So a few posts back I did a blog on how to get yourself out of a rut and things to do when you're ever feeling down that might help to pick you back up again - and it seemed to have helped a few of you which is absolutely brilliant.
I started my blog off as a way to talk about things and discuss my own personal thoughts that were mainly fashion and beauty based - but as of late - I've been really feeling as though I want to turn this blog into something so much more than that.
I've realised that as much as I love fashion and beauty, my passion seems to be falling more towards that of helping other people, travelling, food, photography, connecting with others and just making them happy but also finding my own sense of inner and self-happiness.
Something that has also caught my attention is that I've never really shared anything about myself with you guys. It's always been about the superficial "What's Hot, What's Not" blogs ect and so i'd love to start sharing things about myself with you and if you feel like that sparks you to do the same in return, then please do! I'd love to get to know you all!
So to start off - here are some basics about me:
NAME: CARLY JANE SUN-AH LANCASTER
AGE: CURRENTLY 19 YEARS OLD
D.O.B: 31ST MAY 1994
BORN: SEOUL, KOREA
LIVES: NSW, AUSTRALIA
OTHER: I was adopted at the age of 3 months old and have been in Australia ever since and couldn't be happier :)
Something not many people know about me is that i've always had a love of helping others. Even from a super young age.
I have always had a dream of owning my own charity, going overseas to places that are still in this day and age, completely poverty stricken and experiencing first hand what it's like and perhaps gain a greater appreciation for what I have in life and the life that i've been born into. I think it could be a real eye-opener, but such an amazing experience to have.
I've also always wanted to travel to the US and work in some 'Soup Kitchens' which, if you don't already know what they are, is a place for the homeless to eat and even get some accommodation that night ect. and i'd just love to listen to their stories and hear what they have to say. It's amazing how much simply listening to a person can change their day and your own.
So that's just a tiny little insight into who I am. There's too much to put into one blog, so I might do another whole blog dedicated to that. If you'd like me to do so - please let me know in the comments and also feel free to send in a few questions you'd like me to answer :)
So what's the aim of these blogs, you ask?
Well, they're really just about me and my journey to find myself, get myself out of my seemingly endless depression and out of my 'shell', find happiness and adventure and documenting it all as I go.
I really believe that if I can do this, anyone else who might be feeling the same way I have been can do it as well.
I have no idea. In regards to my blog - i'm going to keep on doing these types of blogs as well as the ocassional fashion/beauty based blog but i'm aiming to focus more so on these blogs.
I hope to travel a lot and document my travels for you guys and in doing so, hopefully find myself and my own happiness again :)
I'm thinking of starting a YouTube channel as it might be easier to communicate that way seeing as I will probably have a lot to say about everything haha.
I'm so excited to see what happens next, myself. I used to be someone who had to have a plan and always have everything mapped out. But since some recent events have happened and have turned my world upside down a little, i've changed my views and perspective on a lot of things.
So that's it for now - i'm incredibly sorry if this blog seems a little all over the place this week!
Trying to find the words to express how i'm feeling/what I want to say can be a bit tricky sometimes as I get a lot of points and questions running around my head all at once which can be slightly overwhelming, haha!
But hopefully some of it made sense and hopefully you guys want to come on this life journey with me and perhaps even have your own.
If not now, then when? ;)
Also! if you wanted to ask me some questions for my next 'Get To Know Me' blog, please leave them in the comments below and if you'd like for me to start a YouTube channel to document this journey, let me know!
Goodbye + Love x
