Why I Started Those Positive Thoughts

I had reached my mid-twenties and I realised that I was feeling lost,  I had no idea what to do next or where I was supposed to go from here. What was my path? What was my purpose?  So I created Those Positive Thoughts, to share my thoughts and personal growth story, with the hope that I would find myself along the way and to share my journey with those who can relate.

Since then I’ve become a firm believer of self-development and in order for me to discover who I really am and what I want from life, I will keep pushing myself to the next level and challenging myself to do more and be more.

The Journey

Those Positive Thoughts has changed a lot in the past year, when I first started I was still finding my voice and I was forever changing my categories. Yet as soon as I started writing about topics which I was passionate about I soon found my perfect audience to grow and develop with. Not only did my blog take a number of changes but my Instagram was forever changing too. I wanted my images to mirror the purpose behind Those Positive Thoughts and after many attempts I finally found my style, well for now anyway!

I couldn’t be happier that I stepped out of my comfort zone and  jumped into a world that I knew nothing about. Pushing the publish button has completely changed my life. Those Positive Thoughts has allowed me to grow and has given me amazing opportunities which I will forever be grateful for. Here are the highlights:
