I’m Shannon, a 23 year old just trying to find her way in life.
I started a Fashion and Beauty blog in 2013 and I loved it until “life” as I call it happened and everything changed. But it’s what happened in those last 5 years that have led me to making this blog.
I chose the name “My quest for inner happiness” because inner happiness is not just saying you’re happy, it’s feeling it, genuinely and honestly feeling it inside. Anyone can fake happiness or put on a smile for the outside world but no one knows how you truly feel.
Life is a journey with ups, downs and everything else in between. There may be bumps along the way but I’ve learnt that these can make or break you and I’m not about to let them get the better of me when there is so much more to experience in life.
Just to put it out there I have no qualifications when it comes to anxiety and depression but what I do have is first hand experience. I know how it feels and I know what has helped me through it up to now. I might even go back there but hopefully I now have the knowledge and ideas to make sure I never feel that low again.
The reason why I wanted to write this blog in the first place is because even though I had supportive family and friends, at the time I still felt so alone and like no one understood how I was feeling. I want anyone who is feeling the way I was to know that they’re not alone and if even one thing I say can help someone feel better then I’ll have done what I set out to achieve.
I don’t claim to know all the answers and won’t say follow my tips for guaranteed results because life doesn’t work like that and depression definitely doesn’t work like that. You can’t pick and choose when you feel good and how can you “get out” of your depression when you don’t understand how you got in it in the first place. All I will do is say what has worked for me and what helps me get through life’s challenges and hopefully some of them will work for you too.
If you have any questions or just feel like talking to someone then please contact me.
I’d love to hear from you.
