Lately I've been feeling rather uninspired by blogging.

As of the past few weeks, I've come to recognise the sheer volume of falseness within my online world. Suddenly it seems every second person is buying Instagram followers, and lying about their seemingly fabulous lives. This realisation has shocked me. It's hit me hard, and stolen my love of blogging in its wake.

I've given this shock a few weeks to process, as I could feel a change coming.

With all this falseness within the online world, I decided I want to be true to myself. Like everyone else, my life isn't perfect. It has its ups and downs, I have my highs and lows, but mostly I'm real and I want everyone to know that. I believe you, my dearest reader, deserve to really know me. So, who am I?

I'm a twenty-four year old typical Australian girl with far too many opinions. I am a vegetarian, and have been for an entire decade now. I love that I'm independent, that I allow myself to continue to learn every single day, that I'm strong willed, and determined. I hate that I'm lazy, that I doubt myself, and I'm terrified of absolutely everything that could happen to me. I have had anxiety problems and depression, but instead of seeing someone, I learned to overcome it on my own. Why? Because I'm also very stubborn. I remember when I was graduating primary school, I was asked what I wanted to be once I grew up. Although I had never thought of it before, I said very sure of myself, I wanted to be a writer.

As of the last six months, I feel I've really started to become the adult I was always meant to be. Mostly, I've started thinking about the future, and instead of it terrifying me, it actually excites me.

I dream of being surrounded by the sound of nature, the warm affection of animals, the smell of salt in the air, and someone I deeply love. I dream of eating food I've lovingly grown with my two hands. I dream of always having time for the things that matter. Ultimately I dream of slow living, which I didn't realise until just recently.

The Workshop Co. seeks to inspire the perfect balance between work and life. Ensuring that we create time for what makes us happiest, to spend quality moments with the ones we truly love, and to let go. Most of all, to celebrate the simple things in life. Adding slow living on top of travel to this blog of sorts, feels like a natural progression.

Let's travel the world together, eat well together, and live the best lives we truly can, together. x
