The girl in the rose coloured glasses

Updated: Jan 1, 2020

I guess you're wondering why I'm the girl in the rose coloured glasses. I mean why that title?

Well I'm glad you asked. Simply put I am the ultimate optimist. I turn red flags into pink {1} at the slightest sign of romance. I'm a daydreamer and a storyteller; an encourager and visionary of the brighter side of life; a creative and your biggest cheer squad (pink pom poms included).

The down side of all of this is that all this encouraging can be exhausting and in the end it has generally been to my own detriment...until recently; and that's why we now have the opportunity to meet. You see after all of these years of cheering on everyone else, reading self-improvement, leadership, spiritual, psychology and motivational books aplenty, not to mention the ever growing supply of encouraging podcasts, to try to work out how to be happy, I have finally reached a moment of awakening (God only knows why it took so long but hey its the journey not the destination right?!?).

I've always loved writing. From short stories in Primary School to my Honours Thesis in University, the heartfelt outpourings of emotions onto the pages of my many journals to the business submissions within my day job, I have loved playing with words. Along the way, I have had my fair share of hard lessons, tragedies, shocks, losses, chaos, laughter, successes and awestruck moments. Some of them have happened TO ME. Many of them have happened TO the people close to me, times of which I have generally discounted the impact TO ME.

In a way of processing these events I have developed an often-times lyrical method of storytelling, in an attempt to draw out the lesson from the latest drama or event touching my life. After all, for the girl in the rose coloured glasses, there is no failure only feedback {2}, and why not share the lesson with the people around me to assist them in not tripping face first into the clearly obvious pothole in the middle of the road. Generally these stories have popped up at the most inopportune moments when I have been overwhelmed with emotion or enthusiasm, (which I'm sure I will touch on at a later date), and from that many have said to me - girl, you should write a book!! Well in this new age world of bloggers and vloggers and influencers I decided that setting up a cute little website and sharing my thoughts, experiences and stories with you via this platform would be a good way to start.

So here we are sharing my first word in a format called a blog.

The major change of late is that I've decided to share stories to connect with others, rather than to moan about my dramas. The way I tell the stories has changed completely. I feel excited about the next steps.

Welcome to 'Rose Coloured Glasses'. I hope you get something out of this blog. Drop me a line and connect to this new community.
