You hear the term “living my best life” thrown about all over social media these days.
If you put in the #livingmybestlife or #bestlife into Instagram, you are likely to see highly edited fashion shots, the odd luxury car, almost definitely some exotic scenery containing blue skies and blue seas and the odd bikini/muscle selfie.
We have all faced severe FOMO and comparison issues in our time – especially when looking at social media accounts and watching reality TV. It’s hard not to wonder whether you are living life the right way.
Life wouldn’t be fun if everyone lived life the same way!
Here at The Daring Life, we want you to know that your “best life” is whatever the hell you want it to be.
Whether it’s eating a whole large, stuffed crust Dominos pizza in your PJ’s, spending your time painting in the garden or just simply getting an early night – your best life is whatever you say it is and you shouldn’t feel sad, ashamed or anxious about how you want to live.
On the blog, I share my own personal growth journey and hope that there are parts that you can relate to. Our aim is to inspire you to live life on your own terms and not by anyone else’s expectations.
WHO AM I?
Hi, I’m Nadine Adele I’m a blogger, journal addict and semi-professional daydreamer from Northampton UK.
I work for a Council in the day and in the evenings, I make tea and eat care with elderly residents that have Dementia at a local care home.
I started blogging in 2008 over at Hello Tigerbloom while finishing my Art Foundation course and transitioning to University. It was my online diary and a visual scrapbook where I shared mood boards, bucket lists and reviews on all kinds of different things.
I left Tigerface behind and started The Daring Life in 2017, which started as a Law of Attraction and Mindset blog and has been through a lot of transformations until I found my feet!
Leopard print, journaling, Netflix, art, sewing, baking, listening to music, spa days, Bailey’s cheesecake, the beach, salted caramel green tea, penny machines, pillows, Cookie Jam, documentaries, hair weaves, exotic holidays, Barbados, Quorn Crispy Nuggets, blogging, cocktails and slumber parties.
Bad manners, aggressive drivers, smelly feet, licorice, air-con that’s on waaay too long (dries my eyes out), unsupportive people, part-time friends, paying for overpriced parking and coffee (yep – I’m not a coffee fan at. all.)
