Let's talk about...Growing up!

Hey loves! I'm posting something a little different today, its something I wasn't going to share with you initially but I've changed my mind because you guys are all so lovely. So I mentioned that I love cooking, drawing, and all the other girly stuff that it says in my About Me but I never mentioned that I live on a farm and the closest city is about an hour and twenty minutes away. I find it quite funny because most blogs that I read are all based in the city and then here's me; the little farm girl from the west coast of New Zealand (lol).

One of the reasons why I started a blog was to share my thoughts and views on life, what I love doing, and also to take away the stress and anxiety of growing up. On this blog I feel as though I can be myself and actually be the person who I would like to be that is tucked away inside of me. When your about five or six no one really cares about who wears what and what they do, but when you get to the age of being fourteen or fifteen its not only the stress that comes with schoolwork its also the fact that if you wore something different compared to what everyone one else is wearing to school then boom you get judged so much. I hate the way that society has developed, like we should be building each other up to become strong young woman and men, but sadly we are putting each other down and making that other person feel terrible about ourselves. Another thing that really annoys me is when a girl starts hating on another girl just because they have the same crush, like honestly that is so so so stupid that girls put a boy that might not even be worth it first.  


These pictures are of me and my pony Smith, who I absolutely love! 


When I got to intermediate (middle school) I started to get bullied a little about being a Horsey Girl and people looked at it as a bad thing as being a horse so I started saying that I don't have a horse anymore and/or I don't like horses to everybody and within a few weeks it had all stopped completely and then people started mocking me about my pimples! :'( 


It feels so good to let that out, these were just a few of my opinions that I have on society and how it is turned into something ugly that needs to be made beautiful. So next time if your friends aren't saying nice things about someone else on how they appear don't join in, speak up and say something nice about that person. You are all beautiful and don't forget that, and be the person that you actually want to be!

Have you ever been bullied? and what do you hate the most about growing up and/or society? Leave an answer in the comments. 

Sunsets and Salty Hair,

  4. I think at one point in their life, everyone gets bullied. I'm in Uni now and I think the thing I dislike the most about growing up is that (especially in this day and age) people expect each other to be drinking and clubbing - something that I personally don't do. It's tough being in an environment where people don't really understand or get you. But at the same time you should never change yourself for anyone else. Plus if you love horses, be proud of it, right?! :)

Awe thank you so much, and I totally get where your coming from because its the same sorta thing when your going through high school like some people don't get why you don't do what them and everyone else is doing and it is quite frustrating! Your exactly right and yeah I should be proud that I like horses! :) <3

  8. It's refreshing to know someone else in the blogosphere has the same weather as me, I live down under. Love your story except the bullying, I was bullied too and hated myself that time. But I came out of it stronger and happier that I wasn't the bully and will never be. Thank you for sharing your story, you have a beautiful horse.

  9. Girl, opinions aren't facts so stop worrying about what people think about you! In that time when everyone else was making fun of you being a Horsey Girl you should be nothing but proud of yourself because you were special and unique! Look and find something positive in every situation! :)
