Hello Autumn

 As I welcome Autumn and accept the fact my summer tan is fading I start to get excited about what's to come. Since coming home from Italy I've had to adjust to practically everything. I did encounter "Reverse Culture Shock" but I'm getting over it now and feel I am settling back to Irish life (Travel bug still lingers though).
I have been very fortunate with opportunities since coming home too, attending my first Irish event in Cork and finally meeting bloggers I had known through social media, being invited to be a VIP Blogger at the Athlone Fashion Trail, Attending the Easilocks Event in Dublin and meeting more incredible bloggers. So far it's been a whirlwind but I'm loving every second of it.

I have been reflecting on CiaraSwalsh as a whole for the past month and I realise that I can't live without it. It has given me so much confidence, it has opened me to so many opportunities, I've had the chance to work with great brands and I have found a newfound motivation for my blog (Not that it wasn't there before but I can see bigger and better things on the horizon).

I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm so glad I bit the bullet when I set up CiaraSwalsh not giving a s@*t what others thought and started something I have a true passion for. Of course I have met people along the way (close friends and strangers) who didn't support my venture but I thank those people because it gives me the determination to say "You know what? I'll prove you wrong and show you just how great I can do this". I believe everyone in your life is there for a reason even if they are a negative influence. Generate that jealousy/hate into something positive and don't dwell on the harshness of comments. Look at them to build yourself to be better than ever.

I've seen CiaraSwalsh grow, and I believe it will continue to grow because I will continue to put my whole heart into it. I also have some people in my life (close and strangers) who support me wholeheartedly and I feel so blessed to have them cheering me on. Without them CiaraSwalsh wouldn't be where it is today. Each and every follower/supporter has helped me and CiaraSwalsh grow.

The moral of the story is, do what you want to do. Whether that be a job you would love to have but your parents/friends think is a bad idea. If you wanted to move abroad but are afraid of what others would think. Of doing anything you feel in your heart and are scared of being judged. I say do it! I know this sounds cheesy but we only have one life and all of our clocks are ticking. What do you want to do? Stay stuck in your terrible job? Stay stuck in that college course that you despise? Apply it to any aspect. Do what you want and forget about societal norms. You can do anything you set your mind to. Believe, think positive and own it!

  1. I do trust all of the ideas you’ve introduced for your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
