose.

And on one last note – I want anybody out there to know that giving in to negativity that may present itself to you in life is not weakness. Strive to do good and be passionate about what you believe in. Chanel your energy in to the life and surroundings you deserve – true happiness to me lies within being content within yourself in each and every moment.

Sweeeeet 16th GlowBites post! The piccie I’ve used above is actually one that one of my best friends took on her travels in Aus and I can’t believe how amazing and kinda surreal it looks! – – Thought I would use it to try and get in the mood for summer (ages away I know!) and also because this weeks GlowBites is based on positivity and mindfulness and I feel like this pic radiates positiveness and serenity!

So I was inspired to pull together a few quotes that I have loved recently, and this post was kinda inspired too by┬áposts from Annie at Blawnde and Kaitlyn at WesternWild – and who doesn’t love a motivational/inspirational quote…that’s what Instagram and Pinterest are there for – that and selfies!!

Quote Collage

>> Sorry that the quote on the right of the middle row isn’t so clear…it reads,

“How do you know when it’s over?”

“Maybe when you feel more in love with memories than the person standing in front of you.”

It’s hard to pick a fave out of all of these because they’re all so meaningful in different ways! Personally I’m a bit of a worrier and an over-thinker so it’s good to remember to let go and that whatever the worry it won’t change things! And that whatever the circumstance, you deserve to be happy and treated the way you want to be – something I think is really important. I esp love the very middle photo – as an extra hour spent awake creates the possibility for you to do anything…you can do so much with your time if you learn how to, and we all get ┬átired and caught up in things but it is seriously an hour of your life that can be spent more wisely and with intention.

Fave quote/poem

But this one is my absolute favourite – basic message >> don’t try to justify your own happiness by filling it with other people who may not meant to be, don’t look for your own happiness in others. Once you open yourself up to creating your own happiness, you attract the right ones in to your life which help complete it [life]

So on that big-ass philosophical note I will end it there for this weeks GlowBites! What are your favourite quotes, I would love to know!
