We all love to get to know our bloggers a little better, so with that in mind, I've decided to sit down and do a little Q & A session on a Sunday. From now until either I, or you lovely lot, get bored of this, I will be answering questions from this list, as well as any you feel like asking! Go on, it's an excuse to exercise your right to be nosy! If you missed it, you can find #1 here!
Got a question? Comment down below or tweet me @saloca, or even drop me a line at salocainwonderland[@]gmail.com ((remove the [ ] ))
What gets you excited about life?
Making plans. Nothing could get me more excited about life than what it's about to bring next! Planning for holidays, outings, adventures, moving out and buying mundane things like spoons and cushions for my own home. I know not every plan comes to fruition and some of the best things that happen are spontaneous and un-planned, and I love those things too, but I still love making plans for the future. It's exciting to look ahead and have all kinds of things lined up that put a smile on your face.
Besides, I'd rather talk about the future than the past, it keeps you living in the now and moving forward!
What life lesson did you learn the hard way?
I think one of the hardest things I've ever had to learn was to be myself. I've talked about this before, how when I was younger I had huge self confidence issues, as in, I had ZERO self confidence. Nada. Zilch. I didn't like myself very much and I was convinced for years that to be happy I had to become someone that wasn't me. Truth is, it wasn't until I really started being myself that I was actually happy!
It's so easy to try and be anything but yourself, to do what others tell you when they tell you to do it, going against that grain that's been the 'norm' for so long is hard, it's scary and there are times you think it would be easier to just fall back into old habits and go back to how things used to be - but you must persevere and stay strong, it's seriously worth it in the end!
What do you wish you spent more time doing five years ago?
Writing. I must have started and stopped about a hundred blogs - can you imagine where I might be now if I'd have continued with one of those like I have now? In fact, scrap that, 5 years ago I wish I had carried on with about a million different plans and ideas I had that I failed to see through to completion. I've kept paper diaries for close to 10 years now and reading back over some of those entries are painful, all those ideas I had that never even got off the ground! Who knows who, what or where I would be now if I had gone through with some of them?
It frustrates me to no end! BUT, that being said, everything happens for a reason and who knows what I wouldn't have now if I had gone through with some of those plans?? You could go round in circles thinking like this!
Until next time,
