Does life need to be so complicated?

October 8, 2016


I feel like I constantly allude to this all the tine. The idea that life seems so complicated, but when we take a step back and completely strip life down.. is it really?

I feel as though life being complicated is a very personal thing. As humans, we can naturally make situations complicated as well as societal expectations also playing a part. For example, relationships. I have always said this, but some people who love each other aren’t together, and some people who don’t love each other are together. That’s the sad reality of it all. We sometimes seem to make excuses as to why we “can’t” be together with someone but if you really think about it, people can find a way to be together and make it work. I don’t know, maybe I’m very idealistic.

I am living in this very liberating mindset at the moment of “just do it.” In fact, it seems to be my life motto at the moment. I wanted my tattoo for months and as soon as I was 18 I thought, “what’s stopping me?” and got it. I’ve wanted to travel to Leeds for so long, and I finally had an opportunity to go. I wanted to make excuses when it came to not going but I thought, “why not?” and ended up having the best time. I go on spontaneous days out because I can. 

Everyone seems to tell me to enjoy my life at 18, and trust me, that’s exactly what I am doing. I feel like my life starts now and there’s no point in complicating things and making excuses as to why I won’t fulfill something I’ve wanted to for so long.

Ever since I’ve decluttered my life, I have felt a lot happier, and I’m pretty sure the people closest to me has seen that change in me too. When you think about it, you have this amazing life in front of you just waiting to be written- and you can write your story however you want. You can either live life complicating things and live in regret, or you can just do things because you can. Determination.

If you take anything away from this post, I hope you reflect on life in general and where you’re going. I hope you ask yourself, “is this really what I want?” and if it isn’t, fix it. Things are never as bad as they seem, and you can honestly get through anything. Write your story and make it pretty damn amazing because you deserve nothing less.

In some ways, complications are the product of a humans personal choice. We always have a choice, and we always have chance to change things if we wish. Sometimes it’s not easy. Being in love with someone who doesn’t love you, isn’t easy. Trying to reach for your dream job and getting knocked back so many times that you begin to loose hope isn’t easy. But keep fighting. You’ll find a way to get there in the end.

Love and happiness always,

xo, Becca

  1. This is so inspirational becca! I have so much planned for when I turn 18 in a few months and I’m getting all my travelling sorted. I’m so proud of all you’re achieveing, keep it up girly x

  2. I love this! I definitely think complications are a choice, sometimes a choice I make out of habit because things seem too simple, but I’m definitely starting to simplify things more which starts with how I feel about something. Great post, lovely <3

  3. I agree that if you want to change something in your life you need to try as best you can to change it!! I’m big on thinking positive and making your own happiness. I do think though that its not always as easy to change something depending on the situation, ie – my mum passed when I was 13, by 16 I had no where to live, situations like that, that aren’t by choice are harder to change but with a positive mindset its possible to turn it all around so what you’re doing is great!

  4. Definitely agree with being spontaneous! It’s also nice to see that you know what you want to do with your life and you realise that it’s not infinite <3

    I'm 19 so definitely relate, live life how you wish and not for others. As long as you do not harm anyone else it doesn't matter what you choose to do 🙂

  5. Hi Becca. You are a very wise 18 year old. Wish I had been at your age! I am (much) older now and have finally learned to keep EVERYTHING as simple as possible. Life really doesn’t have to be as complicated as we often make it.

  6. Really fab post! Love your ‘just do it’ mentality, definitely going to try to think like that more often. We often take life much too seriously, and we only get one so may as well LIVE it!
