Firstly, thank you so much for taking an interest in this little blog of mine and for joining me on my adventures and misadventures. I truly do hope to inspire, educate and encourage you to take up the challenge of creating your own reality!
Now for a snapshot of the girl behind thetiffanytimes. I was born in 1986 (making me the big 30 this year!) and I had a very ‘normal’ childhood with two loving parents and an older brother. At school I was a good student, a bit of a book worm if I’m being honest, and i struggled to fit in. This is something i have continued to struggle with, always feeling like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole.
I have been constantly torn between my desire to see the world, to feel my heart race, to experience as much as i can and the pressure I felt from society to do the conventional things (get a job, get a house, get married and have babies). As a result, I spent the past 10 years yo-yoing between phases of travel and adventures and phases of trying to ‘settle down’. While I wish I had the courage much sooner in life to just accept that convention, tradition and rules were not for me, I do not regret the journey I have been on to come to were I am today.
I have tinkered with the idea of starting a blog for many years but out of fear of failure and the confusion over who I was and what i stood for, I never did it. Turning 30 was the kick in the butt that I needed and I am done with trying to fit in, with apologising for choosing to live differently and with making myself feel small so others can feel big. I have experienced some amazing things in my life which I am incredibly proud of and I have learned many valuable lessons which I am so excited to finally be sharing.
Until Next Time XOXO
