I am a walking contradiction

I am a walking contradiction.
Sometimes it confuses other people and sometimes myself.
It's okay
Live life your way
It's okay to be a total contradiction.

When it come to wellness, it isn't clear cut and black and white. It can often be quite contradictory but it works. It's balanced. Balance breads happiness. Contentment.

For example:

I love green smoothies but I happen to love the occasional pork pie.
I love cooking vegans meal but still eat bacon every now and then.
I rarely drink but when I do I'll be out all night.
I love quiet nights in but also get twitchy if I haven't had a night out for a while.
I am a lone wolf. Who can feel lonely at times.
I can be loud and hold a conversation. I'm also shy and am often keep quiet.
I try to be cruelty free but still use carmine and beeswax (I do try to avoid it) in a few products and still use my old conventional make up (when will I run out!?)
I want to be natural but use a normal deodorant.
I crave to be minimalist but I am a bit of a hoarder.
I will save save save my pennies and them go a bit crazy and splurge with my spending.
I am laid back, until I can't take the crap anymore.
I'm book worm and also a television nut.

I want to work within a field where I can dedicate by day to someone else. To make someone feel supported. Feel good in themselves. I have decided that this is the kind of person I want to be, this is what i want to do with my life. However, I know I still have much to learn. Especially when it comes to relaxing more and worrying less myself.

We are all walking contradictions. And do you know what? That is what makes the world go round. We enjoy all sorts of different interests and hobbies, we all have different motivations. We all live is the huge melting pot of difference and similarity, that's what makes us unique.

Don't feel down if you don't fit a certain mold or don't agree with someone else's opinion. Don't worry if the way you live your life doesn't match with what someone else is doing. If you find yourself fancying a fry up with your chia pudding, go ahead.

A side of bacon with that veggie burger? 
Why not? 
Do you see what I'm getting at? 

Putting limitations on your self, will get you no where fast. If a certain way of living is not working for you, alter it, tweak it until it fits with how you want to feel. With how you want to live.

Live your life your way. Even if one action or practice contradicts the other. If may confuse outsiders, who look in on what you are doing. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you are happy on the inside and that will beam out of you inside out!.

Go on, contradict yourself! There are no limits.
Live life your way.

  2. Are you a Gemini by any chance? :P I am, and I feel like contradictions is what defines me. I had a love hate relationshio with my major in Uni, I don't want kids but I see myself having them someday....

    1. I too am a Gemini and have always felt like I'm contradicting myself, feels like I'm two personalities in one - a true Gemini :) x

  3. I am a Libra Scorpio cusp but I still feel contradictory at times. If you're following horoscopes maybe it's because one is about balance, while the other is more fiery and enigmatic? Either way, I can definitely relate to this post. For example, I am a night owl but love mornings. I love working out, but hate sweating. I enjoy creating and being productive, but spend hours sucked into the Internet.

  4. Great post! I had this very conversation with a colleague of mine (I'm a scientist who believes in healing stones and the power of karma). You've inspired me to create my very own post like this. I'd love to give you credit if you'd be okay with a copy-cat?
