Maybe changed my life is slightly poetic or over-the-top. But perhaps, made me stop to think or helped shape me as a person. Or a new mantra to live by. That 'ah-ha' moment.
"There are 300 million people in America. And 6,000,000,000 in the world. I promise you, you’ll love someone else. You’ll meet new friends. You’ll find co-workers and neighbors that are awesome. If it’s too hard (or if someone is making you feel bad) walk away. There are a million other people out there who won’t make you feel bad!"
3. The blog post that made me go cruelty-free
I've spoken before about how it was Louise who woke me up to the realities of the beauty industry. Way back in 2012 I stumbled upon her Twitter, then had a nosey at her blog and my purchasing habits were changed forever.
4. The one that reminded me that I needed to trust my gut more
You know people sometimes come with red flags? And that sometimes you'll see these red flags but not do anything to keep this person at distance (or worse, fall madly in love with them)? Yeah. Anyway, here's Alle bullet pointed how-to for spotting terrible people. She was basically saying things I already knew, but hearing someone else say them gave me the confidence to put them into practice.
5. The one that just changed my outlook all together
When I started penning this post I knew I had to throw in some Gala Darling. But I've been struggling to pick just one post. While Gala has went a bit more voo-doo and witchy on us in recent years (not my cup of tea) her writing from five years ago did turn my life around. If I have to pick something it would be her Love & Sequins series, which isn't even technically a blog post and isn't even up for purchase anymore. Second to that, I almost chose the post that changed my stationary habits forever (I'm not even exaggerating). And this one on her six year blogiversary stands out too. Everything I know about life I learned from this lady. Stationary and all.
Are there any blog posts out there that moved something inside you and taught you lessons that have stayed with you?
