Not Saying Sorry For What I Love

I am now in my mid twenties (closer to thirty than I am 20 now, omg) but it is only, I would say, in the last few months (since lockdown I guess) that I have really found my style, what I love, and who I am. Sounds cliche right? I bet some of you are the same…

In my late teens and early twenties, I really struggled to find my feet, who am, and what truly makes me happy.

Like Moana says, know who you are. 

I used to be afraid of not fitting in, so I would follow trends, like what other people were liking, and I wasn’t really stepping out of my comfort zone as I was afraid of what other people would think of me. But since lockdown, and having os much time to myself, my mindset has really changed.

You may have noticed that a few months ago my Instagram theme changed, instead of creating posts trying to fit in with the rest of the world, I turned it into a platform that I was passionate about and really enjoyed, and you probably already guessed it, it’s now a Disney account. (With a hint of coffee and Halloween in there too!)

For me it was quite a big decision to turn my account into something that I knew not everybody would like. But it’s what I love, my passion. so I just went for it.
If people didn’t like it then fine, I really wasn’t offended if people unfollowed me, it’s actually good to unfollow people!
I was just terrified of being judged, made fun of, especially with the classic ‘Disney is for kids‘, ‘Grow up‘ but fingers crossed I haven’t had any of that. Or at least not to my face! And if you feel like that, then please just unfollow me.

I do have another account, which is personal and private, only for my friends and family. After all, i’m sure my friends and family want to see a section of me which isn’t Disney themed 🙈

What I think I am trying to say is, if you have a passion, or have something which you love so much, don’t be ashamed to shout it out to the world! Don’t feel guilty, or embarrassed, or ashamed. You do you.

Switching my account has been great for me! It has made me happy, and I have enjoyed creating content a lot more! I feel like I fit in somewhere, and I’m not alone with that I love. I have also made some great friends, who also have the same interests and passion as me, aka, they love Disney too! This has been so warming, and encouraging, and I am planning on meeting a few of them in the future (when it is safe to do so) which I am just so excited about.

I really feel like I am in a little Disney bubble, and I love my bubble. I won’t let anyone pop it!

I am just so glad that I finally found my feet, I feel comfortable with who I am, how I look, dress and act.

Everyone loves what they love, and let them love it in peace. It’s not offending anybody 🖤

What I guess I am trying to say is, I’ve found my feet, and I hope you’ve found yours too, and shout it to the world! Don’t hide it. It may have taken a good few confusing years (😂 ) But I think we are finally there!

You could love anything! Food, Disney (like me!), Films, Sustainability, Homeware, Cleaning, Travelling, Animals…Literally ANYTHING.

This subject is really close to my heart, that’s why I really wanted to write this post, it’s what i’m passionate about. How do you guys feel about this subject? Do you have something inside of you that you love thats screaming to come out and tell the world? 🤍

My DM’s are always open if you want to have a chat, love always, G x

    I LOVE this new side of you Gemma! Anyone who has been a true subscriber will know your love for Disney and it really shines through on your social media. I love Disney myself but don’t embrace it as much as I feel I should. After all, isn’t Disney where we taught what Princes and Princess’ were? Isn’t Disney where we all learnt valuable life lessons? As someone who has followed you for a while, I’m so proud of you!! x
